Sorry about this post which I did not intend. I was trying to get a person here in Akademy into my contacts so I could talk to him in Telegram.

What do I like about it? Here at Akademy, it works everywhere. IRC was blocked in the first days, and is best at the desktop; useless for me on my phone, since I don't have a Spanish plan. Only with wifi would it work at all, and for me, IRC is dreadful on the phone.

Of course there is mail for bigger things, but for "where are you?" or "has anyone seen my green jacket in the lunch room?" it is perfect. 

Jeff is right that I would never want to use it where security was a concern.

So sorry that he's gone, but happy that he is now free of this terrible disease. Rest in peace.
 
Well this day took a turn for the worse... Terry Pratchett died today 66 years old. Fitting enough his coat of arms (he was knighted) has the words "Don't Fear the Reaper" on it

Hard work; harder than it should be, but worth it so far. <3
It's been about a month since I gave up waiting and started "making something happen" on 23andme. I have 983 "DNA Relatives" there, and Gedmatch shows me my top 1000 matches. I've messaged all of the 23andme matches, with mixed results. First, only about one-third of the cousins have a name or ...

Really, why?
I've loved the search for genealogy and my family's history since my children were young. I wanted to understand my roots, and why some of the difficulties my family endured happened, and how those events changed all those who were touched by them. I found young orphans, babies born before ...

The secret power under all that gorgeous new pizzaz / Plasma 5
 
Did you know KRunner can do all of this?
Krunner is exactly like that lovely, lovely 80s futuristic Dystopian sci-fi movie with Arnold and Jesse, except that is different in every single way. Now, for those of you who've fiddled with KDE ...
