If for some reason you find yourself living outdoors in less than excellent climate,
make sure you put distance between the place you sleep and the ground.
The ground will contain relatively infinite amounts of cold as well as dampness which helps transfer coldness.

A very excellent help to create such a distance is cargo pallets, which many places just regard as waste and will not mind at all if you have them.

Put them under your tent or whatever you have, then build everything else OVER that layer of ventilation.
It will also help ensure rotting, omld, etc is less likely.

If it's fortunately short term, look for pine branches or similar.

After years of barely using a computer at home, I bought a laptop battery today and fired up my Linux machine.

2.5 GB of long pending updates later, it should be fully loaded with bleeding-edge open source software.

I will then install some newer software that I require now.
Any recent recommendations for Linux setups? Been out of the loop for four years now.

e.g. I'm interested to know what Window Managers, Command Line Utilities, etc. people use these days.

I am much closer to attaining the balance I want.

The only thing that's remaining is reading text books and academic papers regularly, so that I can level up my knowledge.

Music, Spirituality, Exercise, Reading and Sport are coming along nicely.

There was a time when I was doing poorly in all six categories, but now I'm on autopilot in 5/6. Once I figure out how to incorporate some regular studying, life will be πŸ•΄οΈ.

Had a tough, but productive day trying to set up services so that they work well together.

There's more to be done tomorrow.

We still have a tech position open at the Freedom of the Press Foundation (a nonprofit): a Sr. Software Engineer position to work on SecureDrop, the open source whistleblower platform used by 65+ media organizations, originally developed by the late Aaron Swartz.

You get paid to work
βœ… from anywhere in the world
βœ… on a world-changing project
βœ… that's open source,
βœ… stewarded by a small team
βœ… that's led by a woman.

Help spreading the word is much appreciated:
