Apparently just mentioning "" in a channel's topic is enough for the new Freenode admins to join, change the topic, and remove your operator status.

They even devoiced the admin, so he can't talk about what's going on in the channel.

Just wow 🤯

#chatcontrol will mean privatised #masssurveillance and the end of digital #secrecyofcorrespondence. It is not only inefficient but counter-productive, dangerous and causes severe collateral damage, including to children:

A ban on TikTok would have been impossible without closed app store gatekeepers, says EFF board member @Zittrain. Walled gardens are free speech weak links.

Starting another thread to poke @selea : are you getting decent BAT tokens here? I just installed Brave last week and this site already 6% of my attention ^^

@selea I have a bug on this instance, can you help? Currently on trying to solve it.

See screenshot
[2] .

Notice on [1] there is no top bar, while on [2] there is.

Apparently it's not supposed to be that way.

Do you have any pointers for debugging this?

Looks like the #Qt devs are using COVID-19 as an excuse to effectively make Qt proprietary software.

"last week, the company suddenly informed both the #KDE e.V. board and the KDE Free QT Foundation that the economic outlook caused by the Corona virus puts more pressure on them to increase short-term revenue. As a result, they are thinking about restricting ALL Qt releases to paid license holders for the first 12 months"

A year in the software world is eternity, may as well not release it.

Request: I want to access a Gnome desktop on a baremetal server. I want a RDP like experience, if possible. Ideas?

Spending the evening with a blindfold on. So far it seems my WeeChat and vim plugins for espeak are working pretty well. Still need to work on something for aerc and I've realized that I should write an interactive git diff listener.

@admin FYI I am unfollowing all in this screenshot (not sure what is my stance on instance blocking)

@selea ever pondered about installing Wallabag, tt-rss and some kind of IRC bouncer?

TIL: #FIRE (Financial Independence Retire Early) is a marketing vehicle based on lies put forward by rich white people. Take this hour. Worth it.
