We’re in Greece for #GUADEC2019. A beautiful—if a bit warm—day to get nerdy with GNOMIES.

The OFFICIAL DOCUMENTATION is so lacking, I almost didn't believe this was a mature project. It only covers the basics, that's it.

XCB documentation is so sparse, I am now searching through other people's code in GitHub. Haven't done that in years.😆

having a minor panic attack as I read about how git realized five years ago that they needed to finally stop using sha1 but never actually did it

cool I've never received a single lone congratulation before

Interacted with a medical AI agent today for preliminary diagnosis, and to book a doctors appointment. The whole experience took only 2-3 mins, without any phone calls, or waiting in queue.

Use Signal. It's good. We use it for text and phone and video calls with family which is great cos it works all over the world regardless of what SIM card I've got in. Plus privacy and encryption and all tat good shit but it's such a no-brainer to use even my boomer relos can handle it.


Mind blown.

Also, I give up. I guess the browser _is_ the new OS. Now the question is, how can we make browser more like in terms of ergonomy, control and interoperability? Because it really sucks to have to click around, to have near-zero control over the computing environment and near-zero interop between various services.
