Does anyone here wanna help me fix a UI quirk in @nextcloud that
prevent my disabled friend Maurice from using Talk as a replacement for Skype?
As a starting point could someone help me figure out how to make the sidebar open up by default by editing php/js/css files on my Nextcloud instance? I have scanned the code for a while but my web-dev skills are lagging behind the curve really really badly these days...

But on a positive note, I then stumbled across a video of one my then coworkers dancing Flamenco! I never got a chance to see them dance before. So that was cool.
(Life just keeps truckin'. That's enough time lookin' back today.)

I was reminded by a toot about a place I used to work for, and on a lark I did a youtube search since I vaguely remembered we had some videos. And most of what came up were videos showcasing all the equipment that was up for auction after they went out of business (I had left just prior to that happening). There was one showing all the cubes in the empty office space, and another showing all the optical labs! I can't believe I got a lump in my throat watching them. :(

I know the source is bad, but would like to know if anyone has input on the subject. Senior Google exec speaks out -- http://bit.ly/2LM0Ocj “Are we going to just let the biggest tech companies decide who wins every election from now on?”
Here's the talk I presented this week at the 2019.2 meeting of the Phoenix Computer Engineering Club: https://gitlab.com/phx-comp-eng/latches-and-flip-flops
New Linux machine freshly installed for my wife to try, and it only took me hours of my life. This is much less time than in the past, and I honestly think this was faster than a typical Windows computer setup. Everything came straight outta the package repos! Now to see if she'll actually like it... It's either this or Windows 10 for her, so... Hoping for the best.
I'm trying the GNOME Software method of updating things on Fedora (as opposed to dnf all the things like I usually do), and I'm not really enjoying the experience of the forced downtime during the reboot stage. But I suppose the process is no worse than all the other horrible computer systems people have to use, and it's easier to explain to somebody whose first language is not computer.
(I'm pretty sure my first language is now computer, much to my chagrin.)
Williams Joust, one of a pair of two-player pinballs we've got here (the other being "Challenger," a 2-player Gottlieb where the playfield alternately tilts towards one player and then the other). Multiplayer pinball has always been a game of hanging around and waiting, here Williams tried to do something about that.
They failed hard but everyone still wants to play this game, because it's rare and super-weird. It's crying out for some software fixes, mind.
Does anyone have experience setting up VoIP using a SIP trunk provider and a software PBX like Asterisk for your home phone? I'm considering doing this instead of just doing VoIP through whatever ISP I coose (most likely AT&T) but I want to hear from people who have done it. I have 3 questions about it:
1. How difficult was it to set up?
2. What did you learn from doing so?
3. Do you think it was worth it and if so, why?
