Aaaaaand won't install... what a good use of my entire morning.....

has been running for about 45 minutes on this new theme for Mate.... I hope it actually works... this is time consuming just to try out a new theme.

So I have borked multiple installs on my new PineBook. I am trying to just modify a Q4OS install to simply 'be' Debian Testing. I don't think it's going to work.

Armbian won't even try too install and I'm a little nervous about modifying the source.list file since they upgraded to the 1080p screen since regular installs seem to have issues with this hardware.

Anyone have ideas?

so, my new pinebook arrived. it was upgraded to a 1080p ips panel.. absolutely gorgeous.

but, alas, I am too tired to play with it tonight as I just spent the last 36 hrs doing an emergency domain migration for a client. We just acquired this client and the previous IT guy didn't do any backups of the ONLY domain controller. Needless to say, a faulty UPS destroyed the PSU and both system drives. i had to rebuild AD and file server from scratch and migrate all users and shares to new domain

I have been thinking about and lately. Part of the reason I started writing about things is because I wanted to work out what I believe philosophically.

I know for a fact that I stand against the whole concept of copyrights. It is a government enforced pseudomonopoly. It is 'protection' enforced by coercive and violent force.

DRM on the otherhand is neither coercive nor violent by nature. It is placing a restriction on access, but I think that is the right of the creator.

Sadly, this is part of my "books nobody will ever read again" collection.

When I was younger, this was my bible, as it covered everything I wanted to know: assembler, the bios, RAM, interrupts, TSR and drivers. VGA, mouse and SoundBlaster specs.

1200 pages with example sources in Pascal, C and assembler. The internet didn't exist back then, and this book became my teacher for many years.

This article was annoying. The author said that he writes everything on Google Docs first, then downloads it and uses LibreOffice to edit and format it. Why not use other non-invasive, native tools?

One of my favorite programs that I only recently found is FocusWriter. It is in the Debian repos. Give it a try!

You will likely need to modify the theme as soon as it is installed... I did.

I'm actively recruiting volunteer devs for a native Signal / Signal-like client in Gtk, in the hopes that we can bring it to the @Purism Librem 5 phone. Please contact sean.obrien@puri.sm if interested.

Winamp was a thing for you in the past?

Corporate media now bringing it back to the spotlight after a new release some time back.

BUT: Winamp is proprietary, never mind the memories;

Sailfish OS 3 from Jolla could be your next Mobile OS.

After the death of Winblows Phone, Sailfish OS has become the third mobile ecosystem after iOS and Android.

Sailfish OS’s heritage lies in Nokia times, especially in the MeeGo operating system. Prior to 2011 Nokia and Intel had a vision of an open mobile operating system.
