If you don’t personally make sure you issue consequences for people who are gun nuts, whether directly in your life or online this will never ever end.

Have right-wing family, friends or even follow a YouTuber who’s into guns? Never interact with them again unless they change.

It’s literally on you, personally, to end this.

Not on any politician, not on some religious leader, it’s not someone else’s problem.

You alone can force assholes to change.

Messages like the image attached signal how crooked the system is and how there's people trying to make business out of this:

> get highly trained employees paying them half of the market price!!

I know the whole sh*t is just spam, that's why I have no sympathy for the _recruiter_, since is probably an automated persona, if not, just a racist more. Even less for the "company", KitSF - they have a .com website, but is also spam.

159 years ago Martin Luther King Jr. wrote the most important piece of the civil rights movement: Letter from Birmingham Jail

In my opinion it's a most read literature specially if you are a privileged person - as in a white man.

Look what I got in the mail today!!
Thanks @thegibson & all people on Hackers town that made this possible.

For the first time ever I'm very close to Canada. In the image you can see the Canada coast.

Proposal to rename `java.net.URL#equals` method to:
`compare_using_the_real_shit_and_internet_tubes`

so y'all know is actually very wrong..

brian.pontarelli.com/2006/12/0

My point is: yes, it is wrong and will be not fixed at all because compatibility with software created long time ago. The linked article is from 2006, that's almost 15 years ago, and the specs ate probably like that since day 1.

Also, in this case Java's URL is part.of.standard library and Oracle has $$$ to fix it.

The Framework laptop is the first laptop to ever score a 10/10 from Ifixit for repairability. But it's no thick-as-a-brick throwback the size of a 2005 Thinkpad - it's approximately the same dimensions as a MacBook.

As anticipated, people are and will be xkcd386-ing @kev because the conscious decision about Linux on desktop:

Let individuals do their thing, please.

I'm seeing a lot of toots related on where to emigrate from LastPass.
How about instead of just migrate to the new thing, start supporting the real solution away from corporate or business decision, whatever fits better for you:

bitwarden.com/pricing/

There's probably more, but those two are the ones I use, recommend and support.

Hey y'all, what are some FOSS or FOSS-adjacent projects in need of some monetary love?

I'm interested in the kinds which tend to push the boundaries, not existing giants like Wikimedia or the FSF.

Boosts welcome
