I want to hug those Indian women at the #Olympics2020. Not because of the medals (though that too) but because of all the fights they've had to win to be athletes at all.
Where can we get all 5 volumes of Ponniyin Selvan Novel, in english?
Project Madurai has only 3 volumes.
பொன்னியின் செல்வன் - ஆங்கில மொழிபெயர்ப்பு 5 பாகங்களும் இணையத்தில் எங்கே கிடைக்கும்? மதுரைத் திட்டத்தில் இந்திரா நீலமேகம் மொழிபெயர்ப்பு 3 பாகங்கள் மட்டுமே கிடைக்கிறது. https://www.projectmadurai.org/pmworks.html
@tshrinivasan I'd still like to be able to calculate (Hindu) holidays in Emacs. But that turns out to be rather complicated (and there are multiple variants of calculation, South Indian, Bengali, Nepali etc.).
There is, in fact, Common Lisp code for doing some of this: https://www.cs.tau.ac.il/~nachum/calendar-book/papers/hindu-paper.pdf . But it's copyrighted as far as I know, so couldn't be just easily translated to Emacs Lisp (I looked into this about a decade ago: https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/emacs-devel/2011-06/msg00408.html )

Getting Started With Emacs Lisp Hands On - A Practical Beginners Tutorial
i remember when i first joined the fediverse a few years ago i wasn't expecting much
but then i made my first post & the lovely people of weirder.earth (which still had its "a" back then) started responding immediately! i was shocked!
on most social networks, it feels like you're posting into the void until you build up a community yourself
joining a small mastodon instance is like joining a pre-existing community. i think that's special. and the local tl is largely what allows that to exist.
Protip: when installing a server, install #Tor on it and have its SSH port accessible as an onion service. That way, if you mess up with network config, you might still be able to access the onion service.
(Really! It’s saved me a few times already.)
