I hope more young people begin to realize it. Unfortunately I see a lot unwilling to or that just don’t care. It makes me sad at what the internet could be but I can understand why the youth would see it this way. Ruling class hegemony has done an exceptional job at funneling people towards closed platforms with monetary ideals under the guise of being user-friendly/modern/fun.

Absolutely brutal

About Hurd

In short: just say NO TO DRUGS, and maybe you won’t end up like the Hurd people.


Touch screens will just never be as productive as dedicated input peripherals. It’s similar to text editing in vim vs a GUI: point-and-click menu navigating and limited keyboard shortcuts bound to Ctrl will not be as productive as being entirely keyboard driven


Return to monke web1.0. Not even a joke, modern brutalist websites are wonderful to navigate


People want “flashiness” nowadays. I’ve had to deal with this line of thinking far too often. I’d much rather have a simple site as a collection of links: it loads quickly, looks clean, and it’s easy to maintain.


No surprise that the US doesn’t trust something they can’t control. The fact they’re worried about Linux but not about Mac and Windows kernels says a lot on trust one can place on the latter two





😒🤚display manager

😏 👉 startx

i’ve never tested start-up times with each but startx just makes a lot more sense when you’re just using a WM manager anyway. bonus points for looking cool and impressing your non-tech friends when logging in though








Maybe have additional info when browsing from the home page that shows how long ago was the last comment on a post, or how many additional comments have been added since the post was last viewed.

It’d make the “new comments” sort a lot easier to parse as you can easily ascertain which posts have enough new discussion to read through again.


I’m going to assume that the vast majority of homeless people do not want to be homeless. Homelessness is a direct result of the conditions created by capitalism, and under a socialist state such conditions would mitigated to such a degree to eradicate the issue. Guaranteed food, work, and housing is how a society eradiactes homelessness.


The more AES countries divorce themselves from Western proprietary tech and rely on free software internationalism, the more secure they’ll be against capitalist hegemony



IRC’s been around for ages and got a huge foothold in tech circles. There’s a lot to hack around it and the process of setting it up and managing is very simple, not to mention the protocol is lightweight.

It fills its own role very well where persistent message history isn’t required, joining is easy, and to be incredibly robust.


Anything can be used as a catalyst, it all depends on the organization and the clarity of the message from those fighting against this and who understand the systemic causes that constantly lead to this.



Are you using AnySoftKeyboard? It’s the only FOSS keyboard I know of, and it does have a decent autocomplete. It can be kinda janky with it though, but it’s the price to pay as it doesn’t try to “learn” what you’re typing, but once you get used to it it’s really an incredible keyboard and I prefer it to the AOSP keyboard.


NFTs are the attempt to secure “scarcity” in digital commodities. There’s an absolute guarantee that the ruling class would love to NFTize everything it could online in order to profit off of things that instead could be digitally copied and redistributed endlessly.



If it helps you see my init.vim. Just a reminder to add ~/.local/share/nvim/lsp_servers to your $PATH so that any installed through the nvim-lsp-installer plugin are found.
