Not sure why you would miss RMS. I, for one, just have rms.sexy running on a second screen at all times.

Anyone knows what happened to Apache/httpd releases? We're waiting for an important bugfix for @remotestorage servers, which has taken almost a decade to hash out. But it looks like nobody's been managing new releases since last summer...

Hey guys, Thunderbird is STILL hiring developers. You can help modernize an application used by ~20,000,000 people and growing!

The open source community can make something better than Outlook, but only if folks come and build it.

Made a legit Pad Kra Pao, from all the right ingredients. So satisfying.

Added "clubhouse.com" to my timeline filters. And so can you.

For the people wondering wtf I'm talking about: the "Chancellor on brink of second bailout for banks" headline, and date of the issue, is encoded in Bitcoin's very first block, a.k.a. the genesis block.

Got a poster printed for the house, of a certain newspaper front page.

Not sure how I never knew about this, but probably due to only seeing it on laptop screens and never zooming in, but: the small black bar under the Eat Out header says "Start collecting tokens today".

Just found an old Bitcoin transaction monitor/visualizer of mine, which I apparently pushed to GitHub in December of 2013. Good memories. And doesn't feel like it's been that long ago at all.

I was positively surprised by the smooth setup experience of getumbrel.com last night, Flashing their Raspian distro onto an SD card, and turning on your Pi with a large-enough external drive attached, is pretty much all you need to do.

But how do you trust devs who think that CC-BY-NC-ND is ever a valid license choice for code? Not even speaking of being proper open-source or not, but everyone pushing a commit to their public GitHub fork is already in violation of the license.

Any devs here know what happened to David DM? It's been down entirely for a couple of days already.
