Please boost for reach. So, anyone that is working on FOSS projects like web apps, sites, Linux apps, desktop environments, or other user interfaces, please let me know if you want them tested for accessibility. I can do both CLI, web, and GUI testing, and app testing on Android. I'm running Debian (on a ChromeBook but that's not too important), so just give me the name of the package, or the URL of the site or app. I can also do Flatpak!

Procrastination is a super-motivater. I can get anything done, as long as it’s helping me procrastinate from some other task.

Just had Plasma crash on me. Typed out a bug report, installed debug symbols, created a bugs.kde account, … and there’s an “Error submitting your bug report” (with no further details). And then the crash handler program “DrKonqi” itself hangs, and has to be force-terminated. At that point it crosses over from a sad state of affairs to just being funny.

I know that a lot of people have the opposite experience, but I have rarely experienced these famed “stability problems” on Windows, and certainly not to the level I’ve experienced them on Linux over many many years.

The fifth time I’ve had to hard reboot my system, after having installed Linux. Looks like I’m dual-booting Windows after all, this Linux-only experiment has run for months and has had its fun parts, but the results are clear.

Chalk is composed of the skeletons of countless microbes, long-dead, even their seas are now dead.
When chalk squeals on a blackboard it is the impotent scream of countless dying wraiths as their reliquaries are annihilated

An oddity in English: "island" and "isle" are unrelated. "Isle" is from Latin (insula), and came into English as "ile" through French. "Island" is Germanic, and was originally "iland". In the 16th century, scholars added the "s" back into "ile" to make it conform more with the Latin original - and people mistakenly started adding it to "iland" as well, creating the modern "island".

Happy Mens day, to all the amazing men in the world and the many wonderful things men have done and accomplished everywhere, thank you, you are all appreciated!

When there’s news about bad decisions by a company/org, reading the Hacker News comments helps calm me down. I realize “at least these dumbasses aren’t in charge, so it’s not as bad as it could be”.
