So today I noticed the Sigur Rós store has moved to Warner Music and removed all their album digital downloads that were available, free and paid. So this is a reminder to everyone that international licensing deals just wipe music and art off the internet all the time with no warning. Own! Your! Music! Streaming services are nice for discovering new music but they pay nothing to artists, and it can all be taken away instantly unless you own and store the files yourself. #music

Makers of bamboo cups claim their products are reusable and ecologically friendly. German consumer group Stiftung #Warentest tested 12 brands of bamboo-based containers and argues that it's best to avoid them.
It has come to my attention that there are those on Mastodon who think that anyone who doesn't agree with their politics should be cast out of the federation.
Please stand up for Freedom of Speech.
True Freedom of Speech means you will have to deal with the fact that not everyone thinks the same way as you and will therefor come across views that either make you happy or extremly angry.
Communication is the key to making the world a better place and the only way that progress can be made.
If you lock people out becase they don't agree with you, you are only hurting those you claim to care about because those with extreme views will continue to speak, with the only difference being that no one will challenge them.
Arrogance is the biggest threat to our society.
Looks like #Mastodon is not working with elasticsearch 7.2.
My brother once asked me if there was a function to produce a calendar grid from a list of dates in Google Sheets. I replied with a single-cell formula that took in a list of dates and outputted a calendar. It used SEQUENCE(), REGEXMATCH(), and a double-nested ARRAYFORMULA(), and it locked up the browser for 15 seconds every time it ran. I think he learned a lot about asking me things.
PostSignum, the Microsoft-trusted (and only MS-trusted) Czech CA has issued and then revoked an invalid HTTPS wildcard certificate for *http://galmed.cz (no dot between * and g) https://crt.sh/?id=1622168478 Seems to be an isolated incident but still makes you wonder wtf
Why is software created using taxpayers’ money not released as Free Software?
* Tax savings: Similar applications don't have to be programmed from scratch every time.
* Collaboration: Major projects can share expertise and costs.
* Serving the public: Applications paid by the public should be available for everyone.
* Fostering innovation: With transparent processes, others don't have to reinvent the wheel.
