@amiloradovsky This is why i don't get why to-do lists and trello clones are so popular for project management. They're worse than worthless because I have to keep all that context in my head *separately* from the rest of the context. On top of remembering stuff I constantly have to make decisions on which part to remember and also remember how to connect it to the rest of stuff in to-do list/board.
The car I ordered pulls up, IDs me, and opens the door. I get in.
"Lock. Full privacy. Quiet. Lights out."
The windows blacken, and noise cancelling is activated. I sit back and breathe. After a couple of minutes, the car asks "Destination?"
"I am where I need to be," I say.

@Dylanrod Fedora is good if you need to run Linux as your main system. It's very stable and easy to use.
If you want to learn I'd suggest picking a bit more hands-on distro. I like Gentoo. Or you can try Slackware. Try setting up something complex. In the process you'll face many p̶r̶o̶b̶l̶e̶m̶s̶… I mean, learning opportunities. Let's say, LAMP, LDAP & mail server (both SMTP & IMAP).
Depending on how curious you are you'll probably end up debugging kernel at some point.

@emsenn Formal language seem o be a bit more broad term. While it certainly covers Computer languages (both programming and markup), it covers things like math notation, and natural languages (e.g. Formalized subset of English, invented languages such as Klingon or Esperanto, etc.).
I’ll just live it here.
@lrz You shouldn't. It does feel like magic. =)
@lrz You don't really navigate around. It's all one page that fakes navigation. It replaces parts of it when you click links and manipulates address bar to not break linking.
Many web apps do this. GMail. Facebook. Twitter. Even GitHub in a simplest form.
Mastodon does too. Click on different toots and watch the address bar.

Hello #accessibility people!
Are there any hints you would give users on here to make posts more accessible?
I've heard these quite often:
-Add a text description on your images, it won't affect the character limit on your main post.
-Don't use rapidly blinking gifs on your profile, they are animated by default on public profiles.
@cwebber Ues. For a while.

@tindall I don't have an answer to the "how" question.
I just wanted to mention Matrix: a modern communication protocol with a client very similar to Slack/Discord. It's open in a proper way and may be apealling to developers.
Then there's XMPP. A mature protocol with varying support of extensions in clients. The protocol includes all sorts of modern bells and whistles: OMEMO, MIX, TOTP and lots more.
So it's not like there's nothing to replace IRC.
