Going to just leave this here, because frankly, everyone deserves to see this lovely bike.

Anyone need a part time Vala/Python/Java/etc. desktop, web developer? Or AI/vision/robotics research assistant? I'm currently looking for some work to pay the rent while I finish off my PhD.

My CV is here:

Boosts appreciated!

So this is what I have been working on for the last few years: – the Facility itself, not just the web site. :)

Need an experiment space for HRI research? We have one of the largest and most highly instrumented in the world, and it's available for you to use.

So for a couple of years Ubuntu didn't update the packaged version of Geary so in the end it was out of date by several years, then it updated to a version that was only out of date by six months at the time, now it looks like it's going to ship an up-to-date version that is built in such a way that it won't start.

Good times!

Pretty sure the only reason most people still use mice is because PC touchpads suck so hard.

Currently on the phone to Centerlink and haha, they they just aired an on-hold interstitial humlebragging about data sharing with the ATO to find and hunt down and federal cops to hunt down "welare cheats".

So by "linking a service" to mygov, and given "services" is newspeak for a government department such as Centerlink or the ATO, it means that you're implicitly allowing these government departments to share information about you between them?

> By linking your myGov account to a Member Service, you agree that the Member Service may collect from myGov, use and disclose to myGov your personal information as set out in this privacy notice, to the extent those actions related to myGov. Member Services may have their own privacy notice that is applicable to the handling of your personal information on their records.

Am trying to work out how much of an implicit-agreeing-to-allow-all-the-govt-departments-to-share-my-data-between-them panopticon is.

Any thoughts, fediverse?

PSA: If you encounter a bug in a free software project, while it might make you feel better, complaining about it on the social internest won't get it fixed. Please, file a bug report instead.

Wondering if it's too late to get all the normies who I convinced to use Signal to use Jami instead...

Hot damn Holygram are good:

Post-punk + new wave + krautrock + shoegaze mashes my buttons harder than a game of galaga…

Bad places for project documentation:

* blog posts
* mailing list archives, public
* mailing list archives, private
* private emails
* chat logs
* commit messages
* closed tickets
* open tickets
* letters to the editor, published
* letters to the editor, unpublished
* people's heads
* cave paintings
* DNA of custom bacteria
* interstellar probes
* value of pi

Really looking forward to remembering to never have to call `Gtk.Widget.show_all` ever again.

PSA: If you regularly eat out, or think you cannot cook, I have easy to follow, easy to make recipes here:

BEFORE you get quarantined, think about what ingredients you need, and remember, fruit and veg doesn't keep indefinitely you need to actually use it or preserve it (dried, bottled, stewed and frozen, etc).
