Pinned toot

Hello there (yes SW fan here!)
Just joined Fosstodon and so here my (Woah 25 introduction per week! things are growing)
I'm a computer science engineer (yeah it sound pretty strange but here in Italy we have strange titles)
I mostly work with python and teach it in school and university.
I'm a doctoral student with a thesis in Gamification
In my free time, I build 3D printed and that should be all!

The problem with Medium is that it’s full of people for whom being read is more important than writing.

when I hear advocate talking about whatsapp on TV saying that it will change nothing for us thanks to GDPR (false btw) I always ask myself "Is she/he being paid to said this? by whom? whatsapp/Facebook maybe? or she/he is simply ignorant?"

@person Yeah, electron is cancer, I find it really strange that people are okay with applications nowadays running slower and poorer than they used to do on my old x386 machine, but well to each their own I guess.

1st nonsense of the year:
My colleagues called me saying that people cannot access to their account on Winshit, an error like "cannot access profile . . . chit chat chit chat"

Support said that the only way was to edit keys on HKLM to disable profile and then recreate it.

I have no experience in microshit support, but simply removing ".bak" from some "key folders" solved the issue and no one was able to explain me how the issue was generated nor why support didn't suggest it.

Here in Italy people started to share this figure claiming that this is the diagram of the 5G chip that has been inserted in the covid vaccine.

In reality it is the electric circuit of a guitar pedal and I believe that putting it in the covid vaccine has been an excellent idea💡

Dear #Mozilla, I fully agree with your message and this is why I am not giving you my money anymore. Because you are not the #Internet and I really don't like how you started speaking of yourself as such.

You make a browser. This is great. Diversity among browsers is essential and indeed keeps the Internet alive and humane. However instead of concentrating on this very important mission you are uniquely positioned to perform you changed your focus to populism while your top management pay figures go into seven digits. This I don't like as well. #Firefox needs love and attention but instead you cut developers and engage into distracting nonsense no one asked you for. You even managed to break Firefox Mobile. After your redesign it is just shadow or what it used to be.

Instead I am giving to someone else. It is David Morley who runs diasp.org - my first Diaspora pod. It is the Dr.Quadragon who runs one of the largest Russian Mastodon instances. It is Funkwhale, great free music sharing and streaming platform. It is Phillip Kulin who runs Russian Internet Censorship Registry Watch. I am not giving much but I hope this trickle helps to fuel real life of the Internet - people who create and support things.

I used to give you, Mozilla, but I am becoming more and more disappointed lately. Sorry. And again when salaries of your execs are described with words "instant inter-generational wealth" it seems to me you can do fine without my $5.
