So #GitLab Pages has finally rolled out their automatic #LetsEncrypt integration for hosted web sites. It's quite painless and automatically renews certs. So glad that I don't have to manually do this or maintain some brittle CI-based scripts anymore.

If you've got a GL-hosted site, take the next 90 seconds and go secure it!

Fully migrated my @nextcloud data from a third-party server to a server today. Zero technical glitches! Why can’t it always be this easy to swap out service providers?

Waaaaat? Seattle Public Library has **killer** wifi. This is unexpected, given my past experience with internet in public libraries.

Although, since I now see the plaques on the wall about the Allen and Gates foundations' generous contributions, I guess I shouldn't be surprised.

😂 I suppose I could always work on making it through my open browser tabs

I'm at Inbox Zero for the first time in ages. But do I feel good? No. Panicky. I'm supposed to have emails to irritate me, and that space is just blank. Feels like 🐜 🐞 🐛

Somebody stop me! I got my personal @nextcloud instance up and running, and now I am installing too many apps

This is so cool 😍

I’m thinking about becoming the type of person who has a really long list of customizations for their beverage at the boba tea counter.

Spun up another server because I want to try to run my own @nextcloud instance.

Was not trying to learn the differences between `useradd` and `adduser` today, but it happened.

You should probably use `adduser`. It's built on `useradd` but takes care of more initial setup: it prompts you to set a login password, sets bash instead of sh as the default shell, creates a home directory, etc.

I got a job offer! I plan to accept. It will be my first developer role. :partyparrot:

Will have a chance to work in React/TypeScript, Node.js , Rust :rust:, and a few languages I haven't even tried.

What a wonderful way to start the weekend!

Wrote some vanilla today to keep sharp. It's amazing how much you can do without any libraries. I'm going to make a more consistent effort to avoid `npm install [bloat]` when it's not necessary.

Watching Sneakers (1992). Robert Redford as a physical pentester and social engineer before red teams got cool.

Did you know you can click an iPhone’s power button 5x, and it will disable fingerprint and facial recognition until you enter the password?

I respect Shoshana Zuboff’s work on . I am nearly finished with her book and share many of her concerns. But HOLY MOLY she likes to hold forth. I hope her work will continue to find popularizers who know how to get to the point.

Evidently this is the same material the company uses to train new hires!

I aim to get through all of them in the coming week.

"What both the right and left attacks on [the Communications Decency Act, Section 230] share is a willingness to use whatever excuses resonate--saving children, stopping bias, preventing terrorism, misogyny, and religious intolerance--to ensure more centralized control of online speech."
