Yes or No?

Switched my laptop to Devuan at weekend.

Experience: so far so good. Surely beats my experience with one of their first versions, when it was hardly usable for me. Also, APT seems much faster than I remember it and the repositories are huge, not taking into account all the officially distributed .deb packages for external applications.

It also takes a lot of weight from my shoulders after using Slackware for several years.

Great work, Devuan team!

web surfing has become all but impossible. nothing links anymore, it's all narcissistic inside linking if anything. i used to surf links across the network, stumbling from one thing to the next, surprises and missteps. now it's all search hubs and feeds rather than networks.

what we use now via the http protocol isn't really the web anymore. there's no web here. it's all silos, standing alone and trying desperately to keep me from leaving. no longer a digital ocean, now small tide pools with no path between, left in the receding wake of the surf.

Github Actions, LOTWBot 

First truly unattended run and it screwed up without explanation... Had to restart the action for it to run correctly (this explains the delay today).

Today, along with Thanksgiving in the US, is the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. While it's good to see this social issue being recognized, the need for such an international day to exist is a shame for humankind. We surely should be kind to each other more than just once a year, and without the need for an "international reminder".

The @linkoftheweek bot can be considered stable now. Everyone is welcome to follow, of course :ablobcathappypaws:

Know of a really nice site? Have a bunch of bookmarks worth sharing? Consider submitting your own links for inclusion in the bot's catalog!

Links to websites, articles and other stuff is welcome (any popular protocol can do).

I swear, @MicrosoftTeams@twitter.com needs better UI/UX people.

There is no reason a dialog box should ever have a horizontal scrollbar that you have to use to find the close button.

Mozilla's site is littered with Google trackers, and Firefox is set specifically not to block them (even with strict tracker blocking settings). It's annoying...
