I have now moved PijamaClock and other personal projects here: currently redirects to gitlab, but will self-host if ever needed. As a bonus I've commited a change that now lets you configure any variables via PijamaClock.conf Have a look and let me know what you think!

Oh man: LinuxMint really have it right with their planB LMDE distro just in case a certain other giant starts buying up that other important Linux distro...

So it looks like HPE is shutting down my R&D lab and merging it with another lab.

Looks like I am going to be looking for work. Anyone know a company hiring for NFV, Openstack,SDN, 5G SDR, Linux work?

@Sunzo @Linux free software is just plain better. Faster is just a subset of better :stallman:

Oh boy, it seems my LinuxMintKDE is showing its age: I now consistently need to force it to shutdown with 'sudo halt' instead of a simple button press. Time to switch to Kubuntu 18.04 I guess...

Who could have known that pitting my two favourite scripting languages (Python & PHP) against eachother in an intensive number crunching cli race, would result in such a marginal not-even-victory for one of them, and me spending a considerable more significant amount of hours to find that out?

the podcast guys are looking for new (co)hosts. Any fans on that might want to take on the challenge? if so, let em know:

Time to shine : What would be your recommendations for a lightweight (Xorg) webbrowser to replace Firefox/Chromium for daily use?

jokes aside though, I think it would be good for him to take some time to address personality issues.

Even ignoring the privacy aspect, am I the only one that really does not like these virtual assistants that are so common now?

Ie Bixby, Cortana, Alexa, Siri, and even Mycroft

I finally wrote that blog post I've been meaning to forever now about how I came to be a Linux user. I think @omnipotens had asked us about that at one point.

master after merge with release branch (branched from develop), but 'git diff master develop' still shows differences...

Is this maybe a lesson in why you should not cherry-pick commits from master into develop? (much before release branch was created)

Any experts in the house? I basically have a master & develop branch: Both branches have had changes, but develop has the latest features. After creating a new release branch from dev and some commits on release, I find merging of release branch into master loses me some earlier changes made in develop & I'm confused on how that could have happened?

"Google AMP Can Go To Hell"

Google's Accelerated Mobile Pages initiative is an attempt to bully web devs into helping build the new "AOL Online" experience for Google, starting with an Open Source interface to an entirely proprietary cloud.

If this isn't similar to the Azure long game for Nadella's Microsoft I'm gonna lose a bet.

Protip for Chrome users: to improve your security when using Google Chrome, uninstall it and use a browser that’s not from a company which makes its money from spying on you 24/7
