@Merristasis No worries, this shit is everywhere and most places have good and bad sides that are completely unrelated

@Merristasis that said I think an image board or forum of sorts could be interesting, especially because of the ability to have longer, more nuanced conversations

@Merristasis The first post i looked at was about the pros of national socialism and how hitler was actually also a nazbol if you just read mein kampf. One click away from the frontpage, yikes.

"EARN IT" act. What a lame and pretentious name to start with.

My TL;DR:
US want to hold content providers legally accountable for the contents their users post, PLUS they want to take away end-to-end encryption to the big companies using it (e.g. whatsapp).

I find it deeply disturbing, especially in times like that.
I hope this will will bring people closer to federated and distributed/decentralized networks.
Which is a good thing on its own, btw.

So i discovered last night that i can't pause an octoprint job and then disconnect the printer and expect it to resume, time to spend more time printing today i guess.

On the bright side though, i do now know that what i made fits and works for what i want to do so that's nice

Uighurs that were put in concentration camps are now being forced to make products at factories including for Apple, Nike, and Dell...

“The Washington Post visited a factory mentioned in the report , which produces trainers for sports giant Nike. It said it resembled a prison, with barbed wire, watchtowers, cameras and a police station.”

So now that brexit has sort of happened I've been seeing a lot of people on twitter calling for "nexit" where they want the netherlands to leave as well and I just can't get my head around how people in my country look at the clusterfuck that is brexit and go "yeah that's something I want"

Not a bad thing per se, they do look quite scenic sometimes. I just hadn't really thought about it that much until I started coming there regularly

I'd not been to amsterdam much before my internship but in the last few weeks it's surprised me how many tourists come there

Though i've been making long days and traveling a lot for my internship, i notice it's really good for my mental health and it's really nice
