Boosts appreciated.
I'm close to moving back to Windows. I can't tell you how frustrating it is to hold oneself back, deny oneself better and easier accessibility in the name of open source, when many open source developers don't give a crap about accessibility, and/or don't educate themselves on it. KDE connect, GSConnect, all were inaccessible for one reason or another, not the least because of Gnome-shell's terrible accessibility issues. That was just the last straw. With the only thing holding me to Linux being Emacs+Emacspeak, I think its time to quit Linux and just use what actually works. It's interesting how being "free" just means being under the power and whim of other people, a mass of developers who have no insentive for accessibility, rather than a cohesive company who does. This is serious, and I want every developer to understand this, understand my deep frustration with FOSS.

This is what eBay think I should buy in their "Night Time is the Right Time for shopping" 1/2

To Apples credit, they didn't block search word advertising for a iOS app for Chromecast devices when users search for an Apple app.

Hade några timmar att slå ihjäl idag så jag skaffade en ny(are) bil.

I sat down to write about my decision to make Podcast Chapters a straight up paid app again. Halfway through the text, I realized a different option was staring me in the face. So, the text which rejected a binary:

Because some folks missed it, despite me trumpeting it everywhere:

"TLS Mastery" is out! Choose between Beastie Edition or Tux Edition -- the only difference is the cover. Or there's the hardcover, with BOTH.




I can’t believe I’m having to write this code in a fucking web server. What a mockery of the web, human rights, and the GDPR.

Fuck you, Google!
