Moar OPEN fonts!  \O/
 
As a font geek, I actually like this one. Nice job +Red Hat! 
Red Hat announced the release of Overpass, their own highway gothic font family designed by Delve Fonts. Overpass is available under terms of SIL Open Font License.

For just about al my UI needs I use the DejaVu family. My loyalty has been known to waver, though. 😗

I don't use Windows 10 but this looks like a useful resource for anyone who does. https://fix10.isleaked.com
If you're an Windows user and you're using the default settings, each time you start typing in search box in taskbar (to open an application or search for a file on your computer), your local search terms and location are sent to Microsoft, some of which advertise to you.

I love Geany, AsciiDoc and Asciidoctor, so I'd love to see an AsciiDoc equivalent of the following plugin.

"This plugin provides a real-time preview of rendered Markdown, that is, Markdown converted to HTML and inserted into an HTML template and loaded into a WebKit view."

As an utter non-coder, I wonder if I could hack something together? The polar ice caps might melt, but that's surely a small price to pay?  :D

AsciiDoc provides an option of compiling a document from multiple files. I wonder if you could write an "app" which could list the various files and allow you to tick a checkbox to nominate which of them are to be included. The aim would be to allow you to collate slightly different documents, while sharing content between them. This would be easy enough from the command line, but a GUI option would also be cool.  #asciidoctor   #asciidoc

What I love about RedPen (after looking over the web site for only a few minutes) as that you determine the validation rules to be applied.

I recently used Porteus, a live Linux distribution, to create a live USB key featuring Xfce. I'm amazed at how easy it was to create and how well it runs. Congratulations to the team.

Joe Ressington, Isaac Carter and Albert Hickey have teamed up to create “The Pi Podcast“. Their first episode is now online and is all to do with Ubuntu MATE, which is now available for the Pi. Listen to the podcast here.

Great video, Jared! Just a note that it is possible to hide the preview and file panes individually, or both. In the toolbar in the top left corner, click on the "Hide/Show Panels" button then select which pane(s) you want to hide. "Full Editor" is great for when you want to focus only on writing.

The AsciidocFX developers rock!

Is it possible to perform validation of AsciiDoc marked-up content? I know validation of the resulting output - HTML, DocBook etc - is possible, but what about the source? I'm thinking of errors such as level 2 titles which have no "parent" level 1 titles.

Hey - that looks awesome. I'll see if I can get it incorporated into Geany and other editors too.

Dear Lazyweb... Does anyone know of an Atom (editor) UI theme like Pseudo OSX as available for Sublime Text? I'm using Atom on Linux, but find the Pseudo OSX theme very good visually. I have trawled through the Atom themes site but can't yet find one that suits me best.

I heard on the weekend from someone about Life360, a phone app which is intended to make it easier for family members to "track" each other and send private messages. For example, a parent gets notification when their child has left school.

As a parent, I like the idea for the sake of my child's safety, but does this take things too far? Is that the equivalent of fitting someone with a tracking device? Should parents assume their parenting has been good enough to trust their children?
