NeoChat is a free open source @matrix messaging app for Linux desktop and mobile. You can follow at:
* Mike Richards was a bad selection for host even before The Ringer story.
* Everyone should buy Claire McNear's Jeopardy! book, it's fantastic and she's a great journalist.
* Disappointed over how toxic various J! online communities have gotten over this.
Above all else, the stars of the show are CONTESTANTS, not the host. Everyone should be talking about Matt Amodio and how he credited Wikipedia for helping him study to become the third-highest earner (so far)!!
uh, #airsonic is abandoned/obsolete now :(
time to look into moving to airsonic-advanced, which I hope will be a mostly drop-in replacement
Forking is good, actually. It allows groups of people with distinct needs to self-determine their own destiny. We should encourage forks of free software and support easier customization and alterations of projects, without imposing central control.
I literally spent hours writing the app description of Kiwix for FreedomBox.
Yes, I also went through the entire list of Kiwix content archives. 🙈
CC is working on the issue of overaggressive license enforcement as a business model--aka "copyright trolling"--and one part of this is setting principles for reasonable license enforcement.
Here's our blog post with links to a draft for public comment!
Took a little over 5 hours to build the LEGO Discovery Space Shuttle set plus Hubble Telescope, with help from family members. Largest set (by piece count) that we've ever done before, was a blast.
Timelapse was captured using gphoto2 and stitched with Kdenlive. Lighting is wack sorry, I probably shouldn't have left the camera on auto.
Almost a year ago, we created a list of applications that can be added to FreedomBox in the short-term.
Calibre-server and Zoph have already been added and will be included in the next stable release (Debian 11 Bullseye).
We're currently integrating an email server, WordPress and Kiwix. These apps will be released via the bullseye-backports channel, some time after Debian Bullseye is released on 14th August.
New blog post about last month's #Wikimedia Datatcenter switchover: https://techblog.wikimedia.org/2021/07/23/june-2021-data-center-switchover/
"In June 2021, the Wikimedia Foundation’s Site Reliability Engineering team switched most user traffic from our primary datacenter in Virginia (“eqiad”) to our secondary one in Texas (“codfw”). This is an exercise we’ve done multiple times over the past 5 years, and this was the smoothest and fastest one yet."
