Garmin Forerunner 55.
It's the most basic one in the running series, but it works well enough for what I need it to do.
It's the first real "closed ecosystem" device I own, as usually I go the open source route for everything, but Garmin has a good track record and the device has helped me train for a half marathon really well. I put a "casio"-style watch face on it, and I enjoy it a lot.

I'm very aware of this thanks, however for training to run I went for convenience.
I like comparing with my friends in the app and using the training plans etc.
The fit to gpx converter is a good way to extract hiking data though!

The fact that people were registering .ml domains for projects like this is mindboggling. There are many TLDs to pick from without infringing on the terms of use of a country-specific one.

cinaed666,

It's completely valid for them to do so. Their Top Level Domain meant for their purposes.
Even though it's rarely enforced, many TLDs have specific purposes and conditions against abusing it for unrelated purposes.
There are many others to pick from.

This is my car, that I imported from Japan 2 years ago, barely running and in poor shape.
I fixed it up and installed some aftermarket parts (increased the boost pressure, some HKS piggyback electronics to remove the speed limiter and fuel cut in high boost). It came with a Fujitsubo stainless steel exhaust.
I had greddy coilovers for it, and wider wheels ready to install.

Unfortunately, last year I rolled the car on track. It's not unsaveable, and some work has already gone into repair.
It will take some time before it's back on the road, but I'm sure I'll do a victory lap on the track again soon.

I'm so glad there are no dingos or coyotes where I live. I would be convinced I could treat them as dogs and try to pet them.

I used to use this one when I was still mixing live music on analog gear.
I had a linux laptop running with jack2, on the headphone out of my soundcraft desk connected to my usb audio interface, visualing the input. (Which would be the single instrument I had selected or the entire desk output).
I'm sure it would work well for locally playing music as well.

It doesn't look like it has been mentioned here yet: https://www.amazon.com/Skeptics-Guide-Universe-Really-Increasingly/dp/1538760533
This book goes really deep into every different kind of logical fallacy.

Since most comments are focusing on exercises you can do: Diet is a large part of it too.
Things like leafy greens and berries contain a lot of antioxidants and phytochemicals which help combat inflammation.
Nuts and Seeds contain Omega-3 fatty acids which are important for joint health.
Make sure you get enough calcium for general bone health too, and you have all the vitamins and minerals in your diet.

It's very anecdotal, but I used to have ankle problems while running, and minding my diet more has helped a lot. I don't have joint pains after long runs anymore.

https://github.com/obsproject/obs-studio/pull/2868

This is a good example of this kind of evangelism for the hot new packaging standard gone wrong.
A pull request was made for a half-baked appImage version of OBS by appImage creators.
They refused to support it, and the OBS developers refused to merge it because they have no appImage knowledge.
Drama ensued.

I do like how nixOS is tackling this issue, but I don't really care enough to switch away from Arch.

I try to avoid running at the worst times, and just try to keep my current distances and pace, though they have fallen a little.

AlmaLinux gives up being 1:1 RHEL compatible (almalinux.org)

In case you missed it, Red Hat announced they will no longer be providing the means for downstream clones to continue to be 1:1 binary copies of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL). Very quickly, both Jack and I shared some initial thoughts, but we intentionally took our time deciding the next right step for AlmaLinux OS. After much...

cinaed666,

Honestly, I feel the 1:1 compatibility issue is overrated.
We want a stable distro that has ABI compatibility throughout the 5-10year support cycle, I don't really care if it's 1:1 compatible with RHEL.
For the niche or specific usecases where RHEL compatibility is needed, they offer their UBI container.

In the past I did care more about it, because we were using specific Puppet modules and other provisioning tools that were validated against specific RHEL versions, but in the age of containerization it's much less of an issue.

It might be an issue with certain ISO compliance, because we can't just blindly throw a RHEL 8 CIS security benchmark script at a base Alma image anymore and expect everything to work fine. But it's not a dealbreaker in my sector. We can reach compliance by making up our own benchmarks. The sectors that don't have this luxury are probably already on RHEL for different reasons.

With what Rocky tried to do to remain 1:1 compatible with RHEL (Pretty much leaking and stealing the rpm sources) I'll stay with Alma, even if they are no longer "bug compatible".

Tiki Bunny is proud to announce our latest import! The ask was simple: A 4WD Subaru Sambar, 95 or newer with no rust. The idea was to do something crazy like paint it in Subaru racing livery when it arrived in the US.

Welp. How about we just find one done just like that already?

@tikibunnyimports I can't afford one at the moment, but I really need a supercharged Sambar in my life.

@tikibunnyimports

I don't mind a shitbox, but I'm not on your continent. :)
I have imported a car from japan before myself before though, so I can manage, thanks!

@tikibunnyimports It's not easy in the EU either. We can import cars before they are 25 years old, but the tax is high and homologating them is a pain.
Once they are 30 years old, the tax is basically nothing, and they don't need to be homologated as they can be registered as a classic car without all the needed paperwork, so for these cars it's pretty easy. (At least in my country, it differs.)

This has been a longtime coming. Great work to the devs!

I've been on XFCE for well over 15 years, maybe nearly 20.
In the beginning I ran Xubuntu because it was faster than Gnome 2 on my ancient laptop.
Nowadays, I just run it out of habit on top of Arch. I've had my stints on KDE and modern Gnome, but I like how "out of the way" XFCE is.

GSDE looks interesting, but I'm sure it will only appeal to the Elders that have used nextstep and similar UIs.

cinaed666,

I am worried about the impact it will have on clone distros like Alma linux.
The code can still be accessed from a free developer account, but I'm not sure about the implications it will have on the legalities and licences.

Not to revive any lame memes, but have a look at Arch Linux! I've been daily driving it for 10 years. It's way more "updated" than fedora is.

I nuked my 10 year old post and comment history, but haven't been able to pull the trigger on account deletion. Soon, maybe.
