The last time I evangelized about software as much as I evangelize about NextCloud it was encouraging friends in the early 1990s to get an e-mail address. Which is hardly early adoption for e-mail, but there you have it.
Many free NextCloud servers to try, self host (via @yunohost in my case) not bad.
@Merristasis Meat is pretty expensive compared to animal products like egg, despite eggs from free-range chickens being a bit more expensive than those produced through exploitation. Eggs contain most if not all fats and vitamins meat contains. Your cost should go down.

Very proud to be a @gnome Foundation member right now.
I like advocating for a Web without any clientside programming, so it's easier for browsers to protect your privacy/security and render pages to more mediums like speech synthesis. Whilst having an easier time rendering those pages.
Now I want to think through how I would design a system for running sandboxed programs downloaded from the Web.
Lmao I have pissed off some people by saying stop painting rocks and pebbles with acrylic paint and leaving them in nature spaces.
It's become such a popular thing here, especially with tourists, and every one I've seen has been painted with acrylic. Plastic. They're taking things out of nature, covering them in plastic and putting them back. This is apparently a method of appreciating and connecting with nature.
Wheelchairs, Venting, Info Request
Does anyone know of any handbrakes for wheelchairs, or wheelchairs with handbrakes?
By this I mean "I get brakes for my wheelchair" rather than "someone stood behind me gets brakes for my wheelchair".
(there are *tonnes* of the latter around, but afaict none of the former outside of one company who make brakes for specific wheels in Texas)

@bremner 's poll made me look at my system.
This is what you get for testing multiple browsers :-(
@yatil Those are the best kinds of missing people cases.
*All* intelligence performs better in a scope, but artificial intelligence is even worse at setting its own scope than humans are
ML algorithms get their reputation for high CPU usage and large data requirements because they are operating on n-dimensional matrices for excessive values of n. Other computational fields avoid quadratic behavior. AI says, "Hold my beer"
Anything that reduces the value of n for an application is going to reduce resource requirements, whether that's making the task more specific or discovering new constraints to apply early in the evaluation process
That's how gatekeepers and rent seekers get made irrelevant
Basically, "notarizing" is a new name Apple made up for signed apps, which means that literally 100% of software for Mac will now have to be Apple-approved
and they're already putting conditions for approving that software, which we should be very thankful they have relaxed or something
