Apparently @Liberapay started taking SEPA payments in February. Does anyone know how this works? Does it go through Stripe, what are the fees?

I might make an account now, I didn't know this happened! Great news in any case.

For a desktop application, would there be any reason not to use AGPL? Conversely, would there be any reason to use it over GPLv3+?

hahaha I just toot that and 10 seconds later I get a notification from Sonarr saying it started downloading the season

Stranger things coming out in a couple of minutes according to Sonarr. I'm really curious if the Microsoft thing has anything to do with it, more than anything 😆

So, Larry Sanger is actually on Mastodon: @lsanger

Pretty cool, although the "social media strike" thing still doesn't make sense to me.

I'm calling a social media strike for July 4-5: larrysanger.org/2019/06/social

I know many here have already abandoned the likes of Facebook and Twitter. But if you're still there...announce that you're on strike (repeatedly?) on those days, in protest of these companies' abusive policies, and if you like, share this Declaration of Digital Independence: larrysanger.org/2019/06/declar

Corporations might match up with your morality now, but if (when!) they change their mind, we lose freedom. We need to reject the proprietary silos and solve this problem: get your favourite small youtuber to also upload to a PeerTube instance, stop helping the perverse system of advertising by installing an adblocker, ...

@poetgrant you're reading WoT?? that's pretty rad, where're you at? It's my favourite series ever.

Did you start reading because of the incoming threat of a TV show 😆 ?

What's MS up to now? Big mystery about some Windows 1.01 stuff or whatever. Maybe a Stranger things tie-in? or are they freeing the source of Windows 1.0? arstechnica.com/?p=1531001

is a and way to share files.

OnionShare uses onion services to transfer files across the network. Onion services are untraceable and end to end encrypted. Since files to be shared are hosted by the sharer there is no limit on filesize. OnionShare is great for sharing sensitive information without having a cloud platform spying on the data or the transfer.

Interesting thoughts about snap and how it might be dangerous

Apparently Canonical is replacing the chromium package with a pointer to the chromium snap???

"as you install APT updates, Snap becomes a requirement for you to continue to use Chromium and installs itself behind your back. This breaks one of the major worries many people had when Snap was announced and a promise from its developers that it would never replace APT"

Wow. That's pretty bad...

Apparently LineageOS has vim and nano installed, you can use it with the terminal app that you can enable in the developer settings. They updated it recently

They also have a patreon now, which is OK I guess

They still don't have acceptable wording anywhere, and would still rather bundle google play if that were legal... So not my favourite project ever, but they're the only choice there is, and still mostly FOSS

Blackadder season 5??? Oh yes, a cunning plan indeed!

Atkinson was so very good in this role, and all the others as well (the queen in season 2 was particularly good, delightful to watch how she played the madness)

Well that's one way for a young lad to lose his innocence!

Teaching Python to son and friends.

Son: Am I stuck with Xed the whole time? What are you using Dad?

Me: Well, I'm using Emacs. You could use Emacs but it's a bit complicated.

Son: Complicated? How complicated can a text editor possibly be?

HK protesters seizing their Legislative body, raising the HK colonial flag, drafting a document requiring universal suffrage, hinting at overthrowing the "puppet government"...

Revolution in the air! Let's hope it doesn't end up in Tienanmen 2.0, but with freedom for all HKers! ✊ 🇬🇧 ✊

Apparently Netflix made a book with a side story for chief Hopper, in New York in the 70s

Put it on my list, but I don't know what I think about that

Legion (the FX series) is just... amazing. It's art. And apparently the third (and last) season is good all the way through (according to the critics), so I think this is going to live on my media server for a looong time, and I'll probably rewatch it a couple of times
