If you see my Github profile, especially the contribution map, I’m almost active everyday, which is quite deceptive because in fact I’m not active everyday. If you look more closely, you’ll notice I’m more active in my dotfiles repo, which is just something I can’t stop doing, tweaking my setup to be more ProDuCtIvE. While looking at it closely, I think it was a symptom of something, something really big, something I don’t really want to confront, but here I am.

Straight from their main page: “Mastodon is an open source decentralized social network”, so it’s basically the project Bluesky but already implemented (Without the ads yay). More specifically, it’s a bunch of small (compared to the whole thing) independent communities which can interact with each other. You can find more information about Mastodon and how it works in the documentation.
atbswp: Automate The Boring Stuff With Python (yes like the book) is a multi platform, open source clone of tinytask, and for those who don’t know it, the core feature of the software is to allow the users to record their mouse and keyboard actions and reproduce them identically as many times as they want.
