An experimental text-based UI framework for Emacs modeled after React github.com/ebpa/tui.el from @ebanders #JavaScript

The incomparable Andy Steward wrote a new #Emacs extension allowing us to run any #Qt program in Emacs to extend Emacs!? I’m just staring at the screenshots.

I had a weird problem: #Emacs would reliably lock up any time I tried to save a file on a drive mounted over sshfs. Turns out Emacs lock files (weird symlinks that don't point to actual files) where somehow not interpreted correctly over sshfs. Emacs ended up in an infinite loop trying to create and verify the symlink. My solution was to simply disable lock files, like this: (setq create-lockfiles nil). I've never had any use for them anyway 🙂

I thought I'd document this somewhere 😉

The flip side of the exodus is that it will become harder to find out about new software projects since it won't be mostly centralized in a single place. Time to revive a Freshmeat of sorts?

Excellent talk on Teaching Haskell by @cercerilla. If you want to advocate for any programming language, watch this talk. If you want to sell software to a company with extreme NIH, watch this talk. Tech adoption is not about the tech. youtube.com/watch?v=m9rl1UXLxM

Has anybody used export via ox-pandoc that included some images? I could not find out how to do so ...

Thanks for any comment/example!

GIMP 2.10!

Officially put out today, and it's the largest ever release.

GIMP 2.10 is the result of six years of work that originally focused on porting the program to a new image processing engine, GEGL.

The new version ships with far more new features, including new and improved tools, better file formats support, usability improvements, revamped color management support, a plethora of improvements for digital painters.

I'm also versed in using Jupyter to do research into data and trends, and would love more work with that.

For any fellow data nuts out there, I've been loving playing with Visidata this week

Hypercard up and running in basilisk II emulating system 8.

Going to re-acquaint myself with my favorite development tool (for the first time in more than 10 years) so that I can get an entry together for the Hypercard Zine.

Putting together a blog post for sometime this week on how to get it up and running (it's easy!) and then another one on how to use Hypercard (it's also easy!)

emacs friends on the fediverse:
do you know of a package that would cause code comments to automatically align at 80 columns?

Any other compliance publications/guidelines of interest and relevance specifically for #Australia around data security at rest/in motion similar to UK's GPG13/PMO, NIST or US' HIPAA? I have #OAIC's Privacy Act and Australian Signals Directorate - Information Security Manual to start with. Currently doing research on compliance requirements in Australia around data security.

@deadsuperhero @gled It's worth getting some official confirmation but the fediverse does not collect the kinda data GDPR is most concerned about (e.g. real names, addresses, medical records etc etc) and it offers both export and deletion on request already.
