Holy cow, Airbus is shuttering the A380: https://www.cnn.com/2019/02/14/business/a380-airbus-news-emirates/index.html
Airlines, particularly in the Middle East, are shifting to the Boeing 777x - not the 787 Dreamliner, interestingly - even though the A380 is barely a decade into production. Airbus has received fewer than 300 of the 1200 orders it expected, and it just doesn't have the requests to keep the production lines open.
Today, take your time to say #ILoveFS:
* I love #NVDASR, a GPL screen reader which is better than the proprietary competition.
* I love #audacity, which lets me record and edit audio and has enough keyboard controls to have decent #a11y.
* I love #ThunderBird. I trust it with my email, and I take my email very seriously. Keep it all from 2001.
Thanks for all the #FLOSS!

"Relax. Let your mind float. You exist."
"Decouple from your body. You see a previous life. What do you see?"
"I see... a floor."
"Is it far away?"
"The floor is close. It is dirty."
"How does that make you feel?"
"I must clean-" The robot woke. "I was a Roomba once!"

oh cool, the communist current finally launched!! it's a communist youtube channel that seeks to explain theory and current events to people, based in canada by two members of the youth communist league (one is trans and queer) and it seems way better than other communist youtubers because they're 1) not men and 2) not third worldists lol anyway this is a good video explaining dialectical materialism https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nmRVoJFFkcw&fbclid=IwAR2j7WijqgPi76XDI6uWKFmEnG-EFYNEl6F-I0PUcYOC-xBCesDPA9EEq-c
