@mikelynch Good to hear you're okay, take care of yourself!

I have some important pre-bed Beanie content for you all.

re: p2p, hypercore and activitypub 

my big take on activitypub clients lately is that it's ridiculous to insist on "we only support these activities because we are a twitter clone AND NOTHING ELSE" like instead a client should focus on fostering and accessing an ecosystem of type support plugins. otherwise you go down this scope-denying rabbithole that only reinforces the power of the denying cadre. users should have broad capabilities to customize their own client, and to distribute customized clients.

look: i know scope-creep is bad news, but i want you to think hard about what it has done for facebook.

@liamvhogan @stibbons Yeah it's kind of shocking how much heat comes out of it.

@mike Hah, I have _absolutely_ done that. Which bit of software was it in your case?

@stibbons @liamvhogan Haha wow. TIL! But yeah, still got a Mac in the pipeline there somewhere though. :)

@liamvhogan Pretty sure you've got zero chance of that one, haha.

Hey yeah thanks I guess I have a question - well, it's more of a comment. Actually I suppose it's more of a statement. Now that I think about it, it's kind of a speech. Actually it's a short story. Alright it's a novel. Here is the first draft of my novel

Covid-19 test (results sorta?) 

@drbuttocks Just wow.

@nolan I tried WebStorm a handful of years ago, before I was using TypeScript, and it just felt _really_ bloated and slow and overkill for what I was doing.

Granted I'm not any sort of professional developer, just strictly hobbyist, but VS Code and TypeScript has been wonderful for me. :)
