I went for a walk in the woods today and it occurred to me that it should be possible to automatically create hiking routes from data (spiced up with data maybe). A short web search only turned up ctguides.com/walkwizard. Isn't this a thing or do I suck at search?

I just realized that the design of the shirt I am wearing today has similarities with . Looks all sharp from the surface, but once you look closer you only find the small miserable truth and it is all held together by nothing but a little bit of string.

I am thinking about switching to a more tech/coding/tinkering/geek oriented international mastodon instance. I considered mastodon.technology or mastodon.sdf.org, but I am unsure and unfortunately there is no way to lurk without creating an account. Does anybody have some good advise for me?

I just uploaded version 1.5.5 of my app EasyOpenLink to Google Play. The build will be available once the F-Droid build system feels like building it. The new version removes support for opening links in private mode in due to github.com/mozilla-mobile/feni 😕

New versions break sh*t loads of things, bugtracker is unusable. Mozilla releases update which breaks not only the UI/UX but also the way incognito tabs are opened via 3rd party applications. This suvks. Glad that I don't do professionally anymore.

I am currently reading "The Cruise of the Snark" by Jack London. In one chapter he talks about Ernest Darling who seems to have been quite a character and a kind of proto-hippie ahead of his time.

If you, your project or your team depends on an open source project, don’t hesitate to mail its creators and tell them that you do!

You have no idea how useful such endorsements are when maintainers want to justify their time commitments!

Joining "The Cult of Portable". Didn't expect the to have a decent punch, but with the right headphones it sounds pretty good.

can be such a pain! The dev documentation says I can set an icon for an activity or an intent-filter, but the share menu will show the app icon in Android 10+ and I have no clue if this is a bug or desired behaviour. 😡
