I don't understand how people can accept getting a laptop "from work" on which they're not allowed to install software.

I personally worked for a big bank and I had a laptop I could do with whatever I want (like running Arch Linux on it). I think most of it comes down to what you personally accept.

REMINDER: Bitcoin has no top because fiat has no bottom.

SpaceX made another first: astronauts are now on their way to the ISS on a flight proven capsule sent by a flight proven booster.

Releasing a client with a name "Bitcoin Core 0.21.0-based Taproot Client 0.1" is a scammer trick. It's not Bitcoin Core.

I suppose if you can't convince people with reason, trick them with dishonesty.

Every now and then I mention https://publiccode.eu/ to people and realize that not everyone has heard about it yet.

Here it is! Sign it, share it, email a politician or something.

"The encrypted messaging app is integrating support for MobileCoin in a bid to keep up with the features offered by its more mainstream rivals."

MobileCoin? Seriously?

Some guru here that is capable of writing a web app that takes a #Twitter username and returns its profile picture with a small #Mastodon logo in the bottom? So that you can download it and update your profile?

I just booked an order for the better than nothing Starlink service, wait and see for now.
Gonna move soon and gonna have to live with a 50 Mb/s ADSL instead of my actual 1 Gb/s fiber connection, no alternatives to Starlink actually!

What does fiat money means, literally?

The term fiat derives from the Latin word fiat, meaning "let it be done"used in the sense of an order, decree or resolution.

The Greek government has chosen #cisco webex for distance education.

For many months, the Ministry of Education had been refusing to publish the contract.

On 22/03, it got published:

- The MoE bought licenses that costed € 2 million - instead of using a #foss solution, e.g. BigBlueButton, that would cost no license fees and would empower the local economy

- The contract permits Cisco to use data of the 1.5 million users of the platform for its own purposes and disclose it to others

#greece

now accepts payments ✌

Only in US for the moment, ROW later this year.

I'm thinking very hard about adopting this CoC for all my projects:
"No Code of Conduct: A Code of Conduct for Adults in Open Source Software"

github.com/domgetter/NCoC

I've actually been in favor of this for the longest time, but (until now) I just didn't add a CoC.

Why the change of heart?
Because the SJW mob is after #RMS again. And they are still WRONG.

If you believe the surveillance capitalist click-driven "journalists" instead of doing proper research, I don't want you near my projects.

This is it, I fell down the hole :)

Installation process forces you to think things upfront. You have to guide the system, not the other way around, loving it <3

In case you missed it, Google Play recently removed the @Tusky Mastodon app without proper explanation.

Tusky is one of the best Android Mastodon apps, with nothing controversial in it at all. It's quite disturbing that Google can and does act like this.

An alternative and much better way of getting Tusky onto your Android device is by using the independent FOSS app store @fdroidorg

You can find instructions for installing F-Droid here: switching.software/replace/goo
