Pinned toot

I have a love_hate relationship with underscores

(I tried Pop_OS because I heard it had Xbox controller support out of the box, which it indeed does. But it had serious issues with my laptop hardware so I didn't get far.)

Well, I had a good year trying out Windows 10 but everything outside WSL was really bad. I think I gave it a fair shot. Now I'm using KDE Neon again 😃 I used DD to make an image of the SSD and made a "recovery disc" as well so maaaaybe I'll be able to use that Windows install again someday? but I'm not counting on it 🤷‍♀️

I finally disabled Secure Boot so I could try Pop_OS, and this enabled me to boot up a Kubuntu 19.10 install I had from months ago. Gosh was it amazing to see KDE Plasma again after all this time... wobbly windows and consistent app theming ❤️

I see KDE's Kate in the Windows Store. If only Dolphin were there 📂

Is there seriously no way to make the Windows 10 file manager open in a specific folder...? Seems like they removed every way you could've done this before 🤦‍♀️ What kind of godawful OS requires you to install a third-party file manager just to access the user's main folder??

Started playing with my partner now that it has split-screen co-op. Just as fun as we thought it would be 😚

Wow! Never thought I would actually switch my username on GitHub. Now finally every relevant account I have online is called tassaron :kirby_happy: :kirby_happy: :kirby_happy: github.com/tassaron

GitHub's noreply email address (given to you if you choose to hide your email) changed in July 2017 to contain an ID which will identify you if you change your username. So if you want to use email privacy and your account is older than this feature, go toggle the option off and on to generate a new-style noreply address 📄

Hmm, I guess people complained that the promotional Sims 4 makeup pallette is low-effort because only the outside of the box is different. Seems appropriate because Sims itself is extremely low-effort. Gameplay in Sims 4 is practically identical to Sims 1 except the gameplay from Unleashed is in the base game (as it was in 2 and 3, so no credit for that).

The Sims team really wants to make a good game, I believe, but it's simply not possible under Electronic Arts. I can't wait for an indie Sims

Whoa. Cython generates an HTML page showing where pyobjects are still used. That's a really cool feature!

For the last hour Nightly has been crashing constantly as Android keeps trying to relaunch it (presumably because it's my default browser, which is technically probably a bad idea). Anyway, there was an update to fix it but I had to manually check for it. All good now

My contact page is more of an experiment in how to do email than an actual contact page lol. Nothing wrong with that 🤠

Only got 2 spam emails in 10 days so far which is kinda surprising. New rule: if an email address is in the body I'm gonna label it as spam. Also, any mention of search engines. Pretty simple rules but it'll probably help a bit more. I'm also thinking maybe if I fuck around with the button (have a decoy that is invisible to humans or something) maybe that could help too? Preferably I want to avoid having actual spam detection because it's difficult ... (Also some rate limiting maybe?)

Before Python 3.6 I would always forget to use OrderedDict and then go back and change everything. Now I just continue because implementation details tend to become permanent features anyway

Resurrecting an object in the __del__ method should not be allowed 😭

Omg. First time I ever found a question on StackOverflow that I actually knew the answer to! stackoverflow.com/a/65531660/8

Started using the Flask-Session extension but I'm patching it on initialization way too much and the maintainer is pretty quiet. I think I'm gonna copy the sessioninterface class I'm using out of that code and make my own version inside the project. At this point it would be easier for me to maintain it then add another dependency (it's a small class anyway)

I pronounce kwargs with one syllable. Never thought of it before. Kwaaaaarg
