Increasingly bloated codebases seems like an obstacle to "software freedom".

If a codebase is so large that it's rendered basically inscrutable then how free is anyone really to inspect what their machine is running.

Basically, being a binary blob or restrictively licensed is not the only obstacle that we should be concerned about, I'd say. But of course it is a good start.

Had a bunch of beautiful trees outside our living room window in the apartment. They were apparently cut down today :(

I guess that makes it less sad that I'm moving out in a month so... silver lining...?

I want a federated/#fediverse self hosted git (or general dvcs) service.

It's kinda hard to collaborate with friends who've moved off github to things like gitea or whatever without having an account on their instance.

I feel a bit spoiled implementing my compiler in . Still very early of course (only spent two short evening sessions with it) but it feels like I get a lot done with not a lot of code or time.

It's a shame that I'll probably have to drop racket eventually to cut down compile times to what I want.

Main thing slowing me down is that I'm trying to see what it's like to use instead of ( is completely OP)

#GMail is harmful to e-mail ecosystem; its antispam blocking policy matches too many valid messages as spam.

It blocked LastPass email leak warning email, because it contained "a link" to a leaked site.

It blocked an e-mail from goverment agency addressed directly to me.

It discriminates all non-gmail servers, and it's pretty much impossible to own a private SMTP server these days, because GMail will classify everything as spam.

It's not how e-mail should work.

Consider dropping GMail.
