Clearing out expired SIMs (mostly prepaid) from last couple yrs.. There must be an easier way. transatel-datasim.com seems to have good rates but poor coverage. Anyone with Global SIM experiences?

Attended talks in more devrooms this year than previously (virt/Iaas, embedded, design, legal, graphics, SDN/NFV), but still many more I would've liked to see. It seems that videos are being uploaded, there's already 60 available! #FOSDEM #FOSDEM2016
Videos are being assessed and processed at the moment. They are added here as they become ready. Total number of videos currently available: 60 Number Room ------- ---- 4 aw1120 10 aw1125 7 aw1126 6 h1301 14 h1308 11 h1309 8 janson Size Year ---- ---- 4.5G 2005 18G 2006 5.6G 2007 19G 2008 29G ...

New Blog post from +Jolla about #JollaTablet - Aiming for Closure.

1. #Jolla will ship 540 tablet units to Indiegogo backers starting from February.

2. Jolla aims to refund the total contribution, including shipping and all accessories, to the remaining contributors in two parts: first half during Q1/2016, the other half within a year.

More details, including a FAQ, in the blog: https://blog.jolla.com/jolla-tablet-closure/
Dear Jolla Tablet supporters and other Jolla followers …

#extremeweather #globalwarming
A massive winter storm clobbered the eastern United States on Saturday and in some places appeared poised to dump much more snow in than expected.

Have this set up with Xfce DE (since I have an old/slow Samsung chromebook series 3). Next I should try xiwi https://github.com/dnschneid/crouton/wiki/crouton-in-a-Chromium-OS-window-%28xiwi%29
 
I have not done this yet, but I am very curious to. 
Chromebooks have drastically changed the landscape of computing since their official release in May 2011. At the time many scoffed at the idea of both applications and user data residing in the cloud, as the use of web apps and cloud storage had not yet become an integral part of our daily experience. However, despite all of the criticisms laid on Chrome OS, the operating system has become very successful, so much so that it has influenced trends...
