DLT one (Damn Linux Tablet) - keeping an eye on this modular Linux tablet project on Hackaday


Two system-on-module (SoM) are being evaluated, ideally both will be supported. One has a similar SoC to the Purism Librem 5, the other is a Jetson Nano.

How cool would it be to have a modular tablet chassis, similar to the 24 year-old ATX standard for PCs?

Great turnout for Bitcoin & Beer (Denver). Shared my favorite onboarding books for people of all backgrounds.

Trying to demo v0.96 for the next meetup, but I keep getting an “Invalid transaction” error unless the sending phone has Internet access, defeating the entire purpose.

Any suggestions to make this work offline?

I'm so sorry to say it, but today @linuxjournal closed down for good. As you can imagine we are all so sad that this is the end. You can read my final goodbye here:

@fribbledom @lizrice @lizrice She’s done some great live coding sessions that I’ve recommended on multiple occasions to get people out of the “containers are docker” mindset.

Personally I learned via podman and many LWN articles, but seeing a working concept built up from nothing in under 90 minutes still left me impressed!

scratchy lets you quickly bootstrap a Linux distro in a (non-Docker) container and interactively execute something in it:


Currently supports bootstrapping Arch, but it's super easy to add more scripts for other distros! Contributions always welcome!


Slide deck is available here:

Based on feedback, I added content about alternative technologies and locating Exit Nodes.

A huge thanks to everyone who attended. We all made this event a success together, and I'm already looking forward to the next one!

Keeping with the cypherpunk ethos, it would be great if I could refer people to a hosting provider that accepts Bitcoin.

Seeking recommendations if you've got any, thanks!

Interesting historical detail:

There is only one BIP that has ever reached the status "Rejected". It's BIP 109 by Gavin Andresen.

See the table on the readme of github.com/bitcoin/bips

Plenty have been withdrawn though.
