I really must get on and do something more productive! :-)
It's just so much fun messing with one-liners and watching the blinking lights...

@MutoShack You worry too much. How about you just take this weekend to just not give a shit about anything? Nothing. Don't care. No striving. Nada. Patch up the minor fallout (if anything!) on Monday. Eff it.

Liberal Party delegates voted to pass not one but two basic income resolutions at their national convention that ran from April 8-10, making basic income the governing party’s second most important policy issue.

No one should ever make the mistake of thinking that a corporation is "good" - even the corporation that does consistent good today is liable to changes in ownership and management in the future that can drastically alter its conduct.

By all means, cheer the things that companies do, when they benefit the public - and condemn the things that do harm.

Always fight for the user, never for the system.

Accessibility and FOSS 

I recognise that it's a chicken and egg type of issue. It is true that some FOSS developers work for BigTech and are highly paid. Those people tend to be highly visible poster children, but they're really a small minority of all FOSS developers and they're typically working on enterprise cloud products and not the sort if apps which most of us use on the desktop. The desktop itself is also increasingly marginalised as everything goes to Android.

The average FOSS project is one or two people with occasional driveby contributors. These projects don't have the budget of Microsoft, so they don't have anyone dedicated to checking and improving accessibility, which is a large and complicated area of specialist knowledge.

Also the people using accessibility features will often have neither money nor ability to contribute patches. This is a limitation of any DIY project, where the doing requires preexisting access.

To overcome this requires organisations based on solidarity, but as a movement free software has struggled to devise any such second order organisations. There is Conservancy, but they are focussed on legal and administrative support. There probably needs to be a comparable organisation for accessibility, which can assist the one or two developer projects.

Also I've got my scale weights & scale out so I can weigh some watches.

What?

Why would I do that?

I started to learn new CG software by myself because my school doesn't have the class. Almost every cg image or animation that I like are made by cinema4d. I have to learn this! :)

Well, it's been an amazing week for weather! :-) Plus temps all week. Oh, weird, I just read that first bit in french! :-) Mastodon is changing me!
Anyhow, clear blue skies and now I can plant trees, albeit at a rate several times slower than a 'real' tree planter. We're now out of trees though until I go get more from the nursery a couple of hours away.
Just pruning some grand firs that got missed last year tomorrow. Still a bit of snow on the ground back there, but not much.
