H-yuge update from jsg@openbsd on getting radeondrm updated to Linux 4.4.129.

Lots of new APUs and GPUs now supported

Alright, time to get up, have some ☕️ and 🥐 and go unlock the hackroom.

Weird effects usually have a reason, and often this reason is very interesting. (And makes for good stories!)
I'm still trying to change my attitude from "Noooo, why won't it just woooork" to "Oh, maybe I found something interesting there".

Automate the setup, experiments, and analysis. Put everything into scripts and improve them over time.
Log all the information you can, especially packet captures. They will allow you to understand what happened in your experiment run.

Other thing this paper has taught me:
When you get a setup, test performance on all links, and understand why. 100MBit Ethernet card? 802.11n but only on 2.4 GHz? Frame aggregation disabled in the driver? (*side-eyes iwlwifi*)

I wanna see a Star Trek episode where they can't scan whereabouts of an away team because of strict local regulations of emissions on frequency bands. "Captain, we'll have to aqcuire an expensive license to broadcast on this frequency" 🖖 ✨

Another Rothney Astrophysical Observatory Baker-Nunn shot. This time of M31- The Andromeda galaxy. M31 is the closest large galaxy to our Galaxy that basically looks like our Galaxy. A mere 2 million light years away, M31 will collide with our Galaxy in about 4-5 billion years.

The @GIMP team has just announced GIMP 2.10.0 release candidate 2 is out with multi-threaded painting, rewritten UI themes, on-canvas panorama rotation in 3D, various improvements, and 40 bug fixes!
