Just a reminder: taking care of (and repairing) your electronics is a great way of making them last longer.

Latest in the Linux phone adventures. The Nokia N900 running postmarketOS! Very cool!

Make software lighter so that we can buy “weaker” more affordable computers.

ok i wrote another update on the state of Reform, i guess the last one before campaign launch mntre.com/media/reform_md/2020

Capitalism can only justify labor which profits. Structures or institutions that cannot sufficiently monetize their operations whither and die except on a volunteer basis. Scarcity-immune goods and services, such as digital media, can then only be justified with the introduction of scarcity. A great deal of labor goes into introducing and maintaining scarcity where there is none, which can only exist by taking its own share of the wealth it extracts, cementing this gatekeeping as a shared interest between the owning class and this segment of the working class. Thus ads become a form of rent, the flicker of your eyeballs a form of payment for materials which have no per-use cost, and every plea to disable your ad-blocker comes from a hostage. Because capitalism charges us for survival, we find ourselves obliged to maintain the institutions that keep us employed, for in them we see the only means of living.

And, even more rare, all calendar standards will agree with this palindrome:

EU (DD/MM/YYYY)
US (MM/DD/YYYY)
ISO (YYYY/MM/DD)

I'm thinking I have to plan something special for that day :D

In many ways, Mastodon's design philosophy is built in opposition to previous, commercial social media platforms, but one significant way in which its design converges with them is the timeline — a continuous, real-time stream of updates.

But streaming is built for compulsion, and with that comes increasing energy consumption. So how might we build for sociability without the negative effects associated with streaming?

Was having some writer's block and decided to get as ridiculous as possible. Sampled tooth brushing, dishes clanging and a cheesy harpsichord synth...
