"if a line of text is too long the reader’s eyes will have a hard time focusing on the text. This is because the line length makes it difficult to gauge where the line starts and ends. Furthermore it can be difficult to continue onto the correct line in large blocks of text."

Is anyone making a class-action suit against @RocketLeague@twitter.com, stopping support for is one thing, but pushing a patch that will cripple software that I paid money for is very wrong. Would you have paid the same price if you knew it didn't have online? @thelinuxgamer@twitter.com

@IceWolf @azure @faoluin super for the modern bindings, control for the traditional ones

super-w => close window
control-w => kill word
super-a => select all
control-a => jump to beginning of line

I really like how macOS does this and wish I could get all my Linux-based stuff to follow suit. It fixes the thing where /copy/ is control-c in most apps, except terminal emulators, where it's shift-control-c; and also is just generally nicer.

@banjofox You're right. I'll store all my info on etch-a-sketches

I'll call them one-time pads.

#todayILearned that, when searching in Firefox's tab bar, you can prefix your search with `%` to search exclusively in the titles of open tabs.

Maybe everyone else already knew this, but I didn't—and I have the feeling that it will *dramatically* increase the number of open tabs I have at any given time.

I contacted #System76 support for a hardware datasheet (couldn't seem to find one online...) and told them I was configuring a kernel for #Gentoo. Their reaction was not "we can't support that," but instead "I talked to our resident Gentoo guy and you'll need at least a 5.3 kernel for your machine" (I somehow ended up with 4.19), which is relevant, helpful, informative, and accepting of the desire to run other OSes.

Highly recommended. Much better than Dell would have been.

Mircrosoft: we don't break backwards compatability as a tradeoff for security benefits except for we do break it (and userland) all the time

Linus: we don't break the userland. Fuck backwards compatibility, that's what LTS kernels are for. Upgrade to 5.4 for max security. You've been warned

Tldr: windows is an insecure clusterfuck (but this isn't really news. We've known this for 20 years)

Why not leave all this instance blocking nonsense up to individual users? Seems like every time I log on there's some new "that server isn't blocking Nazis hard enough" scandal, instances blocking other instances left and right over kneejerk reactions. Just how much of the fediverse has been decided by admins to be not good enough for me?
