The Dutch VVD being kicked out of the EU liberals for joining a coalition with the Dutch fash, and the German fash AfD being kicked out of the EU far-right for being too much even for LePen are things that slightly cheer me up.

@adnan There's a reason I said "slightly". We're not out of the woods by a long shot, but seeing some in-fighting amongst the right is not a bad thing.

@nancywisser I made them all up, except FelineFriday and Caturday. That doesn't mean they weren't ever used before of course.

I honestly do not know how to explain to someone why they should care about keeping their data secure. It's so glaringly obvious to me that this needs to be done, it's like asking why having access to clean water is necessary.

I find it very scary, in the #Netherlands, I grew up with stories about how when the Nazis conquered NL, our great census data made it super easy for the Nazis to find the Jews. That was enough reason for us to not save as much data about our population anymore.

Here in #Germany, after the war, they had the Stasi, using seemingly trivial personal data to make targets feel like they were losing their mind.

NL seems to have forgotten the lesson by now, DE not as much yet.

One of my favourite small quality of life features of is it showing what time the video will end.

It's just occurred to me that Game Changers is a leveled-up version of the Technical Difficulties Format Lab with a budget.

@WizardOfDocs As in the show?

@WizardOfDocs I've become a big dropout fan, they have such a fun group of people.

One of the things with docker I had to learn the hard way is to NEVER use ":latest" in "production" ...

ainmosni, avatar


Most kubernetes yaml linters will flag using :latest

Shut the FUCK up, purple Connections group!
This is insane at this point!

What is a purple Connections group?

I’m in . I am very impressed with how this country pulled itself together after its tragic history, not to mention how welcoming and hospitable its people are to visitors like us. “East Berlin” is beautiful with modern architecture. I’m sharing some of my . Note: I don’t know which ones are East or West.

Uber Arena, Berlin
Topography of Terror Museum
Checkpoint Charlie

ainmosni, avatar


All east, except for checkpoint Charlie, which was the literal border.

Funnily enough, I don't think many of us would have much good to say about the area around the arena, the east side gallery is cool though.

Hey liberals, is this making you feel a creeping unease? That these people don't care about the law and are subverting it for their own evil purposes?

Or is it still worse when Trump threatens and fires prosecutors

The US has had a plan to invade the Netherlands on standby for a long time, in case a US citizen ended up standing trial there.

important (to me) footnote about why Linux now:

  • My desktop computer has started showing me full-screen alerts that Microsoft is ending support for Windows 10 and this computer isn't eligible to upgrade to Windows 11. (Would have been nice of them to tell me in 2022 when I spent many, many evenings failing to upgrade.) What do they expect me to do, spend another $2k on a new computer?
ainmosni, avatar

@WizardOfDocs You probably don't have a TPM module installed.

But Linux is in a pretty good place, desktop wise, these days IMHO. Depending on your uses of course.

ainmosni, avatar

@WizardOfDocs The oversimplified explanation of it is that it stands for a "Trusted Platform Module". It can be used as a "secure enclave" for the computer, as in, a safe place to store keys and other sensitive data.

IIRC Windows uses it to store the keys for disk encryption.

Linux can actually use it as well, but doesn't by default.

Unpopular opinion, I think calling what you produce primarily devalues your work.

ainmosni, avatar

You are not a , you are an entertainer, an artist, an educator, a writer, a musician, a comedian, and probably much more.

Your work is more than just for a platform.

ainmosni, avatar


Agreed, and author is a much nicer term. Content and content creator puts the agency and importance on the place that holds the content more than on the actual creator of said content.

xahteiwi, to random avatar

To call a subset of humans "creatives" makes about as much sense as calling a subset of humans "bipeds" or "oxygen breathers".

ainmosni, avatar

@xahteiwi Good point, but in our current economical system it makes sense. As in "people making their living making products we categorise as creative".

That said, it's a term I'll happily bury along with "content" for anything hosted by a platform.

"But it's now little more than intellectual property, known primarily for what owns it, rather than who made it." - Stephanie Sterling

Great description of the current corporate media landscape, which loves franchises that they control while replacing creatives at a whim.

People who call themselves "Alpha Males" obviously never emotionally made it past Beta

I honestly think that they are being honest about them still being in alpha.

This is how you both take the piss out of the tech industry while also recommending a product. Nice work @theverge_com

I live in Germany, people here love actual paperwork. I use my brother to scan all my mail and automatically add it to paperless-ngx.

Seriously though, fedi was built by furries, trans and queer folk, disabled neurodivergent people.

This is the reason the culture here is what it is. Why CWs are a thing. Why image descriptions are a thing. Why privacy matters here. Why moderation tools not only exist, but are usable — and used.

If you had joined and asked yourself "wow, how come this place is so chill and kinda… nice?" — that's thanks to all the nice people from communities some people call "weird".

So .

While not disagreeing at all, I would also say that the lack of profit motive helps a LOT.
