Couple of things I forgot:
- Allows you to select between glibc and musl c standard lib implementations
- I haven't tried, but it's supposed to work on ARM and other embedded devices
Hey Linux users, give some love to @VoidLinux . An amazing distribution built from scratch.
- Unique xbps package manager.
- LibreSSL instead of OpenSSL.
- Runit instead of Systemd.
- Rolling Release, but unlike Arch, each new package or update requires a successful compilation via Travis on GitHub.
And feel free to ask anything if you are curious ❤️
Hi all we did NOT migrate the servers yesterday but instead just begun that now. It shouldn't effect anything until I redirect the DNS in a few hours. At that point there may be momentary downtime. I will keep everyone informed ont he schedule.
Does anybody have any idea about how many users this social media platform has? I'm enlisted with QOTO.org but I keep seeing folks with other domain names on this too. Still trying to figure this platform out.
A Python question regarding large file transfers over HTTP Show more
I'm working on a project that involves retrieving large (~2-8 GB) .zip files through HTTP and storing them for later processing. I've written a script that uses an API to lookup and generate URLs for a series of needed files, and then attempts to stream each file to storage using requests.get().iter_content.
The problem is, my connection isn't perfectly stable (and I'm running this on a laptop which sometimes goes to sleep). When the connection is interrupted, the transfer dies and I need to restart it.
What would be the best way to add a resume capacity to my file transfer? So that if the script stalls or the connection drops, it would be possible to resume the download from where it failed?
Is anyone of you still using the #usenet and if so how do you access it? Provider? Google groups?
Just adding a small note, I love #linux <3
I haven't done my #introduction so far so let's fix that.
You can call me Criw, I'm a second year software engineering student. I'm way more interested in low-level programming such as writing drivers than in webapps & similar stuff. I'm just starting to learn about that tho. And I like to contribute to opensource projects to learn and practice, in case you want contributors for something <3
Besides programming, I like to spend my time finding new music, and I'm recently learning to cook, so if you have any easy recipe you wanna share do it ;)
And IDK what else to tell ya'll, so if you have any question go on <3
I seem to live in a small city under a rock, but the past month I went in vacations and found a really cool concept I hadn't thought about: it was a cafebrary, which is a mix between a cafe and a library, where you could drink something while reading or buying books, really cool 😍😍😍. I wonder what interesting concepts are out there and I haven't found yet
Loki~'s tips for being motivated at home: (2/2) Show more
- Have a list of things you should do when you wake up. Namely things like brushing your teeth & any other daily grooming tasks you may do.
- Write down what you need to do that day. I've just started bullet journaling and thus far it's fantastic for keeping me on-track.
- Keep a clean workspace. When my desk, my room, or both are a mess, I am a mess.
- Set yourself goals & when you want to finish them by. Small deadlines help you to separate work from play.
Loki~'s tips for being motivated at home: (1/2) Show more
These are things I find help me to actually motivate myself whilst at home.
- Shower/Bathe/Wash regularly. Being clean helps a lot.
- Get dressed when you wake up. I know it's comfortable being in Pyjamas, but being dressed helps to get into a better mindset for doing things.
- HYDRATE. Water is really important.
- Eat breakfast. Even if it's just something small for breakfast like a banana, it helps give you that energy boost to start the day.
The birth of #Linux
27 years ago.
On August 25 1991 Linus Torvalds wrote to comp.os.minix:
"I'm doing a (free) operating system (just a hobby, won't be big and
professional like gnu) for 386(486) AT clones."
"won't be big" he said. 😃
Happy birthday, Linux, and congratulations to Mr. Torvalds.

I really really want a lemonade.
