Performative capitalism is a thing.
Likely controverisal take:
Languages with first-class package managers that make it really easy to use dependencies are a case where ease-of-use and usability might be actively harmful. It encourages developers to NOT audit their dependencies, and eventually leads to node_modules, which eventually leads to leftpad. Having fewer dependencies because adding depenedencies is annoying is not actually necessarily a bad thing.
I just asked on Super User: Are .gitignore files from directories above the repository's or from home directory loaded in any versions of Git? #git #gitignore https://superuser.com/questions/1519345/are-gitignore-files-from-directories-above-the-repositorys-or-from-home-direct
@haskal There are even localized variants, like !gfr for the French version of Google, or !wfr for the French version of Wikipedia.
And my favourite : !gtfr for Google Translate from [detected language] to French (works with !gten, !gtde, etc).
in chinese i asked my wife if she wanted any fried-egg sandwiches for breakfast, she was upstairs, so it was a little hard to hear, and then she replied "i already had 2 newspapers"
my half-awaken ass paused for a sec before realizing she said this chinese bun thing with sweet stuff inside, and not newspapers
i need coffee before i can hear the difference between
someones she speaks with a southern chinese accent so the "h" gets lost and it sounds the same
does anyone here speak hindi?
i noticed on a packet of supermarket curry there was the word इंडियन in the branding
my rusty knowledge of nagari from sanskrit many years ago leads me to believe that this says, uh, "indian", but the hindi for indian is not "indian"..??
what's going on here. are sainsburys being overly phonetic in their translation
xfce, sticky alt text, bug
Hey, so I have noticed this a lot of times: Applications that provide alt-text hovering over things (i.e. Firefox) will not make it disappear immediately when switching windows with alt-tab.
Sometimes it gets stuck until I hover over it, sometimes until I focus the window causing it. Sometimes it gets stuck and won't disappear ever until I restart the X server.
Does anyone have an idea where to start searching for what causes it and/or how to fix it?
