I was looking for #debian related pictures I had posted elsewhere and found this.

Which *is* debian related, as it was taken during DebConf15

Happy late #DebianDay, anyway

Happy Birthday, Debian. 🎂 🎉 🎈
25 years old.

Ian Murdock announced #Debian on August 16th 1993. The first release, 0.01, was made the next month, on September 15th.

Congratulations & thanks to the Debian volunteers, past and present, for making it such a fantastic distro. Here's to the next 25 years.

XMPP Notifications for Freedombone


This is from the Freedombone blog:
Another of the features I'd wanted to add to Freedombone for a long time was server notifications via XMPP, and now that has been added. This is for things like notification that an upgrade or security test has failed or that the tripwire has been triggered. Previously those notifications were only via email, but I'm not very obsessive about email and rarely check it, whereas instant messages are much more likely to get my attention.
The security policy for XMPP chat was previously set such that end-to-end security was required, but it was difficult to automatically send out an OMEMO encrypted message from the server and so I've had to downgrade end-to-end security to being optional. This is not ideal, but the tradeoff between having to deal with folks trying to send me plaintext messages and being promptly alerted if something has failed on the server is probably worth it. Longer term I'd like to figure out if I can automatically generate OMEMO messages and then I can return to a better security policy.
The main factor which delayed the implementation of this was the question of needing to generate a separate XMPP account on the server to push out notifications. I didn't really want there to be a permanent separate account with a password lingering around somewhere which could become a possible security vulnerability. The solution to this was to generate an ephemeral account purely for the purpose of sending a single message. A new notification XMPP account gets created with a random password, sends the message and then about one second later the account is deleted. Even if the account credentials were to leak during the sending of a plaintext message they can't subsequently be useful to a potential adversary.
Another addition to the notifications system is being able to send a webcam photo if the USB canary is triggered. The purpose of that is to answer the paranoid question "Is anyone trying to mess with the server while I'm not at home?" if you're out shopping or at work. The particular threat model is known as evil maid. If you're running Freedombone on an old laptop and have a secondary webcam plugged it it will preferentially use that, so that you can set up the field of view appropriately. Not many people will need this level of physical device security, but it's nice to have the option. Also if you have the Syncthing app installed then any USB canary photo will be synced to the admin account.

Dreaming of a Job to Promote Love, Empathy and sexual Freedom


(interesting article by Debian developer Sam Hartman)
Debian has always been filled with people who want to make the world a better place. We consider the social implications of our actions. Many are involved in work that focuses on changing the world. I’ been hesitant to think too closely about how that applies to me: I fear being powerless to bring about the world in which I would like to live.
Recently though, I've been taking the time to dream. One day my wife came home and told another story of how she’d helped a client reduce their pain and regain mobility. I was envious. Every day she advances her calling and brings happiness into the world, typically by reducing physical suffering. What would it be like for me to find a job where I helped advance my calling and create a world where love could be more celebrated. That seems such a far cry from writing code and working on software design every day. But if I don’t articulate what I want, I'll never find it.
I’ve been working to start this journey by acknowledging the ways in which I already bring love into the world. One of the most important lessons of Venus’s path is that to bring love into the world, you have to start by leading a life of love. At work I do this by being part of a strong team. We’re there helping each other grow, whether it is people trying entirely new jobs or struggling to challenge each other and do the best work we can. We have each other’s back when things outside of work mean we're not at our best. We pitch in together when the big deadlines approach.
I do not shove my personal life or my love and spirituality work in people’s faces, but I do not hide it. I'm there as a symbol and reminder that different is OK. Because I am open people have turned to me in some unusual situations and I have been able to invite compassion and connection into how people thought about challenges they faced.
This is the most basic—most critical love work. In doing this I’m already succeeding at bringing love into the world. Sometimes it is hard to believe that. Recently I have been daring to dream of a job in which the technology I created also helped bring love into the world.
I'd love to find a company that's approaching the world in a love-positive, sex-positive manner. And of course they need to have IT challenges big enough to hire someone who is world class at networking, security and cloud architecture. While I'd be willing to take a pay cut for the right job, I'd still need to be making a US senior engineer's salary.
Actually saying that is really hard. I feel vulnerable because I’m being honest about what I want. Also, it feels like I’m asking for the impossible.
Yet, the day after I started talking about this on Facebook, OkCupid posted a job for a senior engineer. That particular job would require moving to New York, something I want to avoid. Still, it was reassuring as a reminder that asking for what you want is the first step.
I doubt that will be the only such job. It's reasonable to assume that as we embrace new technologies like blockchains and continue to appreciate what the evolving web platform standards have to offer, there will be new opportunities. Yes, a lot of the adult-focused industries are filled with corruption and companies that use those who they touch. However, there's also room for approaching intimacy in a way that celebrates desire, connection, and all the facets of love.
And yes, I do think sexuality and desire are an important part of how I’d like to promote love. With platforms like Facebook, Amazon and Google, it's easier than ever for people to express themselves, to connect, and if they are willing to give up privacy, to try and reach out and create. Yet all of these platforms have increasingly restrictive rules about adult content. Sometimes it’s not even intentional censorship. My first post about this topic on Facebook was marked as spam probably because some friends suggested some businesses that I might want to look at. Those businesses were adult-focused and apparently even positive discussion of such businesses is now enough to trigger a presumption of spam.
If we aren't careful, we're going to push sex further out of our view and add to an ever-higher wall of shame and fear. Those who wish to abuse and hurt will find their spaces, but if we aren't careful to create spaces where sex can be celebrated alongside love, those seedier corners of the Internet will be all that explores sexuality. Because I'm willing to face the challenge of exploring sexuality in a positive, open way, I think I should: few enough people are.
I have no idea what this sort of work might look like. Perhaps someone will take on the real challenge of creating content platforms that are more decentralized and that let people choose how they want content filtered. Perhaps technology can be used to improve the safety of sex workers or eventually to fight shame associated with sex work. Several people have pointed out the value of cloud platforms in allowing people to host whatever service they would choose. Right now I’m at the stage of asking for what I want. I know I will learn from the exploration and grow stronger by understanding what is possible. And if it turns out that filling my every day life with love is the answer I get, then I’ll take joy in that. Another one of the important Venus lessons is celebrating desires even when they cannot be achieved.

