Debian
  • Back from FOSDEM

    FOSDEM continues to be huge. There are just so many people, and it overflows everywhere into ULB—even the hallways during the talks are packed! I don't have a good solution for this, but I wish I did. Perhaps some rooms could be used as “overflow rooms”, ie., do a video link/stream to them, so that more people can get to watch the talks in the most popular rooms.

  • My Debian Activities in January 2016

  • Free software activities in January 2016

    My work in the Reproducible Builds project was also covered in more depth in Lunar's weekly reports (#35, #36, #37, #38, #39)

Transcend Wifi SD Card Is A Tiny Linux Server

He read a post about these cards on the OpenWRT forums. They’re all a similar configuration of a relatively large amount of memory (compared to the usual embedded computer), a WiFi chip, and an ARM processor running a tiny Linux install. The card acts as a WiFi access point with a little server running on it, and waits for the user to connect to it via a website. It also has a mode where it will connect to up to three access points specified by the user, but it doesn’t actually have a way to tell the user what its IP address is; which is kind of funny.
