Okay, my current Fitbit has well and truly died. Given their recent acquisition, I'm not too interested in getting a replacement from them. Is there any sort of pedometer alternative? All I'm really interested in is step count…

(My phone is not a great choice b/c reasons.)

Want to be in charge of a critical piece of software that runs on pretty much every linux desktop?

libinput is searching for people to eliminate the bus factor:

Would be great when such critical software parts wouldn't rely on the shoulders on a single person (not me).

Just re-upping this offer: because being comfortable with git is a barrier to entry to many FS/OSS projects, and because I care deeply about lowering those barriers, I will tutor anyone who asks for help with git, and/or connect them with any mentor(s) they might prefer.

I'll do this while I put energy and work into making the tool more approachable, and into making better tools and learning paths.

Boosts gratefully appreciated.

Hackers, Freedonians and Everyone Else...

You may not know me but I produce and edit a Free Software podcast called Libre Lounge. I want to take the podcast in some new directions, either LL itself, or a new podcast with a similar aim, but to do that, I'm going to need some help- production and editing especially. If you have those kinds of skills and can help, please send me a direct message or email me at emacsen@emacsen.net!

Modest proposal: if you have enough money that it seems like a good idea to spend some of it to climb up Mount Everest and then stand in line until you die of exposure, we should tax you until you don't.

I have to say anyone in the Seattle area you are missing out not going to #seagl this Linux conference is the best! They really care about inclusion and diversity 💖❤️<3 #seagl2018 was fantastic

Is expecting developers to segregate whitespace/formatting changes into distinct commits, away from actual code changes, too high of a bar? Opinions sought; RTs welcomed.

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe.
Custom RS232 cables like snakes pouring from the SCSI adapter.
I watched termcap files glitter in the ir_black colorscheme in vim
All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.
