@kensanata thanks for your tips on iosevka font and brutalist theme for emacs. They are both great!

Currently decrypting oscean's code. It's so addictive, lightweight and cryptic : github.com/XXIIVV/oscean/tree/ I got it working! thanks @neauoire for such an inspiration 🙏

Friend: What’s your new address? I can come pick you up
Me: Thx, but I don’t want my address to end up on #facebook
Friend: What? I’m not giving it to FB. WTH?!
Me: Hum, you’ll probably add it to my contact on your phone. You gave Messenger and Whatsapp access to your contacts. So yeah if I give you my address there’s a good chance it’ll end up in a FB’s database.

Why is it so hard to protect one’s data these days? Is there a way for me to have ppl over without leaking my address?

Just while i was motivated and doing some progress with my blog, my pc died. why ?? 😫

Somewhere in Grand Rapids, Michigan, there is an ancient Commodore Amiga that is hard at work. For over a quarter century it has been controlling the heat and air conditioning at 19 different schools and running nonstop. It's still kicking, for now anyway.


Iphones. Glorious walled garden devices that won't even let you browse your own files on the device, let along use something like Syncthing or even - I think - ssh based apps.

The first thing an iOS device does when you power it up is to call back home to Apple. They never have been private people are finally waking up.

Androids that cost half as much have better specs and can be wiped for complete privacy and be used for anything with combination of smart apps iphone users can't dream about.

Exhaustively reviewing my public tiddlers for HTML export in my new attempt. Maybe it goes well?

devs of bloated software should have to make a pilgrimage to bangladesh and inhale the fumes of the e-waste burn pits to understand the carbon footprint of their bloaty software causing people to buy new computers.

Dusting off my blog after half a year. What a loser

@alcinnz The copyright cabal going after Internet Archive. Despicable. Absolutely shameful. Libraries should be temples, whether online or off. They should be the centrepiece and pride of our species. Their doors should swing wide open for all comers, both writers and readers. Any society which undercuts the Library has lost the aegis of Heaven.

"I use Linux as my operating system," I stated proudly to the unkempt, bearded man. He swiveled around in his desk chair with a devilish gleam in his eyes, ready to mansplain with extreme precision. "Actually," he said with a grin, "Linux is just the kernel. You use GNU+Linux!" I don't miss a beat and reply with a smirk: "I use Abyss, a distro that doesn't include the GNU coreutils, or any other GNU code. It's Linux, but not GNU+Linux."

The smile quickly drops from the man's face. His body began convulsing, he foamed at the mouth, and he dropped to the floor with a sickly thud. As he writhed around he screamed, "I-IT WAS COMPILED WITH GCC! THAT MEANS IT'S STILL GNU!" In a cool fashion, I replied "Abyss uses the LLVM compiler suite, GCC uninvolved."

With a sickly wheeze, the last of the man's life was ejected from his body. He lied on the floor, cold and limp. I've womansplained him to death.

Just arrived at elementaryOS. Great first impressions! 🤩

Gadgetbridge saved my fitband! So I wrote a post about it to thank those guys! :angery: sivridis.com/posts/gadgetbridg
