Les kits DIY de télés CRT sont arrivés !
Dont un pour dame @DarkerEighties :)

Ils ont étés un peu secoués pendant le transport avec un peu de classe mais rien de méchant
Ça se répare avec un peu de colle :)

Филип Джонс Гриффитс. Северная Ирландия, 1973 г.

Philip Jones Griffiths. Northern Ireland, 1973 Пластиковый щит, за которым скрывается человек в каске покрыт царапинами, потертостями, следами ударов. Мутная покореженная поверхность растворяет индивидуальные черты, превращая их в обобщенный образ солдата. Никаких деталей, никаких подробностей, никакой личности. Это анонимность противника – топливо для ненависти в любых уличных протестах. Камера фотографа находится на той же стороне что и сила, от которой защищаются щитами. Если бы жесткие, острые, ненавистные, агрессивные и отчаянные взгляды оставляли физический след в пространстве, то это были бы новые царапины на щите, новые следы ударов. И чем больше таких ударов, тем менее видимым становится человек. Наверное, это одна из самых точных и самых выразительных фотографий о насилии.

We’re out there 10 minutes - just enough time to get enough dirt off the cars to have to finish the entire job otherwise they will look ridiculous- and the boys complain they’re cold.

Mum brings them in for warm drinks and so I’m stuck outside cleaning them (and freezing) on my own.

I hate my life.

So... the EU considers DNS critical infrastructure. So far so good.
"As a consequence of this directive’s quite broad definition of DNS, every organisation or individual running their own DNS will have to comply by registering their DNS service with ENISA, the EU agency for Cyber Security."



“…That means there are [mechanics in vans] driving around in the Netherlands, working for Dutch telecommunications companies, And if they want to know what they have to do, they have to set up a call to [customer care in] Vietnam, and someone in Vietnam will tell them what they have to do ... ”

i heard of a fediverse goodreads thing recently, what was that called, please?

Given the enormous size and impact of the renewable energy transition in the next two decades, you'd expect most technical jobs to relate to renewable energy in some ways.

My job, and professional training, relates to the efficient distribution of cat pictures.

I also think it's no coincidence that the figure labeled "All talk, no action" is a dead ringer for Ursula von der Leyen ...

Twelve ways to justify climate delay.

In this diagram, I'm firmly on the left-side of the spectrum, ranging from Perfectionism to "Change is Impossible". Can you identify yourself? Canonical source seems to be twitter.com/ChrisLianHo/status

#darktable 3.4 will not be shipped with translations for Chinese, Arabic, Hindi and Bengali, even though they are among the 10 most spoken languages in the World, for lack of complete translation.

Some translation like zh_CN are "only" missing 1257 strings (meaning the rest is already done).

To help translators, we have put up a short guide: github.com/darktable-org/darkt

It's not too late to help translating darktable 3.4.1.

When someone says "blockchain" and "election", tar and feather them before kicking them out of your town or country. Democracy is not a startup pitch. It deserves the paper trail.

US politics 

Everyone has something to hide. The shy Tory (UK Conservative) /Republican voter demonstrates this. Secrets aren't always crimes but they can contain reputational damage. Which can make those secrets leverage. Thinking about this more I think that you can use this as an argument for privacy and encryption of data. People fear the consequences of judgement of people in their community. They don't want to feel uncomfortable and judged.

Anyone familiar with a community or fuck it even some AI shit that is good at deciphering handwriting?

I can read everything except the year. 1907?

I've hit a tipping point with polarization, from politics to technology to every day life. I have no appetite for it anymore. I am so exhausted.

People become so willfully ignorant toward perspectives of those who disagree with them that they live in fantasy worlds that are incompatible with one-another.

I've done much reflection on my own behavior during this time. And I've changed from it. I intend to write about that a lot more in the future, especially with how it impacts my activism.

So, should we:

Address the fact that the software industry is a pile of bullcrap that could collapse in any moment.

Or rename our branches to "main" and call it a day.

In the midst of a climate & ecological emergency the EU is about to lock nearly €400bn into a new agricultural policy, completely ignoring climate & biodiversity. And no-one even reports about it!? Even a child knows this isn't how democracy is supposed to work. #FutureofCAP twitter.com/HarrietBirdlife/st
