So I'm in a tough position, my hours got cut at work cause they decided they didn't want to pay out payroll for already scheduled shifts. I'm currently looking for a 3rd job (or replacement for the retail one) but in the meantime I really need some extra work.

I do have a commission queue, but if you have deadlines I can accommodate for it - especially if it's for a Christmas gift. I can fast track those :)

Can anyone recommend a reliable hosting company in the EU, that doesn't block IP's based on US policy? It wouldn't hurt, if the server doesn't take hours to spin-up, and is reasonably fast. I'm familiar with most of the common offerings - any tips, based on actual experience?

It just hit me: What Facebook, Instagram or Twitter will never accomplish, Mastodon apparently has.

Segregation at it's finest.

This is what Trumps wettest dreams are made of; on Mastodon, a single person gets to decide, whether, thousands, or even millions, are able to communicate with a certain social or interest group, or even individual - the admin.

Future, here we come!

"Anyone with the power to do so should urgently step in to slow things down and ask some hard questions."

Anyone here used before? "A peer-to-peer stack for code collaboration".

Happy to see that @sir's is now the top search result for "plaintext email"!

(At least on :duckduckgo:. It probably varies more on Google)

Tired of fighting against a bloated word processor when writing your latest report, novel, technical documentation or blog post?

Maybe that's the sign you're ready to consider using a lightweight markup language...

It just hit me: No GPU-powered rendering in Blender, the best (open source) 3D creation suite on the market - for Mac OS users. It's time to go Linux. It's time to go PantherX. I'm excited for it, like a little kid for Christmas. Go team, make it happen!

If you're looking for a new node backend framework, look no further: - Kudos to Kamil, the brains behind this beast!

Mastodon is getting invaded by spammy, fake accounts. Can't we come-up with a global block-list, which everyone can subscribe to? Not to curb free-speech, but to reduce the amount of porn-girls. I'd say, this would be relatively easy to determine, and agree on.

Distrowatch gives you a pretty good idea, just how fractured open source really is:

Why do all ISPs have to be so fucking bad at their job

"Some communities like to think of themselves as “perfectly tolerant”. This means that they would tolerate people that take actions to make marginalized people uncomfortable. When a community does this, they are actually being intolerant, and enabling abusers."

At last, someone in the FOSS community took the time to state the obvious: bigots are not welcome. Thank you.

Why is software created using taxpayers’ money not released as Free Software?

* Tax savings: Similar applications don't have to be programmed from scratch every time.

* Collaboration: Major projects can share expertise and costs.

* Serving the public: Applications paid by the public should be available for everyone.

* Fostering innovation: With transparent processes, others don't have to reinvent the wheel.
