Last week, before list numbers for parties in Poland's forthcoming elections were selected by lottery by the Polish National Electoral Commission, a PiS candidate was already displaying banners that said PiS's list number was 2.

Today, list numbers were announced. PiS's is 2.

People might also not know Mastodon is not the only type of social media sites that interact here.

There is also:

@pixelfed (Like Instagram)

Peertube (Like YouTube)

(You can see how they look in the pictures in the order that they are mentioned)

You can find more decentralized social media platforms at fediverse.party/

If you have Facebook "like" buttons embedded on your website, it could make you liable for breaking GDPR privacy laws, even if it's Facebook doing the illegal stuff:

You can protect your site from legal liability (and protect your users' privacy) by removing all Facebook like buttons.

Please tell your employers/organisations about this ruling, it may help convince them that Facebook is toxic (or at least that embedded like buttons are toxic).

The thing people miss about #desktop #Linux is: it's not that Linux users are using Linux purely for ideology, in most cases. If I could get everything done on Windows in a similar amount of time with a similar level of satisfaction, I probably would.

But I can't. I can't use a tiling WM. I can't use BTRFS or ZFS for my external storage cluster. I can't have a decent package manager or functioning containerization or a command-line driven workflow.

"Does your face recog work at night?"
"At night you need infrared, and cross-match to normal photos. It's less reliable. We have a new system with silent autonomous drones, capturing hi-res 3D models using sonar."
"You've made cyborg bats?"
"Only need a non-trademarked name."
