The Debian GNU/Linux project recently migrated the Intel graphics drivers version 2.99.917 into their testing release channel. If you’re on the Debian stable release, you’re currently using the more‐than‐a‐year‐old 2.21.15 driver. The older driver does not support Intel’s most recent graphics cards and you’ll either have a non‐functioning graphics driver or serious performance problems. Luckily, you can easily upgrade the graphics driver running on Debian stable (currently “Jessie”) to the testing version (currently “Stretch”) and leave the rest of your system on Debian stable.

Today is the Free Software Foundation’s (FSF) 9th annual International Day Against DRM. I’m taking this opportunity to share some thoughts how Digital Rights Management (DRM) influences my everyday life.
You aren’t really “buying” digital content like apps, movies, and games.

Nikola version 7.4 was released earlier today. It includes a few new features I’ve added including some limited prefetching instructions for browsers, tidy5 integration for HTML minification and prettification, and support for generating Atom feeds.
Have you ever copied a URL and left out the last character? This seem to happen a lot to the “l” (L) in “.html”. Possibly because it looks like the text insertion cursor “|”. Regardless, I and others do it all the time. So let us fix that.
