@dajbelshaw When you were talking about alternatives to store your photos, did you consider using NextCloud? I haven't used it *yet* but everything I've seen about them is cool, specially that you can choose where to store the files.

I've checked the permanent.org website and it's a bit sketchy that you can't read anything (not even the "about" page) without entering the beta... But well, let's see how it turns out.

Since I started looking into , I realized it's built on top of many existing technologies I didn't know much about. Check out some basic concepts I'd recommend getting familiar with before learning it: noeldemartin.com/tasks/impleme

I enjoyed this talk by Rizqi Djamaluddin, where he goes into why data privacy is important and how we should be handling it: "Fundamentally Flawed: Privacy, People and the Age of Data" youtube.com/watch?v=Ucz0UFaYuv

Interesting, an open letter from DHH (Basecamp CTO) to Jeff Bezos (he was an early imvestor) m.signalvnoise.com/dear-jeff-a

Yesterday I published a new blog post talking about Open Productivity, a new approach I'll be taking on how I communicate my work: noeldemartin.com/blog/open-pro

you can use `array_filter` in PHP without providing the filter callback, and it will get rid of all the falsy values. Sweet! I've written logic for this myself many times, so I'll definitely start using this instead.

@Gargron what will you use to populate the preview? tw:*, og:* meta tags? Mastodon specific tags? Something else?

@dajbelshaw Are you familiar with the Web Accessibility Initiative from W3C? I haven't used it myself but I know the guys at Basecamp use it, so I've been meaning to check it out :D

I guess if I want to charge it as fast as possible, I can always apply the ultimate "battery saving mode": turning it off.

I wonder why my phone doesn't allow activating "battery saving mode" when charging. Wouldn't it charge faster?

@Floppy Hm yeah I see. I guess the safer way to go about it is indeed having a single text field and dumping whatever they type in the database, with some sensible length limitations.

I'll keep it in mind for my next apps!

Mastodon is awesome, I just favorited a bot's toot, I'm not sure I have ever done that in the birdsite.

In case you're wondering, it was @alt_text

I just found out the app I use to listen podcasts has a "hidden" stats page. And I've realized how much time I spend listening to them. I enjoy them, but I consume them mostly when I cannot do anything else like reading or programming (basically exercise/commuting). Bittersweet.

I'm sure if I eliminated my commute there are some I would still keep listening thou :D.

@dajbelshaw So far Musashi, by Eiji Yoshikawa. I haven't finished it yet, but I don't want it to end 😱

There are two kinds of developers: the ones who rely on logging output and the ones who use a debugger.

I fall on the first category, but today I had to use a debugger (I needed to find a memory leak).

It was a good experience, so be sure to combine both to get the best of both worlds!
