random manga recommendation 

Do you like JJBA? Do you have a thing for Hokuto no Ken? How about doctors? Then give Super Doctor K a read, an 80ies manga about an illegal doctor who can punch as well as performing ridiculous surgeries. All that while being on the run from goons that try to use his superpowers for evil.

It's absolutely ridiculous and I can only imagine how painful it must have been to translate all that jargon...

Via Snowden's twitter (https://twitter.com/Snowden/status/1277727809096605697): In what may be the first known case of its kind, a faulty facial recognition match led to a Michigan man’s arrest for a crime he did not commit

https://www.nytimes.com/2020/06/24/technology/facial-recognition-arrest.html

Alarming, to say the least.

Imagine a future where the recommendation is to upload as many photos of yourself to The Cloud[tm] to minimize the chance that some facial recognition will flag you as a false positive. A bit like people taking loans to build their credit rating.

Also, this part:

«Mr. Williams’s lawyer, (...), said that her client is “lucky,” “He is alive (...) He is a very large man. My experience has been, as a defense attorney, when officers interact with very large men, very large black men, they immediately act out of fear.”»

JFC. I'm glad there's a pond between us, “land of the free”.

I'm having a “Steam moment” with Bandcamp. I haven't pirated music since I discovered how much of the stuff I like is on there. It's just easier and faster to buy it.

Now, can we get one for books please?

Legal review in #openSUSE is a slow process (euphemism...) but sometimes you find interesting things.

e.g:
Did you know that the #Qt base module ships code that can only be distributed in its original zip file (code.qt.io/cgit/qt/qtbase.git/ QTBUG-81503) or that #CSound releases contain code that cannot be distributed (github.com/csound/csound/issue) ?

Some pretty good tips in there! So good, they seem obvious in the hindsight.
