.@Blender's videos on #YouTube have now come back, but they are also being told by Google/YT that they HAVE to monetise them. #Blender are considering refusing, which presumably would mean the videos being taken down again:


Whatever they once stood for, #Google's aim now is exploiting their users' content for maximum profit.

If you don't want your videos to be exploited, it is important to switch to an independent alternative:

I guess I couldn't just write about Quilter 1.6.0, could I? I've went and wrote a new shiny app, a PDF viewer. Meet Aesop, I'm sure it'll accompany your PDF reading needs for when you just want to read PDFs or hot reload that LaTeX file you're typing without any of that fussing on configurations.

I know u said I wasn't going to be on Mastodon much, but I was wondering, do you think @pixelfed and Mastodon will be integrated?

This is a really interesting set of articles about 'Unix as an IDE'

Awesome restaurant in the center of one of America's former industrial towns!

Testers needed!

The script:

Which thinkpad should I get... I want to keep it under 100$ US, but there are so many I don't know which one. I don't want a tablet laptop... Just a plain laptop. X1 carbon looks nice, but they are all over my budget.

The Linux Disadvantage: It does exactly what you tell it to

For this Father's Day:

He is a preacher with a keen and cutting approach to his own philosophy on life. He relies on Christian teachings for a basis, he is still a pragmatist. He taught me to think freely without inhibition to the use of reason. Reason is king in his world. He taught me practical life skills and he encouraged my individuality in a way no one else has. He taught me compassion and seeing the other side of the coin.
