This is an automated system curating news from many sources to remove the click bait titles and unscientific articles. The system cannot be 100% BS proof though, so keep that in mind. All of such sources are constantly changed/edited/removed to keep this entire system relevant and scientific. These articles link to their source websites that can ask for trades such as data collection or attention (ads). To protect yourself from those, we recommend that you to install these two browser extensions: uBlock and Privacy Badger. It is worth mentioning that this section also includes updates from the other sections like: goods/services, movies, courses, documentaries and software.

You think I'm lazy? I'm not! I am working on TROM 2. Was kinda efficient these days ;)- I am still playing around with styles and ideas. But already made some edits and written some stuff. Here's a screenshot - I blurred some parts cause I don't want to give too much :D - for my own sanity. I need to focus on it without divulging too much about it. My idea right now is this: present the world that I know :D. Who am I, how I got to think the way I did, and what I know about the world. It will be heavily based on The Money Game and The Origin of Most Problems books. But ofc, with footage and new stuff, and all that, will be unique. But it can be like 20 hours long :(. In any case. I'm working on it. I'll give you more details as I go along with it. Chat image

A new TROMjaro ISO is out https://www.tromjaro.com/07-07-2020/. Grab it from here https://www.tromjaro.com/install/. Just a few minor improvements + the ability to install flatpaks from our APPS library directly ;). TROMjaro keeps on being a trade-free operating system. No nonsense. No BS. It simply works and we tweaked it so no users would be tracker online, or see ads, or sue trade-based services. You can share unlimited files with anyone, talk (video/audio), convert, edit, watch, whatever you can do o a computer. ALL, Trade-Free! If you appreciate this work, we would appreciate if you can support us financially here https://www.tromsite.com/donate/ - we really need more support.
Tio
A new TROMjaro ISO is ready. Will publish it tomorrow. Not many big changes, but the most important is teh ability to install flatpaks from the web. Thus, form our app library. Now you can install AUR, Flatpaks, and from REPOS. Basically covering almost all Linux packages. Plus Appimages that work by default in TROMjaro. THis way if there is an app for Linux, it should be available on TROMjaro.
Tio
Thanks to Manjaro's team now I can incorporate the installation of flatpaks from TROMjaro's apps library ;). Which is great since it opens up more options for us in terms of what software we can recommend. I will incorporate that into the next TROMjaro ISO. I hope soonish. If I am in the mood today I may release it today ;).
Tio
Added 2 very good source for TROM curated stuff. Aaron recommended them. https://noyb.eu for news and https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCTcr7MRatEPF8uwwVKoGGIg. Aaron is on fire :) - he is so active and adds new stuff to the project. He deals with the trade-free directory too. Not to mention that he created the TROM Curated world into german, with german sources https://www.tromsite.de/werkzeuge/
Tio
had more or less 1-2 days off....ill get back to work tomorrow ;)
Tio
Thank you Michał for the 10 EURO donation! https://www.tromsite.com/donate/
Tio
btw, and probably no surprise, I am building all of the TROM 2 documentary with trade-free software. TROMjaro, Libre Office, Kdenlive, and more. I trade nothing for these. They work great. Very happy! :)
Tio
If you wonder why not any new TROMjaro ISO, is because for one Manjaro didn't push any new update, and second is that TROMjaro is good as it is already. Only a few plans ahead like creating a package for our icon pack, allow installation of flatpaks from our web library, and a few other very minor tweaks. TROMjaro works perfectly fine and the idea was to not add too many changes over time. I think having a stable, working and great OS is our best bet for the long term ;).
Tio
We have enough funds for about 3 and a half months to run TROM. If anyone can support us, please use this link https://www.tromsite.com/donate/. If you want to know what you are supporting, see this video https://www.tromsite.com/videos/#fvp_236,1s - thanks!
Tio
Great tromcast. Thank you Brandon for participating! You can watch the cast here https://www.tromsite.com/videos/#fvp_237,0s and in audio format here https://www.tromsite.com/videos/trom-cast-audio/
Tio
TROM-Cast 50: The Zeitgeist Movement. Live here https://youtu.be/59-HNtuUVL8 and here https://www.facebook.com/tromproject/live/ - in about 10 minutes or so. Some TZM people will also participate. You can ask questions in the chat at tromsite.com/chat. To participate use https://meet.jit.si/zeitgeistmovement - password is "movingforward".
Tio
Thank you Brandon for the 15 EURO donation! https://www.tromsite.com/donate/
Tio
I am video editing stuff for TROM 2 ;) - I'll tell you more details as I go along with the work.
Tio
Brandon from TZM will participate. If anyone else wants to, they are free to join ;)
Tio
So, next TROM-Cast on 1st of July, 6PM Madrid time. We will talk about Zeitgeist. The movement. The documentaries. On top fo that we will discuss some TROM Cudated news ;).
Tio
I've been slacking a bit these days. I got a present from my family. A kayak, Inflatable one. Cheap but great. So I've been going with sasha to explore some places here near by. Sea creatures, islands and stuff. Super cool. Sometimes I feel guilty for such "pleasures", but well...I live my life you know :D. TROM 2 is still the most exciting thing on my list, but these "escapades" haha, are also good to keep me sane and relaxed. I am lucky that my father came as a slave in this town, as random as it can get, and now all of my family migrated here. Now things are much better for us all, so we take advantage of teh nature here (since it's trade-free ;) ). Small town, lots of water, some islands and cliffs. People should live in these environments not the concrete jungles made for trading purposes. Anyways, this week we will do another TROMcast. I am excited since I enjoy doing it from time to time. We will probably discuss some news and documentaries. Maybe we will discuss Zeitgeist. The documentaries. The movement. I will let you all know in 1-2 days ;).
Tio
Scheduled 10 more documentaries/series for VN. Need the links for TROM 2 scrip :P
Tio
Vicky, carrino, thank you very much for the $4 a month patreon contribution. Muchas gracias! :) https://www.tromsite.com/donate/
Tio
I implemented translation for the big farts https://www.tromsite.com/tbf/ - scroll at the bottom if you want to translate. For this tool it is ok to implement translations since it makes sense in any language.
Tio
Not that many updates from me lately.....I am trying to get into the mood of TROM 2 but I am still on my way there :D - I am watching stuff and taking notes but I need more than that. I really want to do another TROMcast next week ;) - with news and stuff. I miss that. Maybe is also that "summer is coming" and this town I live in is getting into holidays mood and I kinda hate that- Many people. Noises and hot weather. Makes me a bit like a snail :D. My "office" (desk) is on teh 1st floor heading to the main road in the town. A busy cafeteria is literally in front of me as I work and beneath too. So.....noises all the time except at night. I will adapt but just saying....I feel like it is getting me some time to truly get into documentary mode. I didnt "announce" anything about TROM 2 yet, in the sense of making a video about it, since I want to have something started before doing it. In any case, my work continues for all projects. I'm still here. Still active. ;) Still in the mood for these kind of things.
Tio
Aaaand I made a new article: Share files Trade-Free https://www.tromjaro.com/share-files-trade-free/ - you see!? So many trade-free ways to share files. Fuck Dropbox or GDrive :D
Tio
I updated th2 "communicate trade-free" article on tromjaro https://www.tromjaro.com/communicate-trade-free/ - 3 new apps. As you can see, there are plenty of ways to communicate with others without trading anything: money, data, attention, etc..
Tio
I removed Tribler from tromjaro's apps. Great tool for decentralized torrents. But damn they pushed their own cryptocurrency there like nuts. Bad incentive. No bueno. Out! There are other alternatives. I am working on an article for tromjaro about "trade-free file sharing". In parallel with my TROM 2 work.
Tio
We make custom icons for all of the trade-free TROMjaro applications that we recommend here https://www.tromjaro.com/apps/ - we made hundreds thanks to Gia and Sofie. Can you help us? It is as easy as sending you the files (icons) and you let your creativity flow and create them in the same flat-washed-out style that we use for our Operating System. All of the Open Source community will benefit from your work. If you want to help please email at [email protected]tromsite.com. Cheers!
Tio
Seems to be working npw. Thanks Alexio for the help ;)
Tio
The curated illustrations do not work properly. Tracking the issue here https://github.com/RSS-Bridge/rss-bridge/issues/1617
Tio
more work on TROM 2 today ;) - I may take an IDGAS tomorrow
Tio
Highly recommend this great article by Aaron I quit Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp – here’s why: https://www.ourminds.online/2020/06/20/i-quit-facebook-instagram-and-whatsapp-heres-why
Tio
Today it was a productive day for TROM 2. Watched a big documentary. Took notes. Wrote a bit.
Tio
I made a front page for TROMland ;) - I hope to release soon and we will make a tromcast about it.
Tio
The latest stream that I did is available here https://www.tromsite.com/videos/#fvp_236,1s ;)
Tio
The stream was very good. The fuckin dust slowing my computer like that.....trust me i am quite clean and neat haha. I vacuum clean every day, even on tables and desks hahaha. But is dustry here and my desk is near the window....anyways. Im happy that was the issue :D - now all works fine.
Tio
Live again here https://youtu.be/4eWbeNvDam8 - I think I know what the issue was....seems to be workiing now!
Tio
I think the NVIDIA fucks things up. I am not in the mood to do it now, but I may try later ;). I got interrupted so many times. In any case.... :))
Tio
fail haha. i may record it tonight and post on tromsite. i may not :D - lets see
Tio
im live now
Tio
Tio: All that I Do!

