Software and Wetware: updates on my talk, @fedora change proposals, work, and ... oh yes I'm a new parent so I'll be off the grid for a few weeks! See y'all on the other side

This post is day 14 of my challenge

Come watch me and my colleagues discuss what we're working on for @fedora and at this year's @fosdem and CentOS Dojo! From speeding up to managing desktops and servers at scale, these should be fun.

Both free to attend. And our time slots should work for both EU and US attendees since we're doing this from our homes in the US.

New post: run a @fedora 32-bit
VM emulated on x86-64.

Don't ask why I want to do that (TL;DR - I explained it in the blog post). It's slow enough that I took the time to document for my future self.

Surprisingly there are some libvirt commands that are better documented in the administration guides -- which are, luckily, available without subscription.
