When you have to fight against tab completion trying to be smart:

Fortunately, Mullvad guys somehow managed to make this piece of crap work properly, so instead of vanilla Wireguard app I have to use Mullvad VPN app while I strongly dislike using apps from VPN providers and prefer using vanilla VPN clients. Nice

Wireguard app for Android is just a joke, it''s even unable to import a config file: "File should be either .conf or .zip". I have a .conf file, what's wrong?
Of course, my home network was immedeately blocked after running the tunnel. You can use "Exclude private networks" optiion which adds to allowed networks a couple of dozens of ip ranges which is ridiculous by itself, but what's even more ridiculous, it's still doesn't work. Eventually, I had to uninstall the app.

Well, some downsides now. Wireguards routing capabilities are utterly suck. You can define ip ranges allowed to be reached via a tunnel, that's all. Do you want to exclude some networks, for example your home network? There is no such an option. Of course, I can set up my routes using standard Linux tools, but what am I suppose to do on Android?
So, while OpenVPN is slower, it's much more versatile.

Set up a Wireguard connection to Mullvad VPN. Fuck, it's at least twice as fast as OpenVPN I used till today!
I should have done it earlier.

No one wants to be tracked. But if your business model depends on user tracking, the privacy movement becomes a problem: 9to5mac.com/2021/07/14/faceboo

We, web developers, don't need TypeScript. Java guys, please, keep using your stupid platform and don't come close to us.
JavaScript is a great language and the absence of type checking is its advantage.

The main problem with the "very open technology world" was it begot and nurtured behemoths like Apple.
What's really sad is we didn't have GPL back then.
An old fool.

"We wouldn't have had an Apple had I not grown up in a very open technology world," Mr Wozniak, its co-founder with Steve Jobs in the 1970s, said.
