I haven't gotten any responses for info on free&open graphics and video graphics basic questions - this tells me that there are no answers
What I feel about this is that 'FOSS' is really looking to create apps like commercial ones but free
What I hoped to see are individual graphics methodologies made accessible to frameworks, such as a browser
This will never happen
NOT because is evil, but because there is no methodological framework that is free which goes back to stallman/gnu fake unix

I need a wireframe modeling tool (free&open) for making theoretical boat designs in blocks (like a 3D InkScape) converting to geometrical lines (sine wave, ellipse, hyperbolic --but not bezier) would be good (but not necessary at moment)

this is a little awkward - I have been wanting to leave FaceBook (for many reasons) but a sailing group I started years ago just hit its stride based on my design ideas (self-pat on back)

I am editing ideas on beta.wikiversity:

After six years in exile, Edward Snowden has a new memoir. In the book and in an interview with WIRED, the world’s most famous whistle-blower elucidates why he stood up to mass surveillance—and his love for an internet that no longer exists.


wow thi is good news -windows hacks say 7 was the only true windows, maybe they can open the whole thing - I will be using it to keep my kid's roblox going w/o subjecting her to Win 10

at the MIT media lab: "senior lab officials circumvented the blacklist by concealing his involvement in the donations. Using Epstein's initials, Ito and other lab staffers identified him in on calendars — whereas other names were fully spelled out"

all pedopiles or pedophile supporters

Really surprised to see support for - filthiest current scandal in our world at least
Far right perceptions of free speech, yeah we get it, mental issues but we have
Left perceptions of free speech pretty much in line with sexual slavery of vulnerable classes by billionaires
I predicted paths like this starting w the response to PTSD outcomes from the terror attack on NYC/WTC 20 yrs ago: get over it'
But sexual slavery? wow that brings us right back socratic times in ways I never imagined

Winlink 2000 - a worldwide system for sending and receiving e-mail over radio without the Internet

Since this system does not rely on the Internet it is widely used by mariners, RV campers, missionaries, and various agencies who need to communicate when the Internet is not available at the last mile location.
The Winlink system consists of a group of Common Message Servers (CMS) placed at various locations around the world. These servers connect via the Internet to Radio Message Servers (RMS) in many geographic locations to form a star network configuration. The Radio Message Servers are the UHF, VHF, or HF RF gateways into the Winlink system. The final component on either side is a client computer device running the software to send/receive messages through your radio. In Internet terms you could think of the Radio as a modem (very loosely speaking).

Everybody is together on this, everyone hoping Italy leads the world out of the heat index nightmare, brings direct democracy to tech, cools things off otherwise such as cut-throat competition that makes us unhappy, even TRUMP !!

Dang, we all want the same thing.. praying for yah, big old boot is a way to write and upload markdown to, for instance, stackoverflow - looks nice, exports in HTML, but does it sftp (etc)? showstopper if it does not
nice for fooling around tho..

Here's the code, do what you want! What? I don't want to spend my life modding YOUR code - all I want is life simplified

@ohyran maybe I should say left-communism done WELL (rather than right)

@ohyran This site should be interesting, what we are looking at in the feminist kurdistani revolution is left-communism done right

These people esp women, have the credz -- they saved the Yazidi peoples from ISIS, saving the first piece of our current world society

They reference Murray Bookchin, NYC leftist who kept Vermont progressive, who created Bernie's path

Just hoping they don't get stuck, stagnate, and suffer institutional creep - cops, etc

I think AI is appropriate despite its obvious misuse. For fully-open use, the specific AI methods need to be fully-adjustable by the user, which can be done of course. I am certain Twitter and FB do just that...

Y'all know what I mean when I say 'AI methods,' right?

Extending this to the group level, the issues of 'social security,' which is really about conflict. The key issue is that maladapting individuals may, say, even kill themselves based on a critical response... This suggests a centralized 'keep them separated' strategy.'

The mastodon I am imagining centers around the individual streaming column as nearly-fully autonomous.
- Management is closer to the browser, possibly even being the browser - webassembly and fully independent
- The streaming columns can attach anywhere (they are allowed, blocking of course), and can be infinite in number
- Further the hooks in the columns make it possible for pretty much any program bringing any type of creativity into mastodon
- What's wrong w the virt mach on the hardware?
