These aren't even recent events. Vietnamese people must be pretty passive if you have to go all the way back to 2019 to find a case of organized crime.
Upgraded Ubuntu to 22.04, where Firefox is Snap by default. Wasn't going to fight it, especially since Canonical has made 3 blog posts talking about how much faster they made Firefox on Snap.
Since then, I've had subtle but annoying issues.
* Can't Google things that have a colon after the first word- i.e. `error: file not found` doesn't work
* I get *notifications* for pending updates
* Other apps like Gnome's Software take a minute+ to load on my beefy computer
This isn't even a meme. Snap is trash. I wanted to be neutral and not join the "hate train" but seriously. Snap is that bad.
I would say "change my mind" but I won't. I spent 5 years believing \*maybe\* I was missing something about them, but no, these are licenses selected 49.5% of the time for the wrong reason, 49.5% of the time because the original project devs were cucks, and 1% of the time because they're trying to replace a corporate dominant proprietary solution (which is the only valid usecase for these licenses).
If you're a FOSS dev, have some self respect and choose a proper license.
Hey Lemmy -
I was downloading the KDE Neon edition ISOs yesterday night and noticed there weren't many seeders for the nightly edition. It gave me the idea to write a program that automatically grabs the .torrent file for lots of FOSS projects and throws them on my seedbox every night, but before I reinevent the wheel, does something like this exist?
Qbittorrent has a Python API so the code isn't complicated, but with a bit of Google-foo I wasn't able to find something like this already, which kind of blows my mind tbh. Does Lemmy know?
My family is fairly well off, and nobody needs anything.
We have a poor tradition of buying gifts nobody needs.
I've spoken with some of my family and we're going to change this to make Christmas about giving to those in need. Unfortunately, everyone has slightly different interests and I'm having a hard time coming up with impactful charities for various family members.
**Does anyone know of some (global or Canadian) charities in these categories?**
* Human Rights/Poverty
Some charities I've got so far:
* [The Water Project](https://thewaterproject.org/) (Human Rights)
* [Software Freedom Conservancy](https://sfconservancy.org/donate/) (Technology)
* [Godot](https://godotengine.org/donate) (Technology)
* [Doctors Without Borders](https://www.doctorswithoutborders.ca/donate) (Human Rights)
Any suggestions appreciated (:. Share this post with your family if you want to start something like this too!
