It's kind of sickening how many people assume that the "Rockstar Programmer" archetype is has somehow become the norm.

Don't get me wrong, I'm competent enough and have been known to pull a rabbit of the hat on occassion - but expecting this to be the norm at all times is maddening.

"What do you mean that the software doesn't have 6 programmers worth of work coded, while I've been pulling you into endless meetings so we no longer effectively have a single full-time developer?

Looks like that's not a persisting link - the chiptune stream is operated by Krelez ( Look in the channel listings for "Chiptune Radio".

There's two kinds of people in this world. Ones that talk about changing the font on the website, and the others that have that dead, hollow look in their eyes having gone through the process before.

@OldTinfoil @Katsudon Nextcloud is great! You have both Disroot and Operation Tulip for free Nextcloud hosting if you want to try it out or just stick with either service.

As part of my de-googling efforts, the one bit that truly saddens me is losing my US Google Voice #. That thing has been with me for over a decade.

30 days until it expires.

Day 63 (-1): Yesterday, I caved and downloaded (quantum). Although it's not , some of the other browsers didn't have all the functionality I needed to do my work.

If it had better password manager integration, would have been top of my list.

Slow progress is progress, right?

Day 63: Finally purchased a Protonmail account purchased and finally migrated my primary work email across.

It's a pity that one can't set up more e-mail forwarders on an account - means I couldn't wholeheartedly recommend it to clients.

I'm content just now - waiting for mobile conversation view to grace my prescence :)

Nice. A simple page to determine what sort of information your browser is leaking to every site that you visit:

That moment when you realise that you're being force to switch a project to run on Linux. Oh noes.

As much as I rate SO - Meta really grates on the soul. There's a reason why I try to stay the hell out of Meta discussion.

@OldTinfoil MSN Messenger is where it went all south. :P I

Day 41: Finally found a promising music player to replace Google Music - Poweramp.

It wouldn't have taken this long, but previously I had rejected Poweramp when I was looking for my first music player as it didn't have features I needed that the Google app contained. It does now.

Running with the free trial just now, but will buy the full version when I've been using it for a bit.
