@DissidentKitty also if you need textbooks you definitely shouldn't pirate them from librarygenesis.net/ because it would be bad for capitalism

Everyone please, please sign the save .ORG petition.

SaveDotOrg.org

.ORG seems to be the worst tld to sell. The people who want to use it are orgs that probably need it. ICANN has not given good reasons for why they are selling except for "we trust them" and pretty much just "we want the money."

Black Friday is a good opportunity to shop but only if you're strategic:

1⃣ No impulse purchases
2⃣ Make a "Black Friday" list throughout the year of things you need and their actual prices
3⃣ Only buy things from the list and only if they're actually discounted

I love this post:

"When we first approached hardware manufacturers almost two years ago with this project most of them instantly said “No, sorry, impossible, we can not help you.”. Others warned us, that it could never work, that it was too complicated, “the industry does not do that” and so forth.

And yet here we are, later than we wanted, but we are actually shipping first hardware! It is possible but it comes at a price."

We did it! We came together as a community and met our fundraising goal to defend software freedom from patent litigation.
💙
Next up comes the hard part - winning this lawsuit and setting precedent. Stay tuned for updates as we progress forward

My father taught me to program.

He had Opinions, which is why I first learned a bit of Logo and then later, Pascal.

Basic was forbidden in our house, my impressionable young mind was not to be corrupted with line numbers, GOTOs and similar heresy.

Sadly, he lost control of the unruly teenager.

First I abused the C preprocessor in unspeakable ways. Then I put inline assembly in my Pascal programs. And then... the Internet, ircII and for years, Perl. 😱

If not for Python, I'd still be Lost.
