Today the public of the Netherlands has their chance to say their farewells to crime reporter Peter R. de Vries, who was shot almost 2 weeks ago and passed away last week from his injuries.

Because I'm not in Amsterdam today I wanted say my farewell in the public space of the Fediverse: Peter, you have helped so many for so long; I hope people will help your family now and hope others will stand up, and take you as an example of how to be a good person. Farewell Peter!

Using master branch of XeTeX, and with many syntax error fixes to xetex.web (ok tbh, it didn't take that long), then

$ weave xetex.web && sed '1s/webmac/xewebmac/' -i xetex.tex && xetex xetex.tex

Will probably be uploading that file somewhere so others don't have to go through this.

Lorem ipsum is placeholder text, a mishmash of Latin developed by Letraset in 1966, borrowed from pages of Cicero. It’s a kind of greeking. Greeking comes from the phrase “it’s all Greek to me,” coined by Shakespeare in Julius Caesar to refer to…someone speaking about Cicero.

1. That can't happen.
2. That doesn't happen on my machine.
3. That shouldn't happen.
4. Why does that happen?
5. Oh, I see.
6. How did that ever worked?

Share a project idea you've worked on in private, made some progress, but eventually gave up on and never published.

Would you still love to finish it some day? Did you find an alternative solution? Realized the idea wasn't that great after all?

Looking forward to seeing all your replies! ❤️

Does anyone have a ? The sealed version is back in stock and I've been considering moving towards a more open platform for my smartwatch.

Boosts appreciated🙏

When changing the resolution on my iMac 5k late 2015 I am experience an artifact (horizontal lines).

This happens on all Linux distros including xorg and wayland.

I know that the system has one of those three GPU's inside:

"AMD Radeon R9 M380/M390/M395",

but neofetch/lspci reports:

"AMD ATI Firepro M6100"

and my settings:

"AMD Bonair"

I am using the "Radeon" driver.

I've been dealing with the issue very long and need help from some LinuxPros.

Can any one help?
