I seriously condemn websites that change the font smoothing of blocks of text in their CSS styles. I seriously hate
-moz-osx-font-smoothing and I strongly believe that the world would be better if those goddamn’d properties didn’t exist. Ye, I understand that subpixel antialiasing doesn’t make sense on high DPI screens and that HDPI screens are usually better with grayscale scaling. But most websites change the aliasing in awful ways. Why can’t you apply a media query to only change the font smoothing on bigger displays? On my non-HDPI 1080p Dell display, grayscale antialiasing makes me want to rip off my eyes.
This year, I want to make danirod.es my main online identity and stop relying so much on social networks for hosting my content, such as my photos or my status updates. This will not change the use I make of social networks, so if you follow me on social networks, not much will be noticeable. This blog post will help me control the list of changes and features I’ll add to my website through the year in order to make it open, federated, and independent.
Este año, quiero convertir danirod.es en mi principal identidad online y dejar de depender tanto de las redes sociales para alojar mi contenido, como fotos o actualizaciones de estado. Esto no cambiará el uso que hago de las redes sociales, así que si me sigues en una red social, no vas a notar demasiados cambios. Esta entrada de blog me ayudará a documentar la lista de cambios y características que voy a implementar en mi página web a lo largo de este año para volverla abierta, federada e independiente.
My blog syndicates its new contents through an Atom feed so that people can subscribe to updates. And according to the server logs, people use them (that was the initial point of having them; so, thanks!). However, it wasn’t until recently that I actually read the standard and a few other online sources, when I discovered that a few things, such as the entry identifiers, have been done wrong all this time. I’m documenting these issues publicly in order to save for future reference.
Here is another quick one that is also easy to forget. One of the many uses of SSH is local and remote port forwarding. Using local port forwarding, you can set up a socket between a port in your local machine and your SSH server. Whenever a communication is established on that local port, it will be forwarded to the server and then, made. This has some interesting use cases, such as connecting to local services (web administration panels, databases…) or acting as a jump server or just a proxy server.
Rustup recently reached v1.0.0. Rustup is a toolchain installer and manager, allowing to install multiple toolchains: stable, beta, nightly, or a particular version. It is very easy and convenient instead of other solutions that rely on manually installing packages. It just became a core project of Rust as well. The download page at Rust website has been updated to reflect this. In fact, Multirust, a similar project for managing multiple Rust installations, is now deprecated.
