I opensourced our zom.bi live streaming server setup today

You can have a look on github.com/zom-bi/zomstream

It's basically nginx-rtmp and a selfmade python player frontend glued together by docker-compose.

Fedora 31 will have some nice improvements for people that are weary of the quite slow dnf/rpm performance, everything will be compressed with zstd level 19 now, rather than xz, resulting in better compression level (less to download) and huuuuuge decompression speed :blobcatmelt:

fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes

Like a 1,6GB archive is decompressed in 1m38s with XZ, and in 7,7s (!!!) with zstd lvl 19

Also RPM 4.5 give some tiny improvements but not that huge ofc

Again and again. 😑️
Early 2000s: Laptop with 2GB of RAM and one CPU core that lets you run a #Linux desktop, dev tools and a local database well.
Late 2010s: Laptop with 16GB of fast RAM, SSD and 8 cores runs into trouble having #Slack and #Starleaf open at the same time.

I love how Mastodon is 100% functional and contains zero trackers.

It's almost as if you don't need trackers to make a functioning site and any trackers on other sites are wholly unnecessary and should be fought against on every possible level...

From the PostgreSQL manual:

"The first century starts at 0001-01-01 00:00:00 AD, although they did not know it at the time. This definition applies to all Gregorian calendar countries. There is no century number 0, you go from -1 century to 1 century. If you disagree with this, please write your complaint to: Pope, Cathedral Saint-Peter of Roma, Vatican."

For those who haven't heard of en_DK before, it's the "European English" (for want of a better description) locale.

It uses Commonwealth English (en_GB) for strings and ISO-14651-1 for collates.
Dates are in YYYY-MM-DD, time is in 24h HH:MM format, Monday is the first day of the week, comma is the decimal separator, currency is euro and standard paper size is A4.

Die tatsächliche Bedeutung von "dezentraler Kommunikation" versteht man, wenn man Laptop und Smartphone 5cm voneinander entfernt liegen hat und die Übertragung von Bildern zwischen beiden einmal über das Internet und entfernte Server und rund um die Welt geht. Wir müssen reden.

@StephanieRose my dad tried this once but he mistook the built-up dust for a worn out felt pad. He had scraped it clean and was gluing a new piece of felt to the roller when my brother came in and asked what the hell he was doing. My family ever since refers to attempting computer maintenance when you don't know what you're doing as "re-felting the mouse"
