"Jaywalking" as a crime was invented by car companies in the 20s, to shift blame to people on foot for being hit by cars. "Littering" was invented in the 50s by paper cup and tin can manufacturers to shift blame to people who drop trash. The phrase "personal carbon footprint" came from a BP marketing campaign intended to shift blame for climate change away from petrochemical companies to individuals.

When they call themselves "the party of personal responsibility"?

This is what that means.

I usually burned many ISO images to a USB stick to install an OS and/or to perform any other task(s). Now when I discovered ventoy.net some months ago, I realized that I no longer need to do so anymore. No more Etcher or any other USB Stick Burner. I just placed the amount of ISOs I need based on the USB depending on it's storage capacity, boot into my preferred choice and I'm good to go. Ventoy makes it so easy. Support the project folks.

#Yggdrasil is a #mesh network that uses #IPv6 addresses derived from public keys, is end-to-end encrypted, automatically discovers peers on a LAN, can be used privately as a VPN or globally. A very cool piece of work towards #decentralization . I write about it at changelog.complete.org/archive

Can we rename "SAAS" to "FAAS" I.e., f u as a service? Or "RAAS" I.e. ra.. U as a service

If you are an #android developer looking for ideas on a new app that might be missing:

➡️ a simple file/directory synchronisation app supporting WebDAV (and ideally also rsync via SSH) ⬅️

(no need for proprietary cloud solutions, just open standards) is definitely lacking in the FOSS world. Unfortunately, not even the Nextcloud Android app is capable of *synchronizing* selected directories bidirectionally. What a pity. Anyone?

Boosts welcome. Apps *VERY* welcome :awesome:

Anyway, there are some really great early recordings currently trickling up through various places and surfacing.

More downloads should become available in the coming weeks and months, and we (you and I and anyone else in the country that is interested) will keep pouring through them and surfacing little gems.

I just wrote a little blog post why you should create your own music library and why use the free and open source MusicBrainz Picard for this.
