15 years ago, EFF's @doctorow told Microsoft:
1. That DRM systems don't work
2. That DRM systems are bad for society
3. That DRM systems are bad for business
4. That DRM systems are bad for artists
5. That DRM is a bad business-move
He was right.
Changed the icon and GTK theme since last #ScreenshotSunday
Sometimes, the moonlight will:
- draw a footpath on the water. If you walk it, it will cut you. Dance.
- forge a sword on the rocks. If you can pick it up, you'll know what to do.
- leave a ribbon for your lover's hair. If you tie it on, they can untie it.
- simply shine. On you.

This is my first #ScreenshotSunday
How is it?
When designing a system, always assume that it will be attacked by intelligent malicious actors with significant resources. This will almost automatically protect you also from low-intelligence attackers, low-resource attackers, and adverse environmental conditions. For example, an attacker may be able to crash a database server. If you design to protect against this, you will also be protected from a power outage or OS bug that crashes that server.
Did anyone else just lose all of their Firefox addons and themes? Here is an image of my about:addons page in the new "Unsupported" section:

The largest problem with #LibremOne is you are trusting one entity with *all* of your data. Compartmentalization is necessary for online privacy, and with Librem One, you do the opposite. It’s definitely a great start, but I will continue to self-host and compartmentalize.

"don't use Discord! they are an evil proprietary service"
"okay. what do you propose instead?"
"ummmmmmmmmmmmm matrix? or irc"
"come on those are all just as good!"
"they are not. that is the point."
"so what, we should all use Discord then?"
"no - we should stop saying that what we have is good enough, and make something better."
@Matter @mooshoe Why does Mozilla need to be ideologically pure with regard to the development process? They're going to use the tools that suit them. Millions of Linux users install proprietary binary blobs to get basic processor, GPU, or Wifi functionality. They install non-free software like games and use Google services like crazy. The point I'm trying to make is: It's not the end of the world and it's not going to herald the downfall of Mozilla/OSS.
