The only vegan food I can find to eat in this hospital is potato chips. FFS.

Hi hello I'm new here so I'm going to be a suck up and give you guys a picture of my cat. This is Asmodeus. Nickname is Azzy. He likes going for walks.

"It’s strange, isn’t it? The ideology of capitalism is that it is a system that generates immense abundance (so much stuff!). But in reality it is a system that relies on the constant production of scarcity.

This conundrum was first noticed back in 1804, and became known as the Lauderdale Paradox. Lauderdale pointed out that the only way to increase “private riches” (basically, GDP) was to reduce what he called “public wealth”, or the commons. To enclose things that were once free so that people have to pay in order to access them. To illustrate, he noted that colonialists would often even burn down trees that produced nuts and fruits so that local inhabitants wouldn’t be able to live off of the natural abundance of the earth, but would be forced to work for wages in order to feed themselves.

Mastodon isn't crumbling, and many blame the literal purpose of the software wherein communities take full control of their digital spaces thus making it impossible to completely shut down

Philanthropy is a symptom of systemic injustice, not a solution to it.

PS We're happy to accept applications from all over Europe, but note that management specifically require this job to be Manchester-based, so you would need to be willing to relocate. Sorry, this is not my call.

If you're disappointed from #E3 why not try Goat Simulator 2019?

O.o!!! @yunohost now has working pixelfed, mastodon, pleroma, peertube, plume, funkwhale in community downloads.

(and some things like I didn't even know I needed like firefox sync self host)

and it apparently can even install on an raspberry pi 2? (although that is probably a very bad idea for social media side of things for multiple reasons xD)

I officially have no excuse left at least to not create a pixelfed instance.

@cocoron If I find myself tempted to angrily correct folks who are being Wrong Online then I always wait a while and re-evaluate. Avoiding being in a perpetual condition of anger is praxis, even though there's a lot to get angry about.

@cris I did see what you did there 😆. I have the same kind of question, I think I'll wait for AV1 decoding to come to hardware, then maybe some chip will come out with it at a comparable pricepoint, and I can transcode my whole library to it.

I have RPi 3s on all my TVs, running Kodi. They're great, but the performance is still quite laggy on a lot of things. What's the next step up that would significantly improve performance, and not cost an ARM and a leg?* Bonus points if it's also fully open source ( i.e. no firmware blobs).

(*See what I did there? ;)
