That's it, I'm tired of torturing #Firefox and prefs.js. Disabled telemetry and a couple of other unnecessary things and that's it.

I even left #WebRTC (to make #Snowflake work).

And if anything, there's #LibreWolf.

GPL is basically the software equivalent of Creative Commons Attribution ShareAlike.

Those who have a problem with it do so because they don’t want to share alike.

They want to take but not give.

So you decide how you feel about that.

This. If you have knowledge you want to pass on, make a blog, a website on something.

Posting on things we have to get an app, sign in, find et and scroll for ages, is ensuring this knowledge will not spread.

Even Twitter is part of the problem

Disney has a long history of being an enemy of content freedom, most notably how they twisted and manipulated copyright law to something distincly NOT in public interest, for their own pocketbooks. Disney+ is the climax of that same ignoble mission so far. defectivebydesign.org/blog/ida

Before you buy that e-book from Amazon, do yourself a favor and see if the publisher has a website with direct sales.

I've found a number of books that I was interested in DRM-free, in EPUB format, and sometimes at a discounted price, just by poking around a little.

I still say they should have picked Rustafarian for their name.

Let me talk out the architecture I've got planned for my "Haphaestus" browser engine for TVs & eReaders.

I'll tackle the rendering engine first, so let's start there.

I plan to use GPU-rendering to avoid the need for more complex optimizations elsewhere. Rendering all the "fragment" pixels (in GLSL) for each element simultaneously is an unusual programming paradigm, but should be easy enough!

I'll parse relevant CSS properties directly into GLSL input within this module.

@alexandra So we have invented this essentially undeletable database, it's horribly inefficient but it works, right, so shouldn't we be using it to record all of humanity's knowledge as well as evidence of crimes against humanity, instead of using it for funding ransomware and making a few people richer?

After three decades of using email I just sent my first message using the protocol directly by talking to an SMTP server interactively and typing in all the commands by hand.

Have to say, was actually simpler than setting up some of the email clients I’ve used over the years :)

@Parienve @valleyforge I had to see what an all-electric generator looked like. Found this: forbes.com/sites/jenniferhicks

It's basically a portable battery bank. I guess it could get you through rolling blackouts if sized appropriately, but it wouldn't help much in an extended outage.
