I’ve also got a bunch of updates I’ll be making to Watson – the best-practices elementary OS application template – based on my experiences in building Comet as a Vala app for elementary OS.

And once Comet has been accepted on AppCenter and I’ve added anything else I’ve learned to it (and hopefully got some feedback from the community), it should be ready for general use.

Why it's important to use a real email address for your sourcehut account: I just emailed a dozen people to tell them that their CI builds are going to break with the incoming deprecation of a build image. One of their emails bounced, and they're in for a nasty surprise when their shit starts breaking next week
Apple steals over eighty hours of work per retail employee per year by making them stay after they have clocked out to be searched before they go home.
