@[email protected] I'd just like to interject for moment. What you're refering to as New Coke, is in fact, GNU/Coke, or as I've recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Coke. Coke is not a soft drink unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU beverage made useful by the GNU ingredients, mixing techniques and vital bottling technologies comprising a full soft drink as defined by COLIX.

(likewise, initiatives like uTensor, TensorFlow Lite, etc. seem to almost always be about easing "deployment" to devices in order to make "inference" faster— they're never about making it faster/easier to train your own models. anecdotally it feels like over the past 3–4 years, people have stopped even pretending that training a ML model can be done by someone without specialized training and specialized hardware—"democratizing" demos/tutorials are all about using pre-trained models now)

Firefox admits they will eventually be sending all of your DNS to Cloudflare. Cloudflare will monetize your internet browsing, no matter how much their PR people say they are.

If you want to disable that, go to "about:config", and set "network.trr.mode" to 5.

The values are: 0 - default off, 1 - race, 2 TRR first, 3 TRR only, 4 shadow, 5 off by choice

I'm pretty sure the splash screen still calls the program "The GIMP", or at least did into the 2010s

just discovered that the name of the instruction used in Burroughs B-series multiprocessors to send interrupts to other processors was called HEYU

Global politics. Internet Archive. Terrorism. 

The french government issues 500 takedown notices to the internet archive, claiming that large portions of the archive (which are otherwise perfectly legal) are "terrorist content" including Project Gutenberg, the Prelinger Archive, the Grateful dead collection, and some CSPAN archive.

Are you a french person? Will you complain to your government?

I could use some help. ($) 

I could really use $5 to buy some food to last until my food stamps show up in a week.

Thanks!
