I believe I first saw this from @cosullivan, but:
"To help some of the newcomers make connections: name 5-8 things that interest you but aren't in your profile, as tags so they are searchable. Then boost this post or repeat its instructions so others know to do the same."

Thanks MS for helping me select a distro that won't corrupt my impressionable and innocent mind.

@acciobooks So imagine you have a 2-dimensional figure in a plane, say it's a lower-case "b"

You can move it anywhere you like on the plane, or even rotate it, but you can't pick it up

So you can turn it so that the long stroke of the "b" is on the bottom and the loop is pointing up rather than to the right

But you can't turn it so that it looks like a "d"

To do that, you'd need to take it out of the plane

Similarly with 3-dimensional figures and hyperspace

have you ever been in a local supermarket in an unfamiliar town

and seen a bargain bin DVD rack

and been convinced all these movies are being procedurally generated as you gaze upon them, having never existed before and never to exist after?

adverts.forEach((x) => {document.querySelector('#'+x.id).remove()});

Criticism is welcome, but remember to give constructive criticism, which includes consideration of how your criticism will affect the other person emotionally. The golden rule applies: how would you feel if you read the message was directed at you? It's hard for someone to constructively make use of criticism if receiving it is an emotional drain.

PSA: don't forget, your instance moderators need you to help by reporting anything that you think might violate the rules!

Reporting something doesn't automatically penalize anyone, so *you* don't need to worry about whether something is really actionable.

That's *our* job as moderators! All *you* need to do is help make sure we don't miss things by reporting them.

Shop, where are you buying DRM-free e-books? I'd like to purchase Stephenson's "The System of the World", but it's defected on Amazon and Cobo, and without any specifications on B&n and ebooks.com. Any suggestions?
