My take on free software projects and chatrooms:
I'm fine with Discord as long as it's bridged to Matrix. Like it or not, people already use Discord and it lowers the barrier to entry for participating in a community.
But if proprietary services are the *only* way to join a conversation about free software, yeah, that's not good.
@alexbuzzbee Each trilogy has its own distinct style. If you're expecting the new trilogy to be like the other two, you'll be disappointed.
I like the new movies, though. They feel new and different, which I think is why some people love them and some people hate them.
@ataraxia937 Definitely. I feel like a phone screen just can't display as much information at once as a human can interpret. Also, typing a lot on a phone isn't comfortable.
@rudolf I wish we would all just use ISO 8601.
@DelusionalAI Huh, that's a shame. Guess I'll return it and get a regular lightbulb for now.
@joelghill I started using DuckDuckGo because of their privacy stance, but the main reason I'll never go back is dark mode.
I also love bangs (I use !w a lot), and they have better Instant Answers for programming stuff.
@nwarburton I wouldn't mind GLaDOS though. Just make sure the neurotoxin permissions are set to 'Deny'.
Kids been naughty this year but you can't figure out where to buy coal? Give them toilet paper instead!
- It's not as heavy
- It isn't messy
- Like coal once was, it's not completely useless but also not very fun to get as a gift
@amanajayvarma Several big FOSS projects use it (GNOME and KDE, for example, have their own GitLab instances), so it's nice to use the same software for personal projects.
