i just found out about the African Pygmy Falcon and now so have you LOOK AT IT

I accidentally a Font Degooglifier:
git.occrp.org/libre/fonts-dego

I was sick and tired of having to manually degooglify fonts, so I made this. Seems to work. Handles both local files and URLs.

Perhaps somebody finds it useful.

My ambitions for the Web are crazy. Like I'm thinking about things like:

* I don't want my preferences stored on remote systems - send them back to my server.
* Let me define what you can do with the data I send to you.
* OCAP every fucking where.
* Desktop application support - not the pseudo "offline" stuff that's being peddled.

World: Google, you are so smart, impartial, and benevolent, please write all our protocols and standards.

Google: Oh yeah, btw, we don’t think you should be able to protect yourself from being tracked on our browser.

Mm, this was not a trrs cable. I smell the blue smoke

House and apartment prices in Sweden are kinda insane.

I kind of want to build a window manager that is essentially the BeOS window manager (you can turn a pile of windows into one tabbed window) while also allowing it to behave a tiling window manager.

Mm.

It is preferable that governance of development occurs in a manner that the community at large prefers but I'm not convinced that's even possible, particularly with diametrically opposed interests.

But there's pleroma, mastalab etc so even if this is truly a toxic wasteland, the ecosystem is sustainable. 🙂

Second point was about crediting people and governance, and there's more meat to that point than it looks. I've not paid much attention to the governance of the project, but one part that was not explored is that community forks are fine, and that any group can run their own instance to their own rules.

A lot of conflation between the tool itself and the primary instance, and then the GitHub governance of the codebase.

The Daily dot article has two very separate points: politics is not present, and governance of the project might be problematic. Also the headline was just to bait people into reading it and contradicts the conclusion.

First point: lol, they have never used Mastodon long enough to see the depth of politics here, with the majority I've seen being related to LGBTIQ things than elsewhere, so that's moot and we can set it aside.

The best thing about the GDPR is that it required a bunch of tools to add features to automatically delete old data.

I often just left data there forever because the idea of having to maintain a workflow of deleting things myself on so many services was overwhelming, and now it's automatic.

Is there any scenario where someone hosting a Discord "server" isn't just using it as a more racist, sexist and generally abusive form of Slack?

There's a lot of lazy communism around these parts.

There's this meme in Europe that some kind of quasi-EU exists for the "Commonwealth".

Help a European today by explaining that we do not have free movement to the UK like the British do in the EU, and watch them realise that Brexit is even more insane than they had thought.
