Pinned toot

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 favorite taco store normally has Turkey Mole as their taco-of-the-month in November, but not this year! Could 2020 get any worse!

Got a message "Ted Gould joined Telegram" which is a bit odd. Turns out someone joined Telegram with a phone number I had about 10 years ago that was still in my address book.

Cute video about supporting local businesses. You're welcome to come to Allen, but I bet there are some businesses near you too.

Trump clearly wants a way out of this that he doesn't look like a loser. We should negotiate. We should give him Florida.

Abuse of power, when stuff like this happens it makes peaceful protest less of a reasonable option. The police are escalating the situation here. —

Apple: "We care about the environment!"
Also Apple: "We software locked your phone so you can't repair it and have to buy a new one."

Web shit weekly is on fire this week. "Hackernews wrestles with their value judgments; their firm stance as bootlickers for megacorporations has finally crashed headlong into their equally firm belief that programmers should never be held to any legal or moral standards." —

Polling of younger Americans on why they couldn't vote, seems like a good list of things to fix if we want Democracy to grow and flourish. —

Golang: You can use "//" to either place a human readable comment or control the compiler. Basically the same thing.

I want to see an interview with the scientist who caught three wasps alive and tied tracking devices on them with dental floss. That is crazy. —

Ted Gould boosted

While they probably didn't commit a crime, this should be criminal. Intimidating a black church on a Sunday. If any of the flags flown at this "rally" are ones you believe in, realize the company you keep. —

Obligatory peer pressure post. Make sure to vote. And wear a mask.

Looking at the Snap Store metrics for Inkscape, and there are still 6 people running 0.92.0.

I realize this is small number of users, but it kinda blows my mind that there are folks keeping that version around. At least upgrade to 0.92.4!

Okay, fine, I'll be excited about a reboot. Animaniacs is exactly what it would take. —

Woot! Last code review was shorter than expected.

Kids, never get behind on your code reviews.
