Dear Libre Lounge Listeners,
It appears many proprietary podcast aggregators can't handle both mp3 and ogg in the same feed, and lots of people say they can't listen to the show, which prevents them from becomming Free Software supporters.
So we're moving Ogg Vorbis to a new feed starting next week.
We'll announce again.
If you don't care which format, or prefer mp3, nothing to see/change/do.
Saw this on /r/traa
Literally was thinking about this the other day, listening to science podcasts. People love to talk about how there are two sexes so there are two genders and that's just fact. But the world is SO fucking weird, and the number of species that are hermaphroditic or something else entirely is very significant
trump, data deletion
One thing we do know is that it isn't mathematically possible to force someone to delete (or not share) information once they have it. I feel up and down about this fact at various times. Here's a useful time though: Trump's staffers seem to be deleting tweets he made with "invaders" and "infested" in them; here they are preserved https://factba.se/topic/deleted-tweets
When I was a student I used LaTeX and got used to creating reasonably well typeset documents with almost no effort at all, after the initial learning curve.
In my middle age I use Google Docs to write documents, because it's the easiest way for co-workers to comment on them. The documents are ugly, horrible typesetting. Also, the writing experience is worse than typing in BASIC listings into a Commodore 64.
Me, weeks ago: I'll follow all the people who seem interesting.
Me, last week: The flood on my timeline is overwhelming, I'd better unfollow a few people.
Me, this week: Boy, the fediverse is quite and boring now.
If you have Facebook "like" buttons embedded on your website, it could make you liable for breaking GDPR privacy laws, even if it's Facebook doing the illegal stuff:
You can protect your site from legal liability (and protect your users' privacy) by removing all Facebook like buttons.
Please tell your employers/organisations about this ruling, it may help convince them that Facebook is toxic (or at least that embedded like buttons are toxic).
