Here's how it works on sourcehut:
You pay us the subscription fee of your choice and you get access to our services. We spend it on maintaining and upgrading the hardware, and paying for staff to handle development, operations, support, and on-call.
Because we don't take money from investors, we're only accountable to users, and if we aren't working in your interests, we lose our revenue. We are incentivized to work for you, not to generate a return.
Because we're running 100% free software, we're held accountable because anyone can take our shit and run it on their own servers, or even bootstrap a competing company using our own software. We've made it easy to run out out of business if we lose your trust.
How Balkan troll farms are spreading coronavirus disinformation | ZDNet https://www.zdnet.com/article/how-balkan-troll-farms-are-spreading-coronavirus-disinformation/
Fighting racism is not unlike removing mold in the bathroom. You're wondering why it is there in the first place. You loathe wasting time for it. You have to protect yourself and yet be rigorous. Only wiping the surface is not enough, it will quickly resurface. And you have to constantly be on the watch thereafter, since it will likely come back.
But it has to be done, because it is toxic!
Also changing the environmental setting might helt. Dry it out.
Midi controlled portable mixer https://qua.name/jsilence/midi-controlled-portable-mixer
I'm looking for some motivated computer programmers to learn and collaborate with.
I am the sole developer at my job, and the (mostly) sole developer for all of my side projects; and to be frank, I've been lonely.
My goals are to further study mathematics and computer programming fundamentals in order to become a true professional and not just some "guy who makes webapps". I want to contribute meaningfully to my field and the world.
Feel free to boost, dm, and share links.
@screenless, the equivalent of your principles in computer music is going #dawless. Ditching the universal computer interface for dedicated synths and musical equipment. Some of these have no display at all, not even small ones and 'knob per function' is a thing. The modularity, and the limitations of a #dawless setup spur creativity. The haptics of the knobs encourage fiddling around, getting creative and simply enjoying the musical moment.
Going full Regolith (Part one) https://qua.name/jsilence/going-full-regolith-part-one
The rotary encoders I have in mind:
Thinking about building a 4 chan stereo mixer in the likes of #syntherjacks 4sum, but midi CC controlled. Maybe with a teensy and nice RGB LED rotary encoders.
A smallish device for hooking up Volcas, POs and small synths alike. Sending out a squar pulse with the midi clock for synchronizing would also be a nice feature.
Anyone interested in collaborating? Would be Open Hardware.
Re-setup my Thinkpad X1 Carbon gen5 with Ubuntu 20.04 ZFS option and installed Regolith desktop. Mi gusta mucho.
Had a Xubuntu i3 diy desktop up until now, luke smith style, but with much less love. It was lacking a lot of polish. Worked, but some kinks I was not able to iron out. Looking forward to the Regolith restart. Happy so far with what I see.
Anyone on lobste.rs willing to give me an invite? Would be much apprechiated. #lobsters
Our 4yr old daughter found the childrens headphones I bought her for christmas. She was thrilled and told my wife: 'Look mom, dad is going to give me headphones as a present. Let's put them back so he won't notice I know. Don't tell him anything!'. Gold. #awesomestdaughterever
