Time for my annual #FOSDEM buzzkill: this conference is still sponsored by Google and Amazon, both of which technically contribute to open source software, but ultimately make money by locking people into their respective ecosystems, effectively reducing software diversity. Both are driven by capitalist motives, which is not what a conference for free software should be about. I wish the open source community was more critical of these things.

A coworker of mine recently asked me what I think would be a good first ergonomic mechanical keyboard.

Oh boy, he barely anticipated what he had done ... huehuehuehuehuehuehueclickclack

pffft. got it:
1. rotate screen to "inverted" using the raspbian gui preferences>screen configuration
2. in /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/40-libinput.conf look for the Section "InputClass" that identifies with "libinput touchscreen catchall" and add "Option "TransformationMatrix" "-1 0 1 0 -1 1 0 0 1"

no wonder all forum entries are only about complaining.

Is anyone here using #alpine #linux as a daily driver? Maybe on their #Pi4? I'm wondering if I should use my spare Pi as a computer with a wireless keyboard and mouse.

Not sure what the point would be, it just sounds cool 😂


The most annoying thing about macOS is the fact you cannot change the way you have to allow unsigned apps from running.

Everytime I upgrade Chromium via `brew`, I have to open the Security & Privacy settings pane and manually click on the "Open Anyways" button to be able to launch it.

Apple, I know what I am doing, please let me configure this somehow!

Just one of many little annoying things why I regret having a Macbook as work machine.

Using the :target selector to show and hide contents for navigation purpose. Cool!

"Don't use functions as callbacks unless they're designed for it" by Jake Archibald

Solid advice. It's way too easy to try to be clever by removing characters, but you end up making your code less resilient. (And less readable too IMO.)

You are working with Github?
You are using the terminal for most of your work?

I recommend you to try out Githubs official CLI client. It is quiet cool! The fact of creating PRs without switching from the terminal is awesome (especially as neovim user :P)

I'm looking for a tool that can produce high resolution images of websites. I've found webkit2png, but it's not working and is been unmaintained for 6 years.

After 15 years using UNIX-based operating systems, I might consider using tmux the first time productively. :D

Interesting article about the history of some watches which where the inspiration for some Apple Watch watchfaces.

This XKCD is over 10 years old. And somehow nothing changed. Nothing at all.
