TIL that apt has support for downloading packages and updates through tor.

Just install apt-transport-tor and change url on your sources.list from URL to tor+URL

“Parasite” is a cross over hit, becoming the first South Korean film ever nominated for an Oscar. Its success is due to the fact that it encapsulates the parasitic relationship between the rich and the working class.

So, SourceHut is not hosted in anyone's cloud. I own all of the hardware outright and colocate most of it in a local datacenter.

I just built a new server for git.sr.ht, and boy is she a beat. It cost me about $5.5K as a one-time upfront cost, and now I just pay for power, bandwidth, and space, which runs about $650/mo for *all* of my servers (10+).

Ran back of the napkin numbers with AWS's price estimator for a server of equivalent specs, and without even considering bandwidth usage it'd cost me almost TEN GRAND PER MONTH to host JUST that server alone on AWS.

AWS is how techbro startups pile up and BURN their investor money.

I thought I should try out on my laptop, but it turns out I've been using it already without realizing.

They have several co-ops as members, and also a related cooperative of worker co-ops:

The Collatz Conjecture says that any number sequence where at each step you either halve the previous value if it is even, or multiply it by three and add one if it is odd, will end up at the the value one.

A deceivingly simple description. It happens to be true for every number we tried, but we don't have the theory for why.

If you have a project, please use a Free Software solution such as for translating the app, manual or documentations.

Today, I just tried to help for its Persian translation on Transifix (which is a non-free solution). It doesn't recognize numbers in other languages! Crowdin also is not much better in such cases.

Free Software community deserves to be provided Free Software solutions for their contributions.
