I decided to start sharing parts of as they become mature.

Today, I am releasing a library for decoding ActivityStreams 2.0 objects into native Go objects and also for encoding Go objects into ActivityStreams 2.0 JSON objects.

Repo: github.com/MatejLach/astreams

The usage is your typical Go Marshal/Unmarshal, (see tests for examples).

The license is copyleft (AGPLv3).

Your feedback (and a star) are welcome :-)

Good Night SDF 3B2/500! Thank you for continuing to operate during the 2022 VCF events. See you next season.

I don't think I ever passed through Simplon Tunnel before. It's 20km long, between Switzerland and Italy, built in 1906/1921 (second tube).

"On average, 3,000 people a day worked on the site. They were mostly Italians, who suffered under very poor working conditions: 67 workers were killed in accidents; many died later of diseases. During the work, there were strikes, which led to the intervention of vigilantes and the Swiss army."

From HN:

"No company would let stay for as long as the FSF did."

Lol, as if companies are the moral arbiters of our times (they certainly would like to think they are).

No bigger endorsement of RMS than that no corp would want him.

This is what most critics I've interacted with don't get; no I don't want your shell script mess launcher as a replacement and no its not a viable alternative to .

Interesting, service compatible user service supervisor git.sr.ht/~craftyguy/superd

From the FAQ on the 'why':

"I believe that declarative service config, while less powerful than writing piles of shell script, is easier to do and maintain long term. Almost everything else is either complicated to setup, can't handle dependencies, tries to do too much, or would require most folks to spend some non-trivial amount of time to learn to configure and "port" services too."

Right on the mark.

Jeremy Corbyn would crash the UK economy, vote Tory!

Oh wait...

What's more about Stadia - the online store has shut down entirely today with absolutely zero notice.

This is, frankly, fucking insane to do this without warning developers.

There's also a bunch of exclusive games which are now inaccessible and potentially lost forever.

@rysiek keep it in a git repo, tell people to "check out my blog"

NEW! We've added a roadmap for our journey to Thunderbird on Android. See what we've already delivered and what we're currently working on with @k9mail:

Asahi Lina got the Linux GPU driver for ARM Macs written in Rust to start working 🚀

Somehow Blogger persists almost 20 years post-acquisition while google launches and shuts down endless products. #stadia

shutting down because otherwise we might be wondering what happened to the good ol' GOOG.

I only ever got 3 games on there and even completed on the platform, so got some use out of it, but anyone trusting anything is putting out long-term is a fool.

I'm starting to see posts on like:

'When heating own homes during the winder becomes too expensive for our employees, they're sure to return back to the office'

What in the peak capitalist hell is this?

Xorg desktop works now on Litex/VexRiscV core in MNT Reform Kintex-7 FPGA module! surprisingly usable, incl. internet and USB mouse/keyboard

That graphic is extremely reminiscent of a certain other manufacturer of integrated electronics, specifically CPUs out there...🤔

I remember #MrWhosTheBoss on YouTube saying that the biggest reason the modular #phone idea with individually upgradeable components will never work is... you'll get bored of the phone after a while.

That pissed me off sooo much because it just reeks of the privilege of a phone review "influencer". You can just tell he's never had a daily driver phone actually get old enough to become unusable because he gets free phones every other week

The ways that people talk about gifted and talented programs, as if they're designed to "diversify learning outcomes" or "increase engagement" or whatever... really tells me that all the propaganda about them being to "accelerate learning" worked.

Especially when people keep saying that they were "originally part of the special education program."

They weren't. They never were. They were always designed in *opposition* to special education and as a response by people who thought we wasted too many resources on "inferior" people.

Like, one need only look back to books about and suggested curriculum for G&T programs *prior* to WWII. Because it was *after* WWII that we started obfuscating and hiding our eugenics talk into euphemisms.

But the point remained.

at their Innovation conference confirmed that 4th Gen Xeon Scalable "Sapphire Rapids" processors will feature an optional "on demand" activation model.

Nice way to boost AMD's marketshare indeed, well done Intel.
