how do we deal with people who have been brainwashed ?

In the REPL, you can type

scheme@(guile-user)> (help car)

and get help about a procedure called "car"

BUT if you wrap the 'car' in quotation marks, like this

scheme@(guile-user)> (help "car")

You get documentation about 3 different procedures that have the fragment "car" in their name

Could you find any hint of this experience in the manual ?

I never did

“Smart Kids Eventually Grow Up” by Valerie Valdes.

A bit about how we became reliant on praise as children which eventually sabotaged us. I’m not sure I’m 100% with this but I think there is good to be found here.

Thank you @zigg

ok, I can't build in an environmenment made with 😐

GEN gen-scmconfig.o
gcc: warning: miei/guile: linker input file unused because linking not done
gcc: error: miei/guile: linker input file not found: No such file or directory
make[1]: *** [Makefile:4366: gen-scmconfig.o] Error 1

Thursday night last was my fortnightly visit to the farm gate with the recycle bins, and I have a lot of very nice photos to show for it: in fact too many to show in just one post.

I went up early to avoid having to do so in the dark and on arriving at the top ridge was met with a brilliant sun, partially hidden behind heavy clouds, creating a very interesting and rapidly changing scene.

#photos #sunsets #clouds #silhouettes

Please, if you have a bot, make it post in unlisted rather than in public. There is so many bots posting in public now that the federated timeline is becoming unusable.
I don’t usually ask that, but can you boost this to spread awareness?

I have Guix on to of my foreign distro (Ubuntu)

I'd like it to build Guile with a patch applied

I don't know where to start as I haven't been dealing with Guix for a long time

say I have some posts in a rss feed

I'd like to read them and write them in CommonMark

Is there any tool that can do that ?

I opened a bug in the Guile bug tracker

I'd appreciate if anyone here would contribute

Non sono molto attiva sul fediverso ma boh ci provo :)
Se mi serve un device (tipo ebook reader) non collegato a internet, su cui voglio solo caricare pdf miei e sottolineare annotare - cosa conviene?
Trovo opzioni carine ma sui 600 euro 😐

I set up a virtuall machine in boxes on my Ubuntu laptop

Can I move it to another Ubuntu PC ?

How ?

comunque non si può andare avanti così. Fa freddo, fa caldo, fa freddo, fa caldo, fa freddo...

la tentazione di fare screenshot delle cacate che mi scrivono i techbros nei gruppi telegram e poi pubblicarle è così forte... mamma mia 😐

naive question: if I use the electron app for Discord (from the Software Center in the Ubuntu desktop), does that expose me to data collection as much as using a browser would ?

Evidence: the less press freedom there is in a country, the less noise there is in the country's #SARSCoV2 daily infection counts. This is statistically significant at the p < 0.05 level.

Interpretation: less press freedom => more faking of "open" governmental data: SARS-CoV-2 counts.

Comments welcome on draft revision (81da1ae): = =

is it true that Ubuntu wastes hw resources and feels sluggish ?

I don't feel like that but maybe I'm wrong ?

@edsu @andrewjbtw I was able to purchase the book secondhand from a shop. And then I read it and it made me really sad and disappointed. "Roads and Bridges" was very good but "Working in Public" I need to write a more thorough review but, in short, Eghbal's choices to ignore all projects that don't use GitHub, and all contribution types other than code commits, and all of the effects of venture capital on the economics of open source,.....

I'd need a software tool to suggest me periodical breaks of exposure to the monitor

hey pals how do i make a good document? what's a good structure for having people contribute to a project like #gotosocial? There's no money in it. (well, I make 3.25 euros per week but I'm willing to share).

I assume there are guidelines and established ways of doing these things?

boosts welcome
