It's this a new thing? I really dislike KDE bloat, but this might be interesting to try.

KDE Connect has reached an important milestone and it now let's you use your phone as a touchpad for any KDE desktop. Brilliant!

Here Comes The Sun: the lost solo guitar
In this video we see Sir George Martin, Giles Martin (his son), and Dhani Harrison listening to the mix of "Here Comes The Sun."
Suddenly Dhani opens the channel with the "lost solo guitar". And now, with the master track in the background, you can hear how it sounds in music.
That was George Harrison. A true genius.

More bees, less corporate whores (apologies to whores for comparing you to those pricks ... apologies to pricks too.)
Millions of bees die because of Neonicotinoid pesticides manufactured by Bayer & Syngenta and 94% of GMO corn in US is treated with either imidacloprid or clothianidin pesticides -

Humans are meant to exist naturally not as products of Hollywood trickery  and a meaningless commodities trading system. We are not numbers that buy and consume so we can be pawns. We are more than that. And we deserve abundance of life and diversity. Let the critters fight back. Respect nature for it always wins and it doesn't speak the same language so the rules are meaningless.

Who says secret companies are bad? We do!

We're calling on the #G20 to make it impossible for the corrupt to hide their wealth behind secret companies. Help us unmask the corrupt and SHARE!

Awesome sauce! Take that Harper and your privacy invading cabal of corporate control freaks.
Canada's Supreme Court Delivers Huge Victory for Internet Privacy & Blows Away Gov't Plans for Reform

"Third, not only is there a significant privacy interest, but there is also a reasonable expectation of privacy by the user. The court examines both PIPEDA and the Shaw terms of use (the ISP in this case) and concludes that PIPEDA must surely be understood within the context of protecting privacy (not opening the door to greater disclosures) and that the ISP agreement was confusing at best and may support the expectation of privacy.

With those findings in mind: in the totality of the circumstances of this case, there is a reasonable expectation of privacy in the subscriber information. The disclosure of this information will often amount to the identification of a user with intimate or sensitive activities being carried out online, usually on the understanding that these activities would be anonymous. A request by a police officer that an ISP voluntarily disclose such information amounts to a search."

Good luck down there as well ... Not sure if a law like the one that this decision attacks could ever happen in the USA (but even if it couldn't I'm sure the NSA would simply do it anyway)

Great deal for any Linux Pro-Audio enthusiasts out there.
There's a special offer to get a pack of Linux audio plug-ins at a bargain price this week. There are lots of free plug-ins, but I'd like to try these for my next project, whenever that is.

#WorldTradeDeals   #WikiLeaks  
On Thursday, WikiLeaks released the secret draft text for a trade deal called the Trade in Services Agreement. The deal covers 50 countries and over 68 percent of world trade in services. Until now, the draft has been classified to keep it secret, not only during the negotiations, but also for five years post-enactment. According to the leaked text, the trade deal aims to cement the deregulatory model of the 1990s by forbidding countries from improving financial regulation

Big storm yesterday in Toronto (well, actually a normal summer storm) and as usual Toronto Hydro was unprepared (in my area, around Pape Village above the Danforth, the power goes off at least once a month. Has been doing this for the eight or so years I've been living here, and it's getting really really tired.)

No updates of any worth on their web site (power out for 7 hours in my area and their outage map never reflected that fact during the whole episode,) Twitter account was basically just saying "we'll get back to you", but the stupidest Toronto Hydro system of all was their phone-in outage reporting system.

I called in to report the power outage since their website seemed to indicate we were not affected, but you get one of those automated voice recognition systems. It asks you to speak the responses, which one of them are "what is your postal code"?

Well, my postal code is in the "M4J" area, but when ever I said that postal code it responded back with "did you say "N4J"  ... no matter what I did, speaking slowly, speaking quickly, trying "N" instead of "M", it would not accept me saying the letter "M".

Now, I'm something like 13th generation Canadian, so if I have an accent it's a Canadian accent, and I've never had an issue with any of these kinds of systems before. I can dictate to my Android phone pretty accurately, and use 'Drag 'n Dictate' at work quite often to document test cases, so I seriously doubt it was the way I was speaking.

Now, some of the most forgiving of you may be thinking, "okay, so a few people in Toronto living in a postal code that has the letter "M" in it are going to have an issue reporting outages, not good, but certainly not the end of the world?" --- wrong, in Toronto ever single postal code starts with the fucking letter "M".

Toronto Hydro, and it's stupid fucking CEO Haines, you fucking suck!!!
