Schon von Microsoft 365 "Workplace Analytics" gehört?
Microsoft hilft Firmen jetzt dabei seine Mitarbeiter illegal auszuspionieren.
Zum Glück kann ich dafür sorgen, dass das in unserem Laden deaktiviert bleibt.
Also wir nicht an die Daten rankommen. Aber M$ hat die Daten ja dennoch...
Eigentlich sollte man sich weigern closed-source zu benutzen. Aber was wenn man dazu gezwungen ist? Man damit sein Geld verdient?
Ich habe langsam echt die Nase voll von all dem Bullshit.
In today's November Blog Update:
- RK3566 announced as one of our next generation platforms
- #PinebookPro Docking Deck
- #Pinecil on sale within the next month
- Enough other announcements to write a novel about... luckily Lukasz already did that for me. :)
This is a good write-up of the #youtubedl situation that should be accessible to non-techies:
If you need something to link your friends, family, or political representative to so that they can understand how absolutely preposterous and harmful the youtube-dl takedown is, this is a good link to have at hand.
CCC might need somebody to setup their Peertube instance : are-you interested ?
"We moved to GitHub because everyone's already there"
"We shut down the mailing lists because most of our users prefer to use GitLab in their web browser"
"We're rewriting in Rust because we don't really have any non-x86_64 users"
"We're leaving IRC because Discord is more user-friendly"

📺🧰 youtube-dl (downloader of videos from YouTube and other sites) is down, threaten by #RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America):
Youtube-dl is a legitimate tool with a world of a lawful uses. Demanding its removal from Github is a disappointing and counterproductive move by the RIAA. https://github.com/github/dmca/blob/master/2020/10/2020-10-23-RIAA.md
When the Napster Wars began, the RIAA represented the Big Six record labels. Today, it represents the Big THREE labels, as an entire realm of human endeavor stretching back to a time before language itself is now the near-exclusive purview of three giant corporations.
They are tightening the noose. Yesterday, the RIAA sent a DMCA 1201 takedown notice to Github demanding the removal of youtube-dl, a venerable and popular tool for format-shifting Youtube videos.
In 1998, Bill Clinton signed the Digital Millennium Copyright Act into law. At the time, most of the attention was on Section 512 - AKA "notice and takedown," which absolves platforms from liability for users' infringement provided they respond quickly to removal demands.
Over the years, this has been horrifically abused, with everyone from post-Soviet dictators to sexual predators to cults and literal Nazis using spurious copyright claims to censor their critics, often without consequence.

I saved my template as "~/.vim/html.skel" and put the following line into my ".vimrc":
au BufNewFile *.html 0r ~/.vim/html.skel | let IndentStyle = "html"
The autocmd reads the template file into the buffer of my new .html file and the "0" positions the insertion to line zero and the "r" instructs vim to read the contents of the file at the insertion location.
