Time spent debugging LibreOffice build failures on musl libc + gcc 10:
Almost 4 hours before giving up
Time spent rewriting the document in LaTex:
@sir About a year ago I discover I can write Markdown and have pandoc convert it to pdf, docx, or whatever and I haven't looked back ever since.
@roobre I would prefer that my documents look nice
@sir You mean the latex output or the source? I personally find MD source quite easy to read in plain text.
@roobre the output, of course
@sir Oh, what weird latex magic do you speak that pandoc doesn't get?
@roobre latex is infinity times more expressive than markdown, regardless of what pandoc can or cannot do
@sir Personally I find it more expensive to write tho, but it is still very fine for more complex stuff :)
@portpupper I like the syntax of markdown better. I still use textile for poetry though because it preserves line breaks in the output.
@sir i write all my docs using groff, LaTeX is cool too but sometimes its syntax annoys me
@sir LibreOffice is really one of the most annoying mainstream open source programs
