Polish politics // Woman rights abuse
Right now we have very big "Black Protest" marches, as ruling party decided to enforce (already very strict) abortion restrictions in Poland.
Basically woman would be forced to birth with severe defects (even ones that will die in first day of life).
They also started using terms like: "unborn human", "unborn patient".
This is all to appease to Catholic Church (after bishops publicly urged the government to hasten this legislation)
I read conditions for a governmental tender, and I see that this institution went under some major trauma in the past:
- They require 90% documentation coverage;
- Conditions explicitly forbid deleting comments before giving them the code (what kind of people even do that);
- Cyclomatic complexity less than 20 (once again: what kind of people);
Is there science fiction that predicted antivaxers?
Not like, people rejecting cures and embracing disease because they have deeply-held religious objections or w/e, but people rejecting cures and embracing disease because they just kind of don't trust anything and/or get spun up about extremely unlikely pet theories.
This is a big one: 74% of top 1 million PHP websites is still running on unsupported versions.
Poland Homphobia // Facism
Polish newspaper to include: "LGBT free-zone" sticker.
I'm not sure what to do with this. I feel I should do something, but I don't know what could it be. I try to fund good NGO's as much as possible. I try to be as supportive as possible, but I'm not a peoples person. I'll fund any legal action against the newspaper.
Becky Chambers' "The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet" is the warmest, most wholesome sci-fi I've read in a long time. It feels like if Firefly and Star Trek: TNG had a baby.
It follows a tiny, ramshackle starship with a crew that's roughly half human, half alien. The alien species are well fleshed out; in fact, a big focus of the book is the crewmembers learning to navigate each other's cultures and love each other despite their differences. Grabbing the sequels ASAP.

6. Wait for the cable to arrive;
7. Somehow image copied badly, and it wasn't even booting up;
One man developement team from Poland. Mostly I do python stuff.