Livestream about all of the work that I do. In an hour or less.

Streaming here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VZCl4mhZXtE and you can interact with me at tromsite.com/chat.
Tio
added the new logo to tromjaro https://www.tromjaro.com/
Tio
A new TROM Snippet: What is the trade-free directory? https://www.tromsite.com/videos/#fvp_235,0s
Tio
The most interesting is the idea of adding all continents (land mass of earth) into the hand print logo. That logo was originally from an icon pack of logos...not original. Now is a lot more original ;). I will have to replace it on all websites where we put the trade-free logo. Anyways, very happy with the results... finally haha. Chat image
Tio
So I think the logo is DONE :) - see it here https://www.tromsite.com - worked a lot on it. Ye...may seem simple or dk....but had to go through a bunch of styles and such. You can grab the SVG from here https://www.cloud.tromsite.com/s/t9CR79ZfK9KmWy8 ;) Chat image
Tio
bloody logo hahahah....i keep on changing and tweaking....frustrates me :D - i know this is not as important....but i started and i want to finish it....
Tio
Testing a new trom logo :D https://www.tromsite.com - i was never that happy with the original oen since it was not...well...original...it was a font and a handprint that you can find online....now i designed it all manually. plus, the hand, if you look carefully, encompasses all continents united as one ;) - i'll see....maybe ill change it more....i was simply inspired today to do it. probably no livestream today. i cannot schedule things. whenever i feel doing something im doing it. i hate schedules :D - when ill do a livestream ill tell everyone some hours before or so....it will be reposted on tromsite anyways so....
Tio
Likely tomorrow I'll do a livestream. Myself. Me and you. Whoever you are. For hours. Talking about everything that I do. Going through all of the projects I made and what is my involvement with them. My daily routine and so forth. If not tomorrow then the next days for sure. But I will try to do it tomorrow. I don't know the hour because I hate scheduling things. But should be later on in the day (madrid time). I will call it "All that I do". And I will make a followup one "All that I want to do" where I talk about TROM 2 and some of the books I want to write and such.
Tio
I improved a bit our curated news https://www.tromsite.com/tools/news/ - I will improve it more and more. I don't get any help really when it comes to finding new news sources :D - so I have to dig for them myself. Despite very little help or none at all when it comes to our curated tools, I keep on doing them.
Tio
Thank you so much Roma for yet another donation, 100 Euros via paypal https://www.tromsite.com/donate/ - you keep on helping TROM all the time. Thank you so much!
Tio
I will make the trom curated news better the following days - as a side-work thing. TROM 2 is my priority. Today I'm trying the IDGAS Friday again :)) - won't be available much.
Tio
I re-watched Zeitgeist Addendum last night in "preparation" for TROM 2. Just to see how I interpret all of it many years later. And yah. I changed a lot. I will agree with the message there but I find it very incomplete and a bit all over the place and perhaps too "utopian" towards the end. Good job, but I think we need a very different approach. Not "bashing" Zeitgeist at all, is just that looking that Addendum I feel like it is not as "moving" as it was for me many years ago. And this is prob normal. Will watch the last Zeitgeist these days.
Tio
Oh wow I discovered this website https://3pic.github.io/money via our curated Finteresting section https://www.tromsite.com/tools/finteresting/. You can choose what billionaire to be and start buying stuff to see how much stuff you can buy. Insane.
Tio
Fixed a bunch of VideoNeat dead links or messed up pages thanks to our boii Cody who checked all VideoNeat page by page, link by link. A lot of work. Thank youuu Codyy!
Tio
Here's yet another example of why money is not the problem. Trade is. https://www.androidpolice.com/2020/06/07/brave-browser-caught-adding-its-own-referral-codes-to-some-cryptcurrency-trading-sites/ Money is just one way of trading. Cryptocurrencies are as awful as money. Plus, data trade, attention trade, and social credits, are all problematic. This is why TROM's focus is on TRADE and not MONEY.
Tio
I feel much better health-wise. I will take a few days break (at least some)....to do more offline stuff if possible... :P
Tio
Ok so....I worked a bit on our curated tools https://www.tromsite.com/tools/ and i removed from news all of the submissions from the other categories since it made little sense and that section was almost like an accumulation of the other ones....I will work to improve our news section with more diversify sources. In the meantime I added a new thing "FINTERESTING" https://www.tromsite.com/tools/finteresting/ :) - see what's all about :P
Tio
You know, there is a lot of good in the world. Like proper-good, not facebook-or-google-good. But most people only focus on the bad part of the world. We strive, at TROM, to showcase both parts since it is also important to know what's wrong with our society, but lately we focused a lot on the "good" part. Don't be one of those who just complain, do something to highlight the "good" in this world. We created a wonderful Directory of trade-free goods and services and anyone can submit any, in under a minute. Go here https://www.trade-free.org/directory/submit/ and start submitting!

Why is it important?

1. Because pretty much no one gets the trade-free idea and it is so important to get it, as it is the origin of most problems. So, learn more about what is and what is not trade-free by submitting and reviewing goods/services.
2. Because we can showcase to people that there are thousands of trade-free goods/services out there. Suck a duck no-sayers :) !
3. Because we can contact these organizations (the more we know, the better) and tell them about this trade-free idea and TROM. We are already inviting a few to future TROM-Casts and such. So help us find more such organizations.
4. Because you and I and your mother and everyone else, can use these trade-free goods and services and trade less as a result of that.

