Oh, I get it, it's called "Zoom" because that's what the camera does when someone can't see you changing your clothes from across the room.

If you've started following me because of the "patches carved in developer sigchains" article but are not sure about SSB, this is a good write-up that will let you wrap your head around it:

@write_as Hmm... it would appear that 0.10.0 is still not supporting language-c (though I believe it was supposed to start supporting it). people.kernel.org/brauner/andr

Kinda mad at Niantic for not releasing WU un Canada. I mean, the population here is less than that of the state of California, so what's the point of excluding it from the roll-out? Hrmph.

Pro tip: don't put things in your resume that you don't quite understand. Case in point: "transitioned from the Nginx server to a VPN." Wat? Wat?

Hmm... I posted this: people.kernel.org/monsieuricon but I don't see it in my Home timeline on floss.social. Is federation between people.kernel.org and floss.social working? @downey @write_as

Newer AF-P lenses required applying a firmware update to my Nikon-D5300 in order for it to be fully compatible. Imagine my dismay when the only download options were "Windows" or "Mac". Thankfully, the .exe's are just RAR self-extract archives that can be handled with "unrar -e", and the actual procedure is copying those .bin blobs to the removable media. Quite relieved that I didn't have to go scouring my backups for the ancient Windows VM.

Okay, well, I bought a VR-stabilizing lens and a colour-calibrated monitor. The total came in under a $1,000 CAD, but I feel like I should eat some ramen for a few days.

Hey #darktable users : since september 2018, I have added 14050 lines of code in darktable's core, being the 2nd most productive dev for 2018/2019, and father of filmic, color balance v2 and the new UI design, in addition of providing doc, tutos, advice and various bugfixes. I'm working full time on more cool projects (modules and R&D), but I'm still paid way below minimal wage. If you can spare a few €, you can help me to help you long-term : liberapay.com/aurelienpierre/

Seriously, though, who can drop $6,000 on just the camera body? And even something that costs closer to $2,000 -- it's not the kind of thing I'd pull out at my kid's baseball game for the fear of getting brick dust into it and then spending another $500 on cleaning fees.

When you're into portrait photography and you look up "best cameras and lenses for taking portraits" ... and then look at those prices and decide to stick with your D5300 after all because hey, it's just a hobby.

Some kernel developers now have their blogs hosted on people.kernel.org, which is a WriteFreely instance with ActivityPub syndication. For example, try out @gregkh.

@write_as I noticed that code highlighting doesn't work on people.kernel.org/brauner/andr -- is there a missing JS include for that? Also, vertical spacing is a bit large on code blocks. Is that something I can tweak on my own via the admin interface?
