We all know that Google (with Chrome-ium) has at least close to 90% of the browser marketshare on the internet.

Which is your primary browser on your computer?

Remember that Brave, Opera and Edge are Chromium derivatives. I consider Safari to be separate since it's Webkit and not Blink.

Retoot this to get more votes in.

Neofeud is a game about my experiences growing up in Hawaii's ghetto, being a social worker & STEM teacher for poor, homeless, refugees, mostly non-white kids in slums of Hawaii the tour buses avoid, while living out of a van. 100% of sales go to putting a roof over my kids' head (we're getting kicked out of our house at the end of the month)

In light of the recent events on this instance and the way I've seen everyone act (so far) in response to it, I've decided to double my Patreon contribution to show my support for the instance and the people that run it and try their best to make it a nice corner of the Fediverse.

And I think it has always been, and still is, a very nice corner of the Fediverse. People behave well enough here that we don't even *need* a CoC.

So thanks Kev, Mike, and the moderator team for the job you do here.

15 years ago, EFF's @doctorow told Microsoft:

1. That DRM systems don't work

2. That DRM systems are bad for society

3. That DRM systems are bad for business

4. That DRM systems are bad for artists

5. That DRM is a bad business-move

He was right.

devs are asking for feedback on what to do in the future with Gitea. It's become feature-complete enough for the team to actually use Gitea in-house and they're looking towards the horizon.

Contribute your suggestions here:

They haven't fully made the move yet, but this is preparations for the future.

Evgeny Morozov: « Socialize the Data Centres ! » (an oldie that I've found only now, but which is still terribly relevant. Surprising, right?)

Yesterday I checked (with NoScript) the websites of the EU parties coalitions. Might this be an element to choose whom to vote? 😉
