One of the biggest reasons I love GNOME and Pantheon is that they *don't* feel like Windows. Say what you will about familiarity, but GNOME and Pantheon are great because they *don't* adhere to the traditional desktop metaphor.

This may be why I think Cinnamon is "boring."

Y'all, everybody gets called out sometimes. @Jewbacchus called me out for posting something I didn't know was anti-semitic and another friend checked me when I was using ableist language. Trying to avoid fucking up is trying to avoid learning and growing. Be grateful folks think you're worth investing the time in to not make an ass of yourself. There's nothing wrong with apologizing, & fighting that L doesn't help anybody. We all gotta take it sometimes. Not everything's an attack.

Firefox is experimenting with blocking website notification requests by default. Have to say: I hope they do this. Web push notifications are terrifically annoying. androidpolice.com/2019/04/02/f

You can avoid #YouTube's weird algorithms and broken subscription system by subscribing to channels through RSS instead. You don't need an account, just a feed reader.

Put the channel's username in this address:

youtube.com/feeds/videos.xml?u

You can then add this RSS address to your feed reader app.

For example, OnePotChefShow's RSS feed is:

youtube.com/feeds/videos.xml?u

You can also make RSS feeds from channel IDs (strings of letters and numbers):

youtube.com/feeds/videos.xml?c

I made these earlier this year as I was playing through the game - they're based off screens of my own adventure, almost like virtual plein air!

;v; Been itching to play again lately but haven't had time at all...hope to do some new speedpaints when the expansion comes out~

#LibreOffice 6.2 has been out for a couple of weeks now, including the official release of the new "Tabbed (notebook) Toolbar." For those M$ Office users, it's very "Ribbon-like."

I've used it now for a while and I'm pleased. It's nice to have all the tools in one spot rather than drilling through menus.

Like anything new, it changes workflow, so there's some adjustment time. Works fine, looks great.

We will be performing infrastructure maintenance and upgrades tomorrow starting at 9AM EST / 2PM UTC. This maintenance is expected to take roughly 4-5 hours, as we're swapping out drives, upgrading our CPUs, and performing volume changes.

During this time, our hosted services (e.g. Phabricator, forums, and website) will be unavailable. You can follow us here for further updates.

Every time I apply new knowledge to my personal projects I can hear the "leveled up" sound in my head. It's really satisfying when you start getting a grasp on things without having to rely on search engines and stackoverflow.

Upcoming 4.1 release of Ephemeral for elementary OS: all new search + suggestions. Startpage.com is now the default search engine, plus a new option to switch it (back) to DuckDuckGo if you'd like. And URL entry suggestions! Over 400 popular websites suggested.

So, I'm trying Fedora Silverblue Rawhide on the secondary PC now, and much like the Ubuntu 19.04 daily builds, it also has the new Adwaita.

Apparently 19.04, at the time I tried it, didn't quite have all of the new icons. Rawhide does. So, here's nautilus + the new Adwaita folder icons

Working on a new section of the elementary OS website. I generally like the left two animations, but am struggling with a graphic/animation for Do Not Disturb. Ideas? :D
