Personally, I rarely see that logo used anywhere, which is a shame. For the sake of promoting Open Source, and […][...] → Read more

I said the other day that I wanted Git t-shirts, because when I like something, I want t-shirts of it. I couldn't find any. So I made some: Git t-shirts The Git logo by Jason Long has a very permissive license (CC BY) that allows practically anything as long as the author's name is mentionned. […][...] → Read more

Every year, Christmas is a truly awesome event at my parents' with my sisters, wife and brothers-in-law. We offer each other a shitload of gifts while eating fine food cooked by Mom and drinking top notch wine prepared by Dad.
