Would any free and open source software developers here be interested in a free "basics of Rust" online training course? Something like a four hour session on a Saturday or Sunday, or two sessions of two hours, one on Saturday and one the next day.

I do paid training on this, and this would be a way for me to help the FOSS development community, and also get practice, and a bit of advertising.

Respond if you'd join. Boosts welcome.

My wife needed me to explain the Swedish pension system after we moved and started working here. Good that I'm an expert and also extremely pedagogical.

Take a peek at an interesting Fedora-based project!

@mattdm We're building an RPM-OSTree distro designed for regular users and creators. We have a few things that we're doing (I'll put these in this thread)

Libera is a year old. Thanks for supporting us, because it's been a pleasure supporting you.


@liw I see Ick is on ice, but I'm still curious about something. I've been tempted to pick up earthly.dev or dagger.io at work due for the "CI you can also conveniently run local tests with" feature.

Is this something you had as a goal for Ick as well?

Upgraded to 36 and found that weirdly my startup time (same home-compiled build of 28.1) has been cut from ca 0.8 seconds to ca 0.2 seconds. What happened there? I don't know but I'll take it.

@loke I don't much like HTML in my e-mail so I guess I'm happy to not have it in my fediverse feed either

Virkning kan jag toota om för att tjäna internetpoäng!

Handy that I kept my two old Twitter account around as placeholders for the last decade or so, so that I could demonstratively delete them now instead.

Found a from the Amanda Christensen shop at a second hand this weekend. Here suitably worn with a Christensen .

TIL the first high level programming language (kinda) already used the best programming language name: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plankalk

Productivity/mental health/technology addiction/whatever idea for Fediverse clients: A way to read the timeline where as you scroll past a toot it marks it as "read" and hides it so that you're discouraged to reflexively keep revisiting the timeline where there's no new content. A bit like how most RSS readers work?
Also: The usual things like setting time limits per day/time limits per session with a break period, hours of the day not to show the timeline at all, etc etc.

If you don't know about you need to check him out. A couple of links to demonstrate a little bit of his breadth:

news! Changed the proportional fonts on my desktop to Charis for serif and Andika for sans-serif. Seen here in so that you can see it together with my monospace font (slab serif variant of Iosevka) as well.

Charis and Andika are both from : software.sil.org/fonts/

Nostalgia, my tiny app for easily setting historic GNOME default wallpapers, has been ported to GTK4 and Libadwaita thanks to @maximiliano.
