You know what doesn't seem to work? documenting new features by providing analogies to the old tech they're replacing.

It seems like a good idea at first, but it only has a lifespan of one user-generation. After the new tech is in place and new people join the org, nobody remembers the old stuff and the analogies and similes are meaningless.

How do I get my data from a disabled account on Facebook? Not sure how it got disabled, but the download data button just goes to a loading screen for 6+ hours.

Twitter got the axe this week. The LinuxRocks Mastodon instance is my only social media now. Also, good morning 🙂.

Are mariadb databases always a minimum of 2XX MB? I'm running two (one for miniflux, one for nextcloud). Miniflux just has a few feeds and I've never touched Nextcloud past initial setup. Both databases are over 200MB.

:(

Found a bug in my software. Discovered it's a problem in one of my dependencies. Reported it.

They decided it was a bug in one of their dependencies. They reported it.

Less than a week after the initial report: Bug fixed, then bug fixed, then bug fixed.

I've never seen that before.

It's so good to see the community growing! What used to be more or less a 1.5 men project now has a proper team of volunteers as well as paid contributors, coming from KDE and other mobile FOSS communities, working on everything from hardware support to essential applications.

With that pace, an "end-user-ready" state feels within reach!

Read about the requests we received in 2018 and how we responded in our latest @intheopen blog post: write.as/intheopen/2018-transp
