Friendly reminder to all Americans that Open Enrollment for health insurance ends December 15th so if you need insurance be sure to go to healthcare.gov right now!! If you can't afford a premium you can get subsidized plans without premiums
Due to the open source firmware for USB atheros wifi devices, I am learning some interesting facts about "free-as-in-libre" hardware shops out there.
Friends of free software don't overcharge users of free software!

Occasionally, I work with someone who's named Dave. And every once in a great while, Dave will ask for something that just can't be done, for one reason or another; and I get to say:
"I'm sorry, Dave, I'm afraid I can't do that."
I'm scared of parsing text data... I usually start with strings until I discover it's getting too conplex... Then I attempt to write some grammar which I can feed to lex&yacc (never finished any substantial grammar). Alternative are parser combinators which are icky: bad error messages, easy to end up in infinite loops.. Usually binary is so much easier ;)

@LaQuadrature And why SIP?
I was living in Ireland at the time, but used my Berlin landline number relayed to me via SIP.
Free movemet between member state implies that internet censorship in one member state affects sizable portions of the populations of any other member state. My MEP could not disagree with that, at least not during our conversation (you'll never know what they'll say after hanging up).
Regarding calling your MPs for some cause: It's fun! I would encourage you to try at least once.
Years ago when the "3-strikes" issue came up in France, @LaQuadrature provided a list of european MEPs with phone numbers, which made it super easy. I called, and explained that having my internet cut for whatever reason would block me from participating in the democratic process. The initial response was "Well,but you could still call us!" - Then I explained I was on the line with them over SIP...
Hey people in USA
In december FCC plans another vote to end net neutrality. If you can, call your senator, and make sure they're aware that nobody wants to kill net neutrality besides cable companies. Let the people, not the highest bidder decide. Do what you can
