There should be a browser plugin that automatically turns infinite scroll into regular paging 😜

I wonder why infinite scrolling is being in such wide use these days. IMHO, it's harder to implement properly than paging and it's much less user-friendly. Does infinite scrolling have any purpose, except maybe making social media more addictive (and thus lucrative) by removing that last bit of friction and visual indication of progress/time spent? If not, why are more and more sites applying this anti-pattern - is it cargo cult programming?

I am happy to announce that, as of October 1st, I will be joining the Munich-based company Golane as a software developer to help build and improve their public transport ticketing solution. 🙂

The Framework laptop is the first laptop to ever score a 10/10 from Ifixit for repairability. But it's no thick-as-a-brick throwback the size of a 2005 Thinkpad - it's approximately the same dimensions as a MacBook.


Out now: ./badges v2.0.0 - A major release with support for parameter declaration and validation (good for building GUIs), improved CLI with stdin/-out support and revised API for use as a library, plus numerous bug fixes. Get it on @codeberg at

Spare part arrived, soldered it back in.
Now comes reassembly, followed by intense praying and tooth-grinding 😜

I caused quite a bit of damage to the board though, before figuring out how to properly desolder...

Zeige Konversation

A clean soldering tip, adding lots of regular lead-based solder, lots of heat and quick application of the desoldering pump did the trick :-) Once that was figured out, desoldering proceeded very quickly 🥳 Thanks for your advise @nause_marc and @wex !

I don't know what I'm doing wrong, but I'm having little to no success with at all. I can't get the solder on the board to melt. My own solder melts just fine. Tried it at higher temperatures (400-450°C) too. Maybe the tip of the iron is too large to be able to reach the very small pads? All I managed is getting off one of the potentiometers, with lots of patience, solder wick and quite a bit of force. At this point, I'm afraid I all but butchered that board 🙈

Disassembling my Xbox controller to replace a faulty joystick. Surprisingly easy to disassemble so far, if we don't count the exotic case screws. Next comes desoldering and then ordering the right spare part.

Aren't you tired from writing your Rust programs in English? Would you like to try something different, exotic and funny? Do you like saying "merde" a lot?

Here's my contribution to solve this problem: Rouille, a French Rust programming language.

Found some time to continue working on ./badges web v2.
In the current snapshot version, it is now possible to edit theme parameters! 🤩
Release coming soon, after some more cleanup and documentation.

Is it just my perception or have "you have to create an account to continue reading"-style nag screens become more widespread recently?
