Going forward, the file manager Ranger will be converted into an IRC client.

Not usually a fan of #VSCode, but this setup looks awesome.
"I hacked #zathura and girara to provide proper background transparency with the recolor feature. That is, only the background of the document is transparent, while the text is fully opaque." 😍
@amanajayvarma I've been using the app launcher from the Simple collection (https://f-droid.org/en/packages/com.simplemobiletools.applauncher/), but this looks pretty neat! Will have to check this out at some point.
@aaronco36 Macbooks. 🙄 Currently also hunkering down at home for finals though. Haha.
"#Sony Pictures Imageworks has made the color management tool OpenColorIO—which was used to create the recent hit animated film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse—available to the #opensource community. The tool has now become the second software project of the Academy Software Foundation (ASWF), a #Linux Foundation-owned open source association." 😮
"#Google is now banning the popular Linux browsers named Konqueror, Falkon, and Qutebrowser from logging into Google services because they may not be secure." 🤦♂️

@Linux4Everyone Variety of tiling window managers. AUR. I use Arch btw. 😄
#HotTake: I've noticed that #GitHub has gotten some pretty neat features since #Microsoft acquired it. Making Dependabot free and integrated with GitHub, deleting issues and the sponsor program. I'm sure there's many more features I'm forgetting/missing too. It seems as if new features are being rolled out way more quickly too now, given the bigger team size I suppose. Anyone else have any thoughts on this?
@umair You can see toots from other instances on the federated timeline. You can also follow people from other instances.
@umair You can just sign up at another one and then transfer over your data.
@umair I mean it's self-hosted, so you can always change instances if you don't like the people/community in one.
@jordan31 Congratulations on your new upgraded phone! Please use the speakers or Bluetooth headphones for audio. 😅

@ndegruchy I don't know what else I expected, but I jumped a little upon hearing the honk sound. 😆
Who else can't relate? 😆 Windows managers are life. #i3
@geekgonecrazy Have to give credit to someone on the internet from where I saw this design before. 😄
That is unfortunate - will definitely have to try and figure that one out. I first tried using only one text element for the whole thing, but it didn't work due to the overlapping spans and styling; it was also a nightmare to manage. So, I redid it with stacking the text elements on top of each other, and I can definitely see that being messed up in a bunch of different places...
Live, love and most importantly, #linux.
