apt-offline 1.8.0 released

Compulsory:

I am pleased to announce the release of apt-offline, version 1.8.0. This release is mainly a forward port of apt-offline to Python 3 and PyQt5. There are some glitches related to Python 3 and PyQt5, but overall the CLI interface works fine. Other than the porting, there's also an important bug fixed, related to memory leak when using the MIME library. And then there's some updates to the documentation (user examples) based on feedback from users.

Setting up appliances - the new way

I own a Fitbit Surge. But Fitibit chose to remain exclusive in terms of interoperability. Which means to make any sense out of the data that the watch gathers, you need to stick with what Fitbit mandates. Fair enough in today's trends. It also is part of their business model to restrict useful aspects of the report to Premium Membership.  Again, fair enough in today's business' trends.

LIO -fb in Debian

Compulsory: 

Keywords: 

Categories: 

LIO -fb is the new SCSI Target for Debian. Previously, we maintained the LIO tools from the pre-fork upstream branch. But, with good reasons, we've now moved to the newer -fb (Free Branch).

As the maintainer for those pacakges, I have a local LIO setup. Overy the years, I've been tuning and using this setup with a bunch of SCSI clients. Now with the new -fb packages it was worrisome for me, on how to migrate (Note: migration is not supported by the Debian packages) my old setup to the new one.
