What alternative to raspberry pi do you use, that is more open (hardware-wise) ?

Watching the opening episode of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 3 with my mom and little brother almost launched the whole family into a theology debate.

Family over for dinner. My little brother is still an amazingly picky eater. Basically putting together a plain veggie-beef-crumbles pizza together, with no other toppings save for the mozzarella; in the hopes we could all eat off the same pie.

2 people are currently working on an #opensource federated #reddit alternative, called #lemmy.
They need some open source #developers to help them enable the federating function.. #activitypub

BOOST to help development...

Are there any popular libre settings out there that you know of?

(By libre settings I mean RPG game worlds with either a creative commons license, a GPL license or MIT or public domain. In the reality meaning that the community is free to do whatever they want with it and build upon it)

#rpg #roleplay #boardgames #tabletop #creativecommons #libreculture #opensource #DnD

Allegedly #Microsoft loves Open Source now. So the #FSF wants them to release #Windows7 under a FOSS license after support for this release has ended.

I love how the SBC community has pretty much just accepted that the standard way of writing images to microSD cards is an Electron app that's a ~60MB download.

Also, it's no longer just Etcher, it's "balena Etcher" :blobrollingeyes:

Got my mom and little brother dropping in for dinner tonight. Got the second pizza crust in the breadmaker. 🎶

Finished Star Wars: Aftermath. Enjoyed it. It had perhaps too many points of view that took too long to coalesce for my taste, but once it did the book really clicked. Its got some things the films sorely lack. Like lgbt representation.

Does anyone know any #linux #distro that is in need of #mirroring ?
I do mirror the popular ones already at but I am looking into helping out smaller #distros that does not have the money or capacity to spend on bandwith.

@fdroidorg what is the delay on the new builds of Newpipe?

I wish if the electric company was going to do work on a neighboring apartment, and cut my electricity for 30 minutes. They would knock on my door and tell me first. *sigh*

I'm the weird Arch Linux person, aren't I? It's my primary OS, and literally the second to last distro I'd recommend to anyone. The last is Gentoo. And I used Gentoo for four years.

There is no "right" or "perfect" distro. It's all personal and contextual.

I'd rather people use *any* open source OS. Ubuntu? Arch? Fedora? BSD? Haiku? Does it work for you and make you happy? Sweet. 👍

Used Jitsi meet to help my friend with Dresden Files character creation. He's the last one who needed to be brought up to speed.

First game next week. This one is going to be wholly online via Jitsi Meet. Kinda an excuse to connect people who used to be in a local gaming group.

Kinda cool we can do it with tooling.
