If governments of the world realised (as I've often suggested) that they should be funding critical digital #FOSS infrastructure, instead of OAuth run by mega corporations, slurping our data with their surveillance capitalism bizmodels, we'd be using Mozilla Persona and our lives would be better for it. Huge opportunity missed. Sadly, by failing to take it, you've thrown further fuel onto the fire currently razing our national and personal sovereignties.

Enjoying my morning #coffee just as @klaatu called for a coffee break during GNU World Order. ☕ 😅

@LateNightLinux @JoeRess @felimwhiteley @degville @8none1 here are a few screenshots of my #xfce setup. Main thing I do is put panel on the left and use docbarx plugin so I can have "grouped" window icons. Admittedly #cinnamon is my primary DE but we make sure XFCE there for light-weight users also.

Yes, do your research.

Go to an academic library. Use the catalog. Find peer reviewed articles exploring the topic. Search out papers reproducing experiments. Write a abstracts, and use them to write a literature review.

You know. Research. :flan_book:

@klaatu Waste Paper Basket is now fully operational. It can trash, undo, list, empty, and passthough to rm all with non-colliding command line options to rm for maximal alias compatibility.

I haven't upgraded the version to 1.0, yet, as I haven't finished including shredding options or sussing out a few issues with --one-file-system inherited from the uutils implementation, but since its primary objective is replacing rm with a safe alternative, I still consider it fully operational if not feature complete.

I also included a easter egg unicode option inspired by hearing people try to disambiguate the "-d" option on HPR. Its long form may be easier to guess, as I used the same easter egg command as in Zork.

Here's a little thing that may not be obvious to many people....

When you install an open-source app from Google Play or the Apple app store, there is no guarantee that what you install actually matches the public code.

@fdroidorg are doing a great service. They independently build the public source code for apps from scratch, review for common issues, and publish their builds. Thanks to "reproducible builds" it's possible to verify they do not tamper with the code.

Interesting read about why Docker failed.

Sample: "The former CEO notes that all of these factors created 'natural tensions' as Docker grew. 'We wanted to build great community and monetize the developer product...' "

I can't decide whether the model of open source products that get VC funded and then go broke in 10 years is a good thing for open source or a bad thing. We get to keep the code, so that's nice, but that fever around monetizing open code....

I tried Groovy this weekend and enjoyed it. However, I discovered that there isn't a great way to distribute a script to other users. As far as I can tell, you just have to tell your users to install Groovy, and to run 'groovy ./myscript'

Am I missing something obvious? I was hoping for a better end user experience. I've tried scriptjar and a few other hacks. I want to avoid anything too hacky, because that defeats the point.

My latest silly #remix hobby is dragging the progress bar around on video clips live to the beat of a drum machine. I call it the #Scrubbymix.

(Warning: glitchy and strobey audio/video.)

A "podcast" behind a paywall is not a podcast.

A "podcast" that only one app can receive is not a podcast.

A "podcast" without a public feed that can be freely pulled into any podcast client or RSS reader is not a damn podcast, don't let people get away with calling it that.

I've finally gotten around to trying k3s on my CentOS Pi array, and so far it's the best Kubernetes-on-ARM experience I've had.

Internet is a place where:

People sharing corporation's "property" is compared to attacking ships (piracy)

Corporations sharing between them user's data is "respecting their privacy" and "improving their services"

An album recommendation for #BandcampFriday

@klaatu and his amazing podcast GNU World Order helped me discover this wonderful album so thank you Klaatu.

#music #BandcampFriday

Hello fediverse! I made a new #bandcamp page for my more experimental music and I just released my first track under the name "the_emergent":

It is 16 minutes of slow, harmonious #ambient #electronic made with #SuperCollider.

Happy #BandcampFriday, everyone!
