An unbiased guide to find the right Linux distribution for you:

I'm getting close to my first Patreon goal of $100 which means it's time to get started on my YouTube/Twitch channels so I'm ready when I hit it! First practice video will be on using LaTeX in and the mic check sounds great!

Finally my one year everyday challenge is up.
Started 13 Oct 2018, decided to push code to my repositories everyday for one year.
Though, I missed some days, 9 to be precise. My highest score 43 commits in a day. Total: 1,266 contribution

Requesting ideas:

I have an SSD with windows on it from back when I built my computer 3 years ago and was still scared Linux wouldn't be all I dreamed. I think it's safe to say that I'm never going to use it at this point 😋.

What would you guys do with an extra 500G SSD?

Anyone have any recommendations for learning Kotlin?

i started using linux because i thought windows vista was a disaster but i kept using linux because i could use it to add 5+ years to the lifetime of our devices

Hello friends! With midterm season approaching quickly, a lot of you might be stressed studying and failing to understand your material.

Fortunately, I'm a PhD student in math and I'm an active TA whose students tend to like him!

I'm always happy to help out for quick sessions, and for something more extended/long term, I'm happy to take Favors, art, or writing in trade, among others! Just DM me here.

Our smart devices are watching us

It's time for us to watch them 👀

Ahead of #Nicetober, I am going to be un-following any accounts that post, like, or re-tweet any content that is:

- Mean-spirited
- Dehumanizing
- Vilifying
- Vulgar

Doesn't mean I don't like you. Doesn't mean you're not an amazing person. I just want to avoid that content.

On that same note, if you are going to be participating in #Nicetober, let me know! I'd love to follow (and amplify) more folks spreading love and kindness!


Okay, here is another freebie :) I will put in a real one before the end of the weekend.

Basically, you are given a list from which you need to create a new list where each element is the product of all the "OTHER" elements.

I found a few interesting corner cases.

I challenge you to give it a try!

Read the challenge here:

My attempt is checked into that repo as well.

If you have any favorite Python :python: books, lectures, articles, blog posts, etc. I would appreciate suggestions! I know very little 😋

I'd rather truly understand transferable concepts than work thought syntax tutorials over and over. So info on broad concepts, data structures, algorithms, etc would be great.

I don't have a computer science or mathematics degree, so things that start rudimentary and ramp up as I go would be awesome.

Thanks 🤓

Just re-upping this offer: because being comfortable with git is a barrier to entry to many FS/OSS projects, and because I care deeply about lowering those barriers, I will tutor anyone who asks for help with git, and/or connect them with any mentor(s) they might prefer.

I'll do this while I put energy and work into making the tool more approachable, and into making better tools and learning paths.

Boosts gratefully appreciated.

Tried to color in an ink sketch. Really like the results C:

Today I got promoted to IT manager position after my proposal got approved by the management to use multiple open source solutions and replace propriety products the company is using.

Tests went well and they were happy with the services. I will be handling the migration and training for the coming months.

To thank the wonderful open source community I will be donating a part of my pay for the coming 3 months.
