#Taiwan is on the brink of legalizing same-sex marriage, but the legislative fight now hangs in the balance. Taiwan would be the first Asian country to do so were the bill to pass, but both sides are now mobilizing and it could go either way.

I'll be troubleshooting and filing bugs. Wish me luck ;)
Fedora 25 Beta has been released! Get it while it's hot. Find the download links and read more in the Fedora Magazine.

Could someone from AMD please get the www.x86-64.org server back up again? Not being able to refer to the latest version of the x86-64 ABI by URL is really bugging me >_<

The PowerShell Remoting Protocol over SSH part seems actually useful. I'd use it for managing Windows build machines for cross-platform projects if nothing else.
