I see everyone's getting excited about the men's football again.

We've got a new Tor Browser alpha, and we need your help to test it!

Tor Browser 8.0a9 has a lot of new features, including a couple major UX changes, and we want them to be in tip-top shape before the stable release hits this September. blog.torproject.org/new-releas

Weird font recognition moment: @VollkornFont on @troyhunt 's blog youtube.com/watch?v=PsjNoXGoJ1. I clearly need to start using it more 🙂

The libinput debug docs and visual explanations of what's going on with different kinds of clickpad and finger modes are really good wayland.freedesktop.org/libinp

The wiki docs are also pretty awesome when dealing with weirdness

Gritting my teeth and trying out again so I can get some bugs fixed. Still lots of touchpad quirks, but stuff looks as if it might just behave itself now.

My ward's vote is split ☹ @TonyBrett [birdsite] is a gentleman and a colleague for sure, but from the numbers alone the better candidate there is the Green.

Hopefully the independent will stay out. Once a Tory…

A hooman wearing only a pair of improvised shorts (made of materials found in some forest) and wielding a stick appears! There is a field of roses behind which stands a giant boulder with a shining ray of red light coming out of (or coming into??) the top of the boulder.
