Software "engineer" by trade and study. #Space enthusiast, loves #scifi. Also looking to pivot away from pure software, and into #spacetech, #biotech or #cleantech. Or in any other way contribute something meaningful back to this world. #Emacs is my OS. I may have made a #nyancat for it once.
Weird Linux issues #4213: whenever I stop moving my mouse, the first click always also moves the cursor a few pixels in the direction the mouse was moving before clicking.
No, it's not my hand. It looks like some unflushed buffer somewhere.
Beyond being extremely annoying whenever I have to click on buttons, it essentially makes SolveSpace unusable on my desktop.
Here's an idea for a YouTube/Twitch channel: reviewing SaaS webapps.
Each episode would review one or more web SaaS purporting to solve a specific problem, and compare them against one paid and one FOSS desktop program. The comparison would be done in terms of features, performance, size, UX and accessibility.
(To add insult to injury, the comparison could be done against desktop apps that are more than 5 years old.)
Life *is* an RPG, complete with quests - called "obligations" when undertaken. But in life, those quests come to you unsolicited, have to be done in parallel, and have very crappy rewards (though they sometimes compound).
I guess this is how it looks when you optimize the quest system towards maximum efficiency.
One day someone will invent self-cleaning windows or floors and become a gazillionaire.
The time and effort almost everyone needs to spend on cleaning stuff is just sad. It's high time to solve it. I'm not even talking spills, just the dust and dirt, mineral leftovers from drying moisture and insect poop. Seriously, the longer I live, the more I understand why rich people hire cleaning stuff.
I regret that I did not *immediately* watch this video of the Progress rocket launch as seen from the ISS. If you have made the same mistake, watch now. It's glorious. https://youtu.be/aJy1u-N3NY0
So it turns out griefing is quite an old concept...
Wrote that because I have to deal with a lot of German text, and copy-pasting to/from Google Translate is annoying.
Accounting software roguelike, or Eve Online Ultra Lite, I suppose.
Just a coder / space enthusiast.
