Hardly a new thing I know but I can’t help but find the ability to SSH into local computers, VPS’s, etc from your smartphone amazing. So fucking handy too. I could be out somewhere and my server could be playing up and I’d just pull up a terminal, give it a reboot, check logs and htop, etc.

Just set it up with one of my new Pi’s.

Calculator watches were the original smart watches.

controversial technology opinion 

I seem to be in the minority here but a web page should be able to load its content without needing JavaScript. If your page only loads an empty wireframe without JavaScript, you’ve failed at the web. Bare minimum, load the fucking content. If it’s being pulled dynamically, do that server side and then generate a damn page.

Back when I was in my early teens I found it relatively easy to find and fit into online communities. Nowadays I find it extremely difficult. Fosstodon is one of the only communities I have been able to get into for quite some time (and I'm very thankful for all of you). I am not sure if I changed, or the world around me changed, or both, but I feel so alone on the internet these days. Which hurts because the internet used to be the place I could find people to connect to when I was lonely irl.

I notice a *lot* of people suddenly signing up to and in the past couple months. Is 2021 the year of secure messaging? I hope so.

@Mastodon hello and thank you for making this amazing software! taking the internet back out of corporate giants, make it more like the days of small disconnected forums and IRC! P.S. curious how do you decide what gets put on the official selection of communities? joinmastodon.org/communities

Rewatching Mr.Robot TV series. How can I possibly be enjoying it even more the second time round! 😂 1st watch I really appreciated the tech realism. 2nd time round I'm more appreciating the deep phycological aspects. Highly recommended.

Back online! Sorry if you had to register again. The server is now set up 100% correctly (manually, by me, instead of trusting a script) and all should work hopefully better than before!
