I love mornings. A new day begins, and I have no idea what it holds.

Happy September. My Linux-libre APT repository is 10 years old this month, having started in September 2011 and still going strong with 10 supported architectures: amd64, arm64, armhf, i386, m68k, or1k, powerpc, ppc64, ppc64el, riscv64, s390x, sparc64: jxself.org/linux-libre/

Part of our core mission is to advance policies that promote the progress of free software. Copyright handling has been a topic of concern lately, so we are taking this opportunity to delve into the issue, and alternatives: u.fsf.org/3fu

GNU Linux-libre version 5.14 is now available in my APT repository! jxself.org/linux-libre
Enjoy!

To avoid any confusion, I'm *not* retiring my Linux-libre APT repository. That continues to exist and I have no plans to stop: jxself.org/linux-libre/

In light of the software freedom problems found in Linux-libre (see fsfla.org/pipermail/linux-libr), which goes back years, I have killed off my git repository: jxself.org/git/?p=linux-libre. in order to not be distributing non-free software. My understanding is that, at some as-yet-unknown future point, there will be a replacement in the form of a history rewrite of upstream's git history, which seems a better thing to have anyway rather than just the releases, so mine's not coming back.

One of the cats overate on the tuna and vomited. On the carpet, of course. Time to dig out the carpet shampooer...

It appears that I'll be doing a lot of kernel things today...

The weather in Southern California seems quite nice. Supposed to hit 90F or about 32C. I think I'm going for a swim!

@o0karen0o Naomi Wu got the code!

Notice employee's reaction to that. Also those "we"'s... so smart.

The weather seems like it will be perfect today. This seems a good time to go to the rooftop garden for some fresh air, in search of the sun's rays.

(To the tune of Here Comes Santa Claus): "Here comes Colin cat, here comes Colin cat, walking across my bed..."

I have so much stuff going on that it's hard to keep up with all the things happening. But I'm working really hard, and I think everything will be okay!

Diversity is the future. We are all different, and we need each other.

Stand-out episode, gave me strong feels. Stories of "essential workers" and what they have gone through, not the medical ones, the others
