Are we OK with people writing Chinese on and other platforms?
I mean, not in repos that can only be of interest to Chinese people, I mean in repos of public interest for all, where we usually write in .

Also sometimes even if a repo has the README in English, there are issues, pull requests, etc. in Chinese.

Is it only me finding it disrespectful? They may benefit from others who speak English (even those who are not native English speakers but strive) but we are left out when they speak Chinese? 😲

There are quite a few nice-looking GTK notes apps now, but unfortunately none of them have the one feature I'd really need: The ability to paste screenshots/screencasts and have them inline as part of the note.

IIRC inline media is supported by GTKSourceView, I wonder why nobody uses it?

This is what's wrong with the tech industry. The expectation that one should give their free time *EVERY DAY* or you're somehow "not passionate".

My response to that would be fuck you and your shitty fucking culture.

My kids and family are FAR more important to me than your ridiculous expectations.

Working on a nice account viewer in Kalendar on my way back from #las22. Like the rest of Kalendar, this supports various online sources like @nextcloud and other CardDAV servers.

My quick notes about the process of today's test published earlier: 5 steps, 3 layers, predictible and reproducible. I'll explore more with it, I like this simplicity.

Albert #Uderzo left us today... "Astérix" was certainly the first comic I read and his generous curved drawing style had a big impact on my way to draw. Rest in peace.

Anche Treccani parla di #SciHub, l'archivio "pirata" di tutta la ricerca moderna.

Frutto del lavoro indefesso di una donna da sola contro tutti, è un monumento al cosiddetto guerrilla #openaccess e protesta contro il #copyright moderno.

Giunti a questo punto, insomma, bisognerebbe chiedersi che cosa stiano assaltando davvero questi pirati contemporanei: i diritti d'autore o un sistema culturale …

The engineer that we work with created a very nice Ansible script that provisions our laptops with Linux Mint by PXE boot. I'm testing the first one, hopefully I'll get all of them deployed by the end of today so that people can work from home. #Covid19
