🇳🇱​ toestanden in democratisch - Belastingdienst geniet strafrechtelijke immuniteit!

Er is iets structureel fout met de rechtsstaat als overheidsinstellingen en diens ambtenaren feitelijk onschendbaar zijn.
Onacceptabel, zeker gezien de catastrofale schade die is aangericht!

This is Alan. Alan ended his own life on 7th June 1954. He laced an apple with cyanide and ate a bite from it. He did this because the British government chemically castrated, humiliated and prosecuted him for being gay.

Alan is the reason why a chunk is bitten out of the Apple logo…in honour of Alan Turing.

Ok so what did he do? He invented computer science and using his first designs he decrypted the Enigma code - the machine base encryption that the Nazis and the German military used to communicate secret commands to each other in world war 2 - and hence he both saved millions of lives and brought us into the modern age of computing.

Pride month isn’t just about dancing on floats in gold hot pants or flying a rainbow flag. It’s about remembering that everyone has a right to be happy, love who they want to love, and recognise the outstanding contribution that everyone can make in a society free of fear or prejudice.

Remembering Alan……

MEMO to all developers

Locking format customization to locales was a BAD mistake, has existed for years in many applications and OS's, and needs to be fixed.

The idea assumes that no person from the US uses metric. That NL wants to be tied to "DD/MM/YYYY', and to using a comma for decimal separator, that everyone in Sweden can speak Swedish.

Formats must be customizable.

Please boost.

Got a reply from after I complained about their lack of support.
Bad news: they're not into Linux yet....
Good news: they kindly pointed me to the DDC communication protocol and utilities which I had never heard of and that works a charm!
Adapted my bash scripts and can now properly adjust display brightness & contrast with keyboard shortcuts!

Don't you think it's an ironic and bad case in point that your european-alternatives.eu/ website uses Amazon Web Services?

Dubious behavior shows total disrespect for users' privacy and need for regulation and enforcement.

Thanks to the team for their awesome work!

sat24.com (weather info) fell off the DNS face of the earth this afternoon. Only Google DNS (8.8.8.8) returns an address
Preferred providers like Cloudflare, Quad9 and freedns all return a blank answer section in DNS query.
