Це візуалізація мого коду, який вписує еліпсоїд у набір точок. Я взяв сто точок, які трохи зміщені від певного еліпсоїда, подав їх у свою програму, і вона розрахувала параметри еліпсоїда. Дані про точки і отриманий еліпсоїд я передав у Blender, щоб переглянути, наскільки вони збігаються. Зелені стрілки їдуть від проекції на еліпсоїді до точки. Обертання - просто для огляду.

I had to get a USB wifi adapter from ThinkPenguin.com, because my goal with this machine is to run *only* free, non-proprietary software on it. That means no Bluetooth unless I get a dongle for that, too.

Summing it up:
* I like Radicale for its simplicity, but it seems to be tailored for small-scale deployments. More, it lacks calendar invite sending capabilities but supports IMAP authentication.
* Baikal offers calendar invite functionalities and seems better suited for larger installations but doesn't support IMAP authentication.
* Nextcloud ticks all the boxes, but I'm in search of providing a dedicated mail system, not a file storage and sharing solution.

Still on the quest to find the most convincing solution...

and it leads in with a quote to remember -

"This dependency existed not because of a deliberate design decisionby the developers of OpenSSH, but because of a kludge added by some Linux distributions to integrate the tool with the operating system’s newfangled orchestration service, systemd."

Enjoy!

@stefano Customers are willing to pay for not having to deal with upgrades.

Sounds sensible for B2B at first, it's just cheaper than paying for the employee time.

It's also short-sighted:

* Most upstream projects provide much shorter support periods, so this involves the distributor backporting security fixes. We've seen this go horribly wrong in the past

* Upgrading can't be avoided forever, and the trouble with it just keeps adding up to a point where it becomes ridiculously expensive to finally do it.

That's an issue beyond , beyond in general, it's more related to " thinking" of the worse kind....

"But scorpion, you promised you wouldn't change the license of the project"

A depiction by José Antonio Fundo shows the timeless tale of the frog and the scorpion. As the frog transports the scorpion across a river, the frog admonishes, "But scorpion, you promised you wouldn't sting me. Now we're both going to drown!" In response, the scorpion, with regret, replies, "Sorry, but it's in my nature, my dear frog..."
Changed the frog's part to "But scorpion, you promised you wouldn't change the license of the project".
