*Ubuntu appears with that as their stated intention*

Same Linux nerds: haha fuckin newbs, get a real Linux OS. got em

The other evening, a friend from Corsica was telling me about planting trees using salvaged World War 2 land mines.

A lot of soil in Corsica is very compacted so, after the war, people would drill a hole into the ground and drop a little explosive into it. The blast would loosen a small patch of ground and also fertilise it β€” the explosives used potassium nitrate, which is great for fruit trees.

So there are orchards in Corsica which were planted with explosives, and I think that's cool. 🍎 πŸ’£

I'm looking for links to:
- projects that have been sunsetted (can be software but doesn't have to be)
- organizations that closed down but still have some sort of web presence
- guidance on sunsetting projects
- guidance on closing down a business or organization

Thanks in advance for your help!

This is definitely my favorite of all the social media platforms. Alt-community abounds on an OG, standards based protocol with zero corporate ownership.

In case anyone here uses Twitter's hotkeys, let me show you what I just found:

github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

You can still use 'j' and 'k' to move down and up, but in order to get that started you need to select a column via number key.

It's a bit different from Twitter or Tweetdeck - I'll have to use it for a while before I decide if I like it or not.
