Update: it… worked? I didn’t get a response from anybody, but same day I sent a note about it, Firefox Snap was updated to 93.

Anybody else on FOSStodon getting multiple late, duplicate notifications?

Day 4: Actually reached out directly to Mozilla and Canonical to ask what gives about the Firefox Snap not getting updated to ver. 93.

Found out a meeting series I had scheduled for tomorrow has expired… I’m honestly just not going to update it. And it won’t matter.

Star Trek TNG is still supremely entertaining. It’s usually not dated in the least, and when it is, it’s hilarious.

Day 3: snapcraft.io still has version 92 of Firefox. Is making a snap complicated? Flatpak was up to 93 same day as release.

Switched to Firefox Flatpak on my x86 laptop, and to the Snap on my Arm laptop (because the Flatpak doesn’t support Arm). Did so to get up-to-the-minute browser updates because the browser gets updated so frequently. Flatpak: ver 93. Snap: …still ver 92. WYA Canonical??? Isn’t this why you’re making everyone go with Snap in Ubuntu?

Was talking to a friend about how @PINE64’s Pinebook Pro boots without a BIOS, and this shitpost is the simplest explanation I can think of:

I love Nobel season. For a few days I get to wake up to a notification about someone’s contributions to science and humanity, and it’s a nice start to the day.

Switched myself from the Manjaro Firefox package to the Flatpak. Manjaro does a great job of updating as soon as they can, but I feel like for something as exposed as a browser, up-to-the-minute updates are better. Makes me feel good that Mozilla maintains the Flatpak themselves.

Hey, uhhh, Framework… it’s September… where’s my shit?

General Anxiety About the World 

I can’t focus. I feel like the state of the world sometimes just saps my abilities. Like why bother with what’s on my desk? The climate is still going to get shittier, and Covid is getting worse by the day. They say don’t worry about what you can’t control, but how can I not when I feel like it is or is going to make life miserable for myself and my loved ones? Sometimes I want to leave everyone and hermit. I can’t change anything so why participate?

FOSS projects should have Dr. Strangelove-esque alt titles, for instance, “GNOME Shell or: How I Learned to Stop Customizing and Love the Super Key”.

OK all 4 of us from Late Night Linux are here now. You should follow @degville, @felimwhiteley, and @8none1.

Finally watched ‘Inside’ and cannot get over it…

Pine64. Framework. Why do I always buy from projects with torturously long lag between purchase and playing-with? ​:blobcatgooglycry:
