Also, nothing like stupidly inhaling charcoal grill smoke off and on for a few hours and then having part of my brain go “is this Covid?”

We tried to communicate w/ #GitHub re: #Copilot; they have outright refused to answer community questions on Copilot & took it for-profit. Copilot ignores copyleft requirements; so it's time to #GiveUpGitHub GiveUpGitHub.org

@passthejoe you may have to download the image as Mastodon (at least as I see it) flashes things too fast. Look in the lower left corner.

Over the coming months @conservancy will release guides and stories from projects that have moved away from GitHub. Let's shed light on the damage that is caused by centralizing community development on proprietary platforms.

We interrupt this blather about word counts for an important breaking news update:

While my Zen of Debian project has been on Codeberg a long time, I think the double feed to Codeberg and GitHub broke when I made the switch from Master to Main. After that it went GitHub only, but I didn't write much.

Now that I've started working on the LaTeX version, I decided to do the work on Codeberg. The GitHub version will be frozen in time.

I don't know a lot about LaTeX, so be prepared for shenanigans. Bonus is that the half-baked project has a PDF.

Pluto is a difficult object to spot. The easiest way is to take photos over successive nights and look for what moves.

@runeranch Well, PC-BSD no longer exists. It became TrueOS and then that changed from a BSD base to a Linux one. You might want to check out GhostBSD if you want a desktop-oriented FreeBSD out of the box.

@runeranch I had a similar experience when I worked as a field tech at a local ISP from 1996 to 1997, except it was with Linux. I was mainly an Apple guy but then, but the ISP's owner introduced me to Linux, and I was hooked. When my time ended there due to the company going under, he gave me the PC I used at the ISP as a parting gift. It was a 486 PC (not sure which one exactly). That then became my Windows PC which I would attempt to learn Linux on via dual-boot. I ended up using Linux as my secondary OS as I continued using Windows until I could finally afford a new iMac G5 where Mac OS X would take over as my primary OS from Windows (I was still primarily a Mac guy and had a few old Macs, but classic Mac OS was getting left behind). After a bad experience with that iMac thanks to Apple, I went exclusively Linux as my primary OS (around 2008-2009). I delved into BSD for real around 2015 or so (can't remember exactly) with FreeBSD as I mentioned earlier, and the rest you already know.

@claudiom Hmm 🤔 I think it must have been around FreeBSD 5.x (year 2000 - 2002ish). It was at a school for young people. They a FreeBSD server as a host for around 20 GUI terminals running Window Maker (also my first, ha). 🤓 It was a lot of fun and I learned a lot from the admin there at the school. Before that I was strictly a Win user.

@runeranch Which version were you on when you started with FreeBSD? My first encounter with it was with 5.x and I had no idea what I was doing. I then revisited it with 9 (I believe) and just got familiar with it. Currently running 13.1 on a couple of systems at work and dual-booting with Fedora on my desktop at home. I tested OpenBSD sometime around 2018-2019 and fell in love with it, and it's the main BSD I use now. I recently reconnected with Slackware once 15 was released, and it looks to threaten Fedora's long-lasting dominance on my devices.

@claudiom My first real encounter with foss / UNIX based systems was with FreeBSD. Today I mostly use Linux and macOS. But would like to get back to BSD. Just feels like a whole other world. :D

@runeranch I voted BSD but I actually use both Linux and BSD. Writing this from my Slackware laptop while connected to SDF from my OpenBSD laptop and writing an e-mail there. :flan_tongue:

My patient just asked me if we can detect fetal heart beat at 6 wks like the abortion law says . No. We see electrical impulses but it’s not a heart beat since the fetus at six weeks has no heart valves. The sound is artificially generated by US. The law is medically incorrect.

@cblgh Mastodon clients could learn a lot from offline-first email clients.

A fair darling in the nude is Henri-Paul Motte's "The fiancée of Belus", the winner of a beauty contest to find the god's companion for the night. Interestingly, this ritual was imagined by the artist and has no historical basis.
