"Published the source code to a variant of the NVIDIA Linux kernel modules dual-licensed as MIT/GPLv2"
Not yet available it seems, but sounds like good news!
Oh, and my blog now has a dark theme and should respect your system setting 🌌
I wrote a small post explaining how to automatically switch default browser on schedule for Linux:
Hope somebody will find it helpful
How do you organize your files, Fediverse?
I have accumulated lots of stuff over the years: photos and videos, school and university documents, job files, private development projects, video projects, music, screenshots — all of which I want to keep backed up.
The problem I have is the directory structure. How would you organize all this so that stuff is always easy to find and duplicates won’t spawn?
I’ve tried Johnny.Decimal, and it didn’t work for me. Do you have other ideas? #AskFedi
I've managed to enable scrolling through tabs in Firefox with a mouse wheel! Turned out to be rather tricky.
Here is a blog post with all the details :
I managed to get Firofox's tabs scroll with a mouse wheel! Unfortunately, all configuration was on my previous work laptop which I have already handed over 🤦
I've already spent 3 hours trying to restore this behavior and I still have no idea how I did that 😅 I'll certainly make a blog post once I figure this out.
WOW. Yeah I've been on mastadon for like only five days now but I'm already flabbergasted at the world that should have been... https://www.w3.org/TR/activitypub/#Overview
Like literally how did we all agree to just NOT have interoperable social networks??? Looking at the activity pub docs makes it clear how ridiculously easy that would have been. You want my content? Just GET my outbox. Want to send me something? Just POST to my inbox. The server can be anything you want, just format your messages in this (VERY INTUITIVE!) way. It's so simple it's STUPID.
I'm very new to all of this, so I'll admit that there's a lot I don't know, but what is painfully obvious right now is how, yet again, the tendrils of Capitalism have fundamentally altered the STRUCTURE of the Internet to make it less open, less empowering and generally WORSE for most users. However, what's also becoming clear is that it does not have to be that way, and being here is in some small way, bringing about that better possible future.
A good recipe for a calm and pleasant life:
Never argue with people who are not ready to change their opinion.
Before coming up with brilliant facts and researches that will refute your opponents, ask yourself: will it matter to them? Are they going to take it seriously?
In most cases, the answer is strong "No", so you can save yourself some breath and nerves.
This helped me a lot establishing good relationships with my parents and avoiding sensitive topics with missioners of various confessions 😁
Microsoft Teams app can prevent calling 911 on Android.
Wow, that's a shitty operating system design when a 3rd party unprivileged app can break a life-or-death critical feature.
I noticed that a suspicious menu option appeared when any text is selected on my Android phone offering to do "Bing Search". There was no way to disable it.
First I began to blame OnePlus for them to secretly partner with Microsoft, but it turned out to be a false accusation. The real culprit was... Outlook!
I had it installed for work reasons and not only it added that Bing Search option, but it ships with some part of their own browser, which is completely inappropriate for a MAIL client.
WTF, Microsoft? What does a mail client has to do with a web search platform? Why doesn't it use the system WebVew?
I heard a lot of discussion around the “How to make money on opensource?” topic. So I wrote a post about it! Enjoy
This is my third Mastodon home instance. First, I fled from mastodon.technology, because I couldn't follow an account I was interested in. I started digging out why and it turned out the instance's policy... let's say, didn't suit me
Banning spamming, illegal or pornographic content? Yes please, that is today's internet hygiene 👍
Banning nazies and trolls? Weeell, I wouldn't go for it, but I see the reasons why people do 👌
Banning "free speech" instances that do not fall into the previous categories? Why would someone do that? ✋
Banning instances that didn't ban the instances that you've banned? What? To me that's just totally unreasonable 🛑
All the categories above are defederated, not just silenced, meaning you can't follow anyone there, even if it's a good person 🤷

A small, but really important achievement from me: The latest Godot 3.3 release notes contain some credits to me! 😊
After 2 years of development, I finally completed it: https://t.me/roll_bot 🎉
In short, this is a chat bot for rolling dices (that was easy!), and searching for D&D 5e spells, monsters and items (I almost killed myself there)
The code is really shitty, but it works. Maybe I'll improve it after healing the burn out
Why it took 2 years? Rust was really tough for me and 2 years ago there was no async ecosystem that we have now, only plain Futures
