Guess I'll be trying to compile phosh on my old shitty tablet.

Again.

Nexus 5 is said to perform well under Ubports, but I'm not sure if their repos are suitable for compiling Tootle.

I really don't want to backport it again :blobugh:

So happy to own a bunch of devices that don't support postmarketOS in any usable shape or form :'>

For those contemplating the Librem 5 by @purism, hold your breath competition is about to start. See volla.online

Guess I don't need Christmas lights next year 🎄

I wonder what made the person who designed my computer mouse think it was a good idea to slap some rainbow LEDs on it that you can't turn off or lower their intensity.

Commercial software using closed protocols is the reason we have to juggle a bunch of different apps like Discord, Slack, Hangouts and so on. Closed platforms fundamentally undermine the very spirit of how the internet is meant to work.

food 

some of you don't know this, so hang onto your hats

in Canada, "whole milk" is called "homogenized milk"

(it's more accurate, since "whole" doesn't really imply that it's been emulsified by extrusion through tiny nozzles, but "homogenized" does)

so anyway, you'll never guess how "homogenized milk" gets shortened...

Handy has been a great addition to GTK development on elementary OS. We’ve started using it in some first-party apps, and I’m excited to see what third party apps like this do with it.

RT @subhajasu@twitter.com

@Puri_sm@twitter.com 's Handy library is pretty cool when it comes to making convergent experience. This is kind of what Pebbles may look like in a future version, in the next version of @elementary@twitter.com OS.

Software is awfully, mind-boggingly, infuriatingly broken.

If this is all we're capable of, we're going to die an appropriately horrible nuclear death and we probably deserve it.

I'm done.

Discord is a site running inside Chrome in disguise. Epic Games launcher can't revalidate already installed game files and just add it into your library. Windows Update introduces more bugs than it's supposed to fix. VS can't build my game because of "Error: Operation completed successfully". The damn Notepad refuses to launch. All of these minor inconveniences along with management and architectural decisions truly turn your average user's life into a series of unfortunate events.

Funnily enough, I even had to use the hardware button because the damned Start menu wouldn't open. My laptop might be a bit dated, but baking lightmaps in Unreal Engine seems to be just fine where opening the damn Start menu is too much of a burden to ask for this inconsiderate waste of closed-source code.

No, I don't want your new Edge.

Yes, I really needed that specific video driver version you just updated.

In fact, the last thing I needed is turning my laptop off after your "Check this Super Audio HD Crystal Clear Premium 2020 Audio Equalizer I just installed" notification and a nauseously high-pitched noise from the speakers.

Thanks, I hate it. I wouldn't use Windows if it were truly free.

Windows 10 doesn't hide and, in fact, takes pride in thinking it knows better than you by installing apps and drivers without asking you for a permission. Just as the *missing by default* desktop shortcut says, it's no longer "Your Computer". It's "This PC".
