Success! After wrangling with radeondrm/EFI issues, I finally managed to get 6.3 running on my old iMac with multiple monitors fully supported (thanks to some manual modeline work with cvt and xrandr)

Update/expansion of my intro last year. I'm now going into fourth year maths rather than theoretical physics, having switched degrees. (That's assuming I pass some exams this week that I deferred due to illness).

I brew beer as a hobby, and code when I have spare time. I enjoy writing science fiction, but I'm a long way away from publishing anything.

I have 111 characters spare so: My favourite equation is \(\int_M \mathrm{d}\omega = \int_{\partial M}\omega\)

A smarthome concept that wasn't absolute hell: the mid-80s Soviet SPHINX project, based on the idea that there would be a central, modular PC and appliances in the house like the TV would connect to it via the LAN. Everything was designed to be easily-expandable or pared-down as needed. It was purely conceptual but the props looked cool as hell.

Amazing start to today. Discovered that I have "Never gonna give you up" on vinyl.

Accidentally melted part of a comb. Starting to think I need to reorganize my desk.

the real problem with discord that makes them truly evil is that they sell their solution as being something that provides self-determination.

when you move your community to discord, you start a what they call a "discord server."

to be clear, there is not really any such thing as a "discord server," this is just marketing terminology for group functionality.

they call it a discord "server" on purpose: they want to communicate the idea that you have full autonomy on your own "discord server," when in reality you are still at the mercy of discord as a service provider. this is truly evil, this goes beyond a lack of transparency to actively lying to potential users. not even Slack does this.

we must build real alternatives to these predatory services.

I miss when the old mg had the same insults under M-x theo.

Ok je me suis mal exprimée : Je cherche des logiciels ou des sites qui, quand vous les avez vus, vous vous êtes dit "Wow ça dépote tellement c'est joli" ou "Oh c'est super mignon ça" :blobaww:

Les interfaces "propres" ça m'intéresse moins :)

@christianp is there any way to disable the automatic subscript/superscript replacement? It makes it nearly impossible to type anything with carats or underscores.
