#Omicron ist das perfekte Argument für die Aufhebung der #Patente: Nur global bekämpft kann das Virus geschlagen werden; geschieht dem nicht (wie in Südafrika, wo es an Impfstoff mangelt) tragen auch wir den Schaden - durch neue Mutationen, nur für den Profit einiger Firmen.

still weird to see lead prevention ads in the wild in 2021. like it’d good they’re there but it’d incredible to me they’re still needed

Maybe we should stop trying to adapt live-action shows out of cartoons whose primary visual draw is being able to realize incredibly imaginative settings that are either prohibitively difficult or outright impossible to visually-establish in a medium other than animation.

I just want you guys to know that the multiple *years* I've had my music on Spotify and iTunes have still made me less money than the first two weeks of the same albums on Bandcamp.

Please support artists directly if you can.

What is software obsolescence? 🤔

Manufacturers often stop updating the software of a phone device. If the user continues using it, they face security risks. Or, they have to buy a new phone.

With #FreeSoftware you have more control over phone's updates

@norcalgeekdad, for lectures (schools and conferences) I think it’s also worth mentioning BigBlueButton.

It would be preferable if educational providers used 'unhangout'
Unhangout

Unhangout is an open source platform for running large-scale, participant-driven events online. You can find the documentation and how to setup your own server...

Do you use Zoom? The company recently announced they may begin showing ads at the end of video calls for "basic" accounts (blog.zoom.us/zoom-continued-ac). Would you rather your work or school video calls be free from advertising and tracking? Check out Jitsi! (meet.jit.si)

I mostly go to reddit these days for r/learnpython, because I like helping people and I often learn clever tricks that help me. But I'm starting to get frustrated by the habits of the people who post there; I feel like the comments that get the most upvotes are either "this is exactly how you do it, no I'm not going to explain why it works" or "why are you even trying to write code if you don't know how to do this", neither of which is useful in what's supposed to be an educational environment.

Bei einer Online-Bestellung/Abschluss einer Dienstleistung willige ich NIE in die Übersendung von Newslettern etc. ein. Und dennoch: Man bekommt sie ab und zu dennoch. Um es mal deutlich zu sagen: Das kotzt mich an! 🤮

Kann mir mal wer erklären, weshalb sie Impfzentren geschlossen haben? Hab das zu dem Moment schon nicht kapiert, aber dachte, es gäbe nen Plan. Ich Dummerchen.
Sie scheinen die aber nicht nur zu gemacht zu haben, sondern abgebaut. WarummmMmmMMMM?!

Ist das eigentlich selektive Wahrnehmung, oder geht es euch auch so, dass die öffentliche Werbung fürs Impfen immer nur dann gemacht wurde, als es keine Impftermine gab? Zwischen August und Vorgestern hab ich nicht eine einzige Werbung dafür gesehen.
