May I present to you:

Actually usable scroll bars.

Real-world use cases:

1. Scrolling up/down.

2. Scrolling left/right.

3. At-a-glance indication of position.

4. At-a-glance indication of size of current working area in proportion to the total working area.

#TeamBringBackVisibleScrollBars
A screenshot of microsoft paint program in windows xp with actually usable scroll bars. They are clearly visible, have shadows to make them stand out, and the bar slider is sized proportionally to indicate what portion of the entire working area is currently in view.

fucsia reshared this.

another thing to remember is that almost all apps looked like this. So you didn't need to figure out for each so what's the scrollbar like, what's a button, what's a link, etc. Apps tended to avoid custom controls, even Photoshop, Macromedia creativity stuff, and similar.

Shahaan reshared this.

My opinion: visible scrollbars are indeed useful, but they don't need to be that wide.

I very rarely drag the scrollbars or interact with them, since I'm using mouse wheel or keyboard shortcuts instead; and those large Windows scrollbars from the screenshot just take up too much valuable screen space.

So I vote for visible scrollbars which are very thin - mainly as a location indicator. Luckily those are available with modern GUI themes anyway.

Public Service Announcement!

You're allowed to turn off notifications, or mute them, or put your phone on silent, or even turn your phone off. You're allowed to *not* be available to anyone/everyone 24/7. You're allowed to take time off for yourself, and you're allowed to spend the whole day doing nothing if that's what your health, emotional or physical or mental, requires. If you need permission, this is me giving you permission to do nothing for as long as you need to. <3
this is something that it took me a very long time to figure out!
I can't even sit down to read a book without feeling guilty for not doing something "productive" :(
I think it's valid to do all that even if you don't need it or your health requires it, but if you just want to. Why be a free human being if we can't do that :)

This week's episode of @fossandcrafts features short discussions about a range of topics that @cwebber and I had thoughts about but weren't big enough to do a whole episodes!

https://fossandcrafts.org/episodes/36-topics-of-interest.html

Lots of crafty things and "free soft wear," including designing & making my purse and the new clothing labels in action!

Shoutouts to:
@mindspillage for coining the term "free soft wear", & @valhalla for resurfacing it again in the irc channel recently & making their own clothing labels!

PROCLAMA

Sento che alcuni malintenzionati traggono partito da misure militari e mosse strategiche delle truppe, per diffondere voci allarmanti ed indurre la popolazione ad atti inconsiderati, come per esempio a convegni in massa in singoli luoghi.
Mentre rammento, che gli autori e i propagatori di voci allarmanti incorrono nel rigore delle Leggi militari, esorto la popolazione a non lasciarsi fuorviare da simili rumori né indurre a siffatti passi inconsiderati, essendoché si sono già prese le più efficaci misure per mantenere l'ordine legale, e ristabilirlo, ovunque venisse turbato, per cui i trasgressori delle Leggi non potrebbero che imputare a sé stessi le gravi conseguenze della loro contravvenzione.

Everyone always says cats are liquids, but one of the chief qualities of a liquid is that it is incompressible.

But one quick image search for "If I Fits, I Sits" reveals that cats are far from incompressible and are thus something closer to a gas.
they are felifluids. Not quite solid, liquid, or gas, but their own thing with their own laws of physics :blobcatmaths:
This is true, and they do exhibit some entirely unique physical properties such as a tendency to coalesce *more* densely in areas of higher heat.

"As for testing: We have "unstable" and "stable" repos, that is already more than a few volunteers can cope with."

Testing can (and should) be fully automate-able. Maybe 'plugwash' (@d.o.), the sole maintainer of raspbian.org repos, can help with that?
Sure, that could be automated. But Mobian is just a few packages on top of stock Debian testing. A 3 stage distro-setup is not really going to provide a lot of added value. The diff between mobian "unstable" and "stable" is just not that big: https://packages.mobian-project.org/


my preciooouuuuuuuuuus has arrived!



Thanks to a combination of coincidences, last week I ordered 50 garment labels in woven cotton (pictured above as they arrived from the german language shop, as a continuous strip, with the writing in white over a black background) with the hashtag #FreeSoftWear to sew on the garments I make for which a Free as in Freedom pattern is available .

Now I need to be better at actually writing compilationsewing instructions for the valentina patterns I put on my git repo, because right now they tend to be... obvious to a quite experienced sewist who already did something similar?

Bevilacqua Gustavino reshared this.


I've made myself a new pair of Rosalia Stockings.

It's my second pair (a few years after the first, because I got distracted), and this time I've solved the fitting issues with my first pair, so now I can make ALL THE STOCKINGS!

