"git commit -a" is what I call a cowboy-commit, and I still think git should flag and expose commits as such.

Not that I mind anyone using it (carefully), but it would make me extra wary when reviewing a commit. It should be the absolute exception, not the standard way of committing things.

Do it properly and always review your individual changes once more! Use "git add -p"!

You will soon love it and whoever reviews your code will love you for using it!

#FreeSoftware has a lot of potential in the developing world.

In rural India, 12 villages use #FreedomBox to host free digital services. Activists have re-purposed old computers into FreedomBoxes, mounted them on posts, and served entire villages with free wi-fi and digital services.

These rural #FreedomBox networks got covered in the Times of India.

READ: ‘Every old computer is a potential server that can bring Internet connectivity to an entire village’

Just heard that China has now blocked all access to all editions of Wikipedia. Apparently Turkey has done this too.

Fortunately, there's an app called #Kiwix which lets people download, browse and search the whole of Wikipedia (and many other wikimedia sites) entirely offline on their computer or phone.

You can follow them here:


Their official website is here:
