Was thinking about this funny comic I saw a while back. Here it is.
How to save the princess in 8 programming languages.
Valve has boosted their Linux ranks by hiring another developer to work on open source graphics https://www.gamingonlinux.com/articles/valve-has-boosted-their-linux-ranks-by-hiring-another-developer-to-work-on-open-source-graphics.11195 #Editorial #Valve
This game, Red Eclipse looks pretty fun, it's an arena shooter a la Quake/Unreal. The thing that caught my eye is that it's released as an #AppImage.
This could be really useful for where you need to be running a specific version of a game in order to join a server. If a server's out of date, you can revert to an older AppImage with minimal fuss. It also allows more distros access to the latest version of the game.
I'm starting to like #AppImages the more I use them.
It's cool that ActivityPub is an official W3C recommendation now. https://www.w3.org/blog/news/archives/6785
Considering pitching the Open Source Hardware Association (OSHWA) Board on joining @Liberapay
Little concerned about not seeing other large US-based FOSS orgs on there like FSF, EFF, SF Conservancy
We'd need to check into accounting, legal, security, etc. before implementing anything, too
What do you think, Mastodon?
Well. I wrote a blarticle (what I know call blog articles) discussing a few different open sourcey phone projects. Spoiler, android isn't even mentioned.
#introductions Revisiting Mastodon after a two-hour stint a few months ago. Hi y'all! Software engineer from South India, glad to make your acquaintance :)
Just "Permanently Disabled" my patreon account. Moved my full donation to Liberapay for @matrix
The only reason I use any donation platform is for matrix (at this point) because matrix is trying to build an open source - distributed and federated, communication system that is similar to google hangouts or slack (complete with group video chat).
It's already working if anyone wants to check it out at https://riot.im
Wow, the Mob song from Beauty and the Beast sound absolutely brutal as a metal cover.
Hey, great news to people like me.
According to @therealmatthartley who posted on google plus System76 laptops will have the intel mangement engine disabled.
Covered too many things to link them all here, but happy to discuss anything that came up, just let me know, especially here on Mastodon!
OMG Ubuntu have a pretty cool article explaining how to search Duck Duck Go from the command line. http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2017/11/duck-duck-go-terminal-app #Linux
