"How it all began"

I saw an ad for this CD set at a very low price in a computer magazine. I decided to give it a try, enticed by the low cost and this 'alternative solution to Windows', and in late 1996 I ordered this set.
When it arrived, I was fascinated (having never used a Unix or Unix-like system before) but a bit daunted by the lack of support for the main applications I knew. A few months later, though, I decided to give it another go and from that point, I never looked back. Whether it was Linux, one of the BSDs, or something similar (but Unix or Unix-like), I was not going back to systems like Windows.

My today is probably one of the most significant in my computing life.

This is a photo of the back cover of the "InfoMagic LINUX Developer's Resource CD-ROM" case. The cover lists the contents of the 6-CD set, including distributions like Red Hat 3.0.3 "Picasso", Slackware 3.1, Debian GNU/Linux 1.1.4, and others, with various kernel sources up to version 2.0.12+. It mentions the inclusion of a "QuickStart" installation guide and additional software like X-Free86 Version 3.1.2, with references to online resources. There's also information about the included on-line documentation like "Installation & Getting Started Guide" by Matt Welsh and "Network Administrators Guide", as well as file format details. Contact information for InfoMagic, including telephone, fax, email, and web address, is listed, along with the company's address in Flagstaff, AZ. A barcode is present on the bottom right. The text indicates the product is from 1996, providing a glimpse into the distribution of Linux software in the mid-1990s.

Looking for suggestions for the next stage of my - how best to watch videos and listen to music 📺🎶

At the moment I rely a lot on YouTube - am aware of so is that a good way to find & watch travel vloggers, if so which servers/users?

As for music, I mainly listen to my own MP3s on Apple Music. Which have you found to be good alternatives for iOS/Mac?

»WhatsApp ist der in Deutschland am häufigsten genutzte Messenger-Dienst«. [...,] Als Bundespresseamt überprüfe man regelmäßig, wie man dem verfassungsrechtlich gebotenen Informationsauftrag gerecht werden könne »und das kann eben nur gelingen, wenn wir uns auch an der tatsächlichen Mediennutzung der Bürgerinnen und Bürger orientieren«.

Wenn man dieser Argumentation folgt, lässt sich vieles als legitim rechtfertigen, trotz bestehender ethischer und rechtlicher Bedenken.

Super enjoyed @Unixbigot's talk on controlled DIY devices, and the overview of the voice assistant stack - learned a couple new tools that I wasn't aware of because head down in - so informative! Thanks Chris!

I've been trying out "winapps" to run Office 365 on and it's been working very smoothly. Was pretty easy to set up as well. Definitely recommend trying it out if you need to use Office but don't want to dual boot.


(It works by running Windows in a VM and using Remote Desktop so the apps you run appear in their own window).

Tell me about your favourite learning resources.

My initial goal is more "understand Rust security" rather than "write things in Rust" but I'm not adverse to learning development. It's just that architecture, design choices, ecosystem and community likely matter more to me than "how to write an if statement."

I've got access to the O'Reilly courses so if any of those are great (or terrible) I'd love to know.
