"Hi! Thanks for coming to $vendor for an interview. Tell me, what made you want to apply for this position?"

I think hardware vendors are fucking idiots and I'm here to set this trainwreck straight.

"...okay, thanks for coming in, we'll be in touch"

Bought Adesso Xtream G1 headset for someone, because it was one of the cheapest USB headsets around.

Piece of shit is advertised as an USB headset and it's just a regular 3.5mm jack headset with an extra USB plug used for powering LEDs.

I'm officially a grownup now, falling for things like this.

Shit it didnt age as well as i remembered

Question about rack mounting... I'm interested in getting a small rack and an ATX case in rack mounting format to transplant my mid-tower home server to... But all those rack mount cases only have mounting parts at the front. Is that how it's done? Or how do I secure the back? Does it float? This question has been driving me batty. I can't find the answer. It's probably a question too noobish...

The social distancing ended too soon. Not mentally ready to see people but they already started storming my house. It was such nice 3 months of just instant messages but everything that's good must come to an end.

Ok, this is really nice!

Stores git (github/gitlab/etc) issues locally, allows using them via a TUI and local web server + offline + bidirectional sync.

I just chuckled on an issue opened in my repo. Gave up using translated software a long time ago because of the often ridiculous translations. Translations like this one: github.com/gjedeer/Acastus/iss

That looks better! My swarm can now join jitsi and zoom meetings by using pyfakewebcam and the v4l2loopback kernel module (with exclusive_caps=1 parameter)

first alpha release of #briar desktop:
nico.dorfbrunnen.eu/posts/2020

😻 yeah!!! 👏 I haven't tested it, but I was already waiting for it.

Also:
👉 the developer is looking for a #debian package maintainer. so a boost might help to find that person? :goose_peek:

you have no idea what #birar is?

"#Briar is a messaging app designed for activists, journalists, and anyone else who needs a safe, easy and robust way to communicate.

Unlike traditional messaging apps, Briar doesn’t rely on a central server - messages are synchronized directly between the users’ devices.

If the internet’s down, Briar can sync via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi, keeping the information flowing in a crisis.

If the internet’s up, Briar can sync via the Tor network, protecting users and their relationships from surveillance."

hi fedi!

us in the cabal club are spending the next 7 weeks creating a subjective moderation system for cabal: a volunteer-driven & open source p2p project for resilient chat. [1]

we think it's important to ground the implementation in lived experiences, hearing concerns, and just listening to other people a bit

we're looking for people to interview & prioritizing those who identify as trans and/or women. please dm me if you are interested

thank you!
