Ultimately, mainframes and thin clients are going to win. And it will be tremendously bad for your freedom.

Police want to talk about you? "I don't talk to police. I will review your questions with a lawyer."

Police want to talk about someone else? "I don't cooperate with police investigations."

Your instinct is to talk and the police will take advantage of that, don't worry about being rude.

Hmmm... #YewTube is broken. No way I'm going back to #youtube though. They (Google) messed the whole thing up. It's a malicious site exchanging abuse for some bandwidth.

will play the conspiracy theorist and speculate the next move for fedora is systemd-homed.

Also, can we make a point of always calling it Microsoft #GitHub from now on please? Thanks.

I implemented CGI support for gmnisrv and wrote a simple tool to look up POSIX man pages over Gemini:

Projects that say "we can stay on #github because we're not like #youtubeDL really" are as foolish and selfish like so-called 'journalists' who said #wikileaks "was different" and "not my problem". #deletegithub

Just saw an article about ad revenue and print media in Switzerland. In 2009 it was CHF 1’925’000’00 – and ten years later it was CHF 924’000’000. – and they say more or less this lost ad revenue now goes to Facebook and Google. From what I remember, in theory half the income of print was ads, so about one fourth of the former print media income goes to Facebook and Google. It is both scary because of the money being siphoned away and because of these dependency then and now. Gah!

#microsoft is gaming quite a few "Linux" fora, sites and sections into promoting Microsoft's #ProprietarySoftware under the guise of "Linux", corrupting the brand and alienating actual users

just like extinction of some creatures threw ecosystems out of whack, so will the removal of youtube-dl. for those that think all they have to do is change host, what about code that have the uri hardcoded? what about the other applications referring to youtube-dl on github?

this is why centralized repositories is bad. why constructs do not last. why bsd have a sturdier package system. why static linking is better than dynamic linking.

leave homogenity to monarchs.

For a number of reasons the word "Abandonware" is inapplicable to #freeSW

get some crackers. relax. watch confidence in githun stocks and use of github freefall. if i was a betting person would be yelling, "short! short!"

so traumatic has been my experience with msft over 2 decades that i try to avoid being around a windows workstation for more than 2 hours. the only time i feel close to comfortable is during games of candy crush saga, ignoring all the attempts to syphon all that is mine through the sensors of the host.
