stolen from @Afal who stole it from twitter who stole it from reddit who stole it from goddess knows where

i've defended rms' pedantry
i believe in free software
i believe copyleft is essential
i believe AGPL3 is the best license

i disagree with those who say "software freedom isn't important these days" or that ease of use is more important

but every time RMS makes the news he undermines the FSF and the free software movement 🤦‍♂️

i just e-mailed them to discontinue my recurring donation and told them why

gonna increase my donation to software freedom conservancy instead

@fribbledom let’s be real here, you’re never actually good with cups. You just reach a point of uneasy truce. An ad-hoc ceasefire.

New hotness, Daggerfall Unity enters alpha, moving the desktop to VR, and Valve wants to change the kernel.

Streamed a little DmC last night. Wanted to see how well D9VK and Proton got along on .

Proton now ships with the experimental Vulkan-based Direct3D 9 renderer D9VK. Let’s get it enabled and see what it’s capable of.

Now that was quite intense,
It took me through July; sorting through, removing, rebuilding and updating all my 32bit packages and migrating from gentoo's 17.0 to 17.1 profile

And nothing was left in lib32
