Introducing! 🎉

A few days ago, @kev asked the community for help maintaining his side-project, This got me thinking.

There are loads of maintainers out there feeling burnt out, but they can't abandon their project since people are depending on the project to be maintained.

In an effort to combat this, I built a website that lists projects looking for new maintainers. It's still quite empty and has some rough edges, so any feedback is very welcome.

Anyone catch any SSTV images from the ISS yet? Anyone planning to try? Heard they started a bit early but have not confirmed.

Recycling some papers from my folks place and found an old RadioShack flyer with a Linksys wireless page.

Found an interesting salvage and restoration project for an Model 20 on Slashdot today. Incredible to think that processors at one point weighed over half a ton.

Arguing with Asterisk (via raspbx) for hours, cannot get my android phone to register or get any response from the server...

decide to try a softphone on my laptop, and guess what? It works.


There seems to be basically no documentation out there on how to actually *use* this software.

Anyone else had this issue? Or know what stupid mistake I don't know I've made?

Found a working telescope by the Illinois/Missouri border. And it was free to use!

Found this /e/ project through slashdot yesterday and wanted to know if anyone has tried the beta release?

Gotta love an Android alternative and they have a much longer list of supported devices than I would have expected.

Finally joined the fediverse and fosstodon seemed like a solid place to jump in.

I am a Fedora Linux user (full-time since v25) and have been using Linux and FOSS in some capacity for the past ten years. My roots are in Debian.

Recently I've been taking the time to really learn Vim and alongside that, started writing in Markdown. I'm also learning to use Ansible and reading through The Phoenix Project by Gene Kim, et al.

Looking forward to being a part of this community!
