Pinned post

This has to be my favorite @InspiroBot picture. Need to pin it in the profile.

In computers, there is nothing more permanent than a temporary name.

Effective marketing is when you manage to convince people that carbon dioxide counts as “crema”.

I sooooo love it when engineers try to mock designers. You know they believe they are the smart ones when doing so and don’t even realize idiotic they sound.

I just love it when popular podcasts give a platform to people who don't know what they're talking about.

I wrote a blohpost clearing out any confusion around libadwaita and the recoloring api and addressing all the fud spread from people that should have known better.

The idea of "alpha" and "beta" males is an outdated myth based on misinformation. There is not a single reported case of a wolf using the Greek alphabet throughout the entirety of recorded history. It does not reflect how wolves act in the wild.
