I noticed that the toot that I retooted mentioning this isn't showing up for me on my profile page so in case anyone missed it:
tl;dr the gmail thing is likely not an issue for third party clients, only ones that involve accessing data related to a google account through a third party server. Which, most clients do not do or need to do.

I should note: I'm trying to confirm the gmail news still with some developers for evolution, and I'll likely delete the thread I posted if it ends up being Google's not imposing this on open source projects or something like that (I'm hoping this is the case since they've been helpful with gnome-online-accounts in the past). It's worth noting the blog post I linked to is from a closed source email client (despite the RT saying otherwise). Perhaps they'll work with FOSS folks

if I don't see nvidia fucking live up to their promises with the pmu firmware they mentioned publically, I see genuinely no reasons to see this as anything but a power grab. I'd love to assume otherwise, but nvidia has worked hard to setup this shitty of a reputation and quite frankly they will have to work real fucking hard to get rid of it.

No one knew about this! I didn't fucking know about this! this is so fucking bullshit. like yes, we can take this code and use it for nouveau. but there's now two fucking god damn drivers out there. and guess which one people are going to go with? it's not the mainline driver. that's for fucking sure.

Hey, nvidia: fuck you?
Out of all of the many, many, many things we have been asking from you this was not one of them. we don't need nother fucking amdgpu, we needed fucking information on how to fucking fix nouveau up instead of having to compete with your god damn out of tree driver
seriously what the actual fuck

OMG I JUST WATCHED THE VIC FONTAINE EPISODE OF DS9
omgomgomgomgomg it's so cute wtf I did NOT expect that ending

also if anyone saw the deleted thread I made about shareholders and wondered what it was about? it was entirely related to shit like this, e.g. companies leaving a bunch of shit code upstream for everyone else to clean up because they care more about getting their own hardware working asap without literally any regard to upstream's needs or time

Big job related annoyances 

I genuinely would have rejected those patches a million more times if I didn't know that I was clearly making next to no progress getting them to contribute more then like 20 lines to the drm helpers, and wasn't just exhausted from having to constantly reiterate the exact same changes that I asked for.
like, I honestly just gave up even trying to review the amd parts of that series - which is where this VC payload table change happened!

why did it go through so many revisions, perhaps legitimate changes?
no not really they just kept forgetting to format things properly and didn't fix them the multiple times I pointed it out to them, in addiiton to the fact that despite me pushing very much to be like "hey let's figure out how to get these in the helpers yeah?" genuinely no one else fucking cared WHICH WAS EXHAUSTING

Big job related annoyances 

just found that their MST implementation increases/decreases payloads. Which is FINE, except that the fucking payload management code we have in the helpers doesn't handle this! And the only reason this got into amdgpu in the first place was because it was on the DP MST DSC series for amdgpu, which I explicitly remember because it was genuinely fucking exhausting and consisted of more then like 9 fucking patch revisions

holy fucking shit I am so, so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so tired of amdgpu pretending they are the only driver in existence and that they can just totally ignore all of the DRM shared code when it doesn't do exactly what they want because it's easier to just hack some shit together in amdgpu and forget about it
seriously
you know who has to deal with that later down the line AMD?
(hint: it's literally fucking me)

If you tell someone to "go cry about it" I assume that is because you are holding back your own tears lmao

Ideal war outcome: Ukraine and Russia solve their issues diplomatically. As part of the peace agreement, Russia is dissolved - leading to the creation of Big Ukraine

I look forward to the fucking day that we look at republicans the same fucking way we do at nazis when they come up in textbooks, I will enjoy seeing every single conservative's name dragged into the fucking dirt.

If you're a conservative? fuck you. fuck your freedom of speech, not that you know what that even means. fuck your religion. fuck you. i hope someday we get to have fucking sessions in government where we get to fuck around and just ban every single fucking personal aspect of your lives.

if the left ever starts having the upper hand, they're gone. they're completely gone. i don't think a single fucking person at this point would stop at fucking anything less then fucking destroying this god damn party and every single fucking person in it, and blowing fucking conservative culture to bits and beyond
