"""Introduce 'auto-join' to the wifi 802.11 stack.
This allows a system to remember which ESSIDs it wants to connect to, any
relevant security configuration, and switch to it when the network we are currently connected to is no longer available.
Works when connecting and switching between WPA2/WPA1/WEP/clear encryptions.

If a young Linus Torvalds had made his kernel a GNU project in the beginning, the kernel project would've been called GNU Linux. But the OS would just be called GNU.
Apparently there's a transnational Amazon strike and boycott today (10th July) due to horrendous working conditions in their warehouses. Let's do our best to support workers & not visit amazon's websites, or their subsidiaries like audible or twitch today!
I've listened to nearly 2h of introduction to Karl Marx' Capital, in German. I think I need to learn more! It makes me see Free Software in a new light. I don't want to make sure Free Software developers will get paid. That's how capitalism stays strong. We need to transfer that money to other modes of production. I don't want to work for the profit of capitalists, I want to work for my own specific wants and needs. Free Software! I need to write a blog post. #marx
I'm gonna say it
it's been almost 10 years since the Pré came out and modern smartphone operating systems still haven't caught up to where it was from an UX standpoint. It may /look/ dated now but just usability-wise, WebOS is still light-years ahead
Regular reminder that if you use #OpenBSD, a great help to developers is to send your machines' dmesg outputs to dmesg <AT> openbsd.org.
If you'd like to help other *BSD users, regardless of what *BSD you use, submit your machines' dmesg outputs to http://dmesgd.nycbug.org/
It's free to do, and works best when we all chip in!

Never been a fan of vi. Since my tryst with gnu/Linux computers, emacs is "my" editor. While trying to customize my i3 setup, I regularly came across qutebrowser. I thought of giving it a shot. I am just loving it. It goes well with the i3 philosophy. If u are using i3, I suggest u to definitely try it. And, no, my editor is still emacs.
I hate Apple mouse and keyboard, but they are really good by producing touch screen and touchpad. They even removed physical ESC key. Why don't they just remove completely physical keyboard from MacBook Pro?
It's really not that hard.
Tax the rich. Feed the hungry. Heal the sick.

So I found out that @bleakgrey is developing a Mastodon client for elementaryOS and it sparked a few thoughts on open source software in my brain. So here's the article I just wrote up.
It is a very cool app! Also, you should definitely donate to the devs as much as you can! Make sure they all have money for beer and pizza!
