Like I have said in the past, people who complain about git are spoiled. Git is a pleasure to work with.

if lbry loses the case against the sec it's going to set a precedent that the only way you're allowed to compete with youtube is if you do the same exact thing youtube does

Statement of FSF board on election of Richard Stallman (RMS):

The #Signal messenger has become very problematic lately, and most of its problems come from it being centralised.

You may want to follow and support a decentralised messenger project instead, there are many of them on the Fediverse:

➡️ @snikket_im - New initiative giving XMPP servers & clients a newbie-friendly unified look and feel

➡️ @xmpp - The XMPP standards foundation

➡️ @matrix - Matrix is best known for its Element client

➡️ @delta - Messaging through email

➡️ @briar - P2P messaging

On programming being "easy" 

Programming *can* be rewarding, but it's not easy.
Programming is only easy as far as cooking is easy. If you like cooking, cooking is easy. But you quickly realize how difficult actually preparing a meal "at scale" is.
Honestly, you don't have to code. You don't even need to want to code. You're absolutely not missing out by not coding.
Building a shed for yourself can be a fun 3 weekends. Building sheds "professionally" not so much.
All I'm trying to say is don't worry about it. You don't need to code. Do something happier and more fun instead if you want to!

Looking for people interested in joining an . One of the worst things of being self employed is if you slack off no one knows.

I'm interested in starting an accountability group, for people working on tech projects. Basically will just do a daily standup, what we did yesterday and what we plan to do today. Maybe more.

Please contact me if you are interested.

Consistent Technical Documents Using #Emacs and #Orgmode

"A chrome extension to add a notice to repositories from anyone who has signed the RMS Open Letter of support."

The LundukeJournal:
Chrome Extension for Persecuting RMS Supporters

Github repo:

FSF announces review of existing board members, adding staff representative. Does this mean they're going to review RMS's position on the board?


People are complex.
People are different.
People are irreducable.
Unknowable, even.

This letter is manipulative.
It reduces a person to a set of labels and calls for action.

Even worse, it implies that differing opinions alone are a valid cause to intrude into his life and to separate a person from his life's work.

And not only him, but other people as well.


@BrodieOnLinux your video gave me the extra push I needed to become a @fsf member via :bitcoin:

What is great about bitcoin is that all of the payments they have received is public information.

@BrodieOnLinux So is now listed on the @fsf board of directors page.

That is probably about as official an announcement as you are going to get.

People who complain about are spoiled! Have you ever done a merge with ? Have you ever tried to tack multiple versions with ? I have you ever wanted to work on a file when someone else had it checked out from source safe?

Git is a pleasure to work with, and anyone who thinks otherwise is just being sophomoric!

> <> Doesn't that () contradict the unix philosophy?

That would be like saying that Bash contradicts the Unix philosophy. Emacs does one thing well, interpret emacs lisp.
