The issue with people not understanding filesystems isn't that people don't understand filesystems; it's that for decades now the leading technology companies have been executing a campaign to strip basic computer literacy from everyone who isn't college educated, allowing the formation of a cult of tech and the mysticization of the process in order to justify monopolies and oligopologies with outsized influence over daily life for everyone on Earth.

I wonder if is a thing, and if not, maybe it's worth starting to make it a thing.

Currently been listening to a bit of early to mid career Talking Heads. This album is particularly impressive... the one (relatively) weak song on this album was also one of its best known songs, so the whole thing is worth a listen. But this track is one of its stand-outs. youtube.com/watch?v=K5H1nEP2wX

Also at what age do they learn to run to the goddamn toilet when they feel sick?

2am: hear noise in the hall "mum I feel <bllaarrrg>"

*Child continues standing still, staring*
"mum I threw <warrrgarbl>"


*Continues standing still* <barf>

"Also it's all through my bed..."

Kiddos brought home some kind of stomach virus. Jesus Christ I haven't been this sick since I was a teenager. Nothing better than getting up all night to nurse stricken kids/change bedding/etc, then getting it yourself about 4am

Please boost for reach. So, anyone that is working on FOSS projects like web apps, sites, Linux apps, desktop environments, or other user interfaces, please let me know if you want them tested for accessibility. I can do both CLI, web, and GUI testing, and app testing on Android. I'm running Debian (on a ChromeBook but that's not too important), so just give me the name of the package, or the URL of the site or app. I can also do Flatpak!

git's sha256 support is now apparently fully usable for new repositories. And not supported by github or their ilk

So, if you don't want your new program to get uploaded by someone to github (and ingested into their copilot copyright-bypass tool), you could start the project with

git init --object-format=sha256

I just added a rule to mastodon.nz: No commercial accounts. Business entities can pay for someone to host a mastodon instance if they really want an account on the Fediverse for ###### SEO reasons 😡

I have no issue with anyone talking work on their personal account. :birdheart:

Still can't get enough of the first track on this

If you like but you're not sure about this is probably a good place to jump in. What a flow

Judge Dread - Ska Fever

This guy got zero airplay back in the day because most of his songs are *filthy*, but turned out to be a huge hit regardless.
