prefacing the name of every object I own with "tactical"

like I'm glad it's FINALLY coming in v12, but holy crap has it been a long wait, and I have to wait even longer until it hits LTS.

ya'll need to learn javascript so I can complain to you how it's crazy we don't have `import` and `export default` in node.

Having only ever programmed neural nets from scratch in school. I'm finding tensorflow both a luxury of convenience and a ton of ceremonial boilerplate. It's a weird feeling.

I have improved my masonry. That was not satisfying.

When you google a programming issue and find your own StackOverflow answer

I think #mastodon growing so quickly may have held back the #fediverse. It's considered a de facto reference implementation for #activitypub, but it's a limited implementation. It doesn't support most Actor and Object types, it's client and server are tightly coupled, and it was designed specifically for microblogging. ActivityPub was an afterthought for it and it doesn't use it anywhere near its full potential.

Now every new AP project is following suit, developing a client/sever combination specifically to handle a single Object type, any enabling federation support on a project by project basis. We need a full AP server that's not tied to a specific client. It should support AP C2S API so a user can login to any client using oauth and handle different types. A user could use one client to create events, one to manage photos, and another to write notes or articles, and they'd all be tied to the same account.

Hopefully, people will get past thinking of Mastodon, Pleroma, PixelFed, etc and just think of the ActivityPub network. I don't think the fediverse will continue to grow without this change in philosophy.

Life's too short. Don't use a screen protector on your cellular device. Enjoy that AMOLED in all of its naked glory.

Devs, listen to what people are telling you. They are telling you what you need.

Yes, some of them are annoying, complainy and aggravating, but your brilliant idea is useless if people don't use it.

There are so many conversations about social media alternatives at the moment and there is a real opportunity to gain a completely new audience.

But you gotta listen. You gotta engage with folks. Coding is the easy part.

Will you start boiling so I can go sit in a comfy chair instead of monitoring you, you stupid pot.
