I just lost a glorious hour to a book of Russian folk tales I found on Project Gutenberg. If you're stuck at home/self-isolating, why not give gutenberg.org a look?

I am currently writing a list of good #FreeSoftware solutions for #remote #working in the @fsfe wiki:
wiki.fsfe.org/Activities/FreeS

I still need to polish the wording but if you already have input for me about what is missing, more sources or any other feedback is very welcome.

Just focus please on software that in particular facilitates remote working not any other usual work-procedures.

If you can , install your own #Jitsi server not to overload public ones.

Step-by-step example (30-60 minutes):

* rent a DEV1-M server on scaleway.com/ with Debian Buster (7,99 Eur/month)
* disable IPv6 (to avoid bugs later)
* reboot (!)
* note public and private IP
* buy a domain (gandi.net,..), and set public IP
* follow github.com/jitsi/jitsi-meet/bl (with NAT)
* reboot and enjoy!!

A single call with two users uses about 10% of CPU.

Almost 100% of e-waste is recyclable, yet barely 20% of the world’s e-waste is collected and delivered to recyclers. Ahead of Global Recycling Day, we are reflecting on the problem of e-waste. It’s time to act and we can start with spreading awareness: frphn.co/lfsnm

#solarpunk and #gardening people, please help me out with something, others, boosts appreciated

I'd like to make a special item on my game Improbable Island that you can only get by planting a tree. As an added bonus I'd like to give another item when the tree's one year old. I plan to require photographic evidence.

Is there a way to indelibly and non-detrimentally mark a young tree, so that people returning in a year can identify and photograph the tree they planted?
