holy shit this article
It seems that the interesting #gcstar was abandoned in 2016, but one passionate user and developer copied the svn source, transformed to git and he is maintaining the software to this day. The old site works, he answers people on the forums and the software is in gitlab.
Another interesting fact about #gcstar: although I’m using it for books only, if you read the Wikipedia article you’ll see that gcstar can handle a lot of other collections, like board games, comics, numismatic and you can even define your own collection. I’m not the kind that loves to catalog everything, but I’m delighted with the possibilities
The features that I’m using in #gcstar are the search in amazon that autocompleted a book, and I’m using tags to designate the boxe that a specific book is in, and that’s it.
Just found another great piece of #foss yesterday. I had to catalog a lot of #books. Usually, I would make a simple list using emacs, maybe code some automation myself and we’re good to go. But I’m lacking time, so I did a quick research for applications that manage books. I found the very interesting #gcstar, that you can read more here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GCstar?wprov=sfti1 and get the source here https://gitlab.com/Kerenoc/GCstar

Hi everyone, putting my cap out and asking for any support you can offer.
Last year I had a breakdown and although I've tried very hard to return to work since then I've not been able to for any length of time.
I'm now working on myself, and trying to build something that I can say I have accomplished for myself and at the same time do my best to help others.
If you're able to, support me financially at:

Thinkpad Yoga 12
12.5" IPS 1080p diplay
.74 in thick vs the .6 of the flip
8GB RAM (overkill for me)
HDD/SDD varies but I don't care. I have spare ssds I can put in

Trackpoint is a plus!

Our secret weapon is functions. Everything can be reduced to functions. Functions and types. Functions, types and environments. And macros. And continuations. And abstract types...
Objects! Objects and classes. Objects, classes and a metaobject protocol. Or prototypes. Objects, prototypes, methods, messages...
Files! Files and folders. Files, folders and processes. And threads. And semaphores. A

Hello my friends. I’m stuck with a though for days now. Anyone here uses a Sony Vaio P series with our awesome gnu+Linux? It’s a poor hardware (Atom) but I find it a beautiful machine and a interesting form factor. Could be an updated hardware in other company, of course. Maybe @kelbot knows anything?
