A quick tip: if you want to see where a library's files go in (Arch)Linux when installing a package, they're listed on the package's page.

For example: archlinux.pkgs.org/rolling/arc

You can see the "files" section. Really helpful.

Here's a little thing that may not be obvious to many people....

When you install an open-source app from Google Play or the Apple app store, there is no guarantee that what you install actually matches the public code.

@fdroidorg are doing a great service. They independently build the public source code for apps from scratch, review for common issues, and publish their builds. Thanks to "reproducible builds" it's possible to verify they do not tamper with the code.

500,000 users in the German state of Baden-Württemberg adopted BigBlueButton as their classroom software and conference tool in 2020. That number represents one-third of all the teachers and pupils in the state.

I have had Covid. It was nasty. My antibody levels were high two months after that, and six months after the first antibody test I still have 60% of them left.

I suspect that the level would rise should I come in contact with somebody infected.

Let's discuss it, people. Bring recent studies from trustworthy sources and no governmental posters!

What do we know and how we do know we know it?

Shouldn't we pause and reflect on that?

It gets even worse for those living in-between two opposing forces, for example Russia and EU.

When push really comes to shove, what should they do? Vaccinate twice? Thrice? It might have been about health in the beginning, but now it's good ol' politics and greed.

It is borderline impossible to have a clear judgement regarding all the vaccination business.

We "do not know" how good a measure antibodies are yet vaccine is proclaimed to be our only hope, because it spikes them so high. Well of course, immune response increases antibodies.

There is so much money to be gained from vaccination that they would do anything to further promote it. Disclaimer: I am not anti-vax, it's simply getting ridiculous.

Majority of the European Parliament welcomes the Commission's intention to oblige e-mail, messaging and chat providers to search all private messages for allegedly illegal material and report to the police (#chatcontrol) by 580:76:37.

Not to brag, but I'm eating an exceptionally tasty apple. I still have two more should you want to come over 😉

I am going to post here everytime I have an urge to go on youtube or get distracted from my work. Let's see if I can stay focused all day :')

To those (like me) who were wondering why the Perseverance rover landed "at the site of an ancient river delta", here's some info on water of Mars: learningenglish.voanews.com/a/

Oh, and if you put a comma instead of a semicolon in a 'for' loop, the whole thing closes without a word.

Poll time! For how long have you been using LibreOffice?

is really taking its time to download mere 2.4 gigs of data.

Last but not least, some error messages do not tell you the line on which the error has occurred. Neat.

Yeah, also imagine that language having neither "and" nor "or", or any similar things. You can't just do "if this and this then that".

No, you can't multiply boolean expressions either (which could have been a neat hack), because they do not convert to int.

Gotta go through 400 lines of scientific code in a language that doesn't exist outside the company I work at (so no debugger or manuals) and extend it in a weekend. Among other things.

I'm tempted to purchase this one and make a casing for it 🤔
