I see a lot of people angry about the -dl takedown (rightly so). But I think a lot of that anger is misplaced towards . Legally, as a US-based company, don’t they have to follow through with DMCA takedown requests? “Legitimate” ones, at least, whatever that means? If there’s culpability in GH’s involvement here, it’s being a large, visible target and automating this process.

@IslandUsurper But, time, like I said. I also don’t know if anyone else has done this, and I have no idea what (FOSS) libraries I can use for the voice recognition. I barely know how to program a non-web GUI as it is.

@IslandUsurper It’s kind of like how playing Skyrim with the Kinect let you do dragon shouts yourself. “Fluuuute!” “Master sword!” “Fire rod!” Don’t have to take the time to click a different button while you’re playing.

Current FOSS idea that I don’t have time to do: voice-activated randomizer tracker.

started something, if English is not your native language and you've tried to raise awareness of social media risks, finding resources can be hard.
Consider translating some?


@humanetech Boosts appreciated

fans, what makes it different from Linux from a user’s perspective? I know they’re descended from different versions of Unix (I think?), but would it feel like another distribution if I installed it, or like a whole new OS?

I hate to ask, but here goes.

I'm looking for a role as a . or . Preferably where I have previous work ex from.

I've been looking a while and nothing with the right fit has come along. Work life balance is super important. If UK, happy to work completely in your timezone!

My site is rusingh.com and I'm happy to email you my CV/resume. Will start immediately once we're on the same page. 💯


We're finally live on Product Hunt (with a year and a half delay or so)! 🥳

Do share your feedback and let us know what you think please! 🙏


Tried out today. Seems nice, but I’m going to need an integrated password manager for it to become a daily driver. BitWarden CLI is a bit clunky (maybe I just need more practice)


Pay attention if you live in these areas.

Media nerds, I’ve been using Handbrake to rip movies to my server with the “Fast 1080p30” preset. Are there good reasons I should use something more nuanced?

Been trying to package Desktop for off and on recently. Got it to *start*, but it can’t read the blockchain headers file. Python gets a permission denied error... for something in ~/.local/share... Anybody come across weird problems like that?

Beep boop.

I'm Felipe. I code in Rust, I like to make games, but I never released any. When I am in a good mood, I like to make illustrations and pixel art.

Anyone who complains about compile times, I suggest you learn you a (for great good).

Thinking I might try rewriting a small Phoenix project with IHP. But I haven’t truly learned Haskell yet. Wondering if anyone here has any experience to share.

I will be playing Starbound tonight at 10 EDT. Come watch me play terribly while I figure out this streaming business. twitch.tv/islandusurper
