Calculation - Solitaire Online

www.eklhad.net/calculation.html

Play solitaire online - a game of strategy and skill.

I've never played this variant of Solitaire before. One would need to know the rules before playing: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calculation_(card_game)

I had to consult the layout quite often. The interface is not what one might be used to. It is fun though.

It took me 6 attempts to win. I had fun.

IndiePass

A Social Feed Reader for the IndieWeb

The Mac version simply didn't run. I installed the Android version. On first run it showed a quick error which I did not understand. I wanted to see how my Betula, which emits h-feed and h-entry microformats, would look like in this app. Turns out, when it talked about IndieWeb, it talked about MicroSub, not microformats2. What a liar!

I tried to authorize to https://merveilles.town, after all it supports Mastodon too! It failed to authorize me.

Overall, I couldn't do anything at all with the app. Sharing it nevertheless.

A Quarter Century of Web Coding | datagubbe.se

www.datagubbe.se/25years

I both pity and admire beginner web coders of today. Unlike me, they've not been able to accumulate gradual knowledge of HTTP, HTML, REST, JavaScript, the DOM, CSS, AJAX, JSON, asynchronous execution and event driven object oriented programming over a period of decades. They haven't walked the long path from CGI scripts to modern server side tomfoolery via PHP, ASP and various MVC frameworks. They're just brutally thrust into a complex world of Gulp, Grunt, TypeScript, React Hooks and MobX-State-Tree and it's assumed they somehow already know about all that other stuff. Computer Science has moved into the frontend in earnest and yet it still seems as if many view "web development" as "making homepages", and that it's something you can learn over a period of weeks, not years.

In retrospect, web development has always been a bit of a struggle against the powers that be.
Some things that were pretty bad for quite a long time have gotten better. But, on the whole, I dare say it's much worse now than when I started. Much like how Commodore 64 programmers could keep a map of the entire computer in their head, a moderately competent developer could churn out an acceptable web site in a matter of weeks, understand every single aspect of it and get paid in the process. If I, a quarter century ago, had possessed the experience and knowledge I do now, the simplicity of those early web pages would've felt surreal. And yet, we apparently provided a service that was of some value to some people. A digital commodity, nothing more, nothing less. Actually useful software.

you probably don't need a linux phone with a hardware keyboard

astrra.space/home/blog/keyboards

however, after having access to all three for more than two months now, i've really struggled to find situations where having those phones (or some similar hardware with modern internals) was actually useful. i regularly found myself reaching for my smartphone after being tired of typing out a long message on the tiny hardware keys, my thumbs hurting from the amount of force i had to apply to press them. i typed slower (even though i was touch-typing), i had more typos, and the typing experience in general was just worse. not to mention that all of the 3 phones had very different keyboards with different key sizes, different actuation forces, and different layouts. they all sucked.

i think that trying to converge the laptop/desktop and the smartphone into one device is a bad idea. the two have very different use-cases, different ergonomics, and different security models. i think that the best way to go is to have a smartphone and a laptop, and use them both for what they're good at. i also think that more people should learn to write mobile apps, as most of my discussions on this topic have boiled down to "i want a linux phone because i can only write desktop apps", which is kinda sad in my opinion.
