Am I the only one who thinks that Omicron sounds like a really bad Decepticon?

Okay, why say "web browsers are hard to make, you need a huge budget to do so" instead of

Chrome wasn't built in a day

?

I feel like its a blessing and a curse to be developing a fediverse project alone.

I'm very fortunate to have the audience I have, not many projects have this, but it can get tough.

I feel so alone sometimes, my partner doesn't get why I feel so proud sometimes, because I solved a problem or made a small improvement.

None of my family and few friends have made an effort to join Pixelfed, it makes me appreciate the fediverse even more.

Thank you ❤️

So then, do you like this keyboard?

It's very good. Of course now and then it gets a touch elaborate.

What do you mean?

Well, I mean occasionally it seems to have, how shall one say? Too many keys.

I don't understand. There are just as many keys as are required.

There are in fact only so many keys the fingers can press in the course of an evening.

But this is absurd!

My dear, young man, don't take it too hard. There are simply too many keys, that's all. Cut a few and it will be perfect.

Are you developing websites & applications for the web?

Are you a Linux or Gods forbid, Windows user?

Think about testing your applications and websites in Epiphany. It looks like "Safari" is 20% of the browser market share.

What works in Chrome may break in Safari and be a real pain in your ass.

Side note: I wish FireFox had this market share. At least WebKit is open source.

I'm seeing an increase in the amount of accounts signing up specifically to spread anti-Muslim hatred. The signups themselves appear legitimate – it's clearly a human typing in their reason to join and not just a bot.

We don't tolerate anti-Muslim hate speech on this instance, and never will. Those accounts get banned as soon as we find them. If you see something, report it, and we'll take care of it as soon as possible. Take care everyone.

"Web developers are like, the worst. IT people post a lot of stuff on the internet. Security post a little bit less stuff on the internet but developers and web administrators and web admin, they post everything on the internet. It's ridiculous."

Hey @LemmyDev Don't suppose there's a chance we can put a handlebar mustache on the Lemmy project's logo/mascot?

Got my is now an reader, thanks to github.com/skeeto/elfeed!

I've even used elfeed-org to configure my list of feeds the org-mode way: github.com/remyhonig/elfeed-or

My only gripe is that people don't seem to put plain RSS feed links on their sites anymore. I have to dig in their source code to find the "alternate" meta tag and copy/paste the feed from there.

Here is a list of verified fundraisers to help people impacted by the BC flooding: gofundme.com/en-ca/c/act/bc-fl

I have no clear sense of how to pick one so I did so somewhat randomly.

No wonder Jews end up complicit in the Christmasisation of Hanuka, if it's the only way to get the rest of you to notice it exists.

I realise that capitalism will always cater poorly to minorities, but I'm literally just asking for 10cm of shelf for a few boxes of candles next to the many many metres of red tchotchkes.

Saw both Shang Chi and the Eternals. The next phase of the MCU is looking pretty neat. Lots of characters and plots I haven't read before

The bird site is full of web 3 hype and it's driving me a bit crazy
