I could be mistaken, but I think this is a Kubernetes.

Big Tech needs to play fair if we want a better web. But Tutanota users can't register a Microsoft Teams account and Microsoft won't change this. This demonstrates why stronger antitrust legislation is needed: tutanota.com/blog/posts/micros

Just found out that yesterday was Earth Overshoot Day. This means that humanity has now used up all biological resources that Earth regenerates during the entire year. For the rest of the year, we are living on the reserves of Eath.

Microsoft has asked Lenovo to make it harder to boot Linux on their computers.

obviously I know some really cool people who work at Microsoft but it's very funny to me that people have been harping on us FOSS types for not instantly forgiving them for 20 years of malice, and now we've got this. [1]

when Microsoft is asking manufacturers to prevent people from booting other OSes and not communicating as to why, they are positioning themselves as the enemy. it's that simple. if they want to be trusted by Linux users, they need to earn that trust.

we're about 2y away, by my estimation, from living in a bizarro world where x86 PCs are less open to free desktops than ARM Macs.

Be gay.
Do crimes.
Do not discuss or plan those crimes in signal. If one person in your group is a cop or if your friend lets cops access their phone, it will leak your identity to the police.
Do not use biometrics of any kind to lock your data. Use a password.
Do not email randos about your crimes. If you have to email trusted contacts, use double key encryption.
Do not discuss your crimes next to siri, Alexa, a smart phone, or any other "smart" appliance.

soft. ware.

basically hacker news went down yesterday and in this screenshot someone chimes in talking about it saying that they had a batch of SSDs manufactured by SanDisk all get bricked after exactly 40,000 hours (4.5 years) uptime because it overflowed an internal counter and corrupted the SSD's internal state.

someone from hackernews replies and says that the SSDs HN was hosted on were in fact SanDisk Optimus Lightning IIs and almost exactly 4.5 years old.

Did I ever post a photo of all the bats that used to live under my deck in Arkansas? I kept hearing this squeaking sound coming from the deck and went down to investigate and was surprised to see hundreds of pairs of eyes looking back at me. (CW: a lot of bat eye contact)

Okay, this is amusing. This person is taking advantage of Rust not having built in protection against cosmic ray induced memory bit flips to have a software based cosmic ray detector.
