Breaking: @ManfredWeber and the @EPPGroup want the vote on #Article13 and the Copyright Directive moved ahead to next week to pre-empt the #SaveYourInternet/#StopACTA2 protests! We need a public outcry to stop this!

@jeffalyanak @alcinnz People donโ€™t want iOS, macOS, or Windows. People want to share their photos with their friends, chat to their loved ones, maybe write up a paper or play a game. No one ever wakes up saying โ€œI want that operating system.โ€

Things that are hard about building an SPA:

- Managing the back button yourself
- Managing scroll state yourself
- Managing focus state yourself

A lot of the nuts-and-bolts stuff that the browser is supposed to do automatically now becomes your responsibility. I think a lot of people underestimate this when building an SPA.

Here's my new portable computer. The case was finally printed successfully so I was able to make sure all the electronics actually fit. The cables need a lot of wrangling so I might look for some shorter ones. The list of components is on my blog:

This was a fun custom deck to make. I'm happy to have a sturdy little computer with a mechanical keyboard that I can take with me.

I've been watching kids TV for the last hour and they're not even here.

I forgot more things:

- Messaging (Signal, Threema, Keybase, Wire)
- Git (Gitlab, Keybase)

We use Rocketchat and Discourse at Elephant Branded.

I run Solus on an X220 and don't hit any issues on a day to day basis.

It's easier now than its ever been to move away from data leaches like Google, Facebook, Microsoft.

Although there are drawbacks to snaps. Whenever I create a new doc with Nextcloud/Collabora it's in German, and with a snap there doesn't seem to be a way to change this ๐Ÿ˜
