Want an easily accessible terminal session always open on your computer but don’t want the hassle of an extra screen? Hear me out…

which linux and/or FOSS related publications would you recommend?

someone's turned the PIC32MX170 into a little home computer, with VGA output... only instead of BASIC like the Maximite family, or Forth like the Fignition and noPC, its top level language is C.

In a seven-day running battle in the open ocean, 43 U-boats attempted to destroy Convoy ONS-5; but despite sinking 13 ships, German losses have been catastrophic. 6 submarines, U-125, U-192, U-438, U-531, U-630 & U-638, were sunk in last 24 hours alone.

Allied convoy ONS-5, heading from Liverpool to Halifax, has decisively fought off a German submarine attack in the North Atlantic: the merchant convoy & its warship escorts has sunk 7 U-boats & seriously damaged 7 more, turning tables on Kriegsmarine "wolfpacks".
