I can sleep well because I have working backups. My laptop could be destroyed, I would not lose any data. Home may burn, same.

If you can't say the same, you should seriously think about doing backups, it's important when your world is digital.

Please, stop telling Markdown is bad because there is no Markdown standard. There is one ! It is and already used by many important actors (Discourse, GitHub, GitLab, Reddit, Qt, StackOverflow, StackExchange, Swift...)

Almost all Markdown parsers and renderers are able to manage its specs

Why text/markdown mime type is not rendered by web browsers ?

It would be so easy to make a web site

"The plain text Internet is coming."

I can't help but think this headline is a bit overblown at this stage, but hey, I'd welcome it!

Let's talk about open source software :flan_cheer:

Feel free to share 3 (or less) cases where you think an open source program is greater than proprietary alternatives.

It would be cool to also share what it's used for if it's not really popular, and also why it's better than the proprietary alternative

@kensanata I don't think the web is for people anymore. It's just for bots creating web pages that other bots look at in order for the first to generate ad revenue.

I've just seen someone that I haven't seen without a mask yet. More than one year I see him almost daily. I'm disappointed, I expected to a more beautiful person 😐
I had certainly idealised him.

Very good night... it hasn't happened for a long time.

I think about Marina Ovsiannikova, this courageous Russian journalist who warns Russian population about war and lies.
Now, she is in jail.

I have no shortwave radio, which model is a good compromise to stay informed in case of emergency?
Not too expensive but I can trust

Okay, something a bit different today:

The internet grew up relatively unrestricted, but now governments are blocking it ever more tightly. Putin blocks Tor, for example.

We perhaps need a "Plan B" for following world events, just in case things go really bad.

I'd like to introduce you to #ShortwaveRadio

Before the internet and satellite, #shortwave #radio used to be the most popular way to follow the whole world's media in real time. Every country had its own transmitter, and the dial was full of place names (see the attached photo).

Most services shut down due to the internet, but some are coming back. The BBC just reactivated its shortwave Ukrainian service, for example.

Shortwave radios are very simple and low power, they need just a couple of AA batteries, some even have handcrank power. A basic model costs about €30 / $30, and lets you pick up broadcasts from around the globe.

I'd suggest getting one and putting it in storage. You never know when it might be useful.

@adele I've looked on the net, and there are some apps which support that eg.:
But I haven't cought why is it convinient to put journals into icalc file? And probably the most of icalc servers don't support it?

I see that there is a type in CalDAV protocol. I think that this could be a good support for blog/capsule entries management.
You use the client of your choice to write a journal entry and then sync it with your server when connected, And your blog or capsule (in or ) could get it through an ics url.
Do you know cool vJournal client or editor and server that enable this feature ?
