Out of a sudden mac OS won't print saying the driver stalled. The driver HP recommends is a 500MB download, 1GB installed and doesn't seem to work. Plugged in a Linux laptop and printed the document immediately. Not the year of BSD on the desktop

I hate to ask, but here goes.

I'm looking for a role as a . or . Preferably where I have previous work ex from.

I've been looking a while and nothing with the right fit has come along. Work life balance is super important. If UK, happy to work completely in your timezone!

My site is and I'm happy to email you my CV/resume. Will start immediately once we're on the same page. 💯

@piggynet hm interesting, so Chromium is a snap? I see someone is using the debian buster deb successfully:

@happybeing it's a different community, for sure. Your ideas are more likely to find ears and helping hands here and Twitter is generally more likely to be the everything-on-Github crowd.

@hund but that's what I'm discovering here as a well: a plain file with line-by-line entries. Maybe put an x in front of what's done. Works really well. I resist the urge to write some tooling around it :)

@hund connection times out. Really looking forward to reading that. I'm using a plain text file to keep track of all the little todos and it's been really good.

@piggynet Ubuntu LTS (without snaps) is the sweet spot for me. Well, Kubuntu actually since I prefer KDE nowadays

Turns out relying even more on Python is fine, as long as there's no yaml. And this thing is _fast_

This is my go to article on the topic of responsibilities within a software dev team: Anything similar out there I should read?

@pheonix it comes up often in comparisons. It needs to stop.

@urusan this is a terrible practice which needs to be discouraged

Reminder: Github stars don’t actually mean anything
