I just released doublegit, a version control system for version control repositories: github.com/remram44/doublegit

The lack of threading in online discussion tools has truly become the bane of my existence.
GitHub, Twitter, Mastodon, Gmail... ☹️
GitLab sort of has it, but only if you remember to drop down a menu and click a special button before posting a comment (no way to change to a thread later).

Need to choose a new default port number for . Jupyter is 8888, RStudio 8787, Duplicati 8200...
I'm thinking 7465 ("TAGS" lookalike) but maybe something simpler like 8484 is better?

"Elsevier wanted to keep meeting with us, and we have a meeting scheduled for tomorrow (Friday), but yesterday they approached our faculty directly — faculty who are editors of Elsevier journals, who they have working relationships with — and also the media, and presented a rosy view of the offer they’d made to us. Their characterization of the offer left things out, and they didn’t mention what we’d proposed as conditions. They went public with it. So, we announced the end."

This is a public service announcement.

If your job uses Slack, please remember that the administrators that have been configured can view any channel and download all files and all information published, including channels that are "private" or between 2 individuals.

Your discussions are not secure and can be snooped upon, even private conversations.

In other words: there is no privacy on Slack. Period.

This is the end of this public service

(Don't ask how I know that)

You know what else is rude? Telling New York Times opinion writers to go fuck themselves. But I can still do it!

@emmanuelc Harry dit un truc similaire dans #HPMOR.

“When you do a fault analysis, there's no point in assigning fault to a part of the system you can't change afterward, it's like stepping off a cliff and blaming gravity. [...] Once you look at it from that perspective,you realize that allocating blame never helps anything unless you blame yourself, because you're the only one whose actions you can change by putting blame there.”

If you have submitted patches (or translations) to Mastodon before and they've become part of the software, you can go here:


And submit an invoice for your work 💰

@grainloom @Oz Honestly these discussions are even further muddled by the fact that most websites, that is, non-social-media websites, deal with textual links indistinguishable from other text, while platforms like Twitter, Discord and Mastodon only allow linking URLs in the first place, which have a distinct visual syntax.

Not highlighting textual links is indeed stupid.

@Oz I've always accepted accessibility improvements into Mastodon in the forms of contrast improvements and screen reader markup. But this is the first instance when it requires a major design change. The interface is busy enough as it is without needing any more horizontal lines.

I've said, let's change their color then! With sufficient color contrast, it will help color-blind people too. But the PR author is adamant that it has to be underlines or nothing.
