I'm moving back to @js. I don't know what happened in the current debate, but regardless, I do not wish to have an instance dictate me what parts of the Fediverse I am allowed to see. We do not accept ISPs filtering the web, and I think this is no different. If *users* want to block someone or an entire instance, that is fine. But that should be a *user's* choice, not the choice of the service provider. I think there is value in seeing what people you disagree with write.

I really hope is watching the situation closely and will come to the right conclusion. Locking down a project to implement more effective monetization does not grow your business. Mark Shuttleworth's promise was exactly on the right path, and i wish it would make a comeback in 's marketing. programmerthoughts.wordpress.c

There's a quite clever new appimaged code execution exploit.
Short summary:
* Attacker crafts file that is both valid AppImage and valid MP3
* appimaged user downloads MP3 file
* appimaged scans the ~/Downloads folder automatically for appimages and extracts the desktop file from the malicious AppImage/MP3 file
* Missing name sanitization allows one to overwrite arbitrary desktop files of other applications
=> payload execution when user starts overwritten desktop file

merke: menschen, die sich scheisse verhalten, tun das möglicherweise nur weil ihre situation scheisse ist. ändere ihre situation, gib ihnen eine chance wenn du kannst, und du siehst ganz andere menschen bzw das was sie wirklich sind und können.

One of the weird things I do is curating the "Glitch Gallery", which collects accidental artworks, produced by broken or buggy programs! <3

I'm especially amazed by @ManuelaXibanya@twitter.com's submission today – she accidentally applied a text material to a tree! glitchgallery.org/a-poem-as-lo

"Die Gesellschaft für Informatik fürchtet, dass Baden-Württemberg mit dem Office-Paket von Microsoft seine digitale Souveränität im Bildungssystem verliert."

Dem schließe ich mich an.

Frontex is complicit in illegal Greek refugee pushback operations: "breaking the law has become an everyday occurrence at Europe’s borders, and the EU is allowing it to happen".

Youtube-dl is a legitimate tool with a world of a lawful uses. Demanding its removal from Github is a disappointing and counterproductive move by the RIAA. github.com/github/dmca/blob/ma
