libre office is really bad. it's full of bugs and I even asked for a fix to something to make it work better and i was just told that's how it is and you should do it the long way.

developers like that are retarded. if you make a GUI program you must make it easy to use, not "that's how it is, deal with it"

"make your own", yeah I wish i had time. word processors are stupid anyway. use latex

Support for “content extensions” (a.k.a. native content filtering/blocking) has just landed in the GTK and WPE ports. It has been a long ride, but all the iterative improvements and code reviews was worth it, and the new public API looks much nicer than my initial proposals. Thanks to everybody who helped out! → trac.webkit.org/changeset/2417

The new feature will be available in version 2.24.x, to be released soon 🙌

Before the rise of industry, it was normal for people to sleep in two phases each night.

People had no set bedtimes. Sleeping was determined by whether or not there were things to do. Most people would have a first and second sleep, with a couple of hours awake inbetween. This is probably the way humans are supposed to sleep.

Modern schedules don't really let us do that. Perhaps we should think about changing that.

Hi all! I’m new to Mastodon so here’s my first go at an #introductions post.

I’m a second year computer science student in Glasgow, Scotland. I’ve been using Linux exclusively for about 6 years and want to enter the #FreeSoftware community to contribute to cool projects. Because much of my coursework requires using proprietary software, I’m interested in projects aimed at making free software choices more practical for institutions as well as average users.
