I wonder if M!cro$oft weren't in the area if Seattleites would be more open to #freesoftware and #creativecommons.

Yay! My crappy app #Askwise is now up to 100 commits, and I was able to merge this feature branch: github.com/DeadSuperHero/askwi

Lots of trials and tribulations, and I still have 11 issues to go. But the basic functionality is there, and I haven't given up yet!

Don't forget, it's #FreeSoftware #AGPLv3

Hey #FreeSoftware friends! What is the most freedom friendly USB smart card available right now? The NitroKey looks like it is fully free but I'd like to hear from some people who know more about this stuff.

Dot Eyes Shut

During #LGM 2014 we were setting up some lights to get a sample image during a workshop (we = darktable devs and Rolf Steinort from "Meet the GIMP"). Dot was kind enough to sit and be our model, and since the strobes were so bright she just kept her eyes closed...

I kinda liked how it turned out! :)

Security record of open source and free software

"The Coverity report finds a slightly lower defect density of free software versus proprietary software; in the area of Web applications, however, the exact opposite result was found, which is essentially due to the security weakness of PHP."

Announcing Talos™ II

Libre-friendly, powerful, and competitively priced — the new, POWER9-based Talos™ II is now available for pre-order! See full system details at

I’ve started a #free_software project and published the code on gitlab.com. Complaints have been raised that #GitHub would be easier to track.

If people were able to create decentralized social networks like #Mastodon, then shouldn’t it be possible to create also decentralized social coding protocols? #IPFS could possibly be used as a #Git storage backend and #PGP for authentication.

I was favorably impressed to hear Phil Zimmerman say that he lost to Signal. And that next time he will release Free Software instead. And called for interested engineers looking for a job :-)

Into the Fog

Crewboat leaving Dauphin Island, AL.

Raw developing and B&W toning in RawTherapee (for a change), and then into @GIMP for some further pixel-pushing.
