@cblgh Nice. I was analyzing various funding pages and yours was on my list to check out again – that artisanal progress bar made an impression on me the first time :)

@nolan I use unique selectors like XYZSectionComponent so that it's trivial to replace all and change it. I find Zombie pretty fast for my ui testing needs.

"Bad faith is the condition of the modern internet, and shitposting is the lingua franca of the online world. And not just online: A troll is president. Trolling won. Perhaps we can agree that these platforms aren't suited to the earnest exchange of big ideas."

@bartleby I believe this is one of the developers talking about it, but I'm not sure to what extent it gets uploaded, I don't understand the technical aspect yet twitter.com/moxie/status/12813

Did I read this right? Signal uploads your contacts to their servers after you set a PIN? Possible to opt out of that? hackers.town/@feonixrift/10448

signal app 

So Moxie backtracked and says they'll push a fix to make pins optional. Meanwhile if you don't add a pin (which the app still doesn't say will /upload your signal contact list into the signal servers/) you can't get back in to coordinate a platform switch with your secure contacts. Unless you were already using the desktop app which isn't pin locked, or somehow manage to downgrade the phone app.

Suddenly being held data-hostage -- turn over this data or you can't talk to the people, not even to arrange a different means of contact -- without any forewarning is unacceptable and a perfect example of why centralized infrastructure and single-client rather than interoperable systems are a major failure.

I recently disabled my emoji keyboard and would like to integrate this behaviour into apps. Superior UX.

there's been quite a bit of research on the cognitive/health benefits of multilingualism, but I think the framing tends to be backwards. multilingualism isn't a bonus, but the default (historically, anthropologically, biologically). our species developed multilingual, and still is everywhere not too damaged by colonial steamrollers. monolingualism is a v recent development, an emergent artifact of a capitalist+racist society.

so we should be talking about the cognitive damage of monolingualism.

Releasing a flashcards app inspired by Anki kommit.dev – hear with text-to-speech, record audio, cross-device sync with my beloved backend @remotestorage, works offline and on mobile. Allons-y!

@cblgh The demo was so fast I had to stop and think to understand what really happened there. Really cool concept and implementation. 👍🏽

Linux and open source are very important but not being murdered by fascists is a bit more important
