- 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.

HUGE ANNOUNCEMENT!

Judge Trenga has declared the grand jury ENDED & Jeremy RELEASED from his contempt!

Sadly, this doesn’t mean total freedom, but it does mean he can return to the BOP to finish serving his time, which is a step closer to freedom!

More info & statement soon.

Moving interview with @jz outside of Whoolwhich/Belmarsh court about the #AssangeCase, the usurpation and massacre of our original internet dream, and the essential role of open-knowledge like #Wikileaks in improving our understanding of reality.

when rich people say someone will destroy the economy, they mean they are gonna destroy it for them. rich people are very dependent on the state to coerce people into generating obscene amounts of wealth for them

There's the POSIX® way and the Plan 9 way

The POSIX® way means meticulously recreating every known Unix quirk while proclaiming this sacrifice happens in the name of compatibility

The Plan 9 way means taking the nice things from Unix and improving on them, while replacing other things with new, clearer solutions

"We’ve already laid the infrastructure of techno-fascism. We’ve already created (and are creating) the panopticons. All the fascists need to do is move in and take the controls. And they will do so democratically, before destroying democracy, just as Hitler did."

In these European countries whistleblowers, activists etc. can still communicate anonymously using prepaid SIM cards (in green).

Tomorrow the European Court on Human Rights will decide on my complaint against mandatory SIM card registration. patrick-breyer.de/?p=590380&la

Clever solution for dotfile management: drewdevault.com/2019/12/30/dot by @sir. This is what I wanted, insta-adopt. But maybe I'll also add the files to include negated in .gitignore, so there's no need to use -f and the tracked files are listed in there.

Developer-driven software distribution is a bad idea, which is why I dislike things like Flatpak.

Having distro maintainers involved in the process and installing your software from a free software distribution like Debian or FreeBSD is a much better distribution of power. The packages can be tuned to suit their environment without the developer having to repackage it for every distro, and the distro maintainers can keep out anti-features like telemetry and advertising.

The middleman may seem annoying to developers, but embrace the model and it'll work for you. Landing packages in your favorite distro isn't actually that hard, and the rest of the distros will follow. If you're an end-user who wants to see some software available for your distro, look into packaging and volunteer - it's easy.
