Youguys, #CentOS 8 is finally coming out. At long last!
It's on a few of the mirrors already. I just checked again and it's on some that are local to me too!
You can find them by going to your local mirror and then removing the bit that references the version number (example: http://mirror.example.ca/mirror/CentOS/).
“Right here, right now is where we draw the line. The world is waking up. And change is coming, whether you like it or not.”
My full speech in United Nations General Assembly. #howdareyou https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v33ro5lGHQg&feature=youtu.be
Today at 11:30 I and 15 other children from around the world filed a legal complaint against 5 nations over the climate crisis through the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.
These 5 nations are the largest emitters that have ratified the convention.
“I think what we should do as individuals is to use the power of democracy to make our voices heard and to make sure that the people in power actually cannot continue to ignore this.”

Why is anyone still using Facebook?
Facebook paid third parties to transcribe users’ voice messages
"While this news is initially shocking, the more you think about it, the less shocking it becomes. In a statement to Congress in April of 2018, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said that the company does not use user audio for ads. He did not, however, disclose what the audio is used for."
HIV prevention PSA (tldr you can get PrEP for FREE)
if your reason for not being on PrEP (the pre-exposure prophylactic medicine that almost entirely prevents HIV from taking root in your body) is that it's too expensive, you should be aware that you are entitled to receive it 100% FREE OF COST to you via Gilead's "Advancing Access" program. Not only that, it's so easy to sign up I literally did it in line at the pharmacy when they told me I'd have to pay $3k for my script pickup.
There is no reason for you to pay ANY MONEY for PrEP.

"Google is also data-mining the inboxes of paying customers—including corporations, nonprofit entities, small businesses, and schools—for transaction data."
Das ist der Grund, weshalb man sowohl Privat als auch Geschäftlich auf Google verzichten sollte. 🧙♂️
Part of our mission is to help end Privacy Nihilism, which is the notion that there is nothing we can do to protect our privacy - that it's too big to handle - that there is no hope and no way to recover from our surveillance culture.
It's not too big.
There is hope.
