Hi, I'm Derick.

I work on PHP as part of the PHP Foundation.
I am the author of https://phpc.social/@Xdebug.

I like #walking, #languages, #photography, #astronomy, and #space, and will post about these topics alongside #PHP.

And that was that 😭

Thankful that this afternoon’s storm was short & sharp, leaving a crisp clear evening for this evening’s final 37km ride ⛈️🌞👍

Thankful also to the good people of The Netherlands, their fantastic cycling infrastructure, & the often beautiful landscape it crosses 🥰

I’ve ridden >97,000km here in the past 12 years, >3,500 hours in the saddle, & it has been vital to my physical & mental health – dank jullie wel 💪🧠🙇‍♂️

TIL; RedCross only does "Double Red" for Rh- and O+. 'cause rejection factors, obv.

Either way, More meat for the machine.

@saramg Still sounds better than the guy over in the cot next to me where the needle fell out and there was blood spurting all over the place.

@saramg not sticky enough sticky tape. Nobody hurt, and nobody screaming. Just lots of apologising.

So the question is: will my delayed Air Dolomiti flight to Frankfurt get there in time for my connecting flight to Berlin

@Synchro Not me this time.

This is not the colour a beer should have. It was remarkably tasty though.

@chaos0815 wouldn't it have to be green for that?

@tops Thanks, but I only accept these when I've had a pint with people physically.

@m1ke They're pretty good for sours!

Fully switched to my Fairphone after @phpday 2024, and it feels like a good phone without Android bloatware (looking at you, Samsung, Google, etc.).

A bit big, but it runs as it should, and I feel better knowing that I'll be able to replace any part of it in very few minutes, if it breaks.

The fairbuds headphones feel amazing too: better than my old Sony WF-1000XM3, for which I had even custom silicone plugs made. Also there, the Sony ones failed due to batteries dying, while here I change 'em

@derickr@phpc.social avatar

@thomastospace @ocramius @phpday I've had my Fairphone 5 since November, and zero regrets. Might not be the fastest in class, but I don't game on it or other bs like that.

@thomastospace @ocramius @phpday Even if it only lasts five years, it's still better than the competition.

@derickr@phpc.social avatar

@thomastospace @ocramius @phpday I found a way how to remove it. By disabling the Google app in Settings > Apps, and then rebooting the phone.

@derickr@phpc.social avatar

@thomastospace @ocramius @phpday can't use the space?

derickr,
@derickr@phpc.social avatar

@thomastospace Ah yeah. Still better than the Google shite though.

🆕 blog! “Book Review: Understanding Privacy - Heather Burns”
★★★★★

Heather Burns has an absolutely deft way of turning the sometimes-dull world of digital privacy into entertaining, informative, and actionable prose. Too many of these sorts of books end up being a list of woes and end with "someone should do something, I guess?". Understanding Privacy is different. A…

@Edent Yes. This is an excellent book. I specifically liked the contrasts between EU and US approaches. Must read for anybody doing anything with customer data.

Has anyone developed a good system for managing their web usage and hobbies?

I've got this e-ink screen I'm trying to do something with. When I'm working on it I end up with like 10 different tabs open, between docs pages, open source projects, spec sheets, etc. Then I go back to work on Monday and close them all.

It's not that I need to bookmark the relevant sites, it's that I wish I also had some contained browser history just for working on this.

@derickr@phpc.social avatar

@preinheimer I use different profiles in Firefox. And you can have them open at the same time too. I have one for Presentations for example (clean without history, only for demos and slides), and one for Banking, where I have no extensions installed, besides my "normal" one. You can start the profile editor with "firefox -P".

Logitech G Pro X Superlight 2 in Windows: flawless. Absolutely perfect.

@JamesBaker Is that a good thing, or a bad thing for privacy and digital rights loving people?

This is such a bullshit anti-pattern.

It's a ducking keyboard app. And it keeps popping up until I pick one. Guilting me into clicking "Yes".

@gpunktschmitz @elfin Funnily, they took the time to reply to my 1 star review.
