I have been working mostly on Slate as a core contributor in my free time. It is a P2P file sharing client that I'm pretty amped about. github.com/filecoin-project/sl

"Everything we do to make it harder to create a website or edit a web page, and harder to learn to code by viewing source, promotes that consumerist vision of the web.

Pretending that one needs a team of professionals to put simple articles online will become a self-fulfilling prophecy. Overcomplicating the web means lifting up the ladder that used to make it possible for people to teach themselves and surprise everyone with unexpected new ideas. "

I've taken a six week break from posting thoughts to the internet. My bird site account no longer exists. I guess it's time to fully embrace and build the decentralized web.

Everything is translated over to Spanish (mx) and you can toggle between languages on the fly. Now Fortunæ should be able to localize to any language you throw at it provided you're using a base 10 decimal system.

Nevermind, I've decided to add Spanish as a second language. Bring on the chaos!

We've realized our dream of sailing to Japan, so that's done.

Now, let's see if we can survive 45 consecutive days at sea.

Fortunæ is complete, just writing documentation now. I still consider it a prototype / toy, but I think it will eventually become something more.

@uonai this may be worth keeping an eye on. github.com/zserge/webview

Seems it's picked up a bit of steam lately.

Definitely trying out Avalonia UI in my next cross platform desktop app project, Electron is consuming way too many resources.

I'm very uncomfortable that things just ~work~. There seems to be some dark magic at play that I need to dig into.

Just packaged my first Electron app, the builder / packager process still feels like a complete mystery.

@neauoire Just added the ability to switch themes. Mind if I ship this with some Hundred Rabbits themes (and of course credit you in the Readme)?

Fortunæ now has 1300 people signed up for beta. Room for a few more if anyone is interested? mailchi.mp/8b3a05c1b441/fortun
