broke: a programming culture of everyone teaching themselves how to do everything and competing in a race to the bottom, creating fragmented and broken development processes

woke: a trade union that trains new people, sets industry wide labor and compensation standards, and builds standardized shared development tools and processes

What is your operating system?

Just received an old HP "thin client" computer from an uncle, with maybe one more on the way. The specs are here: support.hp.com/us-en/document/

They're sort of bad, so no heavy applications/self hosting (probably?), but what sort of other things could I do with it?

If you ever feel bad that you made a mistake, take comfort knowing you aren't Netflix.

Blog post on everything Tusky and rickrolling, a one-stop-shop of all of my rebuttals against the common arguments I've seen over the past week or so.

A smarthome concept that wasn't absolute hell: the mid-80s Soviet SPHINX project, based on the idea that there would be a central, modular PC and appliances in the house like the TV would connect to it via the LAN. Everything was designed to be easily-expandable or pared-down as needed. It was purely conceptual but the props looked cool as hell.

Anytime have haircut suggestions? I've been growing it all out, and want to trim it into an actual style, but no idea what to pick/what to ask for.

I'd like to keep it long, and maybe androgynous? IDK.

Replacing npm (the tool and the organisation) with a federated alternative by npm inc's former CTO! theregister.co.uk/2019/06/04/n

(I had no idea that so many registries were sprouting!)

In case you missed it, there's a free open Fediverse alternative to Reddit under construction called Prismo:

@prismo

You can try the first instance at:

prismo.xyz

prismo.xyz/auth/sign_up

The idea is that each instance is the equivalent of a subreddit, dedicated to a particular topic.

Prismo federates with ActivityPub so you can follow Prismo accounts from Mastodon etc. (The federation isn't completed yet though, so some features are missing.)

#literature, #philosophy, #linux, #opensource, #tech, etc and whatnot :D

boosting appreciated :)

why the heck is it impossible to run multiple instances of mobile apps, or even the equivalent of multiple windows or tabs?

aside from browsers, virtually nothing supports multiple independent views with different content or accounts open at the same time (if not necessarily *on screen* at the same time; we're still talking about phones here)

this is hell for shopping and comms apps especially

how did we as a species allow this regression, and how come so few apps try to overcome it? 🤨
