Dear +Lenovo - I just got email from you saying "you asked and we listened - trackpad buttons are back [on the new carbon x-1]".

I formally and publicly request that you make old-style trackpads with buttons an option for existing laptops like the T440s. This is not a warranty request - I would be willing to pay for the trackpad and installation, or install it myself if it is a CRU. Please respond. Posting on Facebook and Google+.

The new T450s had the physical buttons, too. Glad to see this trend.

I have worked for and with Dave, and would highly recommend the experience :)
I'm looking to hire some open source Software engineers in Oregon or Silicon Valley and also in Bucharest, Romania. The focus is on server runtime optimization. This is definitely open source work, and would be great for people who have worked on performance optimization or compilers. If you or someone you know would be interested, I would love to hear from you! Check, click on "Advanced Search" and look for Job numbers 750390 and 750392 for the US openings. Search for job number 746261 for Romania. Or just drop me a note!

Wish I could be there. If you are going, please consider volunteering.
If you can lend a hand before or during FOSDEM we would really appreciate it!
With FOSDEM just around the corner, it is time for us to enlist your help. Every year, an enthusiastic band of volunteers helps us make FOSDEM a fun and safe place for all our attendees. We could not do this without you. This year we again need as many hands as possible, especially during the ...

Have had it with thunderbird, and following new years resolution to stop arguing with software. Now trying emClient on Windows, not sure what to try on Linux - may go back to mutt, dwell in a cave, make fire with sticks.

Jeff, when you figure it out let me know Thunderbird is regularly crashing on me and ate mail over the break.

Can that possibly be the whole thing?  Looks pretty compact to me...Oh, probably that's just the CPU, right?  (lacking I/O processors such as card or tape readers, washing-machine sized hard drives, line printer...)

Greetings All! I have started a small fundraiser in the name of my father, Patrick J. Anders, to purchase new shelves and storage bins for the +The National Museum of Computing. On a recent trip i was made aware of the fact that they needed help with storage and organizing of all of the spare parts and one of kind tech items that are important to the history of computing. i am matching one dollar for one dollar, up to $1000, to achieve the goal of a total of $2000. if you can donate i would greatly appreciate it!

"When a woman speaks in a professional setting … either she’s barely heard or she’s judged as too aggressive. When a man says virtually the same thing, heads nod in appreciation for his fine idea."

How do you fix a no-win situation?
I read “Speaking While Female” in the NY Times today, and felt a mixture of recognition, relief, frustration, and depression. Recognition – the stories told were all too familiar. Relief – that it wasn't just me. Frustration – that nobody else seems to have solved the problem either.

Embedded Linux Conference CFP ending soon
This is the premier embedded Linux event in the US. It is a great opportunity to participate. 

Here is the original CFP:

The CE Workgroup of the Linux Foundation would like to invite you
to make a presentation at our upcoming Embedded Linux Conference.
The conference will be held March 23 - 25 in San Jose, California.
The theme for this year is "Drones, Things and Automobiles", and
we're excited to discuss some new areas where embedded Linux is
really taking off! (pun intended :-)

For general information about the conference, See

For information about the call for participation, see

Please note the guidelines on the CFP page.  It's usually pretty obvious
when we're reviewing the abstracts, as a program committee, who has
read the guidelines and who hasn't. :-)

ELC is the premier vendor-neutral technical conference for
embedded Linux developers. The conference is open to the public.

= Guidelines =
Presentations should be of a technical nature, covering topics
related to use of Linux in embedded systems.  Topics related to
consumer electronics are particularly encouraged, but any
proposals about Linux that are of general relevance to most
embedded developers are welcome.

Presentations that are commercial advertisements or sales
pitches are not appropriate for this conference.

Especially encouraged this year are talks in the following

 * Linux in Automotive
 * Drones and Robots
 * Linux in the Internet of Things

And we'd also love to hear your proposals in the following topic
areas as well:

 * Audio, Video, Streaming Media, and Graphics
 * Security
 * System size, Boot speed, and Real-Time Performance
 * Flash Memory Devices and Filesystems
 * Build Systems, Embedded Distributions, and Development tools
 * Mobile Phones, DVRs, TVs, Cameras, etc.
 * Practical Experiences and War Stories
 * Standards

Most presentation slots will be 50 minutes long, including time for

Tutorials, demos, and Birds-of-a-Feather sessions may also be

The deadline for submissions is midnight January 9, 2015 PDT.

To repeat, for additional info and details for making a proposal, see

I look forward to seeing your great ideas and projects,

 -- Tim Bird
 CEWG Architecture Group Chair,
 Program Committee Chair for ELC

Open source developers, designers, technical writers, et al take note! CFP is now open for #OSCON  2015.

2014 was the biggest and best yet with many firsts including Kids Day and video recordings of every session. 2015 is looking even better.

Great new FREE training materials from our friends at Free Electrons, using the ubiquitous BeagleBone Black:
Free Electrons has posted free training materials on building an embedded Linux project using Yocto Project and OpenEmbedded on a BeagleBone Black.

Well done. Now I have a little more material to incorporate into my training classes, the one I'm doing since 2009 using Openembedded and more recently focusing on Yocto Project.
