Why I start hating to build free software are comments like these:

"Gadgetbridge always fetch wrong data from my watch. It seems like there is no plan to solve this issue. I'm totally disappointed."

Any idea how to deal with people who use software that was created by volunteers in their free time, and then complain and demand?


@ashimokawa I don't read comments on the play store anymore. What is harder to ignore are feature requests which are out of the scope of the software. On the other hand I have never bothered to write down the purpose and my vision of the software. 🤔

Who in their right mind thought that connecting docking stations to laptops via USB-C cables was a good idea? And who removed the screws from the video connectors? Why does everything have to be so flimsy?

HELLvetica. Like helvetica, but with like, much shittier kerning for Halloween.

Just a quick test of the downloadable ROM of with subpar hardware. I was a little bit hesitant with regard to the controls, but I was pleasantly surprised. Can't wait to test the version and for the cartridge to arrive.

"Tiny Tunes" by was released 25 years ago today and renamed to "Same Old Tunes" after legal threats later. Memories...

@evemassacre That's something I ask myself too. But at the moment I trust the more than I trust Mozilla.

Der 17. Januar 2020 wird ein Freudentag. Neue Platte von und neue Platte von , beide am selben Tag. Ich bin jetzt schon ganz hibbelig!

@rskikuli @codeberg I have only created an account so far, have not moved repositories yet. One reason is that I received an email from GitLab stating that they will add tracking (shared with 3rd parties) soon. Another reason is: I also like the mission statement of @codeberg and I think it is time for me to not take everything for granted anymore. That's why I decided to become a paying member.

I will probably keep my GitLab and GitHub accounts for collaboration though.

Use #gitlab, they said. It’s Free Software, they said. They will respect your privacy. They’re the good ones. #WhereIsMySurprisedFace

Moved from to about 5 years ago. Looks like its time to move again. @codeberg came to my attention recently. Thinking about becoming a sustaining member.

My wife asked me why I was speaking so softly at home.
I told her I was afraid Mark Zuckerberg was listening!

She laughed. I laughed.
Alexa laughed. Siri laughed.

Found this humorous paragraph in the English instructions of the Beyerdynamic DT 150 headphone/DT 190 headset: "[…] consequences of damaging [a highly-paid presenter's] ears may well prove to be music to the ears of the lawyers."

The German version is much more prosaic.
