Yes, yes I should. I misread this the first time I saw it.

Must admit, I misread it the first time too. And usually I'm a stickler for stuff like that.

I must have been hungry when I read it the first time. I saw C L A M right off.




 

I see things like this and it makes me wish I had even the slightest bit of artistic talent.

Rosa Luxemburg: El imperialismo de todos los países no sabe de "entendimientos", sólo reconoce un derecho- las ganancias del capital: conoce sólo un lenguaje- la espada: sabe sólo de un método- la violencia. Y si está ahora hablando en todos los países, en los vuestros tanto como en los nuestros, acerca de la "Liga de las Naciones", "del desarme", "de los derechos de las naciones pequeñas", "de la autodeterminación de los pueblos", es meramente usando las frases trilladas de los gobernantes con el propósito de arrullar hasta el sueño la vigilia del proletariado.



 
Hmm... here's a QOTD for you:

If you were elected to some public office, what would be your choice for a book with which to be sworn in?

My choice (two, actually):
  • Sir Isaac Newton's Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica
and
  • Dr. A. Einstein's Relativity: The Special and the General Theory
#elected office #swearing in #Bible #QOTD
*Hat tip to @Lisa Stranger for inspiring this QOTD with one of her postings here at Pluspora.

My first choice is no book. My word of honor stands on its own. If it's a public office in the United States, my second choice would be a copy of the Constitution. I don't have a third choice.

Actually, what happens with Trump is that they get to kiss his ass. ;)



 
In preparation for my upcoming talk at #GUADEC2019, I’ve updated my blog post calling for a FreeDesktop Dark Style Preference. More details, more screenshots, and updated info from other platforms (like the iOS 13 beta). https://blog.elementary.io/the-need-for-a-freedesktop-dark-style-preference/

A small correction: "Light or dark style in Android 9 Pie; screenshots from Android Police" - that's Oreo, not Pie. :)

whoops, I’ll take a look at that.

I think they added it to the Pixel Launcher in 8 Oreo, then expanded it to all devices (or tweaked it?) in 9 Pie?

I have an option for dark style in settings on Pie, but I'm not sure whether it is a stock thing or comes from the custom ROM. It definitely wasn't there on Oreo, dark mode was determined by wallpaper. Also, in Pie it becomes dark with battery saver mode.

I think as well as dark mode, an accessibility/high-contrast mode should also be a thing too.

Doesn't GTK currently do it by setting the 'theme' to HighContrast? in which case it doesn't work if an application isn't using Gtk to draw (e..g games) and web browsers could tell a page they prefer a high contrast mode.

@Paul Ferguson Until, like London, England, they allow developers to block off sections of the public areas along the Thames to tenants only. I love London and hate it in equal measure for what they have done to encroach on the Thames.

@Paul Ferguson So much cement, so little grass.

isn't one of the arguments by the 2nd Amendment idiots that they're going to protect all the other Amendments?

corporations are paying our government to make the 1st Amendment illegal ... so where the fuck are they?

"...la idea de la vigilancia constante me aterroriza. No importa si es de Google o de la NSA. Valoro mi privacidad, incluso un grado de anonimato. No quiero que nadie, ni humanos ni máquinas, recopilen todos mis rastros, descubran dónde estoy y qué es lo que probablemente haré después, y mucho menos lo que quiero para mi placer o comodidad. Perder la capacidad de moverse por el mundo sin ser vista, eso me da miedo."

Walter Benjamin: La moral de la burguesía está bajo el signo de la interioridad (y ya en el dominio del Terror advertimos las primeras señales). Su punto cardinal es la conciencia, ya sea la del citoyen de Robespierre o la del ciudadano del mundo kantiano. El comportamiento burgués, ventajoso para sus propios intereses, pero referido a otro comportamiento complementario del proletariado, no correspondiente por cierto a los intereses de este último, proclamaba la conciencia como instancia moral. La conciencia está bajo el signo del altruismo. Aconseja al propietario actuar según conceptos cuya vigencia favorece mediatamente a los otros propietarios, y con toda facilidad aconseja lo mismo a los que nada poseen. Si estos últimos se acomodan a este consejo, la utilidad de su comportamiento para los propietarios es evidente y tanto más inmediata cuanto más problemática resulta para los que así actúan y para su clase. Por eso hay un premio de virtud para comportamiento semejante. Así es como s... show more
