There's this one house in Ulverstone, Tasmania that's had a Linux sign out the front for years. No context. Just chilling in the front yard. I have no idea why.

@ConnyDuck Do you accept any other non-Patreon mechanism for donations?

It doesn't seem like you can accept payments via LiberaPay at the moment.

Any sysadmin ready to host something icky and receive a spike in traffic?

Serbian government shut down a comedy show and the TV network decided not to air the last episode episode last night:

Of course, it leaked, but it has been already removed from YouTube and DailyMotion.

One could say they've A/B tested the entire movie.

I would recommend against pirating the new Black Mirror film.

You really do need a Netflix account and a remote in your hand while watching it.

But damn it, world's first interactive film you can stream today is a Black Mirror film. How cool is that?

Note to :

On January 1st, the EU is launching 14 bug bounty programs for popular open source projects. (<-- this sentence really feels awesome to write)

VLC, KeePass, Notepad++, Filezilla and Drupal, just to name a few.

In an attempt to simply the terminology in the fediverse, I propose we start referring to "instances" as "neighborhoods". Here's a short pitch:

Each neighborhood:
* Has its own set of rules.
* Has its own "guard" (sysadmin) that makes sure there are no incidents.
* Is usually (but not always) focused on a common theme.

You can send an update to:
1. A specific person.
2. Your own neighborhood.
3. Entire network.

IMO this proposal would make things about 30% easier to understand for newcomers.

This week, a member of the United Kingdom’s Parliament published 250 pages of internal documents from Facebook.

Here are some of the key points to pay attention to.

If you prefer video over text, their ambassador was interviewed by The Daily Show:

A successful Dutch model of ad-free journalism is trying to raise funds to launch an international version. They're 2/3 of the way there with 5 days to go.

Please read their 10 principles and decide for yourself if this is the type of journalism worth supporting.

I can guarantee that Mastodon users will like what they see if they click on this link:

I would be thrilled to see them reach their goal (if not, we get our money back). They've won me over years ago.

Oh, I get it! I am a very good developer, happily living my life, when I see our Internet going in the wrong direction (to put it mildly). Against all odds, I decide to release my own projects & continue to run my open source projects-very legal & very cool, talked about it on the Internet...

....Lightly looked at working for Google. Put up zero money, zero guarantees and didn’t do the job application. Witch Hunt!

I wanted to compare the writing speed of multiple devices I own, so I did.

Bluetooth is the worst. I can't think of another technology that's as widely adopted as it is completely dysfunctional. Five freaking generations later, I still can't have Bluetooth turned on on both my laptop and my phone at the same time, or it all goes to shit.
