remember that you should keep your important floppy disks on the fridge with a magnet so you don't forget where they are.

I'm going to go out on a tums overdose

An AUR package installed rust and now I just got served with a notice making me pay into a superfund for hazardous waste cleanup around my computer?!?!?

Qt is turning out to be really nice to work with, at least in Go. The hierarchical layouts nesting nicely, the way to connect buttons and such together, it's all very intuitive so far. The way it pretty much automatically lays out everything how I want it with minimal micromanaging is pretty great too. I'm sure the instant you wanted to do something non-standard it'd be a hellish nightmare, but for a standard-ish structure it works great.

Please can we stop depending on Google Summer of Code to develop good FOSS?
Or at least do not celebrate it?

there is something very funny about a bespectacled modest-attire-adjacent mousy lady playing Amazing Grace contemplatively on a harp and then a string breaks and she startles and quietly says "Fuck"

Rant 

Jesus Christ no wonder people dislike reading manpages on Linux

I just tried to look up some top flags on Debian and it spat out an entire novel containing an explanation of memory types on Linux, some cool tricks you can do with top, a table of *bibyte to byte conversions, and more in an essay-like format

This isn't good documentation. If I want this stuff I'll look it up on a blog or "Debian Sysadmin Guide" or something like that. When I look at your manpage, I don't need you to explain to me how memory works in Linux, I need to you to explain to me how to use your damn tool.

Got Qt's Go bindings installed. Pretty much the same as using Qt regularly, really convenient because it pretty much exactly matches the docs, no need to switch back and forth to try to figure out what things are named.

I just threw together a basic widget layout, I was going to learn QML but it's a bit overkill and I really want to get going on getting dithering working rather than fiddling with Qt.

Also, please just stop trying to do domain validation. There are more TLDs than your shitty library is aware of :meowUnamused:

if linux really starts using rust in its kernel, then I'm totally going to switch to bsd

The final result is:

* R = 25%
* G = 40%
* B = 36%

As expected (and described in the thread), the gamut is pretty low (ie. not an immense possibility of colours, due to fact that masto polls options sum is 100)

0..100 to 0..255 (in gimp) give:

* R = 63.8 (64)
* G = 102
* B = 91.8 (92)

HTML: #40665C

It's a soft, dark, bluish green!

It's complimentary color is #66404A (102,64,74)

Its triadic scheme:
#5C4066 (92,64,102) and #665C40 (102,92,64)

We could call it "Fédi-vert"?

Hey, ignore people who tell you things you make "aren't art". It's gatekeeping

Did you wish to express an idea or emotion? Did you take a transformative action in the process? Congratulations! You made An Art!

We can all decide if we like it or not. We can try to figure out if it's Good. We can debate whether it belongs in galleries and museums. But it is most definitely art.
