I am an OpenSuse user. I am running both Linux Leap 15.0 and Thimblewood, this on a Virtual Machine on a Windows 8.1 PC. The Thimblewood is updated almost daily. Keep up the good work!

I used to run OpenSUSE Leap 42.3 on my two Linux hosts running BOINC. I found an invitation to update one and found I had installed Tumbleweed, a development version which would not run BOINC. I went back on the other box and found that the new stable version was Leap 15.0. I installed it on my HP laptop and BOINC works. Any relationship to SLES 15.0?
Arecibo has been giving data to the BOINC project SETI@home, with one million users, of which 300000 are active. It has been joined by the 100 meters Green Bank radio telescope in West Virginia under the sponsorship of Breakthrough Listen funded by Yuri Milner, and shall be joined by the Parkes Radiotelescope in Australia.Long live Arecibo!
The TI99/4A had been chosen by the Istituto Tecnologie Didattiche del National Research Council to introduce primary school children to programming in BASIC and especially LOGO. An Italian version of TI LOGO was created by Giovanni Lariccia with its Manual. Mondadori Publishing House printed an Italian version of Horacio C.Reggini "Alas para la mente" and "Artificial Intelligence An Introductory course" by the University of Edinburgh Press.Franco Muzzio Editore . published "A scuola con il Texas Instruments TI99/4A" by Sergio Borsani. Then Texas Instruments retired the machine and the whole project, presented by Milan State University professor Gianni degli Antoni, fell flat.
I have used the TI99/4A to introduce my kids, male and female, to programming but they used it mostly to play games, some of which I still have. I used it to simulate a moon landing.
