just ftr – not that I care too much about – but I stopped playing various because of unbearable loading times. Rockstar games included.

(A bit related to new print UI)
It also doesn’t solve a use-case I had recently: and various viewers fail with this:

- Print single A6 page on A4 *to scale* ✅
- Print two A6 pages on A4 *to scale* 💥 (LibreOffice zooms in instead)

Any software can do that correctly? ? ?

Work-arounds, like manually defining borders/offsets *do* work. But why do I have to do the math myself, esp.considering that single-A6-on-A4 works perfectly to scale.

Heads up #Fediverse

@k9mail is looking for funding to maintain their popular #android mail app. #k9mail hopes to raise €1,000 p/w on #liberapay to be able to work fulltime on the project.

Just today, one of my rare contributions (that I wrote on a weekend almost 2 years ago) made it into an official release. 🎉

@downey Have you customized the styles for this instance? I'm using the advanced layout and get to fit ~4 lanes on my screen while on other instances I only get 3. Actually not sure, which I like better, but I cannot find if *I* have modified this (it looks I don't) or if it's an instance setting. You both have the same version and I'm using the same styles.

Pulseeffects is not super critical for me. But definitely nice to have.

wants to install Pulseeffects 5 which only supports , not anymore. Will this break all my audio or just make PE unusable for me unless I switch to PW completely? (I do have libpipewire already, but rely on PA for everything so far)

Has anyone created JSON settings for Visual Studio @code tasks that involve running an @eleven_ty build? I am especially interested in typical build failure/success strings I could use. So if anyone would like to share, I’m all ears.

After (too) many years I really have to replace my OnePlus 3 this year. I have no idea what to buy. The recent OnePlus models have dropped their Facebook bloatware, right? It's the rare occasion every couple of years when I wish I could just go with the latest 🍏 iSomething and just don't care.

After #ArchLinux's recent (400 package) update the UI in #obsstudio looked a bit off. Turned out, my global scaling (via #GNOME settings) was at 99% which OBS can't handle well. Not sure who set it that way (me? :blobfoxshocked:), but going back to 100% fixed it. #Streaming #linux

…speaking of LibreOffice.

I’m pretty happy with my VSCodium → Markdown → pandoc → OpenDocument → PDF pipeline to format various versions of my hobby book project with a single command (Makefile) 🙈

LibreOffice/OpenOffice support 

Seems there is no way to have a newline between a headline number an the headline text – if you don’t want to do it automatically, but with the formatting/styles features. If you have something, tell me. I’ve seen the top search results on the forums, stackoverflow etc. 🤔

btw, I’m really torn on the /#AWS/#SSPL controversy. I know I lean towards the "radical foss" side of things, but yeah, that one is really tricky. Many shades of gray. In the end it all boils down to f’ing capitalism anyway – again 😔

Und wieder mal stellt sich das Fediverse als die bessere Diskussionplattform dar. Wo unter einem interessanten Link auf Twitter nur Polemik und zwei, drei halbgare Kommentare folgten, entwickelte sich hier zum gleichen Thema ein sinnvoller Thread.

(ja, is’n subtoot; thema egal. hab an beiden threads nicht teilgenommen, weil müde.)

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
