Finally got myself a #3dprinter, the Ender 3 v2
Build quality feels good, took me roughly 1 hour and 20 minutes to build, then took me like another 20 minutes to level the bed(as i also replaced the springs), and after a movie break, 10 minutes to start printing(had to find the boat model)
The print is literally the first print without any modifications to the default settings, and im kinda impressed.
After 2 years of negotiations with Microsoft, the German Data Protection Conference issued a damning statement: German schools must not use MS365 due to privacy violations.
Fortunately, Linux, LibreOffice & Tutanota are very good alternatives. 💪🔐
Qoto.org blocking, genocide mention
@matt @FediThing The weakness of Fediverse is the immature process of moderation. I’m reading more and more examples of blocking whole servers without clear reasons. Because somebody is thinking about something. Maybe it’s a single post, maybe thousand posts from one million. The easiest thing is to add them to the fediblock list with a long list of general and unclear accusation. Nobody will check them.
Economics: Humans only value things monetarily.
Sociology: Uh, I don't ...
Economics: Humans are always rational and value is calculated by a complex inner calculus.
Sociology: Uh, Psy, can you help?
Psychology: That's not how humans ...
Economics: ALSO MY SYSTEM WILL GROW EXPONENTIALLY FOREVER!!

Explanation of a fun Steam bug that causes Steam to pick a pseudo-random font for everything:
i think they should rename "favorite" to "enjoy". i would like to enjoy posts
I was giving the #LibreTranslate a shot to see how it has improved since the last time I checked.
It seems it has a very funny bug, for some of the words in Turkish (I know few words) it just keeps repeating the some form of the given string. For example the word "test". See for yourself:
The duf is a better 'df' command. It gives you a single tool for checking disk usage and free space on Linux, macOS, *BSD, Windows, Android and Unix. Try duf today
100 Mastodon myths:
1. Mastodon is hard.
FALSE. It’s a "soft"ware. Not hardware.
2. You have to use Linux to post on Mastodon.
FALSE. FreeBSD and OpenBSD are also supported.
3. You need to learn to use the Vim editor before posting on Mastodon.
FALSE. There’s also an emacs plugin.
4. Mastodon is only for computer nerds.
FALSE. As you can see, we sometimes try to make jokes that everyone could understand.
I've made a deliberate choice against a quoting feature because it inevitably adds toxicity to people's behaviours. You are tempted to quote when you should be replying, and so you speak at your audience instead of with the person you are talking to. It becomes performative. Even when doing it for "good" like ridiculing awful comments, you are giving awful comments more eyeballs that way. No quote toots. Thank's
