"Vanaf vandaag moeten overheidssites zich aantoonbaar inspannen om toegankelijk te zijn voor mensen met een beperking, zoals blinden en slechtzienden. Overheden lappen die regels echter op grote schaal aan hun laars, blijkt uit onderzoek van twee experts op het gebied van digitale toegankelijkheid.

**Het buffet van Baudet op de ambassade van Trump**

"De Groene doet verslag van een campagneavond van Forum van Democratie op de Amerikaanse ambassade in Den Haag. Die gebeurtenis is om allerlei redenen schandalig en verontrustend. Al zullen de relativisten, die vinden dat je je niet te veel mag opwinden over de opkomst van extreemrechts en dat je ze om te beginnen …"

Julian Assange's extradition hearings are frankly terrifying, and if you care about the free press, you should be worried, irrespective of whether you like Assange or Wikileaks. As the old saying goes, "Hard cases make bad law."

The Trump DoJ indictment goes somewhere that no other president has dared to go: criminally charging a publisher for their role in the publication of classified docs, something that press outlets do regularly.

The public indifference to Assange's absolutely ghastly treatment has emboldened those in the UK and the US who want to use this opportunity to seize as much power to punish the press as possible.

Don't take my word for it. Read what Stefan Simanowitz, Amnesty International's media manager for Europe, Turkey and the Balkans, has to say about the trial.

Democracy dies in darkness, right? If you think that the press-freedom precedents Trump is setting now will only be used against people you're angry at, you're engaged in wishful thinking.

The Trump administration is fashioning an immortal, pluripotent superweapon that ANY future administration (including a second-term Trump administration, shudder) can use against the press.

I am quite happy with the window pop-up functionality in Tmux.
I played some time with it on my OpenBSD laptop and can surely use this.
Unfortunately, the Tmux version in FreeBSD and in Debian is too old (even with Debian backports).
In the end I installed Tmux from source in my $daytime-work Debian laptop. With a Tmux keybinding I can now quickly get a pop-up window with Taskwarrior, and with another keybinding with Vimwiki Diary opened for $today :)

"Another retired programmer I spoke to named Pam Foltz noted that good COBOL was great long-term infrastructure, because it was so transparent. Almost anyone with a decent grasp of programming could come into a COBOL system built by someone else decades earlier and understand how the code worked." logicmag.io/care/built-to-last

One good clue that your government has turned fascist is when the "enemy" is malleable and interchanable, as with Eastasia and Eurasia in 1984.

We heard no more about Islam/ISIS etc. after Trump's sword dance and magic Orb experience in Saudi.

Now the enemy is alleged anti-fascists trying to form a "resistance" to fascism inside the US.

Only the tyrannical measures to fight the faceless foe remain.
