Struggling with with . I dont know how to give up though so Im just pushing through this shit right now.

Question: Be it "bushcraft", camping, fixing things or teaching, I enjoy tools that can do more than one thing. I dislike tools that have just one purpose.

Recent example: I refused having two bikes so I got a bike that can do everything but excels in none of those things. Im in love with this beast for that reason.

Biggest appeal in python, for me, is just this. It seems like it can do everything. Then I read how every programmer uses multitude of languages for different things.

Im not going to be a professional any time soon (just learning new things) but do I really need to get over this attitude of one tool to rule them all?

This is my message to the western world – your civilisation is killing life on Earth
Nemonte Nenquimo -->

When you say that you are urgently looking for climate solutions, yet continue to build a world economy based on extraction and pollution, we know you are lying because we are the closest to the land, and the first to hear her cries.

The #Epic @fedilab @k9mail cases have reinforced our strong stance that we must control the distribution channels of #FLOSS and no longer depend on the #PlayStore

A major threat to the adoption of an alternative is that users expect updates to be automatic but #Google made that possible only for the #PlayStore

Code Lutin will invest on @fdroidorg to make software update possible on non-rooted #Android devices thus, allowing people to adopt #FreeSoftware

#MécénatCodeLutin #DeleteGoogle

of all shades and colours of !

1) What is your opinnion on ?

2) Are they a tool? Tool for what?

3) If not, then why? What are your views on money or on mediums of exchange all together?

Im struggling to understand why some people are so in to cryptocurrencies. Who are these people? Are cryptocurrencies good for anything?

(People who arent leaning to are welcome to enlighten me/us, of course.)

Does anyone on the Fediverse knows of a good audio editor?

I want to release Libre Lounge out but I'm stuck in a mental rut editing the audio. But if I could pay for someone to do it, it would be done faster and we'd have more episodes.

If you're an audio editor or know of one that would be willing to edit a 45-1 hour long podcast, let me know.

Boosts appreciated!

I have no idea how they came up with these stats but.. Made me angry again. GIven how we just read how some people are boarding planes and flying circles for the fun of it, Im not too proud of my fellow peoples.

(When can we start eating the rich? Would that help? No?)

So my window to the craziness that is is slates . I just listened this episode

Did not know about this book that says how 1billion would be a good thing (for US americans I guess). I havent read it but Im gonna about the interview(?) anyway.

? Resources? just states how more people would innovate and more people would make it easier to solve climate crisis.

Someone needs to remind him that more people means more metal, oil and gases out of the earth. More cement, more wood, more everything. Id love to see the necessary leaps we, as a species, should be able to take to sustain 1billion US Americans.

How is this a printable idea? Or is it just US Americans feeling inferior to fascist China and need ideas how to get their self-perceived exceptionalism back?

Anyone here used to get their python creation to work on ?

How did it go?

My quest to try and sort of learn and continues!

I just found out about -->

I happened to find through someone on here in fediverse. So thank you again, dear fediverse!

Dear and users,

I find my self on a situation where I finally got a excuse to try and learn to use emacs and (maths and writing). I'm having trouble though (surprise!) with configuring auctex. Especially getting PDF preview and saving PDFs to work. Trying to figure these out I've made a complete and utter mess of my init. There's so many different ways to do this, I suppose, and I'm a bit lost.

Could one you wizards post your init that you use for auctex and so I might try and use it and maybe learn something. Some explanation is appreciated but not expected.

(Btw I managed to get Emacs working as an adequate python ide. Yay! I'm still working on my miserable programming skills as a hobby.)

Dear Fediverse,

Would someone know a solution to this dilemma?

Say you'd want to folder full of files with your friends with bittorrent. Cool. Thats easy. What if you wanted to be able to alter (add or remove) the contents of that folder so that these changes manifest in other users end as well?

My searx-foo resulted in bunch of "no can do, mister!" but Im guessing someone here might have some suggestions.


The official app in is GSF dependent.

Should we maybe take wee pause here and have a national, or global even, comversationabout the absurd situation we are in?

Right now, to get your hands on official, government funded, pamdemia app, you _must_ be or customer.

Is this fine?
Why not?

Hearing/reading about is at the same time saddening and uplifting. Saddening because I thought I had come up with my very first original thought and uplifting because actually awesome people are already working on this thought/problem.

Ive been devouring info on networks like and to figure out how I could solve a problem I have and now it seems datashards might be the answer. Cant wait to see where this goes. I have an idea what to build on top of it.

Family of four (2 adults, two kids) of which one adult and one kid has "corona-like" symptoms. They call to health center and asks if all should come to be tested.

health center worker: "no, no. You two can come because you have symptoms. We have next free time on friday. Come then."

Sick adult: "That long huh? We are practically quarantined untill then so whos going to do the shopping for us?"

Health center worker: "Per the guideline adult2 can do them cause he doesnt have any matching symptoms."

might be in trouble when the second wave of really hits us. This doesnt sound like a good way to handle this.

Testing .

I'll report back when I, hopefully, have some idea what this thing is.

Anyone else here use it? What's your experience? What do you use it for?

Got the OpenCL working. Too bad I had to install Lubuntu and then amdgpu-pro drivers. Not good.

I scoured the interwebs for answers and all those guides with --headless --no-dkms does not work. Full on ./amdgpu-pro-install (or what ever it was) worked.

Well at least blender finds my card now but can we please make this easier AMD?


I shouldve checked how massive PIA it is to to work on .

Got two laptops to give away. Found new homes for them and installed with .

Those humble old things will hopefully make few lives a bit better next week.

(BTW ditched because of constant annoying little problems. These machines need to be rock solid.)
