Here's the really bitter pill we need to swallow to start moving past monopolistic capitalism: there is no replacement for Amazon, Github, Twitch, and Google. Period.

Their ease and usability are the result of monopolistic privilege.

The things they do are technically, logistically impossible without a trillion dollar mega-corp doing them. For the average use-case, your QoL will drop, significantly, moving to a smaller or self-hosted solution.

You need to accept that, and do it anyway.

Also, in a historic win, Arizona voters pass Proposition 208! Proposition 208 restores hundreds of millions of dollars in K-12 education funding to solve the teacher shortage crisis, lower class sizes, hire aides and counselors, and expand career and technical education.

"your music is great, you could make so much money! put it up to stream!"

Anyone who complains about Nvidia issues on Wayland (or Linux in general!) has a moral obligation to boycott their business. Wayland developers have told you exactly why Nvidia is not supported, and who is to blame. Harassing Wayland devs because they have a name and a face you can harass, rather than boycotting the faceless multi-billion dollar company who is responsible, makes that person an asshole and a shitty consumer.

Nvidia is the one who deliberately engineers cryptographic solutions to subvert the free software driver. Nvidia is the one who refuses to collaborate with the community on standardization. Nvidia is the ONLY GRAPHICS VENDOR WHICH IS NOT UPSTREAM.

If you spent $1,000 on a GPU which became a brick when you tried to use Wayland on it, that's on YOU. Not on Wayland. Letting your confirmation bias protect your ego from the possibility that you made a mistake and turning that feeling into harassing FOSS developers and spreading misinformation about their work is FUCKED UP and needs to stop.

Shout out to that time Elon musk got twitter to suspend every account with his name in them because of shit like this

Normalize talking about how much you're paid with your co-workers.

It is the only way people will truly realize the income disparity between themselves and their just-as-qualified queer and/or BIPoC friends and colleagues.

This should be normal in ever industry. The fact it isn't is actively aiding executives in systemically discriminating against minority groups.

@Sarklor same problem as Blacknight so, they aren't providing LetsEncrypt either =/ Is the site static or something dynamic like php?

Why call it Mypy when you could have called it Typhon instead? 🤔

You ever thought about how ridiculous the names of our tech overlords are?

I wonder if we'd also get used to talking about Dingdong and Tableleg being the overlords of the internet instead of Google and Facebook.

My fellow Americans, would you like to know which way to the Bastille?

BBC propaganda 

BBC Radio 4 is really pushing gov 'back to work' agenda today.

The only two commenters on were talking how this was temporary, sandwich workers losing their jobs, how staff are important but companies will figure out how to bring them back into the office, and of course the spectre of "offshoring".

They tend followed up with the Brittania song bullshit.

@JordiGH you need to avoid burning yourself out too, dumping a few hours into a game can at least be short-term self care =)

I’ve been programming 20 odd years. Languages and fashion changes; but comments?

Comments are forever.

The Mozilla layoffs really suck, my sympathies to all those laid off and the survivors as well =(

I think Google should save everyone a lot of time and effort and jump straight to discontinuing new services:

"We are proud to announce that Google Kitchen Tools will no longer be available on Sep 1st 2020, nor has it ever been available. Should you wish to export your Google Kitchen Tools data, you should be aware that there is no data, as Google Kitchen Tools has never existed.

Thanks,
The Google Kitchen Tools Team"

@nloomans @sir
I don't think it's a reason not to do it, the pros should outweigh as long as there is notifications of "Your DD will come out in a week, make sure you have enough in the account for your own sake" =)

@nloomans @sir I've had that happen on Standing Orders when broke and unemployed (BOI charging you €12.70 for having no money is shite) but can't remember for DDs.
