Today: took kids to the park to enjoy this beautiful weather. Got back, set up a GitHub account for my daughter and showed her the basics of Git using ‘gitk’ as the client. Also got Nasu compiled and running, but an hour of technical stuff got her younger sister jealous and so we must break until tomorrow.

Proud dad over here, though! ☺️

@neauoire as a general rule we never open anything in a new tab because it's a bad UX; you can always middle click if you want a new tab but you can't tell if a link is going to force one and there's no way to prevent it from happening if it would

@sir Would I be correct in interpreting "...the default permissions" to mean that the repository owner could enable public posting if (s)he really likes working that way?

I am all for sane defaults, but I also see the value of options.

@amolith @robby I totally agree. Happily, things like Proton and Vulkan are bringing more and more games to Linux, so I have less and less of a need to worry about keeping Windows for gaming.

Converting my family to use Linux instead is a challenge, though. . .

@amolith A lot of the web developer consultants that I work with prefer using a Mac for Angular/React/Vue/etc development over using Windows for the same.

Personally, I'd use Linux for this type of development, but if my only choices were between Mac and Windows ... I would also pick the Mac.

@ataraxia937 I voted "Other". Like many of the commenters, I also run with a mix of VPS and in-my-basement servers.

My favorite Carl Sagan quote is one where he's answering a child that just asked him a question:

“I don’t know the answer. Maybe no one knows. Maybe when you grow up, you’ll be the first to find out.”

@ma1uta @sir Quoting from the article: "It is just that the modern mail client has intentionally moved towards HTML"

That, right there, is a huge part of the problem.

Nice to see that Linux Unplugged is independent again. They’re now working toward a member funded model, I just signed up.
