Very inspired by this "Take back your web" talk, about the building blocks of the

@fmartingr recently saw this video where the author explains how simply choosing certain skills you can break the whole progression very early in the game:

@fmartingr if I didn't have the Switch already... it is very tempting 😁

@fmartingr ooooh... it looks amazing! Which model is it? how long does the battery last?

@fmartingr I'm really tempted, but the release on switch is yet TBD, so I'll have to wait a little more...

@fmartingr just finished the main course as well, I'm not a completionist so I'm fine not going through the B-side (but I'll try nonetheless 😬). As for Katana Zero, it is*very good*. I was surpirsed by how much it focused on the story (for good). If anything it is a little short, I want more! And the OST... if you like synthwave, it is a must!

Finished Katana Zero and Celeste this last week. Beautiful pixelart 2D games are my weakness

Spending a lot of time with lately, couldn't be enjoying it more 😄

I was finishing a pull request when suddently I focused on the last notes of the ongoing song and I thought: "I'd love to listen to some Lifeformed right now...". Seconds later, bam, Cider Time.

I love when randomness hits the spot 😄

The best, deepest, dialogues they ever had on Star Trek: Voyager.

Janeway: Let me ask you something. If you were something other than a human being, if you were a different kind of animal... If you were a small bird, a sparrow - what would your world be like?

da Vinci: I should make my home in a tree, in the branch of an elm. I should hunt insects for food, straw for my nest, and in the springtime, I should sing for a companion.

Janeway: And you would know nothing of the politics of Florence - the cutting of marble or mathematics.

da Vinci: Of course not.

Janeway: But why not?

da Vinci: My mind would be too small.

Janeway: As a sparrow, your mind would be too small, even with the best of teachers?

da Vinci: If Aristotle himself were to perch on my branch and lecture till he... fell off from exhaustion - still the limits of my mind would prevent me from understanding.

Janeway: And as a man, can you accept that there may be certain realities beyond the limits of your comprehension?

da Vinci: If I could not accept that... then I would be a fool.

Trying to get used to get up at 5:30 in the morning

@ekaitz_zarraga didn't know about those options in `lein-ring`, sounds a lot simpler to use! 😄

@ekaitz_zarraga in my experience the answer is to use `mount` to manage the reloads and lifecycle. It's been a while since the last time I did something with it, but maybe you can take inspiration from here github.com/baoqu/baoqu-core (bear in mind that the deps are a bit outdated, so the API might have changed since then)

I was wrong about Google and Facebook: there’s nothing wrong with them (so say we all)

It’s always difficult admitting you’re wrong. But sometimes you have to in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary. So, today, I admit that I was wrong about Google, Facebook, & surveillance capitalism in general being toxic for our human rights and democracy … it simply cannot be true given how they are endorsed by some of the most well-respected organisations in the world.
