also wish I could screenshot from Netflix but millions of hours of high-powered computer science engineer-time has gone into today's browsers to prevent us from doing that
Does anyone want to do anything with these domains? If anyone is interested tell me your thoughts. If it is interesting I will be willing to entertain the idea of me running a server for it. I will even help just don't have the cycles to do anything myself. I would even sell for cost. I bought them while back with the intention of doing something with them.I found I have enough projects.
I had extra spare time these last weeks and decided to tackle a nice #OpenBSD challenge:
uspol, ranty, long
your government has failed to keep you safe.
they have neglected the systems meant to care for the populace, raided them wholesale to the benefit of big business and billionaires.
they did not suddenly gain enlightenment and decide to pivot to being good and moral due to this crisis.
they want nothing more nor less than a return to how things were mere months ago, when they were spending less time trying to make concessions to you and more time restricting your freedoms and abusing your resilience.
please for the love of all of us stop giving them any benefit of the doubt.
stop giving them blessing to continue putting all of us in harm's way at every turn.
start demanding better from the world we share.
it doesn't have to be like this. it has never had to be like this.

Does anyone have suggestions for an online software for organizing mutual aid in a neighborhood? I'm thinking something like forum software, less ephemeral than things like Mastodon, and with email digest functionality. I'd prefer to avoid proprietary stuff like google groups, and definitely not locked into a certain social network e.g. Facebook.
People are realizing that their new "work from home" venture capitalist tools are not privacy friendly.
In my remote work guide, I've included ethical alternatives to Slack, Zoom etc. These are Matrix, Riot, Jitsi, Taiga, Basecamp.
I've used Jitsi Meet and Matrix/Riot extensively for video calls over the last few weeks and they are great alternatives 👇
Aktuell suchen Schulen fieberhaft nach Lösungen, wie sie mit ihren Schülern während der Coronakrise in Kontakt bleiben können. Viele Schulen und Verantwortliche wählen nun leider Lösungen und Dienste, die ihre Nutzer mit Google, Facebook und Co. tracken bzw. von der eigenen Infrastruktur abhängig machen.
Dezentraler Unterricht geht aber auch datenschutzfreundlich und ohne Lock-in-Effekt.
"Okay, here's the scenario. You are a crew member on a starship."
"Space travel is slow, you'll be stuck with your crewmates a long time."
"So we must get along."
"Yes. Communicate, listen, share limited resources."

Seattle Area: COVID-19 Grocery/Supply Mutual Aid! (Update)
This thing is lit.
They have more volunteers than people requesting aid at the moment. An activist group that spawned out of necessity and has grown into a full-bown aid logistics service practically overnight.
They have the capacity to help a lot more people than they're helping right now. The best thing we can do to help them is get the word out!
@mwlucas You know what this message reminds me of?

I read that book which name should only be whispered and oh boy, my greatest respect for writing it. The amount of suffering manifested itself in the lines for sure.
I'm ofcourse building my own highly-modularised browser engine in Haskell, currently voice/audio for I/O. Where I'm currently implementing features to help me avoid the temptation of scope creep.
Feel free to reuse HURL and/or Haskell Stylist in your own projects! And if you contribute to "Rhapsode", I have some interesting opportunities for you!
This would be a good thing to do during self-isolation: Improve privacy, let CPUs conserve electricity, & stop pushing people to buy new hardware.
