The WWW should be made out of small interlinked communities and services, not out of a few giant ones. It was explicitly designed for the former, after all

"It is unfortunate that we have to fork the whole project to change the name"

It is unfortunate that the name matters to you at all.

My first thought when hearing about Denuvo for Android was "exactly how different will it behave to a power virus?" considering games are already pushing the limits of what mobile SoCs consider an acceptable workload.
DRM punishes customers. Run-time decrypt & obfuscation-first code already seems dodgy on laptops (where many gaming laptops are on mains) but mobile: I know what I'd avoid ever installing (if not hidden from store listings).

When your only hammer is JavaScript, everyone else's thumb looks like a nail

So not only is trying to ban cross-posting, they don't even want to allow RSS feed posting.

Linux is again refusing to output any audio to my headphone jack. Worked just yesterday. Any ideas?

At programing conference:

45 minutes talk
First 25-30 minutes spent talking about philosophy.

On last ten minutes talking about technology that let's systems to be fully atomic and reliable.

Why don't you start with that? It's boring to listen about philosophy if you don't understand what you can get from it. Start with advantages, then talk how.

Your periodic reminder that Gmail is constructing a wall around its users, slowly trapping them inside its walled garden. Escape out of it while you still can.

It like Slack and IRC again, but this time the attack is on the most popular federated communication system on the planet.
