I kinda hate Gitter, despite being an open source piece of software, it would never make sense to host it yourself, making it an open source walled garden

During most of my career I've worked without an IDE, only using a text editor and some CLI tools. At my previous job the CTO smiled when I mentioned this during the interview, saying he liked that without telling me why.

Now I understand: it forced me to design things so they are simple enough to fit into my head.

The codebase I'm working on right now has been written by people who love both IDEs and OOP design patterns. It's a painful convoluted mess.

The new API for 4 is taking shape in GitLab: gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gtk/-/m

The new implementation drops the old abstraction layer called ATK, and it's heavily modelled on WAI-ARIA; on Linux, it will talk to ATs using AT-SPI, and on other platforms it will use their native API.

In this case the license isn't open source because of break of 1st and 5th clause of open source definition

do you know that feeling where you want to do something, but sysadmins?

Legal review in #openSUSE is a slow process (euphemism...) but sometimes you find interesting things.

e.g:
Did you know that the #Qt base module ships code that can only be distributed in its original zip file (code.qt.io/cgit/qt/qtbase.git/ QTBUG-81503) or that #CSound releases contain code that cannot be distributed (github.com/csound/csound/issue) ?

Even just removing the left-right border is a big improvement, wow

Hacked it into looking kinda alright, although highlighting the entire line and not doing left-right border instead could look better

Mastodon, what the frick guys, border-top-right-radius AND a border inside the table?

As a reminder, license clauses against "using software for evil" mean using software for what's legally evil and not morally evil

Polish politicians have declared LGBT+ people "enemies of the state." Pride marches are being attacked. Show your solidarity and sign now. #JestemLGBT a.allout.org/s/P9ByW/

They might have taken the "be gay do crimes" a little bit too seriously for the pride month this year in the US

I've spent the past week getting to know myself better and doing some self care.

I am proud to come out as a gay man.

I never thought I'd have the courage to do this and I really want to thank the fediverse for helping me be comfortable with who I really am.

I love you guys ❤️
