I saw some "washi tape" in the store, so I tried figuring out what it was for with a internet search.

First site: GDPR notice without opt-out

Second site: GDPR notice without opt-out

Third site: GDPR notice without opt-out

Etc.

A few of them were... Qualcomm? Qualcast?

Like, I knew craft and recipe sites have the worst tracking because their users are the least technical, but c'mon, what the hell is washi tape?

I always have trouble with remembering on which usb I put my distro image, so I thought to myself, "the neon logo is round and symmetrical, let's it!".

It ended up too big 😐 and there's the issue of round crochet shifting the pattern. And general warping due bad planning...

I'll proly remake this with a half as thick thread(if I can find a place that sells this hue) and will repurpose this one as an applique for my bag.

Looking at the new logo thingies all critical thought I could have is consumed by the awful materialesque color scheme that is so popular these days.

Like, the logos survive being desaturated and having color blindness deficiency simulators applied (thank god), but these hyper-saturated dark gradients make me feel like someone is force feeding a whole 20cm diameter death by chocolate/cherry cake combo to me and not giving me any water to wash it down.

Inspired by @renardroi having some trouble with Loomis, and realising I didn't understand him myself, I decided to follow along with Loomis' instructions and make a little animation of it.

Loomis' instructions are especially quite valuable, so I added them to the bottom.

When I read articles discussing , I sometimes get a little confused why the primary thing peertube federates, the catalogue, is not discussed much?

Especially when then the first thing a certain orange website claims is that it will fail because there's no way to easily discover videos...

So, one of the things we try to do when writing release notes and docs for Krita is to try and break down the technical stuff for our less technical users, which we cannot get around when using good defaults or good ui might not be sufficient.

Which means we're right now brainstorming in the irc on how to explain what a "Lock-free hash map in the canvas tile manager" is and that it has nothing to do with videogames.

- Stares at follow buttons on mastodon social.

- vaguely stares at url

- does internet search for 'frame qr code generator'

- half an hour of messing around in inkscape later...

(reupload without cairo's little rendering glitches)

From Firefox 61 onwards, the element (SVGTextPathElement) now supports the SVG2 path and side attributes. ✨ tweeted by @MozDevNet

"These weeks I’m working on refactoring Krita’s resource systems. Resource in graphics app parlance are things like brushes, gradients, patterns — mostly small files that are stored somewhere on disk and that are loaded on start up." https://valdyas.org/fading/software/krita/the-awful-dilemma/ #krita

Meanwhile on the kde krita subforum, someone has decided that the term 'docker' for 'dockable windows' is the reason Krita cannot be used by normal people. Krita is just, y'now, reinventing the wheel too much.

... and that is the point that I stopped taking anything they said seriously anymore. (Also, moving goalposts re PT Sai's relevancy in the grand scheme of things)

For the curious, there's this comparison thingy someone on the internet made: people.xiph.org/~tdaede/av1sti

It's particularly interesting to compare the original/jpeg to the heif and avif stuff, in particular how even though there's less... tangible artifacts, the new formats do blur details in a way jpeg does not, so that'll be an interesting thing to consider when using these new formats.

Ah, it seems got finalized for realsies and will be playable in both chrome and firefox soon: chromestatus.com/feature/57298

This is at base interesting for as it is a nextgen royalty free codec(format to store videos), but it is also sorta important for us Krita devs to keep track of because much like hevc has heif, av1 will have avif, which would be a sort of nextgen jpeg.

I thought there was no xsd, so I made one, only to discover that there was one already on the acbf launchpad. orz

Still dead tired after yesterdays cleaning frenzy, I decided to instead get the comic project management tools exporter up to snuff to produce proper acbf 1.1 files, that get through the linter with only two errors(one for a bug in the official xsd, and another in a bunch of minor 1.2 features). So that's ready for the 4.1 release.
