I love how Drew DeVault is gradually turning into Richard Stallman with these half-satire advocating for digital rights: https://drewdevault.com/2021/08/10/Apple-CSAM-scanning.html

What is the best GNU/Linux distro? This is a often asked newbie question. It is what kept me distro-hoping for so many months when I first started. The answer is the one you feel comfortable using, makes you happy and you feel home on. With experience you will learn this. Take time with each one, find your home.

Interesting work, tracing the history of UNIX through FreeBSD.

"Unix has evolved for more than five decades, shaping modern operating systems, key software technologies, and development practices. Studying the evolution of this remarkable system from an architectural perspective can provide insights on how to manage the growth of large, complex, and long-lived software systems"

Wow, after 25 years of Unix experience, I learned that you can filter output in #less.

Press ampersand (&) and enter a regex to show only lines matching the regex.

Press ampersand (&) and then exclamation mark (!) to apply an inverse filter.

Google seems to think that everyone's problem with privacy is that the tracking is happening on their servers. So they've added code to Chrome to violate your privacy locally instead. Their goal is to make behavioral targeting possible without third party cookies, which a lot of people now block. But the reason people block third party cookies is because they don't want to be tracked at all.

SDL moves to Github 😕

> And I grew up during the heyday of the Free Software Foundation, so I *know* this is a trap, but I’m *tired* and don’t have the energy to be a server admin for something that’s held together with scotch tape and prayers when I’m really supposed to be writing OpenGL code.

Google have suspended Element in the Play Store without notifying us; we're reaching out to find out what's going on. Apologies for the inconvenience; in the interim there's f-droid.org/en/packages/im.vec but it's a few versions behind. We'll post updates here.
