GitHub Support just straight up confirmed in an email that yes, they used all public GitHub code, for Codex/Copilot regardless of license.

A "podcast" behind a paywall is not a podcast.

A "podcast" that only one app can receive is not a podcast.

A "podcast" without a public feed that can be freely pulled into any podcast client or RSS reader is not a damn podcast, don't let people get away with calling it that.

Seems I'm no longer following a lot of the people I used to follow.
I have no idea if they got lost when moving to hackers.town or later.
Oh well, a timeline cleanse was probably needed anyway.

I wonder if SoMe in general would be a better place if more people understood that politics isn't a zero-sum game?
It is perfectly possible for both sides in a debate to be wrong!

Fediverse Etiquette 

Posting a link to a toot, as well as its text for profile pinnage.

When you write hashtags, remember to use CamelCase (where each word has a capital letter).

This makes it much easier for blind and partially-sighted people's screen reader apps to read the hashtag out loud, and makes your message much more accessible.

For example is easier for a screen reader to say out loud than , as CamelCase makes it obvious where the words are.

In other words: GitHub, stop laundering copyright. If you trained Copilot on GPL code, you are obliged to release that derived product as GPL. If you trained it on MPL code, you are in violation of that license.

2483. Linked List Interview Problem 

title text: I'd traverse it myself, but it's singly linked, so I'm worried that I won't be able to find my way back to 2021.

The bone wizard carved truths into living bone, truths to be revealed when the flesh was gone.
They never questioned the words - were they not true they could not be carved. They'd seen loves and hates, sorrows and sins.
But never this.
"Run?"
The only answer they got was a grin.

Please, if you have a bot, make it post in unlisted rather than in public. There is so many bots posting in public now that the federated timeline is becoming unusable.
I don’t usually ask that, but can you boost this to spread awareness?

With a definite risk of being an ass: I don't care if your game is written in my favourite language - unless I get to see the source...

Time for another biased poll.

Do you know what CC and BCC stand for in eMail without having to look it up?

I would appreciate it if you boosted this toot. :-)

"Installation: we recommend that you use Docker."

what I'm supposed to see: "hey, it's a simple one-liner! Such clean install, much wow."

what I actually see: "we couldn't figure out how to install this thing on anything but our own machine, but hey, here is a well-compressed image of our entire disk, use this instead so that we can stop trying"

I just finished "Zoey Punches the Future in the Dick" by David Wong.

I almost gave up half way through. When I just didn't care about any of the characters.
But then the pace picked up again. And the story ended up being surprisingly touching.

I think the Zoey Ashe series it a fun playfull twist on classic .

So that was the 3rd book out of my 16 books this year reading challenge. I love ...
