Hi! I'm a Polish comedian but due to my country being so grim unfortunately I am not able to tell any funny jokes. Please be so kind to google one funny joke yourself and then forward it to your friends. Thanks for your cooperation!

Buying a cheap Android phone in 2010s: it's so slow it barely runs those two critical apps I need.

Buying a cheap Android phone in 2020s: its battery optimization is so aggressive it eventually kills those two critical apps I need regardless of my settings.

Some sources point to today being the MS-DOS 5 release date, so happy 30th birthday to EDIT.COM, QBasic, HIMEM.SYS, Nibbles, Gorillas, DOS Shell, and DOS=HIGH, UMB! ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‚๐ŸŽˆ๐Ÿฅ‚

If anyone is on MeWe and would like to put their content on my wall while I stil have single-digit contact list, invite me or something. mewe.com/i/lukemnet

This is the weirdest beer I've had for a while. Made in Poland but inspired by Berliner weisse. Has a label showing one of Warsaw bridges but the brewery isn't located in Warsaw. And finally, it has strong strawberry taste but it's sour.

Story of my life, sort of.

Sometimes it's weeks when I don't check fedi and when I finally do, I spend hours on it.

Aaaaand upgraded my Masto instance to v3.4.x. Some magic was involved but it works.

Okay, I can't upgrade Mastodon to v3.4.x. I gets stuck with no error message while installing cld3, on 'building native extensions'.

Maybe that's a penalty for starting this kind of operation late at night instead of going to sleep.

After more than a year I finally hit 'Deploy' and my blog is online.

I still have plenty of drafts to finish and I'd like to get a few new features done.

But hey, here's a plain ol' weblog in 2021. How often does it happen?

In 2020, when we switched to perma-work-from-home mode for good, I marked the last date I was in the office in my calendar.

Today I was in the office for the firs time since then. The date marked was 10th September 2020.

Somewhat surreal.

So uhm, Visual Studio 2019 Community comes with built-in support for Nuget package manager.

Except I had to manually add api.nuget.org/v3/index.json as a package source in order for a C# project to compile.

Like, why, Microsoft?

It's like downloading Microsoft Paint and having to download color palette separately.

"Investors" and all the others who say "start investing in Bitcoin" in 2021...

When I was collecting my first satoshis in mid 2010s I thought I was already late to the party. Meanwhile none of you douchebags at that time could spell 'crypto' correctly.

Scammy idiots.

I had no idea setting up a Twitch stream from a console was this complicated.

It's nearly impossible to get it right without tons of troubleshoooting and even then there's still a lot of magic behind different settings.

All I wanted was to play an old Mario game on my Nintendo Switch.

Okay, this post-vaccine day was super rough.

First vaccine shot done. No side effects. Next shot at the end of July.

I have particular talent to breaking cheap Chinese microphone stands. Time to buy a solid one I guess.

Aaaaand we have a vaccine appointment. Tomorrow.

I don't always read spam mails but when I do, they're entertaining. I didn't know I had a new cool first name.
