Hosting all my stuff on Raspberry Pi's: cool toys to play with and also not needing to pay for hosting anymore, or wasted money and time? :thinkingrem:

Just got done making an app for a job application, thank eris. Writing code for others is really stressful :ohgno:

you don't need AMP or anything like that if you don't fall into a hole of overcomplication and client-side logic in the first place ๐Ÿค”

Making a web server in Rust was surprisingly smooth. I used tiny_http for handling requests and diesel for the database, and the code was pretty clean. Adding r2d2 into the mix seemed like it would get messy in some places, but all in all, I was pleasantly surprised.

I got a new laptop bag and I love having functional a zipper. The old one has been annoying me for years now, and it finally broke down completely.

Note to self: if you have the means, buy quality products when buying products you use every day.

one of the more famous criticality incidents of this type is naughty dog, who were trying to make crash bandicoot or something but ended up, thats right, making a lisp

if you get enough smart programmers together all they do is make lisp, so you have to make sure theres some less-smart "control rod" programmers in the team

Having not searched for a job, ever, I've suddenly been forwarded two openings.



I thought the last year has been my least active development-wise so far. Turns out, I've never been so active. Why? Because part of my job is programming, and I never realized that does indeed fill out my GitHub contributions :happyfelix:

I started making a boat game today. Sailing just somehow became very cool to me suddenly.

I think I'll just stick to making games, making software that works with other software is too painful. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

I find the emacs vs vim thing really weird, as it's such a great divide that has peristed for so long. Have any enlightening articles about vim? I really don't know how it works or why it's comparable to emacs, but I'm kinda interested.

I think I'll have a go at making an ActivityPub client. Maybe that'll finally sate my desire to rewrite everything in Rust.

The reason being that I can start a blog, because nobody has done this before.

Thinking about making a blog management tool that generates the html and the RSS feed :thunking:
