Exploring System76's New Rust Based Desktop Environment
@deletescape Sad but true. I knew that Firefox was being, (mostly) funded by Google to prevent Chrome having the same antitrust problems as iExplorer but I didn't notice that Mozilla had turned into a zombie with an over paid head that barely cares about the foundation until I had to port all of my add-ons to Firefox57 and found that I could mostly just clone the Chrome extensions that I'd written. [I'm glad that Mozilla could spawn Rust with its dying breath.]
Is there something similar to https://trends.google.com/ but for twitter? I'm looking to get the frequency of a specific word/subject over the years
From Aaron's mom:
Idk why Aaron's incident make me so mad.
Maybe because he was working for the greatest good. Maybe because Aaron saw people who didn't have access to the resources (like the past me) despite being always privileged himself.
Aaron's story shows what happens when the stupid take power.
My country has been occupied by the stupid for the past 40 years now.
My friend Ruben has an uncle who's an artist / philosopher / inventor, and he just made this painting titled "Twelve Words" 😏

This is some background info on std::chrono:
At 27:00 there's a hint that one could handle overflows by just using a safeint type:
I don't think it's as simple as this slide hints: what are you going to do? Throw an exception at runtime? Saturate to the maximum representable value? Call abort()?
Constants that will certainly overflow should result in a compile-time error, just like in this case:
We all know that C++ inherited unsafe semantics from C, but one would expect modern library features such as std::chrono to be carefully designed to avoid the old integer conversion bugs... right?
Not the case: it's very easy to silently cause truncation or overflow in correct-looking code, such as:
Nate Graham has already published his #KDE Roadmap for 2022:
Perhaps it's a bit unambitious, but all the listed goals seem reasonable and desirable changes.
Personally, I would have wanted to see a push for HDR video playback in #Wayland.
Finally #KDE #Plasma 5.24 will default to deep color (30bpp) also in #Wayland:
