@schestowitz the issue probably is IBM is huge and one hand doesn't know what the other is doing, even when working at cross purposes

One neat thing I noticed about writing e2e tests: it kind of forces you to get a11y right. If something isn't observable for your tests, it probably isn't observable to an AT.

I imported my old (and otherwise unavailable) Kuro5hin diary entries from ~15 years ago into my Wordpress blog. I also shared the code I used if you want to do the same. mako.cc/copyrighteous/my-kuro5

@mako ah k5 and a8! Ancient history is coming back.

The exchange rate is 1 bird in hand = 2 birds in bush

so you think, 2 birds in hand = 4 in bush.
So you pick up a second bird and the value of your portfolio increases...

but then, as you attempt to balance 32 birds on your shoulders, you realize the exchange rate has reversed

and you would rather watch a flock of 16 in the bush than be covered in birds

@cwebber The algorithm is ok I suppose, but... well I don't like the font it's in

@ElfLord The first few are strange but after a while you begin to like them.

@architect it's RRD files? They do odd, but correct, things

@technomancy yeah figured it was something like that. Those "good reasons" times are few

@dagoth I've had Samsung phones since the S4. They're great phones and just work. You cannot delete the Samsung apps but you can deactivate them and they're not as bad as say on a PC with the bundled stuff.

The phones just work, usually their radios are a bit better so 3/4g works a touch better than cheaper options.

Switching from iOS to android will be a bit of a jar but it's worth it.

@technomancy for me it would depend on how it was asked and why. If it was to assist another opensource project I'd be more likely to or dual license.

My problem is a lot of the stuff I work on is 20 years old and has had a lot of contributors so relicensing is a bit of a nightmare.

There's a very special feeling that you get when people complain about you licensing your software under the GPL and tell you that you must the license, and you just reply "no".
