im about to lose another hour of work - the system is at least responsive, but krita itself has been peged at 100% for 5 min straight. starting to give up hope it'll come back.

ive lost about 5 hours of work all told

maybe the flatpak i'm using is broken but krita for me over the past 2 days has crashed catastrophically 5x, no exaggeration, never saves out an autosave even tho that's turned out, never does crash recovery, actually removes the file from the file system during crash. it's been so unreliable.

for the best results, treat those you work with as peers not subordinates (particularly when they are *not* your subordinate)

subtoot :)

I felt bad for him for a second, then considered what facebook does to all of us and no longer felt sorry.

the fact that your mother / daughter / aunt / sister / grandmother is female doesn't really prevent you from making incredibly sexist comments.

has anybody received notices that their data was stolen by cambridge analytica yet? have those gone out?
