Pinned toot

I'm a hacker from Bosnia & Herzegovina, currently a Mozilla Open Fellow hosted by @bitsoffreedom@twitter.com.

I like to build cool stuff, regardless if it's software, articles ( r3bl.blog ), or music ( r3bl.dj ).

You can find out more about me by visiting r3bl.me

I used to be @r3bl before I've decided that it would be better for me to host my own single-user instance.

Glad you asked!
1. Pages load twice as fast
2. Laptop battery lasts longer
3. My privacy isn't invaded by 50 different douchebro Silicon Valley companies
4. Your fucking site doesn't slow down my computer to a crawl and I can actually read your fucking articles

The AR-15 was named after Ayn Rand and the maximum age at which it's okay to think she should be taken seriously

an appeal to the fediverse regarding anti-abuse 

Unsubscribe from a couple of those newsletters you never read.

remember not to access ANYTHING of Amazon's the next two days.
This means:
no Twitch
no IDBM
no audible
no comixology
no kindle
no amazon music
no amazon prime tv
no whole foods
none of the amazon stores

If you have Amazon Prime, cancel it, just resub afterwards if you want, don't even go for it if you're offered a free month. Unplug Alexa if you have her for any reason, don't impulse buy anything.

Support the workers, don't be a scab.

Someone didn’t like that the Mast app for iOS blocks Gab. The dev’s response is 🔥🔥🔥.

First the Internet gave us access to everything. Then it gave everything access to us.

Dear American software firms: just because your country uses shitty Imperial measurement does not mean this should be the default.

The rest of the world uses the metric system, thank you very much.

It's 2019 and the day when I will hear Martin Garrix - Animals for the very last time in my life is still somewhere in the future.

I finished up how I want the Social app to look on the most important views. Now I have an idea of how CWs should look, profiles, and I changed up the main view.

Still in awe at how apple saw that safari’s icon couldn’t fit with their new design philosophy and went “eh, fuck it we’ll just add a white border 🤷‍♀️”
I strive to one day not give a fuck about stuff that hard.

This is bizarre but true: in older (and by that I mean largely pre-1900) English printed alphabets, the character & was printed at the end, and was memorized as a 27th character.

It was recited in the alphabet as "per se and", meaning "'and' by itself". So the end of the alphabet went "X, Y, Z, and per se and."

The phrase "and per se and" eventually got contracted - and is how we got today's name for the symbol: ampersand.

If you read and enjoy my travel posts through my website or Mastodon* and you are planning to travel to somewhere I've been and you can't afford an actual travel agent and you find travel planning too stressful or time consuming to fit into your life, I would be delighted to share advice.

My specialties are land and sea (not air) transit, especially long distance European buses, and finding vegan food. I'm happy to also help with general stuff to do, and even more in-depth help with planning and realistic budgeting if you want because I actually love wasting away hours and days researching travel stuff.

If you are ever having a bad time remembering being bullied, imagine i'm there too - bunny ears, ok rack, and all - just kicking the tar out of them. Absolutely ragdolling those motherfuckers around. Might make you feel better

Hey, U.S. folks, there's a nation-wide peaceful vigil to protest inhumane conditions at detention centers. If you have the time, it's July 12 from 8-9 PDT.
