#FreeGish is a libre version of #Gish.

In Gish you control Gish, a blob of tar with the ability to stick, slip, and make itself heavy. Using these abilities Gish must maneuver through a range of settings littered with all sorts of perilous positions. Gish was originally proprietary, but was made open source in 2010. Since then FreeGish has replaced the original art with libre clones.

World Bank Group encourages the use of open source software for all governments


The World Bank Group recommends governments use open technology - open source, open data, open standards and open innovation - to enable open collaboration and inclusive development ecosystems. Stela Mocan, who leads the group’s technology and innovation lab, says this lets governments build future-proof digital infrastructures and service-delivery platforms.

According to Ms Mocan, the World Bank Group is increasingly sharing the source code of the software solutions that it develops. The group started sharing code on GitHub in early 2014. Since then it has published 41 projects, including tools for analysing data on development and urbanisation.

The World Bank Group’s “Open Source Software Working Group” drives the adoption of open source software at the organisation. This includes an open source program office, helps with procedures and policies, provides training, and helps raise awareness and share knowledge.

There are many reasons why it is often better to do things without the
internet:your data plan is expensive, there is limited coverage in the
area, there is an internet outage or shutdown, or even something is
private and should not be online at all. Or even, if you are setting
up a new device, you can easily send all your existing apps over to
the new device. This is why F-Droid has included the “Nearby Tab” for
swapping apps and files without internet. F-Droid v1.7 includes a
major overhaul of the existing functionality, so it should work a lot
better now, especially when using Wi-Fi. Two new “nearby” methods
were added on top of that, to provide effective ways of exchanging
apps between devices.

The first is “hotspot” mode, where one device is acting as a Wi-Fi

Gnu question of the day


The #gnuquestionoftheday is:

Why do we have a tons of non-linear editing systems available on #Gnu & #Linux and just a bunch of image editing applications?

The count:

1. #Openshot
2. #Shotcut
3. #Flowblade
4. #Kdenlive
5. #Pitivi
6. #Kino

And just:

1. #Gimp
2. #Krita
3. #MtPaint ... 😅

Is it easier create a nle rather than an image manipulation software?

As a matter of fact we have also more raw image processors:

1. #ufraw
2. #rawtherapee
3. #lightzone
4. #Darktable

and if we add also photo organizers at the same list:

5. #Shotweel
6. #Fotoxx
7. #Digikam
8. #Hugin
9. #Shotwell

That is pretty weird isn't it? 😁

Distro personal crisys (an open letter to myself... )

And I just realized this long post is for me, because I have to deal with my ideals and I am not really happy to do that, but I am not having fun with Debian recently and I need to solve it.
After ten years of #Debian I see Debian changing in something that I don't recognize or I don't feel comfortable with it. Many years ago Debian was also synonymous of innovations, on every fields, today what happens in Debian is, along to slow, behind the scene, like the Risc-V port but for the Desktop area there is nothing exciting and since the #systemd debate I had the feelings that Debian simply refused to lead in favor on just following the events.

Public Money, Public Code!

Our everyday lives depend on public infrastructure. Roads, bridges,
water supplies, schools, hospitals, etc. enable modern civilization.
Most European countries have a long and successful history of funding
public infrastructure with public money.

Governments are spending vast amounts of money on software,
but they hardly contribute any public digital infrastructure.
All their software and source code is locked away from the public
by proprietary licenses. Even worse, government institutions often
don’t have access to the source code of their own critical
applications. This can change.

Digital transformation heavily relies on a vast base of public digital
infrastructure built and maintained by the free and open source
community. It’s time for governments to join us and start contributing.

#MarbleMarcher is a #fractal speedrunning #game.

In Marble Marcher you play as a shiny marble which must traverse a fractal landscape to reach a flag in the smallest amount of time as possible. These fractal landscapes are very detailed, and are rendered using a very special algorithm tuned specifically for these wild shapes. Be careful, as the landscape can morph and move as you play, which can crush your marble.
