Gnome and GTK not allowing theming is just Red Hat's attempt to crush their biggest competitor: Hannah Montana Linux

Probably should have made a burner email address for all the "we buy your car" sites, I'm going to get spammed to shit for the next few weeks.

Anyone want to buy a car?

I don't know why my brain has decided that what it really needs to relax is to watch the full coverage of last year's 24 Hours of Le Mans, but here I am, eleven hours in...

I can't move to the Fediverse properly until I reproduce my famous pinned post from the birdsite, so here it is:

P.S.A. To all vintage computer and video game collectors:

Go through your collections and GET THE DAMN BATTERIES OUT!

Now! Don't wait! Seriously, put down the phone, go to your collection and take out all the batteries. Right now! Even if they look "okay" they are NOT SAFE after this much time.

FOSS elitism 

As a non-Adobe user, and a non-O365 user, I would welcome both popular software sets onto the Linux desktop space.

If nothing else, imagine the software centers showing folks the proprietary Adobe, and then next to it, the FOSS editors which won't charge them monthly. Imagine the new possibilities for discovery, right there!

FOSS elitism 

I've seen some criticisms of proprietary software in Flathub/Snap/etc.

I get it- I prefer to use FOSS when possible, too. But if making popular tools available increases adoption, in my opinion, that only helps the community grow in the long run.

I can't tell you how many comments I've read saying "I'd use Linux if not for Adobe". If Adobe joined Flathub, it'd bring **some** folks in. They could discover FOSS alternatives after a bit. Linux would grow! That's good!

If you could transform into any animal on earth for one day, what sort of housecat would you be?

Absolutely wild haul from the charity shop this morning. A bunch of CDs, some vinyl, a cassette!!, some Discworld paperbacks and even a PS2 game. Even that was me stopping myself before I got *too* carried away.

Are there any Masto accounts like CompAesthetics on Twitter?

I want to see pictures of random people's nerd setups.

Hah! I knew if I was lazy enough, for long enough, eventually Google would relent and let me use G-Suite Legacy for free!

Blockhaus day at the Giro and this climb is RELENTLESS. My knees hurt just watching it.

landlord and landlady are needlessly gendered words! please be more inclusive by saying "target practice" instead

Stablecoin is collapsing? How am I supposed to pay my horses now???

Absolutely flew threw the Guardian quick crossword this afternoon. I don't remember the last time I finished it without any reveals (I usually need one or two, at least). Cryptics can still fuck off tho.

I was looking for an old photo of something else and came across this gem from a holiday a few years ago, in a pub we had dinner in

name for a sync program that does everything 

kitchen sync

Self care tip: take some time to enjoy the schadenfreude of the NFT market collapsing

That green Alpecin-Fenix kit is pretty mint* IMO.

(*I'm so sorry for that terrible pun.)


Genuinely happy to see so many of my local council wards flipping from Conservative to Labour. Only a third of the council is up for re-election so changing overall control was never realistically on the cards, but with a couple of marginal wards left to declare Labour have already taken a massive chunk out of the Tory majority.
