Pinned toot

a rule of thumb: a simple, elegant program that does X (possibly "straight from your command line") will not support RTL languages correctly.

It's not the developers fault. RTL on computers that are built from a low level for LTR, tends to be a bit of a patchwork thing, far from being elegant or simple, and requires a subtle understanding of problems not obvious if you haven't juggled mixed RTL & LTR texts for years.

This writeup of my #LibrePlanet2018 keynote on BoingBoing is more eloquent and concise than the talk. Thanks to Cory for the awesome summary, reflections, and signal boost! boingboing.net/2018/06/21/digi

People who stretch photos to make them fit on the page... I just...

How do you transcend into KNOWING someone in a place like this? Is it even possible? Are we doomed to be ephemeral names and pictures for each other. Can anyone here care that I had a politically insignificant last day of school, finishing a complex job of running the afternoon activities, and that it was good? Would I care when others share that. Can I KNOW someone else here enough to make the real interest in their wellbeing part of my life?

Last day of work in school today. It was actually quite a fun year.

A friend of mine (who is one of the most accomplished indie publishers in Israel) is working on a new game and is looking for artists! Feel free to boost.

Here's his tweet:

Yes, there will be singing.

In the last year and a half is my listening material on my bicycle rides. It's pretty perfect for a long ride. I turn my brain off and have some fun.

I'm starting to enjoy programmers streaming their coding sessions on Twich / YouTube.

There's a lot you can learn from watching someone working on a piece of source code, voicing their entire thought process.

My personal favorites so far are "Fun Fun Function" and "JustForFunc". If you already discovered interesting channels, please share them with me!

I have a week left for my work in school. I need to go there now but can't find the energy.

I'm 37. Why the fuck do I stress every time my phone rings?

I'm looking for others with on the fediverse. Just looking for a bit of a support network in this. I would very much appreciate a boost.

If you have it say hi/follow please.

I wanna go cycling but I'm a bit pumped with insulin and I need to wait a while for it not to be a hypoglycemia-fest...

My 8y/o has gone to watch a championship of people kicking a ball with his friends. What have I done wrong?

Fun fact: when you change your picture even the vague continuity my brain might have constructed between your toots is lost.

Who are you, random stranger?

Reality doesn't federate. Considering moving to one that does.
