When I woke up this morning I didn't expect to spend my day arguing with a programming language.

But you know... JavaScript and I, we do have very different ideas of scopes.

US Justice Department accidentally reveal that they're charging Julian #Assange. What an absolute joke guys. Just leave poor mate alone. #security #privacy

It's not enabled by default, so you need to set GDK_BACKEND=wayland ie via ~/.config/environment.d/gdk.conf - if you're using that is.

Then, open about:support in Nightly and check if you see something mentioning EGL under the Graphics section, similar to the screenshot I posted.

Testing on Nightly.

Super smooth and I no longer get the glitches I sometimes had when starting Firefox on Xwayland.

Nice work .

The NH crowd got wind of sr.ht and hugged it to death. 😃

@bob @Shamar That’s because Simon is squarely about Open Source. Open Source was a reactionary immune system response by the business community to Free Software (in its original form, limited to copyleft licenses). They could see the value in free as in free labour and the value of privatisation but they didn’t want the “share alike” aspects of Stallman’s licenses. The only thing that Open Source and Free Software have in common is that the source is open.

Saw this reaction to marketing running apps on :

"So it does everything that Linux does, but you can also send all your personal data automatically to google.

Wow, what a value proposition!"


Another kernel written in Rust!


Rust tooling/docs must be making operating system development more accessible, as there is an impressive number of these projects.

I'm watching The Lord of the Rings.

It occurs to me that Sauron could've solved all of his problems if he'd just made a belt instead of a ring 🤷‍♂️

"There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs." - John Rogers

Lately, many people that I truly respect have answered to the ' #google product or #apple customer ' question by switching to iOS.

It makes some sense to choose the platform of a customer-oriented company instead of the tracking-oriented one's, cos you need here and now a smartphone that just works.

But only a #foss platform can give back to the users the control of their devices.

Let's not fall into the "lesser of two evils" trap. There are foss mobile initiatives out there. And they need our support.

Hi there! I am a free software developer. I enjoy working on useful software, as well as advocating for software freedom and the use of open standards, promoting data ownership, decentralization and privacy. If this is important to you, I may be worth following. If you like Go, Rust, or Swift, it may be worth following me as well. Besides computing, I enjoy metal, a good read and occasionally some gaming, (not much time for that these days).
