@purism As an original backer of the Librem 5, thank you for finally breaking the silence with an update on the delays and shipping estimates.


I've sent a few emails since the middle of December as a result of the radio silence so I just wanted to say communication like that is all I was looking for.

Amused that the #Slack outage today is preventing so much work from being done, when decentralized #OpenSource platforms like @matrix still exist and are running just fine. Why do people keep using these walled gardens?

Finally got sick and tired of how trash the PIA android app has become. It would constantly cause connectivity issues and had made it impossible to connect to WiFi at work. Uninstalled it and spun up a Wireguard server instead, so far so good. Here's hoping it stays that way in the long term.

Every time you direct somebody to GitHub and ask them to file an issue or use it for some other kind of work (esp. without even stopping to consider whether they even have an account), imagine you have a Facebook group instead, and you're telling them to post in it. Stop and think about why you feel that doing the same thing with GitHub is any different.

Being a GitHub user should not be a prerequisite for public participation.


The user should control the machine, not the other way around.

Now that there exists way more open hardware, it would be nice if we could come together and agree on a symbol for the super key. As a software platform, it’s not practical to use the company logo of every hardware company

Due to the discourse about where to hold ongoing development chat for #youtubeDL, there is now a public Matrix room for same.


Share and enjoy.

Just finished Lenna's Inception "perfect ending" after getting the bad ending last night. It was a pretty great game and was way above and beyond what I was expecting.

Can we please, please – PLEASE! not make the nonsensical US date format month/day/year the default in applications? 🤦‍♂️


And to all users of that format: it makes no sense, it's counter-intuitive, it makes collaboration frustrating, it introduces inconsistencies and errors... Just stop. Please. Use international standards.
(And don't get me started on your other units of weights, volumes and distances. Bloody hell.)

Boost if I'm right.

It's time we stop putting the spotlight on game publishers and put it on development studios instead. Publishers are merely here to ease the distribution process and fund the development of games. Outside of that, they contribute very little.

Dear digital comic stores, DRM on your comics is pointless because this thing called screenshot exists. That is all.

So apparently free game promos with AMD GPUs only apply if you're a Windows user. You have to download an exe to claim them and support basically told me to buy a copy of Windows if I wanted the games when I contacted them about it.
