BeOS had all sorts of useful APIs. We need to go back

Another quick question for people who speak and write in languages other than English: Do you get upset when people use translation software to reply to your posts if they are not native speakers/writers? Why or why not?

If y'all could boost this post so that I can get more responses from people who speak/write English and at least one other language, that would be great! #CommunityDevelopment

The mobile phone signal inside this Faraday cage is abysmal. Where can I complain?

I keep realizing that younger me always goes for the low cohesion, strongly coupled short cut. Younger me is an idiot.

@liw @embyr If this is helping as many people as it appears to be, having something like this as an option in some of our most widely used (and basically required these days) pieces of software would be wonderful to see. I make liberal use of font size and contrast changes when it's available to me, and this sounds like a welcome addition to those options.

A nice intro to #Subplot by @liw: youtube.com/watch?v=0bDLLK59Qc (slides at pilvi.pieni.net/s/p7mKomTzJ3c2) It's just 14 minutes (and 10 more for Q&A), but it gives a good overview of what the tool is all about (and where Cucumber falls short).

It also appears that #Rustlang bindings went a long way since I last looked at them, which is quite cool! It's nice to have a typesafe language for the bits that aren't auto-generated.

Re-publicizing this post because friends are giving talks soon that I want to read!

As a side product of working on a general-purpose OpenPGP card client library (gitlab.com/hkos/openpgp-card), I've made container images of three Free Software OpenPGP card implementations for easy use in container environments (like CI systems), for automated testing of any software that interacts with OpenPGP cards: gitlab.com/hkos/openpgp-card-i

I've had buyer's remorse after buying a paper notebook or a pen. I can't even begin to imagine what buyer's remorse feels like after committing to buying a 44 billion dollar company.

Dear open source users,

If the author of your favorite open source app has announced they stopped developing and supporting the app (because they're frustrated and possibly burned out), please don't suggest they do more free work so that you can continue using the app.
Instead, consider thanking them for their past work and let them know that you enjoyed their app.

Regards,
another open source developer

Tämä uutinen pistää oikeasti vihaksi.

Pyöräilijä törmäsi pimeässä alikulussa betoniporsaaseen ja kuoli.

Kaupungin tekninen johtaja ei osaa sanoa, mikä on kaupungin vastuu.

Kaupunki laittoi porsaan alikulkuun - estääkseen autoilua.
Kaupunki sammutti alikulusta valot.

Tekninen johtaja harmittelee haasteellista alamäkeä. Jos kaupunki ei sitä rakentanut niin oletettavasti ainakin pahensi tuuttaamalla pyöräilijät alikulkuun.

@EU_Commission I enjoy being a free citizen of a working democracy. I don't need Orwellian surveillance to be kept under control!

@EU_Commission I'm a huge fan of the EU, but with #chatcontrol you are proposing a big pile of dangerous garbage.

So let's not go ahead with that, okay? :)
