This cake is shaped in a Hilbert curve to optimize for having more crust (the best part imo)! From @firstname.lastname@example.org https://mpetroff.net/2019/04/hilbert-curve-cake/
We have a lot of our own code, and big goals, but any amount of help is appreciated!

How good is this picture?

Time between submitting a small improvement (https://github.com/NixOS/nixpkgs/pull/72239) and seeing it on the nixos-unstable branch: about 3 days. Pretty happy so far!
Calling out to the Mastodon community again: famous @fdroidorg Repomaker is looking for a new maintainer (and contributors). Should be familiar with F-Droid, Python, Django.
Please help keeping it alive!
Volunteers go to https://gitlab.com/fdroid/repomaker/issues/234 – others please boost, as usual 😉 Thanks!
What is the decentralized alternative to events (e.g. facebook events or meetup.com)? https://gettogether.community looks cool but still centralized.
Something something iCalendar / caldav?
My main motivation would be a shorter feedback cycle between making a contribution and seeing it generally available.
The way ad-hoc builds need some packaging work is unusual (https://nixos.wiki/wiki/Development_environment_with_nix-shell), but might also make it easier to share setups. Curious to see how this works out in practice!
Tried it for a while, but it didn't stick.
I'm not a fan of the "we refuse to create a nice installer because typing in commands yourself will be an educational experience" attitude.
The tooling for contributing to AUR seemed clunky: weird use of git (because of some compatibility with svn it appears), and AFAICS no structured way to have shared maintainership of packages.
I like how transparent google is about what they've been collecting about your purchases online - check out https://myaccount.google.com/purchases !
accessing scientific papers
if anyone is wondering about accessing paywalled papers and books, I'd recommend two sites:
libgen: (gen.lib.rus.ec and other mirrors which you can google)
this is good for books, they also have papers but there's a much easier way of going about shit
sci-hub: (sci-hub.tw and mirrors), basically with this one you copy the URL of a paper online you wanna access, type http://sci-hub.tw/ [url] and it'll work.
this works for like 95% of papers.
I also have access to my university's library, so if anyone wants to find something that falls through the cracks, I can find prolly 3.5% of that remaining 5% that way.
