Pinned toot

As I've had a few new followers, by way of :

- I try to keep my software development ranting to the bird site, but it may end up spilling over here

3) ???
4) No profit. Homophobia benefits no one.

Been working on this for a bit, but I finally got it in a decent state this weekend: github.com/ebassi/xdg-mime-rs

Xdg-mime-rs is a Rust crate that loads and queries the shared-mime-info database; you can check what's the MIME type of a file based on its filename or its contents.

Can we stop obsessing with "Converting people from windows" and instead focusing on making something worthwhile?

Seriously, it doesn't mean shit what system someone might be running. What difference would it make someone selling a different product than windows? (btw this wouldn't even matter cause its the OEM sales that are the revenue)

Stop with the damn preaching...

Going to town on my favourite piece of GTK code: the file selection dialog

I've written a report on the hackfest held in Brussels at the end of January: blog.gtk.org/2020/02/17/gtk-ha

Lots of work to do on the side, but we have a plan

I'm still looking for a stable job, programming related this time hopefully. I have some experience in writing desktop/web apps and open to learn new stuff.

In the meantime, if you enjoy the work I do and you would like to donate I would appreciate that a lot liberapay.com/bielmoussaoui :)
