I have now moved PijamaClock and other personal projects here: git.esperanzaproxima.net/Pijam 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!

Dear /#Fediverse, hope you'll come to my aid: I have always been an avid book reader, but recently feel a distinct lack of new and exciting things to read. I've always been a great fan of Scifi, but have lost touch with recent developments. Any suggestions you may have in that area are more than welcome. I'd also be interested in more techincal/IT-related books, or anything you feel worth recommending, really. Thanks! (note I still prefer the dead tree experience, regrettably)

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: mintcast.org/

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