Mostly the pattern is symmetrical for the right and left leg, but my feet are very much not symmetrical, so I changed the stocking to be more pointy rather than square-toed.



It's made from the leftovers of a cut of black cotton jersey that I was using for something that was supposed to be a nightgown, but is looking more like a little black dress (yay for drafting my own patterns and always having predictable results :D )

Also, I've finally found a use for at least two repeats of a piece of plastic lace that I got for free from a shop more than a decade ago because it had been discolored by the sun (at strategically placed positions that made it harder to use in any kind of length). Also, have I mentioned “plastic”? I wanted to use it for something, but it's scratchy enough that I didn't want it anywhere where it could touch my skin. Here it's safely on the outside, it helps distinguish this pair from future pairs I'm going to make, and it looks nice.

Regardless of whether Apple bows down to pressure on this, it shows you how they think. It’s their phone, not yours. Tim Apple is your daddy and as long as you live under his roof, you live under his rules. And he’s just made it clear he can enter your room whenever he likes and search your drawers. Might be time to think about moving out.

Problem is, where do you go? Do you move in with creepy uncle Google next door? No, he’s even worse.

And your banking app only works on iOS and Android…
This is who I'm looking at switching to for the time being. Yeah I'd love to get a PinePhone or Librem but I need something more functional than that. Now they have phones in the US too so I have a path forward. It'll start off as my experimental phone I guess and then we will see where things go from there.

I haz a #bustle cage!



(picture of a bustle cage in off-white fabric with lace over the boning and box pleats at the bottom)

There is a gaping hole at the top because the top row of boning is a bit too high and I didn't have enough fabric to pleat it correctly to the waistband; I will probably add a few more tapes to keep that bit of fabric taut.

It's based on https://adamselindisdress.wordpress.com/2014/06/21/how-to-make-a-victorian-cage-bustle/ (and the instructions on the book by the same author), but I've added tapes on the inside instead of a full inside back piece so that the width can be regulated, but most importantly making it was much easier, as even the second side seam is done on a flat cage instead of a 3D shape.
The tapes at the top have been added, and I've finished hemming by hand all 24 tape ends.

Next step, finishing the summer corset before summer ends, now that I have the missing notions :D

Next next step, petticoat.
Oh, and my 1890s skirt fit on top of it, so by adding a draped overskirt I may be able to change enough of the look that I may be able to get the look of two eras with just one skirt (which, considering the price of that fabric, is a very nice thing :D )

crypto is short for "cryptography"

if you want a shorter word for "cryptocurrency", the word you are looking for is "ponzi"
ELI5 why crypto is a Ponzi scheme but everything else non-perishable you can buy and sell isn't
also, how would you make a decentralised censorship-resistant digital currency that doesn't have those properties?
forgot to tag the booster
@wolf480pl
IMO many financial instruments other than cryptocurrencies are ponzi schemes as well, or at least speculative bubbles. It may as well be impossible to create a censorship-resistant digital currenct that isn't prone to become such a bubble, but I don't know enough abiut economy to be able to tell.

Maybe calling all cryptocurrencies a ponzi scheme is an exaggeration, but calling it "crypto" isn't good either.
In the Hebrew Wikipedia the name used means "distributed currency".

I haven't tried any of the patterns, but this looks extremely interesting.

#FreeSoftWear
That's the fork of valentina, right? https://valentinaproject.bitbucket.io/

I had been using it before the DRAMA, and now it's even in Debian (and it keeps being developed).

To be honest, I'm glad that somebody else is doing the maintenance and dealing with the drama bits, because the program itself is pretty good.

I've seen that the website uses the same approach to pattern making, and I wonder if there is a way to convert between those formats, but yesterday evening I couldn't find anything about it.

Content warning: pattern drafting



I've made a list of all the #sewing projects I have in various stages of planning / making (and for which I already have fabric and most notions). It's 17 items long. no, wait, make it 18, but it didn't fit in the page. Plus at least four fixes to existing garments (probably more).

I need to stop starting new projects (yeah, right, like that's going to happen).
oh hey, you do things with thread. do you crochet or knit? Did i ever share stitchy with you?

No, I don't think you've ever shared it, and I needed something like this for a current project, thanks.

only... I think I've found a bug :D

It is possible to select just one colour in the first screen, but if you do so, you get Uncaught Error: colorCount should be between 2 and 20. To get one color, call getColor() instead of getPalette() in the javascript console (followed by Uncaught TypeError: getColor is not a function

Using two colours work fine.
And this is the pattern I've generated as a test :)

oooh, a bug! I'll play with that this weekend!
