I'm still consuming some reddit content via RSS, but they are intentionally breaking the RSS feeds to make users either access the site or use their app. Time to migrate.

Any suggestions of RSS-friendly news/articles/link aggregators like reddit?

TIL: Babies born today will turn 18 on January 19, 2038, the first date when time becomes unrepresentable using a standard 32-bit unsigned Unix timestamp. It's not far off.

I was using FeedWrangler, but this recent outage got me thinking about self-hosting again.

Anyone with experience self-hosting Miniflux?

"People must be trained to desire, to want new things, even before the old have been entirely consumed. [...] Man's desires must overshadow his needs."

It's embarrassing, frustrating and angering to realize how many times I fell for this.

I can't recall exactly who recommended this documentary in my feed, but I just started watching it and wow, it's amazing:

"The Century of the Self"

Anyone around Cambridge, MA up for some coffee?

Finally moved all my repositories to sourcehut.org and configured CI properly.

In Cambridge, MA. The latency on the hotel wifi to SDF is higher than at home (Switzerland).

Apparently people intentionally ignore assembly instructions to anchor furniture onto their walls and then sue the manufacturer when said furniture tips over.

Today is #InternationalDayofDisabilities and I'd like to show off my hearing aids once again.

Without them I'm a poorly concentrated, tired and grumpy person. With them I can talk and work for hours, I can listen and be in noisy environments without getting exhausted.

Hearing loss is an invisible disability. You can't tell that I'm hearing impaired from looking at me, because my hearing aids are often hidden by my hair or simply hard to spot behind my ears. That also makes it harder to have my needs met. Even with hearing aids I need that people look at me and speak clearly when they're talking to me.

I often feel like I'm an imposter when I call myself disabled, but the alternative is to pretend I have a normal hearing and stop functioning in everyday life. I'm beyond happy and grateful that I live in a country where I get hearing aids for free and where I have rights both as a disabled student and in the workplace.

And here are my tiny, wonderful hearing aids 💞

The soundtrack for the Annihilation movie is amazing.

Just found out I can send a letter requesting all of my information from police authorities (local and regional). About to send one.

cosmic.voyage just celebrated it's first year in operation. In 365 days we had 283 user-submitted logs to the QEC Relay 001. Amazing job everyone!

I'm putting together the year one anthology now and I'm just giddy. I'm rereading everything as I go and there's some truly great stuff here.

If you haven't been reading now is a great chance to jump in.
