Unity enchances willpower.

Unity in name of Peace, also in name of cooperation, also in name of disarmament, also in name of open borders, also in name of liberation increases the will towards Peace.

I have upgraded my laptop RAM from 2GB to 8GB. It is amazing how, in middle of 2022, I was using a laptop with as little as 2GB of RAM! All thanks to Linux, Zram and ArchLinux :-D

Being constantly angry and outraged at the constantly terrible world events means that you have basic human empathy but it also means that you are being constantly traumatized.

Remember that you can't help others unless you help yourself first.

Putting an end to DRM helps us achieve freedom on our devices (and avoid e-waste). This is what @fsf has been fighting for! If you are able, please donate before July 8 and help us reach our spring goal. Read more how you can help fight for #UserFreedom:

Bye bye internet as we used to know it …

Tech firms will be required by law to protect their British users from racism, death threats, sexual exploitation, dodgy adverts, anorexia and more

OK, time to turn myself off and on again.

Night all, see you on the other side.

Today I finally deactivated my Instagram account.

Boycott gnu!

gnu/Emacs is theft from James Gosling code!

Everyone should see this video:

The hell with free software movement! Fuck you Stallman!

Today, I have learned how to use mutt's regular expressions. It is awesome.

This can change my current email directory structure. I finally feel like I can retrieve any information out of my emails :-)
One of my best moves was start using mutt and ditching Thunderbird.

Thunderbird is still the best GUI for email, but so much RAM usage for reading email? :-/

Mutt is way better!

War is neither glamorous nor attractive. It is monstrous. Its very nature is one of tragedy and suffering. -- Dalai Lama

Well too damn bad we ain’t paying our money to address your fragile self-esteem.

I am starting to call things by its name. Instead of the name 'big tech' I am calling it 'big surveillance', until big tech companies start to act more human towards others.
'Big surveillance' is a more accurate description of those companies.
