Specifically the Romans measured things in "libra" (which is why the symbol for Libra is a scale), but people under the Romans who used Proto-Germanic heard the phrase "libra pondo" (Latin for "the weight measured in libra") and just started being like "haha oh yeah this thing is X pondo heavy". So the word "pound" is derived from the Latin word for "weight" ("pondus") but we use "lb" because that's how the Romans abbreviated libra, the actual unit of measurement they used.
Edit your PDFs directly in #libreoffice writer.
When exporting a text document to PDF, tick the "Hybrid PDF" option. This will create a PDF that also contains the .odt file inside. This allows you to either open the PDF in any document viewer as a PDF or in a text editor as an .odt file without any formatting loss. Try it for yourself and never lose the source file to a PDF!
What's cool in the #XMPP community:
It's a community.
Even the vendors or software developers are reboosting the release notifications of new software version from another vendor/developer to make it spread to a wider audience.
I like that community! :-)

A little tech preview on iOS of a new "setup/link second device" flow ... Delta chat here is using the evolving new Rust implementation of IPFS https://github.com/n0-computer/iroh/ ... and, who knows, a couple of more features might spring from that ;)
Video of my #MCH2022 talk about #Signal is already available:
> This is a rant about how moving ecosystems are not a good reason for centralizing a crucial service, how stickers are no substitute for a desktop client that does not crash, and how effectively shutting out less popular OS platforms is just not cool.
This is a rant. Take with a grain of salt and perhaps some popcorn.
To explain why this is cool, a belt 3D printer (I brought one of the first to market with my buddies @email@example.com and @NAK3DDesigns@twitter.com😎) lets you *print things larger than the printer itself*- it's like a Tardis. For now, thermoplastic, but theoretically anything extrudable.
A wonderful write-up about tar file format and why computational complexity matters even in cases you wouldn't think it does!
