Thanks for flying Society of Trolls!

Sorry for the short hiccup on the society. We ran out of disk space.
Disk has been grown.
I'll also check if we're riding latest version and update/restart if necessary.

A light, quick, cheap solution so good, it should be copied the world over:

The fietsvlonder is a “bike platform” that temporarily swaps one car parking space for 10 bicycles. If deemed a success, the curb is permanently adjusted, and the structure is moved to the next location.

Someone recently raised some ruckus over the name of the GIMP application. Here are a few more that might also offend someone:

- bash: violence
- cat: allergies/phobias
- cp: cerebral palsy
- cut: self-harm
- fsck: f-word
- ed: erectile dysfunction
- getfattr: fat-shaming
- grep: sounds a bit like grope
- kill: violence
- killall: mass violence
- touch: should require consent
- true/false: implied binary nature
- yes: implies consent (there's no "no" command)

And that's just /bin.

Ich würde gerne in bash o.ä. Haben:
- checke wie lange das Video1 ist
- checke Uhrzeit
- $ende = 19 Uhr

Wenn das Video noch eine volle Runde vor 19 Uhr laufen kann: dann zeige video1, Sonst: zeige video2

Actually, what you are referring to as 'GNU/Linux' is in fact just 'Linux', because you see you are talking about the kernel, not the whole packaged operating system

A natural swimming pool complete with its own little ecosystem and array of wildlife. Last night we watched swifts swooping down and picking off insects from the surface. Had a lovely swim among the frogs, tadpoles, water boatmen and dragonflies.

Neither the Internet, nor English as a lingua franca, have erased cultural differences.

Both tend to give us the illusion that we're all talking about the same things, but without grounding discussions in the same cultural context. Unstated assumptions abound, unreconciled.

The result: a lot of hostility.

A nice little Mastodon instance. Mild trolling encouraged (keep it local), but not required. Malicious behaviour is not tolerated. Follow Wheaton's law and you'll be fine.
