Regular reminder that "embrace, extend, extinguish" was invented by Microsoft.

Now, Microsoft says it is "embracing" Linux and open source in general.

Be afraid. Be very afraid.

The truth is, git is extremely simple to use, as long as you don't do anything with it.

Yeah, we are all pretty much raving lunatics around here.

Also: geeks, nerds, queers, trans and assorted weirdoes. And cat lovers. Adorable people one and all.

Maxwell Epstein sentencing 

What I am trying to say is this, so hear me out for a minute.

I am absolutely, 100% convinced, that it would help A LOT of rich, famous & powerful people if Maxwell was to disappear as quickly as Epstein and take her secrets to the grave with her, as he did.

Dead people don't talk. That's a fact.

Also, Maxwell was Epstein accomplice and enabler, she has names, places, and everything else. That is also a Fact.

The conclusion is left to the reader.

Maxwell Epstein sentencing 

"Guards at the federal prison where Ghislaine Maxwell awaits her sentencing for her role in an elaborate child sexual abuse case have placed her on suicide watch, though she isn’t suicidal, according to court records."

Wasn't Jeffrey Epstein on suicide watch as well?

Not that it really helped.

Of course.

In short, dear reader, save time and money and avoid this massive, jingoisitic "cinematographic" turd.

And that's all I have to say for now.

all around the world. It represents the worst America has to offer the world.

The most ridiculous aspect of it is the fake "inclusion" (a female pilot! an african-american one!) that the US armed forces are so well known for.

And don't get me started on the absolutely moronic technical aspects of it.

I honestly feel ashamed to have wasted money on this movie to the glory of a known Scientologist, a person (and a religion) I have nothing but the utmost contempt for.

Saw "Top Gun: Maverick" the other day with BIL and the whole family.

I'll try to express my feelings on this "movie" as politely as possible.


This movie is complete and utter garbage. It is tripe, shite, an unmitigated trash fire, rife with predictable, illogical dialogues, ridiculous acting and completely idiotic premises.

Furthermore, it is nothing more than a propaganda piece for the US military, an organization that has been sowing misery and chaos [1/2]

Please boost for reach. So, anyone that is working on FOSS projects like web apps, sites, Linux apps, desktop environments, or other user interfaces, please let me know if you want them tested for accessibility. I can do both CLI, web, and GUI testing, and app testing on Android. I'm running Debian (on a ChromeBook but that's not too important), so just give me the name of the package, or the URL of the site or app. I can also do Flatpak!

It'd be a real pity if some hackers got into Crisis Pregnancy Centers and wiped their databases and records, since that data will very likely be used to prosecute people for seeking abortions and other repro healthcare. #BoostsWelcome #BoostsAppreciated
