Holy fuck, #Craigslist just shut down their personals.
The CLOUD Act would let cops get our data directly from big tech companies like Facebook without needing a warrant. Congress just snuck it into the must-pass omnibus package. - https://www.reddit.com/r/technology/comments/867jo1/the_cloud_act_would_let_cops_get_our_data/
@Krita 4.0 is here!
A new brush set from @davidrevoy SVG support on vector layers, combined brushes, Python scripting and the spanking new Colorize Mask Tool makes this one of the most exciting releases yet.
OpenStreetMap: now more than 1 million map contributors!
OpenStreetMap is a map of the world, created by people like you and me, free to use under an open license.
A milestone has been recently passed which deserves some celebration.
Over the lifetime of the project, 1,000,000 different users have created a user account and made edits to the map.
Why not sign up right today and map your neighbourhood?
In terms of countries that respect its citizens freedom, the UK is kinda like the drug abusing uncle nobody wants to talk to.
Oh Forbes. Poor Forbes.

Let's port FarmVille to the fediverse
I've been getting acquainted with #GitLab after listening to the latest episode of FLOSS Weekly. My jaw is on the floor. I can't believe I hadn't tried it before. So many options... And the fact that you can self host it is invaluable. #GitHub is way too centralized. #GitLab looks like a better option.
I long for the day that this game either works flawlessly in Wine, or has an FOSS engine reimplementation.
X is the Tenth Gate. If opened, it releases the Darkness.
X Windows came out of the Gate. It's just another name for Windows 10. Apple's been secretly running it since 1999.
X11 is the Eleventieth Portal. It's eleven times worse than X.
X.org is the Xorgs. Don't mess with them.
Gnome and Kade both sit beside the Gate and will tell you that the other one lies. Maybe not even one of them is telling the truth.
Enlightenment is a mad druid who laughs at all who pass by.
I guess my only concern is that GNOME, seems to be pushing for some controversial changes and removals. Also with that recent reddit thread, KDE seems to me the absolute best a modern (or heavyweight) GUI shell could get for our community. If this new LTS gets in Kubuntu 18.04, I'll leave GNOME.
