The current state of web development is exhausting. I got into it because it was fun and I got to create rather than only fix when working in IT. But now it's become this mountain of stuff to learn and I don't know if I have the energy or the want to do it. I don't know what my next step will be, but my hope is that in the next 5 years I'll be in a different career, preferably working for myself.

@hund I tend to say "free open source software" because for the majority of people I've said it to understand it (Even if they don't fully get the open source bit). I tried saying Libre software, because I thought it was a little more concise, but found myself having to explain what it meant every time.

What remote desktop client would you recommend for internal network use? (Connecting to my laptop from my desktop, both running Ubuntu 19.10)


You've got to be kidding me. After all these years...

@ari literally every experience I've had with Java software is "this is broken why does anyone use it"

Coming from Sass, I thought I'd hate styled-components. I think I still like Sass more, but I definitely see the appeal.

@lunduke I went to your site to subscribe to your RSS feed. The web developer in me wanted to convert your table to a css grid and make it responsive. Don't get me wrong, I don't want you to change a thing about it. My web dev OCD just kicked in. :yay:

In case you missed it, ProtonMail #Android now lets you access multiple accounts from your Android device. No more logging in and out of your different accounts. With multi-account support, you can manage all your communications on the go. Read more here:

@malin Never thought of it that way but you're right! And I thought having no documentation was the worst.

Negative Documentation:

A new phrase I'm making, for those times when there's documentation, the documentation is wrong, and you spend an additional 3 hours trying to decypher the mess before finding out that 0 documentation is not the worst possible state of affairs.

@Katsudon @matt Absolutely. We can't have developers with their tickets and stories and sticky notes in different columns hanging around. Walking out of your office and changing requirements on a whim with no reason or discussion behind it is what good tried and true managerial skills is all about! /s

"A group of 50 states and territories in the US have launched an investigation into Google's dominance of the online advertising market."

@matt I guess not. Even though from what she said, all 6 of us have had the same reason for leaving (the dev manager).
