Fight Against

"Digital Restrictions Management is the practice of imposing technological restrictions that control what users can do with digital media. When a program is designed to prevent you from copying or sharing a song, reading an ebook on another device, or playing a single-player game without an Internet connection, you are being restricted by DRM. In other words, DRM creates a damaged good; it prevents you from doing what would be possible without it."

Yes, The name matters. It will always remind us how and why everything started. Use the term GNU/Linux instead of "Linux" .

Read ~1000 lines of dired.el source code... 3500 more lines to go.

'guix shell' is among us! 🥳

Like 'guix environment' it'll help you spawn one-off environments and development environments, only more easily and more efficiently.

How well does #SoftwareHeritage archive source for #Guix packages? How does that evolve over time?

Timothy Sample publishes the first “Preservation of Guix Report”:

For recent commits, 73% of the package source code is definitely archived! 👍🏼

It's been a wild ride to $500k ARR:

I don't know. Maybe it's time to make this public.

If you are trying to learn audio programming and DSP from scratch (like, *really* from scratch), these notes might be the place to start:

They were lecture notes for a student-led 1-credit audio programming course that I taught in the spring this year, but it's now a course for everyone. Some sections are still in revision, but the main contents are mostly complete.

It's probably more low level and UNIX-centric than most of the audio programming tutorials you can find, so don't expect to learn how to make an audio plugin using JUCE or how to make fancy GUIs etc. But maybe this can be a good thing.

1. you need to know basic C and UNIX shell utilities
2. it contains math, but at most calculus level

Quick question about using GNU #Guix on a foreign distro: Can programs installed with it use (proprietary) drivers already installed on the system?

I tried running vlc from Guix with the vdpau output, but that led to a lot of errors about a missing file. The flatpak version of vlc works with the vdpau output.

Met a few friends the other night over dinner and we spent majority of the evening talking about health issues, doctors and medical expenses. Life as an adult sure is fun. This is what you got to look forward to, kids.

my kid was helping me test the game and he mentioned he wanted to help out with it by adding tile variants that were colorblind friendly! I think they turned out pretty nice looking but I'm not #colorblind. if you are or knows someone who is: feedback welcome.

I still marked it as a Beta, so tester's wanted!

Does anyone use/or know about a good whiteboard app for Linux? In Win10 I used the integrated Whiteboard function, and I would like to find something useful like that for :manjaro:.

Mainly because right now I'm using the one that comes with the school platform and its super limited and laggy
