I spent this afternoon reading about 2G/3G phones in the US and how they'll be outdated as late as December of this year.
I'm wondering now what sort of phone can people that are energy/privacy/bloat consistence get?
I was going to use an old nokia phone, but that won't work with my carrier according to online.
I think I gave Crystal a bad rep. I keep coming back to it because it does what I need it to without stepping too much on my toes.
Bash + C + Crystal may be my focus considering that ecosystem would do everything I need on a Unix System.
I think there still may be a caching issue according to the logs.
I'll keep playing around with it
I'm compiling a list of different hosting/git/static-site providers to put on my wiki for others to use:
Please let me know if something should be added or removed.

Zoom acquired Keybase today.
Keybase helped me to identify a trend in the software industry: using a pretty UI to cover up the disruption of an open ecosystem with a closed, centralized replacement. Keybase seemed cool on the face of it - making encryption easier is a laudible goal, and PGP certainly could use the improvement. But, thanks to Keybase, now I ask different questions upfront.
Beware the Keybase formula:
1. Integrates with an existing, open ecosystem
2. May have open-source clients, but server is closed source and does not federate
3. Pretty UI and good marketing
4. VC funded
Making some changes in the devices I use.
Finally moving all things off my old Macbook to move start utilizing my thinkpad more. Selling whatever devices I don't use daily.
I'm trying to synchronize everything between devices so I'm moving all notes to org and looking to ways to sync all that.
Creating a more efficient workflow for myself is a bit challenging but I think it's worth it.

Very convenient for when you want to read a long entry.
Uploaded the tileset for the game I'm working on to Itch.io. I'll be uploading more as I create more assets to use.
I want to make the assets I create free to use for others to build upon.
End up making a bash script to read some mastodon toots offline. I made it for myself in an effort of having more ways to access content offline. It's nothing special, just trying to create more lightweight and offline focused tools for use with minimal or older systems systems (much like my arch thinkpad setup with spotty wifi)
