A mature fellow, with a hankering for control over my own computing.

For a reliable, lightweight distro with all functionality exposed into an accessible way, from desktop to custom window managed power setup - I've found caters for my needs. Including my eternal obsession

Simplicity, Choice, Freedom and Control - along with Ethical, Sustainable, Private & Secure computing for all!

#ukpol

The #Tory party membership is neither politically, socially nor economically representative of the U.K.

But they are nonetheless determining the #PM of the entire country.

This is no #democracy, not even a representative one.

The only word to describe this type of government is as an #Oligarchy.

The rule of the few over the many.

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!

Five years of #Fosstodon seems to have gone by so quickly, and in the time it's been here it's done so much more than @kev and I anticipated. Thank you everybody in the Fosstodon community who have helped make it more than we ever expected it could be!

All News Is Bad News

thomasjbevan.substack.com/p/al

"Well, from my experience you ignore all of the things you cannot control and that have little bearing on your life (again, if there is some news that will actually effect your life you’ll hear about it) your focus narrows to your local environment. To yourself and your family and your street and your neighbourhood. These are things you can influence. And from here your influence ripples outwards, and rather than being trapped by impotent rage and fear and confusion, you see that the reality is that you can make things happen. And this is the only piece of news that matters."

@rmgr All ebooks from Tor books are DRM free, I believe.

And all of Cory Doctorow's books are available without drm. Many of them are available for free, released under a CC license.

monkeypox, homophobia 

If you assume cases are limited to gay men, and subsequently only test gay men, you'll only detect cases amongst gay men.

You don't need a doctorate in epidemiology to figure out that's terrible science and policy.

There's no way the WHO has never heard of confirmation bias. Or is not aware of the horrible homophobic history of the AIDS epidemic and the likely consequences of blaming gay people for this epidemic.

This can't just be incompetence. It has to be malice.

Could you imagine the creative and innovative explosion there would be if everyone's needs were met? It is a damn fucking shame we're being robbed of that by the greedy.

4 years ago and a day, I started using Emacs, through org-mode. At the time, I was only curious. I thought it might be a cool tool to try. Four years later, I can't imagine my life without it.
