To think I was recommending System76 to people. Won’t be making that mistake again.

Apparently caring about accessibility is “virtue signaling” and “concern trolling”.

Well, I know exactly the kind of people who use those terms and they’re not folks I want to have anything to do with or will be recommending to anyone else in the future.

If you’re not in the US, you should buy from a local shop anyway. In the EU, we’re spoilt for choice with Tuxedo, Slimbook, StarLabs, etc.

If you can’t play on Linux in online mode due to “inappropriate content” warning, you have to install the DLC. The anti-cheat for the update somehow counts missing DLC files as “modifications”. I hope they fix it soon, it’s a pretty dumb miss.

“Just because we don’t consider lack of accessibility to be a blocker doesn’t mean we’re ableist.”

Popular opinion seems to be that and are "fighting/competing."

Sure we have our differences in philosophies and design, but it's way more akin to siblings having small spats. But in the end we are siblings in family and I like GNOME folks a lot. And if anyone attacks my siblings, I'm there to defend them.

We can and we should work together as much as possible, not just GNOME or KDE but all other DE's too like and to be the best computing experience possible.

It's not perfect and it's never gonna be because perfection is unattainable, but perfect is also enemy of good.

Let's keep doing our best. Together.

    Fedora: “The Fedora Quality Team is joining Week of Diversity with an Accessibility Test Week!

    Much like other Test Days, the goal of this week is to put Fedora through its paces and catch as many accessibility related issues as we can for our disable users.”

    Me: Fedora, your screen reader is broken.

    Fedora guy: Patches welcome 👍

    Background: It’s not just Fedora. Every Linux distribution that ships with Wayland by default – and that’s almost every major Linux distribution – ships with a broken/unusable screen reader at the moment.

    (Read that again until it really sinks in. Yep. I know. Uh-huh. Really.)

    Mamy tu jakiś speców od iptables i wireguard?
    Mam problem z tunelem miedzy siecią vpn i LAN.
    Tunel jest zestawiany przy użyciu programu RethinkDNS.
    Na starym telefonie wydaje się, że działą, ale na nowym, już nie bardzo. Z tego co zauważyłem, to na nowym telefonie działają połączenia VPN->Internet, ale połączenia VPN->LAN już nie bardzo. Kombinuję już nad tym od dobrych 12h (z przerwami) i jedyne co mi się udało zrobić, to właśnie te połączenia z Internetem.
    Oba telefony są w VPN, bo komenda wg show pokazuje je.

    Przy uruchamianiu tunelu, ustawiają się takie regułki
    [#] echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
    [#] iptables -A FORWARD -i wg0 -o enp88s0 -j ACCEPT
    [#] iptables -A FORWARD -i enp88s0 -o wg0 -j ACCEPT
    [#] iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o wg0 -j MASQUERADE

    I jeszcze jedna rzecz. Brama VPN stoi na serwerze linuksowym, do którego potrzebuje mieć dostęp.

    Gdzie może być problem? Na serwerze/bramieVPN specjalnie wyłączyłem firewalla i to także nie pomaga.

    Does anyone here have personal experience of successfully converting a CT Scan to a 3D printable file? Preferably on Linux.

    All I'm finding is outdated tutorials pointing to discontinued services.

    Hrmmm, secure your OpenSSH server, you must, young Padawan. Three simple steps to follow, there are:

    1. Password Authentication, a weakness it is. SSH Keys, use you must
    2. Root Login, a vulnerability it presents. Restrict it, you shall
    3. OpenSSH, updated it must be kept

    Remember, young Padawan, security a journey is, not a destination. Vigilant, you must remain. See for more info.

    Behold! The lair of Linus Torvalds, where the Linux kernel is forged and maintained. 🐧 But guess what? You need a fancy chair, mechanical keyboard, ergonomic mouse, bluetooth noise cancelling headphones, and six screens. I bet your code still sucks. 😒

    Linus Torvalds is standing in his home office.
