The @elementary Calendar app needs to be better even though the team has made improvements to it lately. It needs:
- Search
- Display multi-day events as a single event instead of breaking them up for each day.
- Improve intelligence/usage of time selection in event creation box (sometimes the process of adjusting times causes the day to change, er..)
- Perhaps even make the event creation text input smarter as well.
Nothing else looks better than Calendar on elementary, but its 2020!

Someone said "is that still a thing?" when I announced I was on Mastodon. Is it?
Boost this so we actually get a few votes maybe? How far can it go?

"I used to feel grateful that we had left the USSR before Soviet life had put me to that test. How strange and devastating to realize that these moral tests are now before us again in America."

Today Open-Source and FOSS share many elements, making it difficult to differentiate between the two. I'm curious what other people think is the major difference between Open-Source and FOSS.

Feel free to boost.

I wrote a new post, something a little more personal and honest than the usual content I post. I hope people read and can take away something from it.

When @elementary changed their lockscreen a few months ago, I wasn't a huge fan. However, after installing a gorgeous desktop background via Fondo, I just realized how much I like the new login screen look. I appreciate the vision of the elementary team.

I have really been enjoying playing Sudokular available on elementary OS AppCenter. I play it at least once every night. Check it out!

@cassidyjames I have a pull request for a Spanish translation that has a syntax error caught by Travis CI. I have provided feedback on the issue but the originator of the pull request hasn't responded in about 9 days. Should I continue to wait? Pull the request and fix it in my repo? Something else? Do you have any advice?

Me: What should I be doing instead of files?

Computer: Glad you asked! It's 2020. You should be spinning up a Kubernetes of Dockers on your public cloud each of which is a Github which send JSON messages over HTTP3 to the microservice host on your Virtualbox private cloud which is running a whole bunch more Dockers each of which is a Node.js which is pulling dependencies from

Me: files seemed a bit simpler than that

Computer: WELL WE HAD A VOTE AND YOU WEREN'T THERE AND WE SAID FILES SUCK.

@cassidyjames If I support the prefer-dark-theme option in my app andI also support custom coloring the header bar, what should the header bar be colored? Should I remove the custom color? Create a “darkened” custom color? Leave it alone? The elementary HIG doesn’t currently provide a preferred solution.

Just learned about git stashing. This is going to fix some frustrating aspects of my git workflow. Sweet!

Yessss more small phones. Pay attention, Apple, Samsung, and Google. A growing number of users are sick of massive unwieldy tablets and would prefer something practical like this. And to reiterate, small does not have to mean budget. I want tiny flagships. liliputing.com/2020/01/rakuten

Why does it always feel like Christmas whenever @elementary AppCenter has updates to install and new apps show up at the top of the page? Love this OS.

Running @elementary and need an onboard keyboard because your laptop keyboard is missing keys like Home and End? Launch the super handy, built-in "Onboard" app. Nice!
