Just plonked down serious dough for one of these babies. Mmmm. R programming and writing on a customizable, open keyboard.
Keyboardio is raising funds for The Model 01: an heirloom-grade keyboard for serious typists on Kickstarter! With a hardwood body, mechanical switches & custom-sculpted keycaps, it's a dream to type on. It comes with source code & a screwdriver

Haha. Oh I think I would be in geek heaven if I got to try out keyboards from an actual enthusiast. I don't collect keyboards, and my knowledge of ergonomic design on them would pale in comparison to you.

There was a moment where I almost bought a FrogPad and only stopped because the company was clearly not going to deliver. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FrogPad

I have a JACK Audio setup for my desktop at home for audio production purposes, but pulseaudio stops working on resume from suspend. The fix is to restart pulseaudio. A simple script for this should work and scripts to run after resume reside in /etc/pm/sleep.d

Here is my 20_pulseaudio script in that dir. You have to make it executeable by chmod 755 on it of course:

#!/bin/sh

case "${1}" in
    resume | thaw)
        su kaeru pulseaudio -k

+Ang Chin Han​​ but not much use for audio production without Jack. Jack allows you to plug and mix different sources.
eg.
Mic -> Equalizer -> Track 1
MIDI Controller -> Synth Rack -> Line Out -> Track 2
Master track -> Calf EQ -> Calf Reverb

You can't do that with Pulseaudio (all mixed into one stream).

It does lower barrier for those that want to sequence or arrange existing recorded tracks though.

Indian Government releases draft policy on Open Source. This is a big day for open source in India. It is a well written policy, that says government must use open source, and justification must be given if proprietary/closed source software is to be used. http://deity.gov.in/sites/upload_files/dit/files/policy_on_adoption_of_oss.pdf

After 4.5 years in the making, +Inkscape 0.91 is out. We shot a quick video demonstration of 10 personal favorite new features and interviewed developers.
Over 4 years in the making, thousands of commits, dozens of new features: it's all there, neatly packed in the newly released Inkscape 0.91.

So this Sunday was spent on much delayed clean install of FreeBSD 10.1. My BSD setup has seen continuous upgrades on the same drives since 4.6. Needless to say, there was a lot of old junk that was causing strange problems.

New features include the new http://bhyve.org VM system.

It was quick and painless to get everything I need up and running, mostly because almost all config files in FreeBSD which sticks to Unix roots, are text files with verbose man files. It's relatively easy to copy and diff the differences. Things just work, and when they don't are easy to trouble shoot, you look at logs, look up the man page and change some text files in /etc. Sure there is a lot of new tech and features, but it all feels comfortably familiar.

Do look at FreeBSD http://www.freebsd.org and give it a try. It works well even on very old hardware as a server.

Pfft. I just bought Bioshock Infinite, along with a few other games during the Summer Sale. Whether I have time to play them is another matter.

Maybe I can rent out my computer to make back some of the money.

I usually recommend developers wanting to start learning Unix/Linux that they should start with FreeBSD. The reason is the excellent Handbook which allow you to configure while learning and also the excellent man pages complete with step by step instructions and examples.

If you just went to get going, with a GUI sure, Linux is easier, but then you miss out on all the basics. As a user, I use Linux, but when I want to learn I use FreeBSD.
Starting with FreeBSD 10.0-RELEASE, the bhyve BSD -licensed hypervisor is part of the base system. This hypervisor supports a number of guests, including FreeBSD, OpenBSD, and many Linux® distributions. Currently, bhyve only supports a serial console and does not emulate a graphical console.
