We’re looking for a Linux System Developer to help us expand our service as we build a more private and secure Internet. Want to join our team? We have open positions in Geneva, Vilnius, Skopje, and Zurich. careers.protonmail.com/o/linux

Do my inexpert repairs make my headphones progressively worse, or do things that need regular repair but aren't built for it naturally tend to also become worse whether the repairs are decent or not?

Daughter told me on the way to school that ice unicorns live at the south pole. By the time we got there, we'd decided they pull the sleigh for Anti-Santa, who gives gifts to all the naughty kids so they won't feel left out, and sabotages the global Santa surveillance network because kids shouldn't be monitored by a shady guy in a red suit.

Me: *reading a plastic surgeon's FAQ on top surgery*
Surgeon's website: *sudden pop-up noting that they are currently having a sale on breast augmentation*
Me: ...well, nice to know they either don't do targeted advertising or are really, really bad at it.

I love this: "It generates a little crisis in your mind." About inclusive language, in Argentinian Spanish:

The gender-neutral “e” is not only more inclusive of non-binary identities, Mira says, it is also a powerfully symbolic way to protest the entire structure of the language.
“It generates a little crisis in your mind, like what’s happening here?” Mira said. “It makes you stop and think about how we communicate.”

Sometimes I wonder what Yoon Ha Lee's take on the setting of Splatoon would be, and then I decide I probably sleep better not knowing

Voting is not activism. Voting does not replace activism. It does not prevent activism. It does not contradict activism.

In the best case, it can help enable activism.

In the worst case, it can mitigate harm.

if you think devs making up stories about personal relationships with women in FOSS to undermine and remove them from communities isn't something that needs to be addressed than I don't know what to tell you

what's the fucking point of any of this when these assholes get carte blanche to piss around doing what they want and harming who they want

Some 'voting is consenting to capitalism' posts popping up on my feed. I understand, but not right now.

Help people not die first, wank about theory later.

So basically Kaniiini is trying to defame Funkwhale as a ‘piracy tool’ because they’re upset the developer of it won’t interact with them and their cadre of bigoted and toxic developers.

LOL, this is hilarious. This is so obviously a personal attack based on hurt feelings.

This only makes me want to use Funkwhale even more.

On the one hand, I was in fact the idiot who left the back door open overnight, and when you do something that stupid a polite request not to do it again is the gentlest possible reasonable response.

On the other hand, the fact that my housemate felt the need to explain that it was a bad idea to leave the back door open, as if I might not already know that, really makes me worry about his opinion of me overall.

I'm only still on twitter for Splatoon posts and a handful of authors/creators I like who don't have much else in the way of online public presence, and somehow that's more annoying than having more/better reasons to be there
