@conservancy Software Freedom Conservancy, one of the most important organizations in #FLOSS #opensource #freesoftware , is hiring a full-time employee. Remote, not limited to the United States. Really interesting, flexible job description.

an important report has just been published by my friend emmi: The Decentralized Web of Hate

Weird Windows problem: I have a folder that’s got read-only permissions, and no matter how many times I change that in the folder properties, it goes right back. Is there a way to fix this?

Come join me on @shadsy’s stream right now - we’re playing Moon, a strange and fascinating Mac adventure game from 1995!

Bought something that came with a CD containing 313KB of data. Honestly, still happy that happens in this day and age.

Mount Pleasant’s Dandelion Records is really badly affected by yesterday’s fire. They took a lot of damage, even though they were able to save a lot of their stock, and they need help to get back on their feet. Taking donations, details here.
