is awesome & I love their work, but... Can *anyone* load their website?

I think the site uses more processing power than their games!

"540 million records leaked!"

And in other news, the world is *utterly shocked* to find out that the sky is blue yet again today.

Okay, so when you're exporting a in , I finally discovered why it doesn't default to 100% (it's usually set to 90%)

Quality:
90% - 150Kb
100% - 750Kb

Wow! That's a *huge* jump! There's hardly any visual loss here, too (same result with multiple files)!

Maybe you all knew that already, but it hit me like a rock, because I've been exporting all my stuff to 100% quality!

Back on the ā€œwanting to build good computersā€ thing, warming-up to the idea of starting a company if necessary to do so...

R.I.P
(No longer in GNU's list of endorsed distros because it is not maintained)

Some preliminary hacking on Guix is making me really wish that I did replace Gentoo with GuixSD when I had the the time to do so over spring break. Guile seems so much better suited to this sort of thing than Bash does.

Oh yeah, I change my underwear often, I am not depressed, and I am not going to get a haircut!

I generally see my microblog posts to be pretty normal, but my mother asks me about the things I say on here in a very concerned way.
Hi mom. This list is pinned for you to help get rid of some confusion

* GNU is not a drug

* I cannot download drugs

* I am not suicidal, it is just part of the joke.

* I am grammatically incorrect, not mentally ill.

* I am not part of a gang.

* The flashing button that says "Fix my computer" is NOT to be pressed.

* I may not always show it, but I love you.

Trying to understand the #Hurd boot-up process.

They have the kernel start two tasks, ext2fs.static for the root filesystem and the exec server, and connect them via ports.

ext2fs, seeing that it's the bootup FS and not a regular ext2fs server, starts /hurd/startup, which stars the auth and proc servers [so the next process to start gets a PID of 1], and then runs "runsystem", which is a shell script that starts pflocal and the default pager, and after that exec's the regular Unix /sbin/init.

Well, I guess I uploaded it today anyway. This is not an April Fool's joke, it's just another blog post. Sorry.

I don't know enough about for this to help much, but it was fun to write!

I'll probably finish writing my article on Web design tomorrow, but I think I'll upload it the day after. I don't want to give off the wrong vibe.

Whether this is an April fools thing or a script kiddie having fun, it's overly rhetorical & persuading and I learnt of a new protocol today:

devuan.org/pwned.html

Whenever there's a new Vim release, There's always a few light jabs from Emacs users (& vice-versa)

But when there's a new release, it seems like *everyone* loses it!

(4.0 is nice, by the way)

I mean, I 'm lazy & don't want to have to do C-v every time I open a file just to start reading the code (especially if it's a one-liner/one-function file!)

Also slightly more familiar with the codebase.

I'm unfamiliar, however, with convention...

Is it *required* for GNU projects to slap the GPL at the beginning of *every* file? Why can't Mediagoblin just have a LICENSE file/folder at the source's root directory?

Halfway through the ActivityPub protocol specification (still. I haven't had enough free time). I also just found out about Gargron's AP tutorial:

blog.joinmastodon.org/2018/06/

It looks really nice & I plan on reading it tonight if I don't fall asleep first!
