So I'm still experimenting issues with an external HDD on Linux and was hoping someone could help me out. Basically, I have a toshiba external HDD that in both NTFS or ext4 copies very slowly like 5mb/s, but if I use it in a Windows OS it copies normally (average 100mb/s). I've tried several ways of formatting in gparted and can't find a decent solution. When I start transferring files to my ext hdd basically it starts at 100mb/s but slowly decreases until it reaches like 5mb/s.

Who even needs the binomial theorem?
(20+25)²=2025
(30+25)²=3025
(68320+14336)²=6832014336
(60494+17284)²=6049417284
and so on.

Well, at least I know that versioning works well! For some reason, the vast majority of my data had been deleted from my drives (not idea how or why).

I _think_ it may have been a Duplicity backup gone rogue, but I'm really not sure - I hope Syncthing isn't randomly deleting my data!

Word of advice to FreeCAD users on Ubuntu who also have the freecad-community PPA in their software sources: do *not* update the python-pivy package! It will *break* your FreeCAD installs, even ones you compiled yourself.

0.18's Part workbench gets new "Explode compound" and "Slice apart" commands.

We know, we're supposed to be in feature freeze, but we couldn't stop ourselves! Thanks to DeepSOIC for these additions!

Still experimenting with the . elCAT-0's sibling is done in Fusion360. Due to better handling of splines and projections (into the sketch) it is much faster:

Hiya! Its serena! I forget the name of my previous account but I kinda deleted it like a week ago when I was extremely depressed. Long story short im feelin better now. Wondering if it'd be ok to ask for boosts on this so people I lost contact with can find me?

Dear #fediverse. I work as an #architect and design buildings that harm the planet. I am looking for a practicing #engineer who can teach me building energy modelling using #opensource tools. I have a background in software dev, run #gentoo #linux and am willing to learn down to the details.

I do not have a background in heat transfer or thermodynamics, which is why I am asking for a tutor.

I promise to use this to design better buildings.

Please help retoot this so I can find someone.

@mike @DonMcCollough yep, I got my X1 Carbon after a recommendation from @popey. Couple generations old, but it’s an i7, 8GB RAM, 256 SSD for less that £300. Best laptop I ever had, and never had a problem with Linux. Highly, highly recommended.

Anyone know of any good #LaTeX packages for #sitemaps or information architecture #diagrams?

I didn't get any responses yesterday and I'm still looking so boosts are appreciated.

My fallback plan is Graphviz but I'd prefer something designed for this purpose so I can see how others are using it for these diagrams too.

Remember when Emacs was the largest memory hog of all the software you could possibly run on your computer? Regardless of Windows, Linux, etc?

I sure do.

Today, it's easily one of the leanest programs. As I type this, Firefox is taking up almost 6.3GB of memory, with all of 3 tabs open. Emacs just *barely* breached 700MB with 9 buffers open, a bunch of eLisp code compiled, and using GTK 2 for its UI.
