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.

Ooh Link's Awakening is out in September. I might have finished Breath of the Wild by then!

Finally fixed a bug in my DVD ripping wizard that made certain discs unrippable. It turns out that not all DVDs have one of the titles (either the main feature or "Play all") tagged as the "main" title, which I was heavily reliant on.

There were no @LibDems standing for Bicester town council today, which was a shame, considering the neighbouring constituency has @LaylaMoran as an MP.

The saving grace of having a long drive to work is that I get to practice singing a lot. I think I'm at the point where I'd like other people to hear it, so I'm going to share some rough demos I've recorded recently. Sometimes over me playing bass, sometimes karaoke-style.

Listed some items on ebay, which now defaults to 'auction or best offer'. I'm getting lots of offers and no bids, so its essentially a blind auction. Not convinced this is better for either side.
