So Telegram now has ads. But unlike the ads from Google, Facebook or Apple, the ads are not personalized and much more privacy friendly. The ads simply consist of a maximum 160-character message with no external links and are displayed only in large public channels.
Previously, to work on my code server, I always installed Visual Studio Code locally and then accessed the server using the Remote SSH extension. But that no longer seems necessary now that I have code-server installed. Using code-server, Visual Studio Code can be easily used in the browser. Cool project!
