Me: I’m confused, are you getting these when you run Site.js as a daemon?
Reply: No, whenever I use my Linux laptop. Pls help! [another screenshot]
Me: ??! *sigh* *looks at second screenshot* OK, sounds like your hard disk is dying.
First test to produce our own #birdview to collect cartographic data with http://atelier-cartographique.be. Could be seen also as a reenactment of actions "to ask about the material #economy behind the data. What are the conditions that make a data #visualization possible? Who are the funders? Who collected the #data? Whose labor happened behind the scenes and under what conditions?" grouped in this article from various #feminist practices.

Hi Fediverse 👋
hope you are fine while we are approaching the weekend 🙂
Let's make it colourful with:
- #GIMP and @glimpse / Raster graphics editors 🎨
- #darktable / Raw photo editor 📷
- #blender / @blender / 3D creation suite 🖥️
- #LibreOffice / @libreoffice / Office suite 📄
- #Inkscape / @inkscape / Vector graphics editor ⛰️
Have a nice time and maybe do something creative and fun if you feel like it 🌻
Facemasks in the new Gnome store is fun!
But, this is yet another store with merch for a good cause that don't say anything about how their stuff is produced.
Since the clothing industry is terrible, with inhumane, dangerous conditions, even slavery, and terrible environmental impacts, I just don't understand why so many take so lightly on this. Ethical conditions aren't even expensive. I won't support slavery, so I can't buy merch I don't know how is produced.
That's why I love @aptgetshirt.
GIMP has quite a few features that are not very much visible to end-users and sometimes downright difficult to make obvious. Doing basic math calculations in the input fields is one of them. Basically, you can write '2467+7893', press TAB, and GIMP will compute the sum for you. So I did a video about this feature with slightly more details than that :)
We've been asked if we could quickly implement new features in #Liberapay so that it could replace #Bountysource, which has been doing shady things. We can't and we don't want to. Encouraging people to pay for a specific issue to be solved is problematic, it creates bad incentives instead of providing stable funding for the proper maintenance and development of a project. If you still think bounties are a good idea, then you can try to revive https://freedomsponsors.org/
Just have published a quick video about the Vignette filter update and the new Focus Blur / Variable Blur filters in upcoming GIMP v2.10.20 (to be out really soon now). This is a very basic intro for now, all this new stuff clearly deserves a more in-depth coverage!
By the way, I hope the tilt-shift part wasn't too distracting. I think I really had to point out we are talking only about a subset of what the real gear can do :)
Seeking feedback from color blind/deficient people on https://pippin.gimp.org/ametameric/
A terminal color scheme constrained to be near de-facto standards while providing internal contrast for for dichromats and contrasting text for all colors on both black and white background.
If this works well it can be used as a decent default palette; allowing color vision deficient operators to see contrast in TUIs and syntax highlighting using default colors.

Join us at Libre Graphics Meeting in a few months in Rennes, France.
The Norwegian public broadcaster NRK is showing 9 days of continuous video from Svalbard these days, to mark the 100th anniversary of the Svalbard Treaty. https://www.nrk.no/presse/programomtaler/svalbard-minute-by-minute---slow-tv-1.14869773
The more I think about it the more I miss Libre Graphics magazine http://libregraphicsmag.com/
Well, if you have classes that include quizzes on button positions, you have bigger problems than program names. 😿
I am all for forking, just won't recommend this fork for a few years. If it will be still around in a year or two, good.
Also please stop being this antagonistic I am not even against glimpse and you. 😅
I want a bot that crawls reddit and locks issues temporarly whenever somebody posts them in order to mob and harass the developers.
