Rant about GNU/Linux vs Linux 

So I just looked up "Linux" on Wikipedia, and of course it's an amalgamation of both the Linux kernel and the GNU/Linux family of OS.
The page says it's about the OS (there's a separate page for the kernel), says the userland is "GNU".
But then this same page links to as the official website, and goes on to say 74% of smartphones are Linux-based.

Is this page about the OS or the kernel?

From now on, I'm going to say "GNU/Linux" when relevant.

Ok, let's compromise.

Any online service that has weird requirements for a password (at least one uppercase, etc...) should display these on the _login_ form, so I can remember what I added to my password when I registered.

if the struggle was hopeless they wouldn't need propaganda

people who say "it's simple biology" when advanced biology enters the room


Disinformation flourishes because we deeply care about injustices but few of us care to check the facts.

It's genuinely ok to just think somebody's annoying without trying to ruin their life on the internet.

I have an idea

what if people simply stopped being evil

Found this to be quite useful.
I'll post the complete text in the thread below once I get some time.

I wrote another blog post about #Gitea #federation and the recent Gitea <-> Mastodon federation milestone.

It's nontechnical so you don't have to know anything about ActivityPub to read it!

So recently I discovered that android has a "Minimum width" setting in the developer settings, which lets you (un)zoom the screen way way more than the normal settings.

If you prefer having more stuff on the screen at once, this is great.



I finally followed my #Gitea account from Mastodon!!!

why are people so incredibly obsessed with blaming someone first and foremost, like

i just ran into someone essentially saying femboys that identify as male are appropriating femininity and associating their culture with trans culture and it’s their fault people see trans people a certain way and they’re bad and whatever

how is this a healthy way to look at problems
