Apparently the new audacity owners are adding telemetry to it :/ This is....concerning. Especially because that PR discussion has _zero_ opposition to the feature being added

Familiar with :apple_inc: Swift, UIKit, and know your way around XCode? Want to help advance the state of #XMPP on #iOS? :xmpp: 📱 We're looking for developers to help bring our iOS app over the finish line! 🏁

This will be a paid short-term project producing FLOSS. DM or email if you're interested.

Not an iOS dev? That's okay, boosts appreciated too! 🙂

capitalism has this weird double standard where it's supposed to work out with mathematical perfection if everybody seeks their own self-interest, but when workers openly seek their own self-interest they're accused of being *egoistical* and *self-serving* and encouraged to sacrifice for the team and think of the Company, and meanwhile when owners of the Company are egoistical and backstab the workers, it's a virtue.

free market ideology is fully incompatible with work-as-virtue ideology, but capitalism will hit you with one or the other, depending on what's more advantageous for owners in each situation.

I just successfully fixed one of my Xbox One controllers. The LB-button was not responding reliably anymore. Not a complex repair job, but not a shabby one either..

@pants @balrogboogie "free" is a trap word to obscure the flows of power. if you say "water should be free for Nestlé to come and fence it", you are empowering Nestlé to the detriment of people (BSD license). If you say "the rivers in our city should be freely accessible by fascist warships", you are giving resources to fascists (GPL Freedom 0).

The refusal of the free software movement to take a stance against capitalists has empowered capitalists, because Amazon can get a lot more power out of all the "freely" available code than individual workers can, in the same way that Nestlé can get a lot more power out of a spring than you can.

Moreover the very unspoken premise that this is a problem solvable by licenses in a legalist framework pressuposes that laws and courts are good and work for the people, preventing reforms of the real cause of software injustice: private ownership of the means of production. The freedom to see the source code means nothing if the server farms, networks, computer factories etc. are all controlled by a handful of capitalists.

WIP Raspberry Pi CM4 module adapter for MNT Reform. Made today with KiCAD on my Reform in the home office. Still needs a bunch of components for the STDP2600 HDMI->eDP converter.

An interesting exercise.

Pros of CM4: Quad Cortex-A72, 8GB RAM available; potentially higher OpenGL versions and Vulkan possible (not tested by me yet);

Cons: No USB3.0. Only 1x PCIe. DSI undocumented. Might need active cooling.

hey all, here's a new computer thing I made! it's called the Nonsense Laboratory, and it's a series of weird little tools for manipulating the spelling and sound of words with machine learning:

it's part of a series of projects launched yesterday showing the outcomes of the Artists + Machine Intelligence grant program, which you can learn more about here:

Remember the only thing standing in your way is you...

Oh, and a whole lot of systemic injustices too.

»Viele Deutsche wollen umsteigen. Sie wollen aufs #Rad. Nun muss die Politik in die Gänge kommen und eine fahrradfreundliche #Infrastruktur schaffen. Der dringend nötige klimafreundliche Umbau der Städte setzt breitere und sichere #Radweg|e voraus. Große Versprechen sind zu wenig. Der #Radverkehr in Deutschland braucht endlich eine zupackende Politik.«

Of 5 failed LED lightbulbs I checked, all of them had perfectly working LEDs, and various kind of heat damage (solder joints, caps) because of bad design.
Those things are clearly designed to fail.
