Going to just leave this here, because frankly, everyone deserves to see this lovely bike.

Anyone need a part time Vala/Python/Java/etc. desktop, web developer? Or AI/vision/robotics research assistant? I'm currently looking for some work to pay the rent while I finish off my PhD.

My CV is here: mjog.vee.net/curriculum-vitae/

Boosts appreciated!

So this is what I have been working on for the last few years: hri.edu.au/ – the Facility itself, not just the web site. :)

Need an experiment space for HRI research? We have one of the largest and most highly instrumented in the world, and it's available for you to use.

How many upvotes will it take for the focus stealing prevention stuff in mutter/gnome-shell to be removed/made configurable? Asking for a friend.

Here's the thing though. If some dev not talking to or refusing to deal with your consistent toxicity and dog piling efforts is enough to 'radicalize' you, you were a racist piece of shit before all of that.

As much as these cats froth at the mouth about virtue signaling, they engage in it quite a bit.

If you don't like the software, just don't use it. Anything beyond that is some personal grudge shit that refuse to let go of.

There's a certain schadenfreude in the way that rabid firewallers who refused to open any ports but 80 and 443 under the daft assumption that forcing every communication in the world to encapsulate itself in the same protocol would somehow increase security have created the world in which their IP-Port based model of security is completely useless.

So... @tbernard and I (mostly Tobias, really) did a thing couple weeks ago for LAS cause we found the conference name to be orthogonal to its goals.

Here's a blog post version of it.

"There is no “Linux” Platform"

Special shootout to @elementary for being the inspiration and case study for it and doing a kickass job all over the place.

"For some, open source is about making software less buggy and more robust by widening the pool of possible contributors. For others, it’s about giving users—at least the more technically skilled ones—more control over the software they use. For the most cynical, it’s a way to dupe people into working for free."

politics, swearing 

PCs are well-supported dumpster fires. Macs are poorly supported ivory towers. ARM boards will only boot if you get an image from a sketchy github repo in a dark alley, and then your SD card dies.

Pick as many as you want, sucker.

Decisions decisions

What’s an alternative to DNS that allows for self-moderation and openly accessible? The closest thing would be some sort of pet-name registry that ISPs and states could hold and people could opt to subscribe to. A bit similar to the Gossip protocol that Secure Scuttlebutt uses.

flatpak-builder updates gnome-terminal's window title with the current module being built and current build stage. Nice! 😎

Black Friday is the day once a year where we wear black armbands to remind us of all the people who have been harmed or outright killed by capitalism. ✊🏴

Welcome to the annual Buy Nothing Friday!

Remember, by buying nothing today, you can flip the bird at the capitalists who control your Government, keep you struggling for basic necessities, kill people so they can sell you more cheap shit you don't need, and are destroying the planet's environment.
