  • Emmanuel Kasper: Big Iron UNIX emulated on ARM
    I have somewhere in the basement a DEC Vax workstation, but in the end it was a bigger fun to run an emulated Vax 11/780 (size of two refrigerators) in Beagle Bone Black (size of a big matchbox). For this I used the Dockerfiles available in this git repo using the simh emulator, and tweaked a (...)

  • Molly de Blanc: Seven hundred words on Internet access
    I wrote this a few months ago, and never published it. Here you go. In the summer of 2017, I biked from Boston, MA to Montreal, QC. I rode across Massachusetts, then up the New York/Vermont border, weaving between the two states over two days. I spent the night in Washington County, NY at a (...)

  • Louis-Philippe V?ronneau: Today (March 20th 2020) is the day to buy music on Bandcamp

  • Norbert Preining: Fixing mate-terminal URL highlighting
    One of the recent updates in Debian swept in changes so that mate-terminal couldn't highlight URLs anymore (Debian bug report, upstream bug report). I got so fed up with this that I fixed it and send a pull request. Update Debian packages for amd64 Debian/sid are in my usual repo at (...)

  • Matthias Klumpp: Maintain release info easily in MetaInfo/Appdata files
    This article isn't about anything “new”, like the previous ones on AppStream – it rather exists to shine the spotlight on a feature I feel is underutilized. From conversations it appears that the reason simply is that people don't know that it exists, and of course that's a (...)

  • John Goerzen: It Doesn't Take Much to Make Someone's Day
    In times like these, it is natural to fear. Viruses, incompetent leadership, economic hardship, even death. But remember this: When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, “Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.” (...)

  • Julien Danjou: One year of Mergify
    It has been close to a year now that I've incorporated my new company, Mergify. I've been busy, and I barely wrote anything about it so far. Now is an excellent time to take a break and reflect a bit on what happened during those last 12 months.What problem does Mergify solve? Mergify (...)

  • Riku Voipio: This is the year not to fly
    If you have to choose one year when you won't fly, this year, 2020, is the one to choose. Why? Because CORSIA. What the heck is CORSIA? CORSIA is not a novel virus, but "Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation". In a nutshell, the aviation industry says they will (...)

  • Rapha?l Hertzog: Keeping Debian 8 Jessie alive for longer than 5 years

  • Steve Kemp: Goodbye twitter
    I was slow to start using twitter, but found it a lot of fun. Often it would be useful at times when websites were slow; I'd hop to the website and search "edinburgh network", "github down", or "helsinki outage" and find live updates as people disclosed problems before the appropriate (...)

  • Axel Beckert: Backup over Tor with BackupPC
    I have a Raspberry Pi at my parents home. They have internet access via some ISP using Carrier Grade NAT (CGN). Hence their home router is not reachable via IPv4 from the outside, they do have IPv6 and the devices can also be made accessible via IPv6 via the local router. Did that, was able to (...)

  • Markus Koschany: My Free Software Activities in February 2020
  • Antoine Beaupr?: Font changes
    I have worked a bit on the fonts I use recently.

  • Sam Hartman: Forged Email
    Last night, a series of forged emails was sent to a number of places around the Debian, Ubuntu and Free Software communities.

  • Ulrike Uhlig: Implementing feedback into our work culture
    Everywhere I worked in the past, the only feedback that was asked of employees was during a yearly evaluation meeting. These meetings always felt to me like talking to Santa Claus and his Knecht Ruprecht. I was asked: Were you a good employee last year? If yes, we might give you a raise. If no, (...)

  • Lisandro Dami?n Nicanor P?rez Meyer: Qt 4 removed from Debian Sid (unstable)

  • Julian Andres Klode: APT 2.0 released
    After brewing in experimental for a while, and getting a first outing in the Ubuntu 19.10 release; both as 1.9, APT 2.0 is now landing in unstable. 1.10 would be a boring, weird number, eh? Compared to the 1.8 series, the APT 2.0 series features several new features, as well as improvements in (...)

  • Fran?ois Marier: Fixing MariaDB InnoDB errors after upgrading to MythTV 30
    After upgrading to MythTV 30 and MariaDB 10.3.18 on Debian buster, I noticed the following errors in my logs: Jan 14 02:00:05 hostname mysqld[846]: 2020-01-14 2:00:05 62 [Warning] InnoDB: Cannot add field `rating` in table `mythconverg`.`internetcontentarticles` because after adding it, the row (...)

  • Steinar H. Gunderson: Random STL wishlist
    Things I wish the C++ STL had (without having to pull in Boost or similar), in random order: unordered_map with a fixed size, and LRU expiry. nth_element that can interpolate linearly (for percentiles). A way to automatically generate operator for C++20. A way to compare integers and doubles (...)

  • Dirk Eddelbuettel: RcppSimdJson 0.0.3: Second Update!

  • Norbert Preining: Okular and restoration of tabs (plus Debian packages)
    I have the need to restore my okular tab setup on restart, since I often have quite a lot of pdfs open to view at the same time. Unfortunately, the current okular doesn't provide this feature. There is a merge request by one of the main authors of okular, but it doesn't work for me in a (...)
