“All Mouth No Trousers”

[Dutch Lock Down Day One Hundred Sixty Five]

I heard a new phrase yesterday – $TITLE – and it made me laugh so hard that I wrote it down.


I know. I’m totally shocked, too.

Thx, A!

But first the news:

Tomorrow! Morning! OpenStack! On! Packet!

[Dutch Lock Down Day One Hundred Fifty Five]

Two weeks ago I was on vacation and not really doing the technical stream thing except then I had a look over the OpenStack on Packet repository, ended up auditing the entire README.md, making a series of pull request, became an official collaborator on the project and said I’d be running it the following week.

Dutch Lock Down Day One Hundred Twenty Three

[Look Who’s Writing In The Morning]

I mean, sure, maybe the news won’t be as available, but that just means there are fewer news links. Or none at all.

But first the news:

I mean, nltimes.nl consistently has the most recent news, but that writing titles in all caps thing is ANNOYING, PEOPLE.
