Phew. Found a cat-sitter. Laundry is going. Didn't manage to get a guix box up and running (laundry and cat care took precedence), so at this point it's probably sanest to take the macbook with the working Coq environment on it to DeepSpec rather than trying to learn the ropes of Yet Another Unix while also trying to keep up with a summer school.
So many boxen, so little time.
I compose sacred and secular choral music, and put it online under a CC by-SA license so choirs can sing it for free!
Publishers won't touch my work because I won't let them prohibit photocopying, so I need support from people like you.

Thank you so much!
Couple notes for mastodon.social moderation:
If you're reporting someone for spam, please include at least one toot in the report, it saves time for us. Especially important if you are reporting someone for DMs, they are not visible in our UI unless they are included.
Don't report sex workers for "illegal in the US", this isn't the US. If you don't want to see anyone from switter.at, open the profile of anyone from switter.at and choose "Hide everything from switter.at" in the dropdown menu.

A possible alternative approach to Web search is for sites to be self-indexing, with sharable indices, and validation (and penalties) for deceptive practices (either false term inclusion or exclusion).
The simple existence of a websearch and index protocol would wipe virtually all of Google's present value.
To all of you who have called, and those who wrote an e-mail, and those that support #SaveYourInternet in all different ways, from very vocal to very silent -- thank you.
You guys are amazing. You are taking part in a political and historical process.
This is an old one, but a golden one. And it applies to 2010, 2012, and now just as well.

THIS IS IMPORTANT!
We need people to call their MEPs. Most importantly:
- Romanian S&D:
- Romanian EPP:
- British S&D:
- British ECR:
- Italian S&D:
- Polish EPP:
Please report back (in a private message, preferably) what they say! This would help us a LOT!
If you cannot call, if you feel uncomfortable calling, this is understandable, please do not feel bad! And apologies for putting you under pressure in case you felt that way.
I hate calling people. I am lucky enough to be able to overcome this, and I try. But if you can't or won't that's entirely fine!
Any support counts. Support Wikimedia, EDRi, Panoptykon Foundation, Mozilla. Many, many others.
The calling needs to continue. Additional group to focus on -- Portuguese S&D: http://www.europarl.europa.eu/meps/en/search.html?country=PT&politicalGroup=4280
More groups in the parent toot.
What they need to hear is:
- Copyright Directive's Articles 11 and 13 are a danger to the free Internet
- Copyright needs fixing, but this is not the way to go
- Please vote AGAINST THE MANDATE tomorrow.
Be polite. Say your name, and who you are. Be respectful.
