Watched the first episode of . Very gripping but a lot impending doom as well.

Jumping from 's ESR build to the build is definitely an improvement. I'm not really missing Chrome that much.

this is Betty Holberton. she invented the concept of breakpoints for debugging. ever heard of her? you probably haven't, because our field sucks ass and constantly erases its own history.

Hey @xvilo did the recent upgrade come with any notes about changing API's? @kensanata 's plugin hasn't been able to login for the last day and a bit.

Finished the day with finding the bug I've been hunting most of this week (clue be careful using size_t when creating address masks for your guests). Today I shall submit a mega PR with a week or two of accumulated patches.

I have come to the realisation that it might take a while for to issue a new release so it's time to build from tip of tree on my machines so I can enjoy roaming with terminals - and of course themes 🌈

Anecdotally my local ward was seeing brisker voting yesterday than for most local elections. However that data point is very dependent on when people walk their dogs. It will be interesting to see both the results and turnouts on Sunday.
