After the fall of the Roman Empire, elephants virtually disappeared from Western Europe.
Since there was no real knowledge of how this animal actually looked, illustrators had to rely on oral and written transmissions to morphologically reconstruct the elephant, thus reinventing an actual existing creature. This tree diagram traces the evolution of the elephant depiction throughout the middle ages up to the age of enlightenment.
Just finished reading Daniel Quinn’s Ishmael, which I started yesterday. Definitely a must read for anyone interested in refining or challenging their worldview.
I’d love to read similar books, please feel free to send me your suggestions!
i prefer Dark Background and Light Text now
apparently pale blue is quite uncommon color for the handles, so i finally bought white ones. even after a year i still remember the dream very clearly.
i finished the blasphemous game this weekend, the world and the story are really interesting, but the art is so amazing that i can't stop thinking about it. it makes me want to go and learn making pixel art. i would play it again right away just to look at the breathtaking sceneries and phenomenal color schemes.
Just putting it out there: if anyone ever wants help - debugging, problem-solving, tutoring, whatever - with the Linux CLI (bash/ksh93, GNU coreutils..., vi, emacs, sed, awk) and/or git, I'll help.
I won't make you feel bad for anything you don't already know. I promise. (Nobody ever should.)
I'll reiterate every once in a while. Boosts appreciated!
Just re-upping this offer: because being comfortable with git is a barrier to entry to many FS/OSS projects, and because I care deeply about lowering those barriers, I will tutor anyone who asks for help with git, and/or connect them with any mentor(s) they might prefer.
I'll do this while I put energy and work into making the tool more approachable, and into making better tools and learning paths.
Boosts gratefully appreciated.
If you wonder why people love to use the CLI on Linux one of the main reasons is piping commands.
The #Fedora magazine just published an article teaching the basics. Maybe you'll enjoy it, give it a try :)
