I'm trying to cope with the situation that even though I'm in a high risk group of getting a severe COVID-19 if I get infected I'll probably won't get the vaccine until summer as things here in Spain are pretty slow.


I'm resigning from High Priority Projects committee and my position as chair, due to the surprise reinstatement of RMS to the FSF board. My talks last weekend for #LibrePlanet2021 were before I (or anyone?) had knowledge of this. I must act in solidarity with women and marginalized voices.

Kudos to #Outreachy for its integrity in publicly banning #FSF and affiliated projects from participation in the program due to the reinstatement of Richard #Stallman to its Board of Directors.

Also I decided to move my support to the @conservancy It took me a while but I think they are doing a far better job at promoting and protecting software freedom.

rms and fsf 

After the recent events (FSF reinstating rms in the board of directors), I decided to stop supporting the FSF. I wanted to believe that they moved on from the personality-cult mentality but some things (as in people) never change I fear...

The worst part about RMS being back on the board of the FSF (from my perspective, YMMV) is that this submarine bullshit of "hey, guess who's back" undermines the very foundation of trust and openness that the FSF is supposed to foster.

"Don't trust corporations with your private data or they'll do bad things with it" rings fucking hollow when "trust us to be above board with our openness" is met with an end-run announcement that someone who has lost trust is back on the board.

As the year comes to a close, I wanted to take a moment to extend my appreciation to all of you for the good times and laughs, throughout 2020. She's been a hell of a year but, we made it. From loved ones lost to great successes, this year has been a wild roller coaster of a ride. Whether you're working or enjoying it with loved ones, I hope all of you enjoy bringing in the new year and do so, safely.

Thanks, again, for making Fosstodon such a fun atmosphere and great community.

Thanks a lot to @kev and @mike for creating this space, @cooper for managing us, @joseph @codesections @Gina for taking care of the rest.

Thanks to all fellow users at this instance out there.

You all made my first experience with the fediverse a great and pleasant adventure.

Greetings to all my followers, if I only knew what caused you to do that. 🤔

Happy New year, glad to meet you all here!

I hate to ask, but here goes.

I'm looking for a role as a . or . Preferably where I have previous work ex from.

I've been looking a while and nothing with the right fit has come along. Work life balance is super important. If UK, happy to work completely in your timezone!

My site is and I'm happy to email you my CV/resume. Will start immediately once we're on the same page. 💯


All systems are up. Another server got a nice upgrade and now it's rocking 96GB of RAM. Hopefully it will help jitsi perform a bit better (though we still need to tweak the settings there). Apart form that all servers have been nicely upgraded and power cycled.

I can honestly say that the world was a better place before Facebook existed.


That's ESR joining a "complain" about the oficial golang site showing a "Black Lives Matter" banner.

If anyone tries to defend this asshole at this point, it will just show it is also an asshole.

#nobot should not even be necessary. No bots should ever follow or even interact with anyone unless explicitly requested by that person. I block any that do so.
