Just cracked open the boxes of tshirts for Texas Linux Fest to take a peek.

They're very cool.

If you're nearby, come for the tshirt, stay for all the interesting talks.

The biggest problem with working in an international company is that people work on your national holidays.

I'm a computer professional and I just spent a couple minutes debugging my camera setup for a video call before realizing the privacy cover was covering the camera.

I backed the Solo Key on Kickstarter and it should be coming soon.

I'm curious if I can use that to unlock a LUKS encrypted disk on Linux (specifically Ubuntu). Can't seem to find anything on that.

Anyone used FIDO2 and LUKS?

We're now at the point of Texas Linux Fest planning where every email makes me nervous something is missing.

I think we're doing okay, but a bunch of last minute stuff to get done and ready.

One week to go!

Looking at Github Actions:

Seems that you can basically get 100 minutes of CPU time for every event, which includes star'ing a project.

Which means that if I use that to mine bitcoin, you can transfer a little bit of Microsoft's money to me by liking my project.

Sustainable funding model for OSS development? 😉

Got in a car accident in December where I ended up in the hospital. It wasn't too bad, but they took X-rays.

5 months later I have finally gotten the bill from the radiologist who read that x-ray.

I feel like there should be a statute of limitations on medical billing. I already got the info from my insurance to know that they paid in January.

Love that someone took the time to package up Mosaic for modern Linux.

But the web isn't really usable with it.

Had to send my phone into repair so I'm using an older Nexus 5 with @ubports on it. Have to say I miss it.

Love how much everything is integrated and right at hand. Calendar entries, quick swipe. Replies, quick swipe. etc. etc.

Love the idea of bringing science to everyone, but I have to say I'm a little nervous about making biolabs this accessible.

It feels like we still don't have a grasp of the safety issues stemming from people making and releasing potentially dangerous biology into the world. I realize we can't keep the knowledge in a bottle, but wow, a whole new set of problems are coming.

They named the streets in part of our neighborhood after large cats. So there was just a notice for a:

Cougar Block Party

Probably attracts a different audience than what they're targeting.

Beautiful time of year as we get the first magnolia blooms of the season.

Which SSH keys are the *fastest*?

It seems that no one talks about this, but I'm SSH'ing into a container in my machine, I have no security concerns. I really want to use as little math as possible. But I can't seem to find which key types are actually the fastest.

Seems like a reasonable question? Or is that only for auth and another encryption is used for the connection?

Promoting Texas Linux Fest and had someone tell me they wouldn't come because we have a Code of Conduct.

I think they thought I'd react to it. Nope, I'm good with them not coming.

I guess having a Code of Conduct really does help keep jerks out.