So. Do it. Instead of reading "bad" news in quantities that are not healthy, spend that time to do a bit of good.
Tio
TROM curated News may not work now - i am cleaning the sources for it today ;)
Sasha
I scheduled social media posts for the next two or so months. If you didn't know, there is a TON of fantastic material on TROMsite :) I scheduled: memes (btw, Tio has made like tens of thousands of memes! :D), promo videos, all of the TROM Voices (except a few that Faceshit didn't let me schedule), Seb's great TROM-Poems, and our TROM-Jaro videos. You can find all of this stuff on here on TROMsite :)
Tio
Now our curated videos page uses our own installation of rss bridge thanks to Alexio, to pull all of the stream! https://www.tromsite.com/tools/videos/ No more youtube API limits and bullshit. I also enabled search for curated videos and news. maybe i'll tweak the design a bit tomorrow and enable it for all curated categories. DK maybe is useful for some...
Tio
I am working on the curated videos page to switch from ytb to rss bridge. you may see it messed up for the next hours....
Tio
Big thanks to Mark who donated 400 Euros that we can use to pay for our server where all of our websites are hosted, for more than half a year! That's just great! We pay around 60 or so Euros a month for our server, so if you want to help us keep our server up and running, you can help donate here https://www.tromsite.com/donate/ - again, thank you Mark!
Tio
you wondering when ill work on TROM 2? i too haha. my excuse is that i felt sick and still do so i cant focus on writing for the script and such....but i will no worries!
Tio
Thanks to Alexio our curated illustrations page is working again https://www.tromsite.com/tools/illustrations/ and with NO Instagram Bullshit API. This one should work from now on ;) - also, Alexio is in charge of a new TROM project ahhaha. Yes a new one. You'll see. A bunch of great online tools for everyone. Thank you Alexio!
Tio
The curated illustrations are still not working....Instagram issue....the ones who made the plugin that we use for it, are trying to fix it....unfortunately idk from where to pull those images other than insta-shit. that's where theses "artists" post their stuff to...
Tio
A new TROMjaro ISO is out https://www.tromjaro.com/releases/ - mainly we tweaked Firefox even more in order for it to be trade-free. We removed a lot of Firefox nonsense. And I seem to feel better ;) - will start watching some documentaries for TROM 2 - to get into the mooood :)
Tio
I don't like not feeling normally-healthy because I just stay around not doing much and I love doing stuff. Feeling a bit better. Hopefully tomorrow I'll be much better and I'll do some work. I am waiting for manjaro to push another update and we may be able to allow people to install flatpaks from tromjaro.com. That's be great cause we lacked that. A while ago I proposed to Manjaro's team to allow applications to be installed from websites directly. Some people were really against but I insisted and with some help from there, then Roma's help, we made it possible. And we implemented it to tromjaro.com. Something unique. Now they are making their own online software center with the same idea in mind :D - well, maybe they got inspired by us....who knows. but is good to see this cause we will be able to use their tools that will probably work better.
Tio
Thank you to everyone who is still donating to TROM! We have enough funds to keep all of the projects alive for 115 more days. Or some 4 months. After that we will have no more funds. If you can please support us here https://www.tromsite.com/donate/ it would be fantastic. Keep in mind the support is for multiple projects: tromsite.com, tromjaro.com, trade-free.org and the directory, ourminds.online, videoneat.com, musikwave.com, TROM Cloud and of course tiotrom.com if you want to support that.
Tio
I still do not feel that well today. I think i got food poisoned. Which sounds a lot worse than it is. I'll see if I can work on some of the projects today. Maybe the documentary!? I'll see :D - also, trom curated news does not work currently. I'll try to fix it in a bit....maybe later...
Tio
felt sick today....didnt do much work on anything.....ill reboot myself for tomorrow :D
Tio
Latest TROM-Cast here https://www.tromsite.com/videos/#fvp_234,4s and audio here https://www.tromsite.com/videos/trom-cast-audio/ - BIG thanks to the Internet Archive for providing such a great trade-free service. Also thanks to Colin for participating. It was a very good cast.

Here's a funny TROMjaro feedback from Matt :)

Torvalds our in Helsinki

Linux Unser,
The You are in the kernel,
Your swap file is open,
Your gnome is coming,
Your Bash-command be done,
As in red hat, so is suse.

Give us our login daily,
And forgive us our undersized memories,
Like we forgive you for your requirements.

And do not lead us to Microsoft,
but deliver us from Microsoft
and deliver us from Bill Gates!

For thine is the net
and the distributions
and the surfaces
and the hard disk
and the stability
Forever and ever!
Root! Enter! Exit! TROM- JARO

A very Big THANKS TO YOU ALL TROM-JARO TEAM… Chat image
Tio
I removed Firefox from tromjaro apps since it is a trade-based app https://www.trade-free.org/directory/rejected/firefox/ - TROMjaro's version of Firefox it is trade-free tho. We keep on making things better for TROMjaro. We learn more and more about this trade-free idea. All of us.
Tio
Tomorrow (3rd of June at 6PM Madrid time), TROM-Cast Live about "sharing". We will discuss the idea of sharing and how it is similar or different from "trade-free". We will also have a guest, Colin Turner, who recently released sharebay.org, a platform where individuals can share without asking for anything in return.

Anyone can participate via video through Jitsi (we will share the link on tromsite.com/live a few minutes before the cast) or via text at [link src="tromsite.com/chat.

See"] you tomorrow! :)
Tio
In the next TROMjaro release we will remove the Firefox "pocket" feature that links to their trade-based service in every Firefox tab...more tweaks to keep Firefox close to being Trade-Free.
Tio
We live in a society where:

1. People are not offered an education (what humans are, how human behavior works, how our society works, and so forth). Humans are thought to obey and respect the rules of the educational system, and that their end goal is a "career".

2. Humans spend most of their lives trading. Jobs and loans, universities and servitude. They, at best, get specialized in selling themselves to the system.

3. Our society of trade only cares about trading. Thus, what people consume (from products to news) is likely produced of a bad quality for the sake of views, currencies, fame, data, and so forth. Humans fill their heads with clickbait misinformation.

4. The ones in power are the same creatures created by the same system, only that they have a lot of power and the only way they think they can solve problems ,is through punishment.

1 + 2 + 3 + 4 = a society of simple minded (perhaps primitive) humans who do not know where the problems are, nor what to do about them. A society of primitive creatures busy with trading. A society of primitive abusers who may think that if you turn off the volume, perhaps the music won't play anymore. It is the perfect mix that will create combustion from time to time, yet no long lasting flames.

