The latest schematic and layout has been open sourced and released on GitHub. We will release the design files after we start shipping Pocket P.C.
That time a mathematical proof to an unsolved math problem was just casually posted anonymously to 4chan... Mathematicians found it some time later and realized, remarkably, a long outstanding problem in maths had finally been solved...

Outlier looks pretty exciting. At first glance it appears to be something like Masterclass but for STEM, plus it counts as actual college credits for anyone in university. basically it is university level courses taught by famous experts in the field.
Also gets some brownie points from me for highlighting Hannah Fry as one of the instructors. She is awesome and has done a lot of great stuff over the years. I got to talk to a her a few times and she helped me out with some problems I was working on once or twice (not through outlier)... so cool they snatched her up.

BTW, had to dig a bit but looks like it is official, that #Gab has not been on the Fediverse since a change this summer.
Frankly, we won. Note how one key point in their decision here was how isolated they were off the Fediverse compared to costs to keep it going.
From the former Facebook CTO of Gab:
We are launching https://fedisearch.com , a website for doing full text search on fediverse content.
This could be very useful for small instances users that are missing full text searches, just about anyone else who is looking for a blazing fast fediverse search engine.
We have a well behaved indexer that honors users' preference on opting out status indexing.
Please give it a try and let us know what you think.
Happy New Year, I'm trying to the Moew Relay! 🎉
I missed #FollowFriday with new years and everything so let me do that now.
This one is a bit special to me as I feel like the last month or two we have had some really great new members join us. While we have always had a wonderful community it usually takes time to acquire new active members who make this place better, most come and go. But it seems the quality of new members this last month has been really nice to see. Here is my #ff
