I'm stumped. Anyone with experience in , specifically , any ideas? I'm using gpu_cache, and it seems to *sometimes* work. I just can't seem to find anything that would cause this kind of behavior. I'm 99% sure the problem is related to rusttype, as the artifacts are definitely in the glyph cache texture.

Amazing text rendering, and on the first try! After such a spectacular performance in the morning hours, I think I'll go and have a well earned rest now.

Finally compiled and tested llvm. During the whole process, I managed to bore myself watching youtube, eat some, watch some TV, come back to the computer, read Mastodon a bit, and now it seems to be finishing. I'd estimate it took a bit over an hour.

Manually compiled packages are sometimes are real heck.

yeah sex is great but have you ever thought about making a fucking videogame

Not sure if sympathize is the correct term. Emphatize?

Conflicted between having GNOME or sway on my desktop computer. On the other hand, sway is real great, but on the other hand, if I make graphical applications, it's harder to sympathize with the end-user if my WM is very different. What to do?

Read this. This article pretty summarizes what I see every day. And when I criticize it, half of the audience doesn't understand my point. They are simply to young and grew up with smart phones and fast lines.

Does your chat protocol have first-class clients that include all features and run natively on desktop systems instead of just web browsers, mobile phones or Electron?


Then your chat protocol is as good at being a chat protocol as the average bowl of pudding.

finally do I have the proper way of looking at the fediverse :icon_mrgreen:

also yes it's fully functional and I'm actually using it as my main interface right now

Love it when my program works better in x11 mode than in wayland mode, when running it inside a wayland wm.

New standards ahoy :happyfelix:

I'm happy to announce that my barebones ActivityPub server, implemented in Node.js/Express, is now open source! I intend for it to be a reference implementation for developers who are adding ActivityPub to their own services, but also it is an application server that you can build on if you want.

In other words, t's a few hundred lines of code that lets you create Mastodon-compatible accounts that can accept follow requests and post stuff to their followers.

Also, nostalgia is a hell of a drug. I'm on episode 75 of Dragon Ball Super, despite it not being actually very good imo.
