Where are some places/communities you see CC licenses being used on software? (Other than Stack Overflow, which is the first one I think of.)

(Yes, boosts appreciated!)

What's up with people exploting production systems in the name of research and acting surprised when the security issues is tackled?

If society can't find a way to consistently, reliably, and seriously fund FLOS software, then society can't have good software. Period.

untrunc is the ****BEST**** software ever. it just saved my ass. everyone: please disregard what I said. I managed to unfuck this MP4 file. see: github.com/anthwlock/untrunc

it takes another file as reference, with moov atom intact, and uses that to fix your broken mp4 file.

This reminds me of the good ole xfishtank, @huy_ngo

Hey #python :python: users, @mcsinyx is creating a decentralized Python packages distribution, with pre-resolved package dependency much like a Linux distro repository. The project needs help with package declaration, currently for those listed in todo.sr.ht/~cnx/ipwhl/5

Any help is appreciated 🙏

@hund, in theory you can force the client to display it as flowed and in most of the cases it won't break. Though such behavior is nonstandard and you'll need to advocate hard for your client to support it.

@huy_ngo and @pizza_pal, that's when we only consider some human languages in discussion mode. Poems should be soft wrapped in a special way or never at all, and code snippets (the new kind of poems) must be displayed as-is, since whitespaces play an important role in readability.

People working together must agree upon the width, some will be unhappy, but if it's not clear already, dealing with code on a phone screen is good for neither eyes nor mental health.

@huy_ngo, for plaintext documents, hard wrapping is to aid version control and CLI tools (it's drastically easier and cheaper to work on the basis of lines instead of words), so basically we're limited by the technology of our time. Documents in markup languages can be reformatted or graphically rendered when represented to users though.

Emails are a bit different. There is format=flowed, but it's only supported by like half of the email clients.

Kudos to the #Tusky Vietnamese translator who translated toot as tút :)
Funny because that's what many people already called FB posts that.

Oh the irony, @huy_ngo, that the blogspam uses Google Analytics. Here is the original article: signal.org/blog/the-instagram-
