Nobody here anymore - From the Album Deja Vu all over again, with John Fogerty singing and playing Guitar, with Mark Knopfler also playing guitar is just... Well, musical pornography almost.

The amount of pleasure those guitars can pour in the human ear is astounding.

So, sometimes software development/engineering can be a bit like exploration.

The analogy being that you set sail knowing, in general terms, what you are looking for but not how to get there, and what form what you seek will end up taking.

It can be fun, but it can also be difficult forming the result into something of quality.

I'm gonna keep posting this until one of you fucking boosts it

Flatpak/FreeDesktop/GNOME/etc. folks: can someone point me in the right direction for discussing a way for Flatpaks to request a system-wide shortcut? E.g. a sandboxed app would request that Super+E launches it, similar to how an app can use the Background portal for startup.

Jeopardy time:

This is one of the most well designed, awe inspiring examples of Open Source software.

The question is of course: "what is ensembles?"

Go download it as a flatpak, or even better, install it from elementary OS and run it there.

Asking for financial help. 

Hey folks, I’m hoping this is the last time I need to ask for help, but right now I need it. I recently got started on ADHD medications and I’m hoping that will help me get on track soon. But in the meantime, I need help.

Job hunting has produced nothing for me, and don’t have much money left. I don’t have enough to pay rent or bills right now. If you can spare it, I would really appreciate if you could help me out.

If you know of any job opportunities, I would also appreciate it if you would DM me.

Paypal: Patreon: GitHub Sponsors (won’t get a payout until November):

If anyone has some programming contract work they need done, please let me know. I have experience with Rust, Python, C, Go, Java, and JavaScript, and I primarily do frontend work. I can create designs if needed.

Just working my way through the elementary OS developer documentation and it’s excellent.

Kudos to @danrabbit, @cassidyjames et al. :)

I am so happy with my k2 keyboard.

I was first looking at the Launch Configurable Keyboard, but sadly finding it too expensive, I decided to do some googleing. And while I'd still have preferred that nice slab of Open Source CNCed aluminium, The keychron does an EXCELLENT job at $107 (that is incl. shipping)

I'd never thought a mechanical keyboard would make THAT much of a difference. But it really does.

I've used elementary OS 6 for a few days now, and I seem to observe a much more responsive/smooth UI than ever before (and it already was pretty good)

I recommend any and everyone to give it a try :)

and I have to ask you: What is the 'git button' in code for?

I have tried using it, and just can't observe any difference. But I fear I may just be missing it.

Also: you know someone made a great app, when you hit the usual shortcut for it, and nothing happens, and you try again and realize: shit! i didn't install it yet.

Then i realize it hasn't been ported :O

I am speaking of course of Ideogram by @cassidyjames

No, this is not meant as a poke to give that attention straight away or anything, but as praise for an app so well written that I just found myself taking it for granted. now THAT is good UX

My thanks goes out to the team, Cassidy, Dan, David (and the rest). I'm on elementary OS 6 now, and I am quite happy with many of the improvements, and then there are certain new ones that will take some getting used to. But Y'all have done a great job.

And yet again, I am happy that you dare go a new way, even with all the criticism out and about with you breaking with old ways of doing things on the Linux

I HATE kitchen weights. You never know if they work or if they are wonky, which is why I almost always use volumes when baking.

Usually doing the cake bit for a layered cake is no problem the evening before hand, but this right here is unreasonably annoying.

A lot of non-designers think of design as something that gets added to your product. But the reality is that your product is always designed. It is an intrinsic property due to creating a product. Not taking care to design well doesn’t stop your product from having been designed

Wanted to share this slide because it's pretty cool. This is all the code you need to have a native, packaged app on elementary OS. 3 Files. About 60 lines. Not including metadata ofc.

If there are any GObject Introspection experts out there, please reach out to me!

Watched the first episode of with the missus last night. It's looking pretty interesting, and I must admit I had a *wow* experience when seeing a certain actor.
