- I don't have a TV either, but some of my friends and relatives do, and this means that I have to check what I say, *and* I didn't even have a chance to read the T&C and get a warning.
Unluckily, getting all of them to throw away their TV is not a realistic option.

- Movie buffs: Did you realize that TODAY is the date that Marty McFly jr travels back to in Back To The Future Part 4! #amazing #triviaUm, sorry to be the bearer of bad news folks but this one is false. For one, there were only three movies. Part 4 was never made. For another, none of the three movies that were made involved a stop in the year 2014. Part 2 did involve a trip to 2015 though and there is already a website counting down to that: http://www.october212015.com/ So, nothing to see here, time to move on.
New gpg subkeyThe GPG subkey I keep for daily use was going to expire, and this time I decided to create a new one instead of changing the expiration date.
Doing so I've found out that gnupg does not support importing just a private subkey for a key it already has (on IRC I've heard that there may be more informations on it on the gpg-users mailing list), so I've written a few notes on what I had to do on my website, so that I can remember them next year.
The short version is:
* Create your subkey (in the full keyring, the one with the private master key)
* export every subkey (including the expired ones, if you want to keep them available), but not the master key
* (copy the exported key from the offline computer to the online one)
* delete your private key from your regular use keyring
* import back the private keys you have exported before.

This Trio Of Short Films Actually Makes The Zombie Apocalypse Look Fun♲ Lauren Davis
Zombies, zombies everywhere.
Frequently, films set amidst the zombie apocalypse focus on the horror and desperation of the survivors' situation. But this series of gory short films takes a grindhouse-style approach, focusing on all the gruesome ways you can take those zombies out.

And I've just advocated you! :D (no sure why it doesn't show on the newmaint archive, though)
(also: super happy to have many application for non up DD lately, from well known contributors! is it contagious? or the promoting of the non up DDship is finally bearing fruits?)
>> Stephen Michael Kellat:
“What's the difference between an uploading DD and a non-uploading DD functionally beyond the matter of uploading?”
There's none. :)
Non up DDs can vote, have ssh access to Debian machines, can propose GR, can be delegated, can be DPL - or any other official role in Debian.

A 1932 Illustrated Map of Harlem’s Night Clubs: From the Cotton Club to the Savoy Ballroom♲ Ayun Halliday
Harlem’s undergoing another Renaissance of late. Crime’s down, real estate prices are up, and throngs of pale-faced hipsters are descending to check the area out.
Sure, something’s gained, but something’s lost, too.
For today’s , we’re going to climb in the . Set the dial for 1932. Don’t forget your map. (Click the image above to view a larger version.)
This delirious artifact comes courtesy of Elmer Simms Campbell (1906-1971), an artist whose race proved an impediment to career advancement in his native Midwest. Not long after relocating to New York City, he had the good fortune to be befriended by the great . Hi-de-hi-de-hi-de-ho! Check the lower left corner of your map.
You may notice that the compass rose deviates rather drastically from established norms. As you’ve no doubt heard, , but not in this case. Were you to choose those trees in the upper left corner as your starting point, you’d be at the top of Central Park, basically equidistant from the east and west sides. (Take the 2 or the 3 to 110th St…)
But keep in mind that this map is not drawn to scale. I know it looks like the joints are jumping from the second you step off the curb, but in reality, you’ll need to hoof it 21 blocks from the top of Central Park to 131st street for things to start cookin’. Hopefully, this geographical liberty won’t get you too hot under the collar. And if it does, well, it may be Prohibition, but stress-relieving beverages await you in every location listed, as well as in some 500 speakeasies Campbell allowed to remain on the down low.
If that doesn’t do it for you, there’s a guy selling reefer across the street from .
As you stagger back and forth between Seventh Avenue to Lenox (now referred to as Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Boulevard and Malcolm X), bear in mind that Campbell was the first African-American cartoonist to be nationally published in the New Yorker, Playboy, and Esquire, whose bug-eyed, now retired mascot, Esky, was a Campbell creation.
In the end, he was an extremely successful illustrator, though few of his creations are reflective of his race.
The map above, which did double duty as endpapers for Calloway’s autobiography, Of Minnie the Moocher and Me, is far closer to home.
Right above, see Cab Calloway perform “Hotcha Razz Ma Tazz” at the famous Cotton Club, in Harlem, 1935.

I never realized how big of a part of my life that IRC has been.
"Bash is a shell, or command prompt software, produced by the non-profit Free Software Foundation. Officials with that group could not be reached for comment. The Guardian
Really? Did you try emailing them? Maybe no one was near the phone to answer.
I have trouble imagining RMS not being willing to comment on software

LibrePlanet Ontario is a go!
I'm super excited for LibrePlanet Ontario. Met with Sergio and Rudolf on Monday night, and we've got a plan to get this thing moving!
If you know any software freedom lovers in Ontario, they should join the mailing list! (The three of us are based in Toronto, but we're hoping to get other teams in other cities running eventually if there's enough interest.)
