@thibaultamartin Developing good interfaces IS hard, both on paper and in practice. Developers are the only digital workers who can make tools for themselves - designers have to trust a developer. And this trust is easier to build if there's a healthy community / ecosystem around the protocol and the software. And not just a productive community, but a community that is inviting and friendly to newcomers - e.g. designers that can help make better UX.

do non-male BDFLs even exist?

(BDFL = Benevolent Dictator For Life, a too-common organization structure in open source software)

Looking for connections who know a thing or two (or even more than two things) about doing an MA in Archiving.

If this is you, can I ask you a few questions?

If this is not you, please could you signal boost?

an OS that
1) took care of the entire UI, and any app or program would define it's GUI through a declarative language
2) dedicated one CPU core to running the UI smoothly, so only the OS (or a privileged program) had control of windows, ensuring they wouldn't freeze or deadlock during normal operation.

An OS without 1 might have
2b) dedicated one CPU core to running the designated GUI threads of any program, and only those threads would have access to the GUI ABI/API.

@zatnosk Huh! Since DMs can be addressed to multiple people, that makes an invite-only poll (with group size limited by character limit)

Polls in direct messages is a fascinating feature.

Ugh. Almost every time I connect my Bluetooth headset to my computer I have to jiggle the audio configuration and/or reconnect the headset entirely.

Why are you like this, Linux?
