Not convinced major tech YouTubers doing segments on is actually such a good thing overall.

Their take basically boils down to; you can't run Photoshop and being not informed enough to show you any of the benefits.

Hey Mastodon: please boost this #OpenSource job opp!

The Open Source Initiative (OSI) is hiring an Executive Director. Pay is competitive, we can hire anywhere in the US. I am on the hiring committee so feel free to ask me any questions about it! opensource.org/executive_direc

@maya @alcinnz heh - I think you misunderstand me. I'm not against graphical interfaces and I build them for the benefit of others. I just think it's the height of arrogance for someone to suggest that others are somehow deficient and even implying they're elitist for not having pro-actively built one for people who choose not to learn a perfectly serviceable CLI.

you can play most songs on just one string. anything more is pure vanity

Pinetab and the terminal 

Due to the limitations of this hardware (as well as my love for the terminal) I have settled into doing nearly everything in a terminal emulator. I am using sway and have a terminal emulator open on 6 different virt desktops for various things. One of them has a web browser that I try to keep to 3 tabs or less.

the shared clipboard functionality of kdeconnect is 💯

reading an email on your phone that has a link in it but you know the link will be better on a bigger screen? just copy the url to your phone's clipboard and hit paste in the url field of a new tab on your laptop. magic.

I've just discovered libretranslate.com/ - an open source translation API which can be self-hosted.

That's another one on the list of things to spin up when I get some time!

Coming up in ~2 hours, I'm giving at talk on @spritelyproject's at FOSDEM: "
Spritely Goblins: a distributed journey" fosdem.org/2021/schedule/event

This one has some very interesting bits about how we might collaborate with the Guile and Guix worlds too!

Best part about libhandy: it lets me remove a ton of code where apps were re-implementing the same thing in different ways.

Did you miss our #GTK chat hour yesterday? We have another one starting now (13:00-14:00 CET). chat.fosdem.org/#/room/#gnome-

Oh damn! This tiny handheld can emulate up to game boy advance currently and they say their goal is to emulate up to PS1. It looks cool as heck, like a teensy GBA SP. It is even open hardware and software.

#migra is a #publicdomain #database migration assistant.

migra is a tool that performs a #diff on two #PostgreSQL schemas, producing a set of commands that transforms one schema into the other. These commands can then be run on a live database which uses the original schema to result in a database using the new schema, while retaining the original data.
