Calling us "an open alternative to Lightroom" gives the impression that we're trying to match Lightroom feature for feature, but we're not some knock off. We do things our own way, we have feature that Lightroom doesn't have and we lack some features that Lightroom does have.

We're a RAW editing application.

Don’t walk behind me, I may not lead.
Don’t walk in front of me, I may not follow.
Just walk beside me and be my friend.

Finland bought its first supercomputer in 1989, a used Cray X-MP. It has 4 vector processors running at a bit over 100 MHz, 128 MiB RAM, and 38.4 GiB storage. It was used for predicting weather and scientific research.

My phone has 8 CPU cores at up to 1.8 GHz, 3 GiB RAM, and 192 GiB storage. It's mostly used for reading books and bother other people.

So you still have to trust Facebook to do what they say they are doing, which I most assuredly do not.

It's that time of the year again.

I've been using Linux for about 30 years. Mine was the first installation, given Linus didn't install it on his computer, he grew it on top of an existing Minix install, replacing it piecemeal.

My first contribution is over 30 years ago, about April, 1991, the sprintf (now snprintf) function in the kernel.

It's been a fun ride.

The famous black and white "checkerboard" pattern became associated with Ska in the mid-60s when a group of Chess champions from Jamaica played some of their favorite music for the locals while in London for an international chess tournament.
The rest, as they say, is history.

Just read a post asking Eugen to resign from developing Mastodon and I really have to ask: what are you folks smoking?

It’s his project. It’s open source. Fork it if you want to. But what kind of mind-blowing sense of entitlement drives you to think you can tell someone they should stop working on something they’ve built?


Nothing makes me feel quite like such a dunce as when my DIY friends say "Oh, that's a $5 part to fix!" and I think to myself "...and skills I don't possess."

Pet Peeve: People talking about "the Internet" when they mean "the Web". The web rides atop the Internet. It is not the whole of the Internet.

Just something positive about the #fediverse 

I made a hasty conclusion based on faulty troubleshooting yesterday (lol) and you know what I realized?

NOT ONCE did I receive insults or threats. I guarantee you, if this was #Twitter, it would have been very different.

So thanks everyone, for making the #fediverse a nice place. 😊

I just heard my new favorite palindrome:

"Do geese see God?" :goose_caesar:

#DuckDuckGo provided a great article about the risks of those public #USB-charging stations.

I think I wrote here about this quite a while ago, but here we go again:

There is something called "USB-Condom". Technically it's a chip that only takes the power from the USB connection, then implements the USB fast charging protocols and provides a socket for your regular USB cable to plug into. Just if you wonder why this pieces cost 6-7€ per piece.


Got a report that the #Finnish translation of Mastodon had some inaccuracies (presumably machine-translated by someone), if anyone who speaks 🇫🇮 wants proofreader privileges on Crowdin, let me know


if your Linux "cat" command gets stuck and you need to cancel it, you must run "killall -9 cat" because the process has 9 lives
