@sir an interesting video arguing for children's independence was released just before you made this post: youtube.com/watch?v=ul_xzyCDT9

The same guy also made a video against NA zoning laws: youtube.com/watch?v=bnKIVX968P

Holy shit


The maintainer of harfbuzz got fucking black bagged by Iran and they're threatening his friends and family

@sir This would be great. Many younger people in the Netherlands don't have a credit card. The ING for examples requires that you earn at least €650 a month and be at least 18 years old to get one, so many high school students (and others who fall outside of this category) can't get an sr.ht subscription without let's say borrowing their parrents credit card.

@sir Ah so you always need a prefix, even when the list has only one repo attached to it?

@sir holy cow, yass! I love it!

How do you detect the correct repo to apply the patch to?

Announcing the SourceHut project hub 🎉


I don't usually explicitly ask for shares, but this is a big deal for SourceHut - the project hub solves one of our major goals for the alpha. Please help spread the word ❤️

Two years ago I wrote a little tool[1] to help me manage my nginx configuration. I'm pretty sure it hasn't been used by more than 10 people since then, but that didn't stop a Debian Developer from packaging[2] it. :blobcatheart:

1. dev.yorhel.nl/nginx-confgen
2. packages.debian.org/search?key

@sir can confirm, constantly using this reference for the shell I'm building.

@fedilab Injected in the feed maybe? I don't like new version popups when opening an app.

@ayo @nllgg This event looks very cool! I'm hoping to be there.

Which of these talks is yours?

@sir I like the 'Authentic' and 'Private' prefixes. It makes it clearer to someone who is new to PGP what is going on.

@sir So I always assumed that your [skip ci] was just an example of what bad ui could be. At least I thought until I scrolled through the history of this file: github.com/mesonbuild/meson/co

This resulted in me searching for this post again. Who ever thought this was a good idea?

How can WhatsApp really call itself end-to-end encrypted when it repeatedly shows popups like this prompting users to enable Google Drive backups?

@quad I had the same issue while helping someone setup Windows 10. Enabling airplane mode also allows you to create a local account.
