The results for the Rust 2018 Survey are in:
Connected my #Android phone after two weeks of total offline. It gone mad slow and for about a minute played notification sound. And it lagged for whole that minute.
Damn you, Java!
@TheOuterLinux wow, didn’t know you make videos, I’ll check them out later :)
By the way, thanks for sharing this platform you post your videos too. Was on my way of degoogling life, and feel stuck with finding nice YouTube alternative. I’ll check this out :)
Wrote small post on medium of why I leave twitter for good 😄
Todaty will be the day, when I will write a lot of code that will be open sourced then. I will do the coding hometasks for university I've been avoiding for almost whole semester 😂
Will use them to get a bit better with https://sr.ht software hosting.
Also have been thinking, whether it is good idea to try out #Rust for GTK development?
It's like a newer more powerful language with rich toolset and which is afaik in process of adoption in #Gnome community.
Also all the build-time-gc convinces me it is good idea. But I didn't manage out borrowing and wrapping variables though...
Few days of checking out gtkmm with C++. It feels pretty nice, yet requires a bit of boilerplate code to write. Although, build time feels bad, very bad. But the application is very fast though.
And hell, I've used dynamically typed languages too much, I feel strange of writing this boilerplate code too much. I already want to detach parts that repeat and replace them with decorator declaration or something like that...
Just had a discussion about #AMP. I've heard an opinion that it is _good_ thing from web performance perspective, because it allows our servers not to render page. My mind is blown
Free software will die some day. Why?
Because everybody thinks that his vision of things is the only one that is right. And everybody who tries to do something, tell that all others so things wrong.
Please, stop doing this! Be friendly and reasonable to each other!

It seems that my phone and email got exposed to wide mass 😕 I get a lot of spam emails and phone calls during last days 😞
And I don't want to change phone and/or email, but it seems I will have to. It becomes issue to me 😠
I've made a mock-up to illustrate my ideas about the next-gen terminal experience!
• the pathbar
• username, hostname and git branch displayed in the UI, shrinking the shell prompt back to just a $
• commands as cards
• syntax highlighting, including graying out the output a bit to differentiate it from commands themselves
• autocompletion (displayed in a native widget)
• built-in error handling options
• the time each command took (on the right)
Linux Firefox gripes Show more
Apparently Firefox's default behavior in Ubuntu when pressing Ctrl-Tab is to show a big overlay with tab previews, as well as cycling through tabs in most-recently-used order, rather than left-to-right. Also oddly Ctrl-Shift-Tab doesn't really work, as you have to press Ctrl-Tab first anyway. It's slow and clunky.
Luckily, it turns out that disabling "browser.ctrlTab.recentlyUsedOrder" in about:config fixes it. Now Firefox works the same as it does on Mac/Windows. Huzzah!
Found virt-manager (https://virt-manager.org/). Pretty great thing - gives you much control (not as much as VirtualBox though), and it just works. And QEMU based virtual machine really feels fast, compared to QEMU machine with #Gnome #Boxes frontend.
I know that the best way should be learning how to use qemu directly, but I don't have that much of time 😔
#Cockpit seems to be nice way for managing server without even connecting to it via SSH. Of course, it seems a bit dangerous from security perspective, but it feels very nice for administrating personal servers more easily
