Looking forward to firing up a build server this weekend to add to the flathub.org build brigade.

It's amazing to see how a community is organizing behind Flatpak. We've done a lot of work on it from a bunch of different angles. Contributors from every major distro, desktop, toolkit, etc.

Fantastic, and growing, Safety story, best incremental update I've seen of any platform, and build tooling that makes it easy to build new apps.

And the technology behind it... It's unbelievably well done.

🎶 Spider-Man, Spider-Man
Let's tell his origin story again
It's been what, five years now
Since the last time we milked that cow
Thank God
For your attention span
Your short attention spaaaaaaaaaan 🎶

@garbados I've filed cryptocurrencies in the same bucket as hydroponics, vaping, cell-phone repair, and head shops: there's lilely something useful in there but you have to dig past the dudebros and douchebags in order to find the nuggets of good stuff. And a lot of them are just clueless folks trying to make a quick buck before the bubble fades.

In which Slack and traffic signal replace human interaction, because "hey, you're making too much noise and I'm working" is hard and that cute webscale AWS Lambda function is awesome after all /s: rradczewski.github.io/ymmv/201

Debugging networking isn't anything pleasant but at least it's doable, there is always some unhappy switch or wrong MTU. But WiFi is being left out in the complete darkness with arms and legs tied and a plastic bag on the head. Best Friday ever.

I also suspect that 3DS is secretly optimized for chibi. There cannot be any other reason

Disappointed by Metroid 2 remake announcement. What happened to using awesome 2D sprites instead of shitty 3D models that look like from the first Unity tutorial one can find? This is the problem of lots of 3DS games: Rune Factory 4 or Story Of Seasons also look like final assignment in high school.

I keep clicking boost randomly. Enjoy.

So what is the reason of new users wave this time?

Huge problem with Matrix is that 1) search works worse than on JIRA/Confluence (impossible is nothing) 2) I can't figure out a feasible way of having textual logs without running my own server.

Meanwhile on /r/3ds, someone asks for a game with memorable plot and likeable characters. Beats me how Bravely Default fits there, with story and characters that I have seen at least 10 times since I first played on NES.

Apparently language filtering is a thing now. I'm completely behind what is being added in the new releases.

Either mastodon.social became incredibly popular in Iran or spam is getting serious.

@federicomena the people who seem to *fear* systemd absolutely baffle me.

"It's not the UNIX way" they cry!
"Linux ain't UNIX" I posit them.
"But we've always done it this way" they utter, flabbergasted by the previous point.
"To progress, we must change"
And they chant "But it's monolithic" whilst breaking in to a sweat.
"It's not, look at the source"

"Ha! Binary journal!"

At which point they pull their pants up as high as possible, turn their noses up, and go and start Devuan.

Trying not to break my phone during screen replacing IS HARD.

What Mastodon app do people use on Android nowadays?

Someone has brought up Code of Conduct proposal for Alpine. Funny to see the effort. The best part:

> "Your work sucks" is fine while "you suck" isn't.

Well, no, but I'm nobody of importance anyway, at least according to the author.
