In case you missed it, this December GTK blog from Emmanuele reflects on the incredible amount of work hundreds of contributors put into GTK 4.0 over the last four years. blog.gtk.org/2020/12/17/who-wr

I got a first draft of a teaser for the audiodramas I've been enjoying! Uploaded to: adrian.geek.nz/audiodrama-teas

I'm not really sure what I'm doing... Currently 11 minutes long.

@ajroach42

Currently I'm looking for some good laughter to represent The Red Panda Adventures... What fraction of that show is laughter?

I've already got good snippets for:
* ars Paradoxica
* Black Jack Justice
* The Bright Sessions
* Magus Elgar
* Old Gods of Appalachia
* Welcome to Night Vale
* & Wolf359

I think this'll be enough to form a good teaser!

Leave it to JS if you actually want floats I guess.

Because I like making Massive Markdown Tables of Shit, I made a massive markdown table of various tasks and suitedness, as well as some physical characteristics, of different computing / electronic devices: desktops, laptops, tablets, mobile, ebook readers, embedded/dedicated devices, servers, cloud.

O.K., I'll expand on that clarification here.

Error recovery in CSS simply involves ignoring anything I don't (yet?) support. It's trivial! I've implemented it!

WHATWG justified HTML error correction by referring to CSS, but WHATWG HTML's rules differ for the different elements. There's not that many implementations which gets it standards-compliant.

Instead the HTML parser I use has a simpler approach that works perfectly fine on most existing pages. No need for WHATWG's complexity!

A super-talented artist by the name of Stéphane Richard (known previously as Wootha) dropped a bunch of their work into the public domain.

How much?

OVER 90 GIGS. THEIR LIFE'S WORK.

I just updated rhapsode.adrian.geek.nz/2021/0

Mostly spelling corrections, but I also added a few more links (also to rhapsode.adrian.geek.nz/2020/1 ) & clarifications. I was looking for link on that first blogpost to backup my voice assistants are considered cool!

e.g. I clarified that I'm not opposed to error recovery in HTML, I just don't think the complexity in WHATWG's standard is justified

FYI You probably won't hear much from me this week, starting tomorrow. I've got a business trip.

I'll tell you how it went on Friday!

Starting ISP 

@fikran you'd need to either connect to an IP exchange (likely expensive) or use a large bandwidth connection and build a network of there like nycmesh or guifi net using a combination of long range wireless and cable

Starting ISP 

I do not plan to start my own ISP, but hypothetically if I wanted to in a rural area, how would one do that?

Where do you run fiber from? I understand you can off existing infrastructure?

Just curious how one would do this.

GNOME OS is so useful for so many things. I can test a future version of apps that depend on newer versions of system libraries (like gnome-online-accounts) without any sort of friction. I just have to run GNOME OS in a VM.

@brainblasted I experience the exact same thing when developing web browsers!

Pain point of contributing to a Music app: you end up not wanting to restart the app when you start playing a good song.
