If you're feeling sleepy or fatigued, try washing your face with a warm towel. It can be refreshing.

@hakanohi Gitlab.com is hosted at Google Cloud. And while they have an open source community version of Gitlab, a large part of Gitlab is "enterprise" and proprietary software.

I would advise you to consider something's that's libre software like Gitea. It's self-hosted, but there's at least two popular non-profit websites who offers free hosting.

* nixnet.services
* snopyta.org

NixNet is run by @amolith.

People say free software community is divided into two. So, in which one do you belong?

a) I hate Mac, but I really really hate Windows.

b) I hate Windows, but I really really hate Mac

Mozilla take 

Mozilla should stop trying to be like every tech shit company out there and re-structure itself into a worker-owned cooperative.

Okay people, we've seen #Mozilla degrade more and more for years, and we've always hoped it will find its way and get better.

Now people working on Developer Tools, #MDN, and the Rust team - arguably some of the most useful and valuable teams at Mozilla - have been laid off, to make space for more profit making activities.

This is utter bullshit.

But perhaps this is also an opportunity. The FLOSS community forked OpenOffice, XFree86, and other huge projects.

"Isn’t it funny how RMS gets ousted for his comments, yet Gates who met with Epstein countless times and was surrounded by Epstein cohorts gets a pass? Then COVID came around and he tried to play himself off as Captain Planet, probably was a desperate attempt to distract from the Epstein thing." #techrights reader

A really great article about how Richard wrongly accused of things he didn't do/or say and overall cancel culture.

This post is written by Hannah Wolfman-Jones but includes a response from civil-rights expert Nadine Strossen, former president of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).

getting words in foreign languages you don’t know tattooed is really weird

like imagine going to that country. “why does this person have ‘potato’ tattooed on their arm?”

If any Emacs users on Archlinux or other rolling release distros are scratching their head trying to figure out why Emacs suddenly crashes after updating the system, this may have something to do with libx11 and Xim.
See the discussion here:
bugs.archlinux.org/task/67461
gitlab.freedesktop.org/xorg/li
And here is the patch:
gitlab.freedesktop.org/xorg/li
For Arch user, you can now upgrade your libx11 to 1.6.10-2 now to fix the issue.
