Pinned toot

I realized many of my favorite games are basically about managing technical debt:

- Tetris
- Lumines
- Splatoon 2: Salmon Run
- CSS

There isn't a previous sibling selector for CSS, but you can fake it.

Pretend there's a bunch of links & one in the middle has a class of "thing".

Select siblings before that element by throwing out itself & everything after:

a:not(a.thing):not(a.thing ~ a) {
color: green;
}

The tenth Fast and Furious movie should totally be called Fast 10 Your Seatbelt

Instead of calling it The Year 2038 Problem, shouldn't they have called it Epoch Fail

I wrote about how Purism helps transforming GNOME since over 3 years, and how it's all just the start!

How can I easily tell (on a phone) if an image has alt text or not on Mastodon. Would be great if Mastodon visibly flagged images that don’t have alt text with a warning in the interface so we know not to boost posts that don’t have it.

A storm is rolling in, so I'm getting a headache.

I'm suffering from a migRAINe.

This is potentially very cool: the Parlatype app can do automatic-speech-transcription: github.com/gkarsay/parlatype/c

2 speech-models so far: CMU PocketSphinx & Mozilla DeepSpeech. Maybe even MORE interesting as a test-case of DeepSpeech, which up to now has been one of those many Moz-funded projects that Moz has refused to build anything useful from, and is perpetually at risk for getting snuffed out & buried in a shallow grave behind HQ.

Good to see Alestorm made a Wellerman cover... A band with a pirate theme has to do a shanty meme, right?

On-canvas alignment guides aka "smart guides" are more or less functional in one of Inkscape's GSoC git repos.

I did not expect something so usable to be available in this year's GSoC projects this early. But hey, you live and learn! :) Parth Pant who made this possible is a real hero.

I'm watching music videos on Mtv. It's currently featuring one from Prince…

Yep; I'm watching a video from 1982 about 1999 in 2021.

After getting the second shot today, my left arm hurts a bit.

...but I got the shot in my right arm.

:thaenkin:

Side effects of the second vaccine shot may include:

- Increased desire for yet another cup of coffee.
- ...and another.
- ...and another.

If anybody in the FOSS graphics world has written a good "how-to" showing people what their non-commercial photo/video backup-and-hosting options are for all the Android users suddenly hit with Google Photos' change-of-storage-terms yesterday — point me to it.

I (and plenty of others) would want to give it a boost.
