Hi! I'm Accio ^^
I'm (going to be, starting this fall) a university student studying and .

Other interests/hobbies/attributes include:


Dear @gitlab, after reading this, I am ashamed to be using your product:

We will stop using it as soon as we can manage to and I will stop recommending you to others. Unlike you, we don’t associate with folks incompatible with our values.

Shame on you.


mastodon is like Sesame street where a muppet announces the word of the day and the whole town loses their shit over it

I see so much uninformed opinion dressed up and pretending to be objective analysis. Please, do not do that.

Genie: You have ONE WISH.

Me: Alright, I have one, but it's very detailed.
Genie: As long as it is only one wish, you're allowed to spend as much time as you want detailing it.

Me: Alright, here we go. *Grabs notebook and takes a deep breath* The key words MUST, MUST NOT, REQUIRED, SHALL, SHALL NOT, SHOULD, SHOULD NOT, RECOMMENDED, MAY, and OPTIONAL are to be interpreted as described in [RFC2119].

Genie: Wait, is that...?

Me: *Flips notebook* Chapter 1. Preamble.

Something that would really change my life as a FOSS dev is that people stop seeing FOSS as a finished product but instead as a best effort collective work by people that are [in position off] contributing for free on their free personal time on it and gave it to you for free [when this situation apply].

Like stop saying that "this is total shit" because you had bugs or because it wasn't top 100% perfect like you want for your super edge case that it wasn't designed for -_-

I hear this all the time:

"I'm a nobody; why would anyone want to hack me?"

I've got six reasons for you:

You have money.
You have good credit.
You were randomly chosen.
You pissed off the wrong person.
Your friend or family members pissed off the wrong person.
You put yourself out there as an online entrepreneur, Twitch streamer, YouTuber, etc.

If you think no one would ever try to hack you, you need this episode.

There's going to be a live YouTube Premier of this episode at YourSecure.Life/2 at 5 PM Eastern US time.

If you're not seeing this post until after that time, don't can still watch it. Any time, anywhere. Just go to the website.

There is also an audio version (it is a podcast afterall) and a text version of the transcripts, if you're more into reading.

Just re-upping this offer: because being comfortable with git is a barrier to entry to many FS/OSS projects, and because I care deeply about lowering those barriers, I will tutor anyone who asks for help with git, and/or connect them with any mentor(s) they might prefer.

I'll do this while I put energy and work into making the tool more approachable, and into making better tools and learning paths.

Boosts gratefully appreciated.


Can anyone recommend a viable alternative to Goodreads (being able to store the books that I've read, the books I want to read, and various other related things about my reading)? I would really appreciate it if it had a mobile app option.

Part of Bob Ross being as calm as he was was that he was in the military, in positions that required him to be "tough" and "mean," saying that if he ever left, he would never yell or raise his voice again

*Doorbell* Me: Hello? Fireman: Hi - do you have a smoke detector? Me: Yes. Fireman: Test it regularly? Me: Every time I cook.
