Writing programmes to generate my own charts and table for stars and planets
I have recently been on an #astronomy bent.
I should improve my #vim set up to get better tab completion. I've just use the built in Ctrl-P/N since forever, but that's dumb & only looks at current files.
What's the better way?
I've heard it compared to dogs. Where dogs can only “hear” the tone, and not what you actually say (cause, d'uh they're dogs and don't understand human language).
I wonder if there's a term for that
@polychrome On top of this I think Google's undermining of RSS _did_ harm RSS as a technical standard also, because it drastically reduced the fucks that publishers had to give about their feeds. Many don't have what might otherwise be an essential feed by now. Many others have bad feeds with just links and article headers. Many have malformed or broken feeds: I used to subscribe one where all had the same date, which confused readers a lot.
Google might not have killed RSS, but.
@polychrome When people say "Google Killed RSS" I always understood that to mean:
"Google used their powers of bulletproof antitrust to float a free product that kelped kill a vibrant and growing industry of RSS based services and applications, leaving only themselves and the (generally not mainstream) FLOSS community, then killed their own RSS reader just in time for social media to replace RSS in the public consciousness, relegating RSS to nerds and discussions about RSS"
Google didn't kill RSS.
They killed a popular *web client* for RSS.
The protocol is very much alive and quietly supported by many sources.
If anything the one action that really did bring harm to #RSS is Google's refusal to add RSS button support to Chrome by default and Mozilla removing it from Firefox.
Then again, I would like to try the kitty terminal...
You just know Canonical would force their snap thing on everyone...
