I am fucking done....over with....fed up with fucking recaptcha. Trying to log into discord and I had to spend 5min solving recaptcha challenges for every login attempt. This is fucking hostile to users that I can't stand it. Why am I being unpaid labor for fucking google?

It's not for everyone maybe, but I think handcoding a web site in html and css is less work than doing a comparable site in wordpress. Just text, links and image galleries, and a couple php tags so I can use one menu across all pages.

Maybe I'll think about a way to add a form eventually, but that's not important right now.

I'm pumped about my 1.2 second load time, and that's before I've optimized images.

I told my friend about it and she did not understand the joy this brings. 😆

A lot of small businesses use huge clunky database sites, when a minimal site like this would serve them way better. (In my opinionated opinion.)

I started to ad some mods last night to the SBC #minetest server. We now have compost and weather.

I don't care what anyone says, John Gillim sure knows how to title a book.

@ChrisWere @prismo, the fediverse is beckoning a lurker’s dream. I don’t need tons of accounts to follow and stay updated with people. I’m not really active on a lot of platforms, but it doesn’t stop me from interacting with the people who are active.

#Trunk is a community-run directory of people on the Fediverse who are looking for followers:

communitywiki.org/trunk

It's opt-in, so people only get listed if they specifically ask to be there.

It's organised by topic, and you can follow individuals or the entire list for that category.

Great. Google have added a level of bureaucracy to their OAuth, requiring apps be verified before people can grant access to their accounts.

Since I missed the initial notice this was happening, and the verification process can take *weeks*, the #mailpile credentials may be disabled. Nobody will be able to download their mail for who knows how long.

Nothing anti-competitive to see here, this is fine. Just use the official Google apps, you'll have fewer problems.

In the name of security... 😞
