I have now moved PijamaClock and other personal projects here: git.esperanzaproxima.net/Pijam currently redirects to gitlab, but will self-host if ever needed. As a bonus I've commited a change that now lets you configure any variables via PijamaClock.conf Have a look and let me know what you think!

jokes aside though, I think it would be good for him to take some time to address personality issues.

Even ignoring the privacy aspect, am I the only one that really does not like these virtual assistants that are so common now?

Ie Bixby, Cortana, Alexa, Siri, and even Mycroft

I finally wrote that blog post I've been meaning to forever now about how I came to be a Linux user. I think @omnipotens had asked us about that at one point.

master after merge with release branch (branched from develop), but 'git diff master develop' still shows differences...

Is this maybe a lesson in why you should not cherry-pick commits from master into develop? (much before release branch was created)

Any experts in the house? I basically have a master & develop branch: Both branches have had changes, but develop has the latest features. After creating a new release branch from dev and some commits on release, I find merging of release branch into master loses me some earlier changes made in develop & I'm confused on how that could have happened?

"Google AMP Can Go To Hell"

Google's Accelerated Mobile Pages initiative is an attempt to bully web devs into helping build the new "AOL Online" experience for Google, starting with an Open Source interface to an entirely proprietary cloud.

If this isn't similar to the Azure long game for Nadella's Microsoft I'm gonna lose a bet.

Protip for Chrome users: to improve your security when using Google Chrome, uninstall it and use a browser that’s not from a company which makes its money from spying on you 24/7

My heart really goes out to kind and well-meaning call centre folks who work for bad companies. You guys deserve better.

Fun fact: there are 5578 instances and ranks 82 in number of users which means it has more users than %98.529939046 of other instances.
In terms of number, LinuxRocks ranks 169 which means it has more toots, activity basically, than %96.970240229 of other instances.

As becomes more and more mainstream, I feel there's an interesting challenge ahead for all of us who consider the 'Free' part of 'FOSS' an essential part of why we use it. Although I feel some pragmatism is fine and even necesarry at times, we must not forget that the 'F' is basically what got us to this point in the first place. So I guess that should be /Linux then, shouldnt it?

It’s not data ethics, it’s ethics.

It’s not data privacy, it’s privacy.

It’s not digital rights, it’s human rights in the digital/networked age.

Let’s make sure we keep the focus on what’s important and not allow well-understood terms, concepts, and existing rights to be redefined by those with vested interests in clouding* the conversation and eroding our human rights by backdooring in a new set of lesser rights for the digital/networked aspects of our selves.

* See what I did there? 😛
