I put up my gopher server and I've actually posted a couple of things there, so maybe it's not an impulse server decision.

"This bookmark manager supports fuzzy search"

For some reason, this does seem like much of a feature.

Any recommendations for a local bookmark server/system that isn't awful to set up?

It's only for personal use. "Cloud" is unnecessary. If it's web-based, something that goes in cgi-bin would be sufficient. Even a decent Firefox plugin is fine.

As a side effect, I am no longer using Emacs purely in a terminal. Slightly conflicted about that.

Decided to start using FreeBSD as a desktop OS again. Emacs X Window Manager ftw.

Fonts are still kinda lame compared to Win10 and macOS, but at least I'm not using bitmap ones anymore.

Apress, being a bunch of jerks.

I've tried every combination of those checkboxes and I keep getting their ridiculous offers. Seriously, look at the junk being pumped out.

I'm really happy to help Canada Learning Code, but I wish they would stop writing this sort of thing.

"The web without HTML and CSS would be would be a world without colourful, pretty websites, not to mention the web applications we all use daily. It’s easy to learn, and was designed so that everyone - even non-programmers - can do it."

i wonder how long until someone runs a non-existent candidate for president solely on the internet, and the person is a rendering like those fake instagram people.

It's seriously disappointing that it's impossible to read the #FreeBSD Foundation's website without getting tracked by Google, CloudFlare, MaxCDN, and KnightLab. It also presents Google CAPTCHAs as denial of service.

From the #FreeBSDFoundation I'd really expect more respect with regards to website visitor's privacy. All that tracking isn't even remotely mentioned in their privacy policy.

Dear FreeBSD Foundation: Please step up your game in supporting privacy!

In many ways, I miss NNTP. Is anyone doing something akin to it these days?

Decentralization, probably unpleasant take. Show more
