Not to forget the good news today: the SpaceX Crewed Dragon docked with the International Space Station moments ago

Sometime ago I saw a linux distro on birdsite that was focused on usability and also cost something.

Anybody know by any chance what the name of this distro is? I can't seem to find it anymore.

Today I found out that this wait time only exists when if you leave the service manager window open.

What a well designed OS.

Just got another email from a blind user of SourceHut thanking me for caring about accessibility in my work. And honestly, it wasn't difficult. I don't understand why my peers in web development seemingly couldn't give a rat's ass about accessibility. Maybe because at their level of complexity, to them "accessibility" means "a shitload of aira tags and a ton of work", whereas at my level of complexity it means "just keep it simple and don't do anything particularly stupid"

Actually I think it's more than 10 minutes. Probably more like 15-20 minutes.

The service system of windows is especially bad.
Oh you want to make a service out of your program? Please integrate two extra classes into your code so our stupid service manager can start your program. Oh you want to reinstall the service. You can't just reinstall it, no no, please first uninstall it then wait about 10 minutes until it's actually removed, until you can install it again.

I mean service scripts are bad but this is another level.

I can't express in words how much I hate windows. The day can't come soon enough when I won't have to work anymore with this pile of shit .

Migrated all my zones to from coredns to knot. Knot just makes it so much easier to use dnssec.

Create software that does not require Docker to have maintainable deployments, prefer software that does not require Docker to have maintainable deployments, keep software with a shitshow of dependencies in containers created using mechanisms that are much more simple than Docker (lxd, nspawn, just chroot jail afer all).

🎂 #HappyFedi2U as the fediverse turns twelve. Really interesting to think that it started with identi.ca and that it keeps evolving in various forms, not unlike one of those gross slime moulds.

Keep up the great work everyone, and please keep it caring and non-corporate. 💚✊🏽

PSA - Dear new users at mastodon.social 

Imagine for a moment that your sight began to look blurry. You can't see things clearly and you need to go out to buy groceries or something.

You start walking and stumble into people. You get cursed at for not looking where you're going.

"Hey! Can't you see the sign? Can't you read? "

You stumble upon a crowd. "What's going on?"

"Can't you see?" you're asked rudely.

And nobody tells you what's actually going on.

They all expect you to see.

Well, that's what it feels like when reading Mastodon and there are no captions in your images.

Mastodon has an image captioning feature. If you can use it, please do for those of us who can't. 😎
