Congress: Nonprofit TV-streaming services can use a copyright exception so Americans have access to local stations.
Copyright-abusing networks: No, they can't. We control how viewers can watch free broadcasts.
Judge ruling against @LocasOrg: OK, got it. eff.org/deeplinks/2021/09/cour

Intro from Monolith's "Get Medieval" (1998). #NotDOS
Is this what happens when the devs decide they want the game to be funny at the 11th hour, but all the cinematics have already been rendered, and there are only 5 minutes left till the final build? 🤔

Last month I felt empowered because I managed to replace the battery in my ancient cellphone.

Today I got the email that my carrier will drop support for the phone next month.

Rats.

So...anyone know any tricks to keep a #Nexus5 going?

UI design principles elementary OS adhears to that I adore:

1. Design is not vaneer, every decision about your software behaves is a design decision & should be treated as such.

2. Design is not (entirely) subjective, you can judge it on how well it achieves it's goals.

3. Apps should be concise, non-bloated, & modular.

4. Design sane config defaults, ask the OS for config rather than the user, minimize configuration options (yes, controversial) keeping it mostly to accessibility.

I create special editions of books for charity auctions at conferences. The plague has shut down the cons, so I'm opening this to THE WHOLE DANGED INTERNET.

Only five copies of this edition of "FreeBSD Mastery: Jails" exist. Four are spoken for. Help human trafficking survivors start their lives over.

If anyone's looking to get a cheap capture card, get this:
https://github.com/maximus64/vxis-capture-fw-mod

It can record at 1080p60 raw, the firmware is very hackable, and there's somewhat of a community working on writing an alternative firmware for it.

You know how cheesy movie scientists say "the experiment was a failure" when they don't get the result they hoped for? Well, my experiment really was a failure. I did all the setup and then was unable to complete the actual procedure, so I didn't get any data. *That's* an experiment failure.
