You can hire me!

Redesigned Kibou's static frontend a bit.
Still a lot to do (that repost looks horrible) but at least it's a less of an eyesore.

What’s the most popular Spanish language gender neutral pronoun? One of my direct reports is struggling in a linguistic sense to not misgender our nb teammates. Boosts appreciated, I’m competent but not a native speaker.

As a community college teacher, I never get tired of telling folks that the Black Panthers got started at a community college, Merritt College in Oakland. Of course, I often say this to remind community college colleagues that we need to be a bit more radical sometimes.

@charlag alternative theory:
state institutions decrease trust in state institutions

it sends chills down my spine that German authorities claim that "new extremists" are those who "decrease trust in the state institutions" and it's not only absolutely ridiculous (uhm, who doesn't?) but that's exactly how they close Navalny's FBK now.

Struggling with GTK4 intensifies.

GTK3's labels didn't consume click events if the mouse pointer wasn't over a link. Now labels seem to *never* bubble the events back to their parent widgets.

This is bad news for Tootle's UX since you now have to click outside the text (anything not in red) for the thread to expand in a new view.

Not sure how to fix this. Can't even tell if it's a regression or an intentional change :thounking: :thounking:
