Software Freedom Day - Countdown
Usually they fix these issues pretty quickly however are pretty common but eventually I think I'll test #FreeBSD 13 on #Virtualbox since the guest additions should be available and working again.
I am pretty curious to check if FreeBSD is going to be more responsive than my Debian Minimal Setup.
I also tested it out #OpenBSD but it is too extreme for my skills though... 😔

Content warning: Carta oberta als profes de Kerala
Crec que paga la pena llegir-la. Jo em quedo amb aquesta frase:
“Quina és la solució? Necessitem controlar el programari que usem.”
De Kerala al món, penya! 😀
The rectangle method is the most simple-minded and crudest method of finding the area below the curve. It converges slowly.
The trapezium rule is quite an improvement to the above and each area is approximated by joining up the ordinates at the beginning and end of each discrete interval with a straight line. This converges appreciably faster than the above method.
Finally the most sophisticated of the three is Simpson's rule in which pairs of adjacent strips use a #quadratic #parabola to interpolate between the ordinates. This even better at convergence than the trapezium rule. I've shown a different function here because for the function shown in the first two cases the difference between the approximation and the numerical #approximation is not discernible and the errors are very small.

Wouldn't be nice to have some kind of centralized donations system so everybody could donate easily to all free software useful projects that are already extensively used (or just starting) and in need of funding/resources?

I found a decent alternatives for the (now) unsupported Xfce-Notes it is called #XPAD, it is available in the #Debian repositories and it looks decent integrated with XFCE and Debian / #Devuan. It works quite well hence warmly recommended!

Trading user freedom and security for convenience.
#FreeSoftware gives you the right to share your copy, so if you're not a programmer, you can still benefit from this freedom and fix a bug or insecurity.
