This is also a great example of what happens when a project has too many people. Sorry, but seeing this mission-critical bug 2 friggin years later without a proper fix is frankly unacceptable.

Seeing my issue still open on LMMS after almost 2 years makes me sad. Who knows if they'll ever engineer a solution that will satisfy everyone:
For reference, here was my one line(!) PR that completely fixed the issue (was rejected):
It's a tricky thing, because I very much treasure backwards compatibility when it comes to music software. However, in this situation, it is worth breaking. This mistake gives unintended behavior for a very common operation found in DAWs. This bug will ripple through every present and future effect in LMMS. It compromises the sound of every project before it even has a chance to begin.
This was one of the major tipping points for me that lead to me leaving. I just couldn't justify putting in the time + energy for a sketchy audio engine that was dead on arrival, when I could be utilizing that time on building a better one.
Dev Rant, Android, "Customers" Show more
For the past 5 years, every few years, I get emails asking about my Android app Ethersurface. Some of them are nice, but most of them are short unhelpful emails like this one.
Firstly, this is a free app. No ads. I make no money or revenue at all from this. Where is my motivation to implement features?
Secondly, I can't build this app anymore. Couldn't update this even if I wanted to. Android Ecosystem is very fickle. I blinked and suddenly everything was different.
I'm trying to build a swipe-able menu (from scratch), so briefly examined some swipe-able menus and UIs. I never really realized how much love and detail they put into these things. Velocity tracking makes things feel so natural. I borrowed an iOS device, and I learned that their swipe has recoil if the swipe is fast enough. Amazing.

Do you know the sound a deer makes while it is getting slowly eaten alive by a bear? Welp. I do now. Thanks, Reddit.
@rra turns out the flashlight randomly turning on is a feature, not a bug. Through pure luck, I found the "touchscreen gestures" page, which allows you to run commands while your phone is locked. I was unknowingly drawing a "V" while the phone was locked to turn on the light.
Netflix, Product Placement Show more
San Clarita Diet is being more pushy this season with the product placement. It was just so awkward seeing them try to work in the skittles bit into the scene.
I also recall that the the Mars company also did a similar shit job in Orange is the New Black.
I feel bad for the writers. It's clear that they had to comply with higher-up people with terrible ideas.

Fighting a boss, probably died at least a dozen times without doing any damage. This time, things are different. I'm making the dodges and laying hits. I get struck a few times. Suddenly I'm down to my last HP with no estus flasks. One more hit and I'm down. I don't want to die without a fight, so I start lobbing fireballs at thing. And you know what? Fkin nailed it.
Dark Souls. Hell of a game.

About to get on a plane for a weekend away. Super short and easy trip, but mild anxiety nevertheless. Going out anywhere is tough for me these days. I've grown too comfortable with my isolation.
Hacked some preliminary JACK support into the fasttracker 2 clone. I have not tested it much, but it seems to play my reference file okay on OSX. Have yet to test it on my Linux device, or do much else with it:
