Es geht auch anders, digitale Nachhaltigkeit in Schulen: "Was der Einsatz von gebrauchten Geräten, freier Software sowie Solarstrom und Bienenstöcken mit der Vermittlung von Werten zu tun hat, hat uns Felix Schoppe vom Georg-Büchner-Gymnasium in Seelze bei Hannover erklärt". https://netzpolitik.org/2020/mit-linux-rechnern-zur-digitalen-nachhaltigkeit/ #Bildung #FreieSoftware #Nachhaltigkeit

For those who don't know GW-Basic, it is based strictly on line numbers which where part of the program. That's why you used steps of 10 (10, 20, 30,..). Because you could only add something later when some unused line numbers where left. Also no functions exists so a lot of goto's where used. 🙈
Memories... Microsoft GW-Basic was my first programing language. Roughly 25 years later it become Free Software https://devblogs.microsoft.com/commandline/microsoft-open-sources-gw-basic/ #Microsoft #GWBasic #coding #history

Die freie, dezentrale und offene Kommunikationsplattform #Matrix soll bei der Bundeswehr das proprietäre #Stashcat ersetzen. 👍
#Mozilla published a guide to video call apps’ privacy and security features and flaws. I'm disappointed, the guide focus way to much on proprietary and centralized services instead of highlighting the benefits of free and decentralized solutions. https://blog.mozilla.org/blog/2020/04/28/which-video-call-apps-can-you-trust/ ...not a #OpenWeb
Thanks for all the suggestions so far. But I don't search for a clipboard manager, I use already the clipboard Indicator extension. I'm looking for something more permanent where I can manage also larger snippets and then access them on demand. Something like a "static clipboard indicator" where I can manage (aka create, edit, etc) the content which then stays there until I delete it and which doesn't get mixed up with the regular clipboard.
I'm looking for a easy and clean text snippet manager to store and easily access regular used snippets for mails, forums, etc. In a perfect world it would come with a GNOME shell extension which allows me to select a snippet with one click, copy it to the clipboard and insert it wherever I need it. Do you know anything like that?

The Dutch government wants the country’s public services to share as Free Software any software solutions that are written for or by them. Publishing software source code benefits public interests including innovation, economic activity, openness and information securit. According to a study by Gartner, sharing only 20% of their software would result in a benefit of more than EUR 1.1 billion. https://joinup.ec.europa.eu/collection/open-source-observatory-osor/news/legal-barrier-be-removed #publicCode #FreeSoftware #OpenSource
"But last week, the Qt Company suddenly informed both the #KDE e.V. board and the KDE Free QT Foundation that the economic outlook caused by the Corona virus puts more pressure on them to increase short-term revenue. As a result, they are thinking about restricting ALL #Qt releases to paid license holders for the first 12 months. They are aware that this would mean the end of contributions via Open Governance in practice." https://mail.kde.org/pipermail/kde-community/2020q2/006098.html #FreeSoftware
