@gael changelog generator for last 2 releases of osprey broke?

How could guix development group judge RMS so? Https://

That was much like a witch drowning test or Catholic Inquisition when the Earth was flat and the Sun revolved around it.

They got together on evidence of "private conversation" of which they too were participants to scapegoat another member of the conversation.

This adds up to a lot of demerits against guix and guixsd for me.

Will not be installing until they fix that bug!

Stallman took #gnu and left #fsf with it (leaving FSF with nothing but Kuhn et al). Time for #torvalds to take his #trademarks elsewhere and dump the PR agency (fake 'nonprofit') of Jim #zemlin with customers like #microsoft

Remember when Linux kernel boot was interactive? One could interrupt boot anywhere and be presented a shell by pressing 'I'.

the main hindrance to adoption is the World Wide Web. Every internet tool other than webservers easily advance to that protocol from IPv4. HTTP and its derivatives and analogues tend to require legacy compatibility to properly host connections from clients. Am I wrong?

Update on hacking a laptop to use standard AA NI-HM batteries: It seems one of the duties of the charge controller chip is to convince the laptop to accept power from the battery. This is typically accomplished using the Smart Battery Specification (SBS) Which works over the System Management Bus (SMBus), which itself seems to be an implementation of the I2C bus. The SMBus controls and monitors much of the system, and the SMBus controller is built into the main chip set. So, no disabling that.

Firing mods and forced relicensing: is Stack Exchange still interested in cooperating with the community? - Meta Stack Exchange

To rephrase biblically: the www is passing away, and so are its desires...

Www has become a reprehensible beast; responsible for intellectual waste in all its forms (3 decades and still no efficient way if sending a large file to a remote computer!).

The Internet will do well without http aka the Web.

What is happening when everything runs through and is managed by ? Does that mean systemd is an operating system? So systemd/Linux?

I was thinking of systemd-homed as a replacement for sysyemd-user. Did not check the code. Person! Was I wrong! the whole licensing thing is confusing! "Visual Studio Code is a distribution of the Code - OSS repository with Microsoft specific customizations released under a traditional Microsoft product license."
