Another day, another flatpak. Currently building a "Lens" flatpak.
Putting https://k8slens.dev/ into a flatpak. Once this is done and working, submitting to FlatHub :)
Currently a bit undecided about the permissions, because it contains a CLI feature, but probably less than more permissions.
Something that really drives me crazy is how everything K8s related boils down to "curl this binary from our website and run it in your full user context" 👀
This should help.
Hallo liebe deutschsprachige Masto- und Fedi-Admins!
Wir sind gerade dabei, einen Matrix-Raum aufzubauen, der zum Austausch und zur gegenseitigen Hilfestellung von Admins im Fediverse dienen soll. Wenn ihr Interesse habt, tretet dem Raum gerne bei und verbreitet die Info weiter :) https://matrix.to/#/#mastodon-admins:tchncs.de?via=tchncs.de&via=utwente.io&via=wuks.space
We opened a poll for the default behaviour for new line handling in 2.0.

Apple hardware confusion
I don't understand why Apple sells 3000€ laptops with a USB-C cable that feels cheaper and breaks more often than one from a 300€ phone. I really don't understand, it doesn't make sense.
But even funnier is that a lot of the Apple younglings will buy such a bad quality cable again from Apple instead of buying a proper one for a fraction of the price.
Time to upgrade your GitLab
Generally speaking it's recommended to subscribe to the webfeed. If you also want to chat a bit about those updates, feel free to join us in our Git Hosters room:
It's a small matrix room with people hosting their own platforms and talk a out it. Hope to see you around :)

Nice little feature of Bitwarden:
Check what services you are registered to have 2FA options and check the instructions on how to enable them.
I wouldn't recommend to store your 2FA credentials along with te passwords in Bitwarden, but checking once a year, where you can set up new 2FA is definitely recommended!

A few days ago I contributed the "Data By-Pass Pattern" to the docs of the digital twin Framework Eclipse Ditto. With this I share a concept I introduced at my company to send bigger piles of data through a by-pass high-performance proxy while still using the autorization system of the cluster. I've added the PoC Code for this to the Ceryx Proxy project, an API configurable, nginx-based reverse proxy. Still need to bring it upstream though. #opensource

I started compiling my list of where to buy DRM-free ebooks in 2013.
Today, it includes 279 bookshops and was last updated on 17th of January, 2021.
Break free from the monopolies, and find your next favourite bookshop, ebook or author today!
Fancy, @threemaapp is now on Mastodon. It's good to see more and more apps and platforms creating official accounts on the Fediverse. It really helps the society acceptance snowball to go :)
@aral have you seen this? Raspberry Pi OS is now adding a Microsoft apt package repository automatically, including a signing key. See
Oh my... 🤦♂️
Das Raspberry Pi OS hat offenbar (klammheimlich) ein Microsoft Repository hinzugefügt.
I find myself quite often in discussions about newer packaging mechanisms like flatpak or snap. It appears that a lot of people love to mixup the packaging software with the package provider/distributor. Most claims made against both technologies talk about bad maintained packages, not about the packaging system itself.
There are many good things that went into stacks like Flatpak. The packaging philosophies of some #flatpak distributions might not fit everyone's taste.
If someone freelancing as Firmware Engineer with experience in Fedora IoT, OSTree and the generation of raw images for flashing devices like Raspberry Pi is interested in a closed job package I just posted an offering at UpWork. Feel free to contact me!
It's basically about adding (raw-)image build functionality for my open source project rpm-ostree-engine which allows you to maintain your own Version of Fedora IoT with custom modifications
