It doesn't matter how fast and powerful a computer is, if the operating system is shit, the computer is shit.

Thanks for exemplifying your entire existence, how not to build operating systems.

javascript: where you can't ever be sure that 2+2 will always and forever be 4.

there's an uncomfortable truth that we linux people need to acknowledge.

even with the decades-overdue name change, glimpse has absolutely ATROCIOUS ux...

it seems to obey the rule of "make simple things difficult, some difficult things trivial, normal things impossible".

Protesting friends. If you need a messenger that works without WiFi or cell signal, add bridgefy before you go out. It creates a mesh network of all other Bridgefy users within 330 ft of you, and 330 ft of them, so you can message other Bridgefy users over long distances, even when the normal networks are being messed with.

Firechat used to be my go to for this, but it's gone away now. Bridgefy works on Android and iOS. Get it before you head out to protest.