What to do? It is hard to say. But as long as people do not understand that the worldwide society we live in is solely based on trades and this insane game of moving shit from one place to another is completely eating their lives, transforming them into primitive creatures, then nothing will change. Understand the main problem, to be able to contemplate solutions. Else...combustion, but no flame. Lots of gagging, but no vomit. Chat image
Tio
We have a new TROMjaro ISO https://www.tromjaro.com/releases/ - is hot and tasty :). Grab it. Also subscribe to get notifications every time we release a new ISO. :) - awesome! I struggled a bit with this one, but is out now. Fresh!
Tio
When SpaceX sends astronauts into space and everyone labels that as an amazing achievement, maybe they should put the news title as: "A PRIVATE COMPANY getting a $7 billion contract to send AMERICAN astronauts into space." Company, money, americans. Not organization, exploration, humans.
Tio
If anyone is familiar with Arch-Linux we would use some help here and there with TROMjjaro. TROMjaro has reached many minds that we could not have with just our¡educational projects and we are actively developing this Operating System that is trade-free. But from times to times we may need some help to fix some bugs or create some packages for our distro. Please, if you have the time and knowledge, let us know https://www.tromsite.com/contact/ - cheers!
Tio
Really nice day yesterday - my day off :). Today I will release a new TROMjaro iso since Manjaro finally pushed the update we were waiting for. Then back to TROM 2. Aaron does a fantastic job with the trade-free directory. I am sooo hapy to see him understanding this concept so well and become a watchdog for what is trade-free and what is not. Also big thanks to Alexio who is always there on TROM Cloud chats helping with a lot of stuff here and there. paying attention to what we do, or have to do. Always there :).
Tio
So, I'll take a day off tomorrow and then I really hope I won't have to focus on anything else but TROM 2. I need to. I have to. I want to.
Tio
So. if you want to stay in touch with what we do, here are your options (automated emails to your email account, or rss feeds):

- https://www.videoneat.com/notifications/ VideoNeat
- https://www.tiotrom.com/notifications/ TioTROM
- https://www.tromjaro.com/notifications/ TROMjaro
- https://www.trade-free.org/directory/notifications/ Trade-Free Directory
- https://www.ourminds.online/notifications/ OurMinds

For TROMsite you can keep an eye on tromsite.com/live where we post daily.
Tio
All notifications implemented! I also moved TROM Newsletter from the company MailChimp to our own thing on tromsite.com/contact. I imported all of the past subcribers and I plan to send a newsletter today later on. To also test the system. Great! Need to go for a walk now haha...
Tio
TioTROM notifications are done https://www.tiotrom.com/notifications/ ! ok, next one!
Tio
Added notifications for OurMinds too https://www.ourminds.online/notifications/ - also accessible from the sidebar. RSS + EMAIL. Simple. Great. Ok, next is tiotrom!
Tio
I will do all of those tomorrow ;). That's basically what I wanted to do before focusing on TROM 2. Dam I say that so many times and all the time something new is on the horizon haha. So lets see....i hope not.
Tio
I have to do it for OurMinds and TioTROM websites too. These should be easy to do. And also replace MailChimp for tromsite with the same thing. But ofc for tormsite i cant automate it...so at best we can send a manual newsletter once in a while....I dont like that since we heave this tromsite live thing...and i post here nonn stop. But at least to replace mailchimp...
Tio
The Notification page for the Trade-Free Directory is done https://www.trade-free.org/directory/notifications/ ! much more difficult to make these pages than anticipated....is easy to fuck things up....like who subscribes where and how. These tiny rules....but is done.
Tio
New Notification page for TROMjaro https://www.tromjaro.com/notifications/ - want to get an email when we release a new ISO? Or when we release a new article? Or a weekly email with the latest apps we add to tromjaro.com/apps? You can do all that from there + subscribe to our RSS.
Tio
Planning to implement the notifications tonight...for all websites....lets see if i can do it. :D And I am still waiting for manjaro to push that update so I can build the next TROMjaro iso. Not many changes and such. But just for the sake of updates mainly.
Tio
I removed the google custom search engine from our curated tools for 3 reasons:

1. It was collecting data and injecting ads into the search results on tromsite.com.
2. I wasn't managing it anymore and I don0t think anyone used it honestly
3. We discovered a great search engine that is not TROM curated but is very functional and I think it makes sense for anyone to use it. See more about it here https://www.trade-free.org/directory/?s=searx - I recommend https://www.trade-free.org/directory/goods-services/search-disroot-org/ - install this addon for Firefox https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/disroot-search/?src=search and start using it. I will explain more about it when we release a new TROMjaro iso since it will be the default search engine on TROMjaro.

If anyone still wants to use the old google curated search engine see https://cse.google.com/cse?cx=008802094222122130605:ramsowydbq4 - all in all, it was not that ok to use it on tromsite.
Tio
I improved a bit the trade-free directory homepage https://www.trade-free.org/directory/ - added "rejected" items to a different page and reviews on teh homepage. anyways. looking good.

TROM-Cast: Trade-Free Directory. On 27th of May at 6PM Madrid time. Shownotes here https://www.cloud.tromsite.com/s/maMDp72WBH9nCKT
Tio
I am again sorry for the unanswered email...I was so busy these days with stuff....I want to finish teh integration of the subscription thing for all websites....then to start TROM 2. Again.....
Tio
And now it is integrated with trom curated sutf here https://www.tromsite.com/tools/goods-services
Tio
We are very happy to release the Trade-Free Directory https://www.trade-free.org/directory/ !

For those who are wondering if there are any trade-free goods/services out there, this is our answer to them. Yes there are, and we are creating a massive directory to showcase them. And we need your help. This website relies on people to submit trade-free goods/services and to review/rate them. We made it all super easy for you. No account needed.

First, glance at the stuff we already added here https://www.trade-free.org/directory/. Then use the submit form to submit new stuff and also underneath each item you can submit your review.

Tomorrow (27th) we will make an entire TROM-Cast about this directory and anyone can participate. 6PM Madrid time at tromsite.com/live or [link src="tromsite.com/chat.

