I get that some people think there's a certain "responsibility" with Eugen since he is the main developer and decides a lot for us

BUT...

Again, #Mastodon is open source and YOU can make your own copy or so called "fork". Stop complaining and start learning how to improve YOUR version of Mastodon..

If you want new things or changes be KIND about it, I totally get when Eugen says no after a shitload of complaints.

C'mon people, respect the guy for his work..

Convert string to uppercase in bash?

Easy:

echo "I am a string" | tr '[:lower:]' '[:upper:]'

What about Unicode?

echo "jalapeño" | tr '[:lower:]' '[:upper:]' doesn't work:

JALAPEñO

Solution: use the Unicode::Tussle library (metacpan.org/pod/Unicode::Tuss)

echo jalapeño | uc

JALAPEÑO

There is also lc and tc (lower case, title case).

But beware of some edge cases. For instance Greek sigma (Σ) has two lowercase variants depending on position of the letter in a word - but lc doesn't know about it

GIMP stands for GNU Image Manipulation Program and GNU stands for GNU’s Not UNIX and UNIX stands for Uniplexed Information and Computing Service so the full proper name for GIMP is actually:

GNU’s Not Uniplexed Information and Computing Service Image Manipulation Program

Just finished making this little isometric mini world in #Krita. Been wanting to try this for a while. Made up of photos from Unsplash.

Krita is really, really good for photo editing / manipulation. Non destructive adjustments, perspective warping, easy clipping and masking. Sometimes a little laggy, but a legit alternative to Photoshop.

The human brain is awesome.
It functions 24 hours a day from the day you were born and only stops when you take an exam or fall in love.

If you post images in Mastodon, you can make them more accessible to blind or partially-sighted people by adding a text description.

After you've attached the image, click "Edit" and write the description, then click "Apply".

If there's text in the image, you can use Mastodon's text recognition system to convert it into a description by clicking "Detect text from picture". (The system isn't perfect, and you may need to tweak the text.)

I feel like someone at Microsoft is watching KDE Plasma a little bit too closely...

Plasma's slogan since 2017: "Simple by default, powerful when needed"

Microsoft advertising Windows 11: "Simple by default, powerful by choice"

Really? 🤔
