Cake day: Mar 23, 2020


At least public transportation is still faster than anything else in my city. Made the mistake of taking a taxi last week, literally driving on an empty road getting passed by the transit system got me frustrated 😭

It’s a guilty pleasure knowing everyone in a car feels that way on the daily

Looks like Western propaganda has been effective!

snap/ folder in the home directory is so disrespectful. I absolutely despise these apps that think they’re “too good” to follow proper xdg standard

The sandboxing issue is actually an important one that is being figured out at the xdg-protocol level. It affects Snaps, Flatpak, and any future goal of being able to run user-space apps in an environment more like Android or iOS, where it prompts a permission asking to access certain files/folders/cameras/etc on your device.

(If you don’t like that idea, don’t worry I’m sure you’re not alone and there will always be distros that follow the current status quo of “give everything”, but it’s a cool feature to have)

They broadcast all their notifications with priority set to 0, which overrides Do Not Disturb and custom notification filter settings.

Put less kindly, the developers are arrogant fucks. This reason alone is enough for me to package apps on Flathub.org.

(Play Runescape? Check out the 2009 emulation available as a Flatpak!)

It’s true, if something is closed source there’s no way to verify it’s secure, and if it’s not secure, it’s not private.

I would have switched to Vivaldi years ago if the whole thing was open source, but there’s no way in good consciousness I can support a closed source browser

You know all the laws of France, and know you haven’t broken them? Damn, I’ll call you instead of a lawyer next time

People were recommending SimpleX as an alternative messenger that’s encrypted-by-default, but falls back to SMS when the other person doesn’t have it

If people didn’t like it they would downvote it

Noo I wish I went to a tournament though! Even if you can do sub60 you can compete in most. I’ve done tournaments for other activities though, I highly recommend you give it a shot

“Things developed for X11 aren’t working on Wayland” is different than “New things seem to be better on Wayland”

Red Alert and Battle for Middle-Earth both have amazing community run servers nowdays

What are you glad you did before you died?
"debated more NATO shills/tankies on Lemmy" probably won't be on that list

Snap actually sucks. This isn't even a meme.
Upgraded Ubuntu to 22.04, where Firefox is Snap by default. Wasn't going to fight it, especially since Canonical has made 3 blog posts talking about how much faster they made Firefox on Snap. Since then, I've had subtle but annoying issues. * Can't Google things that have a colon after the first word- i.e. `error: file not found` doesn't work * I get *notifications* for pending updates * Other apps like Gnome's Software take a minute+ to load on my beefy computer This isn't even a meme. Snap is trash. I wanted to be neutral and not join the "hate train" but seriously. Snap is that bad.

Anyone else enjoying the higher gas prices?
Less people can afford to drive is a long term catalyst for making sustainable cities. A surprise, but a welcome one! (Yes, buses and subways use gas, but not as much as 12 individual cars going to the same location)
