Good review. The world really does need a FLOSS mobile OS, and Android isn't it. Until there is a good realistic alternative to Apple/Google we will all be tied to one of these two options.

Two great things about RSS readers:

1) Disconnects you from The Algorithm.

2) No comment thread arblegarble.

What you see isn't moderated by advertiser revenue, platform bias, or user outrage.

Seriously, get yourself one.

Tomorrow, 21st August!

@jumboshrimp starts the stream with his Catch of the Week, another mix of all things electronic. Then onto the greatness of Dance Attack with Ruffy, which as usual is not one to miss.

Get Ready with Andrina returns this week, explaining how to look fabulous over a backdrop of great music, then we finish off with Worky's set from the Rollerstop last night.

Hope you can make it!

How is it that I've been writing shell scripts for over 15 years now to automate processes, and I've only just discovered $SUDO_USER today? I feel like that's a MASSIVE oversight.

We're running our first post lockdown in person event this month - Tue 24th August 2021. In Bar on Kent Road, from 6pm. It's one of our regular Learn command line from scratch events - designed for complete beginners but might appeal to some of the crowd as we're using Bandit, one of the OverTheWire.org wargames to teach with.

More info on our wiki at opensource.glasgow.social/ - there is an optional meetup link too at meetup.com/Open-Source-Glasgow
