“My Stance on Toxicity About Programming Languages - Xe”

I’ve never understood the view I sometimes hear from Americans that increased customer rights and protections impinge on the freedoms of the company making the product.

Like, I bought the widget. I should be able to do whatever I want with it. Maybe I’m just too European 🤷‍♂️

“Ghost 5.0”

What are people’s impressions of Ghost these days? I seem to recall talk about the software being okay but a few having a bad experience with support?

“The balance has shifted away from SPAs - Read the Tea Leaves”

I’d definitely try this out if I were still a macOS user.
