You might not like it but this is the most optimum layout for programming

I don't want to live in a state where I'm continuously forced by threat of violence to have high tech substances with regular upgrades injected into my body.

Anyone who supports the proposed vaccine mandates and who denies that the principle of bodily autonomy and sovereignty outweighs whatever emergency has been declared, is an enemy of freedom and violates a fundamental human right.

Yeah, that's one of the strangest things for me. People who can lecture you about privacy and the need for free software to avoid power abuse, but somehow think we should all use a bio-surveillance app and vaccine passports and force people to take emergency authorized experimental gene therapy against their will.

@Mateo Could be nitter.net that's misconfigured, but the error message makes it sound more like a wifi network issue.

@Mateo always the same website, or different ones? If the latter, might be your WiFi network which is to blame. Maybe it's using TLS certificates in some buggy way (I'm not a networking expert)

This is my son, Benedict. He died yesterday, suddenly, aged 5. I just want everyone to know that he existed, and to see his beautiful smile and know how wonderful he was. He was such a bright spark, the kindest boy. His time with us was the greatest gift πŸ’”

Really? I've been to Auschwitz and I don't remember hearing anything about a whorehouse.

Tech enthusiast: "I want smart lights, smart tv, everything, and connect them all to my digital assisstant!"

Tech worker: *looks wistfully into distance* "I should get a small place in a little town, with a garden, make my own furniture."

There are so many inside jokes, running gags and riffs on fedi.

"pondering the orb", "don't be afraid of angels", TempleOS etc.

The other day I tried to explain one of the jokes to my wife. She just gave me a look of utter incredulity and confusion.

My 3yo is constantly asking "What are you laughing about" when I'm scrolling my timeline.

I mean much more time tinkering with the system than I do now (with vanilla Ubuntu).

@stevenroose @jb55

The rollbacks worked, I did that a few times as well. It's also cool to be able to declaratively configure your entire system and easily reproduce it on another machine.

But in the end, I was spending much more time tinkering with my system then doing actual work.

@stevenroose @jb55

I used NixOS between 2015 and 2017 and at least then it lacked many packages. Haven't kept up to date, but somehow doubt they have more packages than all other distros.


I already told my wife and family I won't willingly take a booster.

But if they follow through with EU-wide mandates, then what am I going to do?

They will fine you and/or throw you in jail for not complying.

I'm thinking of leaving the EU, but that's a huge undertaking that can't easily be done quickly, and it would put a huge strain on my marriage.
