fischertechnik launched the smart home kit last year. A very good move on a conceptual level. Smart home and IoT (internet of things) are rapidly growing technology sectors. The unique placement of the TXT allows it to be a perfect introductory platform to this world. However, the smart home platform from fischertechnik relies on a …

Developers like to help other developers. Many times via text chats like IRC, Slack, Gitter or Discord. This article is mainly aimed at developers asking for help. However it can also be applied to other situations, even if the concepts don’t fully apply. Now for the short overview for the very impatient, though especially those …
Emotes are a very important feature of Twitch chat culture. Because of this, there aren’t just emotes you get from subscribing to broadcasters, but also extensions like BetterTTV and FrankerFaceZ that add more emotes to be used in Twitch chat. Many broadcasters have an image in their panels showing the emotes that are available for …
Bot Land is a browser-based game that is still in development. You can learn more at https://bot.land. I streamed creating this tier list. You can watch the VOD of it on YouTube: https://youtu.be/F-PUJEErrQA Attack/Offense Vanilla Lasers Pros Blind fire Cons Countered by reflect Not a good secondary weapon Attacking Any defense that doesn’t reflect they’re …
Most browser extensions do a thing. And they do that thing in their isolated little world. Many of them do their thing pretty well. Many of them are built to do many things. Many of them are built to do just one little thing. But only few of them talk to other extensions to do …
In early 2016 the Swiss Mozilla Community met up to discuss goals and community structure. During a discussion on the state of our Twitter account @MozillaCH I pitched the idea of having a tool to manage content like replies with contributors instead of just people with direct access to the account.
It’s been quite a while since I last posted on here, and interestingly about the same topic: code coverage analysis in Firefox extensions. And since then Firefox has gotten a completely new extension system. I’ve been really busy porting my extensions and not writing blog posts. The add-on SDK conveniently came with a test runner …
Code coverage statistics are very useful. They tell you how much of your code never gets executed during the unit tests. So you always know what to write unit tests for, because 100% coverage doesn’t exist. And sometimes you can’t cover all code. That’s why normally you are happy, if the coverage is above a …
Recently Mozilla restricted access to ftp.mozilla.org, instead you can download nightlies from archive.mozilla.org. Sadly this broke existing methods to download Firefox nightly for automated unit tests on Travis CI. I’ve written a node module, that takes care of downloading nightly versions of Firefox desktop and Android.
Windows ist leider sehr stur, welche Ordner man zu Windows Bibliotheken hinzufügen kann und welche nicht. Wenn ein Ordner nicht indiziert ist, muss er lokal synchronisiert werden und die lokale Kopie kann dann in die Bibliothek aufgenommen werden. Aber das ist ja je nach dem nicht das Ziel der Sache. Unter Windows 8 nutzen die …
@Alonealastalovedalongthe I find myself having trouble finding things on google maps, just because the rendering is often so bland with little distinction for different kinds of features. Sure, you can get simpler OSM renderings too, but most of them have more differentiation, still.

Part of a project that I've previously worked on has just been open sourced. With all its tech debt and everything. Pretty neat system though. https://github.com/baubadil/doreen
@Venty also spezi vanille?
One of the two IRC networks I had a private @matrix bridge for just updated their chat server and added their own matrix homeserver and IRC bridge 😍

There's an interesting aside about legibility of fonts in this article about only using one space (duh!): https://practicaltypography.com/are-two-spaces-better-than-one.html
I know that the reason most people/brands will post screenshots of posts on other platforms, is because conversion rates of images are much better than "unexpanded" links to other platforms (which your average client will show). Plus, if the original content is deleted (for whatever reason by whatever entity), a screenshot will still exist (and thus make you vulnerable to a ban?). There's also the immediate benefit of citing your source when using a link instead of a screenshot.
Oh, and don't get me started on lost semantics of the content. An alt tag is useless at conveying complex semantics of image contents. Just use text when you want text.
If you're a software engineer/programmer and have never seen/interacted with a visually disabled or blind person using their digital device, I highly recommend it. It's extremely interesting and will help you understand why it's the small design decisions you make that can impact them a lot. Even if you build products for "professional" markets where accessibility is (sadly) not a selling point, use it as a decision maker when you have the freedom of choice.
This completely ignores seeing people with visual or reading disabilities. Obviously, one would hope that big sites have designs optimized for legibility for dyslexic users. But being able to choose your own contrast ratio and font is still much better, to optimize for your custom issues.
Ever since the "viral social internet" became a thing, so around the time 9gag launched, I guess, I've been bothered by sharing things as screenshots. Not just because sharing a screenshot of an image usually adds black bars and reduces resolution a lot. Mostly due to lost accessibility of the content, especially when sharing text content. Most social networks don't allow custom alt texts, so blind users are at the mercy of platforms to OCR contents and set the alt text.
To my understanding that "overriding" happens when Firefox tries to spawn a new process and the new process is running the new version. There is currently no way to assert compatibility between old and new content processes, so Firefox tells you that it can no longer display webpages (and you should restart). I am not familiar enough with chromium to know how it handles this case.
@brwyatt Do you have Firefox installed via your package manager? My understanding is that this may lead to this issue, else you shouldn't see this.
Humble Bundle offers md5 hashes to verify downloads and nothing else. Neat.
Imagine if #gitlab had federation for "social" features (stars, activity etc.). Federating the git part is sadly much more complicated. And so we'll probably have more than one gitlab account for the forseeable future.
Reason 5923 why I hate Electron apps: they write cache files into my ~/.config making backups more tedious because you have to exclude their 1-4 cache directories. It's a solvable problem from the app dev's side, it's just something they actively have to do because Electron's default sucks.
Kabelradio ist schon stark vor dem Aussterben bedroht durch äussere Faktoren. Suche nach einer Frequenzliste, aber wenn ich auf https://t.co/d0BKZ3XewE meine Adresse angebe, kommt nur, dass es bei mir leider kein Breitbandangebot gäbe. Hab Glasfaser aber ok.
@RyanBErickson Hm, https://t.co/EiVbXsddmu translates schlager as hit, which according to wikipedia can be accurate, but it is much more accurate in other contexts when you don't use it as a name for a genre.
@RyanBErickson Schlager = regional (well, all of the german speaking region) music genre that is mainly popular with older people. Alternatively: beater... Sendung = Show, TV show in this case.
Im Postauto stehen immer so überraschende Meldungen. "Schlagersendung hat primär älteres Publikum"
@KohlerSolutions But only 146 lines changed? :P
@bindermichi Am liebsten mit 9gag Wasserzeichen und schwarzen Balken vom Screenshot in der facebook App.
@whoismrrobot where can I watch season 4 in Switzerland? It seems it's not available on @PrimeVideo this time around.
@Touni Man hat halt keine Zeit fürs Reisen mehr. Nur noch Stress beim Einsteigen und Aussteigen und dann dort sein...
25 Minuten Verspätung bei einem Zug der alle 30 Minuten verkehrt ist dann eigentlich auch ein Ausfall.
Meine Todo Liste hat mich eben an diese Liste erinnert: https://t.co/Cszz4fYK3p. Aber freedomvote von der digiges ist noch etwas interessanter, eigentlich.
@igwigg Jo, sonst hätten sie wenigstens zeit für qa gehabt...
