The whole you have to want to change thing really tangles souls up

Personal individual trust has been replaced with corporate trust.

We trust corporations to do what they say they're going to do more than we trust other people to.

email self-host rambling 

I boosted a post recently from a veteran email self-hoster throwing in the towel because it's interesting and perhaps valuable insight but personally I haven't had any problems yet and I don't think I went in particularly knowledgeable or prepared. Definitely thought I'd have a lot more troubles with being the MX name. Besides bullshit client-side validation my bank is the only institution that filtered it out, even then I just had to ask about it and they fixed it.

I've done a lot to subdue the fear actually. Operations around here are a lot less haphazard and increasingly tested before deployed even. Still chaotic, but with a helmet on so to speak.

I think that MS dev getting so salty about VSCodium existing is reason enough to support VSCodium.

i don’t hate technology, i just think we shouldn’t force it on people who never asked for it

the world, both in the private and public sector and even socially, is becoming very in‌accessible to people without a recent android or apple phone. this MUST be stopped.

maybe not everyone wants to be a cyborg

tonight’s full moon, as seen from the front porch of this airbnb in Raleigh, NC
