TIL: While using !important on CSS for a team project is not healthy, using `:not()` on CSS is toxic.

:not() creates infinite possibility of visual regressions, unless the infinity is contained by another rule that governs it.

Basically a double negative with :not():not() should be regarded as a sign that you are not welcomed to contributing to the project until you understand the overall style architecture.

I also work on making the Element's UI compatible with RTL languages like Arabic languages or Hebrew.

As I don't have the ability to write something in typescript, any help to actually implement the RTL layout is greatly appreciated!

Working on the UI implementation of Element, one of the Matrix clients, I noticed it **just works**, when it comes to CSS/SASS style rules.

It does not mean their quality is assured; the style rules are vulnerable to regressions, scattered everywhere. The rules are not well organized, not really understandable for those who read the code for the first time.

Since I am not a type of guy who just complains, here is the list of my PRs: github.com/matrix-org/matrix-r

What we learned is that AdGuard intercepts and rewrites the rules which are intended to block unsafe code. It's unclear whether the AdGuard devs intended for this effect, but there are much better, safer ways to block ads.

Ein #Hilfe Ruf an alle im #Lehrerzimmer

Unsere #schule hat Android Tablets bekommen und ich soll helfen, dafür die passenden Apps für SchülerInnen aber auch LehrerInnen zu finden.

Welche Apps sind bei euch im Sekundarschulbereich im Einsatz und wie gut haltet ihr die?

Bitte auch ReTrööt

One positive aspect of today: I was contacted by my child's doctor with the #signal app.

Good to see, that someone working in such a sensitive field is not using #WhatsApp and even without myself asking for it 👏

Would be great if more people in sensitive positions take this path for more self empower use of technology and switch to encrypted #FreeSoftware solutions like #Signal or decentralised ones like #Matrix, #XMPP OMEMO, #Briar, #Wire, ...

The editor of Rossiya 1, who protested live on-air with a "No War" banner, has not been heard from since. Her lawyer apparently is not able to contact her either.

She needs all the global attention she can get right now.

Based on the new law in Russia, for her action Marina can be charged with an offense that carries a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison.
