“[Миссия] Artemis 1 was designed to stress the Orion systems, and we ended up in deep orbit. [Луны] like on a really good way to do it. It just so happens that in this really big orbit, at a high altitude above the moon, we were able to break the Apollo 13 record.” said NASA spokesman Jim Geffre.

At one time, Apollo 13 moved away from Earth at a distance of 400,171 km, the new record set by Orion is 401,798 km.

Bitcoin soared to the equivalent of 38000 in Nigeria

The price of one bitcoin (BTC) in Nigeria soared to the equivalent of $38,000 in the local currency, naira. This is significantly higher than the price of bitcoin on the world market, which is about $23,000.

At the time of writing, on the Nigerian crypto exchange NairaEX for 1 bitcoin they give 17.4 million naira, which corresponds to 37.8 thousand dollars. The peak value was 38.8 thousand dollars.

This is due to the fact that the Central Bank of Nigeria continues to impose restrictions on cash withdrawals from ATMs in order to reduce the share of cash in money circulation.

Bitcoin soared to the equivalent of $38,000 in Nigeria

In January, new rules were introduced that allowed Nigerians to withdraw no more than 20,000 naira (about $43.50) from ATMs per day, with a weekly limit of 100,000 naira (about $217).

The move was also taken just days before the new naira notes entered circulation in an effort to curb inflation and money laundering. The central bank has set a January 24 deadline for Nigerians to exchange their old higher denomination banknotes for the new currency.

However, long queues and complaints forced the Central Bank to extend Nigeria’s deadline until Feb. 10.

Free and open source graphics editor: the mythical GIMP 3.0 will be released before the end of 2023, officially

In November 2022, GIMP celebrated its 27th birthday. Thus, users have been waiting for the third version for a really long time. The possible release of GIMP 3.0 has been talked about for a decade. GIMP 3.0 will have a redesigned user interface, a migration from GTK2 to GTK, and many other changes.

Until the end of 2023, the release of stable versions, or at least the first release candidates, is expected. True, in the report, the developer Jean Pages also left himself room for maneuver:

Here. I said it. If it doesn’t, remember that it wasn’t a promise.

He also explained:

There’s still a lot to be done, so I hope I’m not making a fool of myself. But at some point, the impossibility of the release is simply disappointing. Of course, we’re still within acceptable development time limits (GIMP 2.8-2.10 took 6 years, we’re still in our fifth year after 2.10), but I really want to get it over with.
