I wonder how many times I need to mark "I don't like ARTIST" in Spotify before it stops recommending me music from them πŸ˜‘

If only there was some sort of piece of software you could mandate the usage of that could manage passwords.

Maybe we could call them password managers. And people wouldn't have to remember all their passwords, just a master password. Food for thought.


Oof, both Halo Infinite and Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 delayed on the same day to 2021.

This is a rough year for game releases, between delays to late this year and next year.



Wife and I got a new used couch (new for us, second-hand though in damn near perfect condition) from Tori, a classifieds, items wanted / for sale website, and it has tons of leg room.

Also plenty more room for the cats to sprawl. Especially this chonker. :3

Stayed up until 0900 just to make sure I'd be up to call an accounting firm, since they all seem to close around 1600 and that is the "first cup of coffee" time of day for me.

Yet another reminder that adulting sucks.

Build systems that add tasks the further along you are in compiling is about the biggest tease in software development that I know of.

Like "omg this has been going for 45 minutes, it's almost done" *adds 4k more tasks* "fuuuuu".

For those of you that use Budgie :budgie: on :solus:, there's a new system tray implementation that landed this week (and into the stable repo!) that we'd love your feedback on! β™₯️

Feel free to send the feedback our way via discuss.getsol.us/d/5102-testi and thanks in advance!

OMG, the bug for ffmpeg / VA-API accelerated playback under X11 in Firefox is finally fixed! 😍 There is hope for 2020 after all!


Join us for You're A Wizard, Usysconf! hackfest tomorrow (Sat. July 4th) at 1400 UTC. Bryan and I will both be working on usysconf, where Bryan will be working on state tracking and dependencies and I'll be working on a dconf parser and transition utility.

Tune in via multistre.am/therealdatadrake/ :solus:

Yikes not only is mastodon.cloud constantly down (hence the Solus move, since I want to be able to always reach folks using or interested in Solus) but apparently it got sold off.

Kinda feel something as big as that would've warranted some sort of mass email rather than just a note in the announcements section that can be easy to miss.

Hey everyone!

Due to constant downtime of the mastodon.cloud instance, we've now set up our home here on Fosstodon. We're getting all settled in so, expect a lack of post history. Might see some re-toots of the old account.

And omg I can use :solus: now. - @JoshStrobl

Over 1600 delta jobs (generates an eopkg with only the changes between package releases). Oh my! 😱

You should have an updated index now, so feel free to check for updates. Index will be hit-and-miss for a while until all the deltas are completed, just a heads up πŸ™‚ #Solus

Here we go, sync is now underway! If you missed our blog post on the updates coming to the stable repo, check out our blog post at getsol.us/2020/07/01/usysconf- πŸš€

As a reminder, make sure to do a complete upgrade and please be patient with downloading all the updates! πŸ™‚ #Solus

It's time for The Roundup #16, your bytes of #Solus news. In this roundup, we talk about our progress on the rewrite of our universal system configuration tool, usysconf, as well as multiple major upgrades which are landing or right around the corner!

In case it wasn't obvious that were doing a lot of big upgrades, we'll be enforcing our standard practice of deferring sync to allow for multiple stack upgrades and QA. Sync to stable repo is deferred to 03.07.2020. Can't wait to ship all these updates to you! - Joshua


Hey @lbry, been following you folks on Twitter for a while now and today was the first time I saw you mention Mastodon. You should promote it more frequently! πŸ™‚
