Excited that GATs finally got in!

Wish Nutella would be less sweet. Something like Dark Chocolate Nutella.

I hope the people behind Qubes get enough funding in general.

Is there a suitable bridge between Libera.chat and Matrix? Would be cool if everything was accessible through Matrix clients.

Just used the newest version with ParallelDownloads = 5 in the /etc/pacman.conf file, and holy crap is it fast. I love it.

Awesome! I guess I won’t need to install all these extra packages to make OBS work correctly.

As well as I am excited that people who are forced to use Windows have a better Linux experience, I’m afraid this is one step closer to complete vendor lock-in. Hopefully that won’t be the case.

Flutter + Rust seems like an awesome combination. You would get great cross compatibility across all platforms while still keeping safety and performance where it matters. I hope that project really takes off.

Sounds like exciting news. The more industry adoption Rust gets, the better.

Same here

It’s astounding how many people don’t wear masks. You go outside and find so many people just huddled together without masks and zero care for distancing. It makes me feel like I’m the crazy one.

NewPipe is really great. However, I still get moments where I’m trying to watch a video and then it just throws a “Guru Meditation” error, forcing me to re-search the video. Sometimes this happens for any video I try to watch and I have to wait for the next update to resolve the issue.

The newest update is leagues better in terms of overall UX though, so that’s great.

meanwhile i’m just chilling here with gnome-terminal

I’m using Intelllij with Rust right now and it’s pretty good. The only bad thing I can say about Intellij is that it’s kinda glitchy and buggy on Sway.

Just curious: have you used or planning to use AMD graphics cards? How is the experience of using Nvidia?

what is me_ira about?

Not a fan of dynamic typing, lack of type safety
Python is supposed to be an easy language to learn and develop in, but I find myself spending even more time and becoming way more frustrated in writing nontrivially-sized python applications since it's a lot harder and time-consuming to test and debug. The lack of compile-time type safety makes it so I don't really have a clue what each function/class does unless I constantly look back and forth at the documentation. Not only that, I run into so many small errors that would be so easy to fix if the compiler had detected them from the beginning and told me "No, you can't do that. Here, do this instead" rather than letting me find all these errors doing runtime (and that's if I find errors; for all I know, my program could be riddled with errors and I wouldn't know until I try out several possibillities or write a million unit tests). I don't mind writing out the types of the symbols I use since I can simply use autocompletion in my code editor and type inference in such languages as Rust or Kotlin. Types are great in general because they give me certain guarantees/constraints about my program and force me think about optimization and system design ahead of time. I suppose Python's dynamic typing/lack of type-safety is convenient for very small applications (basically scripts) where you're dealing with a bunch of primitives or lists, but for any larger application, static typing should be a must-have. I don't think the 10% less code you write is worth the pains of the time-consuming debugging process or incredibly inefficient runtime/space-usage. Basically all my complaints towards Python could also be directed towards Javascript.
