@adam Also, I forgot to mention, this ties directly into Epstein.

@adam Not sure if you follow RMS (of the GNU project/FSF/MIT), but he's under fire for what I think is a couple of statements he made that were taken out of context. Somewhat of a "cancel culture" type of situation. Here's a Vice article that also contains the email thread that shows his actual statements: vice.com/en_us/article/9ke3ke/

I'm really getting fed up with my Thunderbird setup. I need to spend the time getting back to CLI mail, I think. I'm just not sure how to deal with all the HTML based mail that I get. Need to find a way to do that relatively seamlessly.

If you put a program named "git-whatever" in your $PATH, git will run it when you run "git whatever" so it acts like a regular git subcommand.

I was curious how that was implemented, so I just went and read the source (github.com/git/git/blob/master).

I heart Free Software

This morning I wrote PHP for Magento. This afternoon I'll be writing C#, and then probably going back to PHP for some Magento 2. Wew.

Enough beating around the bush. GNOME 2 was one of the best desktop envrionments ever. Then the culture of the GNOME team got completely out of whack and they have spent all of their time since making Linux worse for everyone. We rewarded them for making the best desktop by giving them the most market share, then they just waved that big cock all over the scene, undermining their project and fragmenting the ecosystem. The fault for Linux desktop fragmentation can be placed squarely at their feet. Fuck you, GNOME.

PSA: Stop labelling people interested in OPSEC and privacy as "paranoid". Paranoia is a mental illness, heavily influenced by fear, that makes someone believe they're under constant threat even when there is no evidence for thinking so.

Being careful about your online identity, privacy, taking care of your passwords, and using second factor authentication is not paranoia. It's common sense.

There are malicious actors who want to get their hands on as much information as possible. This is fact.

I made a script to grab a link to a random image of Richard Stallman.


When Microsoft finally flips WSL and instead boots to a Linux kernel with an NT module on top, I hope they use the name they won in a lawsuit: Lindows

For anyone concerned about git repos on sr.ht being wiped by a bad actor's git push, just thought I'd set your minds at ease. git.sr.ht DOES use the same gc process as Gitlab, which means objects are removed as soon as you delete them, BUT I also take a full (encrypted) backup of all git repos every 5 minutes. I can restore anything from any point in time in cases like this. Same applies to hg.sr.ht.

Guix 1.0 is out at last! YEAH!
It even includes a "graphical" (read, curses-like) installer now! (The oldschool DIY route is still available if you like that though!) Lots of other stuff too!

Congrats Guix team!

Well it seems like over half of all Telegram users hate this feature. Durov (CEO) released a poll on his channel asking users if they like it and want to keep it or if they hate it and want it removed.

If you use Telegram, please vote to keep it. Complete control over your digital footprint is something that I, personally, think is essential and the fact that Telegram lets you have this much control says a lot about the platform.


There are still a few things it lacks like cross-platform encryption by default and not requiring a phone number for registration but this is a major step in the right direction.
