What do you call the stuff on your laptop/desktop computer that has an icon, you click it, and it opens a window?
It's frustrating when young people are so conservative about techniques. The school system often pushes a certain kind of conformity and from the other side the job market often instills the idea that one needs to have "skills" that can be reduced to standardized techniques. For me that means that a lot of 19-year-olds think I'm a crazy heretic when I suggest that you can make a compelling image without using a particular product from the Adobe Corporation.
My gf asked me to install #Linux on her laptop (yay!). It's Lenovo with Intel/AMD switchable GPU. After horrible experience with NVIDIA's Optimus I was a bit anxious but everything works without any issues. To use #AMD card for given program you just set env variable. Now I'm 100% sure my next GPU will be from AMD
Quoting the classics: #NVIDA - fuck you

Youtube isn't interested in keeping videos forever. Or even for a long time. They'd rather not keep old videos at all.

"Information is power. But like all power, there are those who want to keep it for themselves,” Aaron wrote in his Guerrilla Open Access Manifesto.
“Forcing academics to pay money to read the work of their colleagues? Providing scientific articles to those at elite universities in the First World, but not to children in Global South? It’s outrageous & unacceptable.”
We remember him! 💗
Awww this Reddit post melted my icy heart :D
I made my boyfriend a Choose Your Own Adventure game to ask him to marry me. Probably a little ambitious for my first project...

This Hellsing parody is even better than anime itself (and it was pretty great) 🤣
Holy shit, the gitcoin founder told me "we're burning over $100K/mo to try to Grow[sic] and Sustain Open Source; we're just trying to keep the lights on with the 10% fee"
What the fuck? What are they spending $100K/mo on? That's like 20+ engineer's salaries, they could just straight up pay free software devs to work on free software and have a huge impact with a budget like that.
nude pics, pol
We shouldn't stop people from taking nude pics of themselves or their consenting partners.
We can't stop them from leaking.
I think *part* of the solution is stigmatizing making a big deal out of leaked nudes.
"Yeah, so our congresswoman has boobs. Is this a surprise? Have you not seen boobs before? Oh, I get it, nobody's willing to show you their boobs. Maybe you should be a better person."
It's not enough, no. But it's a part, and it's something we can all do.
