I just set up #Radicale CardDav/CalDAV server to store and server my contacts and calendar. Hopefully it works better than Nextcloud for this.
I was $today years old when I realized for the umpteenth time that the POSIX putenv() function assumes ownership of the string passed to it.
I keep forgetting this little detail, and it always leads to some headscratching before I relearn it.

I finally buckled and accepted the #Android 12 system update for my Motorola G200, only to end up without a working on-screen keyboard afterwards. Fun!

I just found out that the very, very useful, but supposedly GNU-only extension "##__VA_ARGS__" for variadic macros is also supported by #VisualStudio 2019's C compiler, as well as rather old #aCC compiler version A.06.15 from 2007 on #HPUX. Which is great, because those are the three platforms my program targets! ✅
