What's wrong with SaaS companies who keep on killing sessions after ridiculous amounts like ~1h?

At least keep the state of whatever I was last doing instead of just throwing away all my work.

Behemoth's exclusive online concert last year is now available for free on Arte (arte.tv/de/videos/108580-001-A) and the Arte Youtube channel (youtu.be/VIeO4GGbxIs).

It's probably way too late to challenge public perception of Ukraine's Zelensky but this fucker deseverves none of the praise he's getting.

He's just another neoliberal puppet of oligarchs and imperialists. Apart from reducing workers rights and enabling privatization he offered a friendly face while Ukraine got sacked by western imperialist interests.

He used the war to get rid of basically all opposition (left & right) and started jailing several journalists way before the war even started.

He's just another dictator looking to loot the Ukraine for his oligarch friends. Don't buy the current narrative they're selling, it's just theater.

being a community at the mercy of some information oligopoly that owns the means of operation of some of our basic functions is not unique to science, maybe that could be a source of solidarity.

I mean seriously, what's our countdown clock on years until extremely angry actual fascists succeed in getting 100% control of the Amazon and Microsoft corporate networks, either via the boardroom or via the US Presidency?


And then what, they're just going to sit there and not weaponise the information equivalent of a nuclear weapon? They're going to just go "man we could really get our Dark MAGA pogrom on, but, gentlemen don't read each other's hypervisors"

We really think that?

Der Druck wirkt: Innenministerin Faeser teilt die Kritik an der #Chatkontrolle.
Jetzt nicht nachlassen: das bislang beispiellose Überwachungspaket der EU-Kommission muss klipp und klar zurückgewiesen werden!

TIL: Floorgasm

I haven't listened to Nightwish in 17-18 years and I had no idea they switched vocalists again. Holy shit, what a unique talent.

What's some underground/indie music you absolutely don't want to live without, no matter the genre? Consider everything that isn't under contract at a major label or one of their subsidiaries. If it doesn't have too much of a positive vibe, that's a plus.

OR: Depression is constant war, and it always feels as though the defense is the one on the brink of losing everything. It’s war against self-doubt. It’s war against those intrusive thoughts that won’t just fuck off already. It’s war to the point of questioning one’s very sanity. Confidence in reality becomes shattered as every action or statement becomes suspect, and a loss of any modicum of belief in the self turns to paranoia.

I wish recruiters would stop trying to reach me via phone.

Stop it, it's not going to happen.

I'm thankful for a lot of people who listened to a lot of stupid ramblings of mine instead of telling me to fuck off. I've grown a lot thanks to the patience of friends and I don't want to know where I could've ended up if everyone had turned their backs on me and alienated me due to some edgy ignorant opinions I had.

Not every opinion is based on research, careful consideration or experience and most people (including me and you) are often lazy or even stupid. We tend to form opinions on a whim so make it easy for everyone to change their mind.

Don't alienate people who don't 100% agree with you on important topics.

I'm a white cis-het dude and I support the feminist struggle even if I don't agree with all strains of feminism.

I'm really annoyed by these casual "if you're a leftist who isn't also in support of X you basically suck" remarks. What's the goal here? Further divide the already fractured left?

Congratulations, it's working.

If these companies really were as culturally leftist as the Right implies, we wouldn't see as much sexual harrassment, abuse of power dynamics and union busting.
