FUCK IT.
I'M DOING IT.
Consider this to be the official call out for fedi artists for a Hong Kong benefit compilation.
Any style, any genre. Any length.
All money goes to 612 HK Fund.
1€ minimum, under new Bandcamp account.
Live recordings, demos, remixes all welcome.
Probably gonna be called something like "Fediverse for HK" or something. Feel free to add your idea.
Please boost. Please contribute. Please tell your friends.

Just set #Nitter up 😏 Similar to (and inspired by) #Invidious, it's an alternative frontend to Twitter but without ads, tracking, or javascript. It doesn't use the official API so there are no rate limits plus you're never connecting directly to Twitter, and it's *much* more lightweight.

You guys have any issues with making the comp CC Attribution Non-commercial No Derivatives?

I really hope we get a new RTJ record this year as well.

No lie, clipping have made me singlehandedly care about hip hop again in the first time since like The Eminem Show LP.

I really hoped they will let The Rita go all out on this.
They didn't disappoint.
A whole generation of hip hop fans gonna learn what a HNW is and that's awesome

#OpenBSD has disabled #DoH by default in our #Firefox packages. This is active in -current, and will be in our 6.6 -release.

From @otto 's commit message:

"""Disable DoH by default. While encrypting DNS might be a good thing, sending all DNS traffic to Cloudflare by default is not a good idea.
Applications should respect OS configured settings."""

I can't really cancel the split anymore either, and I am too afraid to ask them if it is going to be a problem thru email, since it can be easily monitored.

With the nice turnout the comp has, I'm probably going to remove my track. I have an upcoming split with a Chinese artist, and I fear for their safety should the police track them and see they collaborated with someone who is pro HK.

Hey let's play into all of their dumb conspiracy theories what can go wrong.

Oh wait, people are now dismissing facts as fake news and we are actively helping create a divide oh well at least we got money out of it please subscribe

And they wonder why the right wingers don't trust the big media anymore

Then again, it's the same paper that printed Israel state propaganda...

I don't take any sides on that issue, because I have basically no idea what's going on and am completely uninformed, but if you print state propaganda based on character assassination, you're full of shit about democracy and fairness.

Also Washington post: *prints Hong Kong propaganda ads*

I'm happy about the last few Magic: The Gathering announcements, because it finally made me realize the game really is ruined beyond repair and there is no reason to hold on to my collection.

I'm in process of contacting some HK protestors directly, and so far they all told me the money would be better if it's donated to the Spark Fund instead of 612. Apparently it's also favored by the frontliners.

I will also need a native speaker to help me write an introduction for it, where I want to compile some of the information about the protests.

Also a graphic designer for a cover. I'm thinking just using one of the images from the protesters themselves, but I dont have an access to a PC, so I would need someone to crop and render it.
