So I joined slack to follow the openmainframe project.

It's been long enough now that posts before Jun 25th are locked. No worries, I can unlock them by upgrading to one of the paid plans.

Is that how we want open source project communities run?

I don't know about you, but in my experience that's not very long. Heck sometimes even if you agree to do something it takes longer than that to do it.

Three days left at this company. I enjoy the people and work here so there's a bit of sadness.

But I'm pretty sure this is one of those times when I need to be pushed out of my comfort zone or whatever the current buzzword for that is.

i've now been on the phone when them for 15 minutes and she can't figure out how to deactivate my account or reset my questions either.

So I get an email that my apple id was just logged into from an macbook.

i don't have a macbook and that id was one i created to see about putting rockbox on an ipod. anyway, i don't need it.

so i figured i'd logon and delete the account. i can't get passed the 'answer security questions' so i click on the reset security quesiton button. that tells me they don't have enough informaiton. i'm told i can go to that also tells me they don't have enough information.

Barrier, the synergy replacement, has made a monster of me. I now have 2 rpi's and 2 laptops under my control from my evil couch.

Connecting to a hidden wireless network is harder than it should be in raspbian. Wonder why that is

hello from the rpi 4, 4gb. seems fair to me to say the rpi is now a perfectly serviceable as a daily driver for someone of my normal computing needs.

I feel I owe a thank you to rockbox and an apology to my phone.

To rockbox for the 10 or so great years of podcast service.

To my phone for falsely accusing it of not having battery life enough to serve as a phone and player.

I still prefer to have a dedicated rockbox player but this phone has plenty of battery life. Lasts 3 days for my usage on a charge.

2019: Coffee with DRM

I've passed some kind of milestone. I used to assume 'older' meant older than me.

Now when here that, I hope it could mean someone older than me.

@perloid Yep, I know it's "racking". I did that one just for you :)

It's one of those I like to have fun with because it has contradicting meanings. 'Rack' to stretch or improve your brain and 'wrack' for wreck or damage.

Then there's the meaning of rack to stretch until the point of failure.

To me this confusion is delightful.

Of course I've heard about hdmi cables having different specs but I'd forgotten about that and was wracking my brains trying to figure out why CEC wasn't working on a new device.

Finally I switched cables and viola!

Don't think the original cable is defective. Just a different spec I guess.

Here goes installing my mvs(mainframe) system on my new rpi.

Could Hawei be the source of the open source OS that supports a wide variety of phonse? Wouldn't that be a hoot?

boost if someone calling you a radical leftist is a compliment

i'm going to sin big time and have big old soda and bag of chips.

So I picked up an apple tv 3 today for $1.99 to see what it's like. It's total BS in that you can't add or delete apps from it. You just get what apple gave you.

Never ceases to amaze me how that kind of abuse can be so popular.

I just learned why I don't like frozen peas. They're not frozen sweet peas. I'm dumb.
