It took me forever (8h+ of work) to get matrix-appservice-irc (a matrix bridge to access IRC servers) working again. A word of advise double and triple check your configuration, a single typo will create weird behaviors (half working bridge with empty IRC rooms, etc.). Error message reported by the service are not straightforward if you don't know the inner of Matrix. That being said: kudos to the developers, I'm glad I'm back to one app to rule all my instant messaging.

It's that time again. Here's the first stable update after our 21.08 release.

It's a big one!

PS: A small regression sneaked into this update for rk3399 based boards. Ethernet does no longer work on kernel 5.14, so if you rely on that on your or please don't update the linux package.

Tadaa, a #pinenote showing its own schematics. It seems like the size of the pages of schematics is almost perfect for this.


This would actually be an amazingly effective way to teach people how computers work and what computer programming is.


A common misconception about the Linux kernel is that it's secure, or that one can go a long time without worrying about kernel security updates. Neither of these are even remotely true. New versions of Linux are released almost every week, often containing security fixes buried among the many other changes. These releases typically don't make explicit mention of the changes having security implications. As a result, many "stable" or "LTS" distributions don't know which commits should be backported to their old kernels, or even that something needs backporting at all. If the problem has a public CVE assigned to it, maybe your distro will pick it up. Maybe not. Even if a CVE exists, at least in the case of Ubuntu and Debian especially, users are often left with kernels full of known holes for months at a time. Arch doesn't play the backporting game, instead opting to provide the newest stable releases shortly after they come out.

I almost missed it: NixOS 21.05 is out! Again, a lot of work seems to have been placed in this release. For more information:

All it took was two bobby pins to open a dead bolt with a lost key.

Took 2 minutes with no experience. Makes you wonder about security.

Some freecad assembly4 love. I hope this helps some people to get to grips with this tool.
