1998: IRC? lol anon, why don’t you use ICQ instead, it’s much better.

2002: IRC? lol anon, just install MSN, stop being such a nerd. 2006: IRC? lol anon, with Skype you can make phone calls for free. 2010: IRC? lol anon, Chat is all you need, everybody is there already. 2014: IRC? lol anon, you should try WhatsApp, you can even send voice messages. 2018: IRC? lol anon, that's prehistoric! you should checkout Discord and Slack, so much better.

I haven’t posted often here recently so this is a overdue update! I was having a lot of fun learning using Emacs to do things, and hanging around in SDF and tilde servers using my phone.

As a long time vimmer learning emacs is hard! But I was really motivated by the benefit of picking it up and being able to use all its applications. E.g Now I am doing email in GNUS, IRC in erc, all under the same buffer management, editing, navigation key bindings. They are also built in!

Hi friends, I’m looking for a good RSS reader on iPhone. Any suggestion?

#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.

I haven’t finished reading but can’t wait to share - this article talks about history of MUD and MOO.

How to check messages in 1984! So this modem actually fits on a telephone headset 📞 so it can “talk” (literally!) to the other end!

The guy dialing in from a Tokyo hotel could literally be a scene in William Gibson’s Neuromancer 😲

It’s a tough and trusty laptop. I bought it 13 years ago. A corner was cracked and I duct taped it (about 10 years ago). Breathing new life into this guy tonight.

Keyboard typing experience is much improved since last year when I tried. It allows virtual keyboard to overlay with hardware keyboard. Also, hand tracking is becoming useful, but still not quite accurate as pointing device.

The Expanse, maybe spoiler, but only season 2 

Watched some more The Expanse last night. Now at season 2, I came to the revelation that this is Game of Thrones in the space 🚀

The new skateboard arrived. Had a splash💦 (literally) riding with my daughter while strolling the baby!

Last night I finished The Expanse season 1. Great show! Fascinating depiction of interplanetary human society! Highly recommend!

Hi I'm looking for work again

Notable experience: I wrote the Mastodon documentation and I help manage Pixelfed

Resume: resume.abdullahtarawneh.com/

Looking for documentation, technical writing, could also do Github issue triage or junior programming, project/product management

Can be either a permanent role or a temporary contract thing

Just got back from a small local nursery today. Love the great weather and seeing people getting back to normal lives.

A silly experiment 

Ok this is maybe one of the most stupid setup I’ve tried... but I kind of like it! The keys feel rubber-ish and since I can only type with thumbs I can’t be really fast. And the most stupid thing is the phone is much heavier than the keyboard so it feels tipping🤦🏻

Its perfect for the terminal app as none of the screen is taken by soft keyboard.

I’ve used this setup for several days and get used to it. But now my eyes hurt looking at the small screen for too long 👀

I access tildes and sdf terminal from my phone so much that I’m DIY a handheld keyboard on top of which I can clip on my phone. This way I can also save screen space b/c the soft keyboard isn’t needed anymore. Parts ordered and will arrive on Wednesday. We’ll see how it plays out. 🤞

If you have a similar setup please let me know!

Just heard that Diablo 2 is being remastered and will be available on many platforms including nintendo switch! I might get it as a long time D2 fan!

Listening to local NPR station and enjoying spring sunshine with little R. After that I’ll switch to the morning local HAM net I’ve been listening to. Absolutely love this low cost radio!
