FOSS is political, but also kinda weird.

Most political viewpoints have nay-sayers, but you don't get people who say 'code should be hidden'. Nobody loves Windows - they put up with it. Nobody says it's great that all governments have their computers controlled by a single, foreign corporation.

It's 100% 'raising awareness' and 0% antagonism.

Linux difficulty levels:

Making an install script which includes 200 programs and all dependencies - Low

Automatic backups and selective directory synchronization across tor - Medium.

Reversing terminal output so the prompt is at the top - Completely Impossible.

PSA: If you are a publicly practicing Christian, do not use the Bible for password inspiration. It's not a good book for that type of inspiration.

Given what I've been clearing up today, I'm expecting to get a copy of Leviticus in the next edition of Kali.

Nice work on Hausregeln. My German's poor, but the layout looks really clean.

Could I recommend adding
"*pdf" to your .gitignore file? It avoid having the git expand by the size of the pdf for each change.

If you want a pdf in the repo, gitlab will automatically compile it for you seperately, e.g.:

Just finished season 2 of Silicon Valley. They're about to delete their program, and claim it was an accident.

I'm struggling to give this a realistic interpretation.

If anyone needs to provide Linux support for family and friends, but you can't be bothered port-forwarding:

- install tor
- vi /etc/tor/torrc
- ucomment /DataDirectory
- restart tor
- note that hostname

You can now access that computer from anywhere in the world to help people, even when they're not at home.

For added cool, alias help='sudo systemctl start tor', so the process is only running when they need it, then just tell them to type 'help' in a terminal if they have a problem.

PICO-8 starfield.

It's the most basic pseudo 3d scene to display but the more effective visually and still my personal favourite :)

Git commands use the imagery of tree, but I think it's obviously structured more like seaweed.

capitalists reinventing public services poorly is one of my favorite tropes

I only watch shows when I'm working on something, so I never watch anything that requires focus. As a result, I've stopped watching things I care about, which means I'm exclusively watching things I don't much care for, and by design.

I didn't mean to choose this, but I did.

I wonder if Stallman's the only Philosopher to have his ideas made into a legal contract.

It seems like a good test. Perhaps we should subject more Philosophers to it.

New arch arm installation's saying 'command not found' for `tty` and `hostname`.

I don't know how I screwed this up so badly.
I don't even know how the thing boots if it's that borked.
