PureOS is FSF endorsed
I must have missed this in the Christmas rush: Purism's PureOS GNU/Linux operating system is now FSF endorsed. Very inspiring to see that the company is so committed to their goal of manufacturing a freedom respectful laptop!And, after certification, they added added a non-free repository: https://puri.sm/posts/purism-patches-meltdown-and-spectre-variant-2-both-included-in-all-new-librem-...
I wonder how this is going to go down...

My fight against CDN libraries
A very nice writeup and awesome work by David Revoy of the Pepper & Carrot webcomic:
A CDN ( acronym for Content Delivery Network ) library is often a single line of code proposed "generously" by an external service to let you link and embed a complex features, the easy way. A common example is Google Web Fonts:
<link href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Lobster" rel="stylesheet">
Paste this line in the header of your website and 'tadaaa!', you can use the font 'Lobster' to decorate all your texts. Easy, quick, efficient and fast to load. Merci Google. So, what's the problem?
... And I didn't had a CDN only for Google Web Font. I had also a CDN for Addthis (easy social-networks buttons), Gravatar (easy avatars), Font-awesome (easy icons), etc... As many, many website around!

jq, a lightweight and flexible command-line JSON processor
I've wanted a tool like this for a while. Saves me having to dive in to Python to select things out of JSON. https://stedolan.github.io/jq/
Maybe a way to disable Intel ME on newer laptops?

“At least it isn't one of the "The Mainframe is on FIRE!!!!!!!!!" e-mails I would get at work that would indicate a bad day brewing.”
That made me LOL.. I have a "The server is running on battery" alert that goes out to e-mail,XMPP, and plays a WAV saying "Help Me!! The server is running on battery" (it's a home server not a co-lo). Which usually end up firing off at about 4am.
So I feel your pain, at least a little.
