locale rant :) Show more
One of the biggest mysteries for me, is why settings like date or paper size is tied to the country/locale.
What if I want English language, ISO-8601 date, metric, A4... I have to look around which countries satisfy the conditions? My locale.conf has 4 different countries now (none of which are even my own...).
Or if the rest of the country doesn't want ISO dates, I can't have it either? Where's the logic?
Or am I doing it completely wrong?
Got rid of the status/panel in i3/herbstlufwm completely. I use rofi anyway, and in combi mode, it will show all running windows with workspace names. Even better than looking at the panel.
The only thing I miss are the date and time in multiple timezones. Have to find a way to show it on the background.
I think people jumping and deleting their Facebook accounts, should maybe take a moment first.
Currently, it is not clear how complete the process actually is. Under pressure, and maybe due to the upcoming EU GDPR, Facebook could make the process more thorough or transparent. People who have already deleted will not be able to "delete more".
Just a thought...
