I've now heard plenty of times that #Wayland compositors are less power efficient than #Xorg because they do compositing, which is blatantly wrong. My Wayland setup uses less energy than my Xorg setup did WITHOUT compositing. This is not that surprising when you take a look at how the whole thing works. (I have no comparable values for window managers that have built in compositing but I imagine Wayland compositors to still perform better here)

Using Discord for your Open Source project. I hate it.

tired: running wayland because it's better than x

wired: running wayland so i have an excuse for not doing screen share in work calls

so i did a bit of digging, and it turns out Ferris is the unofficial mascot of Rust! I loved these emojis so much that were made by @mutantstd / @dzuk that I spent the afternoon making them into cross stitch patterns!

Bc converters are temperamental, I freehanded the emoji designs onto the grid 😅 also wanted to round it out to 8 patterns so i made the extra sweat drop design at the end cuz why not ! (i used that one a bunch lol)

C++ sure does make simple things complicated

Transcribed from screenshot:

git config --global alias.yoink pull
git config --global alias.yeet push

"deprecation warning" is just a pretentious way of saying "that's just a future-me problem"

The Alternative Big O notation:

O(1) = O(yeah)
O(log n) = O(nice)
O(n) = O(k)
O(n²) = O(my)
O(2ⁿ) = O(no)
O(n!) = O(mg!)

tfw the apathetic hand of entropy will ultimately and inevitably bring the universe to its silent, cold demise, casually wiping away the final, struggling clusters of life as they sip the last energy of the universe from ancient black holes

Theory: Building software on all cores is more satisfying the more cores you have!

audiophile, n:
Someone who listens to the equipment instead of the music.

Just tested out the new Matrix cross-signing and it's amazing. Finally usable E2EE in Matrix.
I experienced some quirks when migrating my pre cross-signing devices, but I guess that's okay since it's still not officially released (?).

Either way great job @matrix team and the community!
