  • Thomas Goirand: How can Lintian stop being annoying
    As I care to have all the Lintian output and warnings, I have this in my ~/.lintianrc: info=yes display-info=yes display-experimental=yes pedantic=yes show-overrides=yes color=auto So, by default, my Lintian setup displays all pedantic warnings. However, it's been annoying me with the (...)

  • Matthew Palmer: Adventures in DNSSEC
    DNSSEC is one of those things that have been on the “I should poke at that sometime” list, but today I decided to actually get in and play around with it. Turns out it's pretty trivially easy to setup, but I got bitten by a few “gotchas” during testing, that I thought (...)

  • Paul Tagliamonte: Apple and Debian: A tragic love story
    One which ends in tears, I'm afraid. A week or so ago, I got an MacBook Air 13” (MacBook Air 6-2), to take with me when I head out to local hack sessions, and when I travel out of state for short lengths of time. My current Thinkpad T520i is an amazing machine, and will remain my daily (...)

  • Christoph Egger
    I've been working on my backup strategy for the notebook recently. The idea is to have full backups every now month and then incremental backups in between as fine-grained as possible. As it's a mobile device there's no point in time where it is guaranteed to be up, connected and (...)

  • Christoph Egger
    I've written a small dmenu-based script which allows to select passwords from one's pass password manager and have it xdotool typed in. This should completely bypass the clipboard (which is distrusted by people for a reason). As I've been asked about the script a few times in the (...)

  • Jonathan McDowell: Forms of communication
    I am struck by the fragmentation in communication mechanisms. Let's look at how I have communicated with my friends in the past few days: Phone call Tried and tested, though I tend to avoid them. I've made some deliberate calls to sort out immediate plans, and at least one accidental (...)

  • MJ Ray: New comments methods
    After years of resisting it, I've added the least evil Twitter/Facebook comments plugin I could find to this blog as a test and updated the comments policy a little. Please kick the tyres and try commenting to see if it works, (...)

  • Mario Lang: Four new packages on the GNU Emacs Package Archive (ELPA)
    I have begun to push some of the Emacs Lisp Packages I have been working on over the last years to GNU ELPA, the Emacs Lisp Package Archive. That means you can use "M-x list-packages RET" to install them in GNU Emacs 24. OpenSound Control library In 2007, I wrote OSC server and client support (...)

  • Christoph Berg: Comparing Version Numbers in Shell
    On RedHat/CentOS/rpm systems, there's no dpkg --compare-versions available - sort -V can help to compare version numbers: version_lt () newest=$( ( echo "$1"; echo "$2" ) | sort -V | tail -n1) [ "$1" != "$newest" ] $ version_lt 1.5 1.1 && echo yes $ version_lt 1.5 1.10 && (...)

    AltOS 1.4.1 — Fix ups for 1.4 Bdale and I are pleased to announce the release of AltOS version 1.4.1. AltOS is the core of the software for all of the Altus Metrum products. It consists of firmware for our cc1111, STM32L151, LPC11U14 and ATtiny85 based electronics and Java-based ground (...)

  • Matthew Palmer: Moving forward with an SSL Co-op
    Since first posting my idea for an SSL co-op a couple of weeks ago, I've gotten some positive feedback from people, and further thinking and research has convinced me that it is feasible to at least attempt it. As a result, I'd like to announce the public unveiling of The SSL Co-op. It is (...)

  • Steve Kemp: So I accidentally ... a service.
    This post is partly introspection, and partly advertising. Skip if it either annoys you. Back in February I was thinking about what to do with myself. I had two main options "Get a job", and "Start a service". Because I didn't have any ideas that seemed terribly interesting I asked people (...)

  • Daniel Pocock: Bendigo: a risk of becoming the Australian capital of Islamophobia?
    I spent most of my high-school years in a small town called Bendigo in Australia. These days, I'm living in the centre of Europe, Switzerland. Oddly enough, a more than trivial number of people in Bendigo are now trying to imitate one of the darkest moments in Switzerland's history, a (...)

  • Francesca Ciceri: Adventures in Mozillaland #2
    Time for an update from my internship at Mozilla, as part of the OPW. The last weeks have been a bit rough: I have my usual migraines to thank for that. It's not easy to work with them: you are either stoned by the meds, or cannot look at a monitor. And while you're trying to sleep (...)
