Boosts appreciated.
I'm close to moving back to Windows. I can't tell you how frustrating it is to hold oneself back, deny oneself better and easier accessibility in the name of open source, when many open source developers don't give a crap about accessibility, and/or don't educate themselves on it. KDE connect, GSConnect, all were inaccessible for one reason or another, not the least because of Gnome-shell's terrible accessibility issues. That was just the last straw. With the only thing holding me to Linux being Emacs+Emacspeak, I think its time to quit Linux and just use what actually works. It's interesting how being "free" just means being under the power and whim of other people, a mass of developers who have no insentive for accessibility, rather than a cohesive company who does. This is serious, and I want every developer to understand this, understand my deep frustration with FOSS.

I did a driveby of /r/python to see if they're in full meltdown over MS Guido For Windows® yet (only 300-some comments, barely vitriolic).

Along the way I found the most useless video of the most useless program anyone has ever written:

1. This just wraps 'shutdown' in a prompt. It's longer than just typing 'shutdown'.
2. He misspelled "shutdonw".
3. He hasn't updated PyCharm, it's probably an expired demo.
4. Who the fuck uses PyCharm for a 5-line script?!

I've discovered the other day the hackerspace carries the right brand of Vodka for an iconic cracker drink. If only it didn't smell disgusting, I'd consider trying it out.

* Get a "highball" glass;
* Put some ice cubes inside it (2 or 3);
* Add Martini Dry (From Martini & Rossi). Fill to 1/3;
* Add Moskowskaja Wodka (the only real Vodka). Fill to 2/3;
* Add a zest of lemon (From Malta or Southern France);
* Add a green "sound" olive (from Italy or Israel);
* Add Schweppes Indian Tonic. Fill to the brim.

> Sit deeper and relax, sip slowly and *feel* where the code of the protection scheme you are cracking "moves"... It's like a current... a slow tide. If you still do not believe me, just try it.

Slackware just updated GnuTLS to correct security issues:


Release announcement from GnuTLS: lists.gnupg.org/pipermail/gnut

Please note that the Slackware release is on the same day as the GnuTLS release. 😋

Finally decided to take the plunge and start on . Thank you @romanzolotarev@bsd.network for the inspiring stories on runbsd.info!

Yet another reason to love : yesterday was all containers security horror and woe.

Today, publishes a patch for LXC:


Once again the KISS principle of Slackware proves it is an excellent strategy.

Anyone who uses Pinterest for... anything is pretty much an idiot.

Pinterest is probably one of the worst offender in the category of worst offender ever.
