@mheiber, @effye and myself have just sent the news about this instance to the whole company. So, expect a lot of newcomers.

And to all , welcome .


Joined the online conference today. There was a small introduction time between the attendees, in breakout rooms.

I ended in a room with Paul Syverson, the inventor of onion routing, that is used in Tor.

I’m so happy I could thank him for having invented this and helping the creation of .

(IDE) is shutting down. There could be a lot to say about it. But that was the I was using across home computer and work computer. It allowed me to easily share settings and addons. And I did not have to relearn shortcuts when changing machine.

But now that it is being sunsetted, I’m looking for an open source multi-platform alternative. Any suggestions?

FYI, I’m not interested in VSCode.

So I finally killed my Goodreads account because I'm trying to limit my Amazon usage to as little as possible and switched to Storygraph a Black woman-owned book tracking platform that uses machine learning for making suggestions, which are disturbingly accurate.

It's time for the tech industry to end the malicious distraction that Proof-of-Work cryptocurrencies are, and focus on solving important problems instead.

Started reading "Release It!" by Michael Nygard.

It's a rare software engineering book in the horror genre.

I marked a Gmail thread as "unread" to remember to look at it again next Monday.

It's always sad to see a chef, in a fancy event, completely fail to deliver a decent vegetarian meal to a minority of the attendees.

No, an unseasoned salad with a few green leaves and some roasted veggies as a main dish is not a proper fancy vegetarian dinner. Definitely not on par with what the majority of the attendees were getting.

Chefs like this just don't like food.
