One thing I'll never forgive Apple for is making impossibly-thin laptops the new hotness. This is in part because my laptop doesn't have enough bezel to actually keep the screen from touching the keyboard, so now I have a permanent keyboard-impression on my screen.

(Note: This post isn't a church door, so please don't nail your 95 theses about other things that Apple does that annoy you.)

Start all of your commands with a comma
https://rhodesmill.org/brandon/2009/commands-with-comma/

> By simply prefixing each of my custom commands with a comma, they became completely distinct from system commands and thus free from any chance of a collision.
>
> best of all, thanks to the magic of tab-completion, it became very easy to browse my entire collection of commands. When trying to remember which of my commands are available in my ~/bin/ directory on a given system, or when simply trying to remember what some of my commands are called, I simply type a comma followed by tab and my list of commands appears

I've done a "Beginner's Guide to Nextcloud", which goes through the basics of what @nextcloud is and how to make your own:

growyourown.services/beginners

It's written from the perspective of a non-technical person who just wants to make their own services and doesn't want to use command lines or FTP.

Feel free to share with anyone curious about Nextcloud, and feedback is always welcome of course!

RIVM COVID (non-)respons 

We hebben in Nederland twee heel mooie gezegden:
“Voorkomen is beter dan genezen”
en
“Beter mee verlegen dan om verlegen”

Die zijn blijkbaar nergens meer van toepassing, en al helemaal niet in het openbaar bestuur (waar ze in steen gehouwen zouden moeten staan).

Finally got pi-hole set up on the home network. Looking forward to seeing if it actually reduces ad spam!

Anyone who thinks there is such a thing as the irreversible march of progress is a fool. Things get better because people fight for it. Things stay between because people fight for it. Never, ever give the fascist bastards an inch.

Reader, we had #fireflies in our yard tonight.

They hovered over our plant beds, seeking mates in the dark of our unlit yard. Our neighbors, with plantless yards brightly light with security beacons, had almost none.

It's a tiny thing, but I think it is an example of how individual action, on a small plot of land, can do some good.

I've written an in-depth article aimed at non-technical people who are considering starting their own Mastodon server (and most of it applies to any kind of Fedi server):

growyourown.services/making-yo

It's on my website growyourown.services, which you can follow at @homegrown

Feedback welcome, let me know if there's something that needs fixing/improving. (I'm only writing for non-technical people using managed hosting though.)

"In a decade it will be *known* that #COVID causes severe cognitive impairment & neurodegenerative disease; today millions of us are living it in reality, in our 20s + 30s + 40s, in what was supposed to be the beginning of our lives."

"Help is not coming fast enough. I don't want #LongCovid to be a note in a history textbook […]. I want action *now*. We know enough, *now*, to pour large scale resources into this & to stop it from happening to millions of others."
