Am I the only person worried about how a lot of open source project enthusiasts are moving their chat communication to Discord instead of actively using IRC?

Johan Bové

Wondering if there are _really_ people out there that are still using Majordomo mailing lists?

Hey iedereen, Ik doe dit jaar mee aan het "Hoofdscheren" event georganiseerd door St. Baldrick's; dat wil zeggen dat op 26 september, mijn hoofdhaar compleet geschoren wordt! Daarvoor heb ik uiteraard beetje steun nodig en met deze actie probeer ik geld te verzamelen voor het ondersteunen van kinder kander onderzoek en meer hulp voor getroffen families. Hier is mijn pagina: https://www.stbaldricks.org/participants/mypage/1073209/2020

I am joining as a shavee in the @StBaldricks ' charity event this year!
This means that on September 26th I will have my head completely shaved. Something I have never done before in my life.

To support me in staying brave and to support families fighting cancer, please visit my campaign page: https://www.stbaldricks.org/participants/mypage/1073209/2020

St. Baldrick is a global organisation that supports multiple childhood cancer projects. Here is the overview of their funding: https://indd.adobe.com/view/109a8f11-8a24-40c1-80ec-369db62e736a

We're live streaming the whole head shaving event by the way!

The personal Internet needs more weirdness.

Started keeping all of my thoughts and ideas in plain text files (in markdown format) and it feels liberating. Syncing everything with Syncthing, it allows me to edit the files on the go using Markor. On the desktop, I'm syncing with both my Surface as well as a Ubuntu VM and it's awesome to have it all under control.

I have thirteen years worth of personal pictures in my Google Drive and I really dislike now how the whole collection is in the hands of a single corporation.

Being a Dad is hard as you need to balance being fun with being a parent. But it is really rewarding when all are well and happy.

Quick Tip for transferring large quantities of files from your Android phone's storage to a PC running Syncthing is to connect the devices using USB Tethering. I reached up to 28MiB/s this way.
