  • Hey everybody, I'm recommending these forums around, and in the Framework community discourse in particular. Suit up!

    Just had a look at one question in their forums, about Debian and a realtek wi-fi, it has been going for a few months now, [last post yesterday] so far no one has pointed them to the latest Linux drivers on guilt hub

    I didn't come across it so far, but I'll have a look soon.
    I'm going to get a Framework laptop shipped soon! Fedora Silverblue is going to be this time.

    I was thinking of getting one myself, but they didn't have all of the parts available the last time I was on their site (which was maybe 3 months ago). Has that changed?

    I just got one pre-ordered when they did their last event, by end of March. I'm in Batch 1 for the 3rd Gen with Intel 13th. That night / morning they had everything available.

    When I finally have a new job, I'll look into getting one then. The laptop I'm using now is like a beater car. It may not be in the best or newest condition, but it at least works.
    I'm testing Silverblue "my way", a.k.a., "let's use no other thing and let's not look back for 6 months at least"
    I have recovered a Dell Inspiron 13-7378 with Fedora 37. And it feels good.
    I cannot post threads. I was going to open an offtopic to say that I have Mastodon hosted at home in a Raspberry Pi and it works like a charm.

    What an amazing machine. Flawless experience.

    Change my mind.

    "I cannot post threads."...Why not ?

    Mastodon.....change your mind?...I would not know where to start. it is a step away/forward from twitter (as I understand it).....I have zero experience with either.
    I see twitter as a gargantuan tax write off for its current owner.

    Haha! It was a little outage, I guess.

    The "change my mind" was more on the Raspberry Pi component, mastodon all good.
    This week I moved definitely to mastodon after joining in 2016, leaving twitter for good. Indeed, I run my own instance!

    I have not been into Twits/tweets or any other social media, except Face book, which I hate, but my security blind relatives insist on using to keep in contact, is this one any better security wise?
    By the way, you have been a cobber for a week now, has it sunk in yet?

    Just don't let it become a time vampire and avoid the drama as much as possible. I learned those from experience, which is why I don't use any social media platforms anymore.

    I am quite upset with the last video of Chris Titus Tech. It's basically showing us how to break debian (minute 14:12) by first removing the sources for security updates, and then switching branches (which leads to a frankendebian)

    No, he installed bookworm, and then (i) removed the security sources "just so you don't have duplicated sources [sic]" and then (ii) changed to the sid tree and performed an upgrade over a bookworm install which can break everything (-> frankendebian).

    It's like that race they chase a cheese down a hill.

    Sid's packages are intended to be used for development purposes on a chroot environment, not to be put in front of a final user. We're confusing sid with a rolling release, which is not.

    I find the plasma desktop environment and the programs it include, overwhelming. I mean, it's nice and fast, but in terms of how many options they put in front of you by default and in every single screen and aspect of them, it's just too much, and too much at all times. It's going to take me a while to get used to it.
    I think it is a good idea to put the timezone in the signature of the messages. It helps in managing the expectations when someone is waiting for an answer, and may help the admins in some way. I just did. Thanks for coming to my TED talk!

    None of those acronyms would really work with human readers. I've just put country and state, it's much more human friendly to say Australia/NSW rather than UTC+10/+11. In the end, it's just to more or less figure out if the person that is talking to you may be sleeping or not. Nobody knows what UTC offset they live in so that seeing UTC+11 would be helpful.

    Agreed, a country or continent would help [but I do have my doubts at times when watching quiz programs, the other night was question was named a capital city in Africa and the contestant said Belgium]

    While I don't hate every TED talk (one favorite that comes to mind was Alex Winters talking about the darknet), I have noticed a pattern where the speaker can make anything sound legitimate (even if it's exaggerated or misleading claims), and the audience will still clap their hands and think they know what they're talking about. This is why I've stopped watching them.
    Booster taken!

    I already have two AstraZeneca's....the mix is "hopefully" good (their word not mine).....my gp actually used the phrase "she'll be right mate'.....

    Yes, that's what they say, but they won't give you a strong answer "you should choose this because this and this". It's like "here are the brochures for you to choose LOL"

    Sounds like a holiday advertisement.
    When the experts get around to using words such as 'may' and 'could' and 'perhaps' or 'will likely'.......usually followed by...it really is too early to tell.......you know the world is in trouble.
    Onward and Upward.

    My wife volnteered to buy me the C++ Programming Language (Stroustrup) for Christmas, and it seems someone must be copying it by hand. Damn supply chain.
