Nice to see Gemini is slowly gaining traction

At this point, I no longer feel it is merely morally permissible to violate copyright, but rather one’s *moral duty* to subvert the vast majority of copyright. “Intellectual property” is a thoroughly disgusting Orwellianism.

We have entered a period where a samizdat underground is necessary to sustain the basic facets of civilization. And public education is a central pillar of the commonweal.

#Torrent every goddam thing.

The Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality continues to add a lot of great games. They have Celeste now, which is probably the best platformer of all time. Some other favorites of mine include They Bleed Pixels, Super Hexagon, A Short Hike, and Oxenfree. There's also heaps of tabletop games and asset packs for game devs. You need to pick this bundle up, it is the best deal in the history of gaming.

They've raised almost $5M now for BLM-related causes.

Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality

This bundle is NUTS. Great games, good cause. Go buy it.

I have an idea for videocast / yt series. I'd record myself visiting various sites with mobile Firefox and shame shitty web designers who can't make website that works well on mobile. It's fucking 2020, most people use smartphones.

Docker and Electron are the most hyped new technologies of the last five years. Both are not about improving things, figuring out complexity or reducing it. Both are just compromised attempts to hide accumulated complexity from developers because it became impossible to deal with.

This is exactly why I hate using Docker.

I'll try to hack alternative backend in Go to get rid of JS on the server at least. This should be fairly easy:

I'll think about some alternative frontends later.

I'm sold on

While I'd prefer to use something less dependent on JS I probably won't find anything as productive anytime soon.

- I can access my wiki from almost any device (this blows org-mode out of the water)
- Underlying data is still plain text
- It's powerful as heck and hackable
- It's probably best Smalltalk experience in the browser you can get

Bad stuff:
- JS
- Load times are slow (works fine when loaded)
- I forget macro names
- Hard to find well-designed theme

Caddy v1 -> v2 transition fucking sucks.

Well, encoded forward slashes are breaking reverse proxy in Caddy 1. Caddy 2 does not have auth plugins I need. Damn.

I found some time to read about TiddlyWiki. It's absolutely stunning how powerful it is (but also scary since it is huge pile of js in self modifying html file)

My uncle bought Yamaha MX 49. I'm not too impressed with its sound shaping capabilities but it has one great feature. When plugged to PC via USB cable it works as audio interface so you don't need additional (and expansive) piece of equipment to record stuff you play on your brand-new synth.
