Looks like fedichive.tk lost his domain because he violated the FreeNOM AUP.

Looks like FreeNOM has already released it to anyone else who wants to register it for the low, low price of $0.

Oops, looks like between the time I wrote the above paragraph and this one someone else registered it.

Exzellenter Artikel. Sehr persönlich und gleichzeitig faktenreich.
Mir war nicht klar: Die #Kipppunkte werden in den Berichten des #Weltklimarat nicht berücksichtigt!!! Das heißt unser #CO2-Budget ist real viel kleiner!!

Zitat: „und wenn ich auf die großen News-Seiten gucke, beschleicht mich langsam ein Gefühl, als rasten wir mit dem Auto sehenden Auges auf eine Klippe zu, doch statt über Rettungsmaßnahmen, diskutieren alle Insassen nur über die Musik im Radio.“

Heute zum ersten Mal XMPP ausprobiert. Ich hatte bisher nur die zentral verwalteten Chatsysteme ausprobiert (Signal, Wire, ...) aber nicht die dezentralen... 😅

The best description I've seen of what it feels like to make art 

So if it's artists being referred to as pretentious, then... yeah. Artists do regularly attempt to impress by affecting greater importance, talent and culture than is actually possessed.

In fact, it's the leap you pretty much have to take to create anything. It's your foolish hope that you might go from not knowing how to do something to doing something, and then eventually doing it well enough that you might want to share it with other people.

The creative process as I've witnessed it is generally plagued by frustration, insecurity, and doubt, alternated by brief moments of pleasure in having made something you think is halfway decent, followed by having to summon ludicrous amounts of confidence in order to have to share that thing with other people, and concluding with night sweats as you wonder immediately after -- and then forever after -- whether you are a fraud and your work is terrible no matter how many people say they like it.

Hearing this is so validating I don't even know how to express it.
