I got an international call to my private number from a representative of a certain well-known database provider who was surprisingly well informed who I am and where I work.

I’m very careful to whom and when I give my private phone number and this situation is annoying. I guess someone will get a GDPR data request soon.

@lukem (#k653sma) To be honest I don’t really follow him all that much! I believe and contribute a lot to open source myself as you know, but can you characterize your summary of what you believe his stance to be?

@prologic (#k653sma) mostly because I coined that term myself for brevity. RMS is Stallman’s initials, whereas by agenda I understand his general stance on free software and non-free services online.

(#k653sma) If you’re familiar with RMS agenda then nothing new or insightful to be honest. Fairly well balanced interview in a rather peculiar medium, but I rarely see RMS in mainstream channels so that counts too.

(#lb3kalq) @hellson So the secret is to give up my back-breaking, hunched over back, eye burning day job and do say umm I dunno brick laying (I could probably do that!), or gardening (I could probably do that too!) 🤣 One day, maybe, when I retire!

The guy who invented the USB connector died. They lowered the coffin into his grave. Then they lifted it back out, turned it round, and lowered it back in again.

@antonio (#yovseiq) oh yeah, I saw it. Not great, not terrible. :) On a serious note though, the series was thrilling to watch. I was too young to witness it myself but my family could confirm general misinformation and Lugol’s iodine were indeed real.
