Now for some reason any attempt to attach a document to gmail is failing. Searching the web says that the solution is to use a "compatible browser".
Google, you are getting me closer and closer to abandon one of the last services I still depend on. All the pain of self-hosting is nothing compared with this shit you are pulling out.
Cell phone companies will start providing identifier codes to websites that you visit. https://blog.simpleanalytics.com/vodafone-deutsche-telekom-to-introduce-persistent-user-tracking
And no, GDPR does not cover these cases. I wish people stopped think of regulations as magic pixie dust that can solve whatever problem they have, and instead look at regulations as "the set of rules that are deemed acceptable for the lobbyists to impose on smaller players, but with enough loopholes for them to ignore it completely."
First-ever Gitea comment on an issue from a remote instance!!! 🎉
Is it just me and my corner of the internet, or is the incidence of strawman "arguments" rising online?
I don't know if I got better at identifying it or if people are losing their ability of reading and debating online, but I'm getting tired of seeing how many times I have to start a comment with "Where in TFA is this claim or argument that you are objecting/responding to?"
All these years of bull markets made the whole industry complacent. "Just throw more money at it", was the easy solution offered by anyone, including "senior" managers who never had to learn how to make do with the resources available - or not do at all.
Now that bubble finally popped is going to the time to see who can actually manage and who was just coasting around.
I got into a week-long discussion on Hacker News with someone who does "tech strategy consulting for a living" (his words), who insists that it makes no sense for a company to support #opensource development.
The same type of bizdev-bro who will happily parrot things like "companies should outsource everything that is not core to their business", and are simply blind to how that could be done by funding F/OSS projects.
@k9mail_app, a project I started way back in 2008 has found a forever home as part of the Mozilla family! Congrats to @cketti on making this happen! https://blog.thunderbird.net/2022/06/revealed-thunderbird-on-android-plans-k9/
This https://www.crowdsupply.com/sutajio-kosagi/precursor is just the type of open source project that I would like to support, but *not* by buying the current iteration. What I'd like to see is some kind of sponsorship model that gives the sponsors the *option* to receive any of the units that come in the future. For example, I'd like to give $10 every month and if 3 years later they get a model that I'm interested, the money I already put in could work as a down payment.
the fully open source hardware RISC-V Precursor from bunnie studios is now shipping out to people. pretty insane this thing was actually made

AirBNB's plan to deal with the new reality of remote work seems solid, and the most interesting of it all is that it works for them as terrific growth opportunity: by open sourcing" its processes, it makes it easier for other companies to let their employees work from anywhere, which leads to more using AirBNB itself as their accomodation for medium-term stays.
