The US gov't is not only pressuring social media corporations to suspend Iranian accounts (they're obediently complying); it's even getting Iranian websites using .com domains taken down

The internet was marketed as "democratic"—but it's heavily controlled by the US rogue regime

This is not good. This shows one government can control what is on the internet with total impunity and without any sort of accountability or evidence.




O subtítulo da tradução brasileira é diferente do original, modulando a recepção justamente para aqueles que já acreditam que junho de 2013 foi uma “revolução colorida” que levou mecanicamente ao golpe de 2016 (e à eleição de Bolsonaro em 2018).

A petition to free Cycas CAD


There was this # software that always captured my attention but I haven't tried though. And although the website seems still updated the last version available is from the far 2008.

From the screenshot it seems build natively for Linux with the X11 libraries, it would be nice asking to owners if they are willing to open code. They could be also crowdfund the code as did by Blender.

Do you believe it is worth making an attempt with an online petition?

I am not sure what the answer to all this is, but something needs to happen, I am guessing the the intention here is to beat last years body count.

What the hell is going on ?

Oh, another issue with Grindr. We observed the app sharing GPS location data with several third parties. Grindr was then suspended by its ad/data partner MoPub. Now, ad fraud.

Do you have enough evidence to make a referral to the data office ICO in the Uk, I think it will take more people speaking out to keep these companies complient, if they are going to operate in the EU / UK then they HAVE to comply with the GDPR and users need to hold them to account, and ensure the ICO do their job and have the powers to act.



Something y'all might consider is stocking up on surgical masks or the equivalent before Amazon, etc., runs out of them.

Goggles are also a really good idea but they look kind of weird. ;-)

My wife has an old Israeli gas mask that she used to wear on flights. That was before 9/11 and the paranoia.

Bahahahaha. There's my genuine LOL of the day. I see why you've been with her so long. You're both equally nuts -- as am I. I love it.

And now I understand how she puts up with you. She doesn't have to. :-)

Surgical masks come in three grades, if they are from medical categories: must at least have II (two), or III (three) to protect against virii and airborne droplets - grade I is practically useless. Problem is, III is expensive, and with them you can't breathe normally for longer.

Why Nazi atrocities against gay men must never be forgotten

Rudolf Brazda died in 2011 at the age of 98. He was a gay man born in what is now eastern Germany. There was nothing exceptional about his death, but he was the last known LGBT+ survivor of the Nazi concentration camps.

@LibreOffice

Hi

Is there any reason why the get involved page at
https://www.libreoffice.org/community/get-involved/

is not linked to the helper site at

https://whatcanidoforlibreoffice.org/#!/progornoprog/infra/learn

This would make it easier for people to decide if and how they can contribute to projects ?

I will do a follow up post to this, as this question, has been prompted by issues trying to figure out which Debian desktop choice should be downloaded.

Hi Paul, the "What can I do for LibreOffice" website was developed by volunteers as an extra way to get involved, on top of the main "Get Involved" page that you linked to. Perhaps we should consolidate them into a single page, when we have the time – any help would be appreciated! 🙂 👍

I think just having a link between them would be good, it would make it easier to find both sites. one of the issues peopple have trying to help is trying to find out how to, and what is needed.



Just because I'm a glutton for punishment I'm experimenting with using the @PINE64 Pinebook Pro throttled to 408MHz setting. Surprised how snappy some things are (TeXmaker) and how glacial others are (LibreCalc). Kinda #

So, there's a question. What's the fastest clock speed consistent with # ? I think my first guess is 233MHz, the StrongARM-powered version of the RISC PC from Acorn, around 1996.

"The 233MHz StrongARM gave a performance improvement over the 30MHz ARM610 of more than 800%."

Has some interesting suggestions, not much in the way of suggestions for the fediverse, but at least it gets people talking about the topic.

This is 2020. why is this still happening? Time for the corporates to grow up and treat the people, who generate the profits, for your over inflated salaries, to be paid properly.
