The #Fediverse is so very amazing :fediverse:​❤️ That's why I run a whole bunch of different services, something for everyone!

The things I host are:
Matrix + Synapse
And much more!

I don't expect anything in return ofc❤️ :cat_hug_triangle:​ However if you would like to support me in paying the bills for all this, any help is very much appreciated :cat_hug_triangle:

Any suggestions on app for creating a large timeline visual? I want it to be pretty easy to add new events any time, and share it with others. Would prefer it to be self hosted, but also open to a native app I could export from as an image.

did you know that #mastodon web UI has OCR built in? so when you are posting screenshots of text, a transcription of the text to put into a description of the image is literally one click away. when uploading image into a toot, just klik 'Edit' and then 'detect text from picture'. that's it.

please help sighted people. it's costing you two extra clicks.


Happy Thanksgiving to those who are celebrating! I'm taking advantage of my federally prescribed day off, I can tell you that. 😄

Thanksgiving beans loaf in progress. dish for my first big holiday as a vegetarian.

Probably going to create an account over in that PeerTube instance in a few days since I've been looking to host videos somewhere.

I just discovered that @stux not only hosts a Mastodon instance, but also a while bunch of other stuff, including PeerTube. Also has this spiffy services page: Super cool!

Reminder to myself that htmx and Alpine.js look like really interesting options.

A few things I wish SSR frameworks did better: automated testing, and making components. I've never found templating systems satisfying and they're hard to use in multiple spots within an app. Automated testing was much less common when I was building old-school PHP server-side rendered apps, but it would be huge to have this improved.

These things could be better now too. I'm not sure. The more JS stuff I wade through though, the more I think it's time to go back.

Is it actually worth learning a new thing this time? Will somebody else just get bored and make a new option? Remix's big features are _server side rendering_ and _using browser features_. Probably good goals, but in other words, don't use JS? We've got tons of options for that too! At that point, make an F# app or Rust app that server-side renders and has better type safety and is more efficient.

I've been primarily working with front end UI JS and building user apps for close to 10 years now. I had a year or so break doing some backend C#, back at it for the past year. I get JS fatigue now.

Most recent example: Next.js is pretty good and has been going for a long time. Now Rexmix is announced. It provides a very similar abstraction except it encourages more backend rendering and has react-router. Alright...

Thanking sweet baby Jesus I wrote these e2e tests. Lots of work, but they always turn out to be very valuable.

Rehabilitated sea lion refuses to go without friend :Pooh_hearts:

OK it really is this bad

"He compared the recent promises to hit net-zero emissions targets between 2050 and 2070 to a bit of dark humor circulating the conference. It describes a 73-year-old man who is hailed for setting “an ambitious target” to quit drinking within the next 30 years."

You guys! Nintendo made a game with Fox from Smash Bros where you get to fly a spaceship! Falco is in it too!!

covid, food 

Went to a restaurant with a college friend (after we had relieved several record stores of some of their inventory). I don't think I'm quite ready to do that on a weekly basis. I enjoyed meals that had pacing again but I'm pretty sure it's impolite to ask folks if they would stop breathing so much.
