@neauoire DoNESol is looking pretty nice! Are you going to do a writeup on any clever coding tricks you managed to sneak in? I'd be interested!

To library developers: I love your hip package names but please go for nonexistant names, developing a Rust+Rocket+Diesel application is getting pretty confusing!

@nolan I think we should just accept that tools don't age that well. I'm personally switching to Deno for small scripts and loving the experience, waiting for the ecosystem to catch up before going into bigger projects.

BTW: Don't buy a Kingston A400, those die way too easily and randomly (there's been a whole Phison controller fiasco lately). Get a Crucial BX500, it costs a bit more (33€ instead of 29€ for the 480GB model here), the BX500 has better speeds (~450MBps vs 300MBps) and will last you a lot more.

Plus, it's smaller inside, so you can design an even smaller case!

TL;DR I made some neat 3d printed cases for my Kingston A400!

I use cheap SATA SSDs as portable storage, since they are cheap and have amazing speed, plus you don't have to worry about moving parts!

Most SATA SSDs nowadays are very small but still have huge shells for mounting, so I made new shells! When they were done, I thought they looked like retro cartridges, so I designed some stickers to go with them!

🎂 Happy birthday to Aeris (Hamcha) who turned 7! 🎉

Daytona and Wipeout's Zone mode in a sonic fangame is not what I expected from 2019, but also what I didn't know I really wanted!

They also like to boast, here's a report of something similar they (Procura di Macerata) did back in 2004. I love the note where they say that those websites were using foreign IP addresses as an investigation countermeasure.


Lol italian authorities ordered a ban on a @Shopify
IP ( to ISPs because they can't figure out how the internet works. Good job!

Been playing SRB2 Kart lately and I love it, if you like your Mario Kart clones with extra chaos, you should give this Doom-based game a try!

Heyy I like the new mastodon, it's actually usable now!

Got a new messenger bag, was afraid that good ol' Eastpak Delegates weren't good enough for me anymore, boy was I wrong! Check that capacity!

@cancel Oh yeah I saw phantomstyle on your website, I'll see if I can get something up and working on my end. Thanks a lot!

@cancel Hey dude, I just discovered Ripcord and I absolutely love it! Any chance you're going to expand on custom theming? I'd love to have more spacing in a lot of places.

Interesting, Chrome's full text search ignores Unicode joins, but Firefox doesn't!
The following script will break full text search in Firefox, with zero (or almost zero) visible changes:

walk=document.createTreeWalker(document.body,NodeFilter.SHOW_TEXT,null,false); while(n=walk.nextNode()) n.textContent =n.textContent.replace(/([^\s])/ig, "\u200c$1");

Here it is, the secret formula to be a jerk:

rtl = x => "\u202e" +x.split("").reverse().join("")

Your generic mastodon instance for people who just want to have fun. Rules are pretty simple and moderation is lax, just remember to be a good boi!
