As part of the plan we have setup for Debian LTS, there's this offer that we created for companies that can't contribute human resources but prefer to bring some financial support. My company (Freexian) will collect the money from all contributing companies and will use it to pay Debian developers providing security updates for Debian 6. On top of this, all companies get a number of benefits from subscribing to this service. Check out the page for details and support the initiative now! Share this widely. TIA.
So the desktop option for $1200 USD gets you - the board - a nifty case - a 1920x1080 screen - (hopefully) free 2d/3d graphics drivers for a completely free system - gpio breakout board - a flash ROM snooping pcb - a UHF-band software defined radio (300MHz-3.8GHz)
And it should be shipping in December, just in time for Christmas and linux.conf.auckland!

What's best practice with mac randomisation these days? Is it just for random probing of untrusted networks? Can you still rely on a single device presenting the same mac to your wifi router when it connects? (If not, what's best practice for identifying a device if you want to limit which devices can connect to your wifi?)
Hi friends! So if you have a little time to help out a struggling indie game developer - and you have an iOS device - I would really really appreciate it! My new game Space Bot Alpha is out on the App Store, and just got a feature at 9th position in worldwide paid strategy games.
But I could still submerge without a trace, and I would love it if you have time to help me seize this opportunity. Read more (and maybe snag some promo codes) here:
In various talks about the FreedomBox project, I've mentioned my excitement about the Novena platform... a fully open design laptop project. I have one of the current prototype circuit boards, and it's a very cool piece of hardware... If you want one too, you need to act quickly, as the campaign over on Crowd Supply ends soon!
