30 years ago today, Tim Berners-Lee and Robert Cailliau published their formal proposal for the World Wide Web.

This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.

I was afraid to try out git bisect for the longest time and tried to approximate the bad commit myself. From today on, I’ll never look back to those times :)

I was just about to post another link from HN but I managed to stop myself 💪

Asking for help, financial aid 

Hey everyone. I'm currently financially in a bad situation. Lockdown is back, I have no money, I'm disabled and I can't buy food. If you could help, don't feel obliged to, but any help is welcome. Thank you, boosts appreciated. is online again \o/

There I thought this project is going to die of inactivity, but it turns out it was just a technical issue.

Copying ain't stealing,
sure as I'm breathing,
information wants to be free.

The mafia wants us to believe
youtube-dl was made for thieves.
In fact,
it was made for human beings.

We might listen to your pleas,
once you respect our machines,
they belong to us - not you.

Your drivers are mean,
your blobs illicit,
the hardware complicit,
and yet--
it's never stopped piracy.

The real caper is your crimes.
The theft of OUR public domain.
DMCA abuse, attacks on fair use.
Net neutrality and regulatory capture.

Sell it to us fair and square,
your terms are too much to bear,
and until you're playing fair,
fuck off!

Yo ho, yo ho. A pirate's life for me!

This is probably one of the funniest stickers I’ve ever seen at a hacker conference.

Anyone know of a good dictionary and thesaurus that work offline?

“Why not use Zoom, it also has End-to-End encryption!!1! Why does everything have to be free software?!?! :((”

I like the furry community for their musical taste and output. So much good rave/breakcore/dnb music comes from that place.

Basically everything Trent Reznor was involved in turns out to be very powerful coding-zone music
