Boost if your first PC had a Turbo button.
Hey! Want to work at GNOME? We've opened recruitment for further expansion https://www.gnome.org/news/2018/07/gnome-foundation-opens-recruitment-for-further-expansion/
Also, I don't want huge monster tools like Packer or “docker-compose”, they reek of bloat. Of I need something complex to make my images, I would use Vagga for that anyway, which will happily output tarballs.
So, basically there is no standalone tool that takes a tarball and prepares a file system image contained in it to be pushed to Docker Hub. And no “docker import” is not standalone, because it requires the whole of Docker. Dear #lazyweb, I want something like “img” that takes a tarball as input.
For reference: https://github.com/genuinetools/img
If nobody has done it before, maybe O should fork “img” and call the newfangled creature “omg”. Now that would be a cool name.
After some thinking, I'm going ahead with this Python → C rewrite. Sometimes lower-lower, tested and tried is better than doing weird contortions needed to bend around one's way around language bindings.
Beginning June 11, no more free API key for Google Maps (now Google Maps Platform) if you don't provide a credit card.
A lot of custom Google maps that have been created over the years will likely no longer work.
This thread is from the Birdsite, but super interesting with lots of facts about human vision: https://twitter.com/Foone/status/1014267515696922624
Super recommended (and very civil, too!).
On a completely different note, I have installed a build of microG's LineageOS and now my phone does not run the big-G Store and Services anymore → https://lineage.microg.org/
(There's still a couple of apps which use the Cloud Messaging service through microG, but this new setup makes me much happier 😉)

I've just made a small release of my #Nginx fancy indexes module, with a couple of small fixes: https://github.com/aperezdc/ngx-fancyindex/releases/tag/v0.4.3
This last weekend I discovered the FeedReader application. Highly recommended if you still think #RSS feeds are the best thing since sliced break, and you use GNOME as your desktop, or you happen to favour GTK+ applications for some reason (in my case: good Wayland + HiDPI support) → https://jangernert.github.io/FeedReader/
