Is there a lemmy mode for emacs?

(Friendly mutton chop whiskers optional, of course.)…


If you think they are just a CDN then you need to do some reading.



Finding a web host, avoiding Cloudflare

How the heck do I avoid Cloudflare when selecting a web host, please? I was considering getting a DigitalOcean “droplet” and running something in that, but I’m pretty sure they’ll be inside Cloudflare’s evil embrace. …


The privacy issues?

The fact that they defend hate speech? Terrorism?

That when they have an outage so does a good proportion of the www?

I suppose executing recruitment agencies is out of the question?

Ban ATS’ (seriously, how could centralising all of everyone’s personal information ever go wrong?!)

Have competent people working in Personnel departments (and thank you, I am not a Human “Resource”, that’s just your slave master mentality shining through)

And, yeah, executing recruitment agents. Sorry, but it has to be done, for the future of humanity. (Or maybe it doesn’t? Are they actually able to interbreed with human beings?)


In other words they’re testing what the Zurich city public transport system has been doing for years (as well as trams taking power from overhead cables, some bus routes do too)?


1 TB is enough for anybody.


Controlling heating

I have a (non-automated) gas fired boiler supplying my heating. It comes on before I wake up so the house is nice and warm for me when I crawl out of bed. …



In summary: ‘I like X. I do not like Y. Therefore X is the greatest and Y is rubbish.’

Okay then.



That was published in 2014. I do wonder what you’re up to in dredging up old news like that.


Allwinner open source? Yeah, we’ve seen that before https://linux-sunxi.org/GPL_Violations


P = Penis, NP = No Penis?

I just can’t tell from the title. A summary would be nice so that people have information to go on to help them decide whether they’re interested in downloading and reading the PDF.


Even supposedly educated people don’t get it. My doctor wanted me to send him some health information by email a month ago. It’s a good job my blood pressure is under control or I might have exploded.


I don’t own one. I’d like to but I can’t think of a practical use for one (for me). The only possible use I came up with was printing a case for my Raspberry Pi and I decided that it was cheaper to buy a commercially available case for £10 than paying a few hundred for a 3d printer.


I would just like to say

To many software developers who happen to happen upon this, the community “!enoughvowshspam” could read as “not enoughvowshspam” because the exclamation mark is often used as negation. I am quite amused…


You don’t have to look hard at all - petrol was hard to get hold of and is approaching record high prices, random foodstuffs aren’t available, you can’t see a doctor for love nor money, Brexit (obviously), Covid (obviously), idiotic decisions taken by Tory govt. that seems to have no clue how to govern and no concern for the state of the country of its citizens (most obviously of all). But never mind, Princess Di was lovely wasn’t she.

Can't update package (Linux+apt)

Github hiding repo URLs

I hate github with a passion. I have a slightly different name for it that I won’t use here because I’m a polite c**t. …


I was thinking that if the police or someone like that got involved then it would be better to have the entire unaltered thing available, so that rather than delete it from the db it should just not appear in the front end.


Might you not want to be able to preserve the offending post so that the poster can be brought to justice?



Why is Ubuntu packaging so shit?

Of course, that presupposes that you agree with me that it is shit. Okay, well, if you don’t, you don’t. …


Split Window

I know how to split windows (C-x 2 or C-x 3), and I know I can give a C-u number precursor to that to make the new window have that many lines, but is there (simple) way to “split window at current point”, which… does what it suggests (splits the window at the line where the cursor is)? I can’t …


K-9 Mail replacement?

I’ve been using K-9 for some years now. Today, some idiot (i.e. me) decided to update it through F-Droid. The new version is… horrible. It feels like MS Lookout or some such sh…thing. …


How to re-jig screens when I disconnect one

Setup: Ubuntu, Openbox, notebook, occasionally an external screen. …
