i love how everyone is cheering for Google for winning against oracle, because fuck oracle

and also asking to #DeleteChrome, because fuck Google

now, I'm not saying that every giant MegaCorp needs to be broken up and turned into worker coöperatives, and their billionaire leaders trebucheted into the sun with all their poisonous billions of blood money…

…because, in some cases it would make more sense to turn the MegaCorp into state owned public infrastructure.

I'm starting to feel like an asshole for ignoring spammers. Today's:
"I find it pleasurable to offer you my friendship"

After a hard drive failure and thanks to and on (with automatic backups every 15 mins), my work station (which doesn't have enough slots for drive redundancy) is back online after only running a few commands and moving a couple hundred GB across the network.

Today is one of those days in which I'd leave computers and… Idk, do beekeeping somewhere not densely populated.

There shouldn’t be any shame in writing small software. Everything doesn’t have to “scale”.

@evilham Thank you! If you or anyone else wants to contribute to the Catalan translation it is already started here:

Si algú pot, seria bastant interessant tenir traduccions correctes i completes de @cryptpad al català

Hi ha informació per començar aquí:
I, entre altres, hi ha el francès com a llengua amb bona traducció, així que l'anglès només és necessari pel document guia (recordem que els desenvolupadors estan a França).

Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare. - Audre Lorde

Just remembered that the wonderful people form @cryptpad have both great documentation and a wonderful software.
Will be setting up an instance on soon (it appears to work on my test bed!), and in the meantime, if you can afford it, send some moneyz their way.
