Pinned toot

Everyone, @ me or @judeswae if you have any questions, I'm happy to help where I can

There are a great many people with blood on their hands that will be feigning ignorance and innocence today.

It's 2019. I'm using 4 separate chat systems for work, and 2 separate systems for my private life.

Now that Firefox Send is out of Test Pilot, there's this convenient little CLI to upload your files quickly.

github.com/timvisee/ffsend

There are more advanced options but using the web interface is more convenient for those.

In the future your web apps won’t break or leak secrets because you forgot to update your dependencies, the browser will take care of that by itself: developers.google.com/web/upda 🤦‍♂️

Well, I guess that is one valid hostname I could choose for my server, Scaleway. Thank you for the suggestion.
