    Working on an ActivityPub client that I hope makes it trivial for folks to run their own. Tumbler meets Geocities like thing. Mostly it's just to let me play with libsodium

    I've made this silly thing https://paste-lang.org/

    My current role has me writing lots of ad-hoc code examples to show larger business processes to less experienced devs.

    Using the Project language had problems of over thinking. Writing plain English left some communication issues. So I made PASTE which allows me to avoid the in-project mental noise and describe more succinctly than English.

    It's WIP

    This may be true but, loads of Perl and PHP stuffs "Just Work" out of the box with the system provided packages - rarely does one need to reach directly for CPAN or PECL to get things to work. So maybe the expectation that a system provided language (an LSB one at that) should not require special care and feeding is reasonable? Maybe it's not the Python team screwing over the users but the devs of the specific Python apps/packages that don't play nice with the distros?

    I play this stupid game called Rocket League. It's cars that can jump and they have rocket boosters - to play soccer. It's free. It's got some ranking so you measure yourself against the global pool. And there are these alternate modes like Ice Hockey and Basketball. Very silly. I like games like Mario Kart and Twisted Metal and this fits in their realm. Stupid, fun and low commitment. Love it.

    Gmail, by default, doesn't show remote/linked images - but you can easily change, they prompt on every message with them to enable for this sender, or always

    When doing mass email I find its always better to leverage an existing MTA like Postfix rather than build all that. But you still SMTP to your Postfix.

    I looked in this datadump for myself and a few others. I didn't find a bunch that I expected to. In 10 active facebook users I know I only found 1 match.

    Haha, and Beck with those last tracks that have long silence before some crazy noise. If you "fall asleep" listening, snap back like...wtf!? Oh, music.
