A Polish fascist has just murdered the pro-refugee, pro-LGBT mayor of Gdansk. Jo Cox, Heather Hayer and now Pawel Adamowicz are just the most prominent names on a growing list of the victims of resurgent fascism. theguardian.com/global/video/2

microsoft made windows 10, split it into two versions -- a watered down one called home and a regular one called pro -- and when you buy a $2000 laptop it comes with w10 home so you have to fucking pay $100 for access to bitlocker and group policy editor like some kind of EA microtransaction bullshit except it's not a video game it's your fucking operating system and it costs ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS

microsoft had to put in extra work to create the limited home version. when you buy windows you are financing a company that spent time and effort to actively fuck you and every other user over

It still bothers me that I don't see a clear use case for how all those #ActivityPub services can work together.
I see how the publication side is going to work: You pick the service suitable for our content (microblogging, video, pictures, long text, targeted to specific groups etc.).

More reasons people say they give to the FSF: "I saw a callout to donate as I was looking up how to do something in Emacs, and felt that since I use #GNU software almost *constantly* I should at some point give back." https://u.fsf.org/15q

I'm considering trying to implement Gitea support for creating new (and responding to) issues for users that haven't logged in.

I don't use it in an enterprisey way, mostly for my own projects, but I'd prefer for people to dump bugs on my host rather than my github mirror.

I'm wondering if that ought to be a separate app to increase the likelihood of not having to maintain my own patch for eternity... Would others be interested in such a feature?

filled paths made from bezier curves "extruded" from normals evenly spaced along the curve, laid out on the page with normally-distributed starts, ends, and control points, playing around with width of the extruded shape along the curve and stddev of gaussian noise added to the width

I get the retro appeal to web 1.0 aesthetics as a reaction to the awful experiences of screaming hell panopticon social media and terrible web design. But there's something to be said for remembering that "Rate My Poop is owned by Rotten" was a relevant statement, that there was some Blood Meridian wild west shit going on back then. Bring web rings and decentralization back, but also don't swiss cheese the brains of young'uns in the same way some of us spent years getting over.

"European environment ministers have a series of proposals forcing manufacturers to make goods that last longer and are easier to mend. (...)
Manufacturers say the proposed rules on repairability are too strict and will stifle innovation."

1. They've been saying the same thing since the child labour laws, yet somehow we all have smartphones in our pockets
2. Fuck innovation, give us reliable, modular, open source stuff that actually solves our problems

The most recent atmospheric CO2 reading is over 410 parts per million.

The last time humans experienced 410 ppm was... never. Never. Humans hadn't evolved yet.