Back from Greece


Go to the original news post

Good news, everyone!

I'm on my way back from Greece to Munich right now and it's time for another new update!

And it's not just about the cases...

So, what happened in Greece?

Three things actually...

1. Discussing the production run with FormAction


As you know, FormAction will produce 500 sets of the transparent cases.
As the seem to be finished and okay now, they will start as soon as possible.
However, they also have other customers and will close down August 1st for a full month.

So we made the deal with them that they will produce as many as they can and afterwards, we'll move the molds over to UniquePlast, the new company.

Some of you might have noticed that I said "seem to be finished" - are they or aren't they?
Well, I didn't find the time to fully assemble a Pyra yet with the latest set of cases I received.
However, as the only fix were the shoulder buttons and the stlylus, I tested these and they were fine.
Everything else WAS already okay and hasn't changed, so that should be fine.

Still, I will assemble a full Pyra during the weekend to make 100% sure it's okay.

You should be able to buy transparent Pyra cases in August - with immediate delivery, if you like :)

2. Discussing the logo plate


If you read my last news, you already know that the logo wasn't made of anodized aluminium but instead was painted black.
This looks awful and is certainly not what we want.

So what was the problem here?

Well, apparently, it's nigh impossible getting anodized aluminium in Greece.
There's just no real demand for it there and therefore, it's a material that can't be bought there.

They will still try to find a source, but if they can't find any, we'll use brushed stainless steel.
This looks nice and I can also imagine that it looks neat as well on a black shell.
The logo itself will be milky white until you switch on the LEDs, so it fits well inside the metal plate.

We won't let a metal plate cause us any delays, that's for sure!

3. Upcoming production with UniquePlast


The last thing I had to do in Greece was discussing the upcoming production run of the Pyra case with UniquePlast.
Especially with different plastic materials, etc.
They're very experienced with different colors (and have many of them in stock). I think you will be very pleased with the final case the Pyra will have!

We could now also mix different colors together, for example, have the keyboard part a different color than the lid, etc.
Time to resurrect the old thread with the different color themes to see what we can do to make it look good, eh?

Anyways, they're also on holidays from August 1st until August 21st, so nothing will happen during that time.
So we're planning to move the molds there end of August / early September so that the cases can be produced in September.

BTW: It's not the first time I'm working with them.
They are also producing all my MegaDrive, SNES and NES shells, incl. the variations for the Retrode Plugins. So they made at least 5000 shells in various colors for me already.

Now we're only mising the...

Mainboards


And yes, some good news here as well:
Global Components has populated the mainboards. Now it's time for Nikolaus to pick them up and do a quick test run.
As you already know, the 4GB RAM CPU boards have been finished a while ago and are working fine.

So a bug-free mainboard is the last piece of the puzzle now!

Well, these mainboards and CPU boards will be used to assemble Pyras with the transparent cases (I already have a set of ten) and these will go to the Prototype Preorders and some developers.

This will hopefully help to improve the software a lot as well.
I will also have a final (transparent case) unit with me at the GamesCom, in case you're planning to visit there.

Once we confirm the mainboards to be working fine as well... it's time to place the order for the mass production... and then it's only a bit more of waiting until we start assembling and shipping the units!

Yay!

I hope you enjoyed that little news post.
Remember the live video Q&A I mentioned? Well, I'll start a poll with different timeframes soon, so we can find the best time for everone.

Hopefully, you'll have some interesting questions for me ready by then!

Something has gone wrong.


Go to the original news post

I mean, yes. Seriously. I can't explain it.
I've received a few cases from Greece and from what I can tell so far, they are fine now.
The last two issues (rattling stylus and non-optimized shoulder buttons) seem to be fixed now.

As unlikely as this sounds... it has happened.
That can't be right, can it?

Okay, at least something is not correct yet: The logo plates are painted, not anodized (which looks ugly), but they fit - so getting the correct material is the only thing left (and I could get these made in Germany as well).

Well, what does that mean?


