The global politics are unfortunately affecting open-source audio. Not in a good way.

The developer of LSP plug-ins may soon be forced to serve in the Russian army. He's previously expressed his strong stance regarding the war and is definitely not on board.

The Linux Studio Plug-ins (LSP) suite is one of the most advanced and high quality. A real beacon in the libre audio.

@humanetech @keith @NGIZero @EC_NGI

if i were to speculate i'd think they mentioned it because it's too big to ignore but they don't actually desire for the fediverse to succeed

because fedi has kinda grown into a thorn against big money social media, having already proven itself to work just fine without the big money, and having grown to where it is out of pocket scale money for servers and domains

which isn't desirable to vulture capitalists that want the next big thing to be something they can milk money from and leave to wilt away when it stops growing

but decentralization has gained too much traction already, so if i had to guess I'd expect to see attempts to co-opt decentralisation, and snuff out what we already have in favor of similar looking platforms tweaked to be more favorable to money

(tbh i think crypto was already an attempt at this, noting crypto social media, but it turned out people don't actually want social media built entirely around money)

Peertube finally introduced in the release 2 things I asked for and really wanted joinpeertube.org/news#release-…

Autosync from youtube or other platforms
Ability to not allow resolutions higher than whatever you select as admin.

Awesome!

One little thing.... @peertube you have used a screenshot from our instance videos.trom.tf to showcase the old and new registration module. Ours as the "old" version. However we have a very customized theme so it does not make much sense to use our instance in that regards. Can be confusing. Just saying 😁 - Otherwise awesome job ofc!

We should update our instance soon!

is a (WIP) FPS . As far as I know it's the first project of this kind done with . We've been going through growing pains working with Godot 4 pre-alpha and then alpha. Now it is in beta and Liblast is getting help from fales who's Godot's networking maintainer. He's been working with me on new netcode to utilize Godot 4's features.

More: libla.st/

I am happy that Liblast is helping Godot :) And very excited to get the game playable soon!

When people say they have nothing to hide, let's reply:

* Post your passwords here
* Write down everybody you hate
* Tell the world who you voted for
* List all the videos you watched

- Medical history.
- Sensitive conversations with employers, children, spouses.
- Billing and banking information.
- Purchase information.
- Web search history.
And more...

I need privacy. Not because my actions are questionable, but because 'your' judgement and intentions are.

And it doesn't matter whether or not my communications are weighty or frivolous in nature - they are mine and only for those whom I've chosen to share them with. Not the government's, nor goog's, nor my ISP's, but mine.

Also, what is legal where I live today, may not be legal tomorrow and my discussion of it may incriminate my future self. It has happened in the past many times to others in other places.

We found some alternatives to contabo.com where we host our servers. Contabo is a cunt, to put it simply, forcing us recently to remove perfectly legal links and such. By the end of this year or beginning of the next we should start the move from contabo to another hosting. I'd like not to....but I am forced to. One particular provider seems quite good and a bit cheaper, we could expand our disk-space for trom.tf.

I am concerned with how to move it all when it comes to friendica or matrix....their databases are immense.....but will see when the time comes.

On this day, september 11, 1973, the democratically elected socialist president of Chile, Salvador Allende, was murdered in a military coup. A US-backed fascist government took power until 1990, murdering, imprisoning, torturing and driving into exile hundreds of thousands of people. Do not let this atrocity be forgotten

I got encouraged to record a reading of the new lore I drafted for my FPS game called Liblast.

So I have redrafted it once more and gave it a shot! If you like light-hearted science-fiction, FOSS and FPS games, you should find this enjoyable :D

The recording as well as the music were made using Ardour, Arch Linux and various open-source aduio plug-ins.

why we need a leftist gun culture 

Recently leftist and anti fascist gun clubs and armed groups like the Pink Pistols or EFJBGC became more visible in the US. And that's good.
Here you can see the EFJBGC protecting a drag brunch from a group of self proclaimed “Christian Fascists” who made violent threats.

Often the public perception is that only people on the right are armed and at least in the US thankfully this is not the case.
