people, I’m think about making some zines, I have prepared for everything except printing.

How is the best way to print?

Manually recopy everything by hand?
Photocopy on nice paper?
Online printing companies? Any good ones with U.K. shipping?

My thoughts on COP26 and my current, quite anti-capitalist climate crisis solution. I don't usually use Medium for this stuff, but it was the only way to get my message out to a wide audience so quickly.

I will be mirroring it on my blog in the next couple of days, which contains no JavaScript or Cloudflare etc.

Warm take opinion / FLOSS 

It profoundly doesn't matter imho if a free software program, with a cookie-cutter windows installer, has "Agree" instead of "Next" under the GPL in the license step of the install wizard.

Such a change falls very much under "nice to have, but low priority". If you've made it a pet peeve, but have no interest in producing your own patch to fix it, than that sounds very much like a you problem.

What’s going on with us-east-1 and AWS? Can someone get me up to speed? I’ve been ill for the past 48 hours and haven’t been near a computer.

I now own a typewriter. Yes, you heard me correct. Its a Brother Deluxe 220 in jet black to be precise; portable, compact, cool looking, easy to use (easier than MS Word or LibreOffice 🤢​), pretty much the ultimate essay, political manifesto, D&D campaign, zine-writing machine!

Anyone in my network know if MongoDB is a decent place to work? Treats people well, does decent with D&I, etc.? I have someone I think would be a good fit for a role there but I'd like to get a culture pulse before making the connection…

DM if you don't feel comfortable replying in public. Boosts for visibility are appreciated.

Loving game dev at the moment with Mini Micro, highly recommend: joestrout.itch.io/mini-micro

I’m currently experimenting with a protocol + client and server that implements a markup language (similar to gophermap syntax) that pushes out a TUI baked-in with Free/Turbo Vision and FPC.

I want it to be like Gopher, but designed to have interactive BITNET programs that you can link to and integrate all running from a terminal.

This quote about anarchism and right to repair caught my eye.

> Anarchists often get caught up in the world of ideas, but right to repair gives us a chance to engage practically and I’d encourage all of us to get involved.

@be In Firefox, the only addon [read extension] that I need is Ublock Origin, ad I only need that because FF stops /etc/hosts being used to block adware/malware sites.

The idea of a "good" web assumes all people are "good". Not going to happen.

US Drunk-proof car mandate 

Here’s the thing: Life is a terminal condition. We are never going to end traffic deaths or gun violence or whatever else. If we were adults, we’d accept the risk inherent to life and severely punish those who create harm to others by their selfish or reckless actions. But punishing the innocent to drive a tail end risk down a fraction of a percentage point is abjectly stupid.

Just picked up an old school Pascal programming book: ‘Mastering Pascal Programming’
