hi everyone. just a heads up that I'm migrating mastodon instances and will be posting from @vesto from now on. come follow me there if you'd like to keep up with my shenanigans!

not a ton of stuff up just yet, but I'm planning on adding pages for things like restaurants I like/recommend in nyc, more good internet links, and some vegan recipes I've been cooking lately.

nyc is dark, sad, and very much in pandemic mode again. this wiki is where im trying to pour my effort in order to keep myself distracted until my next semester of grad school starts.

ok still very much so a work in progress but I added a wiki section to my website! stevegattuso.me/wiki

re: the drew's discord article: for a while I was on the matrix bandwagon, convinced that all of these nifty bridges and interfaces were going to save us from chat protocol hell. after a few weeks of using it I more or less came to the conclusion that the clients are wayy too complicated/bloated for even technical users. it was disappointing, but I'm starting to discover irc again and honestly I think it's good enough with the exception of the lack of mobile client.

hey @rek found a super minor typo on grimgrains.com/site/crackers.h - I think "Sometimes we make crackers that are 100& spelt flour" should have a % instead of an &. otherwise ty for the great recipe!!

ok grad school made me write a blog post and I finally just hit submit on the assignment. feast your eyes on this!


Hastily written, but we had a reading in my history/theory of planning class that I think is really applicable to tech and I wanted to get something down before I move onto the next thing:

If you use #GMail, #Google keeps records of everything you buy, even if you delete the email receipt, and even if you didn't buy the product from them. Here's metadata from my takeout showing price, delivery address, description, vendor, etc. #privacy
