For people looking for an alternative to Facebook events that isn't spammy like evite and the like, I recommend checking out gath.io

It requires no login, basically you provide an email address, you get a unique editing URL, you make a nice looking event form, and people can RSVP there. Your event and all related info is deleted from their DB 2 weeks after the event is over.

I hope this will extend and I won't need to see a light color scheme ever again.

Tengo un proyecto en marcha que se llama "pengarna". Parece un nombre interesante, enigmático. Pero lo he elegido porque significa "LOH DINEROH" en sueco.

TIL about "galactic algorithms", algorithms only reasonably applicable for datasets that are too large for our planet.

Oh, no, 'Linux' is just one part of the operating system. The whole package that you're thinking of is actually called GNU's Monster.

"The specification had provisions for reporting whether the floppy drive door was open, but IBM didn’t implement that part of the specification because it saved them a NAND gate."

"Mark Zbikowski led the MS-DOS 2.0 project, and he sat down with a stopwatch while Aaron Reynolds and Chris Peters tried to swap floppy disks on an IBM PC as fast as they could.

They couldn’t do it under two seconds.

So the MS-DOS cache validity was set to two seconds."

¿Hay alguien en Granada interesado en matricularse en un curso de sueco de nivel cero en el Centro de Lenguas Modernas? Faltan al menos dos personas para que salga grupo :(
Se agradecen los retoots.

So about #TabCenterReborn, I’m currently working on what I like to call «Tab Center Quantum». The idea is to rewrite some parts independently to experiment and see what could be integrated back easily:

– Redo CSS so that it’s easier to maintain and easier for users to change/extend, and also shorter and more performant
– Make animations more fluid (use requestAnimationFrame, better use of IntersectionObserver, etc.)

Hi!

I’m a 24 years old trans woman in tech.

I’m doing Rust, Python, but mostly JavaScript/HTML/CSS these days; I also often (help) translate projects from English to French and sometimes Esperanto (like Mastodon and Tusky).

My main project currently is Tab Center Reborn, a Firefox extension to display tabs on the side:
addons.mozilla.org/firefox/add

I have a Liberapay to continue working on Free Software projects without running out of money:
