Going through the process of backing up whatsapp contacts and telling them I won't be using facebook's botnet anymore.
Doesn't feel as good as it should. I know it will make keeping touch with distant family, using services in my country very inconvenient and convincing them to use alternatives it's not easy.
But I cannot in good conscience continue to be part of this abusive, manipulative system, whoring out our personal information
Screw you zucc
The Expanse S5 Spoilers
Just watched the last episode of the Expanse S5 and tbqh i'm very disappointed at how they sent Alex off. An aneurysm? Really? They weren't even in a high-G burn!
Yeah it's realistic, and yeah the actor really fucked up, but the _character_ and the fans shouldn't be punished. It feels cheap and rushed.
Very hyped with the Laconia stuff tho, not gonna lie
Github actions can be quite handy, but by turing's balls I wish there was an easier way of debugging the damned things
Having to constantly re-commiting the same file and clogging up the commit history is extremely frustrating
If anyone is aware of a better way, or has any pro-tips, please let me know
The advances in Linux gaming (as far as desktops go) always astounds me. Wine, Proton, Lutris, PlayOnLinux, even Codemaster's work.. it shows that we need not be tied to the apron strings of Microsoft any more, and with the incumbent release of kernel 5.11, that apron is getting more and more tattered. We may not have the 'year of the Linux desktop' yet, but I see no reason to not hold out that hope for the future.
Testing this 'toot' thing for the first time.
Big thank you to @derek for hosting this instance. Hopefully we can turn the tide and create a healthy, federated environment
