Ugh, literally can't pay my power bill now.

Want to pay by credit? Get redirected to a payment site that no longer exists.

Want to pay by bank? Can't anymore, because i had set that up and their withdrawals didn't go through and now I'm blacklisted from paying my power bill via my bank even though it wasn't my fault and they didn't even *tell* me that my payments weren't going through (leading to a bill pileup).

thought experiment: git repo of theseus

- fork a project under license A
- new commits licensed under A, but all contributors of new commits agree to relicense under B if some event happens
- entire codebase is eventually replaced with commits under that agreement
- can you switch to license B? (is there copyrightable content that remains under license A?)

(I am not a lawyer and neither are you)

Today was productive. Got a lot of positive feedback on my plans for improving Gecko's process model this year.

Now I just need to get started on the work.

GNU Project guidelines recommend interactive applications have an about box that displays the GPLv3, but I found that a bit boring sdfn-01.ninjawedding.org/media

Is there a Mastodon app (android) that:

- supports multiple accounts
- is generally good
- supports CWs when tooting
- collapses favorite/boost events or allows you to filter notifications by mentions-only

(Alternatively, what app do y'all use and like?)

So "Mمنشh" is an interesting nested ambigram of my name.

I.e. it kinda looks like my name in cursive-ish English going forward, and it contains my name in Arabic going backwards.

I think if I stylize this correctly I could get something that looks pretty neat and more clearly looks like my name (both ways)
