I've also been told that they release 3 new sheets a week that they'll mail you about if you join the mailing list :D
#softwareGripe : online services that only provide a subset of features (or none at all) on their website, so you have to use an app to do some things (or anything at all) with that service.
Make the web site work first, and then add stuff to the app.
From looking at the code, known array elements seem to include (with guesses as to their meanings):
Aside: can we stop building code documentation around code comments and start building code from documentation?
#MediaWiki docs be like:
$descriptor= Array of Field constructs, as described in the class documentation
me: there is no
Field class, nor
HTMLField... oh, but there is
$params= Associative Array. See HTMLForm doc for syntax.
I hereby dub this authoring practice #passingTheDoc.
@violet's internship ended today. If anyone has any leads on any dev work at all, please forward it to her.
Asking for financial help.
Hey folks, I’m hoping this is the last time I need to ask for help, but right now I need it. I recently got started on ADHD medications and I’m hoping that will help me get on track soon. But in the meantime, I need help.
Job hunting has produced nothing for me, and don’t have much money left. I don’t have enough to pay rent or bills right now. If you can spare it, I would really appreciate if you could help me out.
If you know of any job opportunities, I would also appreciate it if you would DM me.
...and since kdenlive seems to be rendering stuff properly now, have a video I recorded in 2015 (pre-transition). It's a Beatles parody about creationism.
#docsGripe: manuals which focus on "here's what's in the menu" (which is, like, easily discoverable) rather than "here's how you accomplish various things" or even "here's what this term in this dialog means and how to use it".
I was going to pointedly call out KDE for this, but then I was able to find what I was looking for in their manual by Googling the term, so now I'll only give them a side-eye instead.
#BadUX #softwareGripe I have here an Android app which says it doesn't trust my SSL certificate -- presumably because it doesn't know Let's Encrypt -- but doesn't give me any way to override or add Let's Encrypt as a trusted root.
Possibly it's using Android's cert manager? But I added the cert there and it didn't seem to make any difference. Regardless, this isn't something the user should be expected to know how to do.
For extra annoyance: it was working last week, and as far as I know the cert has not changed since then.
another half-baked cryptocoin idea, don't hate me
How about a type of coin whose data includes:
This way artists could know every time their works were being enjoyed (or at least copied).
This seems like half an idea at best, though. Issues:
...did I maybe just reinvent NFTs? I thought those were supposed to be unique, though, rather than being freely copyable, so this isn't quite the same.
Working on this today. I cut all the 2x4s and then, of course, realized that two of them needed to be an inch longer because of how fiddly details in the corners affect the geometry.
