Pinned toot

Non-freedom-respecting hardware should be considered broken.

My dad keeps hearing me talking about the software that I use and now he told me he wants to try Linux and Emacs (^·^)

I read the book - "We" (Russian: Мы) is a dystopian novel by Russian writer Yevgeny Zamyatin, written 1920–1921. The novel was first published as an English translation by Gregory Zilboorg in 1924. The novel describes a world of harmony and conformity within a united totalitarian state. George Orwell claimed that Aldous Huxley's 1931 Brave New World must be partly derived from We, but Huxley denied it.
Interesting book, good to know.

It's Sunday, so it's time for another walk in the park in "Your Land". That's the title of the RPG server my husband and I are currently working on in Minetest. This is a view from the city wall into the peaceful valley.

I need to write a post about the Digital Competences exam in our country.

The gist of it would be that the system is so Microsoft oriented, that I'd fail the exam. It tests your ability to describe how you do stuff on Windows and MS Office. I know GNU/Linux and Libreoffice, therefore, logically, I'm not competent.

LOL, coding existed before GitHub and we'll be just fine if it goes away.

A lot of folks are mistaking convenience for necessity.

Does GitHub making collaborative coding easier? Sure. Do we *need* GitHub for that purpose? Ha, hell nah. We have so many other options these days.

If GitHub goes away, we'll just use something else. It's just popular, not indispensable.

Damn I wish I was taught about and with Free Software in school.

"For some, open source is about making software less buggy and more robust by widening the pool of possible contributors. For others, it’s about giving users—at least the more technically skilled ones—more control over the software they use. For the most cynical, it’s a way to dupe people into working for free."

Extremely unpopular opinion among web developers I guess, but most websites should not be programs.
