#Pine64 has some pre #FOSDEM announcements.

Biggest one is the #PinebookPro.

14" 1080p display
**usb-c**, with power input and video output
#Rockchip #RK3399

and the usual laptop features. target price, US$199! I look forward to getting #OpenBSD running well on this #arm64 system.


Whenever a web browser, operating system, or web site gains dominance among users, it stops being cool and starts becomes blatantly abusive.

This Chromium nonsense is just more of what we saw from Internet Explorer.

Every generation of geeks learns this anew, and acts all shocked. Learn some history, folks. Learn from those who came before.

Stop supporting only one platform. Variety is ESSENTIAL. Monocultures are death. #sysadmin

Dear #fediverse. I work as an #architect and design buildings that harm the planet. I am looking for a practicing #engineer who can teach me building energy modelling using #opensource tools. I have a background in software dev, run #gentoo #linux and am willing to learn down to the details.

I do not have a background in heat transfer or thermodynamics, which is why I am asking for a tutor.

I promise to use this to design better buildings.

Please help retoot this so I can find someone.

Go on, you know you want to waste your afternoon… :flan_smile:

Here's a Xerox Star emulator!


The Xerox Star (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xerox_St) was the commercial evolution of the Alto with a proper GUI, a mouse, Lisp :flan_wink:, SmallTalk :flan_wink, and was a commercial disaster or close enough :flan_sad:

Was sind für euch die wichtigsten, interessantesten und eindrucksvollsten Sounds, Songs, etc. der letzten 35 Jahre #CCC ? Ich plane da etwas...
Gerne RT/Boost

Don't forget about the other free and open operating systems these days. A ❤️ for #BSD! #FreeBSD #OpenBSD #NetBSD #DragonflyBSD #HardenedBSD #NoMonoculture

Mitcaster gesucht!

Ich hab da 'ne Idee für ein #Podcast-Format und suche Mitstreiter. Interesse an Soziologie, Wissenschaftsgeschichte bzw. -theorie oder Philosophie? Lust am Mikro über halbwegs aktuelle Sachbücher aus den Bereichen zu quatschen?
Auch ohne Erfahrung. Gerne DM.

If you have or will soon have an #ElectricCar, be very wary of buying a "WallBox" charger. I have experiencing a very frustrating set-up which, it turns out, requires me to have a Google Account, sign a new privacy policy, have a _recent_ android phone, install a proprietary app, and sign up to a subscription service (first year free! :D :D :D)... just to activate a core feature I already paid extra to have.
This is #IoT. Garbage you can't own, which makes you a serf, and costs more.

This sounds like it might be up your alley, @neauoire: "The Lisp Badge is a self-contained computer with its own display and keyboard, based on an ATmega1284, that you can program in the high-level language Lisp."


Re: replacing ecl_min with EuLisp level 0 implementation.

I'm curious : Why EuLisp level 0?
Why not ISLISP (standard, Lisp-2) or R7RS Scheme (more implementations)?

I'm just curious..., please explain.

Many thanks in advance.

Hey #Lisp #CommonLisp people - I'd like to give a shoutout to @jackdaniel who is one of the maintainers of Embeddable Common Lisp and McCLIM and a very active Lisp hacker (see turtleware.eu/posts/My-everlas for details).

He just opened up a Patreon at patreon.com/user/posts?u=44419 - if you'd like to support the amazing Lisp work he does, throw a few bucks his way!

Uhhhh! Eine Alternative zu #Amazon bei der Profite automatisch an die @fsfe@twitter.com fließen 😍😍😍

Wir suchen eine Wohnung (ab Februar oder März) in Stuttgart. Max. 1000 kalt, min. 50m², mit EBK, Uni und Stadtmitte sollten mit ÖPNV gut erreichbar sein. Bin für Hinweise/Boosts/... dankbar.
