For some reason, my Pumpa had not worked well and I couldn't post. Now, it seems working again!
Ed25519 key for SSH
I've been using Ed25519 key for SSH. For access to git.gnupg.org and git.gniibe.org, etc.
Today, I tried to upload my Ed25519 key to alioth.debian.org, and I found that it is not yet supported.
It seems that FusionForge 6.0 supports Ed25519 key, though.
BBG-SWD 0.02 released
TI's CPU has PRUSS (Programmable Real-time Unit Sub System). This is very good machinery to control signal accurately. I like that. BBG-SWD takes advantage of PRUSS to control serial signal of SWD protocol as fast, and accurately.
Instruction is executed by non-pipelined way, all in single clock (@200MHz). I enjoyed programming in assembly language.
The announcement is here: http://lists.alioth.debian.org/pipermail/gnuk-users/2016q2/000337.html
GnuPG 2.1.12 released
If you are using smartcard/token, please try it out. Internal CCID driver now uses new libusb-1.0 API. Besides, I cleaned up the error paths of the CCID driver, so, the needs to kill scdaemon should be decreased.

libgcrypt 1.7.0 release
It comes with the implementation of X25519 function on Curve25519. Together with libgcrypt 1.7.0, we can use public key encryption of ECDH with the Curve25519.
Good thing is : The key size is 32-byte.
I visited ShenZhen yesterday. This time, I visited from Hong Kong. The border is the biggest one in the world, by the number of people per day, I've heard.
Huaqian Rd is great, but all that I got is nano-SIM to micro-SIM/standard-SIM adapter.
It was my regret, I couldn't visit SDY again because of no time, this year.
This is my new project: https://www.hackster.io/gniibe/bbg-swd-93bcea
Background: I develop a board for Gnuk, that's FST-01.
Until today, I have to say "please use some JTAG/SWD programmer", although most programmers have proprietary firmware.
Now, with BBG-SWD, I can ask manufacturer to use this tool. This is huge benefit (for me) to ensure no questionable bit will be on FST-01 in the manufacturing process.
Vending machine with camera
In Ueno Station, Jake bought a bottle of water by a vending machine. I said, "Watch out!", because it has a camera. It is explained that the camera is there to recommend specific drink to customers recognizing them.
I suspect is is connected to the Net for possible surveillance. Well, it was an idle from Nogizaka 46 on the screen who suggested drinks.

Love Free Software Weekend
FSFE has a campagn for I love Free Software Day, which is my favorite.
This year, I wrote to Jeanne to say big "Thank you".
Her work is a sort of behind-the-scene. So, not many people know about. Yet, I believe that her work is one of most difficult jobs for our movement. So does every person who knows her.
Last year, I had another opportunity to help her, just a bit for FSFS3. Indeed, I was proud of that. :-)

Chinese New Year and New Board
Still, we have enough FST-01. Nevertheless, this is the season to consider new design.
So, here is FS-BB48, my new board for Gnuk/NeuG.
Just found that C-u can be used for M-x shell to have a different buffer for a session.
My first use of GNU Emacs was about 25 years ago. Still, I have things to learn.

Membership renewal of fsf.org
I figured out my membership was expired, when I use member.fsf.org for XMPP, and I renewed now.
I also wrote an annual report for the Japanese Translation of www.gnu.org.

Found a picture at SZDIY:
It's in May 2015.
The camera man was from some local media, but it was unrelated to my visit.
NeuG is getting popular
I found that at the site https://www.reddit.com/domain/fsf.org
NeuG is the hottest topic now. I added some links there.
Watch this video if you will be asked 'Not enough random bytes available.'
When GnuPG requires random bytes, it says something like this:
Not enough random bytes available. Please do some other work to give the OS a chance to collect more entropy!
If you don't have some device like this, you would need to type keyboard many times.
Here is another option; please watch our presentation at YouTube: More Entropy Please!
Furthermore, here is an article which has been evolved.
