I generally enjoy listening to some of the TWiT podcasts, but it frustrates me to no end how out of date Leo's comments are on pretty much anything. And he is surprised by the same things week after the week as the co-host have to explain the same things to him over and over. At least I have my skips of his three minute ad reads down to a very precise science by now. And I suppose I should appreciate that he is consistent while droning on and on.

Falling asleep in the garden in the afternoon sun with a blanket over you comes highly recommended. ❤️

I've finished my curved screen CRT emulator! 🥳
It has an upscaler to play original systems and an internal Pi 4 with an SD card slot in the back to change operating systems.
It works way better than expected and looks rather nice too! ☺️

Based on all the positive things I've heard about the latest Fedora, I think I'll give it a shot on the laptop. Interesting to see how well it handles the old nvidia in there...

Anybody has recommendations of websites to create events that could be used instead of Facebook?
The events are activist types, so marches, workshops, etc.

[boosts appreciated]

Path of Exile is great fun on the Steam Deck (too). It's a little strange that the game always feels a little choppy, though. Gamescope show no hiccups, but there is *something* that is always a little choppy. Even on Series X. I wonder if frame pacing issues aren't visible in Gamescope.

roses are red
violets are blue
in surveillance capitalism
poem reads you

and shows you ads
for flower shops
and tracks your clicks
and never stops

it cares not about
if privacy's harmed
the money is green
when people are farmed

twitter is cyan
facebook is blue
your friends are the product
and so are you

Bye-bye Netflix. Maybe stop cranking your prices while killing off your shows.

Is there something in the fediverse that can act as a forum plugin to an existing website? I am thinking something along the lines of Discourse but with a Fediverse slant so you could connect multiple similar-minded sites?

Googel abuses its supremacy to bully or even abandon small providers under the pretext of security & protection of its users. Thus, with the compulsion to use OAuth2 for applications, they are running a gauntlet through their procedure, which makes it almost impossible for any of them to do so. This is how Google seals off GMail from the outside world as its own system.

Svenskerne har fat i noget her. Flyt Rasmus Paludan til steder, hvor han ikke får den konfrontation han søger.

"Politiet har nemlig valgt ikke at give tilladelse til, at Rasmus Paludan kan afholde valgmøder i Skäggetorp i Linköping og Navestad i Norrköping, som ellers var planlagt denne søndag.

Politiet »fortsætter nu undersøgelsen af ​​tilladelser med fokus på at tilbyde arrangøren alternative samlingssteder inden for hver kommune«, skriver de på deres hjemmeside."

In a survey the EFF sent me, I suggested they create an account on the fediverse, so they can reach more supporters and support innovative free software that promotes interoperability among platforms, something they've advocated for in the past, too.

If you can boost this post, maybe I'll be able to show them that there are quite a few users who would like them here!

The EFF is the infamous nonprofit organisation that fights for privacy, government transparency, and digital freedom. Their fight is very important, and the EFF is very special to me. https://www.eff.org/about https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electronic_Frontier_Foundation

You can see some of their work here https://www.eff.org/work

In the meantime, you can follow @eff, which is an unofficial mirror of their Twitter.
