I thought there was not a single human in the universe that thought that the 'old guard forums' were better than Discourse. But @tuxman proved me wrong. Ok, no need to go any further on my side :). I'll go back under my rock where I have been the last 5 years :) :). I do think the content of DC is also somewhat 'stuck in time'. I think the time when finding cool desktop apps (on windows) was a thing. There were discounts, great reviews, interesting people thinking about usability... They are probably still here, but the paradigm is just not interesting to me at all. Not only because I'm on linux: web apps kinda made desktop apps redundant in all but a few use cases IMHO.

General Software Discussion / Modern forum software: Discourse
« on: June 26, 2017, 04:34 AM »
Hi guys,

This is a 'back from the death' post after many years innactive. Looks like the internet has moved on and there's now far more modern forum software. I like Discourse, but there must be others... The thing is that this community feels like a 90's forum and this may be slowing its growth. I'm talking as a single person here, YMMV, but... DC lost me years ago, I wonder how much the software had anything to do with it.

I have lots of mechanical keyboards. My favorite switch is now Matias alps, but it used to be cherry blacks.

General Software Discussion / Firemin: reduce FF memory usage
« on: June 27, 2016, 12:28 AM »
Hi guys,

Have a look at Firemin. It claims to reduce FF memory usage. From reading here, I know all these memory optimizers don't really work, but in this case it definitely stops a small machine I have from swapping to an HDD, so it definitely saves the bacon.


General Software Discussion / Re: So, what pdf reader app is your fav?

Try okular. Comes with KDE for windows. It has two key features:
  • It has an overview mode, where you can see 3 pages at once on a big monitor
  • It removes the white borders around pages.
Anyone has a reader than can provide this?
