So if I want to do a python GUI on linux, just for personal use, what would y'all recommend? GTK> Tkinter? QT? Or is there something else really good? I don't need a lot, I just want it to be easy, reasonably full featured, and not randomly break in 3 months when I haven't touched it. :/

PSA for parents 

Today at the playground I learned of a gruesome injury that ER staff call "slide leg". When a parent and little kid go down a slide together, and the little kid gets their leg caught on something, the extra momentum from the parent's big body can cause the leg to...well...let's just say today we met a 2 year-old boy with a full leg cast, a victim of "slide leg", and the story sounded indeed quite gruesome.

Kiddo generally only goes down the slide solo, anyway, but now I'll be quite strict about that.

I think there's a great deal to be said in favour of the model of a timesharing system with terminals, but that it works best if (a) the admins are known to, & responsible to the users ; & (b) the terminals are made to be durable & supported for a long time.

Definitely the situation we have now is not like that at all.

My radio show on starts in 30 minutes. It's called "Movement Through Thought", and it's live every Friday from 06:00 to 07:00 UTC (that's Thursday 11:00 PM PDT).

I haven't been listening to as much music as usual over the last week, so I threw together another ~130 BPM set for tonight. I'll be featuring tracks by Grammar Of Movement, Sbles3plex, Scan 7, and Underground Resistance.

Listen at anonradio.net/ .

A lot of people who vote Democrat haven't figured it out yet because they're not paying attention.

I really don't know what we can do to wake them up because they refuse to listen to us.

Have we reached the ultimate stage of absurdity where some people are held responsible for things that happened before they were born, while other people are not held responsible for what they themselves are doing today?

@gemlog @snowdusk_ You need MS Office if you have to collaborate with clients that use MS Office formats. LO compatibility is simply not good enough to ensure that when documents prepared in LO are opened in MS Office they will render correctly. This has always been the case.

@snowdusk_
I'm a bit sad that you never used open/libre office before. It's hard to believe. I've had *every* business IT shop I had as a client using it for many years now.
It's not just 'compatible', it's BETTER!
Try 'Draw' and using connectors - it's fun! :-) Visio is for people with money they need to throw away - same as the ones who use microsoft and apple. Seriously though, I've *never* found a client or fellow human who *needed* ms-office for *anything*. Not once.

Collapse OS now re-implemented in Forth 

Collapse OS is an attempt to implement a simple OS that can run on anything computer-ish in case civilisation collapses

https://collapseos.org/

Originally in assembler, the people around it discovered and then adopted Forth

The discussion around this topic is interesting
