git repos online

An not-so-recent discussion on various repositories, led me to the GNU Ethical Criteria.

This prompted me to re-evaluate what I use myself, and I have ended up reordering my preferences to

Cancer in our Communities

Communities contain cancer cells too!

Just like the cancer cells in human bodies, there can be individuals/cabals cancerous to communities.. online and offline. Some say that cancerous cells are present in all bodies, but remain mutant and repressed in healthy bodies. When the body loses control over cancerous cells, they can take down the entire body, even to it's death. This similarity extends to communities too.

Google News redesign?

The recent Google News redesign is terrible, atrocious, not fit for purpose... and the internet is fuming. But does the Big G care? Apparently not! It's their road, or the highway. We noticed an attitude, when Google Reader was killed. And when Google Plus was introduced (nay, imposed) for everyone. Every Android version effectively deprecates every device on an older Android version. That's the price for wanting to live with Google. Use them, but depend on them. Yeah, and before you forget.. Don't be evil!

ccze making console life colourful

I discovered ccze a few days ago, while looking for something else. And suddenly my console experience has become more richer and fruitier ;) Like me, if you too (like to) spend more time on the console, and like a little bit of colour, you will love ccze.

gentoo low-power binary-package server

This thought has been circulating in my head for a while now. And again I'm flushing my thoughts here.. and perhaps make them more coherent later.

I want to have a low-power device like the Pi perhaps, to compile gentoo packages and distribute to other computers at home. Almost all devices are mobile devices and laptops, much more powerful than the Pi, but not only online occasionally.