It means it's time to go to Greece once again - to start the production run of the 500 transparent cases and organize the move of the molds over to Uniqueplast, the company that will produce the normal production run of the non-transparent cases.

The good thing is: Unlike FormAction, that company does NOT close in August and they got 12 injection mold machines (FormAction only has two), which means they can produce cases a LOT faster.

Okay, so here's the plan:
I'm leaving for Greece Wednesday evening (yes, that Wednesday already).
On Thursday I'll meet up with FormAction to get the transparent cases produced. Later that day, I'll visit the company who produced the logo plate (so I can discuss the material).
Friday I'll be visiting UniquePlast. They have multiple plastic samples to choose from and we'll plan the normal production run already as well.
And then, Friday evening, I'm on my way back home again!

Tight schedule, but doable.

No more news on the mainboard front yet (I haven't checked the status with Global Components yet, they probably have the prototype run planned already), but some news from Nikolaus:

He has been working on another mainboard already, based on our upgradable CPU-Board solution:

This is basically a stationary mainboard where you can plug the Pyra CPU board on top. So you've got a nice development system at home, with Ethernet, SATA, USB, SD-CardSlots, etc.

This can be used as a software development board for the Pyra (as it's fully compatible), but it can also be used as small Linux PC. Once we have our first CPU Board upgrade, you can give your old CPU Board a new home with this one.

For more information and discussion about it, check his hidden post in that thread here:
https://pyra-handheld.com/boards/th...-rk3399-sounds-good.83004/page-5#post-1439447

Okay... CPU-Boards done, keymats done, cases done, mainboards just waiting for prototype production run... we're getting closer!

Oh, here is something I also want to make happen in July:

Ask the Dragon!


What's that?
Well, basically, I can imagine quite a few of you have various questions. Not only about the Pyra, but maybe about my opinion on the GPD Win 2, Gemini, etc. especially in comparison to the Pyra.
Or you could ask what I'm happy with the Pyra, what I'm not so happy with, etc. Or about the shop, what my hobbies are, what kind of games I play, etc. Whatever. Everything is welcome and will be answered to honestly :)

I plan doing this as a live youtube-event. I'm in front of the camera and everyone can ask questions over IRC, etc.
I'll stay there and answer them as long as there are interesting questions or until my coffee runs dry (and this could take a while...)

I've never gone live on Youtube, so I need to test that setup first, but I want to make that even happen in July - now that everything seems to be finally coming to a close!

I'll let you know!

Something has gone wrong.


Go to the original news post

I mean, yes. Seriously. I can't explain it.
I've received a few cases from Greece and from what I can tell so far, they are fine now.
The last two issues (rattling stylus and non-optimized shoulder buttons) seem to be fixed now.

As unlikely as this sounds... it has happened.
That can't be right, can it?

Okay, at least something is not correct yet: The logo plates are painted, not anodized (which looks ugly), but they fit - so getting the correct material is the only thing left (and I could get these made in Germany as well).

Well, what does that mean?


It means it's time to go to Greece once again - to start the production run of the 500 transparent cases and organize the move of the molds over to Uniqueplast, the company that will produce the normal production run of the non-transparent cases.

The good thing is: Unlike FormAction, that company does NOT close in August and they got 12 injection mold machines (FormAction only has two), which means they can produce cases a LOT faster.

Okay, so here's the plan:
I'm leaving for Greece Wednesday evening (yes, that Wednesday already).
On Thursday I'll meet up with FormAction to get the transparent cases produced. Later that day, I'll visit the company who produced the logo plate (so I can discuss the material).
Friday I'll be visiting UniquePlast. They have multiple plastic samples to choose from and we'll plan the normal production run already as well.
And then, Friday evening, I'm on my way back home again!

Tight schedule, but doable.

Metadatos en archivos de imágenes. (II)

Exiv2 es una librería C++ y una utilidad de línea de comandos para administrar metadatos de imagen.


Exiv2 es una librería C++ multiplataforma y una utilidad de línea de comandos para gestionar metadatos Exif, IPTC y XMP y el perfil ICC. Exiv2 esta disponible como software libre.

Es sin duda un proyecto digno de mirar, a la par con exiftool.

Instalación en Debian GNU/Linux:

En una terminal # aptitude install exiv2
Algunos comandos sencillos:

Imprime toda la información Exif traducida.
$ exiv2 -pt mi_imagen.jpg
Imprime toda la información Exif sin formato.
$ exiv2 -pv mi_imagen.jpg
Extrae la miniatura (Thumbnail) de la imagen y crea un archivo nuevo con el agregado thumb
$ exiv2 -et mi_imagen.jpg
resultado: mi_imagen-thumb.jpg
Eliminar los datos Exif de la imagen.
exiv2 rm mi_imagen.jpg

Gajim master available in Debian experimental


For users of Debian testing or unstable who like the smell of adventure and the taste of danger: Try$ sudo apt install -t experimental gajimand you will learn what fear is!

Seriously: Nothing to be afraid of, IMHO. Only a bunch of nice features, such as MUC avatar pictures! Still, it is called experimental for a reason, so expect rough edges here and there.

Official releases are still in unstable/testing/stable-backports, as always.
