someone made a very pretty #transgender firefox icon. I shared it in the pride channel at work, and someone was like "OMG would totally change my icon if i could" and i was like... "You can!" but it required a few steps of prep (like making an icns file of it).

Thank goodness, hopefully this will prevent people learning that Sci-Hub which hosts 85 million scientific research papers. Absolutely do not search Google for sci-hub to gain access to 85 million scientific research papers for free. Don't retweet this.

@lmorchard I mean, I feel like I'm pretty comfortable with C++, and that is also the strategy I use when I am in this situation. So, yeah.
You only get the nice list in the BIOS if everything using UEFI to boot (because it's really just a list of all the UEFI bootloaders you have; those are just files in a designated partition, so there can be any number of them at once), so maybe something doing BIOS boot could be the issue?
I haven't had the problem with the Windows installer clobbering other bootloaders since I switched to UEFI everywhere, but before then I could _absolutely_ count on that happening.
dog help me, I've published a PowerShell module.
the good news is, it's only useful for people who a) work on Firefox and/or other Gecko apps, and b) want to do so from PowerShell and not any other shell.
which means the entire audience is almost certainly me.
I've been working with my colleague @email@example.com on making some Mozilla stuff more screenreader friendly, and he's just the absolute greatest. It's great to see him being featured here as one of the creators of NVDA!
I say this sincerely, and as someone who appreciates and develops open source software: one advantage to making your social media platform closed source is that it's not immediately overrun with people posting about free open source software.
It honestly might be a better move to start closed source, grow your user base, and *then* make it open source so the FLOSS nerds you attract can't overwhelm the platform
