For real, though.

I have a PHP-based ActivityPub (micro)blogging service and platform I have begun work on. It is extremely early stages, because I do not have a high rate of code output, but I DO have good project organizational skills and structural design.

If you have interest or experience in PHP, CSS, or Regular Javascript and want to help make a modular, extensible alternative to Mastodon, hit me up. I would be happy to discuss my ideas and hear yours.


@thomasfuchs The display itself (not the asinine stand) is quite nice and reasonably priced for what it is especially considering its a retina display along with being ultra wide gamut, etc.; it is something most (as in upwards of 99%) of people do not need and won't really be able to use if they get it. It'd be nice if they had a not-so-ridiculous display for the majority of their pro users to use, though.

@thomasfuchs Except the U4919DW is not a P3 wide gamut display like the new Apple display. It's only "high-end" because it's huge and expensive. Apple's new display is somewhat comparable to color grader displays used in film production but not quite there.

Updated my Mastodon install to 2.9.0... ahh single column...

@cassidyjames I backed lifx on kickstarter years ago, and I’ve yet to find a color changing led bulb that’s anywhere close.

Well, now I can sleep since I stupidly decided to upgrade my OS at 11 PM. That’ll teach me to not look at the clock... at least nothing bad happened. *knocks on his head*

I’m only just now using Mojave (I had the mistake of having an Nvidia gpu... at least according to Apple :/). I tried dark mode for like 10 minutes. It seems to accentuate the modern macOS’ complete lack of visual contrast.

I've seen someone yesterday complaining about one of his colleague doing something like that


but TIL it might be the best way to deep clone objects in Javascript


@Toum I learned this not so long ago, too, then realized some aspects of my object wouldn’t translate to JSON. JavaScript is surprising... OTL

Interesting to see this explosion of new open-ish licenses.

@thomasfuchs I went the hackintosh route almost exactly a year ago. It’s okay as long as one isn’t concerned with updating instantly. Wouldn’t suggest for most. I had an iMac before and hated not being able to fix it. Had a hard drive, fan, and display go out in it. I’ll never buy a computer again I cannot quickly fix. As a former Mac Pro 1,1 user I knew if they ever made one again it’d be out of my price range for a computer and sure enough it is. Don’t regret building my own.

@mike Depends on what I am doing, but typically I have 20+ open, including a few web apps in panels in Vivaldi. Tab stacks are my friend, especially when researching. I do close tabs often; I just have a lot going on in my browser.

@nolan I know I’m too stubborn. I do check Twitter from time to time, but I rarely interact. It’s toxic and too frustrating to use like I used to. When I first started using Twitter most of my friends weren’t there. I made new ones, but the rest eventually came. I’m not sure they’ll all come here, but I’m okay with that.

Positive comments about Linux 

I used to remember being excited to see what Apple announced even if I wasn’t going to buy it, but I’m not the least bit interested anymore, especially in iOS.

@fribbledom I sure hope we can fix this country, but it's going to take more than just voting I fear.
