In honor of the release of version 0.4.20-beta of the @ubports Installer, i kindly request you include your favorite weed joke in your bug reports. github.com/ubports/ubports-ins

Been on a roll these last few days with small fixes to long-standing issues and implementing some things often requested by new porters. More to come, but for now this fixes some OEM-unlocking issues, improves detection, and adds a new fastboot:format step to the config format. Also migrated the to the core20 base.

That's not to say that what twitter is doing isn't working for them, i find twitter much more addictive than mastodon. But it does bury a lot of stuff that's actually interesting, because "the algorithm" (tm) determined that other stuff would get more engagement.

It's interesting to see the difference in interaction between posts on twitter and mastodon. With twitters interest-determination fuckery, it just seems to not show some of my tweets to anyone while some others receive more attention. If i post the same stuff on mastodon, everything gets more or less the same attention.

It took me a while to warm up to the new GitHub notifications, but they're actually not half bad! Much better not to have stuff disappearing just because you opened and "read" it once is actually rather nice!

Some @ubports servers are apparently blocked by the great firewall. While we *could* implement a local workaround, I'd prefer to look at it as an upstream issue. So... Who do i talk to about overthrowing dictatorial regimes? Is the still accepting audience requests? /s

You gotta love an appropriately named piece of software:

ACRONYM: Acronym CReatiON for You and Me

arxiv.org/abs/1903.12180

Also, that last example acronym must really hit home with the target audience: "TENURE ThE loNg name of yoUr very fancy pRojEct"

How utterly fucked up does one have to be in the head to believe that being allowed to say racist shit without being criticized is , but leaving your war-torn country where you're literally tortured and killed for speaking your mind isn't.

Which stage of grief is passive-aggressive git commit messages?
