I've opened a backup account at @fdavidcl in case something breaks here at mstdn.io. No need to follow me there now, just a PSA.

Also, friendly reminder to export and backup your account data from time to time.

"i use linux as my operating system," i state proudly to the unkempt, bearded man. he swivels around in his desk chair with a devilish gleam in his eyes, ready to mansplain with extreme precision.
"actually," he says with a grin, "linux is just the kernel. you use GNU+linux."
i don't miss a beat and reply with a smirk, "i use alpine, a distro that doesn't include the GNU coreutils, or any other GNU code. it's linux, but it's not GNU+linux."

the smile quickly drops from the man's face. his body begins convulsing and he foams at the mouth as he drop to the floor with a sickly thud. as he writhes around he screams "I-IT WAS COMPILED WITH GCC! THAT MEANS IT'S STILL GNU!"
coolly, i reply "if windows was compiled with gcc, would that make it GNU?" i interrupt his response with "and work is being made on the kernel to make it more compiler-agnostic. even if you were correct, you won't be for long."

with a sickly wheeze, the last of the man's life is ejected from his body. he lies on the floor, cold and limp. i've womansplained him to death.

Two weeks ago, Australian children went for three days of #ClimateChange protest. Prime Minister #ScottMorrison told Parliament "what we want is more #learning in schools and less #activism."

If you haven't listened to it already:
"You only speak of green eternal economic growth because you are too scared of being unpopular. You only talk about moving forward with the same bad ideas that got us into this mess, even when the only sensible thing to do is pull the emergency brake. You are not mature enough to tell it like it is. Even that burden you leave to us children. [...] You have ignored us in the past, and you will ignore us again. We have run out of excuses, and we are running out of time. We have come here to let you know that change is coming, whether you like it or not. The real power belongs to the people."

15-year-old Swedish climate activist #GretaThunberg addressing the U.N. plenary last night. She has called for a global school strike on Friday.

Several days ago my phone stopped recognizing my simcard. I restarted it, removed the sim then put it back, even factory resetted the phone and changed its ROM.

Today, I used an old microcomputer/console trick: blowing inside the slot. It worked.

So essentially my phone can be fixed the same way as a 30-year old MSX, which I guess is nice.

Una de las cosas más importantes que he aprendido sobre la vida mientras hago el doctorado (gracias a ver en qué no me quiero convertir) se resume muy bien en esta foto.

It's no longer possible to build a browser engine from scratch. Each time an engine goes extinct it's a monumental loss.

All I can hope is that Microsoft open sources EdgeHTML so that someone else is able to continue the work.
