ukpol, tactical voting 

Ooh so the whole decentralising thing is getting really good but not only that, it's bringing back stuff that got discontinued! The equivalent of Google the sharing system github.com/bilde2910/hauk is pretty impressive!

Oh also, I need to get to the bottom of this: hot/cold take references whether the take is:

1. About something new/something old
2. Hastily put out/carefully considered and reasoned
3. Inflammatory/agreeable
4. Bullshit/inarguable

Some 'voting is consenting to capitalism' posts popping up on my feed. I understand, but not right now.

Help people not die first, wank about theory later.

It's about that time of year when people start wondering things like "hey, why isn't DECEMber the tenth month of the year?"

So it's time for my little lecture on Romans, calendars, and our friend Gaius Julius Caesar.

I'll be posting it as a tootchain replying to this one, but if you're impatient, here's the whole thing: gist.github.com/joyeusenoelle/

So: “Why isn’t the new year on winter solstice?”

The answer, honestly, is that the Romans had no fucking idea how to run a calendar.

There was recently a lot of news about DNS over HTTPS. Some people say it's bad for privacy because it centralizes the DNS requests on Google, Cloudflare and Quad9.

Time to change that and run your own DNS over HTTPS server. I spend some time today in writing, documenting and arranging a small container setup to allow you to do this:
