Cursor aggressively blinking - judging me for not typing anything. Sorry.

The worst part about having ÆØÅ in danish is being confused every time some savage american uses one of the letters to assuming it sounds like E, O, or A.

Yalls names sound fucking stupid.

My kitchen scale boots up with the message "hi" every time it registers pressure. Which happens a lot by accident and I'm left feeling bad for the thing because I just engage it and then leave it hanging.

So, congrats to whoever decided a kitchen scale should be anthropomorphized. I'm sure H. C. Andersen Would be impressed.

App updates is probably the only bad thing about fdroid... But jesus, updating 20 apps in fdroid...

I am once again asking myself why I am awake at 3 am

Take "walk" with a grain of salt. You basically have to jump because you constantly get stuck on trash.

I wonder how long they spent designing the trash waste land areas in Cyberpunk 2077.

Like, you're clearly not supposed to be going through it because there's no objectives out there. And you can't travel through it by car/motorcycle.

Yet there is a lot of details to these huge areas that you will only get to appreciate if you are stubborn enough to walk a kilometer through it instead of just driving around...

It's quite immersion breaking. I can't suspend my disbelief about Americans using metric.

The most futuristic part about Cyberpunk 2077 is that Americans are using the metric system.

Elastic company, relicensing, upset

Elastic company, relicensing, upset 

I feel like people aren't outraged enough about the Elastic re-licensing.

We're talking about a company that's branded itself on open source software for 9 years. Accepting 3rd party contributions made in good faith. Still writing "Open source, it's our heart" on their website.

But actually not releasing their core products under an open source license anymore.

That's betrayal of their core values.

And I bet it won't even work.

At this point I've just kinda given up.

I open chromium, without any extensions, every time I need to join a video call.

Not even worth trying to do it in Firefox and learning all the ways the video call platform is violating my freedom and privacy.

Been neglecting two pull requests on one of my repositories for probably 30 days now. Really should get that merged this weekend...

congrats to Elasticsearch in somehow managing to make Amazon of all companies come out of this as the good guy

RT @awscloud@twitter.com

We are committed to open source. To help keep Elasticsearch and Kibana open for everyone, we are announcing that we will launch new forks of both Elasticsearch and Kibana based on the latest Apache 2.0 licensed codebases. go.aws/3qEp4NM

It's simultaneously annoying and satisfying to deal with the food items expiring today 21 jan 21.

#Google starts to lock out non-official Chrome builds like #Chromium. The #web is a cricual infrastructure these days and as such we need independent browsers and rendering engines!

If you care about the free and open web you shouldn't use Chrome based browsers.
