“Getting bytes to disk more quickly”—the story of optimizing substitute download speed in #GNU #Guix:
omg i did it.
https://unix.lgbt is open for registration as a public BETA.
It's a pubnix, a public access computer with servers, social spaces and programming tools to create and have fun together as a community!
So far it offers HTTP, Gemini, IRC, multiple userlands and shells and a BBS protocol.
It is still quite bare-bones and the BBS client and package manager is still a work in progress.
If anyone is working on a pubnix and would like to start a pubnix network (kinda like tildeverse). Let me know I wanna do that too :)
Here is a 3min video speedpainting timelapse of an artwork I painted last September. I hope you'll like it!

With this whole RMS/FSF thing, I'm worried about how my icon and even possibly my username might be seen.
I named myself emacsen at age 19, after the idea of the GNU philosophy, and that I liked the way the word sounded.
The floating GNU became my icon when I got very into meditation.
But maybe with everything going on, it's time I changed them?
Please explain why in the replies!
We are calling for RMS to be removed from all leadership positions in the FOSS community, including the FSF and GNU, and for the FSF board to resign. Join us. https://rms-open-letter.github.io/
The worst part about RMS being back on the board of the FSF (from my perspective, YMMV) is that this submarine bullshit of "hey, guess who's back" undermines the very foundation of trust and openness that the FSF is supposed to foster.
"Don't trust corporations with your private data or they'll do bad things with it" rings fucking hollow when "trust us to be above board with our openness" is met with an end-run announcement that someone who has lost trust is back on the board.
Fun fact: I immediately block anyone with "anti <insert skin colour here>" in their bio. Same is true for "anti <insert ethnicity here>". To hate complete strangers for things that they cannot change about themself, often the way they were born, is disgusting.
Knock it off. I don't care how much of a woke enby lesbian christian gamer mother leftist autistic anthro brony furry you are. No one gets a free pass on racism, no matter how oppressed you think you are.

One of the reasons that allegations come out all at once about a prominent person is that people who have social capital can use it to silence critics.
They make them feel isolated and powerless, it's part of their strategy, and it works until enough revelations come out that it becomes safe to speak out because you're no longer isolated.
JW Lees Harvest Ale is my favorite beer of all time, with the second favorite being the Dogfish Head Raison d'Extra, and third being (not surprisingly) the Raison D'Etre.
The JW Lees is a Barley wine.
The Raison D'Etre is not a barley wine, but is quite similar, and equally complex.
