4.16 RC1 has been out for a while now and a few days ago André Miranda put together a blog post about what's new with the upcoming release [1]

He also mentions the Xfce:rat repository where we build a daily snapshot of Xfce git main for testing purposes and in the time since the release we've also put together a Xfce:next repository to test the RC itself [2]

Introduction, sort of long 

Hi, I'm tux93 which is a very creative name I gave myself when starting to dabble in ( 11.2 to be more preciese) back when I was 16.

The name stuck and nowdays I spend my free time maintaining a hand full of packages on the Open Build Service and working in tech support for my dayjob.

Aside from that I like to dabble in although I recently rarely got around to the editing part which has lead to quite a backlog...

why do programmers prefer dark mode 

because light attracts bugs

reject modernity (Electron)

Look, if you're "introducing Ansible" by writing a playbook that uses command/shell to unconditionally call some old bash scripts, you didn't introduce Ansible, you introduced a monster that is still not idempotent but now even harder to debug and use. Please don't!

The new European Citizens' Initiative for Unconditional Basic Income has been launched. It will be examined by the commission if one million citizens support it, so I invite you to sign it and share it: eci.ec.europa.eu/014/public/#/

Venting 

I can live with getting a submit request declined usually, but giving the reason "this is not an official release" when the current content of the package is an out of date snapshot of the devel git branch from May and my request was to switch that to a tagged release branch that was released couple weeks ago that seems kinda uhhhhh,,,

I've been using Privacy Redirect [1] extension for Twitter -> Nitter / YouTube -> Invidious / Instagram -> Bibliogram for a while now and recently came across Untrack Me [2], which does the same on Android, thought it would be worth sharing

for legal reasons, the following is a shitpost and should not be interpreted as anything more than that 

Can't say this in my classes, or in mixed company, but for fuck's sake, in this day and age, fucking pirate your textbooks. Fuck the academic publishers with their legal monopolies and overpriced bullshit.

A guide to content warning abbreviations 

Some of the abbreviations used for content warnings aren't obvious so I decided to make a guide. Feel free to add if I missed anything!

cw: content warning
mh: mental health
ph: physical health
-: negative
~: neutral
+: positive
?: uncertain
pol: politics
ment: mention
adj: adjacent
pers: personal
ec: eye contact

I try to avoid using emoji in content warnings for the sake of those with screen readers, but whether or not you do is ultimately up to you.

Snouts is to the furry fedi what masto social is to the fedi as a whole
