Oh I was in the demo environment. Gotta pay for the live environment. It's actually dirt cheap. Thinking I'll play with it come my paycheck and see if I can get my bank data. I also figured out the API I'm using supports developer mode so I'm obviously going to have to give that a go first. But now I slep.
So I found this self hosted alternative to Mint. I got it running but it doesn't have much for apis to get your transactions out of a bank. But it's written in php and I'm a php Dev. Im jazzed because I found Plaid an API with a tolerably low amount of marketing wank in the way. Just signed up for an API key and learn me something. Maybe I can finally put some open source code out there.
its nice how you can root android and have some level of control over what your phone's doing but then you realise that about a tenth of the apps you want to use including your toothbrush app decided that rooted decides are a security concern and doesn't allow you to do whatever a toothbrush app does
I have plans for my dwarf fort. I had a vamp dwarf, didn't know what to do with it. Sent it to raid an evil lair alone and he got captured. I'm better established now and I have plans. I'm going to do like kruggsmash and infect my whole fortress. But then I'm going to wipe out all the evil lairs and conquer the elves.
uspol, drugs, alcohol, suicide
OMG, a study saying life expectancy is dropping in the US, because of the "opioid epidemic", alcohol abuse and suicides. Also, how the US government provides almost no support for struggling families, unlike basically every other developed country in the world.
From the article: [...] the particular decline among working-age adults has not been seen in other countries, and is a "distinctly American phenomenon"
This is so fucked up
instance block recommendation
There's a bot called "glowposter" living on gameliberty dot club that scans Fediverse instance DBs and sends "x has been blocked by y" DMs to both x and y.
The problem with this bot should be obvious, but it basically stirs up trash mobs and encourages harassment campaigns against people who block other users.
Instance admins should also consider blocking gameliberty dot club because it's a "free speech uber alles" instance.
