I don't want social media to get smarter, I want it to be dumb as a bucket of bricks. I want social media to have no goddamn idea what I want so it'll just give me what I asked for, like I wanted to begin with 😤

Ever had a client get severely snappish because you didn't reply to 3 emails that you didn't in fact receive?
Yeah, me too.
Strangest thing is, after being informed that no emails arrived, they continued in snappish vein. More so, in fact.

Interesting issue:
After a while, update checks to WordPress/ClassicPress API fail intermittently with CURL error 6 name lookup timeout.
Changed DNS, no effect.
Tried VPN, no effect.
Finally restarted Apache. Boom, all OK.
Seems XAMPP Apache needs periodic restarts.

I wanted to add a solid PHP framework to my arsenal. My shortlist was , & . So I spent an hour exploring each framework's online docs.

Uninstalled due to phone number requirement, smartphone requirement, bad noise cancellation, etc.
Recommendations for a desktop privacy-first decentralised FOSS messenger + video caller? perhaps?
