it's not arch linux, arch gnu/linux or arch. it's arch btw. :arch:​

Arch is nothing more than Debian sid with a nice PR department. Don't @ me.

Thank you to @NGIZero @dachary @forgefriends and so many others for getting us to this point.

We are very much looking forward to many wonderful things that federation within forges can support.

The No-Code Movement will turn all developers into glorified tech support folks, when no-coders call up crusty Go devs and say "hey im trying to Wordpress a Facebook and it's not working. What do?"

My SVTPlay/YouTube app for mobile linux is working pretty smoothly on my OG now. If I only make it possible to search for YouTube channels in the app, instead of hardcoding channelids in the code, it might be ready for a v0.0.1 release soon :)

After Mozilla recently began accepting donations via BitPay, many people started being vocal about cancelling Mozilla and Firefox and switching to other browsers.

I know crypto sucks, but don't y'all realize that the other browser engines are developed by megacorps that are LEAGUES ahead in terms of ecologic impact, and that are almost entirely built on top of evil business models?

Mozilla's only sin was accepting donations via BitPay. Please let's stop being so toxic about everything, and boycott BitPay and Bitcoin rather than Mozilla, shall we?

I passed my Japanese course! Still waiting for the final grade, but at least I know I passed, which is all that matters!

Swedish public broadcasting is interviewing an astronomer about how likely it is that the events in "Don't look up" would happen in real life, completly missing the point of the movie. Climate change is real and will with 100% certainty kill us if we don't do anything about it. Politicians is not doing anything real about it and is instead stalling and doing exactly what Meryl Streeps character is doing in the movie. The movie is not about an asteroid hitting the earth, it is about the planet killer we have sent tumbeling towards the earth all on our own.

I dont know if I should feel happy or sad, but there is actual birds singing this morning. I don't think I have ever heard bird song in January before.

I am trying to remember what year I first used linux. My friend had a server in his closet that ran S.u.S.E. (as I think it was stylized at the time) where I got a shell account and a /~micke web directory. I think it might have been 1996.

Too bad there is only one day a year to watch Cobra Kai on. January 1:st, aka Cobra Kai Day.

Finally, it’s 2022. Year of the Linux Desktop.
