I've added a donation link to the Ariane homepage. We're comfortable with what we have so don't donate if you can't afford to, but if you can and use Ariane frequently it'll help justify the amount of time I spend developing it: cash.app/%C2%A3oppenlab

Watched it, it's fantastic. Beautifully filmed, best performance I've seen from Riz Ahmed.

@mxmehl @alatiera I don't even feel comfortable using "free software" inside the FOSS bubble anymore because I don't want people to think I condone Stallman's or the FSF's behavior.

@oppen reminded me of Pat Martino's story,
“To our knowledge, this case study represents the first clinical observation of a patient who exhibited complete recovery from a profound amnesia and regained his previous virtuoso status.”

Cant wait to see this: theguardian.com/film/2021/apr/ Post-surgery your brain has to relearn what the world should sound like with the new hardware. Everything sounded awful for a week or two, detuned, like it'd been through a ring modulator. The way you hear the world is just a consensus your brain builds up over time. It sounds like there's some of that portrayed in the film.

Trying to swab a 3 year olds nose when they're terrified of the things is not a fun experience. A has a pretty persistent cough, but without a negative result she can't go to nursery on Monday. Both S and I are working Monday so....

Ariane 3 is progressing. All accessibility functionality from Ariane 2 is in place, plus more. Hopefully ready for an Alpha release in the next week or so.

> The main trick ZSF has up its sleeve to avoid hiring any managers or human resourcing people, is to have a flat organization structure. By hiring contributors who are self-directed and intrinsically motivated, compensating them well, and then giving them the freedom to work on what they choose, the need for managers is almost entirely eliminated.

I wonder why that works.....

This seems to work well enough, determine if a string is ascii art or not: pl.kotl.in/qLNeuGbKS

New version of Ariane needed a new icon as it runs side by side with the old version during dev. I'll live with it for a while...

I can't think of legitimate code syntax where there'd be say 5 consecutive identical non-whitespace characters. It might be that simple.
