When you're so heartbroken that you end up learning 5 songs on your neglected and dying guitar.

Not a Coldplay fan, but their song 'Lost' is extremely underrated.

@akash There's a couplet by Mirza Ghalib:

kahūñ kis se maiñ ki kyā hai shab-e-ġham burī balā hai

mujhe kyā burā thā marnā agar ek baar hotā

It means,

Who can I share with my sorrow and my nights of grief,
Death would not have been a problem, were it to happen only once.

@Breakfastisready my first thought was, "that's not possible". But then I remembered something.

@dpreacher I did compare and my findings suggest there's no difference whatsoever.

I have been testing several Linux flavours on my Google Nexus 5 for a while, and have condensed my general thoughts on it in this article, where I also tried to compare it with the more popular "true Linux" smartphones on the market.

Why does DuckDuckGo keep donating to this astroturf group that campaigns against net neutrality on behalf of corporations whose profits are threatened by it:
techfreedom.org/techfreedom-fi

... while also funding multiple orgs that campaign *for* net neutrality?

Do they not know?

More and more schools in Germany chose Matrix. After Schleswig-Holstein and the "HPI Schul-Cloud" now Nordrhein-Westfalen starts to offer a Matrix based messenger to all schools. Yes, it is possible to build digital infrastructure for schools with Free Software and Open Standards.

Expecting different results after repeating the same mistakes over and over again is kinda my thing.

Ok it's been years since I last touched my guitar. And I don't seem to remember the little I thought myself that time.
Anyone knows where to start? Any good YouTube channels maybe?
Like I can't even play the song I used to really good at and my fingers hurt, I feel like like a little bitch. Probably going to give it most of my time today, extremely disappointed.
