I've been radicalized by video games, specifically City Skylines.

@scruss $20 for a hundred if you are willing to go to Mississauga

Just looked at some projects on Github and saw that the site no longer advertises a standard git command to copy for repo cloning. Now they encourage the use of 'Github CLI' with the syntax of 'gh repo clone'.

No doubt it's a wrapper around git that will slowly gain features that git won't add because there is no need for them.

They are no longer a 'git hub', they are a 'repo space'.

All leading to the classic, Embrace, Extend, Extinguish.

@scruss I'll give you some M3-45 if this will work.

gab, soapbox, fediblock 

Why do I block anything using soapbox (the full thing, or just the FE).

"Mastodon and Gab, for laying the groundwork for this to happen. Could not have done it without you."

So yeah, I will #fediBlock anything that uses that piece of software

I watched this video on media criticism of Wolfenstein: The New Order, and it was so good that I bought the game on steam and playing it now (It runs really well on steam-on-linux).

Here's an interesting use of map from #OpenStreetMap : mapping

How does it sound in your part of the world?

Lots of submissions from Europe, but everywhere else is sparse. I wonder if any of you folks from the corner of the world are keen to share something.

re: gender reveal (no, not the fiery one) 

@Dee Don't be so confident about it. It's 2020 everything is possible.

gender reveal (no, not the fiery one) 

@Dee Well, OK. Now half of UAE is going to go up in flames.

Great post!


DId I mention that facebook sucks. When doing any credit card transactions on facebook it automatically saves your information. It doesn't let you opt out.

I needed to edit a video which I haven't done in a while and I got to use new the new 20.08.0 version

Now kdenlive has vectroscope, under color mode. I also like the ideas of having different editing modes and optimizing UI for that).
Kdenlive no longer crashes when I use Experimental GPU processing, I think I no longer need to generate proxies.

I finally managed to get darktable to work by removing mesa-opencl-icd package.

I kept getting error message ": CommandLine Error: Option 'polly' registered more than once!
LLVM ERROR: inconsistency in registered CommandLine options"

Discussion is here -- bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugrep

For a long time I suspected a bug in nvidia drivers was causing this, but it turned out that the bug in LLVM.

#Kdenlive 20.08 is out with nifty features like Interface Layouts, Multiple Audio Stream support, Cached data management and Zoom bars but one may argue that the highlights of this release are stability and interface improvements.


@annika I couldn't finish it.

I've come to realization that I just don't care about that part of internet subculture at that time period and not even hbomberguy can make me care.
