@zen3ger The world needs less distros, but better distros.

What is a good academic #wiki? Something that people can collaborate on but lightweight as well.

@lizardsquid eternity was a single moment where i could sit and think for as long as i wanted and would only move on once i decided to. i sat there for a trillion years exploring a derelict spaceship, and i was deeply lonely, but i never felt hunger or pain. after all the time i wanted was put into that single moment, i woke up, in my bed, terrified of how little time i had left

@cypnk @eduardomorais a while ago, i saw someone making the point (maybe on here, maybe elsewhere) that my age cohort (roughly: born in late 70s - mid 80s, basically aware of the world pre-internet / pre-mobile-device) might have experienced peak technical literacy in the general population, and it's all downhill from here.

it really resonated, and i haven't encountered any evidence to the contrary.

turning off javascript is great because it turns every site with a loading screen into just the loading screen

Soooo... I tried Amaroq again. Glitches, and the ui doesn’t feel right for me, so back to Tootdon it is.
I really want Mastalab 😫

#floss #linux I'm looking for something similar to onenote but on linux/bsd. What I really care about is syncing notes, anything else is secondary
Can anyone provide me with suggestions?

Beyond that, I'm going to try to find an RTF and/or ODT comptaible word processor (open source if possible.)

Of course, I'm going to cheat. I'll install DOS2SSH and DOSVNC ( complang.tuwien.ac.at/nino/dos ) so that I can keep accessing my application server.

Beyond that, I'll look for an Email program. I'll want some kind of live chat program (there are a few, but I haven't audited any of them in 10 years).

From there, I'll get down to business building a backup system (around next cloud.)

I just realized that intellectual property is probably a big contributor to environmental degradation.

If environmentally friendly technology was open-source, developing countries would have access to it and it would make its use cheaper even in developed countries.

I'd like to put together an ultra-cheap raspberry #pi portable, self-contained system. Huge bonus if I can #solar power it, but not required. System needs a display & keyboard input. Needs wifi. I was eyeing up the pi zero w and solar systems, but there's too much noise out there. Anyone got experience with these?
