time! I'm a computer engineer by day and a half-elf druid by night. In my free time I like to tinker with Linux, software-defined radio, digital logic, FPGAs, lock picking, and D&D. I wrote some code that is running on the space station! I somehow let my wife amass 8 guinea pigs. One Punch Man is awesome. Oh, and I love stroopwafels.

BTW, I use Arch Linux. (Although I'd like to try something new soon. Gentoo? Debian? Gotta stay edgy!)

I'm thinking about going to Northwest. :tux: Anyone else on Fosstodon or the fediverse thinking about going, too?

Taking my favorite game on Android, untangle, and seeing how it runs on the . Looks like I might need to change how the click/touch and drag works... I'm glad @Purism fixed the LCD panel driver. Thanks!

Alright, I _really_ like Simon Tatham's Puzzle Collection. The Android port on Fdroid is great, and I just found out many distros have packages for it, too. Try out 'untangle'!


I've just released #ncdu 1.14. This release adds mtime display & sorting, a limited form of --follow-symlinks, can display larger file counts in the file browser and fixes a few bugs you weren't likely to trigger anyway.

Finally got to sit down with my dev kit from ! I'm excited to learn more about SIM cards, GPS, and the FOSS that ties it all together. Will 2019 be the year of the phone?

is in the middle of doing a series of upstream releases. X2Go Desktop Sharing has been entirely reworked. The X2Go Session Broker has been ported to Python3 and seen many bug fixes. All components with GUIs are finally on Qt5. As components get released upstream, I do my best in getting the stuff uploaded to early enough in time for upcoming Debian . Install a Debian 9, upgrade/dist-upgrade to testing and give feedback via Debian BTS. Thanks!

Oh, we've got some news! I'm excited to play with the dev kit. What should I do first with it?


Since I couldn't find some active FOSS community on matrix, I created a channel on my homeserver, feel free to join ;)


Purism has an update on their progress with the Librem 5. If you're considering getting one, new information for you!

Yes, today, after having troubles with windows, I convinced 2 coworkers to try out Linux, I'm gonna show them a few distros this weekend and help them installing it on their secondary computers. Today's a happy day!

I'm really starting to dig . I'm using this $25 USB dongle to decode the TPMS radios in my car tires that broadcast the pressure and temp.

Oh, and the sweet tools available make it even better!

It's International Day Against DRM on Tuesday the 18th of September!

Many DRM-free e-book retailers have sales on the day, so keep an eye out for bargains. Libreture is involved too, and will have it's own special announcement to support DRM-free books.



Ouch, my desktop completely froze last night and messed my boot files. I'm glad live USBs are here to save my butt and let me reinstall just the kernel and friends. Now I need to figure out what keeps causing it to all freeze, but there's never anything in my logs. Just stops. ⏱️
