The issue with people not understanding filesystems isn't that people don't understand filesystems; it's that for decades now the leading technology companies have been executing a campaign to strip basic computer literacy from everyone who isn't college educated, allowing the formation of a cult of tech and the mysticization of the process in order to justify monopolies and oligopologies with outsized influence over daily life for everyone on Earth.

Does anyone know of an UK association, organisation, guild, group, etc. that supports independent online ebookshops?

The Booksellers Association doesn't.

I already provide certain benefits and deals to authors & publishers, so am seriously considering starting my own group. 🤔

@rjek On the IBM Z architecture, user mode is called "problem state". Of course some of us can make problems in supervisor mode too

A reminder that you CAN market your Triffids as "free range" as long as they are not physically confined within a roofed structure, but you can NOT market them as "organic" if they're free-hunting within a city, unless you can provide a documentation chain certifying the 100% organic status of all humans they ate.

The Triffid Marketing Council understands that your Triffids may dislike organic dietary restrictions, but it's for their own good. And of course the health of the Triffid brand.

Einkbro is a seriously good tablet browser

I just need to mention it again.

This is an Android browser aimed at E-Ink devices (though it works for any Android device). It's optimised foir E-Ink's strengths and weaknesses.

That actually makes it a really good browser for reading content online, which ... it turns out a whole hell of a lot of present-generation mobile browsers kind of suck at.

The developer's also highly responsive and I've seen a few of my own issues and requests addressed, which is a breath of fresh air. Oh, and it's FOSS.

Particle trails!
Painting these is a labour of love for me. It's really soothing. I'll be painting some new ones in the coming weeks if anyone would like to get their hands on an original #sciart

Sentences I did not expect to read, (part of a continuing series):

“After the salmon chaos incident some people had already changed their name three times and now have no way to change them back”
