Arguing with an app user about the way I maintain a Flathub package for a (stagnant upstream) app that I neither contribute to or use at 10pm on a Friday night, and thinking: how did I become a package maintainer? The whole premise is to disintermediate! I always hated being on the other side of these interactions.
Introducing Skynet for #Flathub. Well, almost. https://barthalion.blog/external-data-checker-for-flathub/
I was just pointed to a section in the Jenkins documentation titled “Creating fungible slaves”. Not a good choice of terminology for a software project, but “Fungible Slaves” would make a *great* grindcore band name.
New Yorkers! Last chance to see “The Criminal Type” at Apex Art and then tell me how it was. I'm on the wrong continent but I know the curator has great taste.
Alright, I guess I'll enter https://github.com/NaNoGenMo/2019/issues/82
A quick #nanogenmo attempt by generating paragraphs from all translatable strings in the Endless OS checkouts I have on my laptop, filling in printf %s placeholders in sentences with other, shorter translatable fragments. Verdict: mediocre.

Why are people so obsessed with linear Git history graphs, to the point that they invent CI checks which mandate that every merge request must be opened, then inevitably fail CI because the commit messages don't have a MR URL in them, then amended and force-pushed now that you have the MR? It boggles the mind.
GNOME stack internals
TFW you spend your Sunday on a quick bugfix in pygobject, and find either a 10-year-old leak in gjs, or that you have fundamentally misunderstood container transfer semantics for most of your GNOME-y career.
The Sky Behind The Flag by Owen Pallett is such a great tune. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=radgfxRD-NY
New York pals! I haven't been to this exhibition but Elizabeth Breiner, the curator, is a friend with excellent taste (and another friend who doesn't know her enjoyed it).
"The Criminal Type" at Apex Art, 291 Church St
I finally watched my own lightning talk at GUADEC, and wrote a thing about the same thing. https://blogs.gnome.org/wjjt/2019/09/23/flatpak-external-data-checker/
I don't look anything like as nervous as I was. Funny how speaking for less than 5 minutes about a piece of software you know well to a friendly audience can still be daunting!
Suburban juror. I once worked in “film” and it was weird.
