Noticed XXIIVV was loading header images kind of slow on older devices, changes the function that analyzes the average color of the header and the whole site feels so much smoother now, on all devices.

Regarding "open source" versus "free software"... I understand the distinction deeply, but I think being strict on the terminology weakens the free software argument. Pendantry turns people off. On the other hand, using the terms interchangably while pushing a free software philosophy does a much better job at weakening "open source". It puts the principles first and the terminology last. Principles are compelling, pendantry is not.

I am about to move to Warsaw before the end of August. I'm looking for a job, starting remotely for up to one month. I have some professional experience but not much. Eager to work on anything, systems programming, Android apps, web application backends... whatever. B2B preferred.

I tried dev build of VCVRack 1.0 and it's sooo good 馃挌

She summoned and bound a demon, to demand an answer:
"What is magic?"
"You sum-"
"This is not magic."
"No," the demon admitted, "this is mechanics. Magic is transformation."
"Like lead to gold?"
"Any guided change. Knitting, smithing - all magic."
"I can do magic?"
"You know it."

Damn, I need e-book reader. I'v got a lot of books about astrodynamics I'd like to read but reading on computer is not really comfortable.

"There are two ways of constructing a software design: One way is to make it so simple that there are obviously no deficiencies, and the other way is to make it so complicated that there are no obvious deficiencies."

- C. A. R. Hoare (Turing award winner) has very snappy UI and great performance but unfortunately there are frequent outages

I wish PWA's had got more popular and 95% of apps just die.

Reading about a current submission contest for artwork in Open Source land and remember, yet again - why you never ever ever do that.

Nothing, absolutely NOTHING good comes from it. It doesn't improve community relations, it never creates new contributors in the long run and at the very least you'll get people disappointed and some times toxic as well.

What it does do is prove over and over that "Criticism" is a skill, and a skill seldomly possessed by computer enthusiasts.

boutique handheld discourse has me really wishing there was a homebrew platform that excelled at:
- cheap, widely available, open (as much as possible) hardware
- SDK + simulator that runs on anything
- large community of people hacking on it & sharing knowledge
- diverse, welcoming culture that views games as an art form, doesn't care about the boundary between "game" and other stuff
