It is that time of the year when Wikipedia asks for a contribution

I received an email from Wikipedia, as I made a donation one year ago.
And I thought, well, why not…

Ended up, as I did last year, to go on another site to make a donation, and another one.

My list for this year is:

  • Mozilla Foundation
  • Gentoo
  • Debian
  • Wikipedia (of course)
  • Free Software Foundation

Plenty of good causes to contribute to!

Ugrade from Wheezy to Jessie

The time has come to upgrade my BanaPi (running Bananian) from Debian 7 (Wheezy) to Debian 8 (Jessie).
I am thankful for the amazing documentation. It’s going to be fun.

Other small projects I am running at the moment: solve a kernel panic on a Gentoo box, set up services on various VMs that I am running for experiment/fun/learning.

Study for my certifications and working on different Linux projects, this is a good way to spend a Satuday isn’t it?
But then I deserve a nice dinner out with my gf.

Gentoo

It’s quite fun if I think to it: I am pretty sure one of the old posts on the old version of my website was about me having fun installing Gentoo.

And now, here I am again: having fun with Gentoo.
Just created a VM and going to run again through the amazing documentation and the Gentoo Wiki.

For science!

Speaking of the old website, I need to find time to either import it into WordPress or just convert and link to the static version, which may be a lot easier…

 

Podcast fun

This is a bit new to me.

In the past I rarely had time to listen to anything going to work. And to be fair I had nothing, as in a device or a player, that would make it easier to play podcasts.

Now I am quite enjoying to listen to podcasts on my way to work. Most of them are related to Linux, this is my (little) list so far in an absolutely random order:

Any suggestion is more than welcome.

a fresh start

 “If something is going to happen to me, I want to be there.”
Albert Camus, The Stranger

I needed a fresh start, a change of air.

It has been almost two years since I started a new chapter and moved to a different place, different life.
Today I am starting from scratch the website too, took me a bit to find time for this.

As always, it is going to be a work in progress.
