Three more days at work and then it's vacation time 😎 (in other words: time for all those tasks around the house that you don't have time for otherwise...)

When you correct someone on terminology, you deeply hurt your chances at winning them over to your worldview. You should be willing to sacrifice the correct words if it means you can win the correct thoughts

Regarding "open source" versus "free software"... I understand the distinction deeply, but I think being strict on the terminology weakens the free software argument. Pendantry turns people off. On the other hand, using the terms interchangably while pushing a free software philosophy does a much better job at weakening "open source". It puts the principles first and the terminology last. Principles are compelling, pendantry is not.

@enkiv2 @kungtotte @sir @neijatolf I think that this is a harmful thing - to allow keep using software that hasn’t updated for a really long time. It is, because every software have it’s security issues and just bugs, so user *has* to update the machine at least sometimes, because otherwise he will be an easy target to hack.

So that is a bad excuse to depend on deprecated technologies just because “there are old dudes who use it”

I just thought I would share how I use my Linux to play games. If you feel like it is worth the reward, then feel free to donate it to the EFF.

End of this month is the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riot, the modern western LGBTQ liberation clarion call.

For me that in combination with the Left Communist movements Queer-liberation under Kollontai during the Russian Revolution, via the Occupation of the Social Service office in Sweden, onwards through the Libertery-theologian Swedish Archbishop KG Hammar's radical support for same-sex marriage - is what made my life possible.

Our right to live is not "just a political opinion"

Sidenote: When you really REALLY feel like the middle aged fart that you are. Changed hoover bags (we didn't have any new ones before) - and the JOY the pure unadulterated joy of the hoover working well again and at full blast.... oh oh, its better than drugs :D

[at that point in my thoughts was when I realized "What has become of the 20-something I once was?" :)]

Me and my dad all set to fly the colours of the company we both work for at Stockholm Truck Meet. The lowest turnout yet for our company, we've rolled up with seven trucks in the past, but we're still representing

Reading about Antergos closing shop on reddit and realizing people on reddit are morons.
"Baaah! Fragmentation is bahd they will do what I say now instead"

This is FLOSS, there is no "fragmentation", just people doing something (like the Antergos devs) or people NOT doing something (see: "everyone on reddit")

americans: imperial is just more intuitive
also americans: how many onderdonks does this 4/0 AWG copper wire get? you can approximate it if you remember that the sixth power of the thirty-ninth root of ninety-two is nearly 2

It's kind of funny how revealing the "under UBI, nobody would HAVE to work, and so nobody WOULD work" attitude is.

> I'm unconvinced about [the local timeline's] utility as the environment grows.

I have Thoughts on this that might not fit into a toot. Short version: I agree that the local timeline gets useless for large instances. But I also think that the local timeline is *great*, and that having it pushes people (gently) to smaller instances.

…*and* I think smaller instances are way healthier as communities/better for the world than mega instances/twitter

I picked this game up during some Steam sale a while back but I never got around to playing it, just tried it out and I've been playing it non-stop for several hours. Excellent casual fun and it runs flawlessly on Linux:

I'd recommend it even at full price, and it's 75% off right now.
