My psychiatrist told me I'm goin' crazy so I said, "If you don't mind, I'd like a second opinion"; she said, "Alright, you're ugly too."

A multi billion dollar company emails OSS devs they never paid a cent to demanding a response for free within 24 hours with lots of info 😂

This NFT explainer, linked here already by many, is amazingly good:

That said, this sentence is just art:
> This is what makes [NFT] enthusiasts so deeply unreliable: they have meaningful financial stakes in an intangible, volatile thing that exists entirely as a collective ideoform.

I promise the rest of the video is very clear and easy to understand, cuts through the bullshit like knife through butter. But that sentence... that sentence is *dense*.

Looking for Work :boost_requested: 

Hi all! I'm looking for junior-level work in #software / #game development, linux admin, or anything related. I have worked with #rust on librsvg in #outreachy and have written my own websites! I studied media in university so I can make videos and know a lot of AR/VR theory and design! I've also written C#, Java, Python, and Shell scripts

Need remote work, central US-based, travel (post-Covid) is great!

I just wanna say I really appreciate cats. Idk why there's an animal that just hangs out in your house with you but that's cool. I also like it when they lay down with all their legs tucked in so they look like a cat loaf

Docker has been quite successful at making people think you now need to pay money for containers

My cat is being really distant today. I wonder what's going on 🤔

I see people talk about the old meme where it's like "Oh you're good with computers? Can you fix my printer?"

For me it's more like:

"Oh you're good with computers? Can you do my taxes for me?"

"Oh you're good with computers? Can you review my resume and let me know what you think?"

Very provocative article on open source, by none other than the creator of Ruby on Rails: "I won't let you pay me for my open source".

This sentence is worth the price of admission alone:

"Both Gates and Stallman built their life’s work on the back of copyright law. One with the right to extract gobs of money from his proprietary software [...]. The other with the right to extract contributions [...] from users of his open source software."

"We have together, with the protestants and the Catholics, enough votes to run the country. And when the people say, 'we have had enough' we are going to take over."

Is it possible to expand an image when mousing over it with #CSS, or is the click-to-expand-image thing JavaScript only?

I don't understand why people are so afraid to admit that the thing they use might not be the best. Like... I use Linux for PC gaming, and I'll be the first to admit that there are some serious problems there. It doesn't mean that I hate Linux, or even that I don't like it, it just means that the state of Linux gaming isn't really that great.

I think Linus's foray into Linux as a gaming OS brings a lot of very real pain points to light that people just don't want to acknowledge.

I think it's weird that people can unironically go on tirades about how the US is the freest country in the world but in the same breath joke about how googling something will get them on a watchlist
