This months Cosmo

Woo hoo Gals, this months Cosmopolitan magazine is chocked full of nice tips and tricks to tantalize even the most frigid of geeks. Big Grin It looks like Ashley Simpson on the cover, but more importantly are the words: The Power of Pre-sex, Beyond Kama Sutra, His Butt, and 50 Ways to Have Fun With Your Man. I can't wait to try some of this stuff on my man!!!

The Power of Pre-Sex is this nifty article containing 5 tried and true methods for getting his motor running. It's all about tease and stimulation, or as they put it "5 Tricks that will totally rev his engine". Admit it, we don't want them wanting anyone but us right? So, number one on the hit parade is Let Him See Your Bod. According to their experts You Naked is the hottest gift for your guy, so let him soak it up and he'll sizzle to a higher temperature. It even goes so far as to suggest throwing him on the bed, straddle him, and give him a strip tease. Show a little boobie and cover it up. Show a little inner thigh and cover it up. Then when you finally do get to the point of revealing the goodies, do it nice and sloooow. Then tip two: Use Your Breath. Apparently slowly exhaling in just the right spots will create a temperature change in his skin and heighten arousal. Woooo baby. Number three is Play a little Rough. Men crave seduction as much as a woman and being aggressive or even animalistic is a "sign of lust and an indication that she's as into it as he is." They suggest siezing control and getting him into a "gotta-have-it now lip-lock." Number four: Tantalize with Touch. Cosmo contends guys liked to be touched and not just in that one area. They suggest butt massages and long but gentle scratches up and down their back. In fact mixing up hard massage and long nail strokes and surprize pinches seems to turn a fellar right on. And finally Bring him to the Brink. Yes, just what you imagine. Do what ever it is you do to bring him to the brink and then easing up, not necessarily stopping, but put off the good thing for a while. They say if you do this a few times it can really increase the pleasure of the final moment. That final one sounds like a plan, but I wouldn't classify it pre! Big Grin

This months cosmo has many many more features such as Cosmo's Condom Round-up, This year's Fun and Fearless, Confessions, and February's Cosmo Commandments. ...Available at your favorite newsstand or retail outlet.

  • Raphaël Hertzog: Freexian’s report about Debian Long Term Support, May 2021

    In May, we again put aside 2100 EUR to fund Debian projects. There was no proposals for new projects received, thus we’re looking forward to receive more projects from various Debian teams! Please do not hesitate to submit a proposal, if there is a project that could benefit from the funding! We’re looking forward to receive more projects from various Debian teams! Learn more about the rationale behind this initiative in this article.

  • Jonathan Dowland: Opinionated IkiWiki v1

    It's been more than a year since I wrote about Opinionated IkiWiki, a pre-configured, containerized deployment of Ikiwiki with opinions. My intention was to make something that is easy to get up and running if you are more experienced with containers than IkiWiki.

  • Ben Hutchings: Debian LTS work, May 2021

    In May I was assigned 13.5 hours of work by Freexian's Debian LTS initiative and carried over 4.5 hours from earlier months. I worked 16 hours and will carry over the remainder. I finished reviewing the futex code in the PREEMPT_RT patchset for Linux 4.9, and identified several places where it had been mis-merged with the recent futex security fixes. I sent a patch for these upstream, which was accepted and applied in v4.9.268-rt180.

  • Javier Martinez Canillas: The curious case of the ghostly modalias

    I was finishing my morning coffee at the Fedora ARM mystery department when a user report came into my attention: the tpm_tis_spi driver was not working on a board that had a TPM device connected through SPI. There was no /dev/tpm0 character device present in the system, even when the driver was built as a module and the Device Tree (DT) passed to the kernel had a node with a "infineon,slb9670" compatible string.

