Dear Linux desktop apps, you have full authorization to create a folder in my ~/.config directory, you are even invited to stuff your data in my ~/.local/share directory, and let's not forget about that ~/.cache y'all! Wunderbar! Much freedom!

So, now, please repeat after me:

👏 I 👏 SHALL 👏 NOT 👏 MAKE 👏 A 👏 FOLDER 👏 IN 👏 YOUR 👏 HOME 👏 DIRECTORY 👏

Thank you kindly

Libreture has gone Dutch! 🇳🇱

Yes, Libreture has moved to the Netherlands. Just the site, not me...

We've updated a lot of software, and made design changes, so keep an eye open and let me know if you spot any issues.

Downloads work fine, but apologies if you have problems. 👍

copilot rant 

You can treat the symptoms all you want, the problem won't go away unless you cure the root of it.

No, I'm not giving medical advice, I'm telling you to stop whining about Microsoft Github Copilot. You use MS Github, Copilot gets to read your code. You thought you got the better deal by using a MS platform, well you don't, you get screwed over like everywhere else

All you devs gave Github their power a long time ago in return for a stupid arctic badge and now the bill has come.

“Probing ‘DALL-E Mini’”: Many on social media have delighted in using the image-generation “AI” DALL-E Mini. You enter a phrase and it creates images from whole cloth based on your words.

So, I wanted to see what kinds of biases were learned in its training. Here are the unmodified results for the following queries.

Between 1999 and 2014, the percentage who imagine the Sun revolves around the Earth *went up*.

In this kind of world, time I spend on politics increasingly feels like a mistake. Drowning in the tide of imbeciles, we nod to sermons from the flotsam.

Yeah so it's clickbait then, innit?

First-ever Gitea pull request from a remote instance!!! 🎉🥳

git.exozy.me/Ta180m/Hello-worl

I've been waiting for this moment for months now!

The code hasn't been pushed to gitea.com/Ta180m/gitea yet since it's incredibly messy, but I'll clean it up tomorrow and also submit a draft pull request to upstream Gitea.

(Technical implementation information: gitea.com/Ta180m/gitea/issues/)

I need a fediverse bot showing all the images!

While #GitHub #Copilot doesn't violate free #software licences (see ⬆️), there are plenty of reasons to #GiveUpGithub anyway. Here are a few:

1. Since we're #FOSS developers, our tools should be #FreeSoftware too.
2. Monopolies are never a good idea.
3. By using a walled garden, we're excluding potential contributors.
4. By using #Microsoft products, we're supporting a producer of #tracking malware and an #NSA collaborator.

Instead, we should switch to #Git platforms running @gitea, such as @codeberg. Also, @dachary and others are already working hard on #forge federation in the @forgefriends project.

Come to think of it, I want to be better than . And therefore, so should the apps. What if @Tusky and @fedilab@toot.fedilab.app had anti-addictive behavior features like optional pagination: people could turn it on, decide to read one or two pages and then go to sleep for example. Endless scrolling makes this difficult and fuels addiction.

nerdy request regarding csgo 

Today, showed the world a new nerdy Dust2 hinge smoke from pit.

This made me look for the original clip (with the caster's reaction!) of his hinge smoke from T spawn, about a year ago? Maybe two?

But for the life of me, I can't find it. Not on YT, not on twitch, not on reddit…

A link to any walled garden will do, I will ytdl it so I can't lose it again! Hoping you have better searching skills than I do 🙏 thx!

One moment, I feel half burned out. The next, I have inspiration for three side projects to which I immediately want to dedicate time.

This is where one needs to be careful because these two states are linked and not in the direction you want them to be.

I feel like making a side project to call out the pieces of software that do this unrespectful shit.
