I am sad () due to the incident of a high school student falling down from the school building while the school/government concealing the cause.

Which government can be even worse than Chengdu?!

I finally completed and published my little pixel art RPG pack on Itch!

polygonix.itch.io/16-fantasy-p

It *looks* like 16 little graphics, but to me it’s representative of losing use of my hands, being unsure what I could regain, and clawing back abilities over the past year.

I changed my Itch name form Freed Creative to Polygonix because I’m not in a position to use only FOSS anymore. Started these in Gimp and finished them in Pixaki.

So pleased to have bought this little project to fruition. 😀

As I understand it, Lineage doesn't check the ROMS?
I've been using the official ROMS for years, but now it looks like there aren't any for the devices I like. The developers can add their "versions" to the repository and something or someone called "Gerry" checks it. Does anyone here know more? This means to me that the unofficial ones are not less secure than the official ones.

I wonder if an RJ45 connector exists where the clip thingy doesn't fall off as soon as I get within 5 metres of it

@Linux4Everyone Someone on the timeline compared FOSS to veganism a while back and I think that's actually a decent metaphor. Some vegans are annoying and judgmental towards other people but a lot of them aren't. Meanwhile I'm just trying to cut down on some of the junk in my life, but will still enjoy burgers and use Vivaldi.

The 100% FOSS advocacy is great and letting people know about alternatives is important, as long as people aren't being rude about it.

Be excellent to each other! 🙂

respecting the user, Mozilla, - 

> By modifying this file, I agree that I am doing so only within Firefox itself, using official, user-driven search engine selection processes, and in a way which does not circumvent user consent. I acknowledge that any attempt to change this file from outside of Firefox is a malicious act, and will be responded to accordingly.

.hg Fuck. /Listen./ This is /our box./ It's a single-user OS; nocreature else will be affected by this. /We're just trying to change it for ourself./

At this point, you're infringing upon our right to configure our machine the way we want to. In order to comply, we would have to manually change the search engine using the Firefox preferences GUI every time we spun up a dispvm. That's ridiculous.

So my twitter account got suspended permanently because i didnt add a phone number to it in time.

I hate twitter but nobody i want to follow is on the fediverse. But also my accounts keep getting banned because I don't add a phone number to them.
