me on twitter: ugh my TL is hot garbage, I need to unfollow like 200 people

me on the fediverse: followed. followed. followed. youre all followed. all of you are beautiful souls and I want to see all ur posts

No, Warner Bros is absolutely not buying bulk Google Play comments, not at all.

I wanted to compare the writing speed of multiple devices I own, so I did.

Bluetooth is the worst. I can't think of another technology that's as widely adopted as it is completely dysfunctional. Five freaking generations later, I still can't have Bluetooth turned on on both my laptop and my phone at the same time, or it all goes to shit.

@DavidDarnes I have a very niche quirk and I could use an input in: I can't think of an elegant way to store data over time in the data files.

I'm thinking of something like styling my data files as:
entity -> date -> variables

I have a couple of hundred of entities and a dozen of variables on a daily basis, so nothing too pretentious. I'm still wondering whether or not I'm dangerously close to the point in which I may be better off with an API.

Home Assistant is the best open source project idea of this decade. It provides a solution to two niches:

* It connects smart home components that otherwise can't be connected.
* It offers you to connect over 1000 components by simply configuring a few variables.

It runs on low power devices (such as Raspberry Pi), its core and its components are all created using people's favorite scripting language (Python), and it is constantly being improved by a thriving open source community.

One out of three newly elected presidents of Bosnia & Herzegovina is on the US sanctions list since January 2017: sanctionssearch.ofac.treas.gov

He won 53.79% of the votes, while his main opponent won 43.01% of the votes.

Judging from my experience, Macbooks have approximately 90% of the laptop stock photos market.

I've started putting together a list of #fediverse apps, focused on implementations of #ActivityPub, documenting their status and what tech stack they're (being) built with: ethercalc.org/fediverse-stacks

This is a publicly editable doc, so would appreciate corrections/additions, and feedback especially from fediverse devs, but also from instance admins and users:

- What app/implementation/stack did you try?
- Pros/cons you encountered
- What stack & libraries would you choose if starting today?

Android Pie (v9) looks fucking beautiful, and feels beautiful. We'll see how it'll behave.

You know the thing about this stupid EU stupid proposals day has been that it drew valuable attention away from my favourite EFF headline ever eff.org/deeplinks/2018/09/yes-

TIL @Deezer@twitter.com offers a plan for lossless streaming. Bye bye @Spotify@twitter.com, you won't be missed at all.
