The EU has just adopted a set of guidelines to determine how repairable something is!

This is the first step towards mandating repairability score labels on new products, which is the first step towards a future where electronics last as long as they did in the past.

the civil justice system is fundamentally flawed because it can't actually enforce protections for anyone without the financial ability to bring a lawsuit and put their life on hold for a few years

burn the courts down and build something new on the rubble

even if a protection exists, if the entity you're suing has more money than you, they're at such a massive advantage that they can force you to settle for something they won't miss and that won't stop them from doing it again

I love seeing the copaganda facade fall and seeing non-leftist people all of a sudden realizing "woah these people really are pieces of shit."

Just want to give a shout-out to Audacity, which as far as I'm concerned is the open source creative tool that actually achieves the promise of open source creative tools. It gets significantly better every release and releases every few months, and the UI gets better and better (the key thing most open source tools don't achieve). If you tried Audacity a few years ago or more and decided it was unstable or clunky to use, download the latest version. You might be pleasantly surprised.

It's the one piece of software I can think of that just works.

DNS over HTTPS will not fix your "large company is spying over my traffic" because that is a social problem and you can't fix social problems with technology

The Hubble extreme deep field. With the exception of about 3 foreground stars, every object you see in this image is a galaxy.
