Working on a @librelingo app for . It is made with QML, Python (PySide2) and Kirigami.

Code is here: codeberg.org/dimkard/libreling

Not released a stable version yet, but I wonder about the packaging options for the app to be available in @ManjaroARM @postmarketOS , @Ubports, @mobian , etc.

Is there anything special that I should take care of (upstream) to facilitate packaging?

BTW, is there any PySide2 app packaged as out there?

Let's refrain from celebrating "the beginning of the end" of . I am not sure that reform of Section 230 (exempts platforms from legal liability for user generated content), centralized moderation and government control is a step forward.

I turn on my PC.

The local wildlife are immediately sterilised by the excessive output from my four exposed nuclear reactors running at a critically risky heat output.

The sound of 10,000 cooling fans deafens the city’s morning traffic as my warehouse of 500 parallel-chained AMD Razer Threadrippers bursts into life, forming the equivalent processing power of 2015 in one room.

Nearby, my cluster of Nvidia 5090 Test Cards begins to warp the local time continuum as they calculate answers man was never meant to know.

Very gently, I open Microsoft Teams.

Instantly, the already deafening noise of fans increases to a murderous wail as they try to keep my equipment at operating temperatures. A nuclear reactors’ fusion catches up with its cooling and explodes destroying the lives of millions. The floor begins to melt away as my processors over clocked ten-fold reach critical mass and descend directly into hell. My Nvidia cluster collapses into a singularity and begins to devour the planet.

Quickly now, I open a text chat, it’s a bit laggy.

The sheer struggle of loading some text destroys the remaining systems. Me and my equipment are deleted from reality by an unknown overseer.

Humanity is not ready for instant messaging

"A Screw Fell to the Ground"

A screw fell to the ground
In this dark night of overtime
Plunging vertically, lightly clinking
It won’t attract anyone’s attention
Just like last time
On a night like this
When someone plunged to the ground

Remember Xu Lizhi, the Foxconn worker and poet who took his own life on 30 September 2014, at the age of 24.

P.S. Foxconn is one of the "beloved" iPhone manufacturers

I honestly think the problem with learning to program is the attitude of what programming is for.

Instead of another tool to think with, to create and explore with, it is simply a skillset needed for a job in technology.

How can people ever enjoy computing when all the programming jobs are so boring? Or when the operating system itself is hostile to making programs?

Or even more pathetically, getting told that you are wasting your time if they are not learning C, C++, or Java.

I want to host a HTML file under a domain I own, without needing any central server/organization and without a static IP.

What are my options?

So far, IPFS seems the best. I can put my file on the decentralized network by running my own node and use a TXT DSN entry to point that to my domain (docs.ipfs.io/how-to/websites-o)

Any other alternatives?

I'm looking for something simpler and accessible (explaining IPFS, even for techy people, takes a lot).

When I was a kid I was kind of confused about how diet products work. In my mind, you were supposed to consume them on top of "normal" ones. So, eat, drink whatever you want, then have a diet soda and a piece of low fat cheese and you are gonna be healthy.

OK, that's funny, but it's all about a misconception in the head of a child after all.

Now, let's see how policymakers and corporates approach investment in green infrastructure and renewable energy.

"The officer subsequently raped Noor and her five-year old daughter in a small room used for interrogation at the border crossing."

That's the outcome of , and laws that prevent organizations from saving lives at sea.

That guy said:

"'Keep the camp of Auschwitz in good condition because I want, at some point, the national socialist regime to come back, Hitler to come back, take the Jews and put them in Auschwitz.’ ... Is one not allowed to believe and want to believe ‘I want to exterminate someone’?”

"There are no (borders) guards, if there are no dead."

OK, that's what a random intolerant hater said. Why should we bother?

Well, that's the new minister of health of Greece.

@nitrokey Android 😭 I understand, but disappointing. And that means no #mainline support...

@nitrokey Hey NitroKey, as a #postmarketOS dev this honestly gets me a bit worried. I've seen several companies jumping on the "Linux on mobile" bandwagon without realizing what makes the PinePhone and Librem 5 so great: mainline Linux kernel support.

Please make sure that if you make a Linux-based phone, it'll either ship with mainline support or has at least work going to it to make that happen in the future!

And to think these hypocrites in the EU were falling over each other to criticise Trump’s wall.

Et tu, Brute?

The US losing face in #Afghanistan, at the price of so many deaths, puting millions at risk, is no suprise for anyone who followed the releases of WikiLeaks along the years.

Nor are the insane profits made from it by Raytheon, Lockheed-Martin, Northrop-Grumann, KBR, etc.

None of the people responsible for the war in Afghanistan or the war criminals ever got sued.

Yet, #Assange the journalist who helped expose endless wars is rotting in jail, tortured by the Empire...

Greece is burning...

Thanks to decades following the dogma of eternal economic growth we managed to change the climate globally.

People in Greece are facing one of the hottest summers in years.

At the same time, neoliberalism and austerity policies marked as "waste of money" any reasonable investment in people, knowledge and technology to prevent or effectively tackle wildfires. Forests have always been an unprofitable "business", why should we care after all?

I'm so thankful right now I get to focus on building something that's meaningful. I know down the road I'll look back at this time where I fill my day with ActivityPub, IndieAuth and building tools to empower individuals instead of corporations. I don't take it for granted, and I know I won't have the luxury to do this forever. Thank you to everyone who has helped me work on Owncast today.
