Yeah, I had to as a SteamOS beta user all the way to a GamerOS (now ChimeraOS) user today I just am a sucker for wanting Steam on Linux to thrive.

Excited to say I've accepted an offer from GitHub, and I start in July!

Love to see brand new GitHub accounts spam our repos with cryptominers in GitHub Actions. Real cool. Especially cool that they keep running after the PR is locked and closed and the is user reported and blocked from the org. Especially cool that it blocks all CI on all our repos.

Here comes libadwaita! Read about our plans to make GNOME apps and GTK 4 even better, and about the future of libhandy: adrienplazas.com/blog/2021/03/

within the lightbulb lived a fly
who swooped and laughed
lived and died.
throughout it's life
the light was warm
the nights were long
and dreams were sewn
to be relived at dawn

We *really* need to establish signing commits with a verified key as common practice in software development.

For some critical projects it should probably even be a strict requirement for collaboration 🤔

(for some it already is, but it's still the exception, not the rule)

Still took 20 mins to build for aarch64 though. But more than 2x pinephone, and easier to manage. I'll take it.

Finally got gnome builder set up to x-compile so I can build flatpaks for Pinephone. Just involved installing some qemu packages. Now the easy part of building, scp and install over SSH, run on Pinephone!

I'm glad I tried building from source on pinephone but still much easier to build for it than on it.

For fun I bootstrapped a mobile friendly GTK Rust app and trying to build it on Pinephone now, in GTK Builder. Build took 50 mins (and almost all of content is default GTK Rust flatpack app), so probably impractical to ever dev on it. Plus couldn't access the running app. Trying create bundle to see if that works.

Libhandy works great, and building on desktop fine. Just need to work out how to target Pinephone from it.

Rage installed Arch last night so I could compile latest libhandy as handy widgets weren't showing up in builder visual editor and now now I have

I wanted to work on app for my and now I can!

I bumble and I buzz

Yet nothing comes out

My speech is cobbled

And upturned by Daisies

There on the open field

Adjacent to my beeting-

Heart - which fumbles

At its pulse - Such

Pretty heads they have

Those Daisies of the field

They splayed their blooms

For my grand view

And I am left - a Bumbling fool.
