I found github.com/imsnif/...
pretty nice too (:
Nothing much, more of the same tbh. Some work, some classes...How about you?
Had some really good days off last week and I'm back at work this week. I feel like sleeping instead though. Otherwise, same old.
talking about time, I just realized in a recent post that subreply printed "130 ms ago" for a comment. That's so cool, here we "trim" things differently
I sometimes see strings like "in 52 seconds" as well. Whoops. But I think it wasn't here on Subreply.
LinkedIn initially rejected two bug reports from me. The first was fixed. For the second one they just deleted a post I couldn't access when logged in. Now I want to build an alternative. Every account can have a resume, post jobs, share stuff with mentions and private messages.
An ActivityPub federated alternatives ?
As I am unfortunately realizing, yes. It's why I'm trying to pivot into nonprofit or research-adjacent. I feel much better doing things for humanity than I feel lining a CEO's pocket with more cash.
Totally agree with you. I'm lucky enough to work for a non-profit at the moment. But it is as an external consultant, so my actual employer is profit oriented.
Has anyone played Tibia? It's an old-school MMORPG I've heard about for a while and today I tried it. It's loads of fun, but feels a little grindy.
I barely have time to play social games :(
tl;dr: everything is CRUD and you're a cog in the corporation machine that generates more money than your salary costs.
Which is pretty much the truth gut every employment, isn't it?
I'm glad! Today was nice and sunny. I hope it stays like this in the coming weeks.
Yes I hope for the same. But I bet it's going to be changing forth and back all year.
I have been thinking about the pains of relationship break-ups and their possible causes. What's the evolutionary path to responses like these? I theorize that the reason lies on our social nature, more specifically on our deep dependence on strong community ti in order to survive. In an atomized world like ours, where we belong to no other tribe than our immediate family, breakups easily trigger the fear if death response of being outcasted from the tribe. What do you think?
Sounds reasonable. There's also a power question that we didn't overcome yet.
Unfortunately out of experience.
Hello ! I come back from some holidays and now I'm wondering if it would be worth it to learn vi/vim keybindings (maybe change my IDE when possible with some vim/neovim, install keybinding in other editors) ? If yes, what method would you recommend to me to learn them ?
I used vim for over a decade and also neovim for a bit when it cam out but ended up with Kakoune. I absolutely recommend you vim if you feel like you will need the support of a strong community and lots of ready made extensions. Otherwise I'd suggest you to check out Kakoune.
now i want to have a cat as well! Are you still using twtxt by the way? I still haven't gotten to the point where I'm hosting my file.
I do! Maybe just use an existing service? There's for example twtxt.net that looks decent. I'm actually writing my own because why not but that'll take a bit before it's usable.
I realize it's been a few days since I last came here. Hope everyone is doing great. :)
I'm doing good. But I have a problem. I need to leave but the cat on my lap is sleep-purring.
Sorry, I just need to vent: What's frustrating is that I finally get motivation and energy to work on personal projects on my last day off before heading back to work. Once the work week begins I'll have absolutely no energy to do anything outside of work and daily chores. And it'll be weeks or months before I have the same motivation again.Sometimes two days off is not enough.
I so feel you. And even if I find the energy and time to do something on a weekday, it would be so late that I should stop after an hour again because I need to get up the next day.
