Does anyone (e.g. +Lee Damon) know if the Lightning Talks at #LISA15 were caught on video, and if so if they'll be made available online?

I'm trying to expand on the ideas I had during mine to make it into a full presentation, but as usual I can't remember half of what I said.

12.5K, three redline notes plus a "get the 2e systems from the developer".

I'm good at this shit. And +Michelle Lyons-McFarland is a great developer. :)

RAINN (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network) is the nation's largest anti-sexual violence organization and was named one of "America's 100 Best Charities" by Worth magazine.

RAINN created and operates the National Sexual Assault Hotline (800.656.HOPE and online.rainn.org) in partnership with more than 1,100 local sexual assault service providers across the country and operates the DoD Safe Helpline for the Department of Defense. RAINN also carries out programs to prevent sexual violence, help victims and ensure that rapists are brought to justice.

The DriveThru sites, have raised funds for organizations such as Doctors Without Borders, The Hero Initiative, and The Red Cross in previous Bundles and are thrilled to be working with several dozen publishers to offer 3 exciting charity Bundles to raise funds for RAINN. Additionally, customers can donate directly to RAINN using the Pay What You Want feature while shopping for their favorite games and comics.

The three RAINN Bundles will be available until Monday 9/21 and the PWYW option to donate to RAINN will be available on all DriveThru sites going forward.

CHARIOT is an RPG set in Atlantis as described by the Theosophists, in the last days of a decadent empire. It's written by someone who knows his shit both about the setting and as a game designer, and if it funds high enough I might get to write about Atlantean technology.

You want this. Back it now.
As Atlantis falls, how will you use your fate? Where will you stand in the face of the coming wave? | Crowdfunding is a democratic way to support the fundraising needs of your community. Make a contribution today!

disable UseRoaming in your config.

echo "UseRoaming no" | sudo tee -a /etc/ssh/ssh_config

or

echo "UseRoaming no" >>~/.ssh/config

or both.

If you only connect to save ssh servers you should be fine, but this bug
could be exploited to disclose private keys.

Not sure why a test feature was enabled by default, especially one that
can leak private keys.

UseRoaming looks to me like something that should explicitly be disabled by default in the config files just to be sure.

The patch is removing the parts that start up roaming in the client.

Inspired by other people:

Tell me which fictional character reminds you of me.

No need to say why.

The 200 Word RPG Contest didn’t start out as a contest, but simply as a fun exercise to force me to finish a game I was working on at the time. However, a lot of people picked up on it, and j…

The food took over two and a half hours to arrive, and was stone cold when we finally got it. We phoned repeatedly to find out what was going on and was just told "it'll be right with you" for an hour and a half. The guy on the phone was actively evasive when pressed for any idea of an actual time. Ordered banana bread, but it wasn't in the delivery, no apology or explanation given. Meat in the doro wat was mostly inedible gristle. The sauce was supposed to be spicy but had almost no flavour at all.
