It is a GPU-accelerated Monte Carlo style simulator for ice crystal halo phenomena that you can sometimes see in high-altitude clouds.
We’re now on Mastodon 2.9, which comes with the new single column layout.
New users will get the new layout, but existing users will need to switch.
You can switch between the single and multi column layouts by going to Settings > Preferences > Appearance then enabling/disabling the “Advanced Web Interface”.
There exists an alternate timeline where by pure chance, no one has ever won the lottery #Showerthoughts
The source code for several Infocom interactive fiction games was published on Github, e.g. The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, by Steve Meretzky and Douglas Adams
I have this one repo at work that I have a *lot* of branches for, and I'm terrible at cleaning them up when I'm done with them
listing them by alphabetical order is almost useless, if I don't remember the branch name then there are just too many to remember which one I want
so I learned about `--sort`, now I can see which branches I've committed to most recently:
`git branch --sort='-committerdate'`
If you're an avid open-source user who would love to help advance a project, there's a lot you can contribute whether you can program or not:
Provide constructive feedback, file bug reports, improve the documentation or help out maintaining the web & social media presence. Spread the word and recommend the projects you love to others (btw, I run Arch 😂)
Say "thank you" and tell developers to "keep up the great work". That form of contribution means a lot more than you could possibly imagine.