Please"] help us grow this directory!
Tio
So I implemented a Notification system for VideoNeat https://www.videoneat.com/notifications/ - you can subscribe to our RSS feed or via email to get an email whenever we post new stuff to VN, or weekly emails with the latest from VN. Best way to keep'n'touch. Try it! I will implement this to all websites these days. maybe today if I am very efficient ;). I think it is super cool to have it all so automated in this way.
Tio
We will release the trade-free directory today ;) - and today I'll work on the newsletter and notification thing for all websites....sorry TROM 2, just wait a bit. Just a bit, and I'll get back to you! Also, we will deploy a better search engine for tromjaro ;)
Tio
Very cool flamingos. And other birds :). And I didn't work on TROM 2 at all... :( - I worked on something else. I can't contain myself haha. So basically I want to make our websites more easy to "follow" and I am working to integrate a system for them all so anyone cna subscribe via 2 methods: email or rss. Say you want to know when we release a new TROMjaro, you should get an email the moment we release a new ISO. Or, subscribe via RSS to that. Or, say you want to keep up with what we add to videoneat and you want to get an email every week with the latest documentaries or courses we add there. I already tested the system. Seems to work great. It is not as difficult to implement as far as I've seen. I think it may be important now that I will be busy with the documentary. So maybe let's finish implementing that first....then I can focus entirely on the documentary...TROMsite would be the hardest to do like that, or impossible...since we use different methods to add new videos and books and all that....so I'll see. That should probably be the only manual newsletter. The rest will be automatic. Anyways....I hope to do it in just a few days time :P. This is important in my view so....
Tio
taking a break, going to see some flamingos with georgi and sasha :) - we are lucky that here there is a natural reserve (a small one, but cool) - birds and stuff. did you know that flamingos are pink because of what they eat? if they change their diet, they change their color. search it! use https://peekier.com/ - the new trade-free search engine that we will use as default for tromjaro. I am using it now. duckduckgo can suck a duck, because they inject ads into your face. it will be removed from tromjaro. ok, i, later on ill do TROM 2 work. i hope! no more interruptions please! :)
Tio
Ok I think I fixed tromjaro.com.....damn, a few hours spent on restructuring the comment section and integrate all with the website design...no TROM 2 day for now...had to do this.
Tio
The bloody comments plugin for tromjaro, tiotrom, and bigworldsmallsasha got an awful update and added a bunch of crap :D - I will work on fixing it. Already moved tromajro to the default wordpress comment module and I'll do the same for tiotrom. I realized over time that in wordpress it is best to keep it as close to the core wp installation as possible, else with so many plugins the website is slow and difficult to manage.
Tio
I did some extra work on tromjaro (sent Georgi more app icons to do) + tried to fix the illustrations page for our curated tools, since we pull data from instagram (cause we don't find any other place to do so - these 'artists' pu their stuff on insta-shit so...) - anyways, it doesn't work to update with new posts from them. Insta-bs is playing not-very-nice. Alright....focus more on TROM 2. And I'll get back to emails tomorrow ;)
Tio
I am trying to record my voice to see if I can present the documentary. If it doesn't go well, there are a bunch of people with an amazing voice that will record a voice-over for TROM 2 ;). I am going to try and see if I can "host" teh documentary or make it like the previous one with a narration/voice over, without a presenter. In any case, trying...oh I'm using a 65 Euros mic. It seems pretty good. I tested 2 so far. This one seems ok. I don't need any pro mic probably, but the lav mic I have picks up too much noise from the room and outside. This one does excellent in that regards. Chat image
Tio
Day 1 of TROM 2. I am organizing my thoughts about it. I will start going through some "society-changing" websites and materials to get into the "mood". I may take it easy for a few days, thinking about what I'm gonna do and such. I will make a "trailer" (video) about TROM 2 soonish to announce it. Plus 2 livestreams only with myself about: 01. All that I do. and 02. All that I want to do. These will explain my "position", mental state, of what I want to do next and what I've done previously, and will also try to seek for financial help, else in 4 months I'll have 0 money. I will make TROM 2 regardless, but I will try to push a donation campaign for it too, since it is necessary. I wanted to make a donation campaign first, and say if I raise the money I'll make TROM 2, but that's shitty from a "creative" standpoint. I don't want to put a pressure on me or create expectations from people. Look, I will make TROM 2, now it depends how much it will take me to do it and how stress I'll be with very little money while doing it. But I'll do it. Now is different from 2010 when I started the first TROM. Back then I had way less responsibilities: financial or otherwise. Now there are a bunch of projects I manage and I have to take care of myself financially. It is going to be a much tougher challenge. But I'll take it!
Tio
Ok. So. I did some maintenance work on all websites. Fixed some VN links and removed some slight-trackers from some websites. You know, when you use so many plugins and such, there is a chance your website will have AIDS. Trackers. Anyways, all of the websites should be tracker free, which tiny exceptions where we use amara.org to subtitle videos. Next week, on 27th we do a tromcast about the trade-free directory. Aaron does a fantastic job with it. And the others who help out ;). We will release it that day probably. Then, the next tromcast will be about "sharing" and we have Colin as a guest. He is the guy behind https://freeworldcharter.org/en and he is releasing a website where people can share stuff with each other. Then, we may do a tromcast about the zeitgeist movement and one bout the tvp organization (our experience with tvp). BUT, the most exciting news for me is that I can officially say now that I have started the work on the new TROM 2 documentary. I am in the thinking and taking-notes and such phase. I'll keep you all posted. The trains: tromsite, videoneat, tromjaro, trade-free, tiotrom, ourminds, musikwave, and so forth are all working well. I will keep them updated and that's mostly it. Anyways. Exciting! :)
Tio
I am ready to release a new tromjaro iso but i am waiting for manjaro to push a update to fix a bug with the os installer. Else you cant install tormjaro, you can only test it in the live mode. As soon as they do that I'll push an update. Not a big one, but maintenance mostly.
Tio
Alexio is in charge with categorizing the stuff on our trade-free directory. Thank you my friend. He also helps with translating all of our websites in Romanian and tests tromjaro. Very nice guy!
Tio
In other news, MusikWave works... - so basically I want to finish with releasing a new tromjaro iso then fix some VN links, and then I'm done I hope. We will have to schedule some new tromcasts these next days/weeks. I'll let you all know here....
Tio
Today I worked on a new TROMjaro iso. All fine, except one bug that does not allow you to launch the tromjaro installer....so basically you cannot install tromjaro :). I tried to track the bug down and I think it has to do with the manjaro team. I reported it. Let's see....
Tio
Tested these days a virtual keyboard for tormjaro for the tablet mode...I have to figure it out if I work on release a new tromjaro now and then start the documentary phase, or start that adn deal with tormjaro later. probably I'll release a tromjaro these days....
Tio
And musikwave is again not working bcs of youtube....I will have to create yet another API....will see if musikwave is sustainable - I am looking for alternatives to recommend. So far I am testing one that looks super cool but at times it doesn't play some songs because of the same issue with youtube api but they want to change and not rely on that anymore. So...will see.
Tio
I added a few more icons to tromjaro apps - scheduled. And improved the pages for those that were already added ;)
Tio
The "economy" is nothing more than people trading shit. From one to another. And because humans made it so complicated (unnecessary complexity) then we think that this trading is as part of our lives as the fabric of the cosmos is. Too complex to even question it. Too massive to ever change it. Truth is, our "economy" is like a pizza. Pizza is nothing more than a bread dough + cheese/mushrooms and a few other ingredients on top. Basically a sandwich that we put into the oven. We came up with fancy names for this sandwich and we think it is different than a sandwich. But the reality is, the difference is little to non existent. Our economy is a sandwich. But we think it is a pizza. We should stop pretending and start organizing those ingredients in all kinds of ways to create better food. We can do it, is not that complex. We make it look like. We don't need to "reopen" the economy, we need to re-think it. We have more than enough for all of us, yet we still trade for it. So much nonsense. Chat image
Tio
I will stop sharing photos about our trade-free directory here since we may release it very soon :P - for anyone to see and test and get involved with ;)
Tio
So, perhaps the only things i ha to do now is to fix some broken videoneat pages for some documentaries that cody is checking, and release a new tromjaro iso with updates and a few minor bug fixes and additions - the usual ;). Not much.
Tio
