Nazi leader Herman Goring's philosophy would work well even now:

“.. the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country”.

Exciting to see this popular Organic Chemistry book become an Open Educational Resource. This starts to change the expectation for what a textbook can cost. Love the work OpenStax is doing.

hello my #emacs #orgmode friends, is there a way I can start the clock (which i now manually do with a `C-c C-x C-i`) when I change the state of my task from TODO to IN-PROGRESS?

Just like it automatically clocks me out when I change state to DONE

If you're browsing a very new account, it may appear to be empty even though they have already posted lots of stuff.

This is because most Fediverse servers don't "backfill" new profiles, i.e. if no one followed them at the time a post was made then their post will not be visible from other servers, even if people follow them later. Followers of new users will only see posts made after they follow them, and the oldest posts will remain invisible.

You can see all of a profile's public posts by clicking on the profile's avatar to open it on its home server.

You can also force any post to become visible from your server too by copying the post's public URL and pasting it into the search box on your server.

(If you think this is crazy, and you'd like Mastodon to automatically backfill posts when people follow an account, please give a thumbs up to the issue at github.com/mastodon/mastodon/i so that the developers realise you want this.)
