Here's a guide that proves #gaming is easy and fun on #Linux.
The Twitter purge is continuing. Even left wing media is being purged now. We all knew this day would come.
It's time we spread the word and make the fediverse rise up.
White House releases infrastructure report card for all of the states.
It appears the highest grade is C. The lowest is D.
For an area that receives less sun and has more rainy days than Seattle, it just doesn't make that much sense to invest in this. Not only that, but what happens when it snows? Once the solar panels are covered, there's no energy produced.
PA Governor Tom Wolf announces the largest solar energy commitment in the US by a state.
‣ 50% of state gov't energy will be created with 7 new solar arrays to be built across the state.
‣ 191 MW | 361 GWh/yr will be produced by this initiative.
Halifax Forum wants to give the John McCain award to Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen in recognition for her efforts of defiance of the #CCP and COVID-19. The China-cozy Canadian government said they would pull funding and support away from HFX if they gave the award to Tsai.

hey #fediverse !
I'm looking for a #freesoftware for indexing textfiles (esp. pdf) to be able to fast-search them for words/phrases.
I'm doing a lot of research for my writings during my studies and I'm so tired of opening every pdf, looking for stuff I can use and then repeat it with the next one.
Maybe you can help me out with a suggestion.

It's like they designed it to fail. Oh, and never touch medical devices, it's a regulatory minefield. #rightstorepair

Ontario Premier Doug Ford orders a stay-at-home order and for retail to only sell essential items. Pharmacies and garden centers will remain open.
The 2021 Renault T series Evolution trucks were released yesterday IRL and the launch party was in #EuroTruckSimulator2. I have to say, it is a really nice truck and really like the cell phone holder, cup holder (although there only 1 now), and LED front turn signals. There's a contest going on now to design your own truck.
