i'll plan to move static files to an S3-like provider.

Gentoo Linux tells AI-generated code contributions to fork off

A good PR move opines community member AI-generated and assisted code contributions are no longer allowed in the Gentoo Linux distribution.…
#theregister #IT

of course this is an interpretation of my personal experience, YMMV.

a depressive episode is like being a clogged pipe.

nothing goes out, nothing goes in.

you don't want to talk, go out, or do anything. and you have no motivation to either read, eat, etc.

this forms a backlog between the clogged parts, which could suddenly break the pipe.

when the clog is fixed (even temporarily), you feel everything flowing nicely again. you want to talk to your friends, reading brings you joy, and ideas start flowing. productivity comes back.

why banks don’t show available balance in their transaction notifications? 🤔

i've found that the only battle-tested offline-first database solution is pouchdb.

Lots of content vanishing from the internet. I might have to continue with my homelab project after all.

Lots of great newsletter content lately. I’ve been reading more of those lately.

Maybe for the limited ads you see there and the concise amount of content authors put in there.

Since there’s not a lot of SEO influence in that medium (even tho most have a public website version of them) the element of surprise (what might come next) helps to enjoy content you are not actively looking for.

this is what i meant about 80% planning 20% implementation

Shots fired by the flake8 maintainer.

We can have a nuanced discussion about the failures of flake8 etc, but you’ll still have to acknowledge that a VC-backed, non-Python project profited from decades of community work, & has sucked all air out of the space.

It’s not like I’m not using Ruff—but I do it begrudgingly & find the cheerleading around it baffling. It has practically destroyed a part of the ecosystem & it looks like nobody has seen the VC playbook play out.


There are many out there but only a few have had so many love, tears and care put into the work.

Or that’s what I think at least 🤔

Very close to finally release a usable version of a piece of software I’ve been working on for four years.

Nothing fancy, a CRUD app that outputs a preconfigured workflow for double entry accounting so you can manage your budget.

A budgeting app.

today was stressful but productive

Any newsletter provider that doesn't add a thousand trackers to the emails and signup forms?

the big downside of using passwordless login is that you depend on the service that delivers the email to login.

right now i can't login to linear because i can't get the login code.

when i retry, i get the past invalid code instead of the new one.

i'm stuck and unable to see my issues.

Yesterday my son and I asked ChatGPT how many quesadillas would it take to make the earth explode.
