“Austrian DSB: EU-US data transfers to Google Analytics illegal”

“In a groundbreaking decision, the Austrian Data Protection Authority (…) has decided on a model case by noyb that the continuous use of Google Analytics violates the GDPR.”

Though… an EU-hosted alternative would be a comparable threat to privacy, just on EU soil.

Feminist-washing : qu’il est bon d’être exploité·e par une femme

Une loi visant à «  accélérer l’égalité économique et professionnelle  » entre les femmes et les hommes a été adoptée par l’Assemblée nationale le 13 décembre dernier. Portée par la droite, elle risque bien de dissoudre le patriarcat  ! Elle propose en effet d’instaurer des quotas de femmes parmi les dirigeants des entreprises :

« Sans les avoir rencontrés, j'ai une communauté d'amis de 25 ans à travers le monde […]. Si nous le voulons, nos communautés du libre peuvent être fraternelles et bienveillantes. »

« Maintenant il va falloir le dire » (Lordon, nov. 2021)

« L’idée, c’est le capitalocène — et non l’anthropocène —, c’est que l’écocide est capitaliste, qu’il n’y aura pas de solution capitaliste à l’écocide capitaliste, par conséquent que la seule réaction de défense à monter doit être dirigée contre le capitalisme. »

“Tuning packages for a CPU micro-architecture”

Or how Guix’s new ‘--tune’ option allows users to get SIMD optimizations without giving up on .

@civodul This has been fixed in the latest version of youtube-dl: It doesn't invalidate what you said, but I'm posting it here for reference, since a lot of people have been frustrated by this issue without knowing it has improved.

@civodul TL;DR: use yt-dlp.

youtube-dl has been abandonned for nearly 8 months by its sole maintainer before a unexpected come back a few weeks ago. In the meantime, most of the community writing the plugins moved to the yt-dlp community fork.

The situation now is kinda weird with two active projects serving the same purpose. Mpv and a lot of downstream software decided to use yt-dlp as their primary fetchers.

The situation is a bit concerning: the two projects do not share the same set of website-specific plugins. Let's hope we won't end up in the unfortunate position where we'll need a meta project to select the most appropriate fetcher for a given website ><
