Everyone knows that #BlackFriday sales are pretty awful, the prices are usually the same as the rest of the year!

Trump's social network (Truth Social) is now open source due to pressure from the maintainers of Mastodon.
I have now mirrored the code on Codeberg and GitHub to keep track of changes, ease public examination, and ensure a copy stays public.
I have also generated a basic diff between Mastodon v3.4.1 and Truth Social's latest code. https://codeberg.org/TruthSocial/diffs/
On a whim I decided to install @email@example.com's Yaru theme on my @firstname.lastname@example.org workstation (real easy, just `dnf install yaru-theme`). Hot damn, this thing looks nice. Great job by the developers/designers over there.
Friendly reminder that strikes were illegal, unions were illegal, sit-ins were illegal. The law has no inherent connection to right and wrong, and if we want to save this planet and ourselves we need to understand that.

Congratulations to the new German government coalition for their open source strategy!
hey y’all. american thanksgiving is coming up. i know it’s a shitty colonialist holiday. but i think one way to make some good out of it is to donate money to your local food bank. thanksgiving is also traditionally a food and harvest centric holiday, and demand for food banks spikes during the winter, so i feel like this makes sense. also, the pandemic is still happening and many people are still struggling financially. so i hope you’ll join me in doing this.
yesterday i learned a lesson i already knew about proprietary software
i plugged in my old iPad and asked it to download some episodes of Behind the Attraction to watch on the plane
then i put it in my bag and eventually boarded. once we got to 10,000 feet, i pulled out my iPad and was greeted with, "Please go to the App Store to update Disney+"
except, of course, i was in the air on a regional jet with no wireless, and i didn't need that update anyway because i just wanted to watch downloaded episodes!
anyway piracy is in every way better and more ethical than using subscription streaming services
Thanks for the boost!
