Teenage Engineering just dropped a mini-ITX chassis and my brain is going to melt

@lapor @Fairphone Haha :) I've preordered one! I was in the market for a new phone & the timing was near perfect. I'll let you know when/if I find out anything about the case.

Mazel tov!

Here's my contribution to solve this problem: Rouille, a French Rust programming language.

I have a feature in this month’s Physics World on the role of free-and-open-source software in physics research.

Do read it and let me know what you think!

@thor @eqe @technomancy Computers, pizza, tea, coffee. I'm not sure if there was ever a thread that was more relevant to my interests than this particular one.
