Back when the GNU project was starting, among the first things they rewrote as Free Software were:
- text editor / IDE (Emacs)
- assembler, linker, and compiler
- make

IOW, they made tools that they needed to further develop Free Software without relying on proprietary tools.

They wanted their project to be self-hosting.

Nowadays, we have more free software than ever, but we develop it using github and Discord...

В Екатеринбурге сотни противников строительства храма прорвались через забор стройки.

Около 100 бойцов академии единоборств «Русской медной компании» грубо выталкивают людей из сквера.

Полиция им не препятствует. Бойцы восстанавливают забор, окружавший начавшуюся стройку, который ранее сломали жители города во время акции.

@applebaps not to say I'm some kind of anti anti anti, I just need a space where you can say no thanks or not feel obligated to please certain individuals because of their fragile personalities.

Hence why a lot of people like me end up in the no man's land because I'm not a omg free speech but I won't stand for toxicity and manipulative language.

The core flaw of socialism, communism, and capitalism is the same: they all rely on the premise that humans are inherently moral by nature.

They aren't.
@xrevan86 Back in the olden days we could just ... disagree about something, without having to erase the other person from existence on your server or whatever (crazy, I know!)

In our latest Community Member Monday, we talk to Vera Blagoveschenskaya, who helps out in the LibreOffice Quality Assurance (QA) project:

> you can just disable secure boot until you enroll the keys of your OS supplier anyway.
@kaniini On many new devices it is not allowed to disable Secure Boot.
That is the big problem with it – it is enforced.

The part that nobody seems to quite get around saying out loud is that if we stop emitting CO2 tomorrow, millions of people will immediately die, and the ones who don't die will be tossed back into the Stone Age.

I kind of wish someone would at least admit that that is what the end game of solving climate change involves?

I mean if you're going to complain that we have a lot of factories and cars, you kind of need to show your work as to how we are going to live without factories and cars.

@natecull I don't think many people are arguing for a universal, immediate cessation of all CO2 production!

Rather, the argument is: "Ultimately there will be technological solutions - factories and cars don't have to always be polluting - so in the meantime, we want enough of a reduction in pollution for us to survive long enough to develop technological solutions. Since much of our pollution doesn't actually benefit anybody, this should be possible without ill-effect."

It's really surprising to me that there are still no non-profit alternatives to Uber and Lyft.

I would love to see somebody start a non-profit org and make an open source app for ride sharing.

YOU: so the A in RAID stands for "Array"?
US: Yes.
YOU: doesn't that mean saying "RAID array" is redundant?
US: Of course. That's what the R is for.

That'd be a nice little project, tbh. There's so many things in Linux that are only accessible from the command line, so integrating this timed functionality into the GUI would be great.

Maybe make it so that holding SHIFT when clicking the Shutdown/Reboot button opens a dialog that allows a time to be selected.

When the time is confirmed, then a notification icon is added, letting the user to cancel the scheduled shutdown/reboot.

Lastly, it does a reminder notification a few minutes before.
