A few folks have asked how they can support the expenses of running the instance. There are not a lot of expenses right now (€10/month) but if you're interested in chipping in, you can now become a "Monthly Supporter"!

I am thinking on implementing ticketing system for my office works.

Currently my team gets tasks from slack chat, email, phone from other teams.

Mine is a 2 member team now, doing all the #devops works. Will expand in some 6 months.

Which #opensource #ticketing system is good for a small team?

Great time to remember that your new #IRC network of choice doesn't have to fall between the #Libera vs #Freenode debate.

In fact, if you represent a project, why not take this opportunity to self-host your own IRC support/development/misc channels? Sounds like a much better way to state your ownership of the project, with much more control as well.

Can you suggest some good free and open source language learning software? I’m feeling like I need to dust off my Portuguese.

Instead of using Calendly to schedule your events and meetings you can switch to the #opensource alternative called #Calendso. It requires #nodejs and #PostgreSQL to get started. Another #selfhost app to try!

The volunteer IRCops, in their quest to wrestle power away from its owner, may win the battle for getting users to move to their new server, but they are doing massive damage to over the long term by manufacturing this "hostile takeover" that was based on lies and provocation.

Here, a leader in IRCv3 development and KiwiIRC client gives up on IRC completely because of this stupid drama:

For me, it's just redoubled my support of but it's a shame.

Regarding the freenode controversy, I had thought the fault was mostly on one side.

But after seeing this post by prawnsalad, I'm not too sure...

May be the 'echo chambers' played a role?

My org is looking for an asciidoc or markdown toolchain consultant. We need templates and tooling that end up with PDF docs. It all needs to be FOSS, usable by people on Linux/Mac/Windows, and backed by git or svn. We're command line, emacs, vim types, but interested in guis too.

For reference, we have a Latex -> PDF repo:

you, a normie: the internet is for having fun and also getting stuff done more efficiently

me, an intellectual: the internet is for taking strong positions on things you largely can't affect as an individual, and inflicting emotional harm upon yourself and others by judging everyone, including yourself, according to impossible standards

@Iutech @phryk @liberachat Indeed, this is a bad move. .chat belongs to Donuts, probably the worst (they signed with MPAA to take down domains with a simple email).

It's even worse now that Donuts was bought by Ethos Capital (the guys who tried to take over .org)
