🧠 What we think about
THE Internet Archive has been in a legal battle with some major book publishers for some time now; decide whether the digital loan violates copyright laws. The interesting part is that publishers can’t prove digital lending hurts their sales, and a federal judge is expected to hand down the final verdict on that soon.
On March 20, 1800, Italian scientist Alessandro Volta announced the very first electric battery. The electrical unit of the Volt is named in honor of Volta. He also discovered methane gas.
All good things eventually come to an end. The final chapter in the five-part NixOS tutorial series is here. Hope you enjoyed this series. We plan to create more tutorial series like this in the future. Suggestions are welcome.
The terminal basics series is still ongoing. The last chapter teaches deleting files and folders in the terminal.
