Do you wanna know how much Donald Trump and US politics affect the world? The term "fake news" (in English), and the usage of concepts of "fact or fake" have entered the political discussion in Brazil, a country where only about 5% of the population speaks English fluently.

Wow, a teenager's open source trained model got used for an "AI generated" painting which just sold for over $400K at auction.
Not only that, they had the cheek to ask for his help getting it working! 😯

Raccoons are so damn cute with those tiny little hands and their scrappy personalities. This video on reddit is the epitome of raccoon cuteness:
@ashfurrow 👋 When are we getting verified links in this instance? 😁
Yes, that's right! TWO Muthafuckin CPUs! Why would I want two?? I paid for one! What is going on?
So my suspicion is that Amazon didn't actually have the CPU in stock (the website said they had one), so they had to go and buy it from some OEM supplier and ship that to me instead. And for that I commend them, but now I have no use for this CPU. 😂
FSF bigotry Show more
I kinda like the “Kind COmmunication Guidelines”, because it show the FSF's priorities and how much they (don't) give a shit about social issues.
Software might not be quite as “free” as RMS wants?
Write a series of incredibly-prescriptive licenses, go on a multi-decades crusade to litigate them.
FSF and the GNU project are full of bigots?
Write some vague “guidelines”, explain that it is a feature no to define a way to make violations stop, and cite an RMS blogpost where he says that ignoring people's pronouns is totally OK.

There ya go. 😍 The shop clerk even gave me a huge discount, which makes things even better.
(This also reminded me that you can’t bargain on amazon. Another benefit of physical stores!) https://mastodon.technology/media/yxJd2HHZ3upehjKsjSA
Okay so I’ve made up my mind. I had forgotten I have a mini-ITX hackintosh back at home in Brazil. It should be enough for me to code for a month. Then I’m just going to buy a Radeon RX 580 graphics card to play games on it. It’s a rather good video card for its price, and it will be much cheaper than getting a second-hand MacBook.
