I await the day that Wine stops creating file type associations (MIME-types) by default, without asking. It will make using Linux a lot easier for beginners who decide they need Wine. I doubt everybody wants their text files to open with notepad.exe by default, and all images and web-documents to open in Wine's iexplore.exe
@kensanata first time i visited europe i was surprised by how much people in a 'first world' country could actually live their whole lives thinking they are 'good people' and 'do no harm to others' (and really, they're not doing anything wrong) and recycling and being nice to their neighbors. without realizing they were working for companies that actively engaged in social exploitation in far-away lands, buying things made by someone that makes 1 dollar a day etc.
because in these first world country everything is so clean and orderly. and the trains come on time and you don't see poor people on the streets. poverty is elsewhere. but it's hard to see how much your life impacts poverty across the globe in these situations. we need to remember, as david harvey always says, how did the food we eat was produced. the things we buy. why are they so cheap? how can i buy a shirt for 5 dollars if getting a haircut where i live costs 4x that?
It's so disgusting when schools trade kid's privacy for convenience.
Maybe it is time to create a "Fuck Off Google" union in Canada and in the US?
Parents should pressure their government to ban Google and Microsoft from schools like it is happening Switzerland:

@pixelfed Hello. The one thing that I hate the most about Instagram is the low resolution of uploaded pictures. AFAIK Pixelfed is circa the same in this. On my monitor (QHD res) the feed is very small, and when zoomed in, the low resolution of pictures really shows itself.
What is your opinion on this? Is there a different service I should use?
If you are alone today and that gets to you:
1. Yeah you can just not observe the day but it's still completely legit that it would hurt to be alone today anyway
2. Treat yourself treat yourself treat yourself you deserve so much love and there's nothing wrong with giving yourself that love
3. Observe Nitteknakht, the Jewish tradition of eating Chinese food and seeing a movie.
4. Remember PLEASE: Treat Physical Illness, Eat, Avoid Alcohol (stay sober!), Sleep, Exercise. It will help a lot
My only function in life has always been to be a #creep. Apparently always will be and even more so now.
Anything less would be blasphemy to the opinions this world imposes on me and its sense of self.
So excuse me if I kiss the sky and dream to myself of alternate universes.
If you'd like to put snow on your website for decorative purposes, in 2011 I made this small thing:
Good morning friends 🙏🙏
Our minds, as well as our bodies, have need of the out-of-doors. Our spirits, too, need simple things, elemental things, the sun and the wind and the rain, moonlight and starlight, sunrise and mist and mossy forest trails, the perfumes of dawn and the smell of fresh-turned earth and the ancient music of wind among the trees.

So finally I deleted(for the second time) my email accounts and kept just one #protonmail
Hopefully they will release an f-droid version sooner than later so I can go Gapps-free again on my phone. Lately I was looking at other email services but never liked anything as much as Protonmail
