I just read something where someone claimed that "Live probiotics in food work better than probiotics in pills"
This comes from a misunderstanding of how probiotics work.
Given the same dosing of probiotics and the same strains, the effect will be the same, but often the fermented foods that come have probiotics also have prebiotics.
Prebiotics, mainly in the form of digestible fiber, create a healthy environment for those probiotics to live- that is what makes them more effective.
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.
Health, Diet, Ketogenic Lifestyle
When the COVID thing started, I got back into a lot of very bad habits, fueled by easy to store carbs- gained a ton of weight.
This week I decided to go back to keto, where I'd lost a lot of weight and more importantly, had a ton of energy, but that transition sucks.
Not sleeping enough, needing to pee during the night, muscle soreness. The transition from SAD to Keto is not fun, but I look forward to all the benefits I used to have.
Do you drink this? If so, do you like it?
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 #nextcloud 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.
Very excited to read this:
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?
Hi Fediverse 👋
to break the quietness of this account, here's a quick news flash:
- We added a list with Zoom alternatives 🤙
- We replaced some entries on "Bubbling under" 🔧
- We added Cryptpad to the Doodle list as it has a poll feature 🗒️
- Our DRM article has images now 🙃