I updated the Donation page to better reflect how we use money and how much we have and need. It was difficult the way I did it before with every big donation being split over a 12 months period of time. So, now, to reflect it better see how I did it here https://www.tromsite.com/donate/. I also updated the Liberapay and patreon pages with a new description and such. Basically we run out of money at the end of September :D. So, I will try to get more funds, a never ending mission for me. Let's see. I will make some videos about what I do and what I want to do next- Perhaps some live videos in a week or so. To also try to raise some funds. We are always on a very weak foundation with TROM and now that I am involved in doing so many things, far beyond just writing books, is getting a lot more challenging to find funds to sustain these projects. I also lack motivation to try and raise money. I am too busy doing stuff....anyways, thanks to those 50-60 or so people who keep on still supporting these projects financially! ;)
Tio
I improved a bit the tools page for each category to be look a bit better on tablets and stupidphones. And now that in Spain the covid lockdown is starting to fade away, honestly I miss the quarantine days. It was much quieter. Nicer. Could focus better on working on stuff. Outside was also nicer. Less cars, less noise or whatever else pollution :D.
Tio
I integrated the trade-free directory into tromsite ;) - but the content is not public yet. Now we have 10 curated sections. wow. https://www.tromsite.com/tools/ - so much stuff! My next mission is the redesign and rethink a bit the tromsite donate page. I will try to do that tomorrow. Once done, I may have to fix a few links from videoneat that Cody is checking. Thanks my dude! And maybe release a new tromjaro ISO with a few fixes and improvements. That's mainly it.
Tio
That's how you search on the trade-free directory :P Chat image
Tio
Here's Toyotis' list of TROM books - whet he read, what he didn't. ;) - and the ones marked with "gr" are in Greek. We also have a Greek version of tromsite here https://tromsitegr.hashbase.io/#:HOME. If you want to read all of our books (in English) go here https://www.tromsite.com/books/ . As you can see in the photo, Toyotis also printed the trade-free DeepCards made by Aaron https://www.deepcards.org/. Thanks for sharing this Toyotis! Chat image
Tio
i worked on the trade free directory more toady.....we had to fix something in reagrds to the categorization of the stuff there....maybe im done lets see... :D
Tio
Trade-Free directory: this is how we list the "tags" or "what these organizations" offer - it is simple and efficient Chat image
Tio
today was my IDGAS day. partially. am tired. Aaron adds more stuff to teh directory. I'll go back to work tomorrow and update you all with what im doing as always ;)
Tio
Ill share with you a daily screenshot of the new trade-freee directory. Today, the homepage. As you can see it looks like the main trade-free.org website, despite them being 2 different websites. First you see the Logo, then the important text describing what trade-free means in 2 sentences, then the menu. Simple. Beneath you will see a slider of random goods/services and will be different every time you refresh the page. And beneath them are all of the services nicely sorted alphabetically. These are "tags" or what we call "offers" - what are they offering. Click any to see the list of them ;). And, of course, at teh bottom you can see the language selector. Chat image
Tio
DONE. The trade-free directory is done. At least my part of the work. It looks great in my view. It works great. All is perfecto. For the next days or weeks, close trom people will be able to review it, and add stuff to it. So we make it better prepared to make it public. Hopefully others can get engaged and make it better and better. Aaron is the main guy in charge of it now :). Of course, when we will release it we will make a tromcast all about it! ;) - I will share it first here - likely. Happy.
Tio
tomorrow im prettty sure, 98%, that ill be done with the trade-free directory. after that ill tell you whats next :D
Tio
still working on the trade-free directory ;)
Tio
musikwave works again! :P
Tio
so, i have to finish with this before i start teh documentary. well...you know....a bit more work. thing is, all of this is part of my "work" - no more, no less, than the next trom documentary. so.... Anyways. We will make the directory public very soon.
Tio
ok pweeple. the directory is ready. we only have to create a page to explain what we expect from others to submit - like a small/tiny guide of what we expect from them. anyone will be able to submit "items" in such a simple way that we use it too, to submit. i love it. :). aaron ads lots of services like a crazy man haha. the more we add the better it becomes.
Tio
MusikWave may not work for now....youtube closed my access to teh API that I was using they want me to go though an "audit" - let's see. If I can't restore it then I'll show you other alternatives.
Tio
tired as fuck...ive worked these past 2 days on the trade free directory like nuts. i am dizzy. but we are almost there. basically we have the code model of it, the design. search, tags, layouts, reviews (voting and so forth). i need to take another look at the layout for individual items - i may add 1-2 things there. then the submit new item and to explain a bit what do we expect from the submissions. SORRY for all who have sent me an email and i wasnt able to get back to. I promise i will super soon.
Tio
so....i was like "im done with everything, now lets start the documentary work" - hahaha. joke! almost. so aaron was like "hey, you are busy with teh documentary what if i create the trade free directory that we wanted to do for a while now?". and i was excited. i said YE. but then i also ended up working on it haha. cause i love it. and to my surprise it is almost done. ofc a prototype. but a workable one. will be a very simple website and all. you will see. probably i will work more tomorrow and maybe 1 more day. then thats it. is aaron's thing! ill tell you more about it tomorrow and show you stuff! :P
Tio
Oh Jen thank you so much for the 100 Euros donation! You have helped TROM financially a lot! And you make awesome articles for ourminds like I told you before! :)
Tio
Thank you to those who keep on supporting TROM financially via Patreon and Liberapay and other means. https://www.tromsite.com/donate/ - I will update some info about the financial thing in the next days or weeks, since I would need financial support to make the documentary - meaning to sustain myself while doing it. Thank you Roma-Man :) for donating another 100 Euros via Paypal. And this wonderful message: "For TROM projects, which keep up to bring the greatest services on totally Trade-free basis. And all of that are even during these harsh times that humanity try to overcome. Much, much love! " - this guy donated so much money to TROM and helped with TROMjaro and stuff that I can't thank him enough. Much appreciated Roma. All of it!
Tio
SO on https://www.tromjaro.com/apps/ the categories were sorted randomly and there was a bug where you could not load all apps from each category. The developers of the plugin we use for that tried for weeks to fix it but they could not. However as a fix we sorted them by date now. Maybe is even better that way than randomly. In any case, now everything works fine! Our apps page is great :P
Tio
In a previous post i incorrectly wrote the url of ourminds.online and trade-free.org. So I correct that! Thanks Fra for the heads--up ! :)
Tio
TROMsite transaltion page updated https://www.tromsite.com/translation.html#HOME:HOME - with some 20-30 new videos! New work for the translators! :)
Tio
Oh sorry, one more thing to do: to update the tromsite.com translation page....with the new videos...will do it tonight!
Tio
That's it! I'm done with the stuff I had to do. These days I will take a little break from everything to contemplate about the documentary :D - I am also gonna talk to Aaron who wants to help build that trade-free directory we've been talking about for a while. Sounds great! These trains are up and running: tromjaro.com, tromsite.com, videoneat.com, tiotrom.com, ourminds.com, musikwave.com, trade-free.com. I hope I wont have to deal with them much for the next many months. On VN there is new stuff posted every day for the next 3 or so months. On TROMjaro new stuff posted daily for the next 5-6 months. Musikwave works on its own doesnt need updating. Same is true for trade-free. Tiotrom is just my space, needs no update. OurMinds fortunately is kept active by these other TROM maniacs :). And TROMsite is always active via the curated "world" - but wont post anything new for the coming months, maybe only TROMcast episodes and if these other guys make new videos like Voices, Poems, or Snippets. That's all for now. I will update everyone here ;)
Tio
Ok so finally I added all of the leftover videos from TROM - 3 added to Others https://www.tromsite.com/videos/#other and 11 more to Voices https://www.tromsite.com/videos/#voices - I had that on my list for the past year or so :D - finally it is done!
Tio
Now that I'm done with my massive work for TROMjaro and VideoNeat, I am re-adding older TROM videos to tromsite. Voices + Other. I should be done with that tomorrow when I'll also update the translation page with all the videos. Ready for translation! And that's basically the only thing I have to do before starting the new documentary. Will keep everyone posted here ;)
Tio
Boys and girls, a new TROMjaro ISO https://www.tromjaro.com/releases/ - not a lot of changes. We got rid of some trade-based services and such. Get it from here https://www.tromjaro.com/install/
Tio
TROM L'Estartit https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k-PT6tJGDkY - 1 year ago today, a bunch of people who are close to TROM met for the first time. It was very fun. Interesting discussions, interesting people. Great! We will try to do another such meeting this year and maybe every year. We will invite anyone this time not only close TROM-people ;).
Tio
lots of work on tromjaro today. it seems to be DONE :) - a new iso tomorrow with a few changes ;)
Tio
no tromcast this week ;) - we may do one in 10 or so days
Tio
probably tomorrow ill release a new tromjaro iso ;) - did some stuff today on it. just a few tiny bugs fixed and some changes. very minimal...
Tio
We are forced to use CLoudFlare to protect our websites from spam-bots, so CloudFlare collects anonymous data about visitors. I do not think this is a trade since it is done for security reasons. CloudFlare also keeps tracks of these "visits" and I got bored today a bit (being sleepy and tired) and looked at the stats. And I'm sharing them with you....

