Yet another reason not to use #Zoom's proprietary video conferencing service. They care more about their public image than their users' security, and lie about trying to silence security researchers doing responsible disclosure with hush money:

There are a number of hosted or self-hostable alternatives, including #JitsiMeet, as well as #P2P conferencing apps like #Jami, and protocols like #Tox.

Media: “Trump literally could not break the law more more.”

Politicians: “we need to ban vaping and create encryption backdoors.”

General public: “it’s spooktober!”

The best part about having a million projects at once? It's no longer "procrastination," it's "moving the ball forward a little bit on everything"

Oh wow, GitHub just invited me to be part of the GitHub Sponsors program!

That means you can now support my projects and open-source work directly through GitHub.

For the first year of the program GitHub will even match each of your donations. So if you always wanted to stick it to GitHub, now's the time 😂

Support me here: github.com/users/muesli/sponso

Pick 2-3 small tasks and get them done so that you feel a sense of accomplishment.

systemd is not an init system, it's a system manager designed to be useful way beyond simply bringing the system up.

2.) Linux home directory handling is currently a mess. Any random app can ignore XDG conventions, making it hard to be sure that a simple rsync of home is sufficient i.e. it would be working as expected if you were forced to nuke your system. From my experience, it doesn't work particularly well for backing up the configs of many programs as they write to places like /etc

The reactions to systemd-homed have predictably been, "soon there's going to be a word processor in #systemd", without these people realizing that:

1.) systemd is NOT a single binary, it's a project, an ecosystem of utilities. That's like saying to GNU; Why is there wget? I want GNU to compile stuff with GCC, why is GNU nano a thing?

Of course the goal of the GNU Project is to produce everything needed to have a libre OS - the goal of systemd is to produce everything needed to manage this OS.
