borde kanske skrivit detta innan jag flyttade över, men jag ville bara tacka @Linuxkompis och alla medlemmar på den för tiden som varit på instansen 👌

Any good linux/foss news/history podcasts out there? It would be neat to get up to speed on this stuff while I'm doing meal prep and housework.

I learned yesterday thanks to the good folks at #qutebrowser on Freenode that private mode blocks access to any cookies and data stored in the regular session. I have always thought that it only prevented new data from being saved. :|

I've been using Firefox as a secondary web browser for years for websites that I don't want to access my data and for them to store new data..

I feel so stupid right now, but I'm also happy that I can finally use qutebrowser for everything!

Also, can we make a point of always calling it Microsoft #GitHub from now on please? Thanks.

I refuse to consume content from someone that want to kill antifascists, someone that got wallpapers of nazi symbols or someone that uses and promotes gab. where are all the good linux/floss content creators?

Finally got my butt off of #GitHub (2 years, after #Microsoft bought it?) and moved my code to @codeberg.

While not a requirement – for me –, it's nice knowing that the backing organization is one dedicated to open-source and one you can individually get involved in and help with.

Especially with recent events, this was long overdue for me to do.

For the past year I've been doing independent software research, funded by an Open Tech Fund grant. This summer the Trump administration de-funded the OTF, cutting off my income.

I've been living off my savings since then, and while I'm looking for alternative funding sources, applying and getting that money will take time and so in the meantime, if you can, please support my work via GitHub sponsors: github.com/sponsors/spacekooki, or Liberapay: liberapay.com/spacekookie/.

Thanks! Boosts appreciated.

Good on the EU Parliament!

"The European Parliament rejected a proposal to ban terms such as “burger” and “sausage” to describe plant-based food. Europe’s farming lobby had claimed that using meat-like names could confuse consumers".

@arh @ashimokawa @shom @af
We are preparing a posting to clarify our position with respect to the #youtubedl issue. Please join codeberg.org/Codeberg/Communit with questions or comments to discuss.

@arh @ashimokawa @shom @af If we get "asked" by official German authority, a court, we of course have to adhere to the order. However, this is not happening just by some letter from some individual or corporation.

This is the difference to the US DMCA takedown process, where any individual or company can issue a takedown request with immediate effect, and then the burden of proof is on the side of the project.

So I wonder how will handle this - are they going to include this software in future releases?

If you still use GitHub as your main place to host your projects, reconsider.

Git is made to be decentralized.

Use it.

Det är så vackert så man blir nästan lite tårögd. Den politiska enigheten. Helt käbbelfritt.

KeepassXC 2.6.2 Released with 'Always on Top' option

In , you can make any program's window to be on top or bottom. For example I've made to open at desktop 3 and always be at the bottom.

"We moved to GitHub because everyone's already there"

"We shut down the mailing lists because most of our users prefer to use GitLab in their web browser"

"We're rewriting in Rust because we don't really have any non-x86_64 users"

"We're leaving IRC because Discord is more user-friendly"

What all of these arguments have in common is that they exclude people, centralize infrastructure, and eschew free software for proprietary solutions, all in the name of some ill-defined measure of "progress".
