@Tryphon I'm not sure I agree that economic growth is tightly linked to growth in CO2 emissions, but of course I meant to say what you wanted to say.

But it all producers of fossil fuels were to completely cease production tomorrow - probably it would lead to worldwide chaos and bloodshed, but it would solve the emissions problem nicely.

imagine if gnu was a carefully curated set of software that mutually benefit each other instead of a hodge podge of whatever people offer up, some of which is redundant. like how many common lisp implementations does one project need?

Anyone familiar with bootstrap around? I need some help with a website I’m working on.

The Microsoft PR spin machine continues: zdnet.com/article/linus-torval Sadly, it seems SJVN is now co-opted. This is pretty grim. Microsoft is *not* an ally to open.

"Bad code" is a lazy expression. It’s not specific and means different things to everyone.

OnlyKey question 

in the alternate syndicalist present, the creation engine is foss, an ecosystem of tooling surrounds it, and "skyrim-likes" are the sort of game you can pump out in a weekend gamejam. they are like a medium of pulp.

in the alternate syndicalist present, foss is not some conflicted strategic ethic but the de facto norm for virtually all software. why would you make 'ware any other way, when your survival has been totally disconnected from your capacity for labor?

Hey Fediverse, anyone know of a decent minimalist logo designer? I'm tired of playing roulette on Fiverr and would be willing to pay in and around $200 CAD for a decent design. DM me if you know someone decent with a portfolio I can review.

cgit+nntpchan is all you need to manage a public domain tech project

I don’t understand the point of the top-20 or top-100 lists of CO2 emitters that are mostly oil and gas producers. But the producers don’t use the stuff, they sell it to millions of other companies that burn it or transform it. It’s not like we can just ask them to pollute less without reducing the consumption of everyone down then chain. So it feels kinda pointless and borderline dishonest. Am I missing something?

@grainloom I haven't liked rocket.chat since that time I visited their homepage and their background animation ate all my RAM and/or CPU. That was possibly the first time I heard my 2013 MBP's fans go at full power.

The other two alternatives would be gitea (which is really easy to self host but I'm not aware of a central hosting) and sr.ht (which can be hosted but also offer premium repository for those who won't). cgit seems really dated and doesn't offer much features.
