shouting electrons into the void through thousands of miles of cables

To those who say that Windows is user-friendly, I reply that I just tried to download Eclipse 2018-12 and it gave an obscure error saying Java 7 runtime wasn't found. It opened up a file browser so I could *browse for it*.

Really?

oh my, seems mastodon is overloading my secondary server

That fan is LOUD

wtf chris siebenmann has a second cspace and it's about *anime?!*

Maybe it'e expected that it would take some time to understand, though.

I think I have a big problem with reading other people's code.

Like, I understand most of my own code. But someone else's? (e.g. any open source project) And I find it quite hard to contribute.

It's a true tragedy that mozilla's shumway was never finished, so Adobe Flash will soon be lost to the world.

lowkey how do I promote new blog posts that I write

like posting to reddit every single time seems like a bad idea

Discord is valued at 1.65 _billion_ dollars.

What kind of person can look at that and go "ah, yes, this free chat service is totally not gonna screw us out of private data for profit"?

Remember kids only because you woke up one day and wrote script that is basically just a glorified download manager that doesn't mean you're knowledgeable in any way to tell someone who codes basically almost full-stack real apps how and why something should be implemented.

Google proposes changes to Chromium which would disable uBlock Origin. Meanwhile Firefox doesn't screw their users.

wonder how long it'll be until software is literally so complex as to be not understandable

Well, maybe. But they are by far not the only large corporation vacuuming up user data for all kinds of use & access by third parties. #selfhosting #decentralization & #federation are the solutions we advocate for! Keep your data under control.
