Pinned toot

No matter which social network you're on, following a diverse group of people helps you taking a peek at the other side of your personal filter bubble.

You don't have to agree with everything and everyone, but please, at least try to listen to people and their opinions.

It will help you appreciate your own life, and may just make you a little wiser.

If only it was just my morning ๐Ÿ˜†

I had a quick workaround for my scrolling issue in a couple of minutes, but the proper fix occupied me for the rest of the day.

The commit review bot considers my code sane...

LITTLE DID IT KNOW ๐Ÿ˜‚

I didn't plan to spend my morning debugging Xorg / xcb / evdev / Qt code, but here I am :thinkerguns:

Wait a second... is saying there's a CPU instruction that does floating-point conversions now?

Apparently they are: infocenter.arm.com/help/index.

This is mildly absurd.

If you're happy and you know it Segmentation fault

You know what? I think I'll take a quick nap.

In other words, I'll be scrolling through the federated timeline, favoriting your toots, until I realize it's too bright to fall asleep anyway.

Then I'll be grumpy.

While copying a bunch of 20GB blu-ray rips, it occurred to me that I once decided to only rip my MP3s in 192kbit instead of 320kbit, just to conserve a bit of valuable disk space.

That probably was a ridiculously short-sighted decision...

In related news: it's about time I start archiving everything in 4k, x265. Right? Right.

Seriously fediverse, you rock! ๐Ÿ’•

(in response to my previous toots and your reactions to it)

Please, if you like this toot, don't just favorite it, boost it!

In return I promise I'll collect all the replies, pick the cherries, categorize the lot... and toot about it for everyone to enjoy!

Deal? ๐Ÿ‘

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!

What was the most motivating, satisfying or rewarding project you've ever worked on?

Was it because of the project itself or the team you worked with? The money you made? The impact it had? The stuff you learned?

Tell me all about it, I'm curious!

I got to get up in 4 hours and drive to the airport. I can totally see that working out beautifully. NOT. :blobpats:

@fribbledom
I like Krita too. Enough that I recently realized I'd forgotten how to use Photoshop, actually...

I think there are three key features I'd like to see in the future of Mastodon:

* Account migration
* Read only mode
* Admin notification for new releases

Two days ago I asked the fediverse what your favorite (lesser known) beverages are. Oh boy did you respond!

Here's a list of your favorite drinks:

Cheerwine, Mate, Chicory, Lassi
Dandelion, Birch Beer, Moxie
Kvass, Pommac, Spezi, Oh!
Switchel, Loganberry, Malta
Puma Cola, Julmust, Faygo
Bohtinis, Yaupon Tea, La Croix
Spoetnik, Almdudler, Boylans
Borjomi, Cel-ray soda, Kombucha
Snakebite, Vimto, Naartjie Juice
Sarsaparilla, Pichuncho

This will be my new "beverages to try before you die" list.

Personally, I would have totally helped Doc Brown build that time machine. Who's this Marty you're talking about?

Also, I'd of course be the son Captain Picard always wanted.

I'd be Barney Rubble, because let's face it, Betty's just the cutest.

In all honesty though, I think I'd like to live in a time where humankind as a whole has grown up and we've discovered alien life forms. Those two events might be interlinked even.

Imagine you could have picked any time to be born and any place to grow up.

Which year would you have picked? The past? The future? Where would you have wanted to grow up?

Do you ever feel like you're living at the wrong place in the wrong time?

Imaginary places/settings and times totally do count!

My Griffin PowerMate finally arrived today!

Getting it running on Linux was painless, as it's just another input device, really.

I can already control the volume and switch my browser tabs with it, but I still need to properly configure MagicWand to support more of my workflows:

switching virtual desktops, scrolling through image previews and so on...

I wish the knob was a little heavier and grippier, though. Still, nice haptics for such a relatively inexpensive device!

Is everyone having a lovely Friday evening?
