I already use Krita for painting, so it's nice having a better-functioning version of it now.

I wanted to buy an AMD card before I decided to make the switch, but this sort of forced my hand. I am going to miss Photoshop and Illustrator on this computer, but I can work around it with my other hardware and have solutions in the works for it in the long term.

Been an interesting day. My hackintosh set up crashed and burned this afternoon. I'd been working on a Linux install for months now in virtual machines and on other hardware including an install script for setting up my main machine in Linux. Hadn't done the switch because of time constraints. Aside from getting the nvidia drivers to work it's been mostly okay.

If Mozilla wasn't the only thing standing in the way of the death of the Web after seeing this post I'd tell them to go fuck themselves. After laying off people because of executive and senior management failure they write this PR speak bullshit.

This is what I use to listen to music every single day, it's light, resistant, repairable, standard, carries 64GB of music and will play music for nearly 100 hours.

I paid 16$ for it.

@galacticstone Same. Reddit is a big one. They keep making the mobile site worse and worse just so they can track you on the app.

Wake up this morning, and there's a fresh war going on. Great.

Does the new Mac Pro come with a diamond-studded case? What about its wheels? Are they gold plated? The price of this thing is stupid.

Take a moment to consider the profound impact each of us has in the fediverse.

The fact we can communicate across the world using open source technology is pretty amazing.

We also have a responsibility, as developers, to ensure platform privacy and safety are legitimate priorities and not just buzzwords used in marketing.

We can do it better than Silicon Valley if we step outside our bubbles and listen to the people. The fediverse depends on it!

I think it's a sign you're getting old when terminology the younger generation is using grates on you. Guess I've been old all my life.

Hello, World!

That's the entire source code you need for an HTML document that displays hello world. Thirteen bytes. It works in all web browsers since the beginning of time.

Doing this with a modern website building library will run you into the megabytes range.

Are modern website building libraries worth increasing your overhead by tens of thousands of times? Is writing 300 lines of code ten thousand times easier than writing one?

Just had my work computer somehow delete my user, preventing me from logging in. Never seen that before. How's your day going?

@kel@toot.cafe The biggest question I have is how long are Google, Facebook, et al. going to be signed up for it because they're part of the problem, not the solution.

"Because websites had to either become apps or self-optimize for mobile, web design declined from its creative, more variegated heights to become flat, highly minimalistic, and multi-platform, and the results are, frankly, fucking boring."

Loved everything about this post. A great homage to the old, user-centric web.

@xuv I chose something else, but I initially went with freenas. I wasn't pleased with it because I didn't have the funds to feed it a gargantuan amount of memory just to run a filesystem. The support forums were of the RTFM kind, so I bought a license to Unraid.
