TypeScript Rant Show more
I'm really starting to believe that #TypeScript's juice isn't worth the squeeze. Maybe for a project that's written in TS or one where you have few dependencies.
I've pretty much wasted ~4 hours with absolutely nothing to show for it.
Friday night musings: is anyone building a decentralized task management tool built on ActivityPub?
All of the tools out there are either too simple or too complex. Every one of them has a completely proprietary API so you've got a ton of lock-in if building tooling around it. Feels like open standards could help.
Today is the 45th day of the year. It also marks the 45th day in a row that I’ve meditated. A couple of days in January we’re just 1 minute, but it was still something.
My mood has improved during a time of year where the lack of sunlight normally saps my energy. I’ve started to notice that I’m aware of what’s happen, both good and bad, in near real-time.
I can’t recommend #meditation enough.
I don’t discuss lots of coding or tech challenges because they don’t interest me. I’m interested in people and using tech to make our world a better place.
As a result, politics are a necessary part of the discussion.

Huh, that's odd. My Home timeline completely disappeared doing an upgrade from 2.5.0 to 2.7.0. #mastodon
I absolutely love this interview from 1999.
"It's just a tool."
"No, it's an alien life form."
This #bloodmoon is pretty awesome! Gonna have some awesome photos out of it.
We just learned that pix.hostux.social has shut down.
We are sad to hear that, we have re-opened registrations in case any users want to join a reliable instance!
Best way to move instances on #Mastodon:
On your OLD account:
1. Export your follows, mutes and blocks: go to Settings, then Data Export, then download the CSV files (you do NOT need to request an archive to do this!)
2. Set your old account to redirect to the new one: go to Settings, then Edit Profile, then "Move To A Different Account" (at bottom of screen)
On your NEW account:
3. Upload your follows, mutes and blocks: go to Settings, then Import, then upload the CSV files
