captcha seriously needs to die. I can't claim a game on GOG right now because the page "times out" while I'm busy taking a 10 minute long captcha quiz

@danrabbit Reading the update blog for the Juno update, Code sounds absolutely amazing after all that work. Congrats to the ElementaryOS team on a great sounding release! I'll have to take another look at it in the near future.

Just discovered Krename. I love how whenever I hit a problem that needs a solution, it usually already exists in Linux and it's just a matter of the correct search terms to find it.

@kde I decided to check out the Kontact software suite because the recent Thunderbird update broke all my calendars. It looks like a nice piece of software, however I find the GUI very unintuitive and a mess to navigate. It also did not play well with the Gnome environment on POP!_OS. There may very well be a bunch of options to configure it exactly to my liking but it's very overwhelming. That being said Kmail was the only email client other than Thunderbird that could handle 2FA on a gmail.

There's a lot of customer culture attitude in Mastodon-the-community, where people treat Gargron and other devs, the instance admins, moderators, etc. like service workers. It's a spoiled, entitled attitude, where "the customer is always right" and it's okay to be abusive or demeaning to people providing a service when they don't give you what you want.

The fediverse isn't a corporate model. When you're rude or demeaning to someone here, you're being abusive to volunteers building a playground
