  • John Goerzen: Roundup of Secure Messengers with Off-The-Grid Capabilities (Distributed/Mesh Messengers)
    Amid all the conversation about Signal, and the debate over decentralization, one thing has often not been raised: all of these things require an Internet connection. “Of course,” you might say. “Internet is everywhere these days.” Well, not so much, and it turns out (...)

  • Junichi Uekawa: Yesterday was our monthly Debian meeting.
    Yesterday was our monthly Debian meeting. We do one every month for Tokyo and Kansai combined, because it's online and no reason to split for now.

  • Christian Kastner: Keeping your Workstation Silent
    I require moderately powerful boxes for my work. Moderately powerful boxes generate a non-negligible amount of heat, and therefore require appropriate cooling. Most cooling solutions involve a certain degree of noise, which I dislike. Water-cooling is supposed to be the most effective solution (...)

    It's been 20 years since I became a Debian Developer. Lots of fun things happened, and I think fondly of the team. I am no longer active for the past 10 years due to family reasons, and it's surprising that I have been inactive for that long. I still use Debian, and I still participate (...)

  • Steinar H. Gunderson: Bullseye freeze
    Bullseye is freezing! Yay! (And Trondheim is now below -10.) It's too late for that kind of change now, but it would have been nice if plocate could have been default for bullseye: Surprisingly enough, mlocate has gone straight downhill: It seems that since buster, there's an (...)

  • Russell Coker: PSI and Cgroup2
    In the comments on my post about Load Average Monitoring [1] an anonymous person recommended that I investigate PSI. As an aside, why do I get so many great comments anonymously?

  • Russell Coker: RISC-V and Qemu
    RISC-V is the latest RISC architecture that's become popular. It is the 5th RISC architecture from the University of California Berkeley.

  • John Goerzen: The Good, Bad, and Scary of the Banning of Donald Trump, and How Decentralization Makes It All Better
    It is undeniable that banning Donald Trump from Facebook, Twitter, and similar sites is a benefit for the moment. It may well save lives, perhaps lots of lives. But it raises quite a few troubling issues. First, as EFF points out, these platforms have privileged speakers with power, especially (...)

    Welcome to the 32th post in the rarely raucous R recommendations series, or R4 for short. This post covers continuous integration, a topic near and dear to many of us who have to recognise its added value. The popular and widely-used service at Travis is undergoing changes driven by a (...)

    The Smithsonian Mag has an informative article about the history of the game Monopoly [1].

  • John Goerzen: This Is How Tyrants Go: Alone
    I remember reading an essay a month or so ago — sadly I forget where — talking about how things end for tyrants. If I were to sum it up, it would be with the word “alone.” Their power fading, they find that they had few true friends or believers; just others that were (...)

    There is no denying in the fact that 2020 was a challenging year for everybody, including animals. In India, animals such as dogs who mostly filled their bellies at street food stalls, were starving as there were no street eateries operating during a long long lockdown. I was in my home town, (...)

    My PaperWM desktop, as I write this post. Just before Christmas I decided to try out a GNOME extension I'd read about, PaperWM. It looked promising, but I was a little nervous about breaking my existing workflow, which was heavily reliant on the Put Windows extension. It's great! I (...)
