Howdy!

This month has been a normal one. I did not have many things to do so I pretty much started working on organizing my stuff at home, so my room is not a mess.

Apart from that, the most important thing that happened this month is the announcement of Drew DeVault closing his Mastodon instance, cmpwn.com forever (I do not know if he is going to be in another Pleroma/Mastodon instance). I have an account there because I could not follow him from my old mastodon.social instance, and he offered me one without hesitate. So, from here, I want to thank him for the time in the cmpwn instance!

Due to the closing of his instance, I migrated to a new one, property of Amolith. The new one is hosted at the NixNet Services offered by him. I barely exchanged words with him, but the few times I talked with him he is an amazing person, so follow him at his account. By the way, my new Fedi account is captainepoch@nixnet.social. My old account is already locked and pointing to the new one, and soon to be deleted. I might open all my toots from somewhere in the future, as an archive, I do not know.

Apart from that, I wanted to do a bit of stuff with Go, and one of the things I wanted to make is to have local packages (like Java and Python). I know Go is not designed to work like that, but in fact, it is possible to make them. I somehow figured how with the help of lyntsune, and I might write how it works (Go devs: I know Go is not designed for that, but sometimes, people do not want to have a few Open Source projects, and the $GOPATH way to work is a damn mess).

I will see you in the next status update!
