Spotted on IRC, regarding a proposed change to some code: “I'll work on it when I have some meeting time again at work”.

Is that how people see meetings – as an opportunity to work on something else?

Forgot to hit “Save” on the settings page. @wjt exists now.

I'm experimenting with write.as. I believe that one can follow @wjt@write.as for future posts, but I published write.as/wjt/2019-in-review before enabling that so it's not there.

Turned on my (work) computer and within 60 seconds it became unresponsive to input. How's your new year going?

Day 4 of Christmas hols: tried to re-flash an unneeded, EOLed Endless device to donate to charity. Found a bug in the reflashing tool, rediscovered a bug in the factory test mode, and discovered that the desktop session doesn't come up at all on the last release of the OS for this platform.

I'm really bad at taking holiday.

@federicomena your work on getting GNOME Shell to use librsvg's CSS code will mean four languages in one codebase: C (mutter), C++ (GJS), JS, Rust. Fun times for debugging ahead!

I know my daughter's placeholder website is generated by Hugo, but I don't know where I stored the source files…

@KekunPlazas do you actually use the gnome-initial-setup EULA page on Librem 5? I see the librem5 branch has commits to adaptivize it

I regret saying anything about Linux distros first thing in the morning

Arch Linux enables an obscure build configuration option on a GNOME module I've adopted and I wanted to understand why. So I grabbed an ISO and discovered the "installation" process involves being dumped at a root shell and having to bootstrap your system by hand. This is ridiculous! Are Arch users the new Gentoo users?

I can barely understand a word the French children at my daughter's nursery are saying, let alone have conversations with adults, but evidently «passer l'aspirateur» was lurking somewhere in my head.

Love too use chat services whose official clients simply fail to display messages reliably

It has been [0] days since my daughter mashed at my computer and crashed gnome-shell.
