@liw Hah, right? You'll probably appreciate this story then: My first conference talk was about a very early version of XCB, and I was 17 and totally nervous about public speaking. I was trying to be very diplomatic about Xlib's, um, faults. But Jim Gettys, who wrote the first version of libX11 in a few days in 1987, was in the front row of my audience, and kept interrupting me to say, "No, Xlib is much worse than that!"

Boost if you agree.
I wonder if I can deploy my crap with Guix instead of this horrible shell script that has grown tentacles
I've mentioned it before, but here's a blogpost on Guix's upcoming participation in Outreachy and GSoC. Apply for a fun (and functional) summer internship! https://www.gnu.org/software/guix/blog/2018/join-gnu-guix-outreachy-gsoc/
Look at this quirky drive-through
Mastodon #cli help: #toot is written in Python but what I want looks basically like "toot curses" with more functionality. It appears to be read-only, a work in progress. #madonctl is apparently powerful but needs templates which are hard to write and a ton of aliases to be useful. I feel both of them lack good user level documentation. How do you do it? I use bitlbee-mastodon, but IRC is also limiting in weird ways. And it's written in C which makes every change hard.
The University of Edinburgh are doing a short, self-paced online course on Co-operative Economics focusing on #workercoop/s.
I presume we might have some interested people here?... :)
Let me know if it's any good!
What do you use to view DICOM files? Specifically, what do you use to view MRI images?
The CD hospital gave us has some kind of Windows executable, but I don't have access to Windows right now. I have Debian GNU/Linux testing and macOS High Sierra.
