“Nice climate change sign!”

“What’s climate change?” she says, pulling an AK-47 out from under her coat

@_ eugen because they'll pay him a ton of money for what will be repackaged Mastodon and kaniini because I feel she's the most likely person who would punch a nazi in the face while ignoring consequences and this would get her close enough to jack

@feld I vote stars. When I was on FB, before they had emoji reactions, the only thing you had where likes. I often saw when people had bad news that people felt conflicted because a like would mean they liked what happened to the person, yet they wanted to show support somehow. The result was a lot of awkward replies of people who simply didn't have a way to express themselves. A star is less powerful in that regard, but I think that's the strength of it. It's more of a sign of recognition where the meaning can remain open. IMO, if you want likes, you need to add more options then just a like.

as i've said before, we are in an interesting time, where certain forces (short sellers, mostly) are hiring engineers and having them go through CPU erratum documentation to see if these erratum are exploitable. x86, especially, is likely to have a bad time in the coming years.

The IT-Department of the city of #Vienna (#Austria) really seem to hate the free and open internet. They censor #Tor.

Frankly I think there's not excuse for this sort of #Censorship. If you're afraid your websites #security level is not good enough for Tor, it's not good enough for being on the Web in the first place.

this is really interesting - the concept of having giant, heavy midi controllers came to mind. huge levers that are hard to turn, etc. It really does make a difference for musicality when you put your body into music

"Install 9front" is the superior version of "install gentoo"

Developer-driven software distribution is a bad idea, which is why I dislike things like Flatpak.

Having distro maintainers involved in the process and installing your software from a free software distribution like Debian or FreeBSD is a much better distribution of power. The packages can be tuned to suit their environment without the developer having to repackage it for every distro, and the distro maintainers can keep out anti-features like telemetry and advertising.

The middleman may seem annoying to developers, but embrace the model and it'll work for you. Landing packages in your favorite distro isn't actually that hard, and the rest of the distros will follow. If you're an end-user who wants to see some software available for your distro, look into packaging and volunteer - it's easy.
