We are clearly winning the hashtag over literal hats on YouTube — youtube.com/hashtag/fedora. Less so on twitter, but I think getting more and more in our favor over time. I wish I had a way to get a running historical trendline for the ratio!

Ok I know this isn't important but: every writer or editor who capitalizes "Dumpster" even when it is not a Dempster Dumpster brand name trademark waste receptacle, please also capitalize Escalator at all times for logical consistency. Thank you.

I'm going to do a Business Hot Take. And that is: managers should be classed as "individual contributors".

If it goes over 2560 copies/mL, they'll start blinking. Which... hopefully will not be a thing again. Butttttt the trend isn't looking good so.

I'm getting the data from mwra.com/biobot/biobotdata.htm and doing unspeakable things to turn the PDF back into an actual table, and then the scale is the log₂ of the latest value ÷ 10, rounded down.

The light switch by our front door has this row of programmable multi-color LEDs, and I set it up to reflect the latest regional covid-in-wastewater numbers on an exponential scale. So right now it looks like this...

We are kicking the Fedora Linux 36 Release Party off in about 2 minutes with intro remarks from @mattdm @FunnelFiasco & @rie_cat 🎉🎉 app.hopin.com/events/fedora-li

Watch the brand-new teaser trailer for : The Way of Water. Experience it only in theaters December 16, 2022.

And speaking of the Fedora Release Party... our friends over at @daskeyboard made something _really cool_: beautiful custom Fedora logo keyscaps! Come to the party to find out how to get yours!

We are at 550 registrations for the Fedora Linux 36 release party — @rie_cat says we can make it to 750! Tell your friends, share the link (and register yourself, of course). Unlike many Fedora events, Release Parties have a user focus (new users, too!)


I hope you are enjoying the wallpaper!

Party time! (Well, actually — the party is on Friday and Saturday. See you there?)

Cultural reference poll! If I end a statement with "Film at 11", do you have any idea what I mean by that?
