The medieval part of my home town Lahore. The old culture is still alive in its evolved form.

I really like the idea of mininalism. Some examples of things I think are minimalist:
- Running (Can do anytime with what you have on you)
- Singing (Can do anytime with what you have on you)
- Writing (Only need paper + pencil)
- Drawing (Only need paper + pencil)
- Stretching, Yoga, Meditation (Can do anytime with what you have on you)
- Permacomputing (Reusing existing, often obsolete hardware with software that cannot be bloated)

A "podcast" behind a paywall is not a podcast.

A "podcast" that only one app can receive is not a podcast.

A "podcast" without a public feed that can be freely pulled into any podcast client or RSS reader is not a damn podcast, don't let people get away with calling it that.

One of the dumbest idea British ever came up with were the steam powered K-Class submarines during World War I. They were so shoddy that the sailors called it suicide club. Most of them never participated in any war and sank or were badly damaged because of malfunction during training or military exercise killing hundreds of sailors.

Today is the 60th anniversary of the first scientific computer installed in #Argentina.
It was a Ferranti Mercury Mark II, serial number 19.
The mainframe got 4KWords of core memory, and was set up in the Calculus Institute, University of Buenos Aires.
Althought it could solve complex math, It was promptly called Clementina, as music synthetizer software was added to its memory. The press was astonished by the My Darling Clementine tune and several other tangos.

I have encountered more image descriptions on Mastodon in 24 hours than I have in Twitter in a couple of years. Seriously. I'm not exaggerating.
As a blind person, this means a lot to me. If you read this and you describe your images, thank you so, so, so much on behalf of all of us. If you don't, now you know you'll be helping random Internet strangers make sense of your posts by typing in a few more words than usual.

I have finished another article for my blog. It's about systemd and the reasons why it is widely hated and considered harmful for the Linux ecosystem.
