“Being somewhat of an old-school programmer who started by writing BASIC on a C64 in the 80s, modern web software seems like a towering garbage heap of ill-conceived abstractions, layered on top of another until no one even remembers code needs to run on actual hardware.” @jk https://gmi.skyjake.fi/gemlog/2020-11_an-origin-story.gmi
Today I got some bad news. The disease which has already taken my right-side hearing is progressing much faster than expected. Our expectation was for a similar hearing loss on the left side in a 10-15 year time frame. We now expect the left-side hearing to be gone in at most 12 months.
I'm still in shock. So is my family.
We've taken a few days off to process this.
I'm making a playlist with all the music I must hear in the next months.
Please add your suggestions here (https://annuel2.framapad.org/p/musical-bucket-list-9k5v) and share this around.
This sounds interesting, I'm going to check them out:
Enjoy live streaming?
Check out Owncast, a neat self-hosted live streaming server!
Opensource, written in #golang, easy to install & setup!
It's still fairly young, but looks super promising and already works amazingly well 😍
I have to praise the quality of customer support by @ungleich
Definitely recommended! These people know what they are doing :)
Anyway, as far as I know this is the first time the fediverse has had an open, managed group server.
QOTO also has the group directory. Attached is what the group directory, and a group timeline looks like on QOTO, but we did some streamlining, your client may render groups differently and most wont have the directory, which is a federated list of active groups.
Anyway, anyone who wants a group, go sign up for one! Its open now!
I knew they are doing this with online competitors, but apparently there is a strategy to go after street shops too.

I disagree with some of the details presented (mostly about idealizing past inventors), but this is a very good read:
@kensanata Just read your post on Swiss Exceptionalism. +1
Being a migrant in CH it's interesting to see the confusion in some acquaintance's faces when the pedestal they were standing on when criticizing my country of origin is now shown to be false preconceptions.

We federate with all servers: we don't block any servers.
