politics 

Our politicians are desperately trying to convince you that there is a fundamental difference between their wars and Russia's wars, that our wars are fought for values while Russia's wars are fought for greed and power.

Sometimes they slip, but even this just causes a minute of laughter, because they know they will never be held accountable.

Ich will keine 8K Fernseher und selbstfahrende Autos. Ich will eine 4-Tage-Woche und die Mietpreisbremse.

A little thread about a new feature for the command line image processing tool I'm working on, Super Irudi. The summary of the new features is this: at the left you have the original picture, and at the right final one.

Fliegt ein Wedding-Spatz nach Mitte
Bettelt dort nach Spatzensitte
Um 'ne mitteldicke Fritte

Denkt die kluge Jute-Jutta:
Dieses Tier braucht jutes Futter
Und kredenzt in kleinen Schritten
Selbstgeback'ne Quitte-Schnitten

Schimpft der Spatz: Wat is'n ditte?
Schwabenkekse hier in Mitte?
Ick will einfach Fritten, bitte.

In Berlin, it is now a punishable offence to publicly display the soviet flag ☭ during May 8th/9th (liberation/victory day)... because of Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

That's clearly the best way to honour all the Ukrainians who were part of the Soviet army and died at the hands of Hitler-Germany.

Strangely, it is also exactly what right-wingers and neo-Nazis have been demanding for years, now 🤔

In case anyone needed evidence, how dangerous the modern privately-run tracking system is:

In case any of you wondered how “Germans” are called in Icelandic.

Checking on progress of FreeBSD's announcement from 2 years ago where they decided that 802.11ac support in a BSD kernel requires a wrapper layered around the entire Linux wireless stack and the iwlwifi driver, instead of programming a driver against the firmware interface like everyone else would do.

Announcement back then: nitter.net/freebsdfndation/sta

Status as of last week: marc.info/?l=freebsd-wireless&

:flan_popcorn:​ "you can always spawn a small bhyve VM" :flan_eyeroll:

If they had chosen to keep porting wireless driver changes from OpenBSD instead, they would already be using 802.11ac today, and we could even have arrived there much sooner, together :flan_facepalm:

Someone built a Nextcloud app to send and receive faxes. No kidding. apps.nextcloud.com/apps/pax_fa This could be a breakthrough for the digitalisation of the German government 😉
