I am Alice
25, Netherlands, game dev as a hobby. moving over from @auvalice on birdsite

full time programmer, trans because of course i am. I never know what to stuff in these smelly boxes so just ask away

the mastodon app is... alright.

it just seems to miss a lot of features (or i cannot find them)

The two that stick out for me are navigating to the profile of someone who retoo- i mean boosted something and seeing your follows/folowers

Hello everyone, nice to meet you! ✨ Time for a little #introduction

My name is Connor and I'm a 2D artist from Germany. I studied Game Design for the last couple of years and focus on character / environment / concept art.

I'm not the best when it comes to posting stuff regularly, but I'll do my best to share some original work and fanart from time to time!

Today I tried out some pixel art for the first time!

I don’t really know what I’m doing but it’ll be a fun thing to do on the side ~

couldn't figure out why git wouldn't clone this 6417 branch for a good 10 minutes

MS teams continues being a trainwreck by not allowing you to close the window inside of tiling WMs, an issue that has existed for at least 2 years

you _can_ disable its "keep running on close" option to re-enable tiling WM controls, but of course those will make it so that when you close it teams wont stay running in the background, which is kinda what you want for an app like that

i erroneously assumed that, for some reason, Ubuntu would not suffer from the same themeing issues. It does, because it's snap that causes this issue. snap only pulls from themes that are specifically available from a snap context.

this issue has been known since... 2016 it seems. time for workarounds instead

Regain Privacy – Buying Google-free Smartphones
Believe it or not, it is astonishingly easy to own a smartphone without immediately succumbing to the hunger for private data of big tech companies like Google or Apple. You only need either money or time, and the knowledge where to buy your next device. This is how you get there.

Dear all: If you ever need to describe a distance that is a 1000 km or more please use the word "megameter" so say 5 megameter instead of 5000 km. Thanks in advance.

in the end i settled on installing ubuntu instead and hoping that this gtk theme works in ubuntu

i know i could just tell chrome to provide its own window decorations instead but that's a workaround for chrome only and the menu buttons stay broken

installed Pop OS... unfortunately with how they did their cosmic integration into gnome, customization has kinda gone out the window (most notably GTK themes arent being applied properly)

long shot but has anyone else run into this / a way to fix it?

should i consider going NVMe? is it the same as going from HDD to SSD?

considering once again reinstalling OS once im done with work today
