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. Piracy is wrong.


@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.

how did we ever let a situation happen where there was simultaneously a company called Oracle and a product called Delphi and they had nothing at all to do with each other.
we failed as an industry.

Having a tough time using Microsoft's Accessibility Insights tool because the overlay text it draws doesn't respect the screen DPI, so it's too small for me to read.
amazing. beautiful. transcendent. 10/10. no notes.

Who would win: decades of science not caring about us and being woefully underfunded to the point that the results of most studies are inconclusive

It isn't supposed to be? But last I heard, Windows decides which one to use based on how the drive it was installed from was booted, so it's not easy to predict and it _is_ easy to get the wrong thing accidentally.

@hazelnot @AgathaSorceress
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.

Hacker News comment:

> The trans programming community is strange and interesting, also many of them seem to be in a polyamorous relationship with each other. [..] almost intimidating from the outside

I've been working with my colleague 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

there's too many pokemon these days. it's overwhelming. the next game really should just get rid of half of them.
like some kind of pokemon snap.
