Pinned toot

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! πŸ‘

My wife asked me why I was speaking so softly at home.
I told her I was afraid Mark Zuckerberg was listening!

She laughed. I laughed.
Alexa laughed. Siri laughed.

Finally re-launched my site - now with an all-new blog, with much help from and Pelican :D

Oh for fuck's sake. So ProductHunt login is tied to Twitter, so since I deleted my Twitter account, I can't login. What's wrong with just having a goddamn password

When you use a secure chat application to facilitate your wedding event.

The idea of tablets replacing laptops or desktops drives me nuts

With #nextcloud you can use a video call instead of a password to verify the identity of a user before granting access to shared files! #security #privacy

My mind is like my internet browser:

19 tabs open
3 of them are frozen

& I have no idea where the music is coming from

To all the free software advocates. To the men and women and non-binary people who build the systems that I appreciate and take for granted every day: I love you.

I love you and I will give it all back, some way, one day.

The disastrous #AABill is here. It puts encryption and Australians' #privacy at risk, and lets police compel providers of free WiFi to hand over information on users.
ProtonVPN is a free #VPN that can prevent others from spying on your online activities.

I think I finally have #rust-lang support configured to my liking (for now) in #emacs. company, racer, lsp, lsp-ui, flycheck all seem to be working now.
Because I run emacs as a server I had some path issues and had to finagle when exec-path-from-shell-initialize executes.
I still have some issues with company and lsp-ui-sideline being wonky and misaligned, but it's good enough to work!
