uspol, COVID-19 

Never forget this is all because of the greed and lust for power of the people in the executive. If we had properly locked down, with rents and mortgages halted and a UBI, we’d be over the pandemic by now and have had only a fraction of the deaths and chronic sickness.

They literally murdered close to half a million people so far. With nothing to show for, other then billionaires getting even richer.

Oh, I forgot, also a bonus armed resurrection trying to overthrow democracy.

It’s been five days and we’ve had no statement from the President about a terrorist attack on the Congress, other than telling the terrorists that he loves them.

Trying to simultaneously learn Swift and a bit about Gemini by implementing a barebones Mac client. Right now just fetches and displays the raw result. Doesn't look at status codes or format the page. Error handling is minimal. Binary only 302 KB so far!

Reminder that Shopify hosts the official Trump store and profiteers from selling shirts, hats and flags to terrorists.

virus, framing 

"this virus is tricky.."

shut the fuck up, this virus is a deadly communicable disease and everyone's been royally fucking up

don't make it sound cutesy, we've been pretending that this virus isn't anything to be worried about for just about a year and are paying the price

a lot of people are actively fucking this up and we don't need to cut them any slack

Dear web developers and admins,
please stop embedding Google's hideous #ReCaptcha into your websites. Its algorithm is faulty, forcing regular users to click dozens or even hundreds of fire hydrants, bicycles, or traffic lights each day. It puts a 'suspicious activity' flag on users who won't obey to Google's business model - such as people who don't sign into Chrome, use anonymity VPNs, or use browser extensions to suppress common tracking mechanisms. Enough is enough. Stop it.

The COVID-19 bill is released and hidden in it are two *enormous* copyright provisions; the Tillis bill that creates a jail felony for streaming infringements, and the "CASE act" that creates a totally new low-friction DMCA-takedown-like court that can levy five-digit fines for…well, pretty much anything, without the checks on abuse a normal court has or (to my read) adequate notice to targets they were even sued.

These have real potential to harm average Internet users.

So I don’t use Chrome but I have Ungoogled Chromium (codeberg.org/Eloston/ungoogled) as certain things only work under Chrom(ium) and I only just realised Google requires a Google account to install extensions.

Wow.

Hint: You can bypass this restriction using this the Ungoogled Extension Installer: github.com/UnnoTed/Ungoogled-C

The lengths we have to go to in order to protect our privacy from basic everyday things is ridiculous. We need fundamental change. Surveillance capitalism needs to die.

There's no more available ICU beds in the state of Arizona. We still don't have a state-wide mask mandate, not to speak of what's really required, which is a lockdown.

This is so incredibly important. Don’t plan ANYTHING that involves risk. Don’t get into a car accident. Don’t break a leg. Soon there might not be a hospital you can go to.

@aza_leah Thanks for your work on Void, and adopting urxvt :)

Probably has already been said, but it is beginning to look like Mark Zuckerberg is the next generation Rupert Murdoch, and more dangerous.

More and more every day.
