Hi all if you are thinking about this end of the year. Please check out this meta search engine that my wife has just launched. Took special efforts to cover every range from budget to business class travels.

Please support and share. Thanks.

What if people stopped charging for public data and made data services free.

Put up a script on checking up instagrammers data. Put it up for free... I hope it benefits all who are being overcharged by their agencies for public data.

I’m noticing far fewer Karate and Kung-Fu schools in my area than there used to be. Proportionally, there’s an uptick in the number of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and MMA schools

I just unlocked my phone with one of my nipples. Turns out you can add them as "fingerprints"

Peertube seems to be the way to go to selfhost a video site, but posting my own videos on other instances isn’t really viable

I have a collection I’d like to upload, including a narration, but most instances have a 5Gb limit so that’s really going to eat up the quota

I can maybe try instead, but I feel weird about using it as my personal video channel

You often hear the term “standing on the shoulders of giants” in programming. But you really grok what that means in free software.

Let me illustrate: the first screenshot is the lines of code that I’ve written for Site.js after almost a year of work on it: a little over 10,000.

The second screenshot is the lines of code in Site.js: a little over 412,000.

Standing on the shoulders of giants means being able to create something by creating 2.48% of it.

PS. Lots of <3 to Node, JS, npm folks.

Yes, of course I want a rotary cell phone.

The power switch is an actual slide switch. No holding down a stupid button to make it turn off and not being sure it really is turning off or what.

In the past you can collect a free gift at the mall for spending $x. Today you have to spend, download the app, sign up before you get the gift. And you wonder why retail is dead. stay...

Made my day. I’ve been upkeeping RedHotBlock for almost 2 years. Got my first fan mail today.:)

Here's a flow chart of how the fediverse works.

You don't ever see all of the fediverse from one instance. The vast majority of what you see is people followed by people on your instance.

Hashtag searches are limited to that, too.

So if you want to make your bit of the fediverse good, you have to:

1) Boost cool stuff to all your followers on other instances, especially if they contain hashtags;

2) Use hashtags.

Feel bad that someone had to ping me on FB messenger so that I remember to get back on Masto. Reality has been so busy. Happy New Year! #2020
