So from what I can gather the EU made temporary legislation allowing it to monitor email and chats and it may be made permanent soon on April 15. Apparently the public can join in on the discussion. If you're an EU citizen that sounds like a debate to be a part of.
Since we were sharing our favourite fantasy quotes tonight apparently.
The Dragon Reborn, Lord of the Morning, is coming, folks. Be prepared.
The Shadow shall rise across the world, and darken every land, even to the smallest corner, and there shall be neither Light nor safety.
And he who shall be born of the Dawn, born of the Maiden, according to Prophecy,
he shall stretch forth his hands to catch the Shadow,
and the world shall scream in the pain of salvation.
All Glory be to the Creator, and to the Light, and to he who shall be born again. May the Light save us from him.
I've been saying this for years, finally someone gets it

JCenter is shutting down. Great...
What is going to be the solution to this? Move to maven central?
thedonald.win's internal drama is so fun to watch unfold.
The mod that had control of their DNS went "rogue" and so, they decided to set up a redirect to a new domain (patriots.win). Only a couple hours later thedonald.win no longer has the explanation and link to patriots.win.
I'm so curious how long the hive mind there will stick to Trump and when (or if!) they will abandon him. Especially with Trump apparently going to start his own party, should be interesting

I swear I saw a project with an NLNet "badge" in their README.md.
Cannot find it anymore, I thought it was @keyoxide but they don't and I might have doubts about my sanity
Just pushed a release, this one fixes some bugs introduced in last week's release, and overhauls the post creation process.
I am saddened by the news regarding tom79, it highlights a real problem in the fediverse. So far, our interactions with the community have been great though, so thank you for that ❤️
thedonald[.]win is only now starting to (begrudgingly) accept that Biden will be President the 20th (they don't accept he actually won though).
I wonder if they will keep the "thedonald" name, if they will try to redefine their tribe according to some other criterion than Trump, etc... What if Trump leaves the US to escape prosecution as some predict?
I have a morbid curiosity with looking around on this site, it's fascinating
Sad to see #fedilab developer (amongst other things) tom79 throw in the towel, but more than understandable.
Another victim of the Gab hysteria... This really highlights one of the things that is so terribly wrong with the fediverse.
The problem with the "private platforms can choose what they host" ( https://xkcd.com/1357/ ) argument is that the platforms in question have a monopoly, and as such should be neutral and regulated just like utilities.
Of course that's a terrible way to solve the problem, it would be much better to break them into a thousand pieces and require interoperability.
