Father: Now son, always remember:
Father: blublublublub
[ Father jumps into sea ]

It has been [4] minutes since I last removed my dressing gown to appear more ~~ professional ~~ in a video call.

Linux stuff 

I'd like to try using my Android phone as a webcam. I really don't want to build out-of-tree kernel modules. The stock answer seems to be DroidCam dev47apps.com/ which involves out-of-tree modules. Must I really?

On OpenStreetMap, someone has traced the houses on one side of my street, and it's not the side I live on. 😡
