Pinned toot

I don't know what I am, but I'm here.

I write a lot about feelings (especially grief) and dissolving the plutonomy. I code; I record original music; I build shelves; I pull out wisteria; I parent; I friend.

In suspended transition from 2000-2016, struggling towards transgirl since then.

any file scanning app (in this case Filelight, but I've run into others) which, when it encounters a single problem file, gives up without offering any opportunity to fix the problem or ignore it.

This is especially annoying when a scan may have already been running for 20 minutes before it encountered the problem. It renders the software effectively useless for the task at hand.

Bonus gripe: Filelight removes the URL I had painstakingly typed (because I'm scanning an sftp connection, and those aren't included in the browser even though they could be).

Is it a common thing to have ideas for political cartoons but not really have the art chops (or at least the combination of art chops and time) to be able to draw them out properly?

I've been battling with a complicated spreadsheet for what feels like about a week now (at least 4 days, I think), and I have to say -- I really, really miss Access 97. I wish Base were an adequate replacement, but it's just not quite there.

@libreoffice -- any plans to implement continuous forms soon? Or are they already in there somewhere and I just haven't found them yet?


Maybe there are some situations where they are necessary? Most of the time they aren't, and they actively get in the way. Two recent examples:

1. I'm saving a credit card statement. The web site doesn't automatically give the file a useful name that has the statement date in it, so I need to see the date on the statement -- but the date is scrolled off the screen and the dialog prevents me from scrolling the statement.

2. I'm sorting some columns in Calc, and I need to select which columns to sort by, but some of the columns I want to sort are scrolled off to the left, and the "sort" dialog won't let me scroll back to see what they are.

Making the dialog always-on-top is fine. Making the background window darker is fine. Just don't prevent interaction with the background -- mmkay??

It is an undisputed fact that the quantum health failure is due to controlled vertical reduction, and it has been determined that the preliminary radiation instability is due to preliminary radiation distribution.

Follow-up: a lot of people have reacted to this with toots that just contain a single emoji. At least 1 of those was clearly intended as agreement, and I suspect the rest weren't exactly disagreeing -- but just to be clear: 'tain't the same thing.

Desktop applications which default to hiding their menus. Firefox and Vivaldi are among the guilty. Don't Do This.

"File Save" Dialogs Edition

1. when there is no "save as" option, and the "save" button doesn't confirm where it's saving the file (MATE Screenshot is guilty of this)

2. when the drop-down list for where to save the file just shows the name of the folder, and not where it is (MATE Screenshot again)

3. when the app doesn't remember the last place you saved a file, and makes you navigate there again each time

4. when the app defaults to saving the file in a different folder from where it was loaded
