10 years of my band Hoggatah http://hoggatah.se which started in 2009 with some people from a different band and me joining. There are not many bands which can look back on such a long history.
Today an article in the local newspaper was published where they interview us about the past and the future.
I like Signal, it does almost everything I need it to do as a messenger app with the exception of handling those short videos you send each other within a family group. Be it because your children did something funny, greetings on Christmas or to show off you progress when learning the saxophone.
Yes you can prerecord and send it as an attachment, but then most of the time the video file size is too big and you need another app to make it smaller, and then...

We don't only have the sea in Varberg but also lakes. One such small one is called 'The Black Sea' for some reason and there it is where I'm training ro be able to run longer distances again.

2. Just because they're mega competent in one field doesn't make them automatically competent in other fields
Today I unfollowed a leftist queer woman. Mostly just to not accidentally toot in her direction because she wrote "men, don't ever toot at me".
I think marxists and communists need to fight and take the word "left" back under controll. Nowadays it's more a swearword than describing a ideology where proletarians fight for their rights against the bourgeoisie.
I leand speaking English at work, because I work in IT and we only have international teams so the only way to communicate is in English.

Instead, it's a couple of white kids sending an "other" back to where they came from.
E.T. Go Home.

A cool thing #GitLab being a rails app is that sometimes when I need to change something for a lot of say users, I can do open heart surgery and use the rails console and rails ORM to do bulk changes on the database without writing special scripts and using the API to do one off things.
It's really dangerous doing that with 600 users using it, but that's part of the fun and we have backups ;)
