@IceWolf @yogthos I have nothing against either of the ways of doing it, but you certainly understand that the majority of people will always choose convenience (streaming, for example) and lower price, even if in the long-term it's a higher price, over inconvenience (buying dvds, I guess? I dont even have a cd rom in my computer tho) and paying bigger buck up front for something you may only use once, right?

Listen, I can't explain exactly why, but Javascript ain't so bad.

Bought a car yesterday. Well, a mopedcar. I still call it a car. It has four wheels. Drives in traffic. A car.

Did quite a bit of React.js over the weekend and, honestly, I love it. Let's see if this honeymoon period will last or not, because if it will - there certainly is a React team in the company I work for.

Back from BCN - took a week off internet. Felt good. Now let's get back into it.

I'll be in Barcelona from tomorrow until the 5th of October, so if you're in town, hit me up!

@BrokenBiscuit It's for the (still not released) iOS version.

@shadowfacts @alicerunsonfedora Haha, but I'm with @alicerunsonfedora, I also just wanted a stable version (that would support SwiftUI).

Now that Xcode's out of beta, trying to download the latest release on my Mac.

I'm currently just doing a setInterval in the WebView. That's why it won't work on the background thread, but I figure I can set the notifications in a cache file, then do the interval in Swift instead.

Now I'm thinking why I did not do that in the first place.

Well, I _basically_ got push notifications working in Ivory now. Except that they don't work if the app is in the background and tapping on them only opens the app and not the notification itself.

Still, progress.

@gabek just make sure they don’t use Microsoft Teams. We use that at work and it makes me miss Slack.

@fribbledom Especially helpful would be to get Mastodon popular enough to be a worthy addition to the million social media icon sets out there (for example Font Awesome has Mastodon support: fontawesome.com/icons/mastodon)

I did not do anything productive over the weekend and honestly it was the best weekend in a while!

@gabek yeah that single thing makes me also want to buy a Apple Watch. That and that I have recently started working out.
