I don't understand why GitLab is doing these things. Even on behalf of Sourcehut, there are subsets that I don't really try to compete with GitLab on. They have a place in this ecosystem and they're working to undermine it. They're making a void that I, even as a competitor, don't want to and am not prepared to fill. The community is going to suffer for their missteps.

I feel really bad for their employees. If I could help, I would, but Sourcehut isn't big enough to provide a fallback for them. To any GitLab employees who know something I can do to help, or just want to talk, I can lend a sympathetic and private ear at sir@cmpwn.com.

can we please stop saying "its like everyone forgot that..." and shaming people for not knowing incredibly niche (often fash) origins of bizarre internet things?

if you find yourself angry that someone doesn't know the origins of whats become a goofy, non-affiliated event that no one takes seriously anyway, i implore you to please take a break and pick up a hobby away from advocacy. we're only human and we need to take breaks.

Yes, it will be tremendously expensive to apply heavy trade sactions to China. But it was also tremendously expensive to liberate the slaves from the US south. Money never excuses moral failure.

thinking about going back in time and telling child Maddie that in the future we find out that dinosaurs used to have feathers. i would also probably mention to her that she's a girl but i mostly want to see how she reacts to the feathers thing

Weird how most "crimes against humanity" are crimes with a finite number of victims, but crimes like fossil fuel profiteering or the destruction of the rainforest, where humanity itself is the victim, aren't actually crimes at all

@sir do you see the blog as something that there is only one of per instance of sr.ht (or only on sourcehut.org) or are you envisioning a blogs.sr.ht where anyone can set up a blog?

Look around. What's something beautiful near you right now?

@sir I’m a software developer who uses a Mac as their daily driver and has experience using Linux on the command line. I want to get a new laptop, but Macbooks are too expensive and Windows is gross, so I’m thinking of getting a laptop and installing Linux on it. Are there any guides you can recommend for getting started with GUI Linux/what distro would you recommend?
