#Superwahljahr2021

Germany: Merkel's Christian Democrats (CDU) last to announce agenda for 2021 elections

They certainly took their time, but on June 21, the two chairmen of the sister parties CDU and CSU announced the party platform on which the Union is running under chancellor candidate Armin Laschet. The agenda doesn’t fail to dissapoint. A quick analysis.

I recently installed Peppermint OS on a USB drive. It runs really fast! It's nice that I can take it with me plug it into any computer and just pick up where I left off... without the need to actually carry any hardware around! So far I tested it on my office HP desktop, my ZenBook and my old Surface Pro 2 and it even boots on my MacBook (!) - no issues.
what are some other good portable linux distros out there?

so I just got a Clubhouse invite from a friend of mine and I managed to join up without owning an iPhone using a Clubhouse client that runs on Docker (thus avoiding some privacy issues outlined in my post, but I may eventually get banned :-) )

As of this moment, I am having difficulty finding any actual content that interests me... We'll see how this works out

So, after using Nextcloud for a while and disliking the archival format, my wife wants me to set up something like Mastodon, but just for family communication.

Is it possible to make a private, invitation-only instance that doesn't interoperate with the rest of the world?

Also, is one of the alternative Fedi systems (Plemora, Friendica, etc.) better for this?

We have a decent number of barely computer literate family members across a wide variety of different devices.

The week in German COVID-19 politics 

This week’s inconsistent pandemic management and communications chaos makes priorities of Merkel government painfully obvious. Interests of commerce and employers take precedence over pandemic control.

First impressions of Lemmy are pretty good. The biggest issue right now is the overabundance of tech/FOSS communities but that can easily change as the platform grows. I've written more detailed thoughts below.

Hello dear academic journal or publisher,

if you wish to spam us about diversity, equality, and similar,

maybe adopt full open access first so people you want to be inclusive of can afford to read the science without other people risking their lives for us to gain access to it.

Yours truly,

aaaah finally solved auto-switching between light and dark mode on my Jekyll site based on user preference using the default "Minima" theme. Was not easy at all, since the theme doesn't include this functionality by default and is very picky about rendering css stylesheets. And there was no help to be found in forums or tutorials. Again, I learned a lot.
