We are living in an age where everything from clothing to furniture to technology is cheap and disposable. The assumption is that nothing lasts, so one might as well buy the cheapest thing and throw it away when it inevitably breaks. Nowhere is this more true than the phone market, but it's something we want to change with the Librem 5.

Thanks for the recommendation!
If you are looking for a recommendation, Catan is always great fun.

Been there! I was trying out a way of running a machine as an OSless box and you boot off of a usb disk but I forgot you need to leave it plugged in when I needed some of the data on another machine.

If you have a .org domain name: go renew it now. For the full 10 years.

Registration rights for .org were just bought by a private equity firm. And as part of that contract, the price caps were removed.

Anything in .org will get much more expensive, soon.

A ten year renewal will cost you a bit over a hundred bucks. Which is probably less than one year will cost you in the very near future.

If someone's looking for an app idea, I would love a nice GTK Mumble client. The audio quality is really nice, especially for calls with a lot of participants, but the UI of the Qt app is terrible.

In a sense, it is. The future of public transport is unlikely to be buses and trains, it's much more likely to be automated ride services. This is already happening in Japan with there self-driving minibuses from rural towns to cities and should make its way to the west.

ssh is probably the most underrated tool I use every day. The capability for me to sit basically anywhere on the planet with an internet connection and remotely get stuff done over a secure connection is a boon. I don't think any other tool comes close to the usefulness of ssh.

We did it! We came together as a community and met our fundraising goal to defend software freedom from patent litigation.

Next up comes the hard part - winning this lawsuit and setting precedent. Stay tuned for updates as we progress forward

To everyone who still makes text-based tutorials, thank you!

I'd much rather follow a text tutorial than wait 15+ minutes for a video tutorial to load.

Your work is very much underappreciated. Thanks again! πŸ’œ

Openclipart.org has finally been [properly] replaced with freesvg.org

It's a site, based on Laravel, providing CC0 and public domain SVG files, including the 55,000+ we scraped from openclipart.org

Untangle is one of the reasons why I kept using Linux to begin with. I had a spare machine back in 2008 that was just Ubuntu with sgt-puzzles installed so I could play it.

Dosbox and civ with a usb keyboard and mouse (and monitor if possible).

Just re-upping this offer: because being comfortable with git is a barrier to entry to many FS/OSS projects, and because I care deeply about lowering those barriers, I will tutor anyone who asks for help with git, and/or connect them with any mentor(s) they might prefer.

I'll do this while I put energy and work into making the tool more approachable, and into making better tools and learning paths.

Boosts gratefully appreciated.

Thanks for the clarification! =]
I was concerned that there would be a bleeding edge version that was on all the beta devices and a LTS version.
