I used many mail/#IMAP providers over the years, from huge to tiny. First time I encounter problems, weird behaviour, and performance hiccups is with Amazon . (via ) – anybody else?

Have you played a video game in the past month?

Do you have 10-15 minutes to complete a survey? …about frustrations and satisfaction in games.

I know, critics are praising it everywhere, so here's my boring take: YES, Porridge Radio's "Every Bad" is f***ing fantastic! 🎶 Keep the world outside for a while, let the sun shine into your heart and listen to this great album!

Good, there is an "Intelligent drum & bass" playlist. Honestly, the first one I found annoyed me with mundane lyrics after 10 minutes. Let's see if this one is better.

Hey #Fediverse #FreeSoftware people, a friend made a great observation: due to #COVID this is a pretty good time to promote #FLOSS teleconferencing / remote work solutions.


Anybody any suggestions for a free software #teleconferencing solution that could handle 10-15 people simultaneously? I had mixed experiences with I also know there's @nextcloud Talk app which kinda works, but never got around to testing it more extensively.

Matrix/Riot is looking better every day. UX/UI is still quite messy, especially in the web/desktop app. RiotX on Android is in early stages, but pretty clean so far.

Don't pay for expensive PDF editing tools – use LibreOffice Draw! Since LibreOffice 6.4, it lets you consolidate (join) multiple text boxes into a single one, which is great if you've imported a PDF and the text content is split up into lots of chunks:

Dear #Fediverse #admins, here's a poll for you! Completely hypothetically, if #Facebook and #birdsite implemented #activitypub, would you be inclined to allow them to federate with your instance?

Yes, I appreciate that "it depends" and "it's complicated" (it really really is!). But please 🐻 with me, I'm just curious about your gut feeling about this. :blobcatcoffee:

I've just realized that #Rust has eliminated defensive coding for me.

Defensive coding is "I know it's not supposed to be `null`, but I'll check just in case" or "I know the caller isn't supposed to mutate or free this object, but I'll make a copy just in case" or "I know that function should be thread-safe, but I'll avoid threads just in case"

In Rust nullability, mutability and thread-safety are encoded in types, so I never have to second-guess them.
