The last few days I‘ve been working on creating an iOS app for my website so I can publish easier when on mobile. While SwiftUI and it‘s tooling is still bugged it also made development much, much easier and less complex. I indeed enjoy the experience.
SwiftUI is not quite ready for prime time… everything is still rough, a lot of pieces are missing, things are bugged, documentation is… suboptimal.
Ok, seriously: why is it always old, white men being the biggest assholes on earth? When I was shopping this morning there was an old, white man standing directly in the entrance. When I politely asked him to step back so I could leave the building without getting to near to him he barely stepped back and laughed at me. Oh, and of course he wasn't wearing a mask. I called him an asshole and he screamed after me, telling me how this is all a hoax and I'm an idiot for believing it.
We do this social distancing and mask wearing shit mostly for people like him: old, overweight, male, probably high blood pressure - that's a whole lot of risk factors for dying because of COVID-19. I am still angry about this.
How is that simple? We failed for *years* implementing something like this. The closest we got to this is with GNOME keychain, but it still doesn‘t get it completely right...
I get why Canonical hypes Snaps that much. But seriously, why do they have to be so fucking slow to start? A simple application I already use for ages, Hexchat, now takes more than 20 seconds to start. It feels like being back on spinning disks again, and worse, even slower.
„Die Zerstörung der Presse“ – Ich finde den Stil zwar anstrengend (bin vermutlich einfach zu alt), aber er hat Recht. Viele Kritik-Punkte gehen mir auch schon seit Jahren gegen den Strich. Danke, Rezo.
