Really pissed of that 'commonwealth' has the British Empire stamped all over it, because it's such a good word.

Can we reclaim it already?

I've started integrating the new Anti-Features icons into #FDroid. Here's an early preview. Turned out even better than I dared to hope. Thanks @redplanet for designing the icons.

If you read and enjoy my travel posts through my website or Mastodon* and you are planning to travel to somewhere I've been and you can't afford an actual travel agent and you find travel planning too stressful or time consuming to fit into your life, I would be delighted to share advice.

My specialties are land and sea (not air) transit, especially long distance European buses, and finding vegan food. I'm happy to also help with general stuff to do, and even more in-depth help with planning and realistic budgeting if you want because I actually love wasting away hours and days researching travel stuff.

OK, so I'm learning to Linux/code.

Last night I added something to one of my config files to autorun a script when I log in.

I broke my .profile โ€” couldn't log in ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ

I now know a lot more about config files and autorunning scripts ๐Ÿ˜‰

Huge 'Unteilbar' (undividable) demo in Leipzig today. Thousands of people from all the groups: vegans, animal liberators, feminists, anarchists, greens, extinction rebellion, hambi bleibt, fridays for future, art collectives, communists, humanists... a river of colorful, happy people.
