lol @ YouTube "strike"

Promote alternatives like peertube. YouTube will not notice a drop in viewers for a strike. At all. It's *the* video platform.

Since screenshots seem to get more engagement than any other post about it, here's a screenshot of me logging into my MUD and taking a look around.

The V Programming Language: vlang.io/

The simplicity of Go with the memory management of Rust.

Cross platform. Bootstraps with C compiler to compile its. Compiles sample code suspiciously fast. GUI. Hot reload?

WTF another programming language?

Please keep them coming! 😀

Reposting some old comments on UEFI, since I got riled up about it again:

UEFI is perhaps the single most egregious pile of garbage ever concieved by humans. I don't think it's possible to overstate how awful it truly is.

Here's how BIOS works: basically, the computer loads the first 512 bytes of disk into memory and jumps to it. The OS takes over from there and does whatever it needs to, like bootstrapping stage 2 and loading the kernel from the filesystem. The spec[0] is 46 pages long and you are granted the rights to reproduce, distribute, and implement it free of charge.

Want to know how UEFI works? The spec[1] is a 2,899 page PDF which you have to pay to use in any way, including writing an implementation.

Every copy of this specification should be found and burned. The ashes should be buried deep in a dark place and the earth above salted.

@benjancewicz It is time to get more independent. We need more platforms, like #PeerTube for example.

FOSS project seeks developers

The Aardwolf-Social project aims to be a Fediverse-powered alternative to Facebook. The project -feels- super close to being demo-ready, but needs a bit of a push.

Once we get the #Rustlang backend properly connected to the web front-end (nothing too crazy here) it may just work!

Templates are using the Rust Templates (#ructe), and have already started to be copied over.

github.com/Aardwolf-Social/aar

I can/will fork this elsewhere if you are anti GitHub/GitLab.

#Aardwolf.

Wie genau hilft man den Leuten in Rojava nochmal, wenn man auf einer Demo in Berlin gehen die Versammlungsauflagen verstößt und Bengalis zündet und sich vermummt? Also der Nahost Konflikt ist kompliziert, da blicke ich einfach nicht immer durch.