  • What you need to know about WebSphere Hybrid Edition – IBM Developer

    IBM WebSphere Hybrid Edition is a bundle of IBM runtimes for enterprise and cloud-native Java workloads. WebSphere Hybrid Edition enables developers to flexibly deploy both WebSphere traditional runtimes and Liberty runtimes (including the open-source Open Liberty framework), depending on their needs while optimizing the use of WebSphere Network Deployment, WebSphere Application Server, and Liberty Core license entitlements. WebSphere Application Server traditional is a trusted application server for Java EE applications. Liberty is a fast, lightweight, and modular framework for cloud-native Java applications and microservices that are optimized for cloud and Kubernetes and supporting a wide spectrum of Java APIs, including the latest Eclipse MicroProfile and Jakarta EE API. With WebSphere Hybrid Edition, you can continue to run workloads on WebSphere Application Server traditional reliably, build new services on Liberty and deploy them to cloud, and modernize and refactor your legacy applications whenever you’re ready at your own pace. The choices are yours.

  • Understanding the CentOS 7 filesystem hierarchy - Linux Concept

    We can compare a filesystem to a refrigerator, or any other storage with multiple shelves that is used for storing different items. These shelves or compartments help us to organize grocery items in our refrigerator by certain characteristics, such as shape, size, type, and so on. The same analogy is applicable to a filesystem, which is the epitome of storing and organizing collections of data and files in human-usable form.

  • Molly de Blanc: Welcome Red Hat as a GUADEC Sponsor [Ed: IBM ('Red Hat') rewarding, financially, those who attacked Richard Stallman and the FSF with hate and defamation]

    “As one of the many active contributors within the vibrant GNOME community, Red Hat is very pleased to also be among the sponsors of this year’s GUADAC event,” said a representative from Red Hat. “Community is about connections, and as we move into a world that is waking up from decreased social contact, those connections are more important than ever. GNOME remains an incredible part of the open source ecosystem, and the conversations made at GUADEC amongst users and contributors are a big reason why GNOME continues to be successful! We are thrilled to be a part of these conversations and look forward to participating in the GUADEC 2021 online event.” Kristi Progri, lead organizer of GUADEC, says “On behalf of everyone at GUADEC organizing team, I would like to express our sincere gratitude for the generous sponsorship to GUADEC, We’re happy they’re joining us again at GUADEC to help build GNOME and show the community what they are working on.”

  • How open source is lowering barriers to higher education

    Stepping into the college experience is a whirlwind. For many people, it’s your first time away from home and one of the first times that you are tasked with managing your life on your own. There are a lot of details you need to figure out. Are you going to live on campus or off? What meal plan do you want to use? What do you want to choose as your major? What classes do you want to take? And likely most pressing, how are you going to afford everything you need? When talking about the cost of education, there is one thing that is an issue for every student: the cost of textbooks. Textbooks for a college course can cost upwards of $100 apiece and, depending on how many courses you are taking in a semester, that can add up very quickly. In fact, the College Board found that the average university student spends more than $1,200 on books each year. For students it can be hard to justify the steep costs of books, especially when it comes to courses outside your field of study.

Sovereignty on a Federated System: problems we faced on GNOME’s Matrix instance

This post follows an introduction to Matrix with e-mails, where I explain that Matrix is a federated system. Federation can be either public or private. A public server can communicate with any other server, except the ones which are explicitely avoided. Meanwhile, a private server can only communicate with a selected list of other servers. Private federation is often deployed between entities that can trust each other, for example between universites. There often are processes to take back control of things when they derail on a server you don’t manage, because people on the remote server are contractually bound with you. But many organisations, and especially open source projets, deploy their instance in public federation. This means strangers from the Internet can interact with your server. Public federation comes with its own set of non-technical risks. In this post I’m going to guide you through the problems we faced on our GNOME Matrix instance. For each problem I’ll bring a solution. They will be consolidated at the end of the post in the form of a target we want to reach eventually, along with the acknowledgement of the limits of what we can do. Please note that these problems have more to do with careful planning and deployment than with the Matrix protocol itself. Read more
