We will soon put on the wiki the answers to your question and to the many more we are receiving.

Instead of weapons lists or "no bladed weapons", clerics should be restricted to "weaponry allowed to the poorest of the land". Then we would get lists like clubs, nunchanku, staves, and daggers. The preferred weapons of a given faith says a lot about its connection to the people.

You know, it says, "Powered by , best viewed with JavaScript enabled", but it still looks pretty good in !

Had my first run in with Gutenberg in . Couldn't get an image the way I wanted, huh. Anyhow, figured it didn't affect me, except "disabling the visual editor" doesn't really do anything! So I had to install Classic Editor plugin to turn off *that* visual editor!

Our logo intentionally resembles the FSF logo because we aim to be for silicon what the FSF is for software. We had extensive discussions with Richard Stallman before deciding to create the F-Si.

The F-Si is formally a "Swiss Verein" according to Art. 60-79 of the ZGB (see for legal details and budget checking rules).

The F-Si budget is currently below 10kEur.

@fsi Who is "we", and why does your logo look derived from the FSF? As a foundation, how do we verify your existence? Which country are you established in? Who controls your budget, and what is your budget?

Folks, you don't need to know to use , anymore than you need to know to use .

For the holidays, you could say thank you to some of the people who write free software you use, especially software that isn't hugely popular.

Those of us who write little-known software may go for months without hearing from a user, and it can be a little de-motivating.

Hearing from someone who actually uses one's software gives an energising jolt that can carry one through several weeks of darkness and cold and wet.

Now I can see what the fuss is about!

So much of conflict-based story-telling requires a non-functioning society, hence stories following queues from the far past or far future (where we reset because functioning socieities are a lie [except for now]).

TFW you roll into town needing assistance, but the person is having their own troubles, and you need to help them in exchange, and holy shit, does this land not have a functioning society? You have taken out four bandit gangs in this region alone, and you are still just asking questions! What happens when you proceed to our actually quest?! This doesn't seem sustainable.

There are some thigns I refuse to think about critically. I just don't want to verify.

I believe that if the Earth were hollow at the core, and I feel down there, I would kind slow down and bob around in the core until I came to rest near the center of the planet. For bonus points, I'd probably align along the poles, because that makes sense...

@maiki I have heard of a few cases in which residents of a trailer park (who usually own the trailers, but NOT the land they sit on) were about to have the place sold out from under them, formed a co-op, & got a bank loan to buy out the landlords. If I Were In Charge™ residents would have statutory right of first refusal, & HUD would provide interest-free loans. Ultimately this should extend to other renters, but trailer parks first because those folks are among the most vulnerable.

There are only so many ways to ask someone to show the code:
