Package Release: 06/11 calibre 5.21.0 Calibre: an e-book library management application

We bought a hot tub with wifi. It broadcasts a network. The unit seems to have an IP of and the only port I can find open is 12416. I can't find any services on that port, though. Any ideas?

@syscrash I do think we should be trying to change the world, but not by adapting it to ourselves. That's a bad idea. I wouldn't want to live in a world that was too much like me. I think we have to aim rather higher than that.

@syscrash Probably. If you mean a person who is motivated only by his reasoning faculties, such a person doesn't exist. ☺️

@syscrash Although I think that change in the world is often drive by unreasonable people.

@syscrash I don't think this is true. And I think that the 'reasonable man' is a myth and that arguing based on his existence is a logical fallacy.

Package Release: 06/10 gnumeric 1.12.50 Gnumeric: a spreadsheet and a part of the GNOME Desktop

@VikingKong I wouldn't say 'better'. What I found is that if you switch to another service and watch all the good stuff on there, after a couple of years you can go back to the other service. ;-)

@mrgfy I know the donation part was a joke, that's why I thanked you for the offer ;-) and I don't have a problem with bittorrent as a protocol, in fact I rather like it ;-).
I was referring to acquiring a commercial product without purchasing it.

Package Release: 06/09 krita 4.4.5 Krita: a cross-platform application that offers an end-to-end solution for creating digital art files from scratch

@mrgfy Thanks for the offer 😃 , but, in all seriousness, I'm not willing to act immorally just to get something I want.

@syscrash I mean that there's no consistent mathematical progression from one term to the next; that there is just a visual pattern that can't be translated into a mathematical one.

@syscrash Is there (1.) a mathematical pattern or (2.) a conceptual or visual one?

@TooTankhaMooN I think that several Android manufacturers tried out F2FS for one model, but reverted to EXT4 for the next model. It's interesting, and I hope you have a very good experience with it, but I'm not sure that it's ready for prime time yet.

On the other hand I don't really know very much about filesystems beyond what I read, so it's likely that I'm completely wrong. 😀

@10leej @derek 😀
I don't. I only *wish* that I could do completely without a mouse.

@TooTankhaMooN I've read that F2FS is only fast in the short term and that it slows down significantly as fragmentation increases. Has that changed?

@adeepa I don't think there's any obvious ethical or moral principle being violated if someone doesn't just release their findings to the public. Morally, things have more to do with a person's motivations than anything else.

Motivations are not something governments should be trying to legislate and it's well nigh impossible for us to determine the motivations of another person. Only God can do that accurately. Courts struggle with the question of motivations on a daily basis.
