(#rust) why on Earth haven't I heard of std::mem::discriminant before
Looking to migrate away from Google but still looking for free/affordable replacements without the hassle of hosting them yourself?
There are many choices, take your pick:)
Feel free to add to this list if I've missed any good ones:)

I'm not stoked by Mozilla having to do this either, but I also think you're doing them a major disservice by measuring them with this yard stick.
They only really have Firefox for making money and by their (/ their mother's) non-profit status, they are legally bound to reinvest any money they make into their mission statement, of which most goes back into Firefox.
So, those ads that you see there are just the manifestation of the costs of developing a modern web browser.

Anyone can make music. Anyone can learn to make music better than they do, use new music-making tools, etc. — it's mostly about access, time, and the discipline of practice. Whether you can make a living from music doesn't necessarily track with how skilled you are. Professionals are people who get to practice every day, and so chances are their music will be higher-quality than non-professionals
But anyone can make music. And making music for your own joy, or for people close to you, is fine even if it isn't professional-quality. Professional music isn't "more real" or even "more valuable"; but also you can learn a lot from professionals and some things really require their skills and experience
There are outliers, of course
Now replace "code" for "music" there and it all remains true. This industry needs to stop pretending amateur programming is less valuable or less important. We can still value what skill and experience bring to the table without shitting on amateur coders

(Skip the first two minutes it you don’t want to hear my Vimeo rant as they had me scrambling at the last minute to set up a new stream. Not sure if it’s busted on Firefox on Linux or what.)
I'm a big fan of Svelte (as you may have noticed 😃) so when the creator of #Svelte's comment on my barely functional proof of concept #gitportal is "nice!", forgive me for sharing his Tweet: https://twitter.com/Rich_Harris/status/1334270700769710080

Kid wants to learn animation. He's used Wick, but it can't do everything he wants to do, and he's used up a trial of Adobe Animate.
I don't want to support Adobe's Creative Cloud keep-paying-every-month-forever subscription model.
Question for the fediverse: What animation drawing programs have you used? Which ones have you found to be easy to learn, capable, reasonably priced, etc?
We've looked at some of the other programs here, but I'm hoping for more context:
I think I finally found the way I wanted to use bat:
alias cat 'bat --paging=never'
alias less 'bat --paging=always'
Alle Weihnachtsgeschenke bei Amazon bestellen? Würde ich nicht empfehlen! Amazon ist neben Google & Facebook einer der größten Datensammler. Es gab außerdem zahlreiche Skandale wegen Überwachung von Angestellten. Darüber habe ich mit @email@example.com gesprochen.
it's quite a natural fit, since scientists aren't the best coders. So while rust has a steep learning curve, you can still get results with speeds of C/C++ comparably fast without living in fear of segfaults (that is if the right libraries are available).
