Sama vika kuin viime syksynä: valot eivät vaihtuneet jalankulkijoille vihreiksi vaikka tilauspurnukan lamppu syttyikin napista.

I’d argue that the change introduced by the above fix is a regression

Urgh, I’d argue that changing this back *is* a regression. The merged menu item has been the default since (at least) 16.04, and now the cognitive load of opening a new tab has suddenly increased: instead of ”new terminal” I now again have to pick the one I want (which is always tabs for me) from two options each time, instead of just the one.

There’s a sort of a reverse Thatcher effect also

There’s a sort of a reverse Thatcher effect also: have your friend lie down, with the lower part of their face (everything below the eyes) obscured with a piece of paper or something. You then make eye contact with them from above their head so that their face is upside down in your field of view. After a while, your brains starts to think you are face to face with someone without a nose or a mouth, but with a bushy beard (assuming they have hair).

(Discovered this with friends back when we were kids, don’t know if has a designated name.)

Monitor power-off causes title bar to reappear (or disappear)

25. toukokuuta 2018 klo 16.07
Sijainti: Vianhallintajärjestelmät: Github
Avainsanat: Firefox, Gnome

Background

I’m using the currently published version of No Title Bar from Gnome Extensions in Ubuntu 18.04 (gnome-shell version 3.28.1-0ubuntu2).

Steps to reproduce

  1. log in to desktop
  2. start Gnome terminal
  3. maximize the terminal window (so that the title bar merges with the activity bar)
  4. power the display off, then back on

What happens

The terminal window again has its own title bar.

What I expect to happen

For the terminal window title bar to remain merged with the activity bar.

Further info

Under some circumstances (the specifics of which I haven’t been able to narrow down), when the title bar comes back, it is entirely transparent, so that in place of a title bar you have a see-through hole. Here’s a screenshot, showing how part of Firefox’s UI is visible from behind the terminal window, through where the title bar would be.

Position of left-tiled windows not restored correctly when another left-tiled window present

18. toukokuuta 2018 klo 15.38
Sijainti: Vianhallintajärjestelmät: Gnome GitLab
Avainsanat: Firefox, Gnome, Launchpad, Nautilus

Background

I’m using Ubuntu 18.04 with Gnome Shell 3.28.1, and was forwarded here from Launchpad, see bug #1767806 there.

The issue

When another window is maximized or tiled to the left side of the screen, re-opening an application whose window was previously tiled to the left side does not restore that windows’ previous position. Instead such windows open at varying distances from the dock, untiled.

Expected behavior

Steps to reproduce (with a newly created user)

  1. open Firefox, drag the window to the left edge of the screen to tile it there (filling up the left half of horizontal screen space)
  2. close Firefox
  3. open Nautilus, make sure that the window floats (i.e. is unmaximized and not tiled to either side of screen)
  4. open Firefox

What happens

As expected, Firefox’s window is tiled to the left edge of screen, immediately to the right side of the dock: screenshot.

Unexpected behavior

Steps to reproduce (with a newly created user)

  1. open Firefox, drag the window to the left edge of the screen to tile it there (filling up the left half of horizontal screen space)
  2. close Firefox
  3. open Nautilus, maximize its window
  4. open Firefox

What happens

Firefox’s window opens slightly to the right off the right edge of the dock (with a gap between the dock and the window): screenshot.

What I expect to happen

I expect Firefox’s window to be tiled to the left edge of screen, immediately to the right side of the dock, just as it did following the first recipe above.

Further information

  • Either maximizing or tiling Nautilus’ window to the left edge of the screen (at step 3) triggers the issue. Tiling it to the right edge of the screen does not.
  • Using Gnome Terminal instead of Nautilus triggers the issue just as well and I suspect any other application will, though I’ve only systematically tested these two so far.
  • From battling with this in my daily use I also know that the distance of incorrectly restored windows from the dock varies: different applications open at different distances. The precise mechanics of this still elude me, though the distances do appear to be multiples of 25 pixels.

Yhtään niistä massiivisista naputeltavista en koskaan saanut toimimaan

Monta yritin, mutta yhtään niistä massiivisista naputeltavista en koskaan saanut toimimaan. Se nepan ohjekirjassa ollut C=-kuumailmapallosprite oli suurin saavutukseni, ja sekin vasta vuosien ja lukuisten ragequittien jälkeen.

I wonder if he could have already been groomed

The mention of Mark’s behavioral issues got me wondering if he could have already been groomed by the perpetrator prior to the disappearance, and his psychiatric problems were triggered by the stress. A prior link would also explain why he wouldn’t just run away or put up a fight when being abducted.
