Why do I do this to myself? :blobcatfacepalm:

VNDB things I'd build if bandwidth and storage were free:
- A video hosting platform for trailers/promotional videos.
- A file exchange platform for patches, save games, trials and freeware games.

(And I'm an unreliable programmer, but nevermind that)

And nobody told me that all Wikipedia links on VNDB were broken for a day or two.

Users are unreliable testers. :blobshrug:

Even school kids have electric bicycles around here. :blobfoxsurprised:

The static binaries for were broken for 3 months before anyone told me. :blobrage:

's dynamic type system is definitely a weak point. Types are implied by operators rather than by values. Except when they aren't, and you end up writing hacks like this.

Average acceptance time for patches I contribute to other projects is somewhere around 2 or 3 years.

Guess I have a thing for barely maintained software. :blobcatneutral:

Aaaargh I can't stand not knowing what's going on 

"This week's hardware vulnerabilities"

Let's hope this trend doesn't last. :blobcatnervous:

Never mind, it doubled again. How do I even find out what's causing this? :blobunsure:

I have lots of free time and rarely plan anything.

But when I do have something planned, there's always someone with another event on the exact same date and time. :blobshrug:

Instance selection checklist:
- Mastodon v3.0.1 (i.e. actively maintained and updated)
- Fully self-hosted (less cloud=good)
- Blobcats :blobcatuwu:
- Increased character limit
- Must allow (CW'd) anime porn
- Techy weeb, weeby tech, or no community at all
- Not much shitposting

The problem with Fediverse instances: Weeb instances tend to be low on dev/floss posts while the pure dev/floss instances tend to be weeb-hostile.

The best solution is something small, simple, open minded and run by likeminded peeps.

I might be on to something. Let's keep monitoring...

Today marks the launch of a new Dutch ISP, "Freedom Internet". Their "Why Freedom?" page is one of the best manifestos I've read in years.
(Dutch, but I suppose you can copy-paste into deepl.com/translator for a translation)

Users: Your website is slow and sometimes giving me errors!

Also users: *Runs download script that crawls 50 pages/second in parallel*

Something you generally don't test during development: Someone editing the database while a migration script is running.

I'll need to increase the isolation level of that transaction next time.

The joys of a full outer join with four tables.
