Just set up ssh public key auth. It's great. Would highly recommend.

Me in front of the monitor: "I'm so tired, can't think anymore."

Me in bed: "I'm so bored, can't sleep now."

Arbitration was created to allow giant companies with equal bargaining power to settle disputes without incurring expensive court battles. So, when IBM and AT&T struck a deal, they'd agree that instead of going to court, they'd hire a neutral person to decide who was right.


@xgqt I normally encourage people to update because of security but in Windows It just remind me this picture.

Now this is fucked up.

WhatsApp Will Delete Your Account If You Don't Agree Sharing Data With Facebook

The copyright for the fucking Great Gatsby just expired this year. I think that's a sign that we need to shorten copyright.

Just changed my profile pic on my school Zoom account to be a QR code linking to the THO video about Zoom.

True fact I guess (most applicable to mainstream social media , also a copypasta) 

Dear so-called "social" websites.

Your catchword is "share", but you don't want us to share. You want to keep us within your walled gardens. That's why you've been removing RSS links from webpages, hiding them deep on your website, or removed feeds entirely, replacing it with crippled or demented proprietary API. FUCK YOU.

You're not social when you hamper sharing by removing feeds. You're happy to have customers creating content for your ecosystem, but you don't want this content out - a content you do not even own. Google Takeout is just a gimmick. We want our data to flow, we want RSS or Atom feeds.

We want to share with friends, using open protocols: RSS, Atom, XMPP, whatever. Because no one wants to have your service with your applications using your API force-feeding them. Friends must be free to choose whatever software and service they want.

We are rebuilding bridges you have wilfully destroyed.

Get your shit together: Put RSS/Atom back in.


@clacke @sir @brandon the law doesn't say you have to use a banner. It's a stupid misinterpretation of the law.

There is literally no nothing that talks about cookies. What they talk about is use of personally identifiable information (tracking cookies is one of those things).

The banner itself also is a not enough to get you out of abusing personally identifiable information. The site also should not track you by default (the banner should make it as easy to opt out as it is to opt in).

Based on their post, it seems as though Github is in compliance. Their previous banner was either unnecessary or not enough, depending on what their previous behaviour was.

Now all the of t his assumes the law is actually being enforced, which we haven't seen much of yet. There are some cases slowly making their way through the system, but I don't think expect to see anything in a while. The fact that nothing has happened yet is why people think that the cookie banner is enough to keep the theory illegal activities legit.

i don't know if there's an influx of new users, but my sincere, honest tip to anyone new is to just interact with people in a non-weird way

i've immediately followed back people in the past, and sometimes it's been a huge mistake. but i've always been receptive to anyone who just wants to shoot the shit in a decent way

Just finding out about the Google outage now. I love not relying on them.

Dead storage devices in my life so far:
32GB MicroSD card (not recognized)
250GB 7200RPM HDD (spins up, not recognized)
4GB USB 2.0 flash drive (not recognized)
16GB USB 2.0 flash drive (read only)
4GB MicroSD card (not recognized)

And now, an 8GB MicroSD card may be bugging out and corrupting data. Maybe I'll get to add it to the list.

My dad: "I hate micromanaging people!"
Also my dad: "Are your Stanford essays done yet? Are your Stanford essays done yet? Are your Stanford essays done yet? You're almost out of time! Are your Stanford essays done yet? Are your Stanford essays done yet?"

Am I the only one who prefers trackpads over mice when both are available, even for gaming? I find it easier (for both speed and precision) to move just a finger than a whole mouse especially if I crank up the acceleration, the trackpad is way closer to where my hands rest on the keyboard than a mouse could be, and I don't have to limit my computing to flat surfaces.

@edgren @nighthacker2003 This apk they release on their website is not 100% free software. There is still some Google code. I see no reason to use it over apks hosted on apkmirror.

They should start their own F-Droid repo asap. With actual 'reproducible builds'.

Once you buy copyrighted works, even digital books or music, they should be yours to resell or give away as you choose. We discuss this concept, and how knowledge is increasingly governed by agreements that prevent users from ever really owning things. eff.org/deeplinks/2020/12/podc
