In the UK. In a co-working space in Brum playing with Flask. Back to Prague in September, I guess. Needed a break. Didn't expect the UK to be that but it is.

Setting up SMTP and bla bla and wondering for the nth time why I am still with ProtonMail.

#literature, #philosophy, #linux, #opensource, #tech, etc and whatnot :D

boosting appreciated :)

Just rewatched This is England (2006). Clunky in places but it still pretty much nails it for me.

this newyorker article, despite some misconceptions, is actually a good rallying call for independent / communal social Web sites
