Microsoft included a full implementation of Word inside Teams, even on their Linux version

I'm using a legit version of Microsoft Word on Linux

How can you be kind, when you are in debt? How can you give freely, when the things you own are not your own? How can you spend your time and attention to help strangers, if you should be working to repay your creditor?

What an interesting concept for a new brand of free/open software.

its fucked up nowadays, you cant just make a thing. you have to make a running series of that thing, which goes on forever, and has a patreon, a mailing list, a discord channel, an official wiki, a fan wiki, a prima strategy guide, its own cryptocurrency, flag, national anthem, nuclear deterrent, etc

used to be pretty into machine learning and computer vision things, but stuff like this is always what gets the big $$$

On being "lazy" about software freedom:

Everyone lives a full life. Not everyone gets the same opportunity to pick what fills their life, though. People are busy. They have things they like to do or find easy, & things that are unpleasant or difficult.

People whose life is filled differently than yours, who have different priorities than yours, aren't any more lazy than you are lazy for not picking a more compassionate way to talk about the challenges standing in the way of software freedom.

signal really telling on themselves with this whole crypto thing. they claim it's being implemented this way for "privacy", but they're just throwing a massive IRS target on their users' backs instead.

finally started playing animal crossing and i love the look of all the UI elements :blobaww:

mh/ph - 

I haven't been handling stress that well recently. My brain keeps blowing smaller and smaller things out of proportion.

The current theory is that I'm in a sleep deficit and/or my gut health is in a poor state, so I'll see how far sleeping in and eating yogurt gets me.

The good news is that I was able to take today off to decompress. It feels pretty alright so far.
