@tromino Read the article. A file picker has one job, and it's to be able to search and pick a file. I an unable to find pictures with it. Arguing about this is like arguing with my sister that no, the toilets aren't fine, it fails and it's basic job.

@tromino Imagine a file picker that didn't list the file names, only its creation dates.

Imagine having to deal with pungent sewage smell every time brushing your teeth.

GNOME has no thumbnails in the file picker (and my toilets are blocked) - new post on my website jayfax.neocities.org/mediocrit

Still thinking about that time Gordon Brown had his microphone left on and called a woman a bigot.

@Gargron @angristan America has a really bad case of NIH syndrome. Even their liberals would never accept a European technology company having prominence. Hence why Tiktok had to make so many concessions and move their HQ to the USA.

@angristan I’ve seen a couple of these “I want to build a Twitter alternative” people pop up in the last few days and what unites them is that they’re not interested in hearing the problem’s already been solved

@luke I suppose this video kinda brings into question "The Bugman Paradox." Are you really averting being a bugman by uprooting from where you live and spent the longest time...

Has the word "landline" dropped out of the English language? I see people awkwardly call it the "home phone" or something similar.

Chris Patten (last British govenor of Hong Kong) on the recent mass arrests.

I really like how clear his writing style is. I guess imperial governors can afford to cut out doublespeak, unlike active politicians. hongkongwatch.org/all-posts/20

@gopiandcode I call everything on the fediverse a "tweet" and no one is stopping me.

@kindzmb I don't know much about it, but years ago I used to be involved in the Freedomain Radio community (when Stefan Molyneux was ancap) and MMT became pretty popular discussion topic in the chatrooms.

Imagine working overtime shifts & coming home to a microwaved dinner & a fat son who can only talk about Minecraft Youtubers.

"Sex" is too narrow and ambiguous of a word and the education people need is far more broad than it.

Not saying this as a joke, I actually have reason for this suggestion, but I think "sex education" should really just be called "horny management"

@luke Are there any command line thesauruses nowadays.

Very bad ruling re #Assange and press freedom. The fact his extradition to the U.S. was ONLY rejected on mental health grounds and not PRIMARILY on press freedom grounds is absolute bs.

I hope it's not a way for this judge to shake the case just so that SHE doesn't go down in history books as have made the decision to extradite him, but that the U.S. hope is the higher court will reject the health grounds as she pretty much sided with the U.S. on the actual merits of the case.
