Don't know if I have much to say, but I'm glad to support FOSS, as well as the Fediverse.

Russia should not benefit from European knowledge and expertise.

This week we proposed a new sanctions package that will hit Russia's economy even harder.

It will deprive Russia of an additional €7 billion and its military complex of key technologies.

That's so creepy.

I was reading the subtitles of End of Evangelion out loud to the baby (because she can’t read) and my Apple Watch spontaneously initiated a suicide intervention.

We've had a lot of in-depth technical talks today, at the Conference 2022. But as we come to the end of day 2, here's an overview of... Klingon support in the suite 😁 events.documentfoundation.org/

New article: "The Fedora Project Remains Community Driven"

I rushed through this article (and by rush I mean writing for 10 hours because I'm a slow writer), since this topic is quite controversial. My apologies if it's badly written.

Crimea, Kherson, Zaporizhzhia, Donetsk and Luhansk are Ukraine.

The EU does not and will never recognise this illegal annexation.

We are strengthening our sanctions against Russia and will keep providing strong support to Ukraine, for as long as it takes.

Today, we have approved an investment of over €70 million to support the recycling of lithium-ion batteries in 🇵🇱 Silesia.

This will also support research and innovation for the batteries sector and help develop new and environmentally friendly recycling technologies.

Considering the current situation of the world, two points have become even more clear regarding off-the-grid networks:

1. We are in need of stable FLOSS cross-platform tools (e.g @manyver_se @briar)

2. we are dramatically behind the development schedule of such tools.

Today is we have hurricane, suppressive regime, and war badly affecting the communication and infrastructure.

I think it is time to pay special attention to development and sustainability of such project.

Dark prediction: As ad-blocking becomes more and more prevalent, YouTube will figure out a way to give creators an "unskippable sponsored segment" feature.

And they'll get a cut for the service, because sponsors will pay more for guaranteed views.

I'm not joking.

I used to be skeptical of tablets, but I've become fond of my Nokia T20 tablet I acquired. It's been handy to have around. Especially the times I've been stuck in bed and couldn't use my desktop.

Besides, even if I'm "missing the point of Arch" by using a bunch of Flatpaks, I still get the advantage of having the latest kernel and Mesa drivers without needing PPAs.

Being a heavy Flatpak user, I've wondered recently if that was a good idea; and if I might be better served with a stable/LTS distro. But EndeavourOS has never broken on me or given me any problems (any issues I've had have always been on me). So, I don't see a need to switch distros when my current setup has been working and still works.

I've been using EndeavourOS for almost a year now. It was the first distro I installed on my desktop after I built it, and I've never distrohopped on this PC. One of the things I had in mind when I switched from Debian+Ubuntu-based systems to Arch-based was to see if running a lean core with most programs installed as Flatpaks could work.

I hate saying "I told you so"... Actually, no I love it, because it was clear from the start this thing didn't stand a chance under Google's current approach to businesses.
