The developers of the appsneed to step up their . I'll try to file a few issues but don't wait for me. Label those buttons! Let me know if you would like me to test any updates. Let's make Mastodon usable by everyone!

@veer66 Ah. I learned Common Lisp in college. How would you compare it with Clojure?

@veer66 How has learning Clojure affected your Ruby? I love Ruby, it serves my day to day needs well, but I do like learning to think in new ways.

@mookie Yes! QEMM and DESQview! And I had to throw a TSR screen reader into the mix. I keep wanting the BBS to return for exactly that reason. We had to go through so much to have a two-line BBS. Now we can easily have it with the internet and modern operating systems.

've decided to learn a functional programming language. I enjoyed in college so have considered and maybe a dilect. Some friends have tried to conince me to go with , especially because I already do a lot of work in . I do appreciate the elegant Lisp syntax and its rich history.

Speaking of H/P/A, a friend triggered her work's firewall by trying to listen to this weird piece of audio from the Phone Losers of America. phonelosers.org/media/Relay_Op

@andy @mookie Interesting. Yes I think I know what you mean about the comparison with the H/P/A scene.

@triptych Hopefully they will remember that they got in trouble for something like this in the past.

@jrconlin A friend and I recently went through this dilemma. We use rclone to do cloud backups, but could easily configure it to make encrypted backups to an external drive. Then take it to a safe deposit box or whatever and there you go, super safe storage that you own. It still seems tempting even after getting cloud storage working, or perhaps because of it.

I have a meditation app in the works, so today's announcement about improved heart rate monitoring interests me.

@mookie Did you ever run a BBS back in the day? I loved running one and plan to create a modern day BBS software, so fascinates me for that reason.
