I'm actively recruiting volunteer devs for a native Signal / Signal-like client in Gtk, in the hopes that we can bring it to the @Purism Librem 5 phone. Please contact sean.obrien@puri.sm if interested.

@skalman Example HTML file:

<link href="style.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">
<div class="menu">
This is the menu.
<li>This is the item.
This is the rest of the page.

Example style.css file:

.menu ul { display: none }
.menu:hover ul { display: block }

@skalman Then I think you will need a bit of Javascript (which is what I have at the top of the page), or some CSS that works with the :hover pseudoclass.

@bobstechsite Hah, that explains why I have all the websites zoomed in to 133% on my laptop!

The way you do the "fix high DPI" bit is a two step process:

a) Open Gnome-tweak-tool, then head to "Fonts" and change the scaling factor

b) Firefox doesn't seem to pay any attention to this, so you fix it by typing "about:config" in the nav bar, search for "layout.css.devPixelsPerPx" and then change it to a positive value.

I've gone with 1.3 for both values on this laptop to avoid eye strain πŸ™‚

@applecandy 😳
The sad part about growing older is seeing how these ailments spread among friends and family (and ourselves) and knowing that this will never end: eventually, these things are going to grind us down. Living and enjoying our remaining days to the max is what it’s all about. Perhaps that includes cigarettes… after all, coffee and alcohol are pretty dangerous, too.

@applecandy I’m just shocked this all taking so long. Hopefully they already determined what kind it is and know that it’s a slow grower. For my wife, it was done in a matter of days, and when we went to the chemo hospital they didn’t want to fix a day, they wanted her to start right away, no waiting.

@skalman I can talk more about the thing I wrote here: alexschroeder.ch/wiki/2018-10-
Scroll down to the comments where I mention @tomasino and link to his code example. Personally, these days I look up all the web stuff on MDN. developer.mozilla.org/en-US/do

@applecandy Well, it was horrible but now it’s done. Next step: waiting for the results? Or did you get a doctor to look at them right away? Here in Switzerland they usually won’t comment until you doc gets to see them, so more waiting. πŸ§˜β€β™€οΈ

The font, the colours, everything is great and old school about this website. midi-france.info/030404_collio
And Collioure is great, too. I have vague memories of eating sea fruit at L'Amphitryon. I think there must be a pub here where Picasso and others paid by leaving paintings but I don't remember it, now. All these memories, lost.

@rpcutts @lupine Another point to make would be legal standing. The FSF also wants copyright assignments. In exchange, they grant you all the rights back, but the important part is that they can now go to court with your code because you assigned copyright. Otherwise they would have to go to court with all the contributors which is probably unfeasible.

Only by providing a counter-narrative, which also deals with the constant burning future shock people are feeling - we can make other perspectives and futures possible.

If you won't create a narrative explaining why you did something, someone else will supply theirs.

No matter how good the software created by the engineers is, no matter how much work the activists put in, the public needs storytellers to tell them why it's important as well.


Sitting at home reading Mastodon and wondering whether I should wait for the sun to rise – and then I realize it’s winter in Switzerland and the sky is grey and it’s already 8:30 and that’s probably as bright as it will get. 😩☁️☁️🌧☁️☁️
