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

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

Thinking about putting together a remote-terminal-only laptop. For going hog-wild with Byobu/Tmux on some of my remote boxes via SSH & Tor.

I'm guessing that a Chromebook-class device is the best fit there; even the official software builds include a terminal app. So long as long as there's not weird restrictions down in there somewhere about storing keys and whatnot.

Maybe there's other gotchas, though? Like needing browser stuff for network config? Anybody been down this road already?

So, what’s the latest on client-side scanning, then?

The lazy Firefox logo I posted last evening was rushed since it was getting late, so here's a more polished version. Attachment 2 is the transparent version so you can use it as icon

@milouse
So ... are you happy with this state of affairs? Do you think that not having a tracking-free device is the just punishment for you lack of knowledge?

I don't blame the LOS-people, but the future of privacy is dark if only a chosen few are able to defend it and the rest just shrug their shoulders.

Thos stuff needs to be available to all, including the time-poor -- and the number of devs who actively deny this is frightening me.

Announcing Meme It So! It's a Star Trek The Next Generation Meme and GIF Generator, inspired by Frinkiac.

It has every line of dialogue spoken on STTNG tied to screencaptures. Which makes it good for looking up lines as well.

Oh, wow: ANRT just released a big set of typeface revivals under the OFL: anrt-nancy.fr/fr/fonts/

The most interesting forms are in the Gotico Antiquas, but that's kind of a given compared to something as well-trodden as Baskerville.

-Dad, I want to be a Transformer for Halloween!
-No problem, kid!

@aday blogged about some of the platform work we've been doing lately.

tl;dr: GNOME apps are going to look so dope in a few months, it's kind of ridiculous :P

Playing with GNOME OS Nightly and some of the core apps already ported to GTK4.

GNOME 42 is going to be so good 🚀

Exciting EU study on open source software:

> avoids vendor lock-in
> reduces costs & maintenance
> drives state-of-the-art tech

maybe it is time to admit that our browsers are no longer mozilla 5.0 compatible

When you buy a pot of basil, you are not buying one plant, but a tightly sown clump of more than 20 seedlings.

This gives the appearance of an extremely healthy, bushy plant, which looks great on the shelf. But the reality is that these seedlings soon start to compete with each other for space, causing the plants in the clump to succumb to lack nutrients.

To fix this, take the clump of plants and divide the root ball into quarters by gently tearing it apart with your fingers.
