Lenovo's TrackPoint patent just expired: https://patents.google.com/patent/US6115030A/en

If we're lucky, this might mean more "pointing sticks" on laptops. Although I doubt it, as their mainstream popularity has kind of failed already

美国费米国立加速器实验室计算中心宣布 Scientific Linux 项目正式停止。lwn.net/Articles/786422/

Scientific Linux 是由费米试验室、CERN、苏黎世联邦理工学院和德国电子加速器项目联合开发的发行版。其历史和 CentOS 一样悠久,都是 2004 年发起,且都是以 RHEL 重新编译为基础,由社区支持的发行版。虽然动机是满足实验室内部需要,但也是面向最终用户发布的通用发行版,一直是 CentOS 之外另一个显眼的基于 RHEL 的社区发行版。如今随着项目停止, 也标志着一段历史的结束。🕯️ 🕯️

实验室科学计算主任 James Amundson 表示,由于深层地下中微子实验项目(dunescience.org/ )涉及的国际合作,需要和各个实验室和学术机构建立统一的计算环境(* 因此他们认为继续开发 SL 已经没有意义?)。SL 6/7 仍会支持到生命周期结束为止,并感谢所有贡献过项目的参与者。但实验室在未来将部署 CentOS 8 而不是再开发 Scientific Linux 8,并和 CERN 继续合作使其成为一个更好的高能物理计算平台。

accidentally erased the source code to a program i was writing, now running photorec in order to recover all the text files possible.

in the worst case scenario, my boss should have a copy of the source code, but he isn't in the office yet.

Is mastodon now dead in the EU?

Unless it can screen all uploaded content for commercial material surely it won't be compliant with the new EU 'all your internet belong to us' seizure of the internet laws (#article11 and #article13)

或许有朝一日 人们会怀念现在这个还没不完全方便的时代
一个买东西还能掏现金 快递到了手写签字 街上 学校课上还没有检测你一举一动 分析出你的性别年龄 喜怒哀乐的时代吧
真如睡觉关上的房门 它带来安全感 隐秘感 独立感 牺牲点每日开关门的麻烦也也觉得值得…

If we want to push free software to more people, let's push it to the point where it feels like a life style product to other people.

Using free software is fancy and cool (at least to me). Let's find a way to make sure people outside of the free software world understand that 🙂

No longer being that person with the strange UI, but this one person that runs all those fancy tools!

Is there a word to “coffee” as “sober” is to “wine”?

Disabling network access should be a functionality of Android, like what many custom ROMs have already done. Why not? No safety vulnerabilities. No bug triggered. Apps should know what to do without network. fixitalready.eff.org/android/ #FixItAlready
