I keep seeing this really odd interaction, where the second I start google-chrome or a newer version (>= 4), my currently running processes start overloading the CPU.

Firefox becomes unresponsive for several seconds, burning CPU. Yesterday I decided to watch FF in gdb and saw that it's accessing thousands of font files , each causing a "SIGSYS, Bad system call".

Can anyone guess why FF gets SIGSYS, failing to access a world-readable file? Bug report: bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.

Not being satisfied with the 5 looks, I've ended up creating an SVG sprite file from the project. This includes all icons from Font Awesome 4.

Here are the gory details:

So I've been working on "upgrading" the Font Awesome package used by the new UI from 4.7.0 to 5.9.0.

Just — in the end I found that the icons look way more crispy and professional in the 4.7.0 version.

Is it just me, or did anyone else experience this with ?

mail.gnome.org/archives/beast/

Just uploaded the beast-0.14.0 tarball, AppImage and Git tags.
Working on the release announcement now...

I'm setting up for a test installation. Should be easy using the community maintained docker image:
hub.docker.com/_/redmine/

Except for two things that aren't obvious:

a) You need to figure to create the default ticket structures, as described here (github closed issue search is your friend): github.com/docker-library/redm

b) To reduce fragmentation, btrfs users might want to re-create /usr/src/redmine/sqlite/redmine.db to add chattr +C

HEY.

I'm Looking for programming related accounts to follow.

Please boost this pineapple if you program so I know to follow you

Summer definitely has arrived in Hamburg, has been a hot day here.
I inflated the wading pool for the kids, which was well received. After all we had 30°C, sweating hot!

Then I read "India heatwave temperatures pass 50 Celsius", that really puts things in perspective...

I am working on new UI controls (numbers, switches, text, etc) for ( based).

Sometimes it'd be nice to have a designer on the project who is familiar with software to bounce ideas back and forth with.

Courtesy of Stefan Westerfeld (who yet needs to create a Mastodon account), we now have fluidsynth2 support in master. And that means .sf3 ( + ) support.

Hm, C++14 supports lambda arguments of type 'auto', i.e. /nice/ function templates.
That allows me to throw away hundreds of lines of visitor code.

Just came back from (industrial production fair in Hannover).

It's incredible how many products have to carry "" in the title or description these days, it's infected almost everything that deals with sensor or log data.
One presenter literally said "we also put 'blockchain' into the sensors software because the client WANTED it."

OTOH, it's nice to see that fabrication companies increasingly base their software stacks on and have learned to contribute back.

The source code is currently being rewritten in various places (CI, IPC, Build system, etc)

During the process, the various pieces of Beast documentation were converted to Markdown, structured and merged into a single cohesive document. Formulas can now facilitate (and ) and syntax highlighting was introduced. It is rendered to and and the was adjusted to closely match the Latex based PDF looks.

Since I started moving to Electron, I've also had several interesting discussions (but not
"hateful" encounters) with people claiming that it must be slow or resource wasteful compared to native toolkits, both of which aren't really true in Beast's development context. Development itself is vastly superior though.
