@Anke i thought these were random passphrase ideas…

Bragging about kids, + 

I once told my daughter (almost 7) that i think platypuses are awesome.; since then she’s completely sure that platypus is my favourite animal and she draws a lot of them for me. I have two platypuses holding a birthday cake, a platypus under a rainbow, a platypus just hanging around the riverside, and so on. She’s awesome.

Please check out my new novel NON-PLAYER CHARACTER, now on Kickstarter!

I finally made myself write an Ansible playbook to install all the software i use. It’s on my TODO list for almost 4 years now…

Oh how i can relate! Happens to me all the time… me being a funny dad full of dad jokes doesnʼt help the kids falling asleep… 😁

Rant, FSF, money, - 

You can sign up for a (paid) associate membership on the @fsf page within a few minutes by clicking here-and-there, but you canʼt cancel it without emailing their support (which they donʼt answer for two days and counting)… And they call Windows a malware…

Thereʼs also a raven couple who live in the nearby hill. They fly above our place exactly at 7:30 and 13:30 (give or take a few minutes).

We have a magpie in our garden that speaks crow all the time.

#gitea was hosted on Github, but had a clear plan on what milestones had to be passed for them to start self-hosting. Now they're migrating to gitea.com/gitea/gitea . Gitea is a productive environment in which to host your project. With @codeberg you even get #codeberg Pages.

Github was proprietary from the beginning, but after Microsoft's acquisition it has moved deeper into the Extend phase with Github CLI. They're aiming for the entire open source infrastructure to orbit around them. Don't help them move the free software and open source world in this direction. You don't actually need Github. They need you.

If you usually donʼt drink brown bear, i recommend La Trappeʼ Quadrupel. Itʼs pretty strong (around 10 V/V% alcohol), has almost no foam, and a bit sweeter that itʼs bitter. Itʼs my favourite to date.

I released a new game today! Bonesweeper is a prototype of a small puzzle game inspired by Minesweeper. Excavate some fossils, build some skeletons! cheeseness.itch.io/bonesweeper #fossilfriday #screenshotsaturday #gamedev #indiedev

A huge number of doctors resigned in Hungary after the govt. cut a big percentage of their salaries, because thatʼs a completely logical move to make during a pandemic…
Now everyone is talking about this, obviously. Based on what this govt. did in the past, i *think* they are doing some really Ugly Thing in the background, covering it with this scandal. Then, in about a week or two, they will revert this decision and apologise. And no one will question them about the actual Ugly Thing.

A lonely but friendly house in the middle of nowhere, preferably a forest. Close, but not too close to a waterfall about 6 meters tall. Anyone is welcome to visit, but i prefer to live only with my family.

Disclaimer, my instance is a single user one and it probably wonʼt change in the nea future; but if it will, only family members can get an account.

@penguin42
Is “i add them up in my head” a valid option? For a certain upper limit, obviously.

I love how my Microsoft SwiftKey suggests the word queer when i write a single letter Q, even though i donʼt often use that word

Tech rant, Windows, bloatware 

Iʼm downloading the Radeon drivers on a Windows machine. It already consumed more than 1GB and itʼs only 30% through. A single device driver. Plus all the bloat AMD forces down my throat if i want to play a game on Windows.
