Pinned toot

I just donated 25$ to GNOME to fight patent trolls. And so should you! It doesn’t happen offen that someone rejects the settlement and wants to go through courts to get it invalidated, including filing a counter claim so they can’t just drop it.

my dad can' t manage passwords

he looses them instantly and then he calls me to be rescued

I' ll see how to use a ub key to login in his gmail account

but if it could be used for his computers too that would be way better

I'm getting a little sad every time I see articles talking about normal things like being introvert or a late sleeper as of some sort of pathologies needing to be "fixed" or at least "worked around".

"How to wake up at 5 a.m. every day," — better ask, why?

software development requires anthropologists and psychologists 😐

What does "operating system" mean, today ?

PCs are almost extinct, only gamers still support that industry.

The personal computing (whatever "personal" may mean, in today' s context) is on phones, nowadays

And "in the cloud"

Does building a GNU operating system still make sense ?

What' s the vision ?

It' s not a rethoric question

I understood the vision of an operating system in the PC era

Now, I'm not so sure anymore

Recently my psychoanalist told me that realtionships require work

When I lamented the fatigue I was having in dealing with a couple of people

I think the same goes for Free Software communities

Communities require management (that is work)

As a mantainer, you can' t say "I'm doing what I can, my task list is piling up" when it comes to community management

You are prioritizing code and system administration

the result is that communities rot and the projects rot with them

Now he is further pleading with the fascist to stay "on topic"

So, alienated women, be sure that if someone comes preaching for your violent esclusion, the GNU mantainers will plead with them for staying on topic

Doesn't this make you feel better ?

🤦

If you were one of the women who were alienated by Stallmanism, how would you feel about the fact that on the mailing list the fascist propaganda can go unfettered for days ?

Ricardo Wurmus (a mantainer and core contributor) stated explicitly that he can't be bothered with moderation, right now

But he could be bothered with rebuking those who expressed discomfort

So if you were one of those women, the official line is you have ti take It, priorities are elsewhere

GNU is unsalvageable🤦

Today is the holiest day of the Jewish calendar. It's the day of self-reflection and atonement, and on this day, shooters around the world have targeted Jews.

When I say my people are under attack in large and small ways, this is no exageration. Please don't be part of the hatred towards Jews, and be mindful of the micro-agressions that we face and listen when a Jewish person tells you that something is antisemetic.

If you care, please pass this along.

Here is the resignation letter I sent to Richard M. Stallman and the GNU project today.

#GNU #Epstein

I always knew it was bad, but never this bad. The #RMS resignation from #FSF seems to have shaken loose all the conspiracy theorists and devotees. Its mailing lists and forums are full of them, still distracting from the public charitable interest of the non-profit.

So many blinded by hero worship that they don't realize the viral poison said hero had on the #FreeSoftware movement. The immaturity of these folks is arguably the biggest blocker of software freedom from widespread adoption.

I' d really need an IRC bouncer

I hate to lose conversations when my laptop goes off line

But I can' t bother with one of those single board computers, too much work (and money)

I' d appreciate an IRC server to conserve the bits I' m missing and then send them to me when I come back on line

I don' t know of the protocol has an extension for that and I don' t care

I' d want it anyway

I have a quite disturbing picture of the 2 remaining stitches on my leg

I remind my readers that a mole was taken out recently

These last 2 stitches will be cleared out on monday

The first 2 ones were eliminated last monday
