@tomasino @tomasino@pixelfed.tomasino.org the food you make looks amazing 👀

Been playing chess lately and I think correspondence chess would be perfect for something like rawtext.club

Today was my last day at the university I have worked at since I was a student developer. I started there as a CS student in 2014, got hired on as a student mobile developer in my sophomore year, and then graduated into a full time position in which I worked 3 years.

I feel deep down it has been time to move on, but I must say I am sad to leave. It’s been a part of my life for years now and it’s hard to say goodbye.

But, I’m moving on to a new job in which I expect to grow a lot and focus more on my interest in iOS development.

Watched Black Narcissus last night and the cinematography was absolutely beautiful wow. Wasn’t super into the plot line, but beautiful imagery. Beats a lot of today’s standards.

Watched Mulholland Drive and naturally have now joined Letterboxd and downloaded Criterion Channel. I’m ready to watch more crazy movies.

well I re-downloaded instagram today.

its honestly worse than when I left it. the tab bar buttons keep changing around. They moved the upload and likes tab w/ like shopping tabs. And I notice they change based on which account I'm on. Like they change dynamically. Not w/ each update.

Also its a friendly reminder that targeted ads are gross. I don't think I'll keep it very long, but I do enjoy seeing posts from my friends. But, there has been something special about just finding out stuff from your friends when you hang out instead of from a broadcasted post.

Overall, I feel like I haven't missed much, but I'm giving it another try. Felt great telling Instagram not to track on iOS 14.5 tho. Even though they'll track me a billion other ways.

its been so long since I been on the small internet. my poor botany plants have probably died twice by now

@nytpu awesome! I hope to one day get a scanner. I used to tape film to plexiglass, lean it against my TV, and play a 10 hour white video on YT and take photos with a macro lens on my Sony digital lol. Quite a pain!!

But, I could take 4 photos of one frame in each “quadrant” and stitch them together in PS to create a super high res “scan”.

As a stepping stone toward multiple windows, Lagrange v1.4 will have split-screen modes.

You essentially get two copies of the full UI side by side. Very useful for large displays, viewing something on the side, or just browsing two pages simultaneously.

This required substantial changes in the UI internals, but it'll make multiple windows a lot easier to do in the future.


I'm going to go out on a tums overdose

Hey, ignore people who tell you things you make "aren't art". It's gatekeeping

Did you wish to express an idea or emotion? Did you take a transformative action in the process? Congratulations! You made An Art!

We can all decide if we like it or not. We can try to figure out if it's Good. We can debate whether it belongs in galleries and museums. But it is most definitely art.

There shouldn’t be any shame in writing small software. Everything doesn’t have to “scale”.

If you build something cool it’s valid and good if it makes you or just a few people happy.

This doesn’t make you a bad programmer.

It’s pretty sad that a lot of non-KYC crypto exchanges can’t be used by US citizens due to our strict KYC regulations. I’m not trying to evade taxes I just want to swap from lightning Bitcoin to Monero or even XLM.

What’s even worse is that this is tiny in comparison to what others face in other countries.

@nx @aral I don’t think nano plans to add anything. It kinda does the fast and feeless thing well and it’s sticking to that from what I understand.

@aral there is also banano which is a meme coin based off nano, but they’re actually planning on adding a privacy feature to it called camo banano.

@nytpu while I love how easy Node.js and express are to get up and running, I would be very sad if I had to write JS for a living.

Tbh, being a mobile developer and writing in Swift and Kotlin is amazing.

tooth drama 

I'm having a somewhat tough time. I have, not one, but TWO broken teeth; one on each side. I feel lucky as my dentist said they should be keepable, but will require root canals.

It's better than I expected (extraction), but I had to reschedule my first endodontist consultation, which pushed it back like two weeks. THEN, my entire city was shut down for a week due to snow...which pushed it back another week.

It was fine for a while, and its manageable, but I have to clean out two broken teeth every time I eat. Its starting to become very taxing and old, meanwhile the teeth are getting worse and worse. Its hard to keep pain away, and of course infection could strike at any time.

And I'm literally waiting on JUST THE CONSULTATION. I won't even be given relief, I don't think.

I cannot wait until this is resolved and I can eat normally and go back to living a somewhat normal life (as normal as things can be right now).

If you're familiar w/ enneagram (I know its not real science), I'm a type 7 and type 7 "fear" resounds true with me. Its fear of pain or discomfort. And right now my days are filled with constant tooth maintenance and pain and discomfort. And the only solution, is two root canals, the prime example of discomfort, so much so its almost cliche.

Over all its affecting my mental health (its even making me sleep worse) and draining me, and I just needed a place to let it out.
