heh, never heard about this

do you feel that it’s actually that much more efficient (like their gh page says) than, say dvorak, or it is hard/too early to tell?

it promises much better energy efficiency than dvorak and much better same hand usage statistics, which sounds very cool, but as very often with custom, especially new, layouts, it has very good theoretical performance, but in real life usage it turns out that there’s some previously unforeseen flaw deal breaker

the author says they learned the layout themselves, but doesn’t say whether he knew any other layout other than qwerty…


an ortholinear layout?

edit: oh wait, “keyboard layout” apparently means the software layout, not the physical layout 🤦‍♀️



international container shipments are actually super efficient, no? i’ve heard that the last few kilometres of delivery actually cause more emissions than the entire trip they take from mexico or some other country to wherever you live…



hey guys, so i have this slave-run plantation, and i’m extremely concerned about climate change, so here’s a 200 page meta analysis to try to figure out whether using slaves is environmentally friendly 🤗…


ppl be like

excuse me, why is this completely new tablet that runs linux designed by small startup in china not price competitive and isn’t as good as this tablet from a company that’s worth trillions of dollars and has been designing tablets for a decade 😡😤


damn, that mush have sucked 😬, although there’s a weird sense of security in only having to know and use a single set of tools and being able to solely rely on those 🤷‍♀️

but i’m glad we have open source tools now :)


hey, that’s cool

i’m not even looking for anything open source necessarily, just a powerful desktop computer that doesn’t idle at 50 watts and consume more power than a toaster


didn’t swift have support for all desktop OS from the very beginning? iirc the primary issue was not the availability of language itself on any particular os, but rather the fact that all remotely useful applications of swift rely on proprietary frameworks and proprietary toolchains, like swiftUI, iOS emulator and xCode all of which is proprietary and absolutely necessary for iOS development, and neither of them work on any operating system besides macOS 🤷‍♀️



yeah, small visual customizations that don’t affect much is imo a perfect form of monetization for social media, games and lot of other things 😎


yes please, that would be awesome

most of the time I find myself reading posts here that I have some thoughts about, but most of the time it’s not worth/enough for a comment, but an emoji could capture that perfectly i think

i also think awards (yes, even paid ones) are a great idea, but that’s a separate issue




the fact is that it’s a location based address is the best part lol

like, bruh, it’s not even a hash 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️


how do people pair the two though? are there bindings available or do people use flutter as declarative ui and all the logic in rust, or smth in-between?

edit: nvm found it :)




pls let this be the time we finally get a pretty and functional out-of-the-box de 🙏🙏



damn, that sucks, stay strong 😬

you prolly know this, but there was (is) a proposal to ban cars in berlin, at least you have some hope hehe


so just as i finished writing the comment, i got a notification from one of the telegram channels I’m subscribed to that primarily writes about leftist urbanism, linking to the document outlining the budget allocation for 2022 in my city

guess what: it’s billions for for automobile road construction and maintenance/repair, and LITERALLY ZERO for bicycle infrastructure, like it’s literally zero, not a very small amount, but void, you can’t buy an ice cream for that sum

god please help me


[this comment started as a constructive piece, but ended up being a little bit of a soul pour, read at your own discretion]

damn, this shit happens where i live so often

because of immense wealth inequality in my country, as soon as someone becomes suddenly rich, they do as much as humanly possible to disassociate themselves from poor people, primarily by never moving their ass in anything but the most ugly, expensive and loud cars ever

i rode the bike around the city A LOT this summer, and the times i had to dismount because of these mfs, who were parked in bike lanes, sidewalks, street crossings (i’m normally a very calm person, but this shit just makes me instantly so angry)

normally I don’t want to spend any more attention on these assholes than necessary, so normally i would just dismount, take photos of their car from every side and, if possible, insult them in the most creative way that I can come up with, so that you can later submit these pics and they’ll receive a fine, and they mostly drive away, but every once in a while a fat bodyguard or person himself would get out and try to intimidate me and cover the license plates; there are NOT pleasant or intelligent people I can tell you, arguing with them is like trying to prove to a frog that bread doesn’t grown on trees

you can feel that disgusting feel of perceived superiority radiating from them, how they don’t give a shit about anything but themselves, how toxis of a person they are in general

it is a moments like these that you understand why billionaires exist, and don’t just stop earning money after a few hundreds of millions, you understand why governments couldn’t give a shit about climate change, or about half of their country dying in poverty

these people are human manifestations of rotting potatoes (sorry potatoes, you don’t deserve this comparison), the most disgusting pit a human soul can sink into, they would rather die than cooperate with others, or admit they’re wrong, or even entertaint the possibility that they might be wrong

what makes it all worse, is that these are the kind of people that the power hierarchies reward, and these are the kinds of people that create dumb rules, these are the kinds of right wing imbeciles that prohibit abortions, criminalize drugs, cut welfare programs etc

anyway, this is how i became an anarchist lol


i hope the development ecosystem won’t undergo the same transition as pc -> mobile 😬


heh, afer searching a little bit about it, turns out it is actually a realtively big sector 🤷‍♀️

What's your favorite software for generating fake identities?

i needed one for filling out required info on some stupid account: things like address, phone number, name etc… …





Has anyone else noticed how fruits and vegetables have been getting consistently worse over time?

we have a small community garden in which we grow some fruits and vegetables in the summer, including tomatoes, strawberries, carrots, cucumbers, apples etc, some of these plant species are many decades old and they taste amazing …
