Making A Way For Education Through Clean Water

All it will take is 20 people to each give $12.75 from now until the #GRMarathon day to hit my goal and bring another 19 people clean water. timn.me/2Kx7NEr #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun

Bringing clean water to a village in Africa can mean the difference between their children having an education or not. Clean water has long lasting effects that will change the world. What better way to invest in the future generations.

Today Linux Journal shut its doors for good. All staff were laid off and the company is left with no operating funds to continue in any capacity... linuxjournal.com/content/linux

As a developer and, in some areas, a perfectionist I'm always after better practices when working collaboratively. An I personally find value in the history. As a user I appreciate Enrico's details on the proper way to keep a clean commit history.

Alright, so I'm $350 away from my $2000 goal, between my #HWI and Facebook fundraisers, for clean water. If I hit my goal I will sign up and run the crazy #GroundhogMarathon by @MarathonDonKern@twitter.com and @GRMarathon@twitter.com

Day Before The Big Run, Grand Rapids Marathon 2018 - Headed down to the Grand Rapids YMCA downtown and picked up my race packet and checked out the expo. Enjoyed chatting with some #HWI folks as well as some race organizers for other marathons that take place in the Spring. Who knows maybe another marathon besides the #GRMarathon will be in my future some da[...] #GRMarathon #HWI #marathon #Run4Water #WhyIRun

Keybase confirmed that it will soon support Mastodon. For those not familiar with Keybase, Keybase is a key directory that maps social media identities to encryption keys (including, but not limited to PGP keys) in a publicly auditable manner. Use Keybase to establish ownership of your social media accounts like Twitter, Reddit, Facebook, etc.

Finally got the @Mastodon logo PR submitted to the repo in prep for support, along with an updated icon & new @Snapchat icon since I was in the groove. Oh, all from a btw. :-D github.com/Automattic/social-l

This past May I had the opportunity to travel to Sierra Leone Africa and witness first hand what it is like for many people there to gather water to survive. So many are without access to clean water, or must travel for miles just to bring back 1 container of water for their entire family. I'm running the #GRMarathon once again this year with #HWI to raise money for more wells. Would you consider joining with me to save lives? #WaterIsLife #Run4Water #WhyIRun

I've been thinking about looking at the OS landscape again and see what could come of me resurrecting my old G3. Wondering if anyone has any recent experience.

#Tusky 4 will no longer be available for Android 4. It was no easy decision, but Tusky development and other Android versions will benefit.

I found this Dad's approach to teaching his kids coding an excellent example of meeting them where they are at. I've had a similar desire to get my kids into coding and as of yet made no progress. I might take this example and run with it.
