There are several tools to compress & optimize images without losing details (e.g. `optipng`/`pngcrush`/`zopflipng`/`pngquant` for png images).

Is there anything for videos?

I don't want something too complicated, but I have a 4MB .mp4 meme, and I wanna make it smaller.

What's everyone using as a PAGER on #unix now-a-days? `less(1)` is still the default on many systems I use, but I've sometimes uses `most(1)`.

Is there some fancy-pants modern #rust based pager or anything now?

i don't get paid enough to have to figure this out

Show thread

if one said “annual general meeting” that would (sorta) imply a meeting you could only have once a year (right?).

But if we just say ”general meeting”, then that covers other types of general meetings

Show thread

people are going to presume a nefarious motive, aren't they

Show thread

Never fear legal nerds, I have figured out how quickly the can hold a General Meeting.

§307 says 14 days are the fastest one could do it (right?)

Don't worry nothing nefarious, I'm just curious what we can put in a contract.

I joked about this to a fellow Board member. He pointed out that no-one ever told him it would be fun. 🤣

Join the Foundation Board, they said.
It'll be fun, they said.

You get to spend your Sundays reading the 1,200 page PDF of the UK Companies Act.

The mappers have correctly mapped (in ) where the ship is stuck in the canal.


(The rule of thumb is to not map things that will only be there for less than a month)

Show thread

, the ship that is blocking the Canal has already been mapped into

people seem to think it'll be there for a while. 🤣
