Why do old farts always drag the youth, especially children, into their own goddamn wars 😠 🇺🇦☮️❤️

She is so great and one of my personal heroes: Margaret Hamilton recalls her life as a programming pioneer in one of her rare interviews.

This was the coldest winter that most people remember on Naxos. It finally should be over in a few days. Funny how I remember plans last autumn of how *this* winter we'll go for picnics by the sea ... and now we're just saying: "Maybe we could turn the heating on just for a little bit? Maybe we could not think about the war for a little bit?"

Almost 17M spent already since the start of the #UkraineRussiaWar from #EU states on #Russian Fossil Fuels. Indirectly funding the war.

Habe heute diesen Text auf dem Kontaktformular des Bundeskanzlers eingetütet. Herr Scholz liest sowas wohl kaum selber, aber wenn sich genug Leute melden, bewegt sich vielleicht was. Stillsitzen kann ich nicht mehr, wenn den Mördern jeden Tag Millionen in die Hände gegeben werden.

Украинские разработчики пишут, что Steam приостановил им выплаты.

Ещё раз - Steam приостановил выплаты разработчикам ИЗ УКРАИНЫ.

Во время войны.

Вот это я удачно вчера купил бандл украинских инди, зашибись поддержал разработчиков 🤦

У меня это в голове не укладывается. Гейб, ты воюешь не туда!

Hey @valvesoftware @Steam are you okay?

My country was attacked by Russia and because of this you decided to deprive me of a source of income?

Meeting Mauro for in town is always a breath of fresh air, a semplance of "normal" even in hopeless times. And work gets done.

Herr Bundeskanzler Scholz, wieviele tote Zivilisten ist ihnen russisches Gas für Deutschland wert?

Drehen Sie endlich den Gashahn zu! Und drehen Sie damit auch dem Krieg den Geldhahn zu! Am Anfang des Krieges hatte Ihre Regierung gesagt, dass die Reserven für den ganzen Winter reichen. Ziehen Sie jetzt die Konsequenzen, hören Sie auf mit Mördern Geschäfte zu machen!

Woke up this morning with a feeling of "nothing bad in the world". Obviously only until I rememebered the war.

In the last days I had followed @zloygik in Mykolaev (aka Nikolaev). At night when I went to bed, the account was quiet for 5h, so now I rushed to check if there is some sign of life. Which there was. There was also a link:

"Одесса молится на Николаев." novayagazeta.ru/articles/2022/

Is the "Home" mastodon timeline expected to be unreliable?

From an account that I am following (@zloygik) there are the
latest few posts there, then a bunch of them are missing, then again
some are there. That account is on a different instance. So, is this
normal?

Wie Klimakrise und Russland-Krieg zusammenhängen

Die #Klimakrise und der #Krieg #Russland's gegen die #Ukraine hängen zusammen: „Denn mit dem Geld, das Russland mit dem Export von fossilen Brennstoffen verdient, wird der Krieg finanziert“, sagt Switlana Krakowska, die Leiterin der ukrainischen Delegation des UNO-Weltklimarats. Mit science.ORF.at sprach die #Klimaforscherin über den Krieg, die Klimakrise – und über Pläne für den Wiederaufbau.

Σήμερα φάγαμε fakes για μεσημεριανό, νηστεία ντε.

So I created my account ~19 hours ago. I followed 44 accounts, none of
which I knew personally or communicated with before. I posted 4 "toots"
(including "hello world").

In response I got:

I can say, it's a pretty open and welcoming bunch around here!

Mind blown here: For years I've been using par(1) to reformat paragraphs in vim. Which does an aesthetically pleasant job, but the documentation and configuration is mildly speaking *nuts*. And today for no obvious reason I came across the vim-builtin "gq" command. Which does it all and with some extra magic.

Опять война. Опять никому не нужные, ничем не вызванные страдания, опять ложь, опять всеобщее одурение, озверение людей.

Что же это такое? Во сне это или наяву? Совершается что-то такое, чего не должно, не может быть, — хочется верить, что это сон, и проснуться.

Но нет, это не сон, а ужасная действительность.

So far I've followed a bunch of accounts I've seen on the public
timeline of sdf and bsd.network. Not sure if I have the best way to
do this. My goal is to be able to read the interesting stuff from
both these instances (minus a few of those that are uninteresting to
me).

It seemed a bit much manual labour at first, but I guess I don't
need to do it so often. The advantage of looking at the public timeline
is that I might spot any new people/accounts. Let's see how it will
work out for now.
