This is a well-written reflection of RMS's retirement I think should satisfy everyone: https://email@example.com/a-reflection-on-the-departure-of-rms-18e6a835fd84
But please don't respond by complaining about Medium.
P.S. If the retirement of one man is enough to weaken our movement, it doesn't deserve to exist. Let's not let this be the failure Stallman apparantly worries it is.
"... one of the many major problems with governing people is that of whom you get to do it; or rather of who manages to get people to let them do it to them.
To summarize: it is a well-known fact that those people who must want to rule people are, ipso facto, those least suited to do it.
To summarize the summary: anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job."
- Douglas Adams, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe
Interesting read on #rms, not an apology (far from it) but gives perspective.
A reflection on the departure of RMS - Thomas Bushnell, BSG - Medium
Tired of searching for the URLs of the #fdroid repositories I use every time I reset a phone, I decided to write myself a note in nextcloud with a list of all of them.
Found out that I already compiled such a list months ago. Never used it, never remembered it.
Not sure if I'm happy for the problem that solved itself or worried about my brain.
Good that #sinology left the possibility to configure key based login (and by consequence, also backups/rsync/sftp/etc) on their NAS units. Pity they did not provide a nice GUI for it though.
Reflecting on past experiences I came to the conclusion that, if you're really passionate about something (anything!) and you wish to pass life together with someone else, it's important to find someone passionate too.
It doesn't matter much if the passion isn't shared. It's important that the person has experienced commitment to something, though.
It takes a passionate person to understand how passion itself can drive someone to do things that would appear weird or crazy otherwise.
Christmasy #hotpepper is christmasy.
Short walk in the #country before going back home and start banging my head against a wall because there is a particularly stubborn android ROM that doesn't want to build.
Woohoo, finally it's getting a bit colder here. Now I can stay in bed and read a #book without sweating.
Actually, I probably won't, as the cats will assault me for warmth as soon as they see me in bed.
