I always love his designs and hand motions.

Has anyone ever heard of some Blender add-on that uses some online world map tiles (e.g. a WMS feed) and feeds them to a texture in a way so you can zoom on parts of a map and the tiles get loaded depending on your camera zoom and location ?

You know what sucks about Blender?
Once you know it well enough, you get frustrated by every other computer program you use because now you know what's possible.

Chernobyl's disaster gives a more valid than ever lesson to us 

Governments worldwide exhibit similar signs of muffling flaws in our systems to keep appearing like the situation is under control, except today it's about the planetary system.
The HBO series shows very well how much we should stop following bad practices/instructions no matter how far down the system has gotten because if we don't, 40 years from now we'll be "begging for that bullet".

Why are you not joining forces more?
I see more and more clones of projects made by single developers and from where I stand it looks like they don't join the existing projects because they want recognition. The only projects I know that got people to join in numbers and don't have any clone are those that are too complex to tackle alone (e.g. Blender)

I need to understand FOSS developers better by now because somehow, I'm starting to perceive selfishness in the community. So please explain and correct me :

@LPS Hi,
sorry, can you remind me that youtube alternative front-end you've been using for a while?

Hey mastonauts , who here has deleted their account permanently ?
I'm slowly working towards it but I'd like to know your experience if you did it, mostly concerning Youtube subscriptions.

Music streaming rant 

YT music is such a crazy mess.
Plenty of albums that are linked to the wrong artists (which you can't report, obviously), official songs that change from music only to video or disappear after a while.
I can't wait to be done with all the big commercial music streaming services and have all my music on my computer but mostly, I can't wait for all the great musicians to wake up and go anywhere within the plenty of great alternatives that exist.

No movie in history has ever gotten this simple scientific fact right: 

if time slows down around you, everything should get darker, since the number of photons that bounce off objects in one second is spread over a longer period of time.

OpenStreetMap recently added "toy library" as a category. If you know a game and toy library, update its category to make it easier to find.

Jee, seriously, Blender 2.7x already had the best user interface in the world, but 2.8's UI & UX will make aliens jealous accross the whole galaxy.
It freaks me out every time I watch the livestream or just fiddle with it !

I've never been a Debian user but from my (very) recent job experience it seems that using Debian rather than newer distros and sticking to the official repository to keep stability in a team work environment is an outdated idea. Things break and crash more often than I've ever seen. Does it sound to you like something you'd expect from having this setup nowadays?
