> As well as cancelling his Spotify subscription and taking down most of his music catalogue, [Sameer Gupta is] now encouraging others to do the same by offering a 95-percent discount on his "entire Bandcamp" to "anyone else who is cancelling their Spotify." "This has been a long time coming anyway but the Spotify CEO's desire to invest in war AI tech was the proverbial straw that broke the camel's back," Gupta told RA.
job hunting (boosts welcome)
idk if it's allowed here, but i'm currently on the hunt for a flexible part time job (ideally no more than 16 hours/week, and should be at least £10/hour, or around that much, no less than £9/hour) that can be done remotely/from home, within the UK timezone (if applicable).
i'm mainly looking for jobs that are either:
- tech support
- technical writing
- frontend web development
- editorial writing (i.e. writing for articles)
so if anyone can help me out with this, that'd be great
I worked retail years ago. The general public didn't call today "Black Friday" then, that phrase was used behind the scenes by retail employees who were dreading their worst working day of the year. "Black Friday" was basically saying "we're doomed," it wasn't a HAPPY expression at all.
Later the marketing types got hold of the term, it began popping up in ads, and now the shopping hordes are all "yay Black Friday!"
It makes my retail-survivor heart sad every time an expression of pain coined by the overworked and underpaid is used to entice more shoppers.

Naive/clueless git question: I used "git clone --bare [local-repo-path] repo.git" to produce a bare repository folder and uploaded that to my static file server. Then I tried "git clone https://my.server/repo.git" and it fails ("fatal: repository 'https://my.server/repo.git' not found"). Visiting that same url in the browser produces 403 (there is no index.html in that folder of course) which at least tells me the folder is there. Is my approach too naive or is there some way to make this work? :D
I noticed that I never come around to reading all the online texts I bookmark from fedi, so I installed a screen reader extension with the idea to listen through my ever-growing backlog during eating ... and it works like a charm! Here's the firefox extension I'm using:

@gnome hey there! ever since I donated to gnome i'm receiving newsletter emails. i've tried unsubscribing twice, but this is where the link takes me (see screenshot), I have no credentials for this, how can i unsubscribe? thanks for your help!
Finally got to read Darius Kazemi's "How to run a small social network site for your friends" (https://runyourown.social/) – and i can recommend!
Permacomputing Update 2021
@rra @320x200 yay for the push towards sustainable operation! i hope this is not an annoying question but is there any chance or way to set up yearly paid recurring subscriptions with a greater amount? (e.g. the Lava Heron tier with yearly payment?) i'm asking because 1 vs 12 transactions per year helps my bookkeeping stay a little more sane, and i would imagine it increases the amount of money you actually receive too? thanks for keeping the ship afloat!
Starting today and throughout this week the PIXELvienna 14 conference for computer graphics and animation is happening again (free and mostly online). We've got a fine selection of artist talks with Q&A, and I'm especially happy that more than half of our speakers this year are queer or female, something we failed to achieve last year.

It took me a while to acknowledge this for myself, but over the years I've developed a strong disinterest in doing traditional graphic design work using traditional tools (i.e. manual work in inkscape and such).
Recently I found that I do enjoy traditional graphic design work if I build it in code and as parametric systems, so I've decided to adopt this practice whenever I can now (and I might release some of it as free software where it makes sense).
Now for this year's Buch Wien fair I'm currently crafting a short animated presentation for the booth of a privately run scifi/fantasy/etc. library in vienna: I scanned book covers I found in the library, created a simple data manifest for the presentation (a JSON array of objects, each describing a slide - text, image path, alignment, etc.), and wrote a script (currently about 200 LOC) that renders the animated slides and pumps them through ffmpeg to get the finished booth video. \o/
I don't think I'll be going back to manual workflows. (:
FOSS vector graphics application "VGC Illustration" is now 100% funded for a 1.0 release in july 2022! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/vgcsoftware/vgc-illustration-the-drawing-app-of-the-future Thanks everyone for spreading the word, I'll cut back on commercial content now again. (*/▽＼*)
whoop VGC Illustration kickstarter is now at 71%!! I think this is actually happening, f*ck yeah https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/vgcsoftware/vgc-illustration-the-drawing-app-of-the-future
Here's an opportunity to write some FOSS graphics history, everyone: "VGC Illustration" presents a technologically novel - and having tried it I will say *artistically superior* - approach to illustrative vector graphics. It's developed by a 1 (soon 2) person team that has serious industry and technical research credentials (Pixar, Siggraph) while at the same time being fervent open source lovers and actually developing their research as FOSS since years. Boris (the lead dev) has now fully dedicated his life mission to making VGC Illustration (and soon Animation) a sustainable open source business, and all he's asking for is pretty much peanuts considering the magnitude and scope this could soon have. If the kickstarter (which started only an hour ago and is already 10% funded!) does not work out, VGC is probably dead, so I think this is a lifetime opportunity for us to give support to establish a new powerful player and unique technological cornerstone in FOSS graphics. To conclude: Please, for the love of FOSS, throw money at this! :)
