@JordiGH Note it's asking about Canada, not Montreal 😋
True to the #lazyprof ethos, I'm going to try https://cocalc.com. It seems pretty reasonable to set up a plan that lets us try it out, and the collaborative latex editor seems OK. TBH I don't really understand "course plans" versus individual subscriptions, but I think it's kind of "pay what you can".
I do know that cocalc is definitely giving back to the free software tools it's based on.
Me, a prof: Oh no, I forgot a meeting with two new grad students, and now I'm at the pub.
Also Me: oh, here are the students, let me buy them a beer as an apology, even though they look more mystified than angry.
Also Me, 8 hours later: Oh, that meeting is on Mondays, not on Fridays.
@JordiGH welcome, citizen.
@sir Or you know, a hard problem.
TIL the French word #partriarcat. Doesn't that basically cry out for a cat-based meme?
@liw I'm thinking real time editing.
I'm making my victims/students in a seminar course scribe in pairs. I'm not sure if I should prescribe a collaboration method, and if so what. Something web based I guess. Overleaf is fancy, but I think taking notes in \LaTeX is probably not ideal for \LaTeX beginners. Also, it's not free for actual collaboration. Some simple text pad?
PS. Too late to tell me this is a terrible idea, it's in the syllabus 😋
@JordiGH Fairy Nuff.
@JordiGH I'm honestly curious, what difference does being in charge of GNU make? I only have to care what RMS thinks when he interjects (sometimes helpfully, sometimes not) in my emacs bug reports.
Or you just mean it's bad for GNU to be associated with RMS? I guess it's sad that I don't value the good health of the GNU project more. I mean, I care, but it's pretty far down my list.
@sir git-annex support would be cool
@joeyh That's almost 2GHC of disk space 😉
@gemlog Huh. "linux-firmware" doesn't seem to exist in Debian. I guess (from the logo) that it's an Ubuntu creation.
@gemlog Huh. Both the linux-firmware* packages I know about are pretty tiny. I guess you must be talking about something else.
