The main reason I use Firefox Developer Edition is because I like the blue variation of the Firefox logo

Anyone have an idea how I could acquire the file format spec for VCE (exam question bank) files?

Any WPF experts on here? Got a few questions.

@jetgirl One of Calibre's original killer features was the DeDRM plugin that removes that DRM. It was the reason it got so popular! And it still works 🙂

Some people think "smart people are skeptical" and conclude "if I am just skeptical of everything then I must be smart".

I've reached the "repairing junk zunes from eBay" stage of quarantine.

TFW just *one* single missed character in your code causes weeks of delay

@cbush Try and make the interface general purpose too. I can see someone using it in the future to reverse engineer some long-obsolete hardware for which the source doesn't exist anymore.

So, I've been working for some time building an Intel 8080 emulator in Go. I have implemented and unit tested nearly all the opcodes. In the next couple of days I plan to start building the emulator's interface to Space Invaders and building output interfaces for video and sound. Hope it all works 😄

Just heard Beethoven's Silence for the first time. Don't think I'll ever be the same again.

@cbush Inform is a really great way to get in to the genre – I'm not super experience with it, but it's NLP and the docs are included with the IDE. Programming in the language is not as fun as some other languages, but the payoff of seeing someone play your game is huge. If you're trying to make a text adventure, definitely the way to go.

Bought a Logitech G613 today. Have truly loved my Kinesis split mechanical and wanted something less expensive for home. Hoping it was a good purchase.

Fact, language and a wee bit of opinion. 

@cbush @cldtech @Mastodon @fosstodon I do find the trend of internet platforms curtailing free speech abhorrent, even illegal depending on jurisdiction.
Fosstodon has been an excellent instance thus far, with many well rounded individuals who excel at conducting themselves in an exemplary fashion such that I don't think we even needed to have "this isnt a free-speech zone" in the CoC. Luckily my opinion wasn't solicited. :)

@fosstodon Thank you. My life has been so much more enjoyable and less stressful since I bid farewell to Facebook and joined your ranks. It enriches my life to converse with other people sharing my interests. It makes life more bearable to have a "safe space" where politics are rarely, if ever, mentioned. It gives me hope to know there are people who are not brainless drones addicted to social media and all the trash that goes with it. I just gave my first donation. Thank you.

Prelude to Bach's Cello Suite No. 1 is quite possibly one of the most beautiful pieces of music I've ever heard.
