A review of the +System76 Sable all-in-one:

http://www.adventuresinoss.com/2015/04/18/review-system-76-sable/

I learned about System76 when they sponsored +Bad Voltage at the +Southern California Linux Expo this year.
As you might guess, I am a big fan of all things open, and I tend to vote with my wallet. When the need arose to replace some iMacs in the office, I decided to check out the Sable systems offered by Linux-friendly vendor System 76. System 76 was a sponsor at SCaLE this year (like OpenNMS) and ...

Hey gang, if you are in the east coast, I think a few post offices are still open if you need to get your taxes in. If you have already done them, may I suggest an Income Tax Cocktail as a reward?

http://forgottencocktails.com/?p=401
1.50 ounces gin; 0.75 ounce dry vermouth; 0.75 ounce sweet vermouth; Juice of 1/4 orange (squeezed right in the shaker); 2 dashes Angostura Bitters. Shake in an iced cocktail shaker and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with an orange wheel. The Income Tax cocktail is also known as the ...

Listening to +Jason Hibbets​ at +POSSCON​ talk about building communities using the open source way demonstrated by +Opensource.com

He's soldiering on despite the rude +Miller Lite​ truck driver idling his delivery truck outside the presentation. You think the driver would get a clue.

Just scored some locally made brandy from +Fair Game Beverage Company Wine and Spirits .

I think it will work well in place of the Calvados in one of my favorite vintage cocktails, the Golden Dawn.

It's been a long week. Good, but long. 

I was flattered that +Jono Bacon referred to me as "Open Source OG". For some reason it reminded me of this song. It's amazing, almost like an anthem, but I never heard it on the radio.

Working with open source people and open source projects often makes me feel "7XL".

I wonder if Avirex jackets will ever make a comeback?

I think I would have been more eager to open up this letter from +AXA Insurance if there was an #ingress  code for a shield or three.

Still looked, but didn't find one.

♫ Hope you don't mind if I sit this one out ♫

Well, I do mind. When the local library was selling bricks to raise money, I thought +OpenNMS should get one.

http://www.adventuresinoss.com/2015/04/07/%E2%99%AB-to-be-thick-as-a-brick-%E2%99%AB/

We also got one at the new Tesla Museum being built in New York. I hope +Jeremy Garcia can swing by when it opens and get us a picture.
In keeping with the musical theme this week, I thought it would be cool to post about a little bit of OpenNMS “bling” now featured at the Chatham County Public Library in Pittsboro, NC. OpenNMS Brick. We like to both talk about OpenNMS as well as support the local community, so when I found out ...

The TL;DR of it is that I needed to create a new forum called OpenNMS Connect. This will be a place for Luna. So far I've been happy. When I first started my quest for forum software a couple of month ago, I did what most geeks do and did a search for it. I found a very helpful Wikipedia page ...

I've wanted to create my own forum software for artists / creative types for some time. I lack the programming skill / time though. Tried phpbb once and it was very popular with the 1 click script kiddies. :/
