#Microsoft is updating their terms of service again. They are now going to start blocking contents of your email based on what you say or upload.
The terms take effect August 15, 2022.

Somehow can’t let go of Vader literally meaning “Walker”. But fallen — not “Sky” anymore.

🇬🇧I am outraged: EU effectively prohibits anonymous payments in #crypto.

We should have a right to be able to pay and donate online without our financial transactions being recorded in a personalised way!

So just for fun (this is fun for me) I tried to come up with a non-jokey Latin phrase for “Don’t let the bastards grind you down”:
Non patimini beluas pessum atterere vos = Don’t let the brutes/beasts grind you down/into ruin
Nolite pati beluas pessum atterere vos = You don’t want to let the brutes/beasts grind you down/into ruin (if you’re attached to the “Nolite”)
NOTE: This might be gibberish. Don’t use on actual Latinians.

Please boost for reach. So, anyone that is working on FOSS projects like web apps, sites, Linux apps, desktop environments, or other user interfaces, please let me know if you want them tested for accessibility. I can do both CLI, web, and GUI testing, and app testing on Android. I'm running Debian (on a ChromeBook but that's not too important), so just give me the name of the package, or the URL of the site or app. I can also do Flatpak!

The nine ancient and honourable tenets of Junism, spontaneously invented just now (3)

7. Consider how much the media get wrong about the stuff you know. How much do they get wrong about the stuff you don’t know? And how much might “your side” get wrong about “the other side”?

8. An it harm none, do as thou art told. (Okay, that one’s a semiprivate joke)

9. The truth doesn’t care about your feelings, but stuff’s not true just because it hurts.

4. You can change and be things you currently aren’t. You aren’t in any “hardwired” way cursed or excluded from life.

5. It’s easy to be a saint in paradise or a devil in hell. Would you be equally good under all circumstances?

6. If life gives you lemons, you can still just go explore the universe.

The nine ancient and honourable tenets of Junism, spontaneously invented just now (1)

1. That banning/mandating/regulating (something) would make life nicer in some regard is not sufficient reason to actually do so.

2. Don’t be heartless. Maybe not everyone’s fighting some hard battle you’re just not privy to, but it’s more common than you know, and it’s not just the people you like.

3. You wouldn’t treat anyone else this badly, so why are you doing it to yourself?

Is that GTK file picker that constantly goes into autocomplete/search mode tripping up anyone else all the friggin’ time?

seriously, "humour me" in Dutch is "do me a lol"? ("Doe me een lol")
