The IT is the ultimate weapon

it exploited the fragile priviledged man and weaponized him against the rest of the humanity

The Russina/Chinese/Saudi propaganda didn't started this
They just reinforced it

This all started with Commodore, moved on to Apple, M$ and then GAFA

The IT as a whole is the worst thing happened to humanity in a very long time

many white cishet folks in the FLOSS sphere live the claim of software freedom (or freedom in general) as a tool for them to emancipate themselves from the small dick syndrome they suffer from

So they wanto to use the tech to enslave the tech illiterate, because that's how they feel realized

That's why the free software movement brought us to the GAFA

So Gnome rejecting their precious contributions because they have a vision of the computer for the grandmas sends them bonkers

to what extend does the free software movement depend on a functional US democracy ?

there's an interesting thread by @civodul

involving and

it's about giving disk space usage by Guix a representation in the GUI !!

lists.gnu.org/archive/html/gui

I checked myself

this behaviour is in the current master too and it's different from the behaviour in 2.x

I have an injury to my left elbow

In my muscle memory there are some gestures that are harming, such as closing a winodw/tab with ctrl-w

What hardware could I get to make my usage less harmful ?

With age I'm getting less able to do things normally

I'd like of someone could test 3.0.4 for me

In regard to this issue
lists.gnu.org/archive/html/gui

I'd like someone to test

(help 'car)

on guile 3.0.4

If the behaviour is the same as with Guile 3.0.1 (the one I have) then I think this is enough to open a bug on the Guile bug tracker

I dream of a service similar to podcasts but for video

Maybe based on rss, it would distribute handles to the videos.

Handles to torrents, to stuff on Syncthing, on https, on Zeronet, whatever

And maybe a bunch of metadata, starting with a hash of the video

I posted 2 questions on the guile-user mailing list

This is the first one (any help appreciated)

lists.gnu.org/archive/html/gui

is it ok if I send a 6.2 Gb file through the gateway to someone ?

I wonder if there's any political problem in having a gcc frontend for Rust

Are they being discussed in any publicly accessible venue ?

there are some new docs in the pipe from , maybe this could make life easier for beginner app authors

I think this is good news

I just donated to

it's not much, it's what I can do

In order to keep our software free, we need to support it with money, not just with chat

moving all to p2p protocols would be of help, in the FLOSS liberation quest, I guess

client/server is inherently evil becaus it concentrates too much power in the server

And I'm not talking about webtorrent

I'm talking about native apps using p2p protocols

I just read a thread on the libreplanet mailing list

Someone working as a biostatistician in a major hospital in Portland

They's under pressure because their workplace enforces usage of proprietary software

How detached can these people be ?

In Portland, nonetheless !!

These are support points for proprietary software

I'd be especially iterested in this talk

can I find the video anywhere ?

I found some videos on youtube but this one was not among them
