To be clear: I reserve exactly the same amount of tooth & claw for left-wing authoritarians as I do for right-wing authoritarians.

"Examining btrfs, Linux’s perpetually half-finished filesystem" by Jim Salter arstechnica.com/gadgets/2021/0

Interesting deep-dive. I only dabble as a hobbyist sysadmin, so I'm glad this isn't something I ever tinkered with.

I finally deleted my google account :blobdab:

I’ve had this account for well over 10 years and had everything there. When I became more privacy-aware I deleted a lot of stuff from it and migrated to other services but I was finally able to delete it for good :blobcat:

I’m happy and relieved!

you know you live in a certain sort of political area when an offhand comment on the city subreddit about how police unions need to be brought to heel and reminded of their place gets gilded and is near +100 in about two hours.

The other camp does realize the Pages are run by inauthentic actors. They hate the ever-loving shit out of these Pages. They hate these Pages with a passion that even I find impossible to match.”

My fellow openEngiadina developer @rustra was arrested in Minsk, Belarus on charges of organizing protests last year. He has reported being tortured.

This is a strong reminder of the ongoing repression in Belarus.

Resist repression and support victims!

Also: AAA big-name game titles work beautifully in Wine now. In fact, it's such a good experience at the high end that I don't even recognize that I'm using it. It feels native.

With experimental Mesa drivers on Wayland, I'm playing games like Cyberpunk 2077 at almost max settings (1080p, no raytracing) and the level of detail, fidelity, and smoothness is fucking mind-blowing.

Granted, Proton and Vulkan are doing most of the heavy lifting here, but it's legitimately shocking. I remember when Wine barely worked, and Linux game ports were incredibly shoddy.

Is there a site like joinmastodon.org, which can filter instances based on what server software and/or web interface they run?

each time I see it stated or implied that not eating ass is shameful, I become incrementally more receptive to ideas about Western degeneracy

Would you, or somebody you know on the Fediverse, be experienced in and interested in working on a explainer-style video with #Owncast? You know the type. High level, fun, animated, approachable, shareable. This is a paid project!

I'd rather work with somebody on the Fediverse than head over to freelancer websites.

Starting from scratch on this, so you'd help come up with ideas as well as execute on the video. If you could, please share with somebody you know who does this kind of work.
