#docker itself became more or less #proprietarysoftware and #microsoft connected. Its new CEO (named days ago) comes from #nsa -connected background. So RIP, Docker.

The best genre of post is "oh, you say cops/CEOs/landlords/etc are bad, but what if I were to tell you that awful person is my father?"

Fuck your dad. We're all someone's kids. You think people making others lives miserable get a pass because they have kids? They don't.

There are three gays inside all of us
One is a golden drop of chubby sunshine. One has a charming drawl. The third is logical above all.
It's you, you're the USS Enterprise. Everyone gets fed because this is space communism.

Back when the GNU project was starting, among the first things they rewrote as Free Software were:
- text editor / IDE (Emacs)
- assembler, linker, and compiler
- make

IOW, they made tools that they needed to further develop Free Software without relying on proprietary tools.

They wanted their project to be self-hosting.

Nowadays, we have more free software than ever, but we develop it using github and Discord...

I genuinely don't know why I bother trying other distros. I know I'm just gonna reroll Arch.

Replaced my gen3 kindle's broken screen, whoop whoop

Is your landlord a capitalistic asshole throwing you out so they can put the same place back on the market for another grand a month?

The great flood of tears that we've cried
For our brothers and sisters who've died
Over four hundred years has washed away our fears
And strengthened our pride, now we turn back the tide

We will no longer hear your command
We will seize the control from your hand
We will fan the flame of our anger and pain
And you'll feel the shame for what you do in God's name

We will fight for the right to be free
And we will build our own society
And we will sing, we will sing
We will sing our own song

When the ancient drum rhythms ring
The voice of our forefathers sings
Forward Africa run our day of freedom has come
For me and for you Amandla Awethu

We will fight for the right to be free
And we will build our own society
And we will sing, we will sing
We will sing our own song

We will fight for the right to be free
And we will build our own society
And we will sing, we will sing
We will sing our own song


I'm going to go ahead and ask this, so it's not an accidental subtoot:

Can anything related to Mother's Day (Father's Day too) please be CW'd? Thanks in advance lovelies.

74 years ago today, Nazism was defeated in Europe. Remember those that fought to defeat fascism then and support those that fight to defeat fascism now.

Is there space on your homestead for one without youth and vigor
Is there room in your syndicate for the one who rocks and shouts
Does your committee have time for the one who stutters and struggles
Do these tiny homes come with ramps and aides
Will this new utopia hold space for us
Where do the elders sit
Where do the strange ones live
Where is the quiet place
Where we can go to mourn ourselves and others lost

People dont get to go around saying "I support bodily autonomy uwu" when they shame drug addicts and users. Abortion is not the only issue that bodily autonomy effects- far from it.

take me down to parallax city where the back moves slow and the front moves quickly

It's May 8th.

You know what that means: Strike's on for Lyft and Uber, and apparently one's been announced for a service called Juno too.

As always: If your situation makes it literally impossible to use alternatives, *that is okay.* If you see someone using the services under strike, *do not confront them* because invisible disabilities *are* a thing - you ain't psychic, so you can't know someone else's needs and level of ability just by looking at them.