These are unique visitors per day - the average, then the maximum in a day and minimum in a day:

- musikwave: 300 (max: 1784, min: 1011)
- tiotrom: 210 (max: 598, min: 309)
- trade-free: 130 (max: 367, min: 118)
- tromjaro: 384 (max: 1481, min: 675)
- tromsite: 700 (max: 1970, min: 948)
- videoneat: 440 (max: 1382, min: 794)

So, apparently a few hundred people use these websites daily. Maybe a few thousands in total. Which is good, and makes no difference to me :P. I am doing the same work as I did before. Such stats are quite irrelevant to me. Anyways, thought to share them with you.
Tio
My work on VideoNeat https://www.videoneat.com/ is DONE for now! Yeeee! For the next 3+ months there will be 1 documentary/movie/course a day posted on videoneat! Mostly courses, some 90 of them. Really awesome stuff there.....lots of episodes each course....an amazing set of educational materials that can keep you busy for the years to come! And I will add more and more in the following months, but for now I am done with VN! My next thing is to release a new TROMjaro iso with mainly updates and a few fixes (very minor). 2-3 days of work probably, or less. And also post some stuff to tromsite.com (some older videos). Then I move to the next big thing!
Tio
Lucy Johnstone - Against Psychiatric Diagnosis https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lAAj201MR9U - a really great interview with Lucy Johnstone who injects some proper science into the so called "mental diseases" that have no basis (or little) in reality. Instead of looking at genes, chemical substances in the brain, or the brain itself, we should look at the environment. Why are people so called "depressed"? Well, look at their life experience (the environment) instead of simplifying it in this pseudoscience way of "biology".
Tio
Here's an interesting project made by Aaron https://www.deepcards.org/ (trade-free) - Deep Cards. Play it with your friends! ;) It can lead to interesting discussions.
Tio
I only have 8 or so courses to schedule. I will do them tomorrow. Then I want to release a new TROMjaro iso witha few fixes and to replace some default apps and such. No big deal. Maybe I'll not schedule more apps to tromjaro for now. I want to achieve a level of "control" with these projects now that i will start the work on the documentary, so maybe I'll dedicate 1 day a week for VN and TROMjaro, to add new stuff to maintain them, so I may leave whatever apps and documentaries I have for these days to test how that would work...on top of this, before I start the documentary work, I need to add a few leftover tromsite voices videos, maybe one to the "others" category, and update the translation page. Not a big deal. And whatever articles I want to make for tromjaro and such, or the video about tromjaro on a tablet, I'll do while working on the documentary. I am really curious to see how I'll deal with such a massive work (and creative) for teh documentary combined with my daily work on vn, tromjaro, tromsite, tromcloud, tiotrom, ourminds (at times), and such. let's see....i hope to find a good balance of all of that.
Tio
TROM-Cast about TVP and RBE is now available on our website https://www.tromsite.com/videos/#fvp_218,2s and in audio format here https://www.tromsite.com/videos/trom-cast-audio/ - it was a great cast I'd say ;)
Tio
Let's discuss about The Venus Project and their Resource Based Economy idea! ;) You can participate to the live discussion at tromsite.com/chat (text or audio/video via Jitsi when we will post that link in the chat). Jitsi does not require any account or app. Works with any browser. Or just watch it live on TheirTube https://youtu.be/D08zlfEGHYk or FacePalm https://www.facebook.com/tromproject/live/ The episode will be posted on https://www.tromsite.com/videos/#cast after the live.
Tio
Today I am fixing an old tromjaro installation - a half of a laptop that i made a tv for my parents from. I'll make a short article about it, to show you that even on really fucked up computers, tromjaro works. So, no time for dealing with VN or anything else. I'll re-watch Future by Design with Sasha tonight https://www.videoneat.com/documentaries/714/future-by-design/ - we want to see how we interpret TVP form that documentary, since in my view is the best about TVP, after many years. I think the last time i watched it was 5-6 years ago. But ofc I watched it several times in total. Tomorrow we talk about TVP/RBE in TROM-Cast. :P
Tio
A, find the shownotes for the cast here https://www.cloud.tromsite.com/s/etkyf59nKDjtner. I love tromcloud :)
Tio
Tomorrow we will do a TROM-Cast about The Venus Project and their idea of a Resource Based Economy. We will look at Jacque's ideas, how realistic they seem, and how is TROM different or alike in that regard.

We encourage anyone who is from TVP to participate if they want to.

To learn more about TVP/RBE we recommend:
TROM Documentary, the Resource Based Economy part https://www.tromsite.com/documentary/#fvp_132,2s and Future by Design Documentary https://www.videoneat.com/documentaries/714/future-by-design/ .


TROM-Cast date:
30th of April, 6PM Madrid time. To participate please keep an eye on tromsite.com/live or get in contact with us at tromsite.com/chat. That's all Chat image
Tio
on 30th we do a tromcast about tvp/rbe ;) - more details tomorrow! :P
Tio
24 more courses to add to VN....1-2 days and I'm done with VN :P - Georgi makes a few more icons for TROMjaro so I can schedule some 22 leftover apps....almost another month of apps :D - great!
Tio
The Price we pay to Play the Game https://www.ourminds.online/2020/04/28/the-price-we-pay-to-play-the-game/ : rhymes with a lot of sense, for our present-day socio-economic nonsense ;)
Tio
Heads up: we post documentaries, movies and lectures daily on videoneat.com. Here are the latest:

- Jawline: how instagram makes young people care more about their face than about their mind, and how many businesses exploit the so called "instagram models".
- Florida: America’s Animal Paradise is about the amazing nature in Florida
- War on Plastic with Hugh and Anita: is a 3 part series about how much plastic there is in our environment
- Nature’s Misfits: is about weird creatures on these planets
- Dominion: a gruesome documentary about the livestock industry (really shocking one)
- A Squirrel’s Guide to Success: e gentle documentary about the lives of squirrels
- Inside the USA Gymnastics Scandal: how power and the competition mentality is at times a breeding ground for abuse
- Fyre Fraud: perhaps the biggest fraud in the "entertainment" industry for the past years - including some celebrities and the popular Instagram as a boosting for this scam
- First Face of America: a very interesting documentary about the first people who came to America
- Earth from Space: a FANTASTIC documentary series about the amazing Earth

Use VideoNeat to educate yourself! ;)

People live with the illusion of democracies and capitalism, yet the current pandemic proves that we live in a dictatorship combined with a sort of communism. The heads of tribes are forcefully keeping people locked inside their homes all around the world, and the stuff they are allowed to buy is limited in many cases. Top down decisions based on fear and punishment. From Australia to UK, USA to Spain, and everywhere else. It is true, such measures seemed to have helped in saving lives (and they still do), but it also showcases that our present day societies are made up of primitive people and illusionary ideas about how it all works. A saner population and society would have taken a more educational approach combined with problem solving and smart resource allocation. Give people trade-free access to their basic needs and they will be more educated when facing such big problems, and more able to cope with this "social distancing" by not being afraid if they will be able to eat tomorrow. Our problems are technical. Our primitiveness, just a lack of education and scientific knowledge. Both problems are mainly created by our trade-based society. Chat image

I always make this typo where instead of "now" I write "not". And that sucks balls because the meaning of what im tryin' to say can be 100% fucked :D. See if you detect that in my post about the trade-free website being translated into italian....jeez...hhaa
Tio
Thanks Fra for translating it!
Tio
The Trade-Free website is now fully translated into Italian https://www.trade-free.org/it/ and of course other languages. How to translate it? Super easy! Go to https://www.trade-free.org/, scroll at the bottom, select the language you want to translate it into. After the page refreshes, scroll down again and tick the box that says "edit the language". That's it, not click the little boxes besides any piece of text and start translating and save the work directly to trade-free.org. It is that easy! For the video simply click the button where you select the subtitles and "improve subtitle". Make the subtitle in your language and that's all. All of your work will be available at trade-free.org the moment you do it.

