A pre-print that I posted previously has been published in The Journal of Clinical and Translational Research: Evidence for a connection between coronavirus disease-19 and exposure to radiofrequency radiation from wireless communications including 5G by Rubik and Brown.
RF radiation has been proven harmful for humans and the environment. The deployment of 5G constitutes an experiment on humanity and the environment that is defined as a crime under international law.
A fellow named Luke Smith wrote a lovely article titled Why I Use the GPL and not Cuck Licenses. He seems to have rather similar scope to myself. Lots of faith-based content, lots of tech. Several good writings.
Nicholas Fraser explains why Flatpak is not the future. Flatpak is an instance of the unfortunate trend in free software towards containerization and all the redundancy and bloat associated with it. Basically, it supposes you install the same packages multiple times from different sources depending on specific requirements of a given package.

My player "rum" got renamed to "rumu", because "rum" was already taken at rubygems.org. Additionally, it now has native PulseAudio support, which has been partitioned off into a library: pulseaudio_simple_ffi. Both are pushed to rubygems.org, which means you can install rumu by running
gem install rumu on a proper install of Ruby.
Published a highly-minimalist music player, written in about 100 lines of Ruby. I named it "rum".
I will be filing a credit card chargeback with a certain "local" (I guess management has moved to the coast) computer shop selling "refurbished" computers that aren't even updated with current anti-Spectre, etc. firmwares. Management insists more current firmware is not stable. The manufacturer insists otherwise, but my experience is that management might not be far off there. While I recommended the shop for years, I will no longer due to a bad experience. The shop should be avoided because while their machines are cheap, it appears that they cannot be modernized, and cannot be saved from the many hardware vulnerabilities that have popped up in the last few years. Plus, the shop is no longer local, management has migrated. Finally, their staff is horrible and repeatedly lied to my face. They could have saved hours of time if they'd listened to what I'd told them, but at this point, I'm quite content to cost them time. My current recommended computer shop in Prince George would be DDR2. Cantin Brothers also offers some support.
