If you're one of the full-blown introverts that called me a weirdo in this poll (or if you would have chosen that option), please try to explain your concept of "emotional needs" to me! Thanks!

Looking for software, GUI, ReplayGain + R128 :boost_ok: 

Hi,
I'm looking for a GUI tool that can calculate and save ReplayGain / R128 tags correctly for MP3, OGG, FLAC, and OPUS files.

Right now I'm using ExFalso, but it uses ReplayGain instead of R128 for OPUS files, which is incorrect and doesn't get applied by my music player (Audacious).

Any suggestions?

Hardware question. Please boost! 

I'm still looking for a free software analog telephone adapter (ATA).

I tried to find a Dragino DT01 because it seemed to fit the bill, but they're out of stock everywhere.

The MeshPotato "MP02 Phone" seems to be the same thing, basically.

Does anyone know of a similar device that's actually still available?

The celebration of "egging" and "milkshaking" as tools of antifascist action contributes yet again to the age-old normalization of speciesist exploitation.

I'm so tired of stuff like this.

In my book any kind of socialism that is not actually libertarian and thus disregards individuals is inherently unethical, especially explicit state socialism, which is by design authoritarian and centralist.
If someone's communal socialism is organized bottom-up and decentralized, i.e. based on the needs and decisions of the individuals concerned, then indeed it's not inherently unethical or unjust (but pretty much anarchist).
State socialism, however, is.

There's nothing anarchist about controlling others through value extraction.
"Anarchist" capitalists are just anti-state proponents of the "freedom" to exploit those who happen to find themselves on the disadvantaged side of a power imbalance.

As far as I am concerned, "anarcho"-capitalism and capitalist "libertarianism" is nothing but plutocratism.

The lack of revolutionary potential in most existing co-ops is one of the many reasons why cooperative/collective economic projects should already incorporate an inherently anarchist approach at the founding level, and options for long-term horizontal scalability via federation with politically & structurally compatible projects shouldn't be an afterthought.
Worker co-ops shouldn't be isolated. Instead, they should have the clear potential to be integral parts of a bottom-up needs-based economy.

Members of a police force are humans who let themselves be employed as executives of a state's monopoly on violence.

Pigs are one of the largest groups of victims of violent speciesist exploitation.

Please stop conflating the two and stop victimizing pigs even more by using them in your awful attempts at dehumanizing members of the police!

Pigs are not to blame.

Here are the full sources for the new LS1028A processor module for MNT Reform, designed by RBZ Embedded Logics (Madrid): source.mnt.re/reform/mnt-refor

The chip on this module has dual ARM Cortex-A72 processors and 8GB or 16GB DDR4 RAM while keeping the Vivante GC7000L GPU with open source drivers.

This makes MNT Reform an end-to-end open hardware laptop, from the processor module and motherboard to the input devices like keyboard and trackball.

this should not be news to anyone, but facebook works extremely closely with cops, feds, etc and you should never put your face on those types of platforms if you are also recorded criming

#MutualAid #TransCrowdFund

skimming a 1994 report put out by the us government on "community policing" (aka counterinsurgency) to get a sense for how cop apologists understand the relationship between police and the people they terrorize, perhaps to get some idea of how they are going to try to clamp down on this wave of unrest and anti-cop sentiment.

of course, i am reading this also to understand how police undermine their own goals and how they work to claw back leverage. some fun quotes so far:

"Without trust between police and citizens, effective policing is impossible."

"One observer of the urban scene characterized the deteriorating police-community relationship this way: For the urban poor the police are those who arrest you."

"Experience and research reveal that “community institutions are the first line of defense against disorder and crime” Thus, it is essential that the police work closely with all facets of the community to identify concerns and to find the most effective solutions."

asking for help with medical expenses 

Hi everyone. I hate do do this but we're all out of painkillers, I currently don't have any health insurance, and my chronic back pain doesn't seem to care much about that. I need strong stuff because my drug tolerance against all the usual painkillers available is so high that I'd get liver problems from the doses I'd have to take. Let me figure out how go get my hands on the medicine I need, but for now I'd be grateful for any help with covering the costs. I won't need much. Thank you. 🖤

medical expences, not having money, asking for donations 

My body is not exactly in cooperative mode, and I need someone who knows how bodies in my state need to be maintained to do some maintenance on it.

I've been postponing this because it's expensive. Postponing getting health care is not very healthy, so if anyone want's to chip in a bit I'll be eternally thankful.
My donation links are