TOday, VideoNeat day! Let's add courses! That's what I'm doing for the next days. I already scheduled stuff on VN for 30 days, 1 a day, but I want to schedule for 30 more days or 60 more days. GO!
Tio
I'll take an IGAS tomorrow: I Don't Give A Shit :D . I need a break. 1 day break. I am a very tired....need to relax a bit then go back to my stuff!

TROMjaro vs Windows, a detailed look at these Operating Systems and how they manage real-life tasks that most people use. From the instalation process, to how they deal with files or installing applications. Which one is better? https://www.tromjaro.com/tromjaro-vs-windows-the-defaults/ Chat image
Tio
I am almost done with my detailed Windows vs TROMjaro article (and videos). I need to make one more video tomorrow - to remake it basically. And I'm done. Once I release this I can focus on finishing my job with adding stuff to VN. Doing things, one by one ;) - work work work. I enjoy it.
Tio
it is USD not USB :D
Tio
Thank you Brandon for the 27 USB Paypal donation! https://www.tromsite.com/donate/

No tromcast today ;) - i need to do some stuff like adding more courses to VN, and make an article for tromjaro :P - work work. productive!
Tio
Today I recorded a lot for an article I am making for tromajro.com....it is the ultimate and the most honest Windows vs TROMjaro :). I am so tired but hours of recording. I'll tell you more tomorrow. Maybe I will release it tomorrow. I've alos moved the VN stuff to teh 6TB HDD. Hours of copying....
Tio
My hard drive and microphone just came. Happy for that. I am now transferring 3+ TB of data to the 6TB one and that will allow me to add mroe stuff to VN the following weeks. Plus, the 3TB space that I'll free'up on my internal drive will be used for the upcoming documentary. Great! Also, tested the mic, quality is really great. I won't say it is 50 times better than the little lav mic I had, but still is great. I mean is 50 times more expensive at 55 Euros. But I didn't really buy it, I "borrowed" it since I can return it before 31st of May, and when you submit the return thing, you have weeks or months till you should send it back. So, probably I can use this mic for 2-3 months or so. If it is good enough and I really need it I may buy it. But since I'm so low on money we'll see.... Chat image

We are scheduling more Courses for VideoNeat.com for the next months. Tens of them + documentaries + movies. Here's a very relevant course we just published " An Introduction to Infectious Diseases" https://www.videoneat.com/courses/20184/an-introduction-to-infectious-diseases/
Tio
Fixed all videos from all TROM books. What happened is that I had to uplaod over 100 videos on vimeo over time, videos that otherwise would have been removed from youtube. We need them as "source". Then Vimeo closed my Pro account since I didnt want to pay for it anymore since we moved to the trade-free archive.org. So, in order to have these 100+ videos on vimeo not removed from vimeo, I hidden them from pulbic and only made them available on tromsite.com. But the free account what we have now does not have this feature so all videos became unavailable. Luckily the only thing I had to do is one by one change the privacy of these videos on vimeo. In any case, now all should work. Great!
Tio
Ok. So. My next plans are as follows:

1. make an article for tromjaro.com about how to take care of the system (updates, backups, adn all that) - i think it is interesting to clear some misconceptions of "oh linux is hard to work with and manage".

2. i NEED to fix over 100 links in all torm books (videos that were on vimeo and got deleted and now they are on archive.org). this will be a days long challange that i kinda hate....but i have to do it since some videos do not work. Maybe I'll get some help with this...

3. After these are done I want to schedule 20-30 more courses on VN.

Only after these are done, I can finally start my TROM 2 documentary challenge! I also ordered a 6TB hard drive for VN and teh documentary. Around 100 Euros. Not bad. I and Sasha have enough money for the next 3-4 months, then we are 100% broke haha. But we'll see.....
Tio
So, on top of helping some TROMjaro users today, I did this blog post that I wanted to do for a while "My experience with the Manjaro Forums" https://www.tiotrom.com/2020/04/my-experience-with-the-manjaro-forums/ - how we debated about "trade", how they "banned" my posts, and how they are bad at handling suggestions to improve their Operating System.

"Jobs are a primitive notion, here’s why" https://www.ourminds.online/2020/04/16/jobs-are-a-primitive-notion-heres-why/ - very good article by Jen Chat image

I released a new TROMjaro ISO witha a few minor fixes and such. See here https://www.tromjaro.com/releases/
Tio
Let's be honest, when people "want to go back to work", what they want is not the mandatory work they are forced to engage into, but the access to food, housing, a community, security and so forth. Jobs are nothing more than a way to enslave humans in a society that's already abundant with the stuff we all need and most of us want. Chat image

"About the german culture" - https://www.ourminds.online/2020/04/16/about-the-german-culture/ - Great article by Aaron about how the German culture is influence by trades as any other tribe out there.

Not much work today----was tired and such....I will have to schedule 20 more courses to VN and then I'll focus on other stuff. I plan to then dedicate 1 day a week for tromjaro and Vn, and focus on the TROM Documentary part 2 ;). I will have to go in lockdownmode myself too when I'll start the documentary. But tromjaro and videoneat will be updated constantly. I also need to update the tromsite.com translate page + add a few videos to our library (in the voices section) - older videos that i didnt add. And maybe do that video about tromjaro on a tablet. That's all I have to do these following days, before starting the big documentary project. I made a ton of progress and I'm on track with my plan. I LOVE that tromjaro adn videoneat are updated with tons of new stuff and will be for the next months to come! And next week probably I'll get that HDD so I can add more stuff to VN + I need it for the documentary. I only have 100GB left on my hard drives. No bueono!
Tio
Today, scheduling courses for VN...and maybe I'll buy a new hard drive so that I can add more stuff to VN. Will see.....

The human plague is created by our trade-based environment and kills far more people than that tiny virus. Both are important to tackle, but you can't just exterminate humans like you do with the virus. So, the best way, is to change their environment. Make the Monopoly game of trade OBSOLETE. We have enough stuff for everyone on Earth to have a luxurious life. There is no need to trade for that anymore. Chat image

Tomorrow we will have a new TROM-Cast live. This time we will discuss about the idea of a Universal Basic Income with our guest Scott Santens http://www.scottsantens.com/ - how relevant is UBI? Can it be a path towards a more trade-free society? On top of this we will discuss our new project: a blog where a bunch of us are writing our thoughts about the world. We hope it to be a hub where you will find new and plenty of information (new articles) about our society, present day events, and more. It is like a TROM-Cast Blog :). We will release it before the Cast. Chat image

The COVID-19 pandemic showcases very clearly, among many things, that politicians' decisions are uneducated, biased, and cost lives and resources. When will we accept that science knows best? Chat image

Scheduled more VN documentaries/series/movies - 1 a day, for this and next month! ;) - These days I'll schedule courses - some 20+ more courses. I can0t do more since I don't have more space on my machine.... :( - I will have to buy a 6TB hard drive soon. May make a donation campaign but for now that's all I can do....luckily such a HDD is not super expensive so prob I'll be able to buy it. So, a few more days of scheduling VN stuff then I'll let you know what's next ;). Tomorrow we will release a new website :P
