I've decided to share my "tweets" here. If you find this spammy, be sure to filter them out in your timeline. I will always use the 100DaysOfCode hashtag.

I think I have enough of a personal following to move some of my more "personal" toots away from public timelines. This is great! I'll still share on the public local stream/fediverse. Especially if it's relevant to my local instance, funny or important/informative.

Stay awesome and have a lovely day! 👍

Day 96: I had a fun day! Flipped my work system back to from - I'm much happier knowing I can usually have my way without too much monkey business. Explored a new tiling window manager (QTile), so I got my fix today! I'll post results later

Look at who finally figured out how to get mpd/ncmpcpp working ;) ;)

It's so good to be back in :archlinux:

Day 95: Oooh man, getting close! Worked at edits then carried on to teach a class. The kids and I walked through building a sort of "space invaders" knock off. Best class in a long while.

Australia just made Man-In-The-Middle attacks required by law. They call it "the ghost" and every #encryption connection has to be open to the government.

Good luck with that.


Day 3 of the same session of :debian: running between suspensions. The memory is still low, processes are stable...and apart from the uptime counter, no one knows it isn't a fresh boot...

Day 94: Geared up to go take on the 9 year olds again in robots ( Programming) and worked on a CMS project. Finished the day with a bit of work.

It's been roughly 3 weeks of Fedora :fedora: on my work machine. Overall feeling: It's not terrible. Could be a lot better, especially considering it's supposed to be cutting edge. Dare I say I'm even enjoying Gnome despite it being far from perfect.

When they say it's a testing bed for RHEL, it's the truth and it shows from time to time. If I could do it all again I wouldn't grab the latest release.

At the end of the day, however, I miss my Arch :archlinux: Maybe I'll go back? We'll see.

Day 93: More theme edits. Today I was pretty sidetracked, so I don't have much of a story to tell outside of that. High gear tomorrow!

good morning, this is a musical typewriter, no not the fun kind

Day 92: Did some client work and carried on to more theme edit requests. I'm currently modifying an existing theme. I love it when you tap a theme gently and all sorts of things break. I don't think this was ever built with outside devs in mind

Someone had shared a useful chrome app/service that allowed users to pay a lump some and distribute a fixed amount to their top x sites/content creators directly. I can't remember what it was called! Does anyone else here know what I'm talking about?

That feeling when you fire up your :debian: after it's been suspended for 2 days and it has 0 issues with that. Send me your XFCE hacks if you got 'em. This combo is nice.

I've seen some pretty new accounts lately. For those of you who are actually new, welcome to the Fediverse!

Interesting move, Epic. Too bad you don't support Linux, despite the fact Unreal 4 is completely cross platorm, Fortnite is not. I wonder if they'll support the open source community the way that Valve has?

I find it interesting how the media explodes when people make mistakes, but when they do something really fucking cool, no one says a peep.

Love him or hate him, $250k (CAD) goes a long way to help fight child labor in India.

Mastodon: "Does anyone know about a FOSS decentralized Tumblr?"
Me: "Why do we care about Tumblr, now?"
*A DuckDuckGo later*
Me: "Oh, typical. No newds allowed now."

Of course it's much more than that. The whole "who decides where the line for inappropriate is" has been a conundrum for the ages.

I'm curious though, what aspects of tumblr actually set it apart from an ordinary blog/microblog? At a glance it looks like a blog service like blogger, only it attempts to be "social".
