cohost seems like a silly waste of time and I for one don't mind that the sort of people who think it's a good idea continue to exist somewhere other than on my timeline

a while back when I was getting started with blender someone recommended if I was ever stumped on something I should open a new session, set a timer and see what I could make out of the default cube

good advice tbh

US Pol / privacy rights 

For every other right based on the right to be left alone.

In addition to our right to do sodomy, this does mean that the entire basis for any right to privacy has been struck down by SCOTUS, which does potentially have impact for all online communications.

Nerds posting now about "illegal maths" are, unfortunately, correct to be concerned and this does impact everyone in the US.

US Pol / privacy rights 

The reason that Google et al was happy to donate to anti-abortion causes is because of the legal structures surrounding the Roe decision. In a previous court case, Griswold v Connecticut, which legalised birth control for unmarried women, SCOTUS found that people have a right to medical privacy, which became a right to full privacy full stop. You can imagine why tech tech dystopia wanted to remove privacy rights.
This does have implications . . .

Our lime plant was struggling for a while after repotting but it has bounced back.

Pomegranate is producing buds! Looking forward to the flowers even if it's probably way too young to make fruit.

Our pineapple had enough of the heat! Its stalk has withered to the point that it can't support the fruit anymore, and there's now a noticeable scent which suggests it's nearly ripe. We'll harvest soon, replant the crown, and see what we get in another few years.

Police in Germany seize a Pirate Party's server hosting Cryptpad, following a G7 document leak.

Had they done a moment's research, they would have seen in advance that no documents can be retrieved from a Cryptpad instance, due to its client/server distributed 'zero-knowledge' E2EE implementation. This rendered their operation somewhat pointless, and serves as a robust example of encryption as a functional safeguard of basic human rights:

if I was a supreme court judge and I heard a bunch of people saying how

being a FOSS dev is a life of seeing people reposting how FOSS is trash and devs should be ashamed right next to reposts of FOSS is thankless work and someone should make this less shitty somehow, who could do it, both of them right on your timeline, on the regular

it's cool, it's good
