This forced transition from windows 7 to a newer supported version is great, it offers another opportunity for people to try out a different operating system, like something gnu/linux based.
I just got asked by someone to install ubuntu on their laptop, but I think I know he/she isn't really going to benefit from that transition. Should I explain that this person can always switch back later and try ubuntu in the first place, or maybe advise not to at all... Tricky..

How cool is it that you get a free scale model of the I.S.S. with every sheet of breakout letterboard letters..

Now, that 2.28.2 is used for days/weeks, I have enough feedback to fix bugs.
I will bring Pixelfred 😏 stories in 2.29.0

On my way to close my very first bug report. If the issue is fixed, time for a code cleanup and commiting the changes to the shell extension. I'm probably way more excited about this than i should be 😁

Interestingly I haven't found a single place for all documentation for developing shell extensions. Only unofficial github repo's with some collections of javascript and gnome libraries. This could really do with some work. This makes developing extensions more guesswork than it needs to be.

I've been working on my crappy binary clock gnome shell extension again yesterday after someone made a bug report. Which means that it has at least 1 user :D which is one more than I expected.

Can anyone help my dad out by suggesting an open source video recorder that works with a foscam FI9900P security camera?
We've almost given up hope but I'm pretty sure there has to be something out there. Anything that uses the rtsp protocol would probably work :(

My prediction for 2020: this is going to be "The year of the Gnu/Linux on the smartphone". Am i still allowed to make that prediction after the first linux phones have already been shipped? πŸ˜…

Spent all day working through the documentation of some soap api. It requires you to set up your own database to synchronize with the one I actually want the data from, and the methods for synchronizing the actual data seem not to be documented or commented at all. Ended the day with 0 progress and a headache.
Better luck tomorrow!

"You are our God's Chosen One," the robed figures said.
"Er... Which god?"
The robed figures shuffled their feet and looked around.
"Our God is a minor water deity. Of the pond in the park."
"Oh. And the chosen one would?"
"Lead the Cleansing."
"Of rubbish. From the pond."

Interesting.. I seem to have some problems when trying to play games lately. After about 20 minutes of playing a graphically intensive game my entire desktop environment freezes. *IF* I'm lucky, I can open a tty in time and close the process causing the freezing, but even after closing it i might have weird graphical glitches on my desktop (see screenshot). Does anyone know what might cause this? I'm on open source amd drivers with an rx480 that doesn't seem to be overheating if that helps :)

Does anyone know of a good android app that can save gps data in the background? :) I'm looking to record trip data by gps coordinates for later editing.
