All the "piracy is bad" takes remind me of that time the RIAA claimed Limewire owed them $75 trillion for piracy.

More than the entire world's annual GDP.

More than the whole industry made since the phonograph's invention in 1877.

Realizing it kind of hurts sometimes when certain social skills don't come to you at all naturally that do for other folks that you really, really wish did

I believe I MAY have conquered backlight support on i915 for panels using DPCD backlight support today! Finally got a chance to get panels working which use PWM for certain panel functionalities and DPCD for others.
The days of you needing to set i915.enable_dpcd_backlight=1 on your kernel command line should hopefully be over soon!

This is one of the many organizational decisions of Linux that honestly, does not help. And I worry from time to time how this is definitely a barrier for folks contributing. I've heard the arguments for mailing lists, I've used them myself for over half a decade. And honestly, nah. It's not easier to keep track of things, and it's not easier to do reviews on people's code. Things are more likely to get lost as well, and it's just generally a pain.

While I myself complain about modern tech sometimes, honestly, if you want to write good code and make cool things you need to learn that the world is going to change around you whether you like it or not.

So yeah this is me saying why on earth are we still using mailing lists for Linux kernel? Like, I don't care how well they work for you. The barrier of entry for contributing should maybe not be targeted at only people who grew up in the 80s?

Spread this to black trans or non-binary people you know: the Marsha P. Johnson Institute is paying $500 directly to black trans or non-binary folks, with priority given to black trans women and those who have experience as sex workers or have been formerly incarcerated

Gotta be honest if you are complaining about the housing market, considering the majority of my generation may never be financially capable of owning a home all you're doing is saying "Well I have money why don't these people care that me and these other people with money will loose some of our riches?? Isn't everyone rich??"

This sucks, and I hate to ask, but I can't pay some upcoming bills and I could use some help so that I can continue to drive my car, use my electricity, and so on.

If you have a spare buck or two, I'd really appreciate your help. Thank you.

I'm sure one liberal is even trying to figure out the connection between the democrats being useless and incompetent, and Russia

And I'm sure some other brilliant genius liberal is thinking how leftists are just dumb, we just don't know how the system works! These things always Take Time™ (because everyone knows that's what we have plenty of, time, not like the entire country is currently burning or anything)

I'm sure some other liberal is thinking to themselves how all of these evil leftists who think that the democrat's don't have things under control are fools, and that Manchin and Sinema are just "appealing to their voter base" despite the fact every single fucking poll seems to disagree

I'm sure they're probably still somewhere jacking themselves off about how they told us this would happen if we didn't win a congressional majority, while totally ignoring the fact that this never seems to be a problem for republicans, and that maybe holy shit your political candidates should try to fucking appeal to human beings instead of you just blaming people for not putting up with the trash you keep offering

Where are liberals right now? What's the current excuse they're trying to peddle for doing nothing now? Are they even trying to justify this shit anymore?

How in the actual fuck do they ever expect to get re-elected??? Hi I'm Nancy Pelosi/some generic democrat, vote for me and I'll let a huge portion of the country just go homeless and fail to do literally anything my entire term

I know that the democrat's don't care but holy fucking shit would it kill them to at least TRY and make it look like they care? They're /really/ just going to fucking go on break, while the moratorium is expiring and let people just be evicted? Are you fucking serious???
