Some, um, "interesting" design features here. I suspect +Dave Chinner might enjoy this, for some value of enjoy.

Yup, I wouldn't expect any less from a TVR. :P

Only ten more days to get talks in folks, and the deadline is not going to be extended.
 
Tell us how you’re shaping the Future of Open Source. The linux.conf.au 2017 Call for Proposals is now open!

linux.conf.au 2017 is a conference where people gather to learn about the entire world of Free and Open Source Software, directly from the people who shape the projects and topics that they’re presenting on.

If you’re working with Free and Open Source Software, Open Hardware, if you’re exploring openness in a field outside of technology, or if you’re doing something that you think will be interesting to people interested in Open Source, we want to hear from you!

Our CFP is open until Friday 5 August. Find out what we’re looking for in talk, tutorial, and miniconf proposals, and how to submit your proposal at https://linux.conf.au/proposals

The weird behaviour of the day award goes to X11.
I have a laptop and a desktop system (as well as a bunch of other crap, but let's ignore that for a moment). Both laptop and desktop are running openSUSE Tumbleweed. I'm usually in front of my desktop, with dual screens, a nice keyboard and trackball, and the laptop is sitting with the lid ...

I particularly like the "Foot-Shooting Prevention Agreement" and the "AES Crib Sheet (Handy for memorizing)".

Pirate Party Australia is running Senate candidates in NSW, QLD and VIC, plus a HoR candidate in the seat of Bennelong.

All your arguments sound reasonable to me. If only there were more would(n't) be candidates with your honesty and integrity.

These were taken approximately here on April 24, 2016. More information about the Fagus can be found on the Parks & Wildlife Service web site

Yeah, it was a perfect day for it (an allegedly 2 hour round trip walk/hike that actually took 4 hours for a group of us)

This week is your last chance to get a talk or miniconf proposal in for linux.conf.au 2017!

Submissions for talks, tutorials, and miniconfs close on this Friday, 5 August. We do not expect to extend this deadline. You can find details on how to submit your proposals at https://linux.conf.au/proposals

This year, our theme is "The Future of Open Source". We're still interested in talks about new and exciting developments in every aspect of Free and Open Source Software, but we’ll also be focusing particularly on how the world of Open Source will look in the future.

If you’re working with Free and Open Source Software, Open Hardware, if you’re exploring openness in a field outside of technology, or if you’re doing something that you think will be interesting to people interested in Open Source, we want to hear from you!

You can read more about what we're looking for in our Call for Proposals, which can be found at https://linux.conf.au/proposals. Our CFP also contains details of what support we're able to provide for our speakers, including limited travel and accommodation support.

For more information on linux.conf.au 2017, visit our website, or send us an e-mail at team@hobart.lca2017.org

This thing is really nice - drag the various candidates around to generate your own how to vote card in advance.
Generate and print your own personalised below the line how-to-vote card for the 2016 Federal Election.

To my intense irritation I almost didn't post this, because I started getting twitchy about being wrong in public :-/
I've spent a reasonably long time with computers. I've been doing something with either software or hardware (mostly software) for pretty close to three quarters of my current lifespan. I started when I was about 10, but (perhaps unsurprisingly) nobody was paying me for my work yet then.

So much yes.  Being wrong is good - much better than not being anything.  It is a vital step to being right (or less wrong).
I hate that primary school testing has "pass/fail" - fail has such bad stigma.  "complete/incomplete" would be much better, particularly with an expectation and practice that most people get incomplete most of the time - and eventually complete.
Failure is not an option in open heart surgery, but in a great many places it is a very valuable option.
(please correct me if I'm wrong).

I've been reading The Archdruid Report regularly for a long time now, because unlike me, John Michael Greer posts every week and always writes something interesting. Given that we've got a federal election coming up in Australia and that I've mentioned one of JMG's notions on the current state ...

OOPS, THAT DIDN’T WORK -- a Tragedy in Three Acts, based on a true story

(If you're into IoT stuff, home automation or fancy lightbulbs, this one's for you)
As an experiment, I've written a play. It might be viable to perform in an actual theatre, provided there's a large screen with a projector that a few between-scene montage things can be played on. Failing that, we'll just have to run with a short film version.

+Douwe Reimerink nope I won't be selling it :-) Anyone who can run a Python script can use my onboarder (https://github.com/tserong/lifx-hacks/blob/master/onboard.py) gratis, then use either the official Android app for control, or can use LIFX's publicly documented protocol or one of their (now unmaintained) language libraries.

I did suggest to LIFX support that if they open sourced their Android app I'd be happy to fix the onboarding problem myself, but apparently "there are currently no plans to open source the LIFX app."
