Anyone have experience moving to another country?
I’m looking to move to one of the European countries. Don’t know how the job search will be, since I primarily speak English. I don’t know if being a recent college graduate (haven’t graduated yet, but just planning for the future) will ruin my chances too, or if I need more experience.
I am really excited to learn the culture and language! I’ve seen some amazing pictures of those countries as well, so I’m really excited if I can make the move.

So are more projects going to move from GitHub to GitLab? I’m not familiar with the legal aspect of why things are taken down on just a notice, but isn’t that an annoyance and hinderance to the developers? Like they know they are in the right, but GitHub forces them to abide by the DMCA takedown request, wasting time of legal stuff all the while not getting contributions.
This is in reference to youtube-dl vs RIAA
Youtube-dl is a legitimate tool with a world of a lawful uses. Demanding its removal from Github is a disappointing and counterproductive move by the RIAA. https://github.com/github/dmca/blob/master/2020/10/2020-10-23-RIAA.md
I remember someone saying that they were boycotting Amazon and felt bad when they accidentally did support them.
I would encourage them to watch this video: https://youtu.be/4iTcwxCQepg
I know, I know. YouTube is bad, but i don’t know of any Invidious instances that are good and fast
Ah yes. Another reminder that Microsoft is just like Facebook.
I really feel that FOSH should expand its ideals. For example, why are tech companies harming poorer countries for new hardware? Why aren’t we helping the minors in the DRC get an education instead of unlivable salary? Why aren’t we helping the Chinese factory workers get a livable wage? Shouldn’t freedom not be just for the users of said device, but also the miners, factory workers, and other people in the supply chain?
Are there circuits that have components that are not soldered on so that they can change parts on the board? Eg. change the SoC on a board. If so why don’t phone manufacturers, like Fairphone or Pinephone, use these? (I know they do a bit of modularity, but why not more?)
Kinda wish there was a modular phone. A desktop phone if you will.
So I saw on HackerNews that Clarence Thomas wanted to repeal Section 230.
Disregarding the politics, would this lead to people using Mastodon and the like? Because as I understand, Mastodon uses the same protocols with different servers for them to talk to each other, so technically no one company owns it.
Or am I misunderstanding it, and repealing Section 230 would also harm Mastodon because repealing that would apply to the code/protocol in addition to companies?
I’m sad no one laughed...
