As ever seems to be ever faster and ever more the case, there is an
awful lot happening in the world of FLOSS[*]... :-P

This month enjoys some fun accounts of my teetering over the cutting
edge of the very latest 4.17.x kernel on the marvel of Gentoo. As might
be expected, yes there /was/ an error... But what to do when no error
can be seen? Literally!

(There is also a fun video :-P ;-) )

All with a good fun giggle of how small a 'work-around' was needed...

(Even though much beer needed for the sleuthing! :-P )

And there's lots more should we have the time...

The talk and discussions are suitably technical and yet also
*non-technical* for fun for all and for everyone to follow!

All welcome and all before the Last Orders at:
