The murder of Atatiana Jefferson 

...turn around again, running into the group of merchants as fast as you can. They are seemingly surprised by your unconventional reaction. Before they fully switched back to conscious decision making, you turn left passing a few empty market stands. You grab a colorful... towel?... and turn right and left a few times to confuse your followers.

After you are so confused where you are that you believe the merchants must be as well, you run into a street unknown to you.

Liebe Entitäten,
es geht um #Selm!
In einer Ratssitzung hat der Bürgermeister erhebliche Zweifel daran geäußert, dass die Selmer Bürger*innen Interesse an einem Klimaschutz-Konzept haben.

Am 04.11. um 19Uhr hat der Bürgermeister ins Bürgerhaus eingeladen.
Thema: Der Klimawandel,der Klima-Notstand,das Klimaschutz-Konzept und die Kosten.

Deshalb, Supported die Selmer Klima-Aktivisten*innen!Wir wollen zeigen das es uns Wichtig ist. Wenn Ihr aus Selm und Umgebung kommt,dann kommt am 4.11. vorbei!

Cool teardown video from Applied Science that reveals how analog era snapshot cameras printed the date on the film negative:

With the segmented digits, you'd think it's a tiny fluorescent display, but it's actually more interesting that that.

if i had to use windows on my current laptop, i would actually have to throw it away

using linux on it has allowed me to keep using a computer while living in poverty

in the long run, free software benefits everyone

to be fair: This was 101% user error. I just wish the program told me more details about my mistake.

How not to: Helpful error messages

"I found no \citation commands---while reading file"

means:

"please sudo apt install biber"

Last August, the excellent Gitlab forge migrated to Google Cloud : -(
about.gitlab.com/blog/2018/07/

As a direct consequence, the site is no longer accessible from several countries. Indirect consequence: sysadmin and developpers in these same countries can no longer download Gitlab's source code to install it on their servers.

@Framasoft provides a mirror of Gitlab Debian repositories: apt.gitlab.mirror.framasoft.or

Feel free to share the information (in other languages if possible).

I will not participate in #Hacktoberfest this year, although contributing to #OpenSource and #FreeSoftware is my day job. First, I already have enough t-shirts. But second, the ecosystem I use on a daily basis is mostly made up of projects that use GitLab, or BitBucket, or sr.ht, or Fossil, or sending patches by mail, or GNU Savannah, or (good grief!) even SourceForge. I think only two of the projects I contributed last year were on GitHub.

The #FOSS world is so much bigger. Don't forget that.
