Laptop Donation Campaign - https://www.tromsite.com/tromlaptop/

By Tio:

This is a donation campaign to help me, Tio, buy a new laptop that will allow me to become more mobile while having all I need to work on TROM and its baby projects. Please see the donation campaign for a detailed explanation and help if you can.

Basically I need to take what is in this photo (except those galaxies):

With all of the shoeboxes full of HDDs and cables:

And put it into this:

Thank you very much if you can help out! 😀

GNOME Evolution

GNOME Evolution (formerly Novell Evolution and Ximian Evolution, prior to Novell’s 2003 acquisition of Ximian) is the official personal information manager for GNOME. It has been an official part of GNOME since Evolution 2.0 was included with the GNOME 2.8 release in September 2004. It combines e-mail, address book, calendar, task list and note-taking features. Its user interface and functionality is similar to Microsoft Outlook. Evolution is free software licensed under the terms of the GNU Lesser General Public License (LGPL).

what thunderbird lacks is an local api or ipc to share its contacts with other applications. Evolution's data server provides this more broadly for gnome applications, much like akonandi does for kde applications.

FIFA World Trade


The current FIFA event shows a few things that should have been obvious anyway:

1. Slavery was not abolished, it was reduced and redefined at best.
2. High level sport is a business, nothing more.
3. Greenwashing is the most popular practice of pretty much all companies and organizations.
4. Not many people care about climate change, slavery, dictatorship regimes, and so forth.
5. The ones in power (from states to organizations like FIFA) care only about profits and lie endlessly.
6. We are fucked, nothing changes. The same trade based society keeps on being in the driving seat, deciding where we go.

Thank you InfinitelyGalactic for the TROMjaro review: Why we NEED new distros! - TROM Jaro Review https://ytb.trom.tf/watch?v=_fUGJdYPpcE

He is one of the few Linux reviewers that takes time to look into distros. So we are more than happy to see this review and the context he puts it into.

Awesome! #tromlive

4 people reshared this

Awesome video! I really like how he used #Tromjaro as a case study to show why we need new linux distros.
This entry was edited (4 weeks ago)
Yup. ANd ofc he did not go through some of the important tweaks that we have done, like I do not know any distro that comes with a VPN, or fixes the XFCE zombie apps, or syncs the theme, icons and fonts across most apps (he did emphasized tho about this). And so forth. In any case, awesome to finally see TROMjaro featured to such a good linux channel. Overall good. Been casually following this channel for many years now, actually one of the first linux ytb channels. The guy seems very nice, calm, and to the point.

Anyway, great to see this.

FHEM

FHEM (TM) is a GPL’d perl server for house automation. It is used to automate some common tasks in the household like switching lamps / shutters / heating / etc. and to log events like temperature / humidity / power consumption.

The program runs as a server, you can control it via web or smartphone frontends, telnet or TCP/IP directly.

In order to use FHEM you’ll need a 24/7 server (NAS, RPi, PC, MacMini, etc) with a perl interpreter and some attached hardware like the CUL-, EnOcean-, Z-Wave-USB-Stick, etc. to access the actors and sensors.

It is pronounced without the h, like in feminine.

OpenSCAD

OpenSCAD is a free software application for creating solid 3D computer-aided design (CAD) objects. It is a script-only based modeller that uses its own description language; parts can be previewed, but cannot be interactively modified by mouse in the 3D view. An OpenSCAD script specifies geometric primitives (such as spheres, boxes, cylinders, etc.) and defines how they are modified and combined (for instance by intersection, difference, envelope combination and Minkowski sums) to render a 3D model. As such, the program does constructive solid geometry (CSG). OpenSCAD is available for Windows, Linux and macOS.

The usual Manjaro system updates. Plus one more change: we set up to check for updates every week instead of every few hours, and to use 6 parallel downloads: That’s all. The rest should work just fine.


Carbon Capture, yet another "green washing" that won't help us at all - https://ytb.trom.tf/watch?v=nJslrTT-Yhc

When the trade based society we live in, makes us all want to trade like insane robots, then you can't fix anything unless you fix society. Period. And these "technological" solutions are a mere scapegoat for the best players of the game, who have no interest in changing the game. After all, they are having lots of fun.

So yeah....no, carbon capture is no more than a scam. #tromlive

Newly added documentary on VideoNeat.com:

The Norwegian Fjords: Life in the Twilight

Norway’s fjords are a little-known wilderness. Billions of herring darken the waters and orcas feast on the banquet. Salmon leap up waterfalls and colourful sea slugs glow in the deep. Diving below the surface, award-winning filmmaker Jan Haft reveals the extraordinary diversity of life hidden within the deep waters. It’s an intimate portrait of a unique landscape – in the dark, icy grip of winter, under the magical glow of the northern lights, and during the long polar nights of the midnight sun.
