Making light of family deaths
I roughly remember a webcomic I saw 10+ years ago. It went roughly as follows:
A: I remember my father's last words to me
A: He drowned.
--- flashback ---
Father: Now son, always remember:
[ Father jumps into sea ]
But I can't for the life of me find it. Does it ring any bells?

@Edent Debian's idiosyncratic tool choices actively encourage this these days. (Most...) packages are maintained in a GitLab instance which allows guest accounts and has merge requests enabled, but issues *disabled*, because you're supposed to relearn how to operate debbugs by email. So instead I send tentative MRs.
I've been thinking a lot over the past year about the problems that the #ethicallicense movement is seeking to address. Here's a simple proposal for another possible legal mechanism, creating ethical employment contract provisions! #contractpatch

Nice post from Georges about PipeWire. I got a live demo of him using Carla to route audio from a browser tab into a different browser tab the other day. Pretty cool! https://feaneron.com/2020/12/07/switching-to-pipewire/

@dthompson my own kids will likely get Android phones and Linux computers because I replace mine much faster than my partner does. The real question is, will they be ostracised if I teach them to type in Dvorak?
@dthompson I am excluded from most of my partner's extended family's shared photo albums and chats because they're all in the Apple ecosystem, so I have no doubt that the social isolation for non-iPhone kids is real (to some extent, for some kids).
I'd like to try using my Android phone as a webcam. I really don't want to build out-of-tree kernel modules. The stock answer seems to be DroidCam https://www.dev47apps.com/ which involves out-of-tree modules. Must I really?
I once worked in “film” and it was weird.
