DKMS is a framework mostly used to build & install external kernel modules. However, did you know it could also be used to patch modules of the current kernel to apply a specific fix? Here's how: #Coding #HowTo #Linux #bluetooth

I need a job. While I'm applying to PhD positions, I can't wait around for that.

Nothing makes the reality that I have to do this hit hard quite like paying out 10k of bills...

Recent M.Sc. in Mathematics (Number Theory). I can do mathematics, software engineering, etc. I write English passably, and can limp by in German.

Goettingen or remote... I'll move if I must but it'd be a heavy burden at this point. USA citizen in Germany, Czech citizenship in the works but not yet in the bag. This is 2021, surely remote is possible.

Temporary or freelance work also a possibility. :boost_ok:

As much as I want to buy a nice electric car, this stuff makes me exclude Tesla among the possible cars to get.

Yes, I know other car vendors are also starting to make everything connected, but Tesla seems to be the worst, and there have been many examples like this in the past with Tesla cars.

I would appreciate it if you boosted this toot. :-)

Vaccinated on Sunday. OX/AZ. Tender arm. Spent the next day feeling achey, headachey, mildly fluish and very tired. 48 hours later: Feeling much better.

No superpowers or 5G reception yet.

A new feature by Andy Greenberg for Wired on the bizarre fight over diagnostic/control tools for McDonald's soft-serve machines is a fantastic, fascinating look at the intersection of Right to Repair with hardware hacking, corporatism, and franchising.

McDonald's ice-cream machines are notoriously finicky, so much so that people use bots to determine whether your local McD's machines are busted (5-16% of the machines are broken at any time)

Þe saga continueð: Apparently even if you do grab a second slot it'll be gone by the time you try to confirm. They're not held even for a few seconds while you book.

It gets better. If you _can_ get a first appointment, you have too blindly decide whether to try to book your 2nd at the same location or not.

Then you go through the same process again: If you can't find a second appointment that fits your first you have to start over.

I can see booking my vaccination is going to be tricky:

(In fairness there are other centres but they're all about 30km or more away, not yet decided if I want to do that in case I have a bad reaction on the way back)
