I just want to share this absolute gem of a webpage: Falsehoods Programmers Believe About Names.

These falsehoods are things I run into on a regular basis. The more stress-inducing one on that list was #37. Because of that, I couldn't check into a flight because two systems used two differently mangled versions of my name.

A Karmacoma cover (Great song from Massive Attack). With for only instruments: my scissors, my beer, my voice, Ardour and my computer's microphone.


I made a cover of two songs lyrics by STUPEFLIP rearranged together with some stuff I made with my voice, a pencil, a guitar, my laptop microphone, Ardour and my little hearth ❤️

Mix, sound and precision are awefull : You must be very tolerant.

(My dog is in there at some points because it likes to make some noise when I record some stuff lol)

Here's the harvest of the year in my completely abandoned garden. it managed to survive by itself and to grow things in places where I've never even planted anything. There are still a few little things to harvest. And I got a huge monstruous zucchini !

"Hari’s book [Stolen Focus] opened my eyes to the way #smartphones are wrecking our ability to focus. If every idle moment of our day gets occupied by the smartphone’s content feeds, #socialmedia tidbits, and other news pulling us in, what time do we have for personal thought? For reflection and analysis? For our own directed attention? Very little."

I'm trying to replace my main computer by an energy-efficient, nomad, modulable and recyclable solution. It's long. But I'm slowly getting there !

Almost fluent ....

- "Dad, I really hate Poalows"
- "You hate what ?"
- You know, Poalows ! "Poireaux" in english.

Note: "Poireaux" means "leeks". The child was just prononcing the french word with an english spin thinking that's how french to english translation works 😂

Quentin (4) :
"Dad ! I have a very funny joke !
(you'll see, it's a little craaazy...)
Just imagine .... Before... People, they were MONKEYS ! LOL"

"Weeeell ... actually.."

We had a very fun time with his older brother telling him the truth and showing him evolution illustrations. He wouldn't believe us at first !

Hey Fedi, do you know if there is a federated (perhaps even #ActivityPub-powered) cooking recipe hosting service? If not, let's 👏 make 👏 this 👏 happen!

I hate modern recipe websites. All of them are full with ads and tracking. The leading recipe hosting in my country loads over 30 different trackers, and that's excluding the ads!

My PR just got merged into master. (so prooooud!)
