I'm Ege. An #activist in Don Quixote #Bicycle Collective living in #istanbul. Interested in #digitalfreedom, #linux, #freesoftware, #mediafreedom, #anarchism...

I was looking around for free (as in freedom) social networks and I'm happy to see #mastodon 😃

Now planning to make the (probably) first #Turkish mastodon :-)

with the reflections of the sdf user hisacro, i have arrived at the conclusion that ferahfeza chronicles should start to lay a foundation on turkish classical music theory.

in this regard, i will be reading one of the most valuable books on the subject: "makam: modal practice in turkish art music" by karl l. signell. you should definitely attend to this episode of ferahfeza chronicles. please boost this toot!

Libreboot laptop prices reduced on - E.g. X200 was £298, now £228.

I have a large stock surplus, and things are returning to pre-pandemic normal in the UK. It is viable for me to operate at reduced prices, like in 2017/2018.

Also: I'm on course to getting a new Libreboot release out, ETA early to mid October. My purpose is to polish the current 20210522 release (released on 22 May 2021).

I plan another release in November/December. Coreboot 4.15 comes out in ~November.

Fun with my this morning! He came for the long , excited to explore the trails. My dad rode a blue 5-speed 1969 while I rode the folding green 3-speed 1981 . We took the CCT to , saw the Back to the Future on the National Mall, and continued to Gravelly Point via the Mt. Vernon Trail and the Memorial Bridge. We then returned north to the Cemetery stop to take the subway back to .

maybe a bulletin board, again in university's mathematics department buildings.

people post proofs they write in the board, others post commentaries, correct mistakes, point out different proofs to the same proposition, etc. actually, the interaction seems endless to me.

Show thread

a proof box. like a mail box in shape, but you put proofs you write. you typeset it in tex, print it, properly fold it and put in there.

people will put their proofs collectively, read others'.

the proof box will be set up in an appropriate place in the university's mathematics department buildings.

i have nice ideas jumping in my head, i'll be posting soon.
