Guys. What the fuck now again? This is the craziest thing I have heard in YEARS!

The sole reason why I, and many others, use Firefox, are precisely these proper UI extensions that XUL allows.

I don’t understand. Please stop, Mozilla.

Opera turned into a bad Chrome clone some years ago. Look at it now. There’s nothing left.

I upgraded from Fedora 20 to Fedora 22…

…and surprise, surprise! Firefox is what we’re going to have problems with.

I have no idea how this happens and it definitely is annoying.

Otherwise, upgrading using FedUp from 20 to 21 and from 21 to 22 only involved removing some conflicting packages prior to the upgrade and installing them again later.

Somehow it re-enabled the display manager that I don’t use though; I’ll have to disable it again later. And trying to install VirtualBox results in some kind of a conflict:

Error: nothing provides kernel-uname-r = 4.0.8-300.fc22.x86_64 needed by kmod-VirtualBox-4.0.8-300.fc22.x86_64-4.3.30-1.fc22.x86_64

Here’s a thing I posted on Youtube.

Also, goddamnit Kdenlive, why do you have to crash all the time!? Well at least the restore-from-crash feature mostly works…

Some fun with plywood. Not sure if I fully like the end result, but it for sure is quite funky which was one of the goals.

In this video I extend the case to fit the power supply and the control/midi board, and probably a small mixer in the future. The analog sound generation boards will be external to this.

It’s not really finished at the end of this video as since then I added a carrying handle, and it doesn’t have the final knob panel and neither some other details.

Aaand streaming today as well.

Come shout at me in the stream chat if you think this is too spammy. 8)
