So #GitLab is planning to delete repos that hasn't been active for more than a year if you're on the free tier. theregister.com/2022/08/04/git

It's more of a reason to move to a #Gitea powred alternative such as #Codeberg and others since I can see #GitHub do this as well eventually.

It's all about making money really.

Assembly is not as scary as I thought it was going to be and is actually pretty interesting. Enjoyable book by Jonathan Bartlett: link.springer.com/book/10.1007

If you're trying to apply an attribute to an entire file in , don't forget to add the !: it should be #![cfg(feature = "myfeature")] not #[cfg(feature = "myfeature")]. Took me longer than I'd like to admit to realize why it wasn't working. 🤦‍♂️ It's analogous to using //! instead of ///.

Oh this is nice!

#zellij, the #terminal multiplexer written in #rust, just released their first version with #sixel support:

zellij.dev/news/sixel-search-s

This makes zellij the largest userbase terminal multiplexer with image support! They also were kind enough to put the sixel stuff in crates, so other projects can work with it.

To boost or to favourite, that is the question.

#NextCloud CEO and founder Frank Karlitschek was approached by a #Microsoft lawyer earlier this year to make a deal.

In the meeting, the Microsoft correspondent offered benefits in the form of collaboration and marketing to Nextcloud. For example, they wanted to promote the Nextcloud logo in Microsoft marketing material – if Nextcloud would consider dropping its anti-trust complaint.

Microsoft used to be a company of jerks, liars and cheaters 40 years ago, it remains a company of jerks, liars and cheaters today.

I finally have a personal site for long-form texts! 🎉

In this first post I break down the why, how and what of my little place on the internet. It's... unconventional.

Feedback welcome!

I fucking hate CKAN I fucking hate CKAN I fucking hate CKAN

Microsoft has asked Lenovo to make it harder to boot Linux on their computers.

obviously I know some really cool people who work at Microsoft but it's very funny to me that people have been harping on us FOSS types for not instantly forgiving them for 20 years of malice, and now we've got this. [1]

when Microsoft is asking manufacturers to prevent people from booting other OSes and not communicating as to why, they are positioning themselves as the enemy. it's that simple. if they want to be trusted by Linux users, they need to earn that trust.

we're about 2y away, by my estimation, from living in a bizarro world where x86 PCs are less open to free desktops than ARM Macs.

Anyone here trust me enough to DM me a Lobste.rs invite? (I think that's how that works.)

Heads up! is on track to ban all commercial activity by projects on Microsoft Store in about a week! This is even worse than their (eventually repealed) 2011 ban on for their app store! 😡️ We demand rollback of this new policy: sfconservancy.org/blog/2022/ju
