i just can't stop watching this video of the DoReDos practicing for their performance?? THERE'S SO MUCH GOING ON IN THIS NUMBER

Out of a bunch of Ubuntu 18.04 "flavors" that I tried, only Ubuntu Mate was able to make sound come out of my Surface 3 speakers.

Does anyone know how to compare the packages included in the different flavors, maybe I can find what I need to change on other versions to have them work?

This is just amazing:

TSB's systems show an amazingly user friendly error message and this is what the user (understandibly) interprets :D


Not to get into a big argument but are there any communists on Mastodon that agree with this (stealing from corporations)?

It's not even talking about specific examples, just some general notion that "it's just stealing what was already stolen".

This is so vague that it could extend to stealing any amount of products that you want, it doesn't seem based on justice at all. How exactly do you measure how much was stolen from you in order to know how much you can "steal back"?


that you can 'pin' columns in the Mastodon web client – and then you get a new right most column.

And I have been looking for an 'add column' option without luck.

So far the UI layout seems tricky, I haven't decided if it's best to toggle between the Radio Operator's map and the Captains map or simply use different colors for the lines of each submarine.

And really, the UI for the Radio Operator also seems like it will be tricky to make.

I haven't even put much thought into the AI I'll have to build to make the computer interesting to play against... 🙈

Just found out about FireChat, it's a chat app that can use wi-fi and bluetooth to create a p2p mesh network if there's no internet connection. People in Asia seem to be using it during protests or concerts.

Anyone familiar with it? Sounds really interesting.
