Trick for newest version of Firefox on Linux: Prevent scrollbars from automatically hiding 

Firefox on Linux recently introduced a "feature" that fades out the scrollbar if you don't move your mouse. If you're like me and don't like invisible scrollbars, you can simply deactivate this "feature".

Go to the address bar and type "about:config" (without the quotes, obviously). Agree to be careful. Search for "widget.gtk.overlay-scrollbars.enabled" and toggle the entry from "true" to "false" by double-clicking it. Just close the about:config tab and you're done. :-)

(Sorry, I had to delete and redraft, since I first got the name of the preference wrong...)

Today I tried switching from Blender to Shotcut for editing video for YouTube and it's been like 2 hours and I feel like I've already a) accomplished as much work as I did in Blender but in half the time and also b) actually feel like I COULD figure out how to get all my ideas out even though I don't already know exactly how, and I feel about equally familiar with both programs despite spending UNKNOWABLY GREATER AMOUNTS OF HOURS trying to "learn Blender"

tl;dr not all is the same and I wish I'd done this sooner :weary_technologist:

FediVision bot 

Tomorrow I'll be posting a blog about running the #FediVision bot, what I did this year, and what I want to do different next year.

If anyone has feedback, suggestions, or offers of help for next years edition of Fedivision, I'll be happy to hear it tomorrow :)

I have already taken note of a few good pieces of feedback, notably that the accessibility was just not good enough this year.

geht um Rechtschreibung, aber nicht judgy sondern erfreut 

Wir finden es so krass süß, wenn auf Willhaben jemand "Gebäckträger" und "Gebäckträgertaschen" verkauft. Also weil. Ich verwend die Dinger z.B. richtig gerne für Gebäck. Impurrtant business, bin mit meiner Zimtschnecke am Gebäckträger unterwegs zum Chilloutspot :3
– Libelle

Has anything been written on energy consumption of activity pub things? Just wondering, it's not urgent or anything.

Infos nicht-binär Frankfurt & Hessen, de 

Habe gerade den Flyer hier bekommen. Klingt voll cool und wir sind schon sehr gespannt.

Food 

Mhhhhm, applying heat cream to my hands before eating my sandwich is giving me really good ideas for how to improve this homemade lentil spread. With ginger and chilies.

Fine, here's my insightful take on manhood:

How to tell if you're a man: Does it make you happy to think of yourself as one? If you're not sure, try it out. Take as much time as you need. Much love to you on this journey.

How to be a man: Think of yourself as one. If you feel safe doing so, tell other people.

How to be a good man: Be a good person while thinking of yourself as a man.

Anyway they've been hit hard by Covid and now the printer broke, please help save the compañeroas' shop so that I can keep buying Zapatista flags and socialised #EZLN merch!

We now have a hammock in our room.

Also, we were unreasonably harsh to someone who probably hates us forever now.

Good night.

… but I'm not looking forward to the food coop plenary at all. There will be so many boring discussions of things that turn out not to be true anyway.

When really we're all just mourning bc of the sudden "we stop making vegetables" message, and rly just wan tour old vegetable source back.

(Actually all the vegetable sources look great, they're all in a very similar price range, they have varying interpretations of community supported agriculture but they all sound nice)

:o vegetables!! vegetables!!
– ? Lexi maybe

damn right I will

vegetable option A: asshole
vegetable option B: your website is terrible and I bet you vastly overestimate our use of celery

– drgnfl

Show thread

Hmm drgnfly but the main danger to us rn is that we have to form opinions about the different vegetable sources for our food coop, will you do that by being mean about it on the internet or what

Someone in here is like "you're embarrassing us, you're just hyperarousedly being mean about random stuff, calm down" and I can't prove them wrong BUT I will absolutely not admit that I Can Not Chill Bc We Are Probably Being Encircled By Dangerous Whatevers Right This Minute And I Have To Be Ready

Gameification unhappiness 

Not to forget "we know how behavioral addiction works and we are going to use it so you can feel like you're worth something for five minutes a day after you solved your code puzzle or did your breathing exercises or whatever (your pay-to-win account made possible by 1 ad before and after each thing, but we know how to make sure you don't mind)"

Gameification unhappiness 

Ok actually gameification is itself such a disappointment. It sounds like "we make things engaging and creativity-stimulating" when really it's "we read something that deduces human nature from some economics experiment and are here to make Everyone learn the thing Fast and Efficiently, as measured by our scale where language proficiency is equal to 99.5% on this translation exercise".
