Don't forget your firmware updates.

There were recently some important bug fixes for Intel firmware images.

On Fedora Workstation the Gnome Software Center will notify you about these updates and provide a button to install.

You have to reboot to apply the update.

If you prefer to do it yourself by CLI, here is the command:

fwupdmgr update

Running Arch, Gentoo, LFS or any other DIY linux distro? Check that you have fwupd installed:

#linux #intel #firmware #update


Calling this new Gmail mode “confidential” is—in our opinion—misleading. There is nothing confidential about email that Google can still read. eff.org/deeplinks/2018/07/betw source: twitter.com/eff/status/1020465

#FOSS is not just for nerds - it affects our 'non-techie' friends too! It's just not a technology issue - it's a global social issue.

Why do people keep trying to set my apartments on fire

All fine. I need off site backups

There has definitely been a fire

Just got back to find there's been a fire at my apartment block. I was out food shopping with mum and apparently someone's had a cigarette and lit the bins on fire. Think everything is okay.

After spending 3 nights away in London and eating far too many meals out, it’s nice to finally come back home. 🏠 🐶 💓
