I personally use and recommend Claws Mail, which I also use for e-mail and RSS/Atom feeds.

Small or private Usenets are cool, I don't get why it does not have much traction? Plain-text, threads, topics... a great social network

If RISC-V would achieve nothing else (but it certainly will), at least it achieved this:

> Under the MIPS Open program, participants will have full access to the most recent versions of the 32-bit and 64-bit MIPS ISA free of charge – with no licensing or royalty fees. Additionally, participants in the MIPS Open program will be licensed under MIPS’ hundreds of existing worldwide patents.


It will be interesting to see how this dynamic plays out.

It's still a rough draft but let me know if you have any feature requests!

Last year, I joined my partner on a work trip to BSDCan. Just for fun. A tutorial partner kind of gave up on me. :flan_laugh: In July, I bought a used x250, installed OpenBSD, and started using it everyday.

Seven months (to the day) later, I became an OpenBSD dev. I just made my first commit. \o/

Not a bad speedrun! :flan_XD: Thanks for the warm welcome and generosity, everyone. :D

There's already a functional chip out for only $8. I'm surprised by how rapidly it's advancing. Here's hoping we'll get a desktop/laptop in only a decade. 🙏


Tell your favourite developer how much you appreciate their work today!

Calling all #Fediverse admins of instances in the #EU. The #CopyrightDirective is coming, we need to show the MEPs how massively the EU Internets will be affected.

We are preparing a list of all EU-based #Pleroma, #Mastodon, #GNUSocial, #Peertube, #Funkwhale, and any other instances.

Please *contact me*. All I need is the domain name, which EU Member State it's located in, and the rough topic of the instance. Approximate user count welcome, but not necessary.

Please help. This is important.

Does anyone use GNU Moe? It seems interesting but the lack of Unicode support is an instant deal-breaker for me.

I'm nauseated from solving so many captchas today, just because I wanted to pay for a bloody e-book, thanks to Kobo's shithouse website that doesn't even run without third-party cookies and scripts.

It won't let you log in at all if you have an uncommon user agent string (say, Midori) with Google's patented unsolvable captcha technology.

Is anyone here well versed in racket/gui? I need some help.

I'm making a family tree (more like a DAG) of programming languages and I really hate Smalltalk for being so influential. It's ruining the graph.

Speaking of which, anyone know of a way to change 's emoji font?

I love the cartoonish and flat emoji fonts Mozilla, Twitter and Microsoft use. The gaudily detailed style popularised by Apple is really jarring and uncanny looking.

@cosullivan How is it? Are you still using it regularly? Would you say it could take the place of a generic mobile IM application (eg WhatsApp)?

Anyone here try (formerly GNU Ring)?
It looks pretty good.

Are FreeBSD and NetBSD the only extant (and direct) clones of 386BSD?
