I wrote a tool help me create/delete a bunch of VMs at once, for my local libvirt. It also creates an SSH host certificate for the VMs so that I don't have to accept new host keys, or delete them from my known hosts -file manually.

Personally I don't mind (too much) seeing adds in an app, but showing adds is often the first step in monetizing users. The next step is selling user data, and we see that happening over and over again.

If possible I try to use free and open software where the user has at least a theoretical possibility to be the owner of their own data.

@metalune @XxAlexXx @person

"Without adds there wouldn't be free software" is not really true. Most of the Linux infrastructure is free, and virtually none of it is paid with adds.

Lots of software is developed just for the fun of it, and especially Apple used to have a very healthy share-ware environment where you paid once for every major version of software.

Major companies and app-stores have normalized monetizing users through adds and the sale of personal data.

Kdrama: hyena 

An average Kdrama heroine is a typical damsel in distress who needs help 24/7... Every single drama is a variation of Pride and Prejudice... Behind every awkward female, there is a rich and handsome guy, ready to help, pay, save, and give a piggy-back ride, when needed.

Hyena's main character eats dudes for breakfast though. They even made her less good-looking, for some weird reason. Thoroughly recommended series:

And keeping around too much history might be more of a bug then a feature.

Something said years ago will probably be taken out of (historical) context and have a much greater net-negative then value.

To quote one of the major evil-doers of the 20th century:

“Think of the press as a great keyboard on which the government can play.”

It's either somebody "important" in government, or it's a vested business interest, it's the way of the civilized "west".

@tek

Difficult to see why you should provide *three* pieces of identifying information for little-league. And then allowing them to basically do whatever they want with that information is just adding insult to injury.

Sometimes I feel a bit paranoid reading "the small print", but there really *are* a$$hats in the world.

@mab Yes! The (better) series are definitely a step up from regular (western) series (style wise).

What I also appreciate is the way they are layed out: usually 16 episodes, but it's one long story. It's great for binge-watching 😎. Unlike American series which wrap up the story in one episode (although the overall story-line can be longer). This makes the Korean series slower, but more detailed.

It won't be everybodie's cup of tea, but I'm thoroughly hooked.

TV / media consumption 📺

Don't know about you, but for me the excessive amount of being at home has changed my media consumption quite a bit. I both watch more TV, but also less of what I used to watch in the past. My wife got me on Korean dramas, and despite not being the target audience, I'm totally into it!

OpenBSD is (relatively) small and tightly integrated. This makes it possible to more or less understand what is happening on your desktop. Installation is simple, adding software as well.

A big minus is that a lot of software you're used to on Linux have not been ported (yet), or can't be ported (easily) because it hard depends on some Linux functionality.

Still, after Linux, it's my favorite desktop. On an (older) Thinkpad it's close to perfect.

Openstreetmap, being a nerd, is one of the fun-things on my phone, celebrated it's 100 millionth change-set, amazing!

They also have weekly news which is fun to read (nerd fun, that is):

@ljwrites that is some discovery-writing!

Unpopular opinion: Using FreeBSD for the desktop is going back in time and using Linux from X years ago, which is just a waste of time. (On the server a different story)

OpenBSD, though, is a real alternative to Linux (desktop), it is very different from Linux, which it's own strengths and you actually gain something from switching: it's a small, tightly integrated secure system that is possible to understand what is going on under the hood.
