I don't like the way oneplus shows the app list, there's no way to sort apps into groups/folders like there was with samsung - it's alphabetical chaos instead of categorical order!

Anyone have suggestions on how I can change this? Haven't done any Android development but am fueled by the discomfort of looking at it - it's the reason I didn't migrate to this phone for the last 4 months =P

jesus christ this post just rung my doorbell and punched me in the face when i answered

Moving from one android phone to another and bringing your data with you should really not be as difficult as I found it today =/

DevOps is designed to align motivation and risk - if you carry the pager for code you write, you're going to be responsible for the consequences of your code, and change your plans accordingly - but if we wanted to do this right for social media, the people actually writing the code would be spending a few days a month moderating content, too.

Climate strike 

Back from the march. Whoo boy that was a lot of people! Lots of slogans. The antifascists, the anarchists, the vegans, the feminists; lots of people marching together for the planet. Lots of kids too. Schools were closed today so the kids could come to the march, and it feels like every kid old enough to come by themself was here, as well as many younger kids with their parents.

Looks like it was the biggest ever in Québec history:
