I'm pleased to announce:

Libre X230 has also reduced in price by £40, *temporarily*. I've recently acquired a large bulk of these machines, for a lower price than usual.

Coreboot and Debian Linux pre-installed. Secure, private. Freedom!

The distro of coreboot is osboot, which I maintain myself. Sales fund development.

Get it here:

Hot take:

Lisp is a better programming language when you have a tiny display device.

A question for #FLOSS folk out there: do you audit your dependencies? Do you do it each time you update your dependency?

I'm *considering* using an external dependency to build a time-constrained cache of information that is not strictly sensitive, but I've got a gut feeling that this cache could make my project vulnerable if things went wrong in a specific way.

All hints and advice welcome.

Also: please boost!

If IEEE 754 is so good how come there's no IEEE 755.00006103515625?

Saw this on twitter and it's absolute spot on. It's ridiculous.

PSA: With clown computing you run things on a clown and in a circus.
The correct terminology is therefore the amazon circus or the google circus.
Thank you for coming to my ted talk. I won't be able to answer questions at this time.

We recently did an upgrade of the bsd.network instance, and have run into a funny problem.

As part of the OS upgrade, we wiped our redis cache, which *ought* to work just fine. However, now user emails aren't sent. We can trigger some emails if we report, but emails for replies, boosts, favs, are not sent, even if the "always send" option is enabled.

We also no longer see the "mailers" queue in the /sidekiq/queues admin page. When we look at
/admin/dashboard, we will see a warning if the mailers queue isn't running.

Ideas?

Welcome the #HedgeDoc account :)

We were formerly known as #CodiMD, but due to some name conflicts, we decided to give ourselves a new name and a much cuter logo.

Who wants an old document when they can have a hedgehog?

You can read a bit more about it on our new history page: hedgedoc.org/history/
