I only read the article to find out which bits of tracking are illegal. I’m still unclear on this.

It’s like saying ‘illegal sugar in Cola’ - I get that it’s an intelligent sentence, but it sounds off.

a concrete breach of user trust

Can’t make a breach of trust if nobody trusts you.

‘vhost’ is the word I needed to search for apparently.

Just found ‘geminid’ here. Looks like it’ll do the job.

How to I run two Gemini sites on one server?

Port 1965 is only going to one place, so how can I make sure it’s going to the right place? …

I don’t drive. I looked it up, and it’s described as a safety feature, but that might be wrong, if machines can’t manage high-beams better than any humans. That said, when I’m a passenger, drivers have told me that plenty of humans are not managing their high beams well.

This is the question I asked, twice. It’s also the original question asked by Stallman.

I’m not sure how you want to show evidence that the question I’m asking is not “the question”. It’s a question, it’s one I’ve asked, and one you’re apparently incapable of answering.

If this isn’t the point you’re making, then don’t be surprised when other people’s questions - including Stallman’s - are not there to facilitate your points.

Neither does a 20 year old feature in this story,

The story pertains to Stallman precisely because of his initial demand for clarity.

I didn’t characterise any story. I asked a simple question, to return to the matter in question, rather than side tracking. This is more side tracking.

Do you, or do you not believe that saying someone who slept with a twenty year old has committed “sexual assault” could be misleading?

For the intent of figuring out what he said, he did not say that such-and-such actions are defensible.

Rather than talking in big circles round the issue, it’s better to just look at the truth of the matter. Do you, or do you not believe that saying someone who slept with a twenty year old has committed “sexual assault” could be misleading?

he defended a former colleague against allegations of child abuse.

You can’t just believe everything you read on Twitter.

The source is quite public, so it’s better to go to that source.

The current information commissioner, Elizabeth Denham, is due to leave her post in October. Dowden said that under the regime ‘too many businesses and organisations are reluctant to use data – either because they don’t understand the rules or are afraid of inadvertently breaking them’.

This is bollocks. I had to work with GDPR for my work, and it broadly went like this:

Are you racially profiling children for profit?


Okay, good to go

Once every 3 months someone asks us to delete their data with us “because GDPR”, and it takes like 2 minutes.

Nice page.

Those are some big music files for a raspberry pi.

Gus is out of date - post your site

The ‘gemini universal search’ hasn’t been updated since December. …


I like that it’s quality, rather than a fix for web pages.

Like if you’re going vegan you can ‘fix’ your diet with vegan faux-bacon, or you can just learn to cook a proper stew.

I really wish I could play in my own game. I made it to eradicate everything that wasn’t fun in play, and the feedback’s been broadly positive on that front.

Wire looked nice, but I stopped using it after they persistently dragged their feet on federation.

Git discussion

Once something with federation gains popularity, the discussion may be over, as we won’t have to talk about jumping ship every year. I’m not sure it’s doable yet, but I’m sure that once it takes hold it’ll last, just like email.

I still wonder why more people don’t host in other countries to stop these kinds of blocks.

Here in Serbia, a copyright violation requires that you have over 500 copies of something.

If you have the cash for a raspberry pi, it’ll update such lists easily.

I’m usually more of a CLI-guy, but this thing’s beautiful.

I’ve made a collection of RPGs with a git. …


My gf slept straight through the quake :P

It was sublter her in Serbia, but the towers still shook.

There’s some mod-talk about a decentralized plan-B in case /r/wsb is shut down.

A new lemmy instance sounds good, if someone can put up with those server costs.

Sorry about the last post - I pasted from the wrong clipboard. …


LaTeX Workflow: 1 Year On

After a year of using Latex as my writing and layout tool for a homebrew RPG, and writing stories for WW’s Vampire, here are the main results and differences: …

BIND is an open source RPG written in LaTeX, so anyone can hack on it, add things, or rewrite the system. …
