UNIX: Do one thing and do it well
Also UNIX: Let's use a monolithic kernel

Chakemate Unix boosters. This shows the fallacy of "Unix phillosophy". What's the "one-thing" you are talking about?

Fight Against

"Digital Restrictions Management is the practice of imposing technological restrictions that control what users can do with digital media. When a program is designed to prevent you from copying or sharing a song, reading an ebook on another device, or playing a single-player game without an Internet connection, you are being restricted by DRM. In other words, DRM creates a damaged good; it prevents you from doing what would be possible without it."

Yes, The name matters. It will always remind us how and why everything started. Use the term GNU/Linux instead of "Linux" .

With the account @MYYS
I'm testing using to promote . We are also active on so will be interesting to see if there's any interest for this kind of stuff on Mastodon. Spontaneously I think there are not as many people interested in candles on hehe, but we'll see. Wish me luck. 😄 🕯️

Exactly 20 years ago my #Debian Developer account was created. During that time I initiated the #Backports project, was part of the #Linux #Kernel, #HighAvailability, #MySQL and #Python modules teams and was responsible for #Gajim, #Vim, #slrn, #lsof and some other small packages. Unfortunately I wasn't really active during the last few years, I hope this will change again soon...

For pleroma newfriends: you can use nearly all mastodon apps with pleroma, even if they don't explicitly support it. just try it.

I've just deleted whatsapp, told a couple of my friends that aren't already using signal where to find me if they need me. Leaving whatsapp still isn't trending in my country but I hope that will change soon.

Hey! I've discovered on matrix a german local administration that hosts its own Mastodon instance. They also have Threema and Telegram accounts... So no WhatsApp!

Why this is not a thing on every country? I mean, as a public service, you should not force your citizens to use any app or service that collects your personal data.

@redstarfish
What makes #Jami a better alternative than #signal :
1. Distributed, Just like #BitCoin
2. Free/Libre, supported by @fsf
3. Secure, end-to-end encryption
4. No server, no middleman
5. No ads
6. 100% privacy
7. Phone number not required!
8. Anonymous

Questions for spaced repetition TUI development(Python 3):

1. What data filetype would work best with my goal of giving each card in the datafile a "front", a "back", and the ability to run any terminal command that the user desires(i.e. feh to display image related to card)?

2. What's the best way to have the program save information on the cards' positions in my Leitner Box implementation?

3. How the fuck has anyone managed to get anything done with Urwid?

Well, I couldn't get my ThinkPenguin wireless N usb adapter to work under OpenBSD.

Product ID: TPE-N150USB
Chipset: Atheros AR9721

There is firmware but dhclient is consistently failing.

Luckily I have an Ralink RT5370 wireless adapter that appears to be support just swimmingly!
