The Raspberry launches with 100% more keyboard! Snaps off XZ compression, teases their -V Linux PC, and nobody is abandoning the X server... yet.

You probably heard @RIAA used #DMCA to get @microsoft's @GitHub to remove youtube-dl, but did you know Microsoft funds RIAA as a member? We call on Microsoft (& any organizations who purports to support #FOSS) to resign from RIAA in protest.


Frictional releases a buggy Rebirth, GONNER2 gets a day-1 Linux release, DOTA fights toxicity with Overwatch, daily amdgpu firmware updates for Ubuntu, and work begins on Open Suspect. Notes & podcast

20~25 years ago, we would crack anything we could find. Games, music, movies sure. But more importantly professional software and ebooks. A whole generation of digital workers exist today because they have stolen knowledge. And that makes me happy.

Once again thinking about getting a PinePhone, now that they're shipping again.

Amnesia: The Dark Descent goes open source! Left 4 Dead 2 gets its first major update in 10 years, SDL2 comes to Unreal Tournament 99 and why buying has precisely FK and or all to do with .

DXVK breaks Pedro’s favourite game! Factorio completes their 8.5 year development cycle, open-source voice changers for , and sues iGoogle. Then faces, the CHAIRQASITION!

Took me somewhat close to a week, of actual coding and learning, rewriting my little android app on flutter.
But I made it, the first update in the last 4 years.

Pedro mutilates his box! Swiss Army USB recovery drives, Brave browsers without the BAT, open-source NDI, and Pi powered Bluetooth radios.

I'm going to show you how to record video in OBS that will import directly into Davinci Resolve (free edition) on .

That said, there's a catch.

Humble just launched the Fight for Racial Justice Bundle, a 100% to charity bundle featuring games and books. Several titles in the mix.

Steam announces the OpenXR developer preview! Humble releases a wheelie Bundle, Raspberry Pi 4 Vulkan updates, and open-source gesture support for your Logitech gerbil.

fun with linux 


I have the Zoom client installed on my computer (the only things I use it for don't need encryption). And every time I leave the computer for any length of time, when I come back, the Zoom client has started on its own.

It's not a specific interval. It's not a specific time. It just seems to be any time I'm away from the computer for more than 15 minutes; when I wake the computer back up, Zoom's sitting there, waiting.

I check running daemons, I poke at background tasks - nothing.
Finally, it occurs to me: "when I wake the computer up". So on a hunch, I check xscreensaver - which has an oooold screensaver called "zoom". I don't have that screensaver installed, but it's listed in the possible screensavers, so xscreensaver checks for it - and it doesn't just check the screensavers directory, it checks $PATH too.

I remove the "zoom" line from ~/.xscreensaver - and the problem goes away.
