I see that @mntmn published the "MNT Reform Operator Handbook": mntre.com/reform2/handbook/ind

I've only scanned it briefly but really like the vibes of this!

If you are looking for a way to help F-Droid get updates out faster, considering diving into the code and contributing! Relevant issues to tackle can be found here:

We recently cleaned up our translations. We removed some un-used text and moved the FAQ page to the documentation. Translating CryptPad is now easier for contributors, a good time to have a look at the few languages that were started but never finished: weblate.cryptpad.fr/projects/c

redbean [1] is a single-file distributable web server

the first crazy thing is that the executable is also an editable zip file that contains the assets to be served!

the second crazy thing is that its single binary (compiled from a single C file) runs on linux/windows/mac/BIOS and others using the αcτµαlly pδrταblε εxεcµταblε format [2]

#VirtualBox is now available in fasttrack.debian.net !

We have been running this repo for some time to serve #gitlab native package in debian.

This is the second package in #FastTrack. It is unofficial repo right now, but if more people find it useful, it could become an official repo.

The idea is to host packages that cannot be supported for the lifetime of a stable release (~2 years).


It's really nice to have @davidrevoy's artwork as part of @spritelyproject. Feeling really motivated just looking at this piece.

:debian: Finished packaging up a newer version of xpenguins for , most of the time was re-building my toolchain for packaging; gpg signing, docker container for builds, learning gbp.

Lintian is happy with the package and now testing it some in a Debian 11 VM with KDE and GNOME.

Next step is finding a sponsor and officially uploaded.


Gov'ts and civil society cannot afford to be dependent (as they have very foolishly allowed themselves to become, worldwide) on a handful of US multinational tech corporations. The problem isn't FB's action - it's the fact that Gov'ts are up-in-arms about it because they've got all their eggs in the Facebook basket. I pity them their lack of comprehension (I've been warning our gov't about this for 20+ years) and the deleterious effect it has on all of us.

The Replay Foundation, my employer, announced their liquidation today. This means no more Pinburgh. It also means I'm Officially out of a job for the forseeable, so if y'all wouldn't mind boosting a link to my other source of income Improbable Island, that'd be just super.


It's a silly online game and it doesn't pay as much as fixing pinball machines but heck it's what I've got right now, and this winter's probably gonna be a hairy one.
