Faith + I quit sugar, and then realised stuff
4/ actually, it's a lot like religious *repentance*. True repentance for a wiccan means things like burning all your craft books and getting rid of the stuff - to stop eating sugar i basically had to not have it in the house, put away the junk food cookbooks, and go looking for 'real' food to eat instead.
It was really hard to quit, but as i cleaned sugar out of the house and learnt new ways to eat, it felt like repentance a bit - except I didn't get any real reward, at least not yet... i just have no crutch at 3pm when i'm tired and have low blood sugar. hmph
Also then our family have literally been throwing wrapped chocolates into our front yard, handing chocolate eggs to the kids, bringing us cake, and offering us biscuits with icing on top.
They mean well and are just trying to meet social obligations but i wonder if it's a bit like that with unbelieving family in a faith context - you're invited to watch shows you've decided not to anymore, or drink more than you were going to, or whatever your convictions are
Despite threats and withdrawal of support from former and current corporate patrons, FSF has reaffirmed their commitment to keep RMS on the Board of Directors. I hate to admit I was dragging my feet on renewing my FSF membership to financially support their cause -- because of the anti-FSF FUD -- but this settles it for me. I'm donating later today after I'm done with work.
RMS's statement: "I'm working on being less tone-deaf."
@everlastingrocks @rose_myrtle there are multiple issues with MMS support, one of the major ones being that MMS is geographically in another area as most developers are. I can't work on it because it just isn't a thing here.
The other issue is that the technical implementation of mms is kinda horrible. Some people have made implementations that work though and currently in the slow process of upstreaming it to the 10 projects in the tech stack to glue it all together

Websites that are utterly broken because their owners intentionally placed behind #cloudflare are annoying. Search-engines and the likes should have a button to filter cloudflare-broken sites so they don't show up and waste our precious time.
@masterofthetiger unclear. we suspect that both will be about the same - probably two years ish based on similar sars cases. but we can't possibly know until we actually see serum antibody tests start coming up negative. and there's some talk in immunology circles about memory T cell immunity being created that doesn't show up on serum tests. shrug! we'll know more in the future.
From heaven God looks out on humans, to see if any are wise and care for God.
But all have turned bad, the taint is on all; not one does good, no, not one.
Haven’t been offered one yet.
Provisional emergency FDA approval sounds like a clinical trial. I don’t participate in clinical trials.
The scientific experts keep changing the recommendations and tend to equivocate. I’m not convinced that they know what they are doing.
Sing, O People of God
Sing, O people of God!
His glory’s in the cloud;
Your sins thrown in the deepest sea,
He gave you purity.
Sing and shout for joy,
Return to God and know
His grace and goodness know no end;
And all your prayers ascend.
Life in Christ is yours,
From flowing grace he pours
All blessing into your open heart;
In love you’ve been redeemed.
@progo I know that it would be a big risk to install KDE/Qt on my computer as I expected exactly this to happen.I only didn't expect it to happen two weeks after installing it already 😲 Let's see if KDE will make a open source fork.Well,they have to,otherwise KDE would be dead.
Looks like Qt is over.
> The Qt Company has followed up on its plan to make long-term support releases commercial-only by closing the source for 5.15 today, earning protests from open-source contributors who say that the 6.0 release, which remains open, is not yet usable.
Happy to meet you wherever you are on your journey (software or spiritual)
