It works 🎉 pretty fucking cool if I do say so myself.

@sir That is really cool! I've recently started contributing to a project that accepts patches via email, and this looks like it could really help newcomers who aren't as familiar with the workflow.

@cwebber Maybe it's because I've been playing a lot of D&D lately, but I like it!

To all GNU project members past and present. I want to hear from you. Please email me.

@gedvondur @andyc Not to mention, the Emacs community is far more than just RMS. He may have started GNU Emacs, but he is not GNU Emacs.

uhmmm so i tried to launch discord and instead it just kicked up my fans so i checked top and

discord had started `mv -vn /home/nora/Pictures/ /home/nora/Videos/ /home/nora/Music/ /home/nora//`

what the heck??

@velartrill Tangentially related to why sharing an NFS mount between two machines is so annoying if you're not also sharing passwd entries somehow; the filesystem has no idea what "user" owns a given file, only the UID.

That said, deviating from libc's implementation of user entry lookups would be a fairly surprising thing for an application to do, and it's worth noting that libc's user database functionality is already pretty modular through NSS/nsswitch.conf.

Openstreetmap is reaching the point that it is just more information rich and beautiful than google maps and that is awesome

@hisham_hm 26 here and keenly aware, though I get the feeling I'm a bit of an outlier in that regard (as are likely many people in the Fediverse).

It's super interesting to see the responses here though!
