For an enduring example of just what even a "programming language" can be when the author doesn't care about programming language tradition and dials that feeling up to eleven, I highly recommend Graham Nelson's "Inform 7".

Is an I7 program "a set of logical assertions"? Yes.

Is it "English language text"? Also yes.

Is it chunks of a BASIC-like procedural language? Also yes.

Was it designed to run on a circa-1979 8-bit micro VM? Yes.

Imagine what this implies.

Gajim 1.4.0 has been released 🚀

After more than a year of development, it’s finally time to announce the release of Gajim 1.4.0! 🎉

Gajim 1.4 series comes with a completely redesigned message window and conversation management. Workspaces allow you to organize your chats to keep matters separate where needed. These changes were only possible by touching a lot of Gajim’s code base, and we appreciate all the feedback we got from you.

""The solution isn't to push users back to the command line. The solution must be to bring composability to the graphical environment."" -- @ajroach42

I wanna talk about this for a bit because I think it's an important piece of the UI puzzle that we just somehow haven't ever yet realised is a thing we need.

1) Text is a thing that we can a) edit and b) copy/paste

2) GUI constructs, on the other hand, generally we just... can't. They're like hot-glued to the screen.

3) but what if we could?

Humanity can not be made equal by declarations on paper. Unless the material conditions for equality exist, it is worse than mockery to pronounce men equal.

A Gnome developer post about this: https://blogs.gnome.org/uraeus/2022/05/11/why-is-the-open-source-driver-release-from-nvidia-so-important-for-linux/
«What has been released is an out of tree source code kernel driver which has been tested to support CUDA usecases on datacenter GPUs. There is code in there to support display, but it is not complete or fully tested yet. Also this is only the kernel part, a big part of a modern graphics driver are to be found in the firmware and userspace components and those are still closed source. [...] The driver also only supports NVidia Turing chip GPUs and newer, which means it is not targeting GPUs from before 2018» - not that much exciting at all, i think.

You know a software project is good when the relevant Wikipedia entry has a subsection called "Aesthetics"

#REMINDER

Never, NEVER trust a spell checker, not even if it has a semantic AI looking for odd combinations of words.

Early this morning this ship was loaded with "legs", and probably because of that she ran aground.

Every AI knows that "legs" can be associated to the verb "run" more than "logs"…

Il portale dell'ASP ha una pagina fatta malissimo, per cui ci sono diversi modi per arrivare al form di login, ma SOLO UNO è quello giusto, tutti gli altri portano a dead end.
