Was Neil Young right?

« As part of the design process for what ended up becoming #GNOME 40 the design team worked on a number of experimental concepts, a few of which were aimed at better support for tablets and other smaller devices. Ever since then, some of us have been thinking about what it would take to fully port GNOME Shell to a #phone form factor. »

I saw Anathema in 2017 at the Gov in Adelaide, the night I proposed to my wife.

Even though I had everything planned out, the atmosphere of the show was so thick with emotion that I seriously considered getting on my knee and proposing during the show. I didn't, but it was that kind of vibe.

Danny was very soft-spoken and very open during the show, and seems like a really gentle soul. I hope he is able to get good help and recover. Wasn't aware of why had gone on hiatus.

Thanks #Australia for voting out ScoMo. There are so many things I love about this country and I am just so glad that you’ve voted in people who are gonna do more about #climatechange. You’ve still got a long way to go but great next step.

Huh. I didn’t know Mobygames had used their data to assemble something like this. Very interesting indeed.


After the Duke Nukem Forever 2001 build leak I am interested to see if anyone reviewed it. Look it up on YouTube and see reviews from 10 years ago. And I think heh, obviously all April Fool's reviews if they are that old.

Then I remember the actual final game came out more than 10 years ago.

We are living in a world where Chinese Democracy and Duke Nukem Forever have been out for over 10 years. 10 YEARS.

Agree with the sentiment that Linux client adoption on the desktop would be helped significantly by getting it onto PCs before they are sold to customers. Much easier said than done though, exemplified by when Microsoft cancelled Windows 10X development because OEMs told them there was no customer interest in it. Not even Windows can compete with Windows in the OEM space.

Mum: I love you, mate
Me: Oh yeah? Name three of my albums

Gnome-shell's early design was truly a strange beast, though kind of cool circa 2008.

A Nifty Dynamic Wallpaper Maker for GNOME 42

Ditch the scripts and erase the elaborate terminal commands ‘cos the following GTK4 app makes it super easy to create your own dynamic wallpapers to use in GNOME 42 (and above). Woah, woah: not the old kind of dynamic wallpapers. Awesome though those timed slideshows were/are I’m fully aware apps to create them aren’t new (though weirdly I’ve never written about any 💁🏻‍♂️). Anyway, this is a new Dynamic Wallpaper creator for GNOME 42. To recap: vanilla GNOME 42 comes with a proper standardised dark mode implementation that all modern GNOME apps respect. It’s pretty cool. As part of that :sys_more_orange:

A sparrow hit the window in front of me, fell to the ground, and then got mobbed by a gang of noisy miners that took turns in pecking at it. Then when they all buggered off, a lone magpie swooped in to drag its twitching body around for a bit before also flying away and leaving it there.

Turns out birds are dicks.

Which is best?

I'm thinking of starting a blog. What platform are all the cool cats using these days?

I remember being very little and believing that I was the only one with a truly unique consciousness. I would hold out my hands and see them through my eyes, but other people were also seen through my eyes from the outside, so they must simply exist as characters in my world, where I was at the centre of it.

I think it was only when I saw Doom on the family PC, with the hand and gun up on the screen, that it occurred to me that maybe other people shared that experience.

Also it occurs that perhaps some people never grow out of that belief.
