A client of mine is hiring ~5 remote positions; all of which require 4+ years of production experience across the following specialities:
The team is all very sweet, and ethnically and gender diverse. HMU via DM if you want links!
Wat is de #FNV toch een nepvakbond!
I just noticed today this instance has been running for over a year. It flew by so quickly, never any downtime, any problems at all. Massive shout-out to @mastohost for their great service!
DuckDuckGo burned a truckload of goodwill with me today
Their DDG-branded web browser for Android has a feature which [it doesn't matter what it does by design], but as a side effect it sends every URL you visited to DuckDuckGo's servers. That is the single worst thing they could do as a "privacy" focused web browser.
When this was pointed out to them, they doubled down. For a year. It took an HN front page (in the comments section they doubled down *again*) and 10 hours of arguing with them before the CEO stepped in and agreed to remove the feature.
8 days of notice period left, then 2 weeks holiday, one week prep at the new company's HQ, and I'll be #FullRemote from then on.
I guess I have Covid to thank for speeding up my plans by a few years. Funny how things go sometimes.

Apparently, the uptake of Microsoft's "Windows Linux Subsystem" is miniscule despite it being blared from all MS PR speakers at full volume. Smart technologists realise that enclosing Linux within Windows is a stage in Embrace, Extend, Extinguish. Locking the magnificent eagle, symbol of freedom, into a dingy little cage... is not a compelling proposition. Just drop Windows and use Linux. Only a fool puts on the shackles voluntarily.
29 mai, Twitter masque un tweet de Trump qui ne respecte pas ses règles d'utilisation (glorification de la violence). Le message n'est pas supprimé car "sa disponibilité peut présenter un intérêt pour le public"
5 juin, Twitter supprime un tweet de Trump. Pour quel motif ? Incitation à la haine ? Appel au meurtre ? Diffamation ? Ca doit être bien grave pour être supprimé, non ?
Le motif est : violation du droit d'auteur.
I see so many people trying to explain/apologize for various forms of violence whether it be breaking windows, starting fires, looting, or throwing shit at cops
coming up with stuff like "oh it's all provocateurs" or "it's white supremacists" or "oh it's mostly white people" and like
I don't get why everyone is scrambling to come up with excuses for why people who've been beaten down for centuries now wouldn't justifiably and understandably snap?
