For my Linux needs, Slackware still does a masterful job!

Is there an open source POS (point of sale) system out there? Last time I set one up, there was something called LIME POS (or something like that) but it seems to not be around any more.

Use case: looking to set up a POS for an anarchist infoshop.

"Lawmakers argued the legislation was necessary to protect the revenues of US entertainment industry, and bring US law into line with European law — but it was really about protecting Mickey Mouse. The first Mickey Mouse cartoons were released in 1928, and the new rules extended Disney’s control of the copyright until at least 2023."

Anybody in my sphere of Mastodon have experience with a lunar-based calendar ? How is a year defined in such a system? Do you feel there are advantages to a lunar cal?

The other day I wanted to share a video.

YouTube wanted me to login, give them my real name, provide an email address (wouldn't take a throwaway for an answer) and a phone number to text me (I don't have a phone).

I went to a #Peertube instance instead. They accepted my throwaway email address and my video. Didn't ask for personal information. And the upload and video playback worked great.

True story.

So, thank you @Chocobozzz and everyone else who worked on Peertube.
