Almost exactly six years ago I bought one of these Fuloong 6064 mini PCs. The machine has been working great ever since both collecting my mail and acting as an IMAP server as well as providing public services -- it's also keyserver.siccegge.de. However jessie is supposed to be the last Debian release supporting the hardware and the system's rather slow and lacks memory. This is especially noticeable with IMAP spam filter training and mail indexing. Therefore I'm looking for some nice replacement -- preferably non-x86 again (no technical reasons).
The Open Indirect Ophthalmoscope gets around these problems by using a digital camera in the form of a Raspberry Pi camera module. This camera, with the help of a 3 W LED, is able to image the back of the eye, snap a picture, and send that image anywhere in the world. It’s a simple device that can be constructed from a few mirrors, a cheap lens, and a few 3D-printed parts, but is still very valuable for the detection of ophthalmological disorders.

Flock is always a peculiar time of the year for me. For one it is one of the few time I get to meet with my colleagues but more than that, it's also one of the few time I get to spend a few days with fellows from this Fedora community that is so dear to me.
I have to say that this year was no exception. Flock 2016 has been really nice. I can, of course, only speak for myself, but from what I have seen we got a lot of work done and we are now ready to move forward on quite a few subjects.
One of the most important aspect of flock is the fact that an important part of the community gathers in one place, but we need to be careful as the conference only represent about 10% of all the Fedora contributors. So it is our duty as attendee to report to the broader community about the subjects that were discussed and the talks we have had.
It is of course practically impossible to mention everything here, for one because I took very little note during the conference, but I would like to point out the topics that appeared the most important to me during that conference.
Jack Wallen takes UbuntuBSD out for a dance to see if it can keep up with the competition. Find out if this new distribution stands a chance at surviving among the already challenging Linux landscape.
A decision in the GPL enforcement case in Germany between Christoph Hellwig (supported by the Software Freedom Conservancy) and VMware recently became public. The court dismissed the case after concluding that Hellwig failed to identify in the VMware product the specific lines of code for which he owned copyright. The GPL interpretation question was not addressed. Hellwig has indicated that he will appeal the court’s decision.
