Did you know that you can integrate @codeberg with your @matrix chatroom, just like many people do for #Github integration?

Check out the simple procedure on the #Codeberg website:

Yet one reason more to make the switch if you are passionate for #FOSS 😃

TIL "/dev/full" to test/simulate no space left on device. awesome. didn't know that one.

I accepted the offer to update my Windows gaming box to Windows 11, confident that by now Microsoft had the time to iron out any glitches in the update procedure, but...

I need to defend Hetzner here, they just doing their job. DMCA was always a troll tool, platforms like GitHub, Hetzner etc just forwarding, without checking every detail because that would require lots of time and research.

Copyright law is still fundamentally broken and this is the real thing here, not that Hetzner took it down. We need more up-2-date laws and guidance how to deal with such cases and find workarounds instead of taking everything offline.

In 1930 the Indiana Bell building was rotated 90°. Over a month, the structure was moved 15 inch/hr, all while 600 employees still worked there. There was no interruption to gas, heat, electricity, water, sewage, or the telephone service they provided.

I've sent a complaint to Streamlabs regarding them stealing OBS trademark and userbase and being absolute pricks, demanding they stop.

Do the same!

This comany needs to change or fold.

Details were covered excellently by EposVox:

- At least 250GB of free disk space to check out the code and an extra 150 GB to build it. If you conduct multiple builds, you need additional space.
- At least 16 GB of available RAM is required, but Google recommends 64 GB.

As of June 2021, Google is using 72-core machines with 64 GB of RAM internally, which take about 40 minutes for a full build (and just a few minutes for incremental builds, depending on exactly which files were modified). By contrast, a 6-core machine with a similar amount of RAM takes 3 hours.

and people complain about js devstacks.........

The network ID numbers (equivalent of an IP address or phone number) are publicly available, so an attacker could trivially inject fake traffic pretending to be real planes.

I dunno, I worry about this shit.

So from the reading I did a while ago on ADS-B, the new kinda-mesh-network-y protocol for planes to report their position to air traffic control, there is basically no security baked into the protocol.

Nothing's encrypted, nothing's signed. Packets may be passed on peer-to-peer to allow traffic data to get around gaps in ground station reception, with no way to authenticate that it came from the original plane untampered-with.

Of course Elsevier's "enhanced pdf viewer" tracks where you click, view, if you hide the page, etc. and then transmits a big base64 blob of events along with ID from University proxy when you leave. I'm sure straight to SciVal for sale.
Is this the way we want science to work?

👀 … if just 1,000 people renew/become a new Sustainer (at the very reasonable level of just $120/year), we meet the match target — that will instantly double all your donations!

If you didn't donate yet this season ,help us bring #Vizio and other #GPL violators to #copyleft compliance, and support #FOSS projects as well!

When implementing cloud messaging, please consider using @unifiedpush - that way your users on Google can have their FCM, while those on F-Droid can pick the distributor of their choice (well, those on Play can, too). Thanks!

The fact that it's not possible to do an upgrade from CentOS Stream 8 to Stream 9 at all is a joke.

Gahhh I just hit "send" on the final book chapter and it's SCARY. I've submitted this thing about a billion times before, why does the last time feel so consequential?
