Try to imagine a world where every advertisement was replaced with art celebrating you as a worker and reminding you of your power and value.

At their core, all ads are telling you that you aren't happy, but you could be if you bought something. The cumulative effect of seeing that all day every day must be devastating, but we've never known anything else

* N'ont pas besoin d'être "rentables" (ie. personne ne s'étonne que cela ne rapporte rien = dépenses, investissements):
- armée
- police
- aide aux entreprises (CICE, baisses de charges, etc.)
- frais du gouvernement, présidence, parlement, etc.
=> Ce qui consolide le pouvoir.

* Doivent être "rentables" (ie. sont déconstruites si elles coûtent plus qu'elles ne rapportent = "trou", déficit, dette)
- retraites
- santé
- éducation
=> Ce qui crèe du lien social, du bien-être, de la solidarité.

I joined the ACC - the university computer club, and now I have access to a computerlab, printer, scanner, 64 GB space and my own domain. Neat! 😀

Hello mastodon, time for some news about the awful cursed musical scene I am a part of : what's going on in chiptune these days? Next tweets will have various CWs because it's not too pretty

#OpenBSD has disabled #DoH by default in our #Firefox packages. This is active in -current, and will be in our 6.6 -release.

From @otto 's commit message:

"""Disable DoH by default. While encrypting DNS might be a good thing, sending all DNS traffic to Cloudflare by default is not a good idea.
Applications should respect OS configured settings."""

Some Chromebooks mistakenly declared themselves end-of-life last week

When your Chromebook or Chromebox approaches its built-in expiration date, it will warn you that it's time to go buy a new device entirely. Not long after that, it will refuse to apply any further security or feature updates. In addition to leaving users vulnerable to unpatched security exploits, this means that constantly evolving services such as Gmail will eventually stop working entirely.

Vixie's talk spells out the reasons behind my really bad gut reaction to DNS over HTTPS.

Don't implement DoH. It's a terrible, terrible idea. It's a political solution, not a technical one.

Talk is being taped, so video will be available soon.

Let's talk about a little relic that's hiding in your PC since ~1870.

The 'Bell' (BEL) character is a special character that makes your computer beep.

In DOS/Windows (yes even 10) you can type it using CTRL-G. Try it in your command prompt: echo ^G

On Linux/Mac it'll be: echo -e "\a"

The Bell command used to be used by teletype operators to get the attention of remote operators by making their unit ring an actual bell. This special character remains with us to this very day!

Because quite a lot of work is impossible to automate or becomes measurably worse and/or more wasteful by automation.

Hey Brits,

I had a good time drinking beers at a French pub called #Brexit.

No joking :

It was complicated but we actually found a way to leave
