A spaceship landed, and an alien emerged.
"Greetings, Earthlings, we come in peace. Take us to-"
"Do you have a tractor beam?"
"-your... Pardon?"
"A tractor beam. Or some other way of lifting something huge and heavy?"
"Of course, but-"
"Do you know where the Suez channel is?"

Remember, there is a generation that don't see nothing wrong here.

Boost if you get it ;)

There is also an interesting post on "communal software" which also points to issues with "free software" but takes a much more anti-capitalist stance. 2/2

This is a thought-provoking article on free software. The main argument is that users have actually a lot of different needs then what free software licenses demand. 1/2

Saw the news that Tesla is now accepting Bitcoin payments for cars, so I looked up some figures and did some math.

According to Tesla's own figures, a Model 3 saves 30 tons of CO2 emissions over its lifetime compared to a traditional car. A Model 3 costs 0.69-1.21 BTC. Mining one BTC results in 257 tons of CO2 emissions.

For the next time someone tells you Elon Musk is saving the planet.

Servicepost für die Landratten, die sich ein Schiff der Größe Evergreen Ever Given nicht vorstellen können..

Blogged about Angela Merkel, HiPPOs and decision making:

The context here is the with-drawn decision for Easter rest-days in Germany, related to Covid, of course. My post has nothing to do with the pandemic, though.

Bei der folgenden Nachricht stutze ich etwas:

Die Zahlen sind öffentlich, das Problem steht so klar vor Ihnen einen wie ein nackter Mann auf einem Altar. Was für eine Art von Warnung erwarten die? Engel mit Posaunen und der Heilige Geist, der zum Bau von Masken auffordert und sie dazu anhält, in ihrer Heim-Arche auszuhalten?

Probably the last day of cross-country skiing in the Black Forest for me. There is still a lot of snow after the last days though. This winter we really had a lot of good days for skiing. And so long: I don't remember that we would have so much snow so late in March in the last years.

Wer im Sommer gerne eine Stunde früher zur Arbeit gehen will, um eine Stunde früher freizuhaben, soll das doch machen bzw. innerhalb des Betriebs auf eine entsprechende Regelung drängen. Was keinen Sinn macht, ist es, 7 Uhr auf einmal 8 Uhr zu nennen.

@Jase the future is what concerns me. Stallman is a dinosaur and the FSF desperately needs to modernise IMO. The fact that they said "we wanted to do a video, but didn't know how" speaks volumes.

If we want to continue enticing people into FOSS, the FSF needs to up its game.
