less code == better code is a good rule of thumb, but not always true.

I just made a refactoring that increases the amound of code, but I'm confident that the new code is better in many ways than the old one

The amount of entitlement some Linux users have continues to be staggering

For every feature you implement in your program there will be someone demanding an option to turn it off

If you told me yesterday that I would start my day with sending patches to GnuPG I would not have believed you

I consider CSD a bad idea in general, but this is way worse than it could be. It combines all the flaws of CSD with none of the benefits

A gentle tip for filing bugs: if someone asks you for a log, don't trim it. Really. Even if you see red lines or something that looks like an error to you, just include the whole log from start to finish. The only person who knows what is actually an error in your logs is the person fixing your bug, and they'll have to ask you to repost your logs if you trim them down.

Why some people open but reports without even trying to check what they claim?
They are wasting time of everybody including themselves.

Pros of being open source: People have awesome suggestions for your project
Cons of being open souce: People have weird and nonsensical suggestions for your project

I'd argue it's a necessity. Pop culture, the latest scientific developments, the Internet, most everything internationally significant is in English. We'd be so fucking isolated if we didn't polish our English skills.

I mean, if you published a scientific paper in Norwegian, who the fuck would read it? English is the lingua franca, and if you suck at it, you're kinda screwed.

If your bug report is more of a rant than a report then don't bother sending it
