> os/2 is so bad that in three years of trying i have been unable to make a cohesive video about it because there's just too much to cover. here is the kind of material you would get if i was able to make any progress on this. os/2 is *unspeakably* bizarre…

This was so hilarious I started hyperventilating.

Read headline "A Complete 4-Year Course Plan for an Artificial Intelligence Undergraduate Degree" and not sure if course is in artificial intelligence, or it's an undergraduate program for an AI.

Wake up at 5am, thinking it's 8am.

Go back to sleep at 6am, wake up at 8am feeling like it's still 6am.

There's a new venture in India called JioMart that's a result of the combination of Jio Retail working with Jio Platforms.

They might as well just call it JoJa Mart and get it over with.

Brilliant project that tidies up public domain ebooks.

Gutenberg and Internet Archive are wonderful resources, but the texts are poorly formatted for actual use, especially on ereaders.

This is a volunteer driven initiative to bring these texts up to date with modern standards and make them look as good as possible on the page.

❓ Poll: Have you ever had to report content in your feed to a fediverse mod?

Followup: how fast was the response time?

Boosts requested; I'm writing an article about the moderation of decentralized networks.

The FSF asks Microsoft to release the source code to Windows 7; Microsoft releases the source to GW Basic.

In some ways I'm releasing it like Linus released Linux back in the 1990s: posting to the Usenet of our day with an offer for folks to check out this project that I've been working on.

We'll see where this leads.

I don't know as much about Apache Kafka but the graphic at the article helped reconcile an issue I've been having forever, which is how you capture both changes and state:

Next perhaps Nextcloud can get a collaborative whiteboard with the same ease as sharing documents.

Perhaps there is some future for Nextcloud and Spacedeck?

Very excited to try the new High Performance Backend to talk. This has been probably the biggest problem with my recommending Nextcloud- that the Talk backend just doesn't work beyond a few people at once.

Hey Fediverse, especially the Venn overlap of librarians, retro computing enthusiasts and FOSS folks - at the libraries in Pittsburgh there are kiosks with vetted, locked-down, kid-safe edutainment programs from the late 90's and early 2000's. They're all branded with AWE Learning. There's a graphical frontend that lets the kid select and launch from a list of games.

Can I take an old laptop and turn it into something similar to those AWE Learning terminals, but with FOSS?

Boosts appreciated
