looking for Forum software

 So I've been thinking about running a forum for some miniatures games I like, because most of the interaction is on meta's Facebook. So I've been shopping around, my requirements are quite simple : - PostgreSQL as the backend - something available using a browser on a phone based on the places I interact "often" in the open source world, I decided to see how discourse would be. Unfortunately, a docker distribution mechanism isn't for me, as I don't intend to run a support docker platform as the OS for this project. And that's all what's offered on Discource website. I tried my luck at following this old blog post about running discourse docker less . Again out of luck, this turned out to not work because one of the gems won't build (said gem requires pyhton2). And so I gave up. Went back to looking at forum software comparison, only finding stuff hosted on one such platform provider. Have not decided yet if I want to continue or just drop the

Giving NomadBSD a spin

 Today I got a nice USB key, that does both USB-A and USB-C connectivity. So I followed the instructions on the download page . Tried to download from the London based mirror, but that led to a 404. Looked at the contact page and got all pumped up because they are present on, just a `join` away. Unfortunately, the channel is empty, but *registered*. So my options are either mailing list or forum. I went for the thing that works email. Email sent. I downloaded from anothe mirror and dded the image to the usb stick.  Rebooted and chose boot from usdb to get the following screen: And here you go for a second email on the mailing list. I think I might try booting in bios, not uefi mode, but would like to see if people on the project are active. Edit: Mirror issue is fixed and affected New York as well. I tried to boot on another machine and got similar results. Switching to legacy boot didn't work either.

Billet pour la mongolie ....

 Donc hier après trois semaines d'attente et une montée significative de prix. J'ai enfin pu après quelques essais acheter les billets via Turkish airlines.  J'ai commencé pas mal m'y prendre. En effet, j'ai posé mes vacances de manière arbitraire, sans me soucier du fait qu'il n'y a pas forcément de vol le jour en question. Ergo, quand mes dates de vacances ont été approuvées, j'ai vu un gros delta en termes de prix entre ma date de départ et le jour précédent. Je me retourne vers mon management pour demander un jour supplémentaire. Je ne l'aurais pas, mais on décale mes trois semaines d'un jour. Une fois la chose approuvée, je me dépêche d'aller sur le site de TK, que je visite en mode privée depuis deux semaines.  Je choisis les dates, les vols et je remplie le questionnaire passager. Je clique su payer et là : pages blanches, avec un message en anglais indiquant qu'ils n'ont pas accès aux vols (j'ai oublié de faire la capture

SKS pool is gone update you pius, caff and other tools

I'm too lazy to look for it, but the key servers that made the sks pool are all gone.  $ dig A ; <<>> DiG 9.18.21 <<>> A ;; global options: +cmd ;; Got answer: ;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: SERVFAIL, id: 58853 ;; flags: qr rd ra; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 0, AUTHORITY: 0, ADDITIONAL: 1 ;; OPT PSEUDOSECTION: ; EDNS: version: 0, flags:; udp: 1232 ;; QUESTION SECTION: ;    IN    A ;; Query time: 1255 msec ;; SERVER: (UDP) ;; WHEN: Sun Feb 11 15:34:10 CET 2024 ;; MSG SIZE  rcvd: 52 So all the tools that used to default to this won't work out of the box. For some reason, is still up. I have not used it in ages, so I don't know if it is still worth something. There is no more a pool but one server as far as I can tell : .  I spend a quick 20 minutes updating tools I found on Github : Github activity for the day.

Fosdem 2024 day two

 I started the day by attending Bogo 's talk about think that matter to your inner self. Things that make you happy, things that make you smile. For the first talk in Jansen on a Sunday, it was quite attended - bogo lost 5€ because of that. Plenty of nice music too - which was good for waking up. Next on my list was one in the webperf devroom. Unfortunately, it was too crowded, and many people were lining up, so I decided to skip. I moved my ass to building K. Supported the Fosdem by gifting myself with a hoody :). I then ran the KSP (Key signing party). I'm glad 13 people showed up. The party was quick and was probably the smallest KSP happening during a fosdem. I'm really happy that people showed up. Picture of people forming a circle in front of K building @ ULB to do a KSP Next was Florian 's talk . If there's a talk you want to watch after this FOSDEM edition this is the one, it explains how Mozilla tooled Firefox and the Firefox profiler in order to reduce th
