How do you save tasty ? I dislike how third party spyware infested and bloated most recipe sites are (even with script blockers). I can not be the only one that does this, but I started to save recipes I like in and push it to my GitLab: gitlab.com/rickylinden/recipes

As I'm interested in both #programming and #journalism, I find the organisation #J++ very interesting: jplusplus.org/en/

Another project finished for a client using only as in software. One of the best decisions I did ~two years ago was ditching and my and instead learning to use and . It's been amazing!

Just got a really comfy setup made where I can edit my entries offline, use and auto generate an rickylinden.com/blogindex.html thanks to Luke's Blog Script: github.com/LukeSmithxyz/lb

Some bad news for folks who are fans of #uMatrix. It's being archived and no longer being developed :
github.com/uBlockOrigin/uMatri

Can't say I didn't see this coming since maintaining a plugin, particularly as an open source project, is often a thankless job with many personal down sides

I hope it can still continue, if not as uMatrix, then as something else. I really don't like to fiddle with uBlock Origin to get the same functionality

So happy I gave up on music a few years ago. and locally stored files is king.

Good to know in case I would ever need Windows 10 with an internet connection, but oh my if there are some hoops to jump through...

@ubuntustudio Installed Ubuntu Studio Groovy Gorilla on my desktop, using it as daily driver. Plasma settings are great. Everything is smooth, fast and looks awesome! Only thing I had to add is a script to auto start Carla with my settings and then minimize the window.
Ubuntu Studio for the win!

Stallman shared this article which has title: Our Smartphone addiction is costing the Earth

Stallman: The article says "our", to which I respond, "speak for yourself".

Going through the filmograpy of after . What is it with the "ordinary" still everyday shots of Ozu? Something really unbelievably magical about the beauty of his films.

Apparently I still had the spyware called an Instagram-account (thought I deleted it four years ago). Filled it with nonsense information and "deleted" it yesterday. They are quite sneaky when they only make the disable alternative available in the profile, delete is on another page altogether. (Not that deleting anything from a FB service actually deletes anything, but hey, it's worth a try).

"Three decades into the 'digital age', the promises of emancipation of the digital 'revolution' in are still unfulfilled. Furthermore, seems to generate new and unexpected challenges – for example, the unwarranted influence of digital monopolies, the radicalization of , and the facilitation of mass , to name a few."

Half a year I made it working as a freelancer in using only tools in . Needed a Winblows-VM for half an hour because of ... If omf actually was open (as the name suggests), if aatranslator would be open source/ported to Linux or could open omf (which I imagine is challenging) or there was some open source implementation similar to omf in Kdenlive that Ardour could open... Other than that got everything I need.

I have been 'optimizing' my webpage for a few days. I'm still learning, but double checking image file sizes, reducing javascript when html/css is sufficient, self-hosting instead of embedding third parties and removing custom fonts has sped up the loading time significantly 😄

I'm looking for what to use. Currently I don't have any recognised favourite. Do you have a font(must be free/libre) that you're passionate about?

Recommend in the replies.

Thanks! Boost appreciated for better result.

I have an idea for a patreon like system for software devlopment.
Suppose a software takes $10,000 to develop.
Then you set a minimum amount like $100 per license.
Then once 100 people buy it, the price of the license reduces to $10,000 ÷ 101. The difference is credited to all the original buyers. So as more and more people buy it, the per license price keeps dropping and the differnce is credited to all buyers.

I'd love to see someone implement this idea. Boosts appreciated.
