Howdy Mastodon!

Engineer working for Previously I worked on Ubuntu Phone and doing multimedia/TV, almost all consumer electronics.

An Open Source advocate and Ubuntu member. Was a co-founder for Inkscape and now serve on its board.

I think that one mistake I made with my Twitter account was making it all technical, expect this to have more politics and other stuff.

My youngest is learning to read, but not very confident in his abilities. So I told him: "You're a very good reader!"

His retort: "Well, who am I better than then?!?"

My wife has told me that "The President" was not an age appropriate answer.

Impressive list of all the OSS libraries and binaries that are included in Plex products.

Shows how OSS is a commons that empowers people to implement their ideas and visions.

Fascinating to see how this is going to move through the courts. If the pages are considered public forums, it seems like it would limit social media sites from implementing their own code of conducts as well. Wonder if the ad supported networks would then ban government entities or drop their rules. —

Generally the dependencies for Inkscape aren't really big security issues, but in the last couple weeks there have been quite a few!

Rebuilding the snaps again.

Thinking about this tool that can predict keypresses using audio:

Wondering whether I could make a wireless keyboard that didn't need any batteries and just used the microphone. Perhaps with some of those mechanical keys.

Probably the last to know, but there sure are a lot of nice Inkscape tutorials on this page:

A donation for @conservancy = support for :inkscape: and other community-driven free software projects. If you can help out, #PIA will match donations made before end of 2018. Help keep cool projects and #FLOSS software alive & kicking!

Landing a bunch of merge requests that have stacked up for various reasons. Making it rain code on the master branch!

I doubt my co-workers are as excited about this as I am.

The end of this story is that the kiddo had to use the computer all night to do homework.

I'm gonna have to talk to his teachers.

Excited about Battletech finally being released for Linux.

Disappointed it was delayed, but happy that they finally came through on their promise to deliver for the platform.

Downloading .... .... ....

We're making changes to the #Inkscape command line. To be sure we accommodate as many use cases as we can, we need your help! Please post examples and descriptions of how you use the :inkscape: command line here:

(Please also Boost for reach, thanks! 💕 )

Dave. I'm afraid I can't allow you to litter Dave.

Ubuntu powers the display screens at McDonald’s, apparently.

You can always tell how good of day it is going to be by the number of tries it takes to enter your password.

With containers, namespaces and LSM modules in use all over the place; sudo isn't what it used to be.

It is getting colder, so making a latte in my favorite mug.
