Re: Completely Off Topic Chat

I would like a

Linux detector
  • moving through your everyday life, how often have you seen a device (e.g. this) and wondered if there's linux inside it, thinking: "probably yes" - how cool would it be if you could point a detector to it that would then show the kernel version (if any) and maybe more info!

Re: Completely Off Topic Chat

reddit is a mean place, but some of its contributors are on a constant crusade to generate intelligent & funny, or at least extremely weird, output.
really, i mean it.
some of the comment battles are epic, ranging from funny remarks to weird dialogs to dadaistic poetry...

Re: Completely Off Topic Chat

Google/Chrome made a very dumb change in v69 (maybe Chromium too?): https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/is … ?id=881410. Probably some product manager going bonkers. Especially https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/is … 881410#c27:

Enter into the address bar:

http://www.example.www.example.com

It shortens it:

example.example.com

WTF? How does www.example.www.example.com === example.example.com?

LOL.

Someone posted it on the debian-user mailing list the other day. I don't know if they were quoting from elsewhere or not. We could add it, attributed to "anon" perhaps?

Re: Completely Off Topic Chat

I'm trying to switch from Firefox to Vivaldi (Chrome or Chromium based). It is having problems with fontconfig, forcing me back to Firefox.

This is on my main Arch Linux PC. Strangely, I do not have the problem on my notebook PC with Fedora.

Tim

PS - I'm not asking for help. I'm just waiting for fontconfig to fix the problem.

Re: Completely Off Topic Chat

^ nice.
took me a while to understand that it's really only about the terms, not the software itself.

yes, we should definitely start going down that road.
what else do we need to change?

kill is very offensive, and does not describe the process well. maybe freememalloc or some such would be better? but then, what about free? isn't freedom a very sensitive topic for many people?
personally, i'd like the word keyboard replaced with something more fitting. those aren't keys. they aren't buttons, either.
etc., etc....

Re: Completely Off Topic Chat

The comments made me snigger big_smile  The last post was:

Every single time you people decide to change software for no other reason than social justice, all normal programmers decide to be more racist, sexist, transphobic and whatever else pisses you off - for no other reason than just to spite you. We weren't using master/slave terminology before, but you can bet we'll be using it now - every single chance we get.

And we'll be thinking of it. You know, it. The reason why you think it's offensive. And I just want you to know - we weren't thinking of it before... but we are now. Only because of you.

You can claim that such measures hurt everyone, or that it's counterproductive, or that it even hurts our own careers.
It doesn't matter. It doesn't matter. It doesn't matter. Any price will be paid, social justice will fail, and if you don't drop it immediately, you will fail with it.

Nah, let's use exhale. It'll be part of the new GroovyHippieLittleHouseOnThePrairie OS.

@damo, Thanks for catching that.

Re: Completely Off Topic Chat

@dolly it's good to hear some people are happy with Firefox Quantum anyway. I haven't really had time to appreciate any of its improvements (speed?) because I've been mostly occupied with trying to find workarounds for the loss of my favourite addons*, get the tabs bar back at the bottom, etc... neutral

*) Especially Scrapbook and LiveClick, which won't be ported apparently.
...sigh...
