A couple things I saw and thought "Mastodon will love this":

- Alias, a 3D-printed "parasite" that sits on top of your Amazon Echo or Google Home, feeding white noise into its mic until you say the wake word:

- The adminbook, a wonderfully ugly design for the ideal sysadmin notebook:

FridaysForFuture hat gerade ein akutes Messengingproblem, das aber auch absehbar war. In Deutschland organisieren sie sich über WhatsApp.
Jetzt wollen sie einen anderen Messenger, der am besten verschlüsselt ist und vor allem große Gruppen moderierbar macht.
Ich wurde gefragt, ob ich da eine Lösung anbieten kann und bitte um Ideen und Denkanstöße, was ich denen erzählen soll und vor allem welcher Messenger es nun werden soll.

Es wär super, wenn $Leute mir helfen würden 🙏

So I'm working on this project for a few months and I build it all around that SVG parsing library and now they tell me that it cannot parse any SVG containing 'ü'. Seriously???

In der letzten Zeit schwappten immer wieder Artikel zum Thema trans und vor allem zu trans Jugendlichen durch die Medienlandschaft. Spiegel, Zeit, etc.

Viele dieser Artikel beziehen sich auf Dr. Korte (eigentlich immer) und eigentlich immer geht es ROGD.

I just watched a woman upgrade her sewing machine with a toilet repair kit. Techbros think they're hot shit hackers but they ain't got shit on seamstresses.

"i use linux as my operating system," i state proudly to the unkempt, bearded man. he swivels around in his desk chair with a devilish gleam in his eyes, ready to mansplain with extreme precision.
"actually," he says 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 alpine, a distro that doesn't include the GNU coreutils, or any other GNU code. it's linux, but it's not GNU+linux."

the smile quickly drops from the man's face. his body begins convulsing and he foams at the mouth as he drop to the floor with a sickly thud. as he writhes around he screams "I-IT WAS COMPILED WITH GCC! THAT MEANS IT'S STILL GNU!"
coolly, i reply "if windows was compiled with gcc, would that make it GNU?" i interrupt his response with "and work is being made on the kernel to make it more compiler-agnostic. even if you were correct, you won't be for long."

with a sickly wheeze, the last of the man's life is ejected from his body. he lies on the floor, cold and limp. i've womansplained him to death.

aha...die Management-Studenten haben jetzt die "Makerbewegung" entdeckt und hätten gerne Leute die ihre Umfrage ausfüllen.
Kann ich schon machen.

Important addition: I succeesfully recovered my whole machine from several times, so I wouldn't question it's basic ability as a backup tool.

I'm in the third day of trying to extract a single config file from my and no end in sight. Everytime I start borg extract it runs for several hours and eventually I forget about it and close my laptop and it terminates. Maybe I should switch to a backup solution with better properties regarding this use case.

Man I just want to know how I configured the colors in my mail user agent last week -.-

"Zum Dreikönigstag haben etwa 40 junge Menschen den Brauch der Sternsinger gekapert und sind vor das Wohnhaus des AfD-Bundesvorsitzenden Alexander Gauland gezogen, um Arbeiter- und Partisanenlieder zu singen."

There is so much dick in my timeline lately. Interesting development!
