The youtube-dl DMCA Takedown Notice signifies one thing: overt reliance on centralized service providers creates an inherent vulnerability for the wider community: the service provider itself.

Centralize too much, and the whole thing turns into a giant target.

Not so sure if it was the way i created the , but i had to change the one above a few times, does not seem to respect the last frame from the gif (it were only two frames) i had to add a third frame same as the first one for it to work.

It worked out of the box on the preview (while writing the toot), but not in the timeline once posted.

Really no ssh clone for logged out users?

What a cheap shot, stop shoving that pesky gh cli tool down our throats. 😡

> You’ve heard of the hacker slogan “move fast and break things”? Solarpunk should move quietly and plant things. Don’t ask permission from a state beholden to oligarchs, and definitely don’t expect those oligarchs to do any of this for you. Guerilla gardening is the model, but look further. Guerilla solar panel installation. Guerilla water treatment facility restoration. Guerilla magnificent temple to the human spirit construction. Guerilla carbon sequestration megastructure creation.

"We moved to GitHub because everyone's already there"

"We shut down the mailing lists because most of our users prefer to use GitLab in their web browser"

"We're rewriting in Rust because we don't really have any non-x86_64 users"

"We're leaving IRC because Discord is more user-friendly"

What all of these arguments have in common is that they exclude people, centralize infrastructure, and eschew free software for proprietary solutions, all in the name of some ill-defined measure of "progress".

This is magic, I'm astonished ...

#Browsh a fully-modern text-based browser. It renders anything that a modern browser can; #HTML5 , #CSS3 , #JS, video and even #WebGL .

Wouldn't use it in a daily basis though, at least not over more traditional options like w3m and lynx but still, it's a technical achievement I can't recommend more

A few days ago, I stumbled onto "The Game Overanalyser" and I really, *really* like his videos, like this one about empathy in game design:

At only 2k views this is *criminally* underrated and more people should know about his stuff!

Open Source and the Sex Industry 

I never thought of this mashup but it is something in the making

"Buttplug is an open-source standards and software project for controlling intimate hardware"

All source code of abandoned software should be open sourced. Manufacturers should be forced to do so on the end of service date.

Interesting #JavaScript #DOM #benchmark between the removeChild method on an Element and the innerHTML property -- given thousands of DOM nodes!

Super happy to have put the effort on this.

angry woke nonsense 

It's not conservative vs liberal
It's not LGBTQ vs cishet
It's not even PoC vs white supremacists

It's RICH vs POOR, and one side is buying propaganda to make us fight over every divide EXCEPT for the class divide. Can we all just step away from each other's throats for ten fucking minutes, kill all of the landlords, and then get back to your regularly scheduled social war?

Normalize talking about how much you're paid with your co-workers.

It is the only way people will truly realize the income disparity between themselves and their just-as-qualified queer and/or BIPoC friends and colleagues.

This should be normal in ever industry. The fact it isn't is actively aiding executives in systemically discriminating against minority groups.

@realcaseyrollins I made this comment on hackernews earlier about the Apple release. It got down to -4 at one point.

I love stories like this. Fascinating look into the early history of the web.
