XPS 13 Developer Edition Kaby Lake (9360): working great with Fedora 25

So, that post about not liking computers? Here’s a confession: I partly wrote it as some sort of weird preparation for buying myself another one. That is, the new Kaby Lake XPS 13 developer edition. I’ve been using a second-gen (L322X) XPS 13 developer edition for a few years now, and been generally happy with […]

I don’t like computers

Welp, I kinda gave up waxing personal on this blog a while ago, but what the hell, why not make an exception once in a while. So in the last couple of years I’ve been thinking about work and stuff a lot. For a while there I wondered if I was getting burned out; after […]

What just happened?

4pm: “Well, guess it’s time to write the F25 Final blocker status mail.” 4:10pm: “Yeesh, I guess I’d better figure out which of the three iSCSI blocker bugs is actually still valid, and maybe take a quick look at what the problem is.” 1:06am: “Well, I think I’m done fixing iSCSI now. But I seem […]

wikitcms, relval, fedfind and testdays moved to Pagure

Today I moved several of my pet projects from the cgit instance on this server to Pagure. You can now find them here: (python-)wikitcms relval fedfind testdays The home page URLs for each project on this server – e.g. https://www.happyassassin.net/fedfind – also now redirect to the Pagure project pages. I also deleted some other repos […]

LinuxFest NorthWest 2016

Time for another of my increasingly irregular blog posts 🙂 I was at LinuxFest NorthWest 2016 last weekend. I’ve been going to LFNW for several years now, and I look forward to it every year – it’s just a great conference, which has managed to grow to nearly 2000 registrations this year while keeping its […]

Possible outage notice

Hey folks! Power’s down here at Happyassassin Towers. My servers are on UPS for now, but if the outage goes on for more than an hour or so I’ll have to take them down to preserve the remaining UPS power to keep the internet connection up (so I can at least use my laptop). So […]

OpenWRT on Zyxel NBG6716 (ar71xx nand) – upgrading to Chaos Calmer final

Well, I’ve had an interesting day… I wrote before about using OpenWRT on the Zyxel NBG6716. I’ve been using it ever since; I updated to newer snapshot Chaos Calmer builds a couple of times to fix a couple of minor wifi bugs, but I’d been sitting on a fairly old snapshot (from March 2015) for […]

Flock 2015 pre-post-wrap-up

The oddest thing about events like Flock, for me, is how you can go to them for a week and manage not to see someone else who was there at all – apparently I was more or less in the same hotel as mclasen and kk4ewt for a week without once saying hi. Strange! I’ll […]

Fedlet 2015-08-10 available

So here’s a lil’ pre-Flock present for all you crazy Baytrail-ers – a new Fedlet image. Get your 2015-08-10 while it’s hot, over at the fedlet page. This is pretty much just a rebase of the kernel to 4.2rc6 in an F23 Alpha userland. I built a GTK+ package with a patch from Jan-Michael to […]

Fedora repository for Doom stuff: Odamex, Zandronum, Doomseeker, CnDoom

I had a bit of free time over the last few days, and looked at the current state of the art for Doom on Linux. The awesome Rahul Sundaram has been looking after several Doom-related packages for a while – including the Chocolate Doom package – but there are some things that seem to be […]
