@derek Hey, DT! Have you seen Bedrock Linux (bedrocklinux.org)? What do you think about the idea of meta distribution?

You know, the auto-playing videos feature... I just found out when it is actually useful - NEVER! NOT EVER!

Announcement :clapping:

I've launched a sister site called aus.party

Aus.party is a "Mobilizon" instance - Offers an alternative to Facebook Groups and Facebook Events!

So if you want to run public events or public groups (or migrate away from Facebook). Please consider giving it a look.

This is a "newish" service and will improve over time.

P.S. This instance is connected with deffo.com.au so events will be shared (run by our friends at chinwag)

The Arch experience:

1. Update entire system
2. Reboot with new kernel
3. New updates available!

...and I actually love it for that ๐Ÿค—

Wow! What an influx of new members! It is fantastic! Looks like FB shot itself in the leg, no both legs, no the head!

Hello to all of our (30+) new Neighbours to aus.social.

- Clean up of 'go get' vs 'go install'

- Embedding files into binaries
- Smaller binaries
- Faster linking
- darwin/arm64 support

It's been 11 hours since the release of Go 1.16 and Arch still doesn't have it packaged ๐Ÿคฃ

Starting to question my distro choices...


is probably the best thing that happened in the world of email clients! Loving it! Sorry, , good old friend.

Just occurred to me. When somebody asks me: "Why can't you do it yourself?" My answer should be: "I'm not limited in my ability, I'm limited in my capacity."

I am probably a bit
