hate how people see that the bot was disabled and say that it was a good decision because the main instance was somewhat slow and overloaded

this whole situation is just so demotivating man

call me a skeptic but... lil searchin reveals that guilded is also funded by VC dollars so it's just a matter of time before it starts putting the pressure on ponying up dollar dollar bills for its amenities like discord did

what do you mean, "you could've been using intellij to write the code that you're supposed to write instead of spending that time on emacs configuration"? i can't hear you over the sound of i'm dumbfuck

Co-worker said "The more I learn about networking the angrier I get at every piece of technology around me." That's so fucking true it isn't funny.

rambling, discord (-) 

can the classy Hammer and Chisel just *STOP* making dumb stuff like this that can be organized in far better ways and step up on their own platform?

stuff like this just makes me want to push my mutuals to Matrix (or even better, IRC) instances more and more.

I have never heard the term "web 3" used in any context other than trying to sell some cryptocurrency, to the point where I cannot take it seriously at all.

Mozilla’s now director of public policy once asked me, with a straight face, why I was giving them a hard time and holding Mozilla to a higher standard: “we’re just another Silicon Valley tech company.”

But that’s not what you tell people publicly, is it, Mozilla?

Still, it’s time y’all got this.

Mozilla is a half-billion-dollar for-profit corporation – whose CEO makes >$3M/yr – that has a foundation do its PR.

steam deck, right to repair 

Valve has put out a new video showing a teardown of their new Steam Deck console. The thumbnail literally says "You shouldn't do any of this." The video itself explains the (perfectly valid) reasons why, but also shows how to do it properly if you're gonna do it anyway. They also mention that you can buy replacement parts directly from Valve.

This is honestly a really great stance for a hardware manufacturer to take on the Right to Repair movement. WARN, don't restrict.

See, Apple? Is that so hard?
