Wondering why noice doesn't have an urban soundscape I can have on in the background.

Realizing I can turn on background audio from GTA 3.

Realizing I live in NYC and can just open up a window.

That's nearly identical to what I've decided to do, use a structured directory.

The tool I'm writing could certainly also use it to curate a private collection.

Today I learned that Germany is a divided nation.

There is Aldi Nord and Aldi Sud.

I'm trying to store metadata tags outside a media file's storage (because I'll then be re-applying them).

When it's one file, it's fine, but when it's multiple files, then I have to do really funky things like create per file folders and things.

I still think that's ultimately better than the text files, but it get gnarly.

I find he appears out of nowhere and asks strange questions.

I hate stuffing large blobs of data in text file formats.

I especially hate stuffing large binary blobs of data in them.

implementing and keeping track of all the chunks and thinking about organizing things back from a tree into a file feels like doing this video in reverse

In all seriousness, I'm having trouble visualizing it in my mind

Brett Kavanaugh argued in 2000, in his defense of Bush in Bush v. Gore, that ballots received after the election day in Florida had to be counted. Now he just wrote an argument for blocking that very thing from happening in Wisconsin with a very dubious legal rationale he's written up.

They're already gearing up to help steal the election in key races--watch the Wisconsin and Nevada legal cases especially

@thufie States collapsing don't often result in a lot of safety for regular people, even in comparison to the system now.

Bad joke 

If had been written by someone in a country near but not in the same one as @civodul the init daemon might have been called malinsois.

You probably heard @RIAA used #DMCA to get @microsoft's @GitHub to remove youtube-dl, but did you know Microsoft funds RIAA as a member? We call on Microsoft (& any organizations who purports to support #FOSS) to resign from RIAA in protest.

There is the System76 Thelio

Large parts of the Thelio are also FLOSS (some of the board and the case I believe).

🤔 What's best for a new desktop computer with GNU/Linux nowadays? I'm looking for performances (CG arts/Krita), only Free/Libre drivers and around 1K€... Hard to find trusty infos... If you have advice/recommendations, pls lmk.👍

@realcaseyrollins

The truth is that you're both correct but in different ways.

Art that takes an enormous upfront expenditure, like a blockbuster summer superhero movie can't easily be made without restrictions that copyright affords.

On the other hand, those same distributors have a commercial interest in selecting material that they prefer.

It's very similar to FLOSS software differs from proprietary software.

The funding model effects what kind of work is produced.

I'm a big Alan Watts fan and personally believe in the Brahman model of the universe.
