I realised I didn't do an #introduction after moving here.
I'm an almost 33 year old South Asian who writes code for a living.
I enjoy pro-wrestling, heavy metal, cooking, reading, making puns, making acquaintances all around the world etc.
I don't trust governments, irrespective of whether I voted them in or not.
"Microsoft: we were wrong about open source"
I hope it's just too late, everyone has the right to be wrong, of course, everyone except microsoft.
They don't deserve that, they were, and are still, fucking the Free Software world in the ass by having all commercial laptops/computers installing windows by default, their fucking logo on every keyboard...
Enough, they don't deserve shit, i'm sorry.
"How to de-Google-ify your website"
My latest post is now live on Dev.to for site owners and web developers who'd like to explore more independent alternatives to Google's products.
hey if you or anyone you know is looking for an experienced, self-taught Go or Python developer with a background in Physics or security, I'm your gal!
my professional experience is a little limited, but only due to not being given the chance. i am a very fast learner with a wide array of knowledge already, willing to learn anything to fit into any role
my most recent projects include writing a gopher (yes, that pre-HTTP protocol) server, my own fixed-size LRU hashmap implementation from scratch, and the beginnings of an IRC server. all in Go
boosts are very much appreciated ❤️
For once am not happy about Mastodon being on the HN frontpage. Someone submitted a work-in-progress pull request there. Half the comments are circlejerking about free speech as always, the other half gives opinions without understanding the context of the feature (which is not surprising given that it's a work-in-progress pull request on GitHub and not a goddamn press release).
This series of articles is proving to be quite fantastic. Theories about Roshar, summarizing what we know etc.
Now to find myself some time in front of a computer to do all this. Might be a few months before I can do so lol.
Maybe hosting a wallabag instance and hooking it up with a script that queries the API and generates an epub to send to the kindle email id may be the answer.
@viv Oh man that sounds very familiar but I can't for the life of me remember the name. I think back before Amazon bollocksed it all up, back in the Google Reader and .epub days, someone - I think Sony? - did a kind of RSS-to-periodic-epub thing like you describe.
I toot food, life, music, books etc.
I also make jokes no one understands.
Just a general instance with a catchy name.
