So apparently I'm banned from github.com/golang/go 

I reviewed my comments to find out what might have caused it and my best guess is it's either because (A) I said that it's lazy to force git forge maintainers to add go-specific code rather than develop language-independent standards, or (B) I pointed out that git hosting is decentralized and adding "sourcehut support" by hardcoding git.sr.ht is incorrect, and applies to other hosts like gitlab, gitea, github enterprise, cgit, etc.

Notably among my participation in that repository is donating CPU time on my $1,000 RISC-V board to help with the RISC-V port.

In conclusion, 🖕. If you want to participate in golang/go be sure not to point out that any of their engineers are working on solutions which are wrong when the right solution is much harder.

Fyi I have started a mailing list on sr.ht for people to discuss tabletop rpg design.

Its going to be a fairly quiet place I think be it has the power to be useful and meaningful to a small group of designers interested in collaboration and discussing rpg as a concept.

Finished setting up my gopherspace and a http "mirror" of it. Feels good.

It's what the Dutch call "mustard after the meal", but here's my not very original statement.

Stop. Using. Github.

It can only hurt your project.

If your project relies on discoverability only the codehoster can provide, you're doing something wrong.

You inflate their importance by hosting your code with them and you allow this shit to happen. Don't.

Hey guys just FYI: old != bad

Just in case that didn't sink in: JUST BECAUSE SOMETHING IS "OLD" DOES NOT MEAN IT'S FUCKING BAD

Google banned LBRY Android from the Playstore without warning and for contrived reasons.

This video details their exact communications, reasoning, and hypocrisy.

We believe we are being targeted due to big creators fleeing YouTube for LBRY.

Playing around with USB raw gadget in linux, it's all uncharted territory for me.

Senior year student here, was browsing Gophernet this morning, ended up making an account here. Life's interesting, ain't it?
