I just found out about https://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. #vpn #openbsd
Racket does have a really cool gui toolkit that's integrated into the language! https://docs.racket-lang.org/gui/
Also oLimex sells an OpenWRT router. I'm not certain how powerful it is: https://www.olimex.com/Products/OLinuXino/RT5350F/RT5350F-OLinuXino-EVB/open-source-hardware
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! https://www.olimex.com/
Apparently the Libre SOC/GPU/VPU effort is looking to pay people for hardware design via NLnet!
Luke latest message from his mailing list is that he urgently needs some hardware developers. There is a time limit.
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. http://gnucode.me/a-locally-running-dovecot-in-guix.html
Smarter people would probably just set up mu4e.
I interviewed one of the XaoS maintainers, which is a fractal viewing program!
I interviewed Gavin Smith, who is the current GNU Texinfo maintainer! It was super fun!
