Something y'all might consider is stocking up on surgical masks or the equivalent before Amazon, etc., runs out of them.

Goggles are also a really good idea but they look kind of weird. ;-)

Bahahahaha. There's my genuine LOL of the day. I see why you've been with her so long. You're both equally nuts -- as am I. I love it.

And now I understand how she puts up with you. She doesn't have to. :-)

Why Nazi atrocities against gay men must never be forgotten

Rudolf Brazda died in 2011 at the age of 98. He was a gay man born in what is now eastern Germany. There was nothing exceptional about his death, but he was the last known LGBT+ survivor of the Nazi concentration camps.

Is there any reason why the get involved page at

is not linked to the helper site at!/progornoprog/infra/learn

This would make it easier for people to decide if and how they can contribute to projects ?

I will do a follow up post to this, as this question, has been prompted by issues trying to figure out which Debian desktop choice should be downloaded.

Hi Paul, the "What can I do for LibreOffice" website was developed by volunteers as an extra way to get involved, on top of the main "Get Involved" page that you linked to. Perhaps we should consolidate them into a single page, when we have the time – any help would be appreciated! 🙂 👍

I think just having a link between them would be good, it would make it easier to find both sites. one of the issues peopple have trying to help is trying to find out how to, and what is needed.

Just because I'm a glutton for punishment I'm experimenting with using the @PINE64 Pinebook Pro throttled to 408MHz setting. Surprised how snappy some things are (TeXmaker) and how glacial others are (LibreCalc). Kinda #

So, there's a question. What's the fastest clock speed consistent with # ? I think my first guess is 233MHz, the StrongARM-powered version of the RISC PC from Acorn, around 1996.

"The 233MHz StrongARM gave a performance improvement over the 30MHz ARM610 of more than 800%."

Just found this on the bbc website

What can you use instead of Google and Facebook?

Has some interesting suggestions, not much in the way of suggestions for the fediverse, but at least it gets people talking about the topic.

This is 2020. why is this still happening? Time for the corporates to grow up and treat the people, who generate the profits, for your over inflated salaries, to be paid properly.

As a person coming from a # background, information about # and # often feels alienating. Some things I'd really like to see:

1) # web pages (re: structure and language).

2) Reasonable # (re: hardware, OS's, firmware, etc.) -- NOT the same as conflicting compromises (i.e. Google).

3) # information -- e.g. freedom to revise code is irrelevant to most people, rather it's a matter of transparency.

4) # behavior -- i.e. not a boys' club.

An Instagram live by # has been saved temporarily at the # profile . She talks about doing the emotional scenes, not having watched her own parts, the first table read and self doubts

PS the 408MHz Pinebook Pro idea came because the standard "OnDemand" CPU throttler's lag was causing insane lag in LibreOffice Calc and Writer. After fixing it by using "Interactive" I figured let's see how things go when always at 408MHz.

Hey, I didn't realize you have a pinebook. What do you think? I've looked at them but am worried the arm processor is going to mean I have to compile a lot of stuff from source that right now apt-get handles.

Bring our railway into public ownership now!

If you’ve ever taken a train in the # , you know that rail # has failed - leaving you with rip off fares and shoddy services.

Now the private rail companies are failing one after another. This is our chance to take back our railway!
