Australia passes a new law that requires companies to provide a way to get encrypted communications and data via a warrant process.

I just finished my Bachelor's Degree in Material Science and Engineering

Time for a new hard drive for my tower. Main boot drive has damaged sectors.

Think I'm going to take the plunge and get an SSD.

I am officially on sabbatical from work.


My manager is receiving a promotion, and I will be getting a new one soon. I had a one-on-one with her.

@matt :debian: is the 'Universal Operating System'... 😃😃

I've come to the conclusion that while "distro" is a decent enough shorthand for operating system, it just doesn't cut it anymore.

All of the major Linux-based distros should rebrand as Linux-based Operating Systems.


When trying to pitch Debian to people, say the following:

:debian: Debian is a stable, no-surprises "operating system" you can rely on.

It is not just a mere distro, so don't market it as such.

"SuperTux" (a Super Mario Bros alternative) | a new release out.

A totally free and open source platformer inspired by original Super Mario Bros is still chugging along.

For my fellow Americans, have a happy Thanksgiving today.

Call me crazy, but I think :debian: Buster is mature enough to use it full time over Stretch. Even switched back to :)

Need to work on the theming. Its a bit wonky.

Whoa, Ubuntu 18.04 is getting 10 years of LTS support.

That's a shots fired to Red Hat.
