It all started with me doing a git log of a non-linux related project and wondering what was the real root of many crap I saw. They do bitbucket. It's pretty decent, except for this..

The Linux guys use mailing list and it works just fine.

They all lack a decent scheme to do inline reviews of subject line and commit message. Anyone know of a better tool (other than mailing list)?

KDE would like to thank our "good" friends at Neowin for their contribution to this year's April Fools' joke.

Unfortunately they missed the memo (again!) as there are still two months to go until April 1st 🤡.

It is with sadness that we note the passing of the British writer, engineer, home computer pioneer, and entrepreneur, Sir Clive Sinclair, who died this morning at the age of 81 after a long illness…


Ah, one of my yearly highlights:
