"Police are warning students and universities not to access Sci-Hub, an "illegal website" that allows users to download scientific research papers normally locked behind expensive subscriptions."

Very bad indeed. That name again: Sci-Hub. Remember it so you can avoid it. Ahem.

The itch.io Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality continues to add a lot of great games. They have Celeste now, which is probably the best platformer of all time. Some other favorites of mine include They Bleed Pixels, Super Hexagon, A Short Hike, and Oxenfree. There's also heaps of tabletop games and asset packs for game devs. You need to pick this bundle up, it is the best deal in the history of gaming.


They've raised almost $5M now for BLM-related causes.

asking for help to get away from an abusive living situation, boosts needed 

does anyone nearby (i'm in riverside county, in southern california) have a place i could stay in the near future? like, a couch i could sleep on? not yet, but it looks like things are gonna go to shit pretty soon no matter what i do, so it'd be nice to have an escape plan ready. my parents have been incredibly abusive since i moved back in with them, especially since they found out i was trans. today they went into my backpack and took all my hormones, and that's only the tip of the iceberg of the bullshit they've put me through. at the end of next month they wanna take me to mexico and i wanna be gone before then. please help.

Hi all. I'm a musician and recent Linux audio convert, currently working on new material (after a long hiatus). I'm also developing/self-hosting my first website (more on that soon), attempting vegetarianism, collecting a private cache of unpublished philosophical essays, trying to turn a somewhat idiosyncratic narrative theory into a practical screen writing system, obsessively researching transitory fascinations, and forgetting to meditate.

Hit me up if this resonates.

You are at #36c3?
You want to reduce wasted beverages?
Tag your bottle!


(This is the first time for me providing this kind of service during an event. Please excuse any delays or inconveniences 🙏)

Please help reducing waste during #36c3 and consider the following items for a more sustainable packing list, citing from the excellent list at [1]:

- reusable coffee mug
- camping cutlery or spork: the food stalls give out single-use plastic cutlery
- reusable bottle to stay hydrated (German tap water is drinking water unless specified otherwise)
- for angel work: last year's lanyard with portrait-format card holder, to reduce waste

The #komona #36c3 pretalx is now online allowing you to submit sessions, workshops and talks:

Leaving for build up at the end of the week.. getting excited :D

Who's also going to be at and wants to meet up? :)

Naturalizing () - Workshop by Miki Kashtan

This is probably the most important and useful input I've come across since I read the NVC book, really exciting!
I already did some of the things she talks about kind of intuitively (I always felt that textbook NVC speach is terrible for anything besides exercises and workshops), but there's also many things that I didn't really think and reflect on yet.
Will have to look up more of her work. :)

So far I've just transcribed my banking statement for this month.. I think I don't want to bother with tracking how I spend cash (groceries etc.)
Basically I cash out 2x 150€ each month and this should be enough for groceries and anything else I want to buy in a physical store, so I have pretty good spending control there.
My online spending behavior though.. :D

Started to use for my personal budgeting today.
Does anyone got useful tips? :)

What are ya'll using instead of Meld for diffing on Linux?
I've installed a dark mode theme for Gnome a while ago and all the text in Meld isn't readable anymore..

Listening for the third time to the amazing speech of @aral at the EU Parliament, this time looking at a better video which contains also his slides:


At minute 12:20 he rocks and says:

"You are acting as an unpaid Research and Development department for silicon valley. Because if a startup here succeeds, it gets bought by Google or Facebook. If it fails, we pick up the bill."

Für den #36c3 nutzt doch die Ticketbörse unter events.ccc.de/congress/2019/wi und lasst die Leute auf den überteuerten Tickets auf dem "Schwarzmarkt" sitzen.

If you have a .org domain name: go renew it now. For the full 10 years.

Registration rights for .org were just bought by a private equity firm. And as part of that contract, the price caps were removed.

Anything in .org will get much more expensive, soon.

A ten year renewal will cost you a bit over a hundred bucks. Which is probably less than one year will cost you in the very near future.

So let's get on with this - for #36c3, we are crowdfunding scooters for everyone!

If you want to be able to roll around with scooters during next congress, why not donate a few euros for the commons?
