there were some things i ddn't knew about raspberry pis:

"Linux runs on that ARM CPU, we know that, but we might be surprised to learn that Linux on this device is only a second class citizen. The GPU cores run a real time operating system called ThreadX. This operating system is closed source and rules the system without the open source Linux Kernel being aware of it."

and guess who bought the ThreadX operating system last april?

@gnome A few years ago, I was watching my sister doing her college homework; she was studying biology. I saw her editing a photo in the GIMP, on Windows.

"Sis, I didn't know you used the GIMP."

"Oh, yeah, some friends at school told me about it, it's a Photoshop clone one can just download."

"..."

"..."

"Sis, did you know I was the maintainer like 15 years ago? I wrote the first third-party plugin for it."

"WHAT"

I'm happy that we've given non-computer nerds good software.

Made a little thing:

wev, or Wayland event viewer, analogous to X11's xev

@kev would you mind changing the Tor settings on the CDN?

I can open images via a browser but images don't load via my application. (probably due to the user agent? @Tusky )

#whenmarniewasthere is on at 1pm on #SBS World Movies. This is a stunning Studio Ghibli animated movie and everyone with an appreciation for Miyazaki works should see this.

It seems do this already as part of their build/deployment processes.

It seems is the preferred "project management" system in this regard. If large companies have larger requirements that take them out of the "git" workflow, I wonder if the "1 per team" PR system would help small-medium companies where there are multiple teams across the business.

For massive dev orgs, having a PR with multiple approval requirements. Such as 1 user per specified groups.

Then you could guarantee that Product / Marketing and Dev have all "approved" the pull request.

Get on it @gitlab

Very cool use case of ALBs in

Ofcourse you need the forsight to actually provision multiple endpoints. But still an awesome idea.

Really, @purism? You copy a bunch of open-source apps and make it look like they are yours without any mention of the original apps? I think you should delete these apps immediately and publicly apologize. Or at least don't have the audacity to call yourself a "Social Purpose Corporation that does not exploit people and puts doing social good over maximizing profit ", because its obviously not true.

A bit curious of @purism to fork @Tusky / K9 Mail and not even mention that anywhere on their website or app listings?

Also I can note the following:
- What is the point of the forks? Do they even at least pre-fill the "social.librem.one" domain for users?
- Is the source even published at all? If not, it's violating GPL. I can't find anything on their Github, at least.

Happy to announce I have contributed over 75,000 photos to #openstreetcam, that's nearly 1,000km of footage. This is the (one of the) #opensource equivalents of Google Streetview. This was possible thanks to a Waylens dashcam sponsored by Telenav!

Computer vision and machine learning learns how to recognise street signs and traffic rules from this footage.

When websites say "use our app, it's much better", they mean better for them, not you.
