I just found out about openbsd.amsterdam ! They are a OpenBSD VPS provider, and they donate 10% to OpenBSD. They are approaching donating $1000/month to OpenBSD. If you are looking for a VPS, and you like OpenBSD, then you might try them out! I think I am going to try to use it as cheap VPN.

@pauho I saw in your Bio that you have been using Elementary Os...how is it?

@thor Did you write the bogofilter-opensmtpd? I am itching to try that out!

I've got my own email server now! It's awesome! Now I need to set up bogofilter and sieve filtering.

So I now have my own XMPP account hosted an gnucode.me! And I've my own email set up at gnucode.me (minus a good spam filter and dkimsigning). I'm pretty stoked about both of those!

Racket does have a really cool gui toolkit that's integrated into the language! docs.racket-lang.org/gui/

I am liking the PinePhone on Mobian. Gnome/phosh is prettg good. and im writing this on said pinephone and listening to pandora via pithos. its pretty rad.

So, I'm researching building a dumb/smart phone. Or XMBC based computer. Or MP3 player...via a oLinuXino board. Promising candidate boards include the A64-OLinuXino-2Ge8G-IND, which is the same CPU that the Pine64 phone has or the stmp1, which has a GPU on the board. What's awesome is that some (or all?) of the boards are nearly RYF and they open hardware. You can modify and sell your modified boards! olimex.com/

I will be doing some live documentation writing/maybe email configuring on Guix System today at 9:30pm. I am on EST, which is -5 UTC. Come and hang out and ask questions:


I am currently writing some documentation for GNU Guix cookbook at jitsi.member.fsf.org/guix password guix.

I'll be sharing my screen, embarrassing life stories, and dad jokes. Ya'll are welcome to join.

So I just installed OpenBSD! And the Leah Rowe from libreboot helped me re-flash my ROM image to do it. Basically SeaBIOS is the bios to use if you want to boot the *BSDs.

Apparently the Libre SOC/GPU/VPU effort is looking to pay people for hardware design via NLnet!

It's the same guy that did the micro desktop the EOMA68 computing devices:
libre-soc.org/3d_gpu/ (this site is more up to date)

Luke latest message from his mailing list is that he urgently needs some hardware developers. There is a time limit.


I'm planning on selling GNU/Linux desktop machines. Core i3/i5/i7 processors, 8-16GB of RAM, 1 TB hard drive/SSD (Or RAID), with or without a Nvidia Kepler graphics card in the $300 to $500 range. This would include the speakers, monitor, mouse, etc. Comments and suggestions are most welcome.

I've got a new blog post up about setting up a locally running dovecot server to help one search emails faster with Emac's Gnus. gnucode.me/a-locally-running-d

Smarter people would probably just set up mu4e.
