I’m a dad πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘§, husband πŸ‘« and a software creator πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’»

I create apps for the web & handhelds. Strongly opinionated.

I love these articles that say some dude in a fake suit and a fake tie "demands" that a social network app be removed from the two "Empires". OK, how about homegrown "big" social networks at the same time please too? Just do everyone the favour. Thank you. Pssst, nobody cares.

Oh you mean this bug Apple? One thing I cannot stand is this notion of "Safety". It's my damn computer. Let me set a "developer" mode and leave me alone with this garbage. I loved Snow Leopard (it wasn't that long ago) – no stupid pop ups like this. Sigh.

There were a few issues with the new Gluon feeds, for the TestFlight app (and also current ones). Which meant slow updates. Hope to have that resolved now after a few days of making a change in Bunny (was caching related).

Really appreciating the extra minutes of sunshine/brightness. Already a huge difference from a few weeks ago.

Trying to reply to an email without getting emotional...

OK, Android is building again for Micro.blog. Funny enough, the last time it built without issue was back in January, and then I upgraded React Native on iOS. Oh well. Should have seen that coming. There were a lot of changes to config files that I had to manually comb through...

🥳 Patience and persistence is the key. Micro.blog app for Android building again.

🀬 Gradle build failed...

Also not trying to break anything on the iOS side as I work on the Android side of things. "Building"... if it works, I can rip apart the Android project. "498" warnings πŸ˜…

Kiddo finally in bed. Tea is ready. Time to fix the Micro.blog app for Android.

My only pet peeve is that I'm put off creating a new "also works on Apple" devices app is that I have to get past App Store Review. They do not qualify in my book as... "switched on" human beans.

Seen some comments on the lack of Mastodon clients for Android as of late. In December I was planning something cross-platform (not just "Apple" cross platform), based on the work I did on Gluon. Last week I registered the domain name. Now I just need time.

Still waiting for the kiddo to head to bed. Can't have undisturbed coding time otherwise... and it's what I need.

I'm at this stage where I think I'm OK to add a little bit more megabytes to an app, with just random stuff like icons... because when is the last time you streamed a 4K movie? A lot of peeps complain, but then look at that nice juicy big music library of one song at high def.

Forgot to buy marshmallows. Damn. So much for dessert. 🔥
