While they only average 0.5mm in size, tardigrades harbor an amazing amount of complexity with a brain, digestive system, and even eyes (though they're just two photo-receptor cells).
Here's a great, short video on them! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kux1j1ccsgg
We're now live for our hackfest!

A tease of some final touches on the design for the new Packaging section of the upcoming Help Center redesign for #Solus.
Yes, that is a Learn Solus Packaging section you see. Yes, that video series will be making a return. The dozens of you that asked for it will be happy 😄

It's summertime and you know what that means, it's time to close our curtains, hide from the sun, and have another hackfest! In this hackfest, Bryan continues his work on rewriting ferryd to enable faster syncs, deltas, and indexing. I work on the Help Center redesign!

I'm glad to see Canonical listened to feedback from their community and partners and will work w/ their community to determine the best way forward to supporting the "legacy" software they need.
However, I hope that they take the opportunity to assess better ways to obtain feedback before coming to decisions on future matters that could affect such a wide range of their community. I'm personally doubtful that traditional mailing lists are the most optimal way to do so.
So with all the news about Ubuntu's 32-bit / multilib future deprecation / reduced support, I'd like to remind people that #Solus is happy to provide multilib libs for Steam, WINE, and specific binary compatibility, and we're typically able to do it with such little to no effort.
Just encountered error code 408 with Spotify, it wanting me to change my region away from U.S. and back to Finland. How about no? I explicitly want U.S. so I get all my playlists and suggests in English. Uninstalled Spotify instead. Guess it is time for me to set up an open source audio streaming service on my home server.
