hiking from village, . There were plums, wild strawberries, blue berries and in the middle, ice cold pristine spring water. Awesome traditional "slow food" at a restaurant up hill. Soup, plate full of salad, breads, meat balls, blue berry jam and layered pan cake like thing, roasted vegetables. Quantity was too much for a single person. This was a daytrip for . 10 kms hiking. There was a museum at Struzhe.

Tasty traditional food at at North Taste restaurant. I had lemon chicken with rice. So far liking Tirana, clean roads, nice people, tasty food. We got rains today and I had to buy umbrella. Usually I carry one wherever I go, but in most cities it come back unused. Yoghurt, buttermilk and 100% fruit juice without added sugar available in most places (as I can't eat sugar). Water is costly if you buy small bottles, bigger ones are fine.

There's a difference between making something easier to develop and making something lazier to develop.

#Electron falls into the lazy category because it lets you make stuff super quickly, but at the cost of performance, efficiency, nonexistent native UI support, bloated libraries and a myriad of other issues.

A lot of the #internet has become dependent on Cloudflare, so any reliability issues with that will cause catastrophic failures.

People think they need Cloudflare for DDoS protection (it's a digital protection racket), and the DDoS problem exists because data is not sufficiently federated/distributed across servers/peers.

So to fix the reliability of the internet, more redundant data storage is needed. This isn't anything very advanced though. Torrents are redundant storage. Federated posts in the fediverse are redundant storage. Most traditional server systems and walled garden data silos are fragile.
