wait a minute @nickstenning@twitter.com, why do I learn that you have a blog from a post in @simonw@twitter.com's blog? *subscribed*

In the last weeks I tried to sell stuff on
What a huge pile of shit that platform is. When navigating through the menus you can literary see how you are passed from one legacy app to another.

Is anyone here playing the Fallen London ? I could use some contacts in the game world to decrease my nightmares.

I received a "thanks for your open source projects" email this week! :)

I receive these once every year or two, and they're lovely. If you have really benefited from an open source library or tool, telling them can brighten up the author's day!

There are millions of smartphones produced with high-resolution displays that use very little power. These panels must be dirt cheap.

Yet, I cannot find a portable display that uses such a small panel.

I'd really like to have a portable external monitor, around 5 inches, powered by USB with HDMI + VGA inputs (even HDMI only would be ok).

I'm more than happy with 1280x720 resolution, even 1024x768 would suffice.

Any hints for such a product?

today is one of those days where I simply can't start anything

I miss the time where personal where more common than social media. So I was happy to stumble upon personalsit.es/ - a mini directory of personal sites. I subscribed to their feed and am working my way through it bit by bit, discovering new blogs to follow.

Okay Mastodon, who should I follow, if I want the following:

* a good mix of female, male and non-binary people
* broad topics talked about by geeky people
* english and german content

@kensanata I just tried trunk for the first time. But it fails at the authorization step: "Authorisation failed. Did you try to reload the page? This will not work since we're not saving the access token."

*sigh* I get crushes way too easily. and acting on them is no way easier (or advisable?) now with nearly forty than it was as a teenager...

This really captures how I feel about open-source funding. For those of us who do OSS in addition to our day jobs, money is far less valuable than time: github.com/moment/moment/issue

actually it does. but your constructor needs to call the parent constructor or you get a totally unhelpful error message

wait, phpunit is no longer calling the constructor on test files!?

customer wanted to ask for gender on the profile page. I asked what for and if he would provide a list of genders. he couldn't answer, so that idea was dropped again.
