Bill Gates continuing to do evil under the guise of philanthropy.

"When Oxford University began work on its covid vaccine, it promised that the resulting work would be patent-free, with an active tech-transfer assistance program so that developing nations could manufacture their own supplies....

....That promise was broken. The Gates Foundation pushed the racist lie that poor people can't make safe vaccines - despite world-leading production facilities in the Global South - and convinced the university to sell exclusive rights to Astrazeneca...."

People are arguing if the vaccines should be targeted mainly to the areas with most cases..

Right now there are new strands popping up and we cannot be certain for how long these vaccines are going to do the trick.

Instead of being angry at the fellow not-so-rich person, blame capitalism and the rich. If we weren't so eager and willing to accommodate the rich on the back of this pandemic we could've gotten over this by now. Just open the manufacturing to everyone with the capability and we would've won this game already.

But no. We fail to see the forest from the trees. We picker among ourselves on who should get them next. Meantime the haves are laughing on their way to the bank.

Tested and Im pleasently surprised! Good job!

I'll give this a try for two weeks as my fix.

Alright! Thats it. Ive had enough of with its weird and reoccurring problems that forces users to drop to terminal (initramfs, .tX0-lock).

Can't have my people face these problems. Reinstalling my friends and familymembers PCs with the amazing when they next time call me up with buggy linuxmint.

Thank you to all Linux mint people. You are amazing but I can't do this anymore.

"Maankäyttö- ja rakennuslain on kohdistuttava nimensä mukaisesti rakentamiseen. Se että lakien rajapinnat ovat selkeät, auttaa, että toimijat pystyvät normaalissa toiminnassaan toimimaan lakien mukaisesti, eikä ole epäselvyyttä, että mitäs lakia tässä nyt pitäisi noudattaa, Islander sanoo Ylelle."

Olisihan se ihan hirveän vaikeaa, jos joutuisi yhtäkkiä niitä jo hyväksi havaittuja, voittoa tuottavia käytänteitä muuttamaan, koska ilmasto ja monimuotoisuus. Kyllä nyt olisi hyvä vain muistuttaa yksittäistä kansalaista roskaamisesta. Sillä se maailma pelastuu.

"– Luontomme on päässyt heikkenemään, koska luontoarvojen turvaaminen on taloudellisten arvojen kanssa ristiriidassa, Luonnonvarakeskuksen professori Anne Tolvanen puolestaan sanoo."

Kumpi arvo kaipaa tarkistusta?

Dear users,
this conversation mastodon.online/@alexw/1051961 reminded me that I was meaning to bother you guys with questions.

Whats up with gemini? Why not just use ?

Too resource heavy? Or some other reasons?

Struggling with with . I dont know how to give up though so Im just pushing through this shit right now.

Question: Be it "bushcraft", camping, fixing things or teaching, I enjoy tools that can do more than one thing. I dislike tools that have just one purpose.

Recent example: I refused having two bikes so I got a bike that can do everything but excels in none of those things. Im in love with this beast for that reason.

Biggest appeal in python, for me, is just this. It seems like it can do everything. Then I read how every programmer uses multitude of languages for different things.

Im not going to be a professional any time soon (just learning new things) but do I really need to get over this attitude of one tool to rule them all?

The #Epic @fedilab @k9mail cases have reinforced our strong stance that we must control the distribution channels of #FLOSS and no longer depend on the #PlayStore

A major threat to the adoption of an alternative is that users expect updates to be automatic but #Google made that possible only for the #PlayStore

Code Lutin will invest on @fdroidorg to make software update possible on non-rooted #Android devices thus, allowing people to adopt #FreeSoftware

Oi!
of all shades and colours of !

1) What is your opinnion on ?

2) Are they a tool? Tool for what?

3) If not, then why? What are your views on money or on mediums of exchange all together?

Im struggling to understand why some people are so in to cryptocurrencies. Who are these people? Are cryptocurrencies good for anything?

(People who arent leaning to are welcome to enlighten me/us, of course.)

Does anyone on the Fediverse knows of a good audio editor?

I want to release Libre Lounge out but I'm stuck in a mental rut editing the audio. But if I could pay for someone to do it, it would be done faster and we'd have more episodes.

If you're an audio editor or know of one that would be willing to edit a 45-1 hour long podcast, let me know.

Boosts appreciated!

I have no idea how they came up with these stats but.. Made me angry again. GIven how we just read how some people are boarding planes and flying circles for the fun of it, Im not too proud of my fellow peoples.
