.oO it's software freedom day!
it feels a little ahead of the right date, but I'm not one to pass a free software celebration
let's make it a fortnight-ish freedom fest, from today through to Sept 27 (GNU launched, FS coined), and on to Oct 4 (FSF founded)

.oO two years ago, I lived the saddest day in my life of free software activism. months of pain followed. I'm still shocked anyone who shares our values could think we'd better behead movement, lead org and lead project over free speech, grudges and lies

Wow. The course the OER Foundation is currently facilitating for 1200ish educators concentrated in the South Pacific, is running on a USD50/month Digital Ocean droplet. The initiation of the course, when you'd expect max resource hit is showing ~ 10% *peak* (CPU & Memory) resource use on that system. That suggests our infrastructure could easily handle 10x more learners or 10k learners. So that suggests a per learner cost of USD0.005/month. I'd say that's pretty cost-effective.

Why you do not use XMPP?

Please share your opinions.

I have quite the opposite experience. XMPP clients are fast and reliable on any desktop OS or Android while Matrix clients are slow and drain battery. The only problem I have with XMPP is that there is no good client for iPhones.

I just want to highlight again how groundbreaking the pinephone_modem_sdk repository is. I am unaware of any other project that can flash the secondary operating system on a cell modem. Wow! github.com/Biktorgj/pinephone_ Did I mention the project is GPLv3 as well?

Exactly ten years ago today on September 12 2011 Alexandre Oliva (the maintainer of Linux-libre) posted the announcement that my APT repository for Linux-libre was available, saying "Jason Self's Freesh apt repository carries binary .debs for 32- and 64-bit x86 systems, and support for more architectures is planned. Thanks!" It was named Freesh as the intention is to always serve up freshly-baked kernels that respect your freedom. It has since expanded to twelve supported CPU architectures.

.oO let's celebrate the 10th anniversary of #Freesh, the .deb distribution of #GNU #Linux-libre for multiple architectures maintained by Jason Self. please join me in thanking Jason for his tireless work for Free Software
