Mastodon is my favourite social media platform and one of the reasons is that it never feels like it’s luring you in. I know that I can check my home feed two or three times a day and it will only take about five minutes each time and it does a much better job than the birdsite of showing me what I’m interested in.
If I check Mastodon more frequently, I know that there won’t be anything new, so I never feel the urge for a quick refresh.
I’m really proud of the healthy relationship I’ve been building with social media platforms lately.
In the past, I would could spend hours looking at absolute rubbish which brought me no joy at all, but now I quickly get bored looking at the stuff.
I deleted Facebook years ago, but it’s taken me a long time to realise that all the others are just as bad. I haven’t deleted accounts on all of the other platforms, but I no longer have a craving to check them every five minutes.
I'm trying to score 100 goals in 2021. Check out how I got on in March!
The day has arrived. I can finally present you all my new project.
Inspired by NewPipe, Nitter, Invidious or Bibliogram, here comes Lingva, an alternative Front-end for Google Translate.
It's a completely Free and Open Source project, so you can host your own instance. The directions are on the project's README.
You can also make any kind of contribution. Feel free to Pull Request.
I didn’t mind really. I’d built a habit of turning my laptop on and then going to get a drink.
There have been so many times when I go to the bathroom and realise I have to turn the light on with the switch by the bed. Everything is so obnoxious and everything feels like a giant step backwards. This whole ordeal really reiterates to me how pointless smart technology is and how it tries to solve problems that don’t really exist.
Staying in a Chinese “smart” hotel and it’s by far the most annoying hotel I’ve ever stayed in.
First thing I did was unplug the Alexa like device. I don’t want it recording everything my wife and I say.
But really it’s a bit like a classic UI vs UX problem that’s annoyed me the most. “Let’s make the room look “clean” and “minimal” by only having one set of light switches in the whole room.
