    1. Is it just me or is there something quirky with the rel="canonical" links for docdrop so that there isn't URL parity for the annotations on docdrop and the equivalent youtube videos. I thought it used to work, but when I visit the youtube version, there are no annotations on the page. I thought this used to work the way one would expect. What changed?

      I'm noticing that in this particular case there are two rel-canonical links when one might expect only one:

      <link rel="canonical" href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XgMh6iuFbT4"><br /> <link rel="canonical" href="http://docdrop.org/video/XgMh6iuFbT4/">

      Maybe the docdrop link should be a rel="alternate" instead?

    1. They wanna be to Linux what the Play Store is to Android, what the App Store is to iOS.But we don't do that around here. We use Flatpak round 'ere.

    1. It's possible that the URI gives it away, but this is a local copy of the resource at https://colbyrussell.com/meta/pages.app.htm.

      (~/projects/colbyrussell.com/main is the Git repository of all the Markdown sources and whatnot. It turns out that this file, though, is already in its file, publishable form and gets passed through much the same way e.g. a PNG or JPEG would be.)

    1. Considering Canonical has pulled resources from this project, the path for continued third-party development of Unity will not be easy. It is my hope that they are successful and can become another shining example of the power of forking, like the MATE project.
    1. We do know what our customers ask us for: powerful desktops and laptops that work with them in their creative endeavors. And we know that Canonical is no longer interested in catering to them. So we're going to try and step up.

    1. When Snap was introduced Canonical promised it would never replace APT. This promise was broken. Some APT packages in the Ubuntu repositories not only install snap as a dependency but also run snap commands as root without your knowledge or consent and connect your computer to the remote proprietary store operated by Canonical.
    1. It appears that Canonical is continuing it's vice grip of unliateral, maybe dictatorial control on the development of Snap to the benefit of Ubuntu, but to the detriment of groups like Linuxmint, and all other non-Ubuntu based Linux distributions - like CentOS/Redhat, Suse/openSuSe, Solus, Arch/Manjaro, PCLinuxOS, etc, that are pushing Flatpak as a truly cross-distro application solution that works equally well and non-problematic for all. .
    2. What's wrong here is Canonical trying to position itself as a powerhouse and ascertain control over Linux users.
    3. Canonical are really taking whole chapters out of the Microsoft 'How To' book. Do it our way or not at all.
    4. the Mint team remove all the bad stuff added by Canonical and add better desktop environments. You should try it, you never know, you might like it...
    5. If we're not careful, it could become the new 'systemd' problem It probably already is. I don't want to sound too Stallman, but this is the inevitable "company" influence you'll always have. Companies do have their objectives which they will pursue determinedly, since they are not philanthropic (no judgment, just observation). Systemd and Red Hat. Nvidia and their drivers. Google and Android. Apple and iOS. Manufacturers with MS only support. And Canonical also has a history there: the Amazon links, Unity, Mir, and now snap.

    1. RDFa is intended to solve the problem of marking up machine-readable data in HTML documents. RDFa provides a set of HTML attributes to augment visual data with machine-readable hints. Using RDFa, authors may turn their existing human-visible text and links into machine-readable data without repeating content.
    1. The next step is to link the canonical article to the AMP page. This is achieved by including a <link rel="amphtml"> tag to the <head> section of the canonical article.
    2. Canonical linking in regular HTML pages is a common technique for declaring which page should be considered the preferred page when multiple pages include the same content.
    1. Every AMP document needs to have a link referencing the "canonical" version of that document. We'll learn more about what canonical pages are and different approaches to canonical linking in the Making your page discoverable step of this tutorial.
    1. You don't have to name your AMP files as .amp.html. In fact, AMP files can have any extension you want. It's common to see publishers differentiating AMP pages from their canonical versions by using parameters in the url. For example: http://publisher.com/article.html?amp.

    1. With Radio3, the publicised links connect to the corresponding site, whereas when I bookmark using my site, it shares the link to my post rather than the original site. This has me rethinking why I bookmark and POSSE. Maybe I do not need to share links to the original source, especially when my bookmarks have secondary information.

      I wonder about this sometimes as well and have even contemplated crazy machinations for changing the canonical URL of my own posts to point to the originals.

      I'm still a long way from figuring this out completely.
