There are only 7 persons with my last name in 🇨🇿, all our family. And it seems to be very rare in 🇩🇪, too.
So it was quite surprising to learn about some Miroslav Eischmann, SK Pilsen official killed in a blitz in April 45. The first unknown-to-us Eischmann with a clear historical reference.

It seems that the shortage of chips is getting out of hand. , the biggest Czech online store, is selling a used AMD RX 5700XT for $4700. 😮

I wrote a little personal thing on the 10 year anniversary of GNOME 3.

I wasn't around at the time, but I'd love some stories from those days from the people who were!

Upgraded my work machine to 34 Workstation (beta). Downloading: 5 minutes, downtime: 15 minutes. Flawless as always.
I was a bit worried about the new sound server , but I turned on my Sony headphones, they connected and just play. Fine by me.👌

I installed #Fedora Workstation over the weekend and I'm really impressed. Not only with the result but also the whole installation process, #GNOME first run wizard, etc looks really professional and polished.

Our 1.5-year-old one can't use the mouse and keyboard, but she quickly learned that the laptop has a touchscreen and works like a phone or tablet. And she now navigates around YouTube by herself. 😄

I tried @matrix after a while and I must admit it has improved a lot. And I can use a native desktop client which doesn't consume a GB of memory (looking at you, ).
Sadly I still have to use the Red Hat internal IRC, so switching to Matrix would mean using two clients instead of one. :-/

The last contribution to #Signal's server software was on April 22, 2020. Due to the sudden commit drop to literally 0 it is no longer possible to seriously call current Signal versions fully open-source.

That has no effect on the messenger's end-to-end encryption or its overall security but it does compromise the trust in the Signal Foundation, especially when considering that they did not give any reason for not disclosing the source code.


Documentation for our house construction... And I thought software was complex. 😄

My wife has dozens of videos in H.265 from her iPhone which our TV can't play. So I finally fine-tuned hardware accelerated transcoding to H.264 on my AMD RX570 using ffmpeg just to find out that the outcome can be played everywhere, but the TV. And I have no idea why.
Those bloody video formats&codecs. 🤬

Dnes si můžete přečíst, jak používá Fedoru @RezzaBuh který několik let řídil její vývoj.

Vyšla 34 Beta. Vyzkoušíte nebo si raději počkáte na finální verzi? 😉

#chatcontrol is an EU plan to spy in real time on *all* your communication, including encrypted messengers like Signal. Let me put it bluntly: If the state doesn't trust me, I will never trust the state. This is unacceptable. Period.

As The Good Soldier Švejk, the most translated Czech novel, celebrates 100 years since its first publication Respekt publishes an article on this phenomenon in English.
