- I also serve our English masters, I keep their precious trains running
- Are you happy keeping their trains running?
- Happy? I don't know, but I'm good at it.
- I dream of hunting in this jungle of metal and asphalt. I imagine my true form leaping from beam to ledge to terrace roof until I am at the top of this island. Until I can growl in the faces of all the men who believe they can own me.
Love, Death & Robots - "Good Hunting"

Messaging systems that require you to give out your phone number as identification are ... at best, suboptimal. See Signal, Telegram.

I realize it makes many things easy, but it's got so many drawbacks (starting with security) that I can't really accept it as a compromise.

It should be noted that it is precisely because we French have a tradition of long-lasting social struggles that we also had a socialized system of insurance against all the risks of life (and not financialized capitalist insurance).

And do not stop at what you see on TV, the French do not burn enough cars.

I just found out that google now requires a phone number if you want to create a new account.
Whatever they tell you, GMAIL is NOT free.

Linus Torvalds: Git is a distributed version control system, which means even if you lose a remote, you still have your local copy, so your code is safe, unlike centralized VCSes.

Developer Community: wut?

Microsoft: Hmm. How about you use our Visual Studio Online and push it to GitHub, both hosted on our computers, so that you don't have a local copy?

Developer Community: Yaay! Such innovation! Very cloud! Much wow! ๐ŸŽ‰

Trump: Thou shall not use US services.

Developers: Where's my code? ๐Ÿ˜ญ

What if the constant rise and fall of chat applications, web sites, forums, wikis, content management systems, social media sites from Google+ to Facebook to MySpace, Twitter and Mastodon โ€“ what if this constant churn was something the people in power actually liked? It disrupts our social ties, makes us start again from scratch, distracts us from organizing out there under the blue sky. Account migration, nomadic identities, federation: these are very important pieces to break the cycle.

@alexcleac I don't have a lot of experience with k8s. It's never been suited to the way I do devops and it's super complex.

I wrote an article about best practices (including travel tips) for PureBoot, @purism 's #FOSS tamper-evident boot firmware that allows the user to control all of the keys and secrets used for the signing process. Check it out here: puri.sm/posts/pureboot-best-pr

"At first I thought DoH was (US) Department of Homeland Security, then I thought it could be an exclamation of Homer Simpson (doh); finally read the article and it seems to be a mixture of the two"

My Free Software heroes are getting cancelled, one by one, due to their own idiotic behaviour...

I'm saddened, but resigned.

Few of those guys were actually good role models, except in the super-narrow fields where they built their reputations.

They're smart guys. They could use those big brainy brains to adapt and change and learn to be better people. They choose not to. They choose irrelevance.

So goodbye, heroes. Thanks for all your hard work, but you've become problematic old men now.

Step aside or get pushed. ๐Ÿ˜”

Please pay attention to the propaganda! Do not applaud people surviving in this dystopia! Instead burn down the dystopia!
