Showing that I'm generally ignorant, I did not know about http://debdelta.debian.net/FAQ.txt which I will try shortly. Seen in description of https://debconf18.debconf.org/talks/66-delta-upgrades-revisited/
If you haven't watched the schedule in a while: yesterday they added a feature where the times are shown in your own timezone which is pretty convenient.
(also, the schedule can be shuffled around, altought most of the changes will probably involved non-videoed talks)

The online magazine New Bloom is running a crowdfunding campaign! I have followed this site for quite some time, and am very glad to have this opportunity to support it.
Here are two links to the writings on the site. Commentary and interview like these from the New Bloom, I feel, are badly needed by both Taiwan and the world.
"Taiwan’s Secret Nauruan Refugee Treatment Deal Is Truly Shameful For Human Rights"
"Interview: Linda Gail Arrigo"
"Basically, Apple added some code to iOS with the goal that phones in China wouldn't display a Taiwanese flag," Wardle says, "and there was a bug in that code."
This dates back to at least 2017, but it's not clear if this were the case when the Taiwan flag was first added to iOS. The same removal of the emoji applies to all of Apple's platforms in China: iOS, macOS, tvOS and watchOS.

Last Days of Dombo
昨晚經過丹菠，店老闆說只營業到週日（2018-07-08），覺得很可惜。這餐廳跟親友來過幾次，位於青年路近鐵路平交道旁的小巷邊上，一對中年夫婦經營的，台式家庭料理非常合胃口。餐廳是老屋，所在的大庭院相隔十步不遠處，還有一家 Free Will 沙發酒吧，店裡外都是電影道具、人像巨偶。去年夏天一晚跟孩子來過，都很喜歡。

就在這週五晚七點，台北慕哲咖啡：2018 多倫多 RightsCon 數位人權大會分享會。
What was happening in RightsCon 2018? Find out this Friday night in Taipei!
Feel very encouraged by the news and stories below:
CIP will work with Freexian, a multi-faceted services company that is leading the effort for Debian LTS, to maximize interoperability, security and LTS for open source software for embedded systems.
Freexian organizes a corporate sponsorship campaign with the goal of funding the equivalent of 1.5 full time position that will in fact be split over multiple Debian contributors who are established as independent workers.
As such, we think the best solution is to build an industrial base layer via cross-enterprise collaboration, because every company has similar problems. We can reduce the maintenance effort, exchange our knowledge and make the product better.
(Noted: Moxa is a Taiwanese company.)

People in Southern Taiwan, especially those in Tainan, prefer the Tongyong romanization method when transliterating local placenames. It is a delight to see these transliterations, as well as indigenous placenames, on the road signs. People here take good care of their culture.
