khorshidi (means solar) calendar is an observation-based calendar, unlike the Gregorian rule-based, which makes it more accurate. It begins at the midnight nearest to the instant of the vernal equinox. Thunderbird does not support khorshidi calendar. There was a few deprecated add-ons. I wrote a new add-on compatible with newer versions of Thunderbird:

I've made a new app, Identity. It helps you compare different versions of a video or an image, for example, to see the quality difference, or to analyze output from multiple variants of a video processing algorithm (my use-case!).

Grab it on Flathub:

On ():
* One 4k 28" screen, scaled at 1.5x
* One 4k 15" screen, scaled at 2x
* Consistent 60 FPS running on a laptop's iGPU
* Everything is scaled perfectly based on which output it's currently on
* Even the mouse cursor is always scaled correctly based on which monitor it's on

Show me an X11 set-up which can do _any_ of that correctly.

Do you want to work on free and open source software as a full-time job? People ask me all the time how to find companies who might hire you for this, and I share this command line snippet:

git log -n100000 --format="%ae" | cut -d@ -f2 | sort -u | less

This will produce a list of email domains who are committing in a given git repo, which often corresponds pretty closely with the list of companies willing to hire you to work on that project and others like it.

Still. If anybody likes this mastodon, it's fair use. #MastoArt
