Go. Help @gnome to fight trolls. Blah-blah-blah! Blah!

Actually, I've donated 50$, just because I like the way the project was developing lately. And I want them to keep investing money in engineering, not into patent trolls.

This is millions of people deciding to not be part of the problem but part of the answer to this crisis.
This is change

There are serious companies out there with web server setups that send updated `etag` *and* `last-modified` headers for resources that are verifiably *not* changing.


"Just as we recognise a poverty line, below which no one should fall, we should recognise a riches line, above which no one should rise. This call for a levelling down is perhaps the most blasphemous idea in contemporary discourse."

George Monbiot has the right idea.

Tried installing Lineage OS on two different phones today. Turned out neither was really possible while having a reasonably recent version.

Android derivatives are so... weird. Having to build a whole "image" to start your world with? It's a nightmare.

I can still install GNU/Linux on machines that are 15 years old and they still generally boot and run. And I don't need to build a separate "installer" per machine.

How the fuck did phones get THIS BAD.

Galaxies come in various shapes. In general they can be spirals (M101), barred spirals - a bar through the core (M109), elliptical - kind of ball shaped (M87), or irregular with no real shape (M82). #astrophoto

god, why do people keep trying to inject politics into my community defined solely by its radical response to encroaching intellectual property law

Five of six artists featured in this 'Bandcamp Daily' article about Slovenian experimental electronic music scene come from our netlabel #Kamizdat! Uhhh!

I've noticed that having non-music background noise in my headphones works wonders for my focus.

There are quite a few sites that generate these out there (Noisli comes to mind), but yesterday I found this one and it totally rocks:

My favorite feature is "Slider Animation" which configurably changes the volume of components of the "noise" through time, meaning you're not constantly listening to the same thing (yet it's subtle enough not to be distracting). Ingenious.

I really wish veg*ism wasn't presented as such an aggressive, black-and-white moral issue. When you tell someone that every time they eat meat they're committing murder, their only options are to change their lifestyle completely, feel shitty whenever they eat meat, or reject that narrative outright. Most people go for the last

But the fact is, our meat-heavy diet isn't sustainable, and we'll have to change it eventually if our species is to survive. So every step you take *is* helpful

Try to eat less meat. If you do eat meat, make less of it red meat. When eating plants, try and eat in season (and local, if possible). Try out some meat substitutes and meatless recipes - they're better than you think

But don't get overwhelmed trying to change everything at once, because by any measure you're better off doing a little than nothing at all

Finally bought a V60 for home brewing & gave Scott Rao's tutorial ( a go -- it made an incredibly tasty cup of .

Every time I read anything about computer , I realize how little I know about what's happening there.

This morning I finally managed to clear up the confusion between Vulkan vs. OpenGL vs. OpenGL ES vs. DirectX vs. Metal -- granted, Wikipedia has a fairly decent summary of each, and clearing this up was fairly trivial.

Also, I realized that I've had a Vulkan 1.1-compatible graphics chip in my laptop all along, which is neat... Not that I have any idea what to make of it.

The Call for Papers for WebCamp Zagreb 2019 is open!

Come visit Zagreb in October, and join the best volunteer-run community in town.

Boosts, as well as talk proposals, are more than welcome!

Been reading George Monbiot's writings in a bit more depth after he appeared on Frankie Boyle's show... he's incredibly lucid and eloquent.

Unlike many people, he has the welcome tendency to provide very chilling evidence of our planet's imminent cataclysm while not nosediving into total nihilism (and even managing to stay mildly optimistic).

His latest article on capitalism's inherent conflict with sustainable survival is really good.
