This is Alan. Alan ended his own life on 7th June 1954. He laced an apple with cyanide and ate a bite from it. He did this because the British government chemically castrated, humiliated and prosecuted him for being gay.

Alan is the reason why a chunk is bitten out of the Apple logo…in honour of Alan Turing.

Ok so what did he do? He invented computer science and using his first designs he decrypted the Enigma code - the machine base encryption that the Nazis and the German military used to communicate secret commands to each other in world war 2 - and hence he both saved millions of lives and brought us into the modern age of computing.

Pride month isn’t just about dancing on floats in gold hot pants or flying a rainbow flag. It’s about remembering that everyone has a right to be happy, love who they want to love, and recognise the outstanding contribution that everyone can make in a society free of fear or prejudice.

Remembering Alan……

Ich suche immer noch eine kleine Wohnung (oder ein WG-Zimmer mit Menschen, die Corona ernst nehmen) in Maastricht oder auch Herzogenrath und Aachen in Bahnhofsnähe. Im Idealfall bis 500 Euro warm, 600 wären auch noch machbar.
Falls also wer was weiß, gerne mir weiterleiten.
Im Idealfall ab August, spätestens September und früher ginge auch

Please boost for reach. So, anyone that is working on FOSS projects like web apps, sites, Linux apps, desktop environments, or other user interfaces, please let me know if you want them tested for accessibility. I can do both CLI, web, and GUI testing, and app testing on Android. I'm running Debian (on a ChromeBook but that's not too important), so just give me the name of the package, or the URL of the site or app. I can also do Flatpak!

My next tech book (OpenBSD Mastery: Filesystems) won't be available on Kindle. You'll find print at Amazon, but the ebook will be available everywhere EXCEPT Amazon.

Why? They're requiring me to screw my readers. I won't do it.

My talk was accepted at EuroBSD this year. I will be talking about audio ecosystem on #FreeBSD, from consumer electronics to high end studio equipment. I tend to expose all the gory details of realtime, jack2 porting and much more. Hope to see you there!

It's 1000° degrees outside and guess who's going to a wedding.

Replace every article about Elon Musk with an article about someone fixing/maintaining important infrastructure. A person repairing buses. A person repairing and tweaking wheelchairs. A person tending to a community garden.

ICYMI: @bsdcan later this week is not only virtual, it is free. All you need is a web browser and a zoom client.

I'll be presenting Friday at 11:15am. My talk is recorded, to minimize disruptions, but the q&a after is live.

Übrigens können #SansPapier Personen das #9EuroTicket nicht nutzen, da es personalisiert ist und bei Kontrolle ein Ausweis vorgezeigt werden muss.

Idee: Wenn ihr im Besitz eines übertragbaren Tickets seid (im Rahmen eines Abos, z. B. Ticket 2000 im VRR) und eine SansPapier Person kennt, dann leiht doch dieser Person für die 3 Monate das Ticket. Damit würdet ihr dieser Person bestimmt sehr helfen.

I work at a ccTLD (.IS), and lately we are seeing a *lot* of new accounts immediately registering multiple domains that all had been registered in the past. I suspect we're not the only ccTLD that sees this.

We know of at least two instances of this being used to take over social media accounts that had e-mails in expired domains set as backup e-mail addresses.

This seems to be organized and well-resourced.

Please double-check you don't use e-mails in any expired domains anywhere.


Someone thought it might be wise to turn off the UPS during an OPNsense upgrade. m( Guess who's spending their Saturday recovering from backups?

Is this the beginning of a bad habit?
Just bought a Keychron K1 TKL low-profile keyboard with Optical Red switches 😢
