An interesting read on monetizing content in /#libre networks by creator @eliotberriot:

Very relevant to the growth of projects like , , , , and possibly even / / .

I’m suing the U.S. government for causing the climate change crisis, and I'm 22.

RT Peanuts x Doctor Who mashup always seemed, I dunno, like it makes a lot more sense



Google cooperates with cops and the feds at the drop of a hat

Google is located in the United States, a five eyes country, so that even if they didn't want to cooperate with international cops, they could be compelled to do so

anything you upload to Google services should be considered in the hands of a prosecutor going after your most active and vulnerable friends

don't put yourself or friends at risk. use Google alternatives


Never forget: most of us have been poisoned by a toxic educational system that teaches us systematically that failing at a task or not knowing a correct answer is shameful.

How do you go about finding a relatively cheap modem that supports loopback? No one seems to advertise whether their devices support this or not.

What's it going to take, to be able to host my own identity on my own server, and to be able to use that one account to log in to multiple different federated services (especially based ones like , , etc)?

Looks like I need to enable steam play for all games in steam play settings... but I can't find steam play settings anywhere! When I go into steam settings, there's no section for steamplay in the left column, like there seems to be in screenshots elsewhere... Grrrr... Why is this so hard to find an answer to?!

Trying to use / to play Hat in Time, but there's no launch / install button, and when I do right click > install on it, I just get an error that it's an invalid platform (I'm running the Steam beta).

Has anyone managed to get past this? @catgirl ?
