Je kiffe mon employeur : on utilise un logiciel libre et gratuit en remplacement d'un matériel tombé en panne, et il est d'accord de faire un don pour remercier l'auteur 😀

Coucou masto,
J'ai un périphérique avec un linux dessus qui génère de gros fichiers. J'aimerai écrire ces fichiers dans un dossier qui serait le disque dur d'un autre PC sur le réseau local, monté pour l'occasion.

Que me conseillez vous ? J'ai jamais fait, ça doit être opérationnel demain. Le périphérique (rpi) "client" est sous debian (kernel custom dans un boitier, aucun port accessible), l'ordinateur "serveur" est un portable sous mageia.

Si aucune idée, tu peux repouéter ;)

screwed up its password manager.

Every installed password manager (worldwide) will create the same password at a given second. This makes the pw's highly guessable.

Wouldn't it be great if the source code of critical software like PW-managers could be made public to make it possible for everybody out there to check its integrity? Maybe we could call this... "public code" .. or... wait... "open source"?

Half joking, github 

People seem mad that Microsoft has trained their algorithm on GPL code. Instead, we should be focusing on opportunity: if machine learning can ignore software licenses, all of Microsoft's proprietary software is fair game. It is not reverse-engineering, it is machine learning!

If Microsoft is teaching how to launder copyright, we should be grateful...

Bravo au commissaire aspirant Hugo Mitifiot pour cette réplique aussi cinglante que juste au navrant et ridicule #GabrielAttal, trop parfait représentant de l'Etat-#Macron...

#Debian created an ecosystem where the software available there is reviewed and trusted, so the system can prioritize flexibility over security. In #Google Play, there are many apps we feel forced to use, despite knowing they are unethical or are tracking us. Google responds by locking down #Android to reduce data leaks, which also reduces the system's flexibility. #FreeSoftware puts the user in control so we can build user-friendly systems without being forced into bad decisions.

This is something that I didn't imagined. Using TPM + Secure Boot as a DRM thing

Reject modernity and return to piracy

Mais comment peut-on dire « totalement décarboné » ?
Si on prend en compte la construction d’une éolienne, pourquoi on ne prend pas en compte les éééénormes chantiers du nucléaire et le coût environnemental ?
Le coût environnemental de leur démolition en fin de vie ?
Le coût environnemental de l’extraction et la fabrication des combustibles ?
