Developer blogs and Google+, at their peak, replaced magazine reading for me, as I was getting a lot of FOSS news first hand, and monthly magazines felt like old news. Now all that seems to have changed, and in the last year or so, I'm now finding that magazines like #linux format are primarily providing that information again. Anyone else noticed this?
Seeed Studios is selling it a Raspberry Pi Hat with a RISC-V microprocessor. This board is essentially a breakout board for the Sipeed M1 chip.
If you suffer from slow `ls` in #linux when listing a lot of files, consider changing the colourisation used by the `ls` command.
A folder with 100,000 files takes 18seconds to list.
BUT after disabling colourisation for setuid/setgid, executable flags, you can reduce this to under 1second :
time ls --color=always
Author says "I'm stupid but not stupid,I'm chained to the system". You don't have to be part of that system.
"I am stupid for buying another one of these computers, but only as stupid as any of us are for...becoming beholden to the system having a big commitment out of which to dig ourselves (actually not very stupid at all). "
