I’d like to help others make better free and open source software so I’m making this standing offer: I’ll review a project's README for free. If you're interested, follow the link below. If you know of someone who might be interested, send the link to them.
At my work (Freedom of the Press Foundation) we're still hiring for a Senior Security Engineer to join the @securedrop team.
This is a work-from-anywhere role that's great for folks who have worked in security-sensitive software engineering roles for 3+ years (with or without the SecEng title).
Non-profit & open source jobs can be few and far between. HMU if this looks of interest to you or you have questions about it :)
"What is it like, being a time traveller?"
"Of course, you must be very careful you don't do anything in the past that changes the future."
"But going to the past really reminds you of all the great things we have now, like chocolate, or slood."

"freenode is IRC. freenode is FOSS. freenode is freedom"
reminds me of something.. oh yes: "freedom is slavery"
nothing makes programmers madder than having to use the shit that programmers make for a living.
We (Sequoia, https://sequoia-pgp.org) are looking to hire a devop engineer to maintain and expand our CI, setup some benchmarking infrastructure, keep our web services running like dump.sequoia-pgp.org, etc. You should care about privacy and free software. We'd prefer someone living in or near a European timezone. Salary is 43 kEuros/year for 20 hours/week. Salary is not negotiable. Hours are (salary scales linearly). If you are interested, mail me: 8F17777118A33DDA9BA48E62AACB3243630052D9 .
Waiting is so excruciating, when you don't know long it will still be. I ordered something from a German company on Thursday. The tracker shows it was picked up by the post office on Friday, and that it left Germany on Saturday. Since then, nothing.
It might still be in Germany. Or maybe it's somewhere else in Europe. Or on Earth. Probably not in Mars yet: it's only been a few days. I might get it this week. Or next week. Or never.
Our new printer/scanner arrived today. A Canon i-SENSYS. Plug into power, Ethernet, and USB, and everything just works. No need to install any drivers or anything. Everything was already installed, or wasn't needed, on Debian and Mac.
Take that, HP. I'm going to avoid their devices for the next many years. The old HP we bought in 2014 no longer works, on Debian or Mac: drivers can't be installed anymore.
Radiating opinions into the aether. Mostly one-way. All opinions are mine. I don't represent my employer. I mostly don't follow back (I'm easily overwhelmed by a flood of information).
