So NVIDIA "released" their kernel driver as open source.

By which they mean, they moved most of it to firmware and made the open source driver call into it. There are almost 900 functions implemented in the 34MB firmware, give or take, from what I can see.

Broadcom vibes...

A few years ago I made this flow chart of which Mastodon posts end up in which timelines!

So, you can see how each instance will have a different local timeline, and even a slightly different federated timeline - and you can see why the federated timeline moves so much faster than the local one, too.

This is why it's important to boost good posts and use hashtags - the fediverse is fragmented and harder to search by nature.

Why GPL? "Using the GNU GPL will require that all the released improved versions be free software. This means you can avoid the risk of having to compete with a proprietary modified version of your own work." More at u.fsf.org/3kr

Drew explicitly doesn't mention his own project/company, so I will:

For $20 a YEAR, you can be an 'Amateur Hacker' level supporter of his FULLY FLOSS platform.
If you believe in 'voting with your wallet', that's an excellent way to support and promote FLOSS alternatives.

There are also other plans for $50 or $100 although it currently doesn't provide extra features.
See sourcehut.org/pricing/ for details

"Feedback for me" link to changeset discussion is the least the client can be upgraded with.


Also, when writing readme, it may help writing it for yourself. So it could be interesting to ask questions like:

- Not gonna to read this, how could I write it shorter?

- Not gonna understand it tomorrow, WHAT's the point?

- This sounds stupid, WHY is that?

- I will do this all the time, but HOW?

- I have a question/bug -- WHERE/WHO to report?

I'm not completely fan of, but worth reading:

Readme Driven Development

Please, do

git commit -m'Add license, readme'

instead of

git commit -m'Initial commit'

I'll take quality over quantity. Sure, AI outputs for might beat humans to it (wrt quantity), but seriously, human intervention is still required: e.g. numerous crappy outputs needed to be sifted before saying yes to the automated process

How could I advocate 162 MB of a web page?


Check if your new GeoJSON overlaps with any area already published on Tasking Manager.

I couldn't fall asleep last night. So I dug into another problem of the project -- intersecting areas. Finished today afternoon.

10... no, 100 times this. XMPP and IRC are very good communication protocols, there's no need to replace them with something "modern"

Universal Audio's official forum account said they would add Linux support if "tens of thousands" of people signed a petition.

Here is that petition!

And here is the forum post
