Best software I’ve developed so far is a digital board game implementation.

1. Clear requirements (make the game, by this rule book).
2. Aside from minor UI quirks it’s practically bug-free. All reports of the last 2yrs have been closed (not by me) with: “Nope, *you* read the rules wrong.”

We're very excited (and a little bit nervous :D) that @FOSDEM@twitter.com is planning to go virtual this year via Matrix for chat/community, using @jitsinews@twitter.com for the video conferencing. Read all about it (and how you might be able to help!): matrix.org/blog/2021/01/04/tak

So, ich habe also aus Versehen #StarWars #Fanfiction geschrieben… to publish or not to publish? 🤔

These are marine grade eye bolts (used to attach lines and such to boats) and they're the closest I could find to switch guards that aren't actual switch guards

I still need to find a smaller size than this (which may work as a guard for something else)

And I need to convince a supplier to sell me a few hundred of them for the same price as a sack of potatoes

I've always loved the aesthetics of these panel mounted switch guards, but I could never find the proper term for them

I guess "switch guards" were what they're called, but good luck finding anything relevant now that the Nintendo Switch is out

But it occurred to me that I can still use those tiny u-bolts used to hold down pipes, cables etc... They're not rated for heavy loads, but can handle switch guard duty just fine. Bonus: They're cheaper than guards

Yes, this is for side project No.8862

I am curious. What do you do with your Laptop at the end of the day?

If you do something else, please reply. Boosts appreciated.

Sick at home. Binge watching lectures on quantum and on the verge of writing another digital board game implementation. Is that what I'd do, if I wasn't trapped in the rat race?

"So, with #CentOS #Linux shifting direction from a downstream project to an upstream platform, what are your options?

You can opt for #openSUSE, #Debian, #Ubuntu or maybe another #RHEL fork by the original CentOS creator?

Yes, that is what #Rocky Linux is all about!"

And - BANG - it forked. Oh how I love #FLOSS...

Prediction: #Cyberpunk2077 Metascore ~89.

Slightly related note: which game will be the first to break the "Next gen consoles, no more loading times!!" honeymoon? #PS5 #XboxSeriesX

Wes Bos’ Cobalt2 editor and syntax highlighting color theme has been my favorite for the last couple of years; dark, with good contrast, and still easy-on-the-eyes.

He’s working on some improvements now, e.g. the not-so-ideal search highlight vs. current-selection situation.

Any experts in , , , want to chime in?
