The Runner: Why you should try self-hosting and de-Google your life?

Big American tech companies know way too much about us and are too intertwined with our personal lives, but they don’t have to be. Read more below!

How to use a postgres array in Fizz with Go Buffalo:

The below example is a string array.

1. In your fizz file use []string as your type

2. In your model file, import ""

3. In your model file, in the struct, use slices.String as your type

Hallelujah! After 2 days of trying off-and-on, I got Go Buffalo to talk to my Postgres database.

Now, with that out of the way, time to look into displaying the data back to the user in something other than JSON.

Hiding scrollbars is never the right design choice.

To kick off summer, and my time here on Mastodon, here's a song I made few years back with a group of people from reddit. It's got a lofi, summer vibe to it.

It was a bit of a fight, but I replaced Pi-Hole with AdGuard Home yesterday.

In 24 hours, 25,784 DNS queries with 3,120 blocked by filters.

The amount of tracking and ad serving happening in a regular day is both mind boggling and disheartening.

Howdy everyone. I'm tgpo, a computer programmer that's looking to move away from my current internet corporate overlords, and I figured replacing twitter was a good first(ish) step.
