Some moths, like butterflies, can feature some interesting patterns. Like this Grammodes geometrica moth spotted at Coney Island, Singapore, on 30 June 2020. Luck played a part: I happen to be looking down at a patch of plants when I saw it.

Intents are a way for Android apps to exchange data and delegate actions among themselves. There are known examples of apps opening another app (a barcode scanner) to scan a barcode, or opening a file manager to pick a file.
Openintents is a public registry meant for developers to share and standardize these intents among themselves.
Just spent a few minutes trying to use Inkscape for the first time in ages; just about getting my head around it again (trying to draw a pattern for my mask). Unfortunately scaling doesn't seem to match reality on my monitor - at 165% it's a bit narrower but a bit taller than an actual piece of paper. #inkscape did seg for me once, but only on exit and I couldn't reproduce it.
It's not necessarily *my* FOSS projects that I want to be successful, but rather the FOSS ecosytem as a whole. I have stewardship over my little slice of it, but the FOSS ecosystem is a much broader (and singular) thing that I believe we all have a joint responsibility in caring for.
All free software is ours for the improving: projects will welcome our contributions and we should focus on broadening our impact.
To accomplish this, it helps to work on reducing the mental leap it takes for you to go from user to contributor, until the line between the two roles is difficult to distinguish. Contribute early, contribute often, and you'll be rewarded with a healthier free software ecosystem.
SIgh, places reopening borders - most of EU, https://www.euronews.com/2020/06/25/which-european-countries-have-opened-their-borders-ahead-of-the-summer-holiday-season, and now the UK https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-53199089
then you look at Czechia's graphs and see what was a lovely low graph starting to get back up:
gee, I wonder why...
I mean in-vheicle wifi.
USB-C is the worst technology that humankind has yet invented.
You literally can't tell from the cable or from the port which standards it actually supports.
There's USB, Thunderbolt 3 (some ports are slower than others), DisplayPort (various versions), just charging (various wattages).
How did this ever get shipped?
