Repost, from the birdsite:
Sadly, Friday was my last day at the #GNOME Foundation. I'm not going to shock anybody when I say that everyone loves free and open source software, except when it comes to funding work on it.
So for those who don't know yet, Freenode had a hostile takeover and the volunteer staff has resigned. Most (if not all staff) have created a new network: http://libera.chat.
##yamahasynths has moved to http://libera.chat. There is heavy load, so things like registering or even connecting may take a while. Point your client to irc.libera.chat, port 6667 (6697 if using TLS).
There is a relay provided for now for both channels, so both the Libera and Freenode channels receive all msgs.
With the latest import from our platform ETIP to εxodus, we are now able to detect more than 400 trackers!
As the list is constantly growing, we have added a search bar for more convenience :)
Thanks once more to our amazing community!
Can we please, please – PLEASE! not make the nonsensical US date format month/day/year the default in applications? 🤦♂️
PRE 👏 TTY 👏 PLEASE
And to all users of that format: it makes no sense, it's counter-intuitive, it makes collaboration frustrating, it introduces inconsistencies and errors... Just stop. Please. Use international standards.
(And don't get me started on your other units of weights, volumes and distances. Bloody hell.)
Boost if I'm right.
