For anyone who cares: the @gamingonlinux rollout of custom user profile addresses has been finished.
If you didn't know, you can now have your GOL profile be something like /profiles/coolperson instead of /profiles/1221230902304234
Spent like 3 hours trying to improve the selective quoting feature in @gamingonlinux comments.
Turns out switching "mouseup" to "click" was all that was needed to ensure selected text was inside a specific container. As it does both mousedown and mouseup checks <_<
A short clip from the @gamingonlinux co-op podcast episode going live tomorrow, part of a rant on clickbait claiming Windows will move over to using Linux.
*Worth pointing out the Tiny Tiny RSS team have a forum called "Gas Chamber" too. So uh, yeah. Fuck that software.
Had an idea to build a simple "Linux Testing Initiative" tool on @gamingonlinux for game devs.
Thinking on a flow of: users opt-in after reading and agreeing to a few bits -> approved devs then get access to email testing info to everyone who signs up to help test. Thoughts?
I miss the days of the Ubuntu Papercuts project, that had Canonical people go through tons of little issues like that and sort them out constantly. It's part of what made me fall in love with Ubuntu originally.
Anyone used the blackfire profiler on Linux before?
Got it close to working, have the config all setup, but the agent won't launch https://pastebin.com/MkBuHZ9z
Just wanted to say a big THANK YOU to the few people who donated / pledged to @gamingonlinux over the last day. That's been a huge help and really made me personally feel way better.
"Supporting the devs" is not a concept that applies to AAA games. The only people making money off sales are the publisher and executives, not the artists, coders and other staff. Who, as we know, are likely to get laid off regardless of how sales go.
Save that stuff for small studios, they're the ones actually operating at small margins.
We branched out to cover a lot more areas like distros, desktops, followed more open source stuff and so on but it's really mentally testing. I'm feeling 100% demoralised today, when I constantly read about Linux people not giving a shit if anyone even supports Linux now.
