@v0tti can say almost the same thing about Internet. Literally, just replace "cryptocurrency" with the "internet": enriched the rich, waste of electricity, climate change, hundreds of scams, bla bla bla. Blockchain is very young and complicated technology, give it some time 😉

Switched to Dvorak layout yesterday. Typing speed decreased drastically, but I already feel how well thought out it is when typing in English.

RT @DuckDuckGo@twitter.com

After months of stalling, Google finally revealed how much personal data they collect in Chrome and the Google app. No wonder they wanted to hide it.

Spying on users has nothing to do with building a great web browser or search engine. We would know (our app is both in one).

@Preston @neauoire Let us not forget the majestic zeppelin train either, which was too intimidating, dangerous, and loud for passengers and eventually melted for the war effort. Still, supposedly held the highest speed record for 20 years.

@mrus take my condolences. And get ready for weirdly structured content of zips 😔

@mrus I did Photos takeout yesterday. Google puts metadata of each photo into separate json file. Thankfully there is a nice tool.

Remembering how much I did with knowledge I had makes me wonder if my current approach to development is really efficient.

Found this old photo made by 15 yo me. I was working on inventory for our online survival game while travelling to Riga. There was no uGUI back then, the UI was developed 100% with code. Since I wasn’t an experienced developer, I had inventory drawing and logic (both local and network!) all in one place with hardcoded number and string values. Moreover, I used Atom without IntelliSense and C# highlighting (but with nice material theme!).

Sugar is the low-income people’s cocaine.

@mario_afk This might be an obvious question, but how do you move borderless windows around? I know there are tiling windows managers that allow you to manipulate windows via keyboard shortcuts, but it doesn’t look like you are using one of these

@sprkwd @irimi1 “bitcoin idiots”don’t use GPU for mining

@nasser looking forward to it! I thought coroutines was a hack made by Unity devs in early days. Mostly because Unity was unsuitable for multithread development, lots of poor decisions were made. After async/await and job system became available, I don’t see much use for coroutines except interaction with legacy API.

I have to work with Steam, SteamVR and Windows at work. While Windows is getting better, the Steam is... oh... I wonder how they keep it working for so long with all these hacks and bugs

@oppen I guess it’s cheaper (short term) to hire 2 React Native developers than one for Kotlin/Java and one for Swift 😞

Our Webring now has its own unique search engine that crawls the ring's websites, and it's simply amazing. Lieu was built by @cblgh

@oppen why did you add MD5 there? Isn’t cert sha enough?

Keyboard heatmap after the day of work. I may move red and orange keys to the centre and blue to the edges to increase typing speed. But this will make my muscle memory incompatible with any other keyboard 🤔
