    You're right on Aurora, it's an alternative to Google Play to allow downloading apps and updates from the play store without a google account, see their store page.

    (And it works wonderfully well if you have a dependency on a few gstore-only apps, and don't want / cannot have a g account)

    I collect locks I've picked in the past, one of them was locked on a friend's pencil case, and they told me that they'd let me keep the lock if I could pick it in front of them; still have it.

    I also collect collars, I love their aesthetic and comfort

    I think that the part that makes me the most mad is the fact that we are held accountable when breaking the law, but in its current state, it is simply impossible to even begin to browse / search it in simple... "human" terms, even less if (like most people), you're not familiar with legal jargon.

    So we get accountable for things we can't know about.

    I've never been able to find a reliable SSO system.

    The only road I take, for now, for self-hosted services central ID authentication is using client-side certificates or basic auth realm passwords. Sadly, not a lot of self-hosted web services support either.

    I've worked on a web UI to manage bare git repositories on a server.

    Basically, I wanted to be able to create/mirror repositories, edit their category / description / main reference pointer, and to rename and delete them.

    Since using something like gitea is simply completely overkill for hosting my repositories, I instead kept my gitweb/git-http-daemon setup and moved towards building another tool that would sit on top of my git repository storage.

    Single 2.5MB~ golang binary, deployed behind an authentication-enabled reverse proxy.

    With no javascript enabled, the website appears broken, even to provide the repository's source code. The "link" (I guess it is, I have no idea what it is) appears completely blurred, a black blob.

    Just a thing: I have as accessibility settings to say NO to any kind of animation since they literally make me puke. The incredibly heavy login display animation (ie sliding in) is really too much.

    I'm working on two projects at the moment.

    • A recipe book manager (web-based, HTTP / Gemini) / browser, with expected functionality to allow generating a PDF / epub book from the recipes through a dedicated export mechanism (probably using pandoc).
    • A hand-written note-taking software in C++/SDL2 (probably moving to SFML) as an alternative to Xournal++ (too limited and complex UI for my needs) and Concepts (no linux version).

    I was surprised at the design choice of MongoDB for sole storage solution. Why choose it over something more reliable?

    It's also pretty useful to spot companies illegally selling your data (e.g. the e-mail being leaked, but also other possible, more sensitive info, like names and such). Makes for easy reports.

    Sadly, 0MQ would require quite a lot of work on my side, as it's not available on janet or guile, the languages I use for automation. I'd need to make a bindings lib, and I'm really not into intensive coding these days, so I probably won't be bothered with it for a while.

    No. While I do use getmail for regularly automatically backing up my e-mails in a safe place, I don't use it for automation. For that, I wrote a small python imapssl script
