Tried to use MS Teams the other day.

Didn't work at all in firefox, wouldn't show me incoming video in chromium.


Is that as much as I should expect from Teams or are there tricks I'm missing?

This is likely going to be the stupidest thing I'll ever ask here, but I've got a domain I love that I use for email and Matrix that other people might want to share?

For close-to-cost ($5 USD per month for basic features) I could set people up with a your-name <at> email (hosted on and an matrix user.

All I'd be getting out of it is a few extra bucks towards the hosting of the matrix server (run on

"It's useless for future vision-"
"Because it'll show any possible future, yes, I know. But the past is fixed."
"We thought so. But look here. It's tuned to 200 years ago."

SOCIALIST REALISM: Before the cosmonaut can take their first step, an army of workers must crunch numbers, fabricate parts, draft blueprints, and test and design rocketry.

CAPITALISM: uuuhh Elon Musk makes the rockets go.

Is this the part of the play where we make a bunch of noise until customers get reimbursed for the books they lost access to? getting pretty tired of this

They're making Failing Grayling the chair of an important parliamentary intelligence committee.

I don't know what the security services equivalent of paying a company with no ferries 50 million of taxpayers' money for a ferry service that could never exist (the ports weren't capable of docking the ferries even if they had existed)… but I guess we're about to find out.

A spaceship landed. Its door dilated. A robotic arm extended. It held a face mask.

Another round of patches to binutils and gABI… hopefully this one gets in and I can tackle the libc side next.

Dear Free Speech enthusiasts:

Your free speech isn't infringed by people that criticize you for the utter bullshit you emit. Telling you off your your crap isn't a threat to free speech. It just is just another use of free speech. Calling you out on your bullshit is just as much free speech as you are using to put it out. Free Speech doesn't mean your "opinions" should go unchallenged, because frankly, you do challenge a lot of things of others with it.

Conservatism consists of exactly one proposition, to wit: There must be in-groups whom the law protects but does not bind, alongside out-groups whom the law binds but does not protect. There is nothing more or else to it, and there never has been, in any place or time.

Many people have written lately asking for the best way to get electronic editions of my books and audiobooks, so now's a good time to remind you that I run my own ebook store, where I sell my publishers' electronic editions of my books:

So I'm getting the 30% that Amazon would take if you bought the books from them, then I send the 70% to my publishers, and then THEY send me 25% of that back as my royalty - basically doubling my income.

“Bossware” is software that surveils workers on behalf of employers. Vendors insist it’s legal, but it often goes way beyond what’s necessary or proportionate to keep companies running smoothly.
