Never have I been more gleeful, reading the lawsuit against Google. I'm 7 pages in, and they're already capturing so many things wrong with Google. I love it, I really love it.

Official gov site outlining it: justice.gov/opa/pr/justice-dep

The actual 64 page claim: justice.gov/opa/press-release/

Excuse my language, but do you see this bullshit? Aaron Swartz was a hero and now they're pretending like he doesn't exist. Reddit, I thought you were dead to me before, but now I can truly see how disgusting you are.

Hello, I'm Phate6660. I also go by valley, phate, and Valley6660.

I'm a Linux enthusiast who programs for fun, and I'm also a privacy activist (to a fault really).

I also watch quite a lot of anime.

You can find me here (obviously), Github/Codeberg/sourcehut, Discord, Lobste.rs, and the ZDoom forums.

I thought I was going to have to back up my data for like 6-8 days all over again and copy it over to a new filesystem. I am SO GLAD that I don't have to do that. 😅

Jeez that was scary.

Out of nowhere I wasn't able to mount my external hard drive.

It took me a while, but after looking through various logs and looking up various problems for it, it turned out that for some odd reason the partition had a duplicate UUID.

I have to thank xfs_admin. It generated a new UUID in no time and afterwards I could mount it again like normal. I haven't done a thorough check but it seems like all the data is intact too.

I would be lying if I said I haven't had trouble learning CPP, but I find it growing on me more and more. This fetch program is getting coded faster than I thought it would.

Got my mom and sister moved to Signal today. 2 down, 1 to go, then I'm ready to ditch WhatsApp 😁

Hm. I am already on Artix and looks like I should give Gentoo a try - beta.distrochooser.de/en/2f69b

@LinuxLounge Short answer without watching the video. "YES". systemd is a fucking monopoly.

I can't be more happy about Assange!!! 🎉 So sad no one will pay all the damage USA did to him.

Unpopular opinion: rust-analyzer isn't very good (at least currently) and should not be used as a replacement for rls anytime soon.

@Phate6660 It's moreso about me not realizing that you can get a certificate for free. I thought that getting involved with a CA would cost money, and I want to minimize the costs since this is just a small hobby project of mine.

I get the need for HTTPS, though (I use HTTPS Everywhere, after all), so when the opportunity appeared in the form of your toot, there was no reason not to go through with it.

Unbelievable! my WiFi was fine right when I start to torrent my ISP just say "Oh! we cant have that can we! (limits my bandwidth)" literally only for 2 sec and I have not torrented for 2 months! just fucking why?! I fucking hate ISP and the bullshit unfair control of the world especially at a time when we depend on them the most! 😠 We need to have a open source ISP where there main motto is to make it as privacy respectful and secure

OS: Gentoo (with aggressive compiler options along with LTO, PGO, and Graphite)

Terminal: XTerm (the best term, fight me)

Font: Misc Fixed (my most absolute favorite font, I will never give it up (LOOKING AT YOU PANGO!))

Programs running: rsfetch, neofetch, and emerge (running --info)

Super happy with XFS on my external hard drive, I think I might try using it as my root filesystem next time I install a distro.

There should be an ACK feature next to the "favorite" button on the fediverse. I often just star a comment to express that I've acknowledged it.

Screw it. I'll just use graphical links. For Mastodon I'll use toot, I have a CLI for Lobsters, and I rarely use the web interface for Github anyways.
