Yeah those Faroe Islanders…
The Faroe islanders that have been COVID free for 3 weeks? The ones that didnt vote for Tory scum? Those ones?
I don’t think I’ll be visiting the US until some things change over there. Very sad.
TerminusDB: Interesting open source time based database for historical data of all kinds, git like features, using RDF / JSON-LD for content and worries (not SPARQL) with many innovative features (originally from Uni of Dublin). Check first two posts:
Cool! We can even boot the latest version of Raspbian from USB on an 8GB Raspberry Pi 4.
Well, not exactly because
Raspbian has been renamed to
Raspberry Pi OS.
Or how to replace a short memorable name with one that is long and generic and also hard to find in Google (but I am not a marketing guy, so who am I to judge this move).
This is the problem with the marketing people. They are not the users of the product and therefore their work is mediocre. Marketing should be in the hands of people who have skin in the game…
Done some researches and now I understand why:
The new 64-bit operating system doesn’t use software from the Raspbian project anymore (but directly from Debian)
The Raspbian project leader explained that he doesn’t want the Raspbian name used for something that doesn’t incorporate code from his project (see https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=66&t=275380&sid=1a468f226394ccddf4654a3d3d90cb7d#p1668466)
Debian couldn’t be used in the name because they also build their own images for the Raspberry Pi
So, they settled for Raspberry Pi OS. Not a sexy name, but there were too many constraints.
A: So, what’s the new name of the Raspberry Pi OS?
B: Raspberry Pi OS
A: Yes, the new name, please?
B: Raspberry Pi OS, the operating system.
A: Yes, the operating system. Used to be called Raspbian. What’s the new name?
B: The Raspberry Pi OS, formerly known as Raspbian.
A: Yes, what is the new name?
B: Why are you shouting? It’s just Raspberry Pi OS!
A: How can you call a bold new step in Raspberry Pi systems development, just an OS?
I wonder what’s up today in Washington.
You’re probably correct. I better try to stay away from Twitter.
DC is fine, been talking to someone from there
Just misinformation to make people worry.
And now the fake story is DC is burning to the ground, the whole city is on fire.
Fake news generated while the city sleeps and not that many to counter the fake claims
From someone in DC whom I am talking to
St. James Church in Washington DC had a small fire set in the basement, but it has already been extinguished. THe Trump kids are trying to play it up much bigger than it was.
No, Twitter is a very good source. Takes time to get used to and to use wisely (still learning ofc).
There are many excellent people to follow on all topics, and you get news faster the than anywhere else. You can engage with anyone. Hardest part is learning how to interact, when to respond or ignore, how to rely, when to block etc
And for the most part you choose what you see by following people you want to listen to, and use the “See latest tweets first” setting rather than “Home”. Every so often Twitter resets that so you have to watch out!
I don’t use any part of it that is algorithm based (suggestions, trending etc).
@draw Here is a site that I have been given that the person says gives local DC news and is not behind a paywall
Or you could try Anonymous :
