Made a logo for my virtual rally team. Welcome Jonn's Greenhorns. We'll be driving a 2012 Škoda Fabia S2000 in this year's inaugural RBR JRC!

F-Droid Adventure

Making a properly functioning F-Droid repository for #Lagrange was a bit more challenging than anticipated.

I never met Aaron afaik. However many of my friends were very close to him.
I do think that Aaron would want his name and actions to be used in a way to fight for the freedoms he did, but he shouldn't have had to die for it, and I'm sensitive to how painful it is for loved ones.

Remembering Aaron Swartz, who died on this day, a victim of the copyright system walledculture.org/remembering-

By @glynmoody

Aaron's face gets thrown around the internet to prop up campaigns and etc, but it's important to remember that Aaron was an activist for digital rights, and was bullied into suicide by a system that wanted to punish him for his activism. He was also a human being with friends and family who loved him dearly.

The City of Ottawa made a video titled "What happens to my garbage"

I was surprised that they said at the end of the video: "Buy less, repair more" as well as: "sell, swap, or donate what you don't need" in addition to the usual "use reusable packaging" stuff.

It's also just interesting to see the landfill's processes.

I set up an F-Droid repository for the #Lagrange alpha/beta testing:

fdroidrepos://raw.githubusercontent.com/skyjake/lagrange-fdroid/master/fdroid/repo?fingerprint=46AEA2F2D86047AD65DA955126C6532F79B05AF2BFEFFC5CF1B467A79E686F86

Configuring this was a bit of an adventure, but it seems to work now?

Currently it has the latest build (1.10a3) that you may already have installed. Let's see how well this works once I post a new build at some point.

We must all start calling these little squares "Unicode tofu" it's the best new name for something this year.

If every toy programming language integrated nicely with OS package managers instead of hand rolling their own language specific package manager then things like leftpad and the more recent npm issue would be a lot less likely to occur.

I think new generations are intimidated by existing systems and reinvent them.

Starting back up working on the Small Web after working on native elementary OS apps for the past three/four months and it feels weird picking up from where I left off… thank goodness past me documented everything he had planned in the readme. I guess it’s just up to present me to learn everything he knew again and implement it :)

Apparently all you have to do to lead humanity off the edge off a cliff is to leave a trail of shiny trinkets to its precipice.

Spent couple of evenings in RBR.

The only real reason I see to boot DR2.0 is to play an odd RX or go sightseeing across gorgeous locations.

Both RBR and DR2.0 are awesome but RBR feels way more unforgiving to wrong inputs.

GitHub Actions are free for public repositories and can be also scheduled with a cron-syntax.

This can prove useful for running periodic jobs without maintaining a server.

@groovestomp also they give whole two weeks to complete a rally, but once one start a leg one must finish it:

I think it's literally a sign to get into rallying, especially since this stuff has word "Junior" in it... and it's a literal first season ever.
