Something really broke my fresh fedora 34 installation, which is interesting because it's relatively clean. Extensions are currently disabled, and I'm using the open source GPU drivers. I don't think i can diagnose my way out of it, so i'll see if a reinstall fixes things. If it returns again though, I'll try and find out what may cause it. This might be the first actual problem I've ever had with this os thus far.

@Archivist @Linux4Everyone @vancha GNOME was never a GNU project, developed using GNU infrastructure or managed by GNU. It was an independent project from the start.

The G in the name was cause GNOME was/is ideologically aligned to some degree with GNU and the GPL. Nothing more.

GNOME stopped being refereed to as an acronym in its first years shortly after.

After some consideration I'll be joining other artists on @hicetnunc2000 for the foreseeable future while waiting for ETH to go Proof of Stake and reduce it's carbon footprint.

Aaah >:( just worked almost half a day on replacing one wordpress site with one some third party made for us. They zipped the site and it's sql in an invalid container format first, I had to fix 5(!) invalid collation types for the sql database because it wouldn't import, it was 154569 lines long btw, only to find out at the end that they sent an entirely wrong version. It's password locked. I forgot I had the day off because of easter yesterday, I should have known that makes today monday -.-

Today is my birthday. I never celebrate it, but it's a good day. If you want to celebrate, please donate something to a good cause.

I ask my friends every year to donate to the Dutch Depression Society (depressie vereniging) at
If you're willing to spare a few bucks, please send a donation to your local depression help/research center.

Thanks for sticking with me on this long post! 😍

A dutch webstore that sells gnu/linux computers and laptops, has a pc in their stock they dubbed, "frikandel". (a dutch snack) But since i can't find the placement date I don't know if it's a joke or not. :P it's hilarious nonetheless.

Just updated to 40, by upgrading from fedora 33 to 34. The process was pretty easy, except it broke a little gnome shell extension I made a while ago. Thankfully it was a simple fix, so i'll send that over to the shell extensions site, and enjoy this amazing new gnome release ^^

I wonder what's easier. Trying to submit a form to a webpage that requires you to login using something like python, or to use something like selenium webdriver? Some company requires you to login to their page and upload a csv to edit some user data, but they don't provide any sort of api. After contacting them they don't seem to have any plans of implementing one either, so i'm going to have to try different routes.

Well looks like my feed is going to get a whole lot less interesting :(

If anyone feels in any way offended by my stance on RMS being reinstated by the free software foundation, I would like to notify you that I'm happy about the matter. I've seen a lot of people going around blocking others because of this, so it seems like it may be useful to some to know.

Just smoked some leftover chicken, and I have to say these came out great. No fancy herbs, just salt water for marinade, and an hour of smoking time. Can recommend 😁

My girlfriends gotten me a great birthday present last week, and I've only gotten around to use it today. It's a new shadow rock 3 cpu cooler for my new pc.
She didn't like how noisy the stock cooler was, so asked for a suggestion on what to give me that might fix that.
I'm actually very impressed, the noise is now barely audible at all, and the cpu is almost 20(!) degrees cooler under load. Super happy :)

I like how easy it is to use custom shaders in GTK4. There's no Cairo involved on either of those screenshots.
