@email@example.com I don't think the real posibilities on mobile world for Debian due its systemd integration. The last version is laggy and heavier than any other previous version I've seen. On gs someone shared an image of debian 9 which used 1,6 giga ram without any desktop environment, it was crazy...
Debian Day in Varese

2017-08-13T07:05:00Z via social.gl-como.it To: PublicAll of the videos except for one have already been published, so if you weren't there nor watching the streamings you can now download and watch them...
and why not contribute to the subtitling effort (not yet set up, but do come on #debconf-video@OFTC and let the team know that you are interested in contributing).
Debian Day in Varese
2017-08-03T07:54:44Z via social.gl-como.it To: PublicI'm stuck home instead of being able to go to DebConf, but that doesn't mean that Debian Day will be left uncelebrated!
Since many of the locals are away for the holidays, we of @Gruppo Linux Como and @LIFO aren't going to organize a full day of celebrations, but at the very least we are meeting for a dinner in Varese, at some restaurant that will be open on that date.
Everybody is welcome: to join us please add your name (nickname or identifier of any kind, as long as it fits in the box) on https://dudle.inf.tu-dresden.de/debdayvarese2017/ before thursday, August 10th, so that we can
get a reservation at the restaurant.
Allthetropes: a fork of tvtropes
2017-08-02T16:04:47Z via social.gl-como.it To: PublicNSFW, if by "not safe" you mean "you will waste your day on it and risk losing your job"
I didn't know that there was a fork of tvtropes, with a Free license (as opposed to the NC one that tvtropes has moved to):
I'm not sure if I want to keep an eye on it or if I should *stay*away*from*THAT* just like the original one.
2017-06-28T21:13:46Z via social.gl-como.it To: PublicHelp is needed both for development and tests, and most importantly there is a need for sustained commitment to help (even if it's just with testing the release candidates and reporting bugs).
If there is no interest, live images may just be dropped.
On brokeness, the live installer and being nice to people
2017-06-23T07:40:36Z via social.gl-como.it To: PublicThis morning I've read this.
I understand that somebody on the internet will always be trolling, but I just wanted to point out:
* that the installer in the old live images has been broken (for international users) for years
* that nobody cared enought to fix it, not even the people affected by it (the issue was reported as known in various forums, but for a long time nobody even opened an issue to let the *developers* know).
Compare this with the current situation, with people doing multiple tests as the (quite big number of) images were being built, and a fix released soon after for the issues found.
I'd say that this situation is great, and that instead of trolling around we should thank the people involved in this release for their great job.

Travel piecepack v0.1
2017-06-16T18:00:09Z via social.gl-como.it To: Public
A piecepack set of generic board game pieces is nice to have around in case of a sudden spontaneous need of gaming, but carrying my full set takes some room, and is not going to fit in my daily bag.
I've been thinking for a while that an half-size set could be useful, and between yesterday and today I've actually managed to do the first version.
It's (2d) printed on both sides of a single sheet of heavy paper, laminated and then cut, comes with both the basic suites and the playing card expansion and fits in a mint tin divided by origami boxes.
It's just version 0.1 because there are a few issues: first of all I'm not happy with the manual way I used to draw the page: ideally it would have been programmatically generated from the same svg files as the 3d piecepack (with the ability to generate other expansions), but apparently reading paths from an svg and writing it in another svg is not supported in an easy way by the libraries I could find, and looking for it was starting to take much more time than just doing it by hand.
I also still have to assemble the dice; in the picture above I'm just using the ones from the 3d-printed set, but they are a bit too big and only four of them fit in the mint tin. I already have the faces printed, so this is going to be fixed in the next few days.
Source files are available in the same git repository as the 3d-printable piecepack, with the big limitation mentioned above; updates will also be pushed there, just don't hold your breath for it :)
