You say blog post, but all I see is a link to Medium. 🤮

Absofuckingly love it that my phone autocompletes "absofuckingly".

Force Your Kids to Code With This Raspberry Pi Laptop.

Look, I don't know much about parenting, but forcing your kids? Nope. Absofuckingly not gonna happen.

Can someone who understands FOSS and communities and people better than me, explain something to me? What's the point of forking a project on GitHub but never commiting/pushing to that fork? Not opening a PR I understand, but if you don't have any changes to publish, why fork?!

To run X, create a Python script that invokes the X.main function.

We're currently developing a N900-style keyboard attachment for the #Pinephone. Do you think you can do better? Prove it. If you're right, your design may make it to production! 😎

The Ansible Bullhorn issue #7 is out!

And it seems it's been completely taken over by @foreman and Pulp on the community side! Three (!) posts from yours truly about tests and documentation and Pulp's announcement about their collection!


It's not yet 9:30, I didn't even started working, and yet my daily allowance of "be nice to people, they don't mean to be idiots" is already used up.

"Perhaps you may have missed my earlier email as I've not heard from you. For reference, I've included a copy below."

No, I ignored it absolutely intentionally, you idiot of a spammer.
