I wish there was some feature which told websites do not track me. If only someone thought of that… 🙃

Thanks for the-federation.info! No instance for me, sadly. If I had more free time, I’d set one up at tilde.fun…

Sorry! makes wind and crackling noises …an’t read you, are you krrrssshh medium?

Hm, sadly the same arguments as all the other systemd haters have. Nothing new. Read this:


Why don’t you use an older version of Kodi?

Are all of the plugins’ issues reported?

How is it bloated? Most people saying it’s bloated don’t even know what they say. Does it have many SLOC? Is it slow? Does it do too much? If the latter, why is it bloat and do you know it’s actually quite modular? What exactly is software bloat for you?

Is this the continuation of Maps.me or a completely new codebase?

Windows users: see, Linux is shit, they have 7y old root exploits!

Finally Lenovo’s selling Linux on their X1, too. Hope they’ll give us a driver for their fingerprint sensor. Dell and HP didn’t manage to do that, either…

The company making this calls themselves Talon Precision Optics nowadays and you can hook up your tablet or smartphone to your scope. …
