Web Am I the only one out there who thinks this is an admission that Boycott Novell did it to themselves to get attention? Several blogs out there have already started talking about it so it seems to have worked.

Burying the truth? Boycott Novell hit by Denial of Service attack

Web Boycott Novell is one opinionated site. If you think I'm pro-Linux and hard on Microsoft, you haven't been reading Roy Schestowitz, who makes me look as mild as a May day. It's also made enemies.

Defining a New Community

Brian Proffitt: So far, the response to the new has been really positive and, save for a few glitches here and there, we've been very happy with how the launch has gone thus far. As we transition from launch mode to operations mode, it's worth taking a little time to reflect on what we're going to be doing on Still Unhelpful for New Users

Web, which was taken over recently by the Linux Foundation and received a major overhaul, has gone live. Unfortunately, like the old, the site is not a very intuitive resource for beginners.

Slackware Live Edition – Beta 2

  • Slackware Live Edition – Beta 2
    Thanks for all the valuable feedback on the first public beta of my Slackware Live Edition. It allowed me to fix quite a few bugs in the Live scripts (thanks again!), add new functionality (requested by you or from my own TODO) and I took the opportunity to fix the packages in my Plasma 5 repository so that its Live Edition should actually work now.
  • Updated multilib packages for -current
  • (Hopefully) final recompilations for KDE 5_15.11
    There was still some work to do about my Plasma 5 package repository. The recent updates in slackware-current broke several packages that were still linking to older (and no longer present) libraries which were part of the icu4c and udev packages.

Leftovers: Software

  • Resuming work on Yokadi
    A few weeks ago we started working again on Yokadi, our command-line oriented, todo list. We are now finally ready to release version 1.0. This new version fixes a few bugs but does not bring new features. This lack of new features is actually a conscious decision: we wanted to make changes under the hood, and doing changes under the hood at the same time as adding new features is often a recipe for disaster.
  • remctl 3.10
    remctl is a simple and secure remote command execution protocol using GSS-API. Essentially, it's the thinnest and simplest possible way to deploy remote network APIs for commands using Kerberos authentication and encryption.
  • rra-c-util 5.9
    A minor release of my C utility library, including some changes required for the previous release of pam-afs-session and the upcoming release of remctl.
  • Feeding Emacs
    For the past fifteen years, I have been tweaking my ~/.emacs continously, most recently by switching to Spacemacs. With that switch done, I started to migrate a few more things to Emacs, an Atom/RSS reader being one that's been in the queue for years - ever since Google Reader shut down. Since March 2013, I have been a Feedly user, but I wanted to migrate to something better for a long time. I wanted to use Free Software, for one.
