So I stopped writing on my blog for quite a while now and I think I should say why:

I got bored. I was writing for the sake of writing at that point and I was putting out things that just were not polished enough. I wasn't proud of what I was writing, I just didn't find any passion in what I was writing.

I wasn't getting the same enjoyment. Even though it was my opinion, it was forced.

I'll probably get back to it soon, but expect more creative writing instead of lots of opinion.

This is the PineTime. A companion for your Linux smartphone, and new side-project of ours. More news coming in the future...

For those who believe there's nothing like the Intel ME on the Red side, you're sorely mistaken. In fact, we know even less about AMD's Intel ME counterpart called the Platform Security Processor. It's a separate ARM process running proprietary code.

Would you replace your existing internet provider with a community-based ISP, assuming that you'd (at the very least) keep the same speed? If so/not, why?

Some of you idolize this guy and yeah, he's done some pretty fucking remarkable work. But some of the work is thanks to the attention he's garnered and some of that attention has been garnered thanks to comments and opinions like this.

I'm not okay with that and I think that we should not be hoisting this guy to the top as a "symbol" for Free Software. The idea is bigger than him.

"The reference reports the claim that Minsky had sex with one of Epstein’s harem…Let’s presume that was true (I see no reason to disbelieve it).

"We can imagine many scenarios, but the most plausible scenario is that she presented herself to him as entirely willing." - RMS in reference to the Epstein child sex trafficking case

RMS' "Pleasure" card. He describes it as a replacement for a business card. Fucking creepy.
