Linux kernel continues to use GPLv2 because of the TiVoisation loophole, suddenly upset other people start using similar licensing loopholes against them.

Ugh, if anybody can find the reason why this doesn't work (it appears as purple and M-x customize-face thinks the face is font-lock-constant-face), I'd be most grateful. rn I'll go stuff my face and maybe have my afternoon meds. pastebin.com/6Q1g7V54

I'm sure that makes sense to somebody who isn't in the midst of a full blown panic attack re torts because all I wanted was my \case{} custom command to italic but my italic actually isn't working by default so :/ gnu.org/software/auctex/manual

My piece on Eudora has exposed a pretty sizable community of folks who are still using the client. See comments: t.co/JVueoSha2J

I actually uploaded it as a gist, because one of my uni friends wanted it and I felt bad for not meeting with him today - gist.github.com/PinkCathodeCat

Yay, it seems to be working. After stressful.

No form id, no submit button id and it won't auto-fill on wallaby.vu.edu.au:2048 -- I'm a very bad programmer and computers are hard.

(I'm fixing my uni script for logging into e-resources so it works on more pages than just one type -- the coding is bad on all of them and saved passwords do not pick up correctly as the uni have set the type as `password' for a username)

So, perhaps I'm an idiot--but why isn't there a getelementsbytype in ?

Installed on a VM out of pure curiosity - to be fair the bridged networking worked out of the box which I struggled with on a Debian VM; but if I am to use this I guess I have to learn a whole new bunch of commands (and it downloaded a x server but doesn't activate it, I guess you still normally use this with commandline?)

Any #FreeBSD folks here can explain why this distro is good and what its best used for (networking stuff or even embedded maybe?)
