"Jack learns the true meaning of freedom, commits some light insurgency"

can't find it anymore, but i remember somebody making a list of real schematics for the smallest number of machines required to bootstrap technologically from nothing. would love to be able to find it again

Very interested in the Pocket Reform. Would like to see a real headphone jack though instead of just USB. Anyone know what the price point is going to be?

MNT Pocket Reform is coming!

Here are all the technical details that are nailed down so far: mntre.com/media/reform_md/2022

You can also sign up for email updates on the project at the end of the page.

Ana Dantas returned for industrial design. The snazzy 3D art was done by Philipp Broemme. Illustrations by Anri Hennies.

@joeycastillo just unveiled a redesign of The Open Book! Also seems like they just got an account here recently so give them a follow if you are into #OSHW

I wonder if there's such a thing as guerilla gardening geocaching.

Trying to buy a degoogled, refurbished phone in Canada. Any tips on where I can do this?

Thanks. #degoogled #canada

I got my bike working a few days ago. It's been pretty great! I feel like crap if I don't do at least a little bit of exercise. Living in north america these days makes that difficult sometimes. New coworkers always offer me a ride to tim hortons at break until they learn that I like to walk lol

It's only got three gears so I probably won't be able to commute on the bike because there's a big hill but any riding is fun and better than burning petrol to go places! The brewery is my first goal 😅


I've put together a survey about the Small Internet (#gopher, #gemini, individual webpages, small community sites) and I would love your input. If you are a small internet user, please spend a few minutes and fill in your thoughts. I'm especially interested in the open response questions. This will help inform an upcoming conference talk I'll be giving at mch2022.org

Also, please boost this on fedi as much as possible and feel free to re-share on other social networks and in other communities. The more responses the better.

Energy, Air Conditioning, Architecture 

@kelbot "Pretty Good House" is really appealing as a movement, if only it could gain more traction, because it is all about making tradeoffs and not about seeking an expensive certification like Passive House US or LEED. prettygoodhouse.org/

Alright, cooled myself down, drank some fluids, ate some burritos. Time to get back to chainsawing.

Energy, Air Conditioning, Architecture 

What I find really tragic is that with all the years since AC has become basically assumed in any building or house, the way we build them has thrown the considerations for staying cool without AC out the window. So now billions? of people have homes that are designed to only be comfortable in warm weather if you have AC and trying to do otherwise is much harder because the house was not designed to stay cool any other way.

We codify our arguments under particular categories: pro-trans vs. anti-trans, racist vs. anti-racist, pro-choice vs. pro-life, etc.

But it comes down to decency vs. barbarism—civilized society vs. unmitigated tribal violence.

What kind of human being will you be concerning yourself and others?

I give no space or quarter to bigots because they are openly supporting and fighting for a society where their barbarism is normalized. They want a society where they can decide the limitations and borders of what humanity is and isn't.

I'm not going to reason with people like that because their desire to limit how we express ourselves and how we exist is an inherently unreasonable position at odds with humanity itself.

No matter what culture we identify with, I want a decent and humane society, and bigots do not.

It's that simple.

Devices, I'm a nerd 

I know this is ridiculous but I seriously use all of these regularly. This photo was not staged either. I've used all of them recently enough that they've all ended up on the desk at the same time.

Food, budget 

I'm not necessarily proud of this but the Aldi 8 pack of frozen burritos is like $4 and I can eat lunch on that for 4 days at least. Maybe even stretch it a little further by eating one burrito with something else leftover from another meal.

Please boost for reach. So, anyone that is working on FOSS projects like web apps, sites, Linux apps, desktop environments, or other user interfaces, please let me know if you want them tested for accessibility. I can do both CLI, web, and GUI testing, and app testing on Android. I'm running Debian (on a ChromeBook but that's not too important), so just give me the name of the package, or the URL of the site or app. I can also do Flatpak!
