US gets very upset when other countries launch successfull things. If it's not US it's evil.
Any goverment will be evil to other goverment.

Hey fediverse,
adriconf currently relies on mesa to provide some of it's functionality. Unfortunately there is a bug that is only fixed in a more recent Mesa version (from 25 September).
If I switch to use this new mesa version, distributions using old mesa will break.
Oficially I'm only supporting flatpak, which already has the latest version.
Should I start to depend on the new version of mesa and possibly break distribution users?

Started my intensive German classes yesterday.
Looking now to add some German technology blogs to my feed list, but so far no luck. They post too much content in a day. Has anyone a suggestion for a low post-rate blog?

That looks awesome. I hope your employees enjoy working there.

I found an awesome 65 TV with the price of a 50 size. But guess what? I will probably not be able to buy it, because I don't have enough space for it :cate:

Yes, there are lists of people you can follow.
I don't remember the name now, but there are públic lists sorted by topic.

I have shared it before but now I found the time to watch it through. This is such a great talk. Thanks @aral !! video.lqdn.fr/videos/watch/70f

@aral
Awesome talk. I hope they ask you to present again.
Keep up the great work.
@Mastodon @Gargron

Wow, just had the Pirates/Greens pick through my EU parliament presentation slides with a fine tooth comb in a phone call and try to get me to change what I’m saying so as not to criticise Facebook, etc. WTF?

Never had anyone try to censor what I say before. Of course I will speak my mind verbatim tomorrow and if anything this means I won’t be accepting any future speaking engagements at the EU parliament for these parties.

WTAF?

CC @Gargron

Just finished preparing my presentation for the European Parliament on Tuesday. I’m representing @Mastodon and small technology there on a panel to discuss the future of the Internet and I hope we can get the regulators to at least not fuck things up for our ethical alternatives.

My slides (not hugely meaningful without the narrative but in case you’re curious) are here:

Remind me again why I let you talk me into this, @Gargron? ;P

@tuxedocomputers
It's awesome to see your company growing.
I have bought a tuxedo laptop 6 months ago and I'm extremely happy with it. Works like a charm.
I hope your company keeps producing those high quality products.
