A million billion apologies to all of you who have @-ed me about Smog, and I didn't get back to you!

For some weird reason I didn't get any notifications here and I only saw them earlier when I clicked Notifications completely by mistake.

If you ever want to reach me and seem to ignore you here, my email is always open! Things that run in web browsers may lie and malfunction, but mutt doesn't!

Amfora v1.8.0 is now out! Enjoy! Two things I'd like to highlight:

- Media type handlers - open non-text files in another application

- Rendering very long documents is now ~96% faster, excluding gemtext parsing

Try it out, explore Gemini, report bugs, and donate if you can! 😁

The problem with computer literacy classes is that they don’t teach computer literacy, they teach consumerism.

A Chinese Canadian restaurant in #Montreal has brutally honest descriptions of the food (and the chap running it helps migrants learn English and French in spare space in the building)

The sphinx sat still, elegant, poised. But when a pair of mice ran up to it, the cat part of it had to pounce.
"Wait, wait," they screamed, "we have a riddle for you!"
"What is the answer to life, the universe, and everything?"
"Too simple," said the sphinx, and ate them.

@xj9 just look at these happy Gemini users. I'll grab a TShirt and maybe a hoody in the morning!

If anyone is interesting in trying out a beta version of Amfora I'd appreciate it! Help find those bugs!

I write some stuff on my blog every now and then (and on my gemlog on the same domain). I dislike reminding people of my existence every time I post something, so I won't be peddling it for every post :) But here it is, in case someone's interested:
