My number guessing game was straightforward (there is an example in The Book). I went on and wrote an algorithm to find a Fibonacci number (with tests).

I’d like to implement a few more common data structures and algorithms this week.


Wow! I completed the tutorial today! I still wouldn't say I'm any good at :rust:, but it's a little less scary.

I think I'll use to make a project now. How about a number guessing game?

Spent hours trying to get this to work. I might actually have to read the docs...

#MastoAdmin tip: if you have access to your nginx configuration, consider adding an X-Clacks-Overhead header to your server. Add this line to your server{} block for 443/SSL connections:

add_header X-Clacks-Overhead "<your text here>";

Your text can be as long as you want. I recommend starting with
"GNU Terry Pratchett" and going from there.

This will be invisible to the average viewer, but the message will be sent with every HTTPS response.

Oops, the egg cup was American. Here’s a better example from the Victorian Radicals collection. Young Jesus found in the temple. Incredibly vibrant colors, almost shimmering.

I’m enjoying the indigenous art much more, actually. Behold: Mouse Woman guarding the secret dance of the animals

Checking out the Victorian Radicals exhibit at the Seattle Art Museum today.

How would you use an ostrich egg cup?

I know everybody knows this stuff already. But I use YT so seldom that I don’t recall the alt-right being recommended before. I feel drained. I loved to watch let’s plays back in the day.

I am not signed in to Google, and I use Cookie AutoDelete for Firefox to clear my cookies whenever I leave a tab. I navigated to this YouTuber (a political lefty) via a bookmark. I always use a VPN, etc.

In other words, this is what YT recommends independently of my user profile or the specific orientation of the content creator.

Watching a video on YouTube for the first time in a while, a Skyrim playthrough.

YouTube suggests I watch a few videos with Pepe the Frog on the thumbnail next.

It didn't used to be like this. 😥

I don't know what this says about the state of web development, but it says something.

If you use Firefox or Chrome, we developed an easy way you can help people bypass censorship.

Our Snowflake extension turns your browser into a proxy that connects Tor users in censored regions to the Tor network.

Darn tootin'.

I left my third-party provider in part because the business owner said file encryption is only available with external storage. Told me to read the docs.

I had read the docs! Now that I'm , I don't have to worry about that guy.

I use for most of my projects. They're becoming indispensable. So grateful they're around!

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 🐜 🐞 🐛
