My Philosophy of a Gnu/Linux Slackware user.

Hi,

I am a Gnu/Linux Slackware user. And that provides me with a UNIX-like system which affords me a stable Gnu/Linux that I utilize daily. Of late I have heard so many times that I/we can be bullies within the Slackware forum. From my perspective I find this as false and sometimes just that some members do not interpreted or appreciate our direct involvement with a stable Gnu/Linux distribution by our interactions with a friendly community here at LQ.

Second day of summer

Posted 06-22-2015 at 04:42 PM by onebuck

Well we are having some wet weather here in central Illinois. We are under a Tornado watch until 23:00 with expectations of severe weather throughout the night. I have been through my share of tornado and respect them very much. Preparedness is important!
Sun is shining now but the radar shows the storm traffic/path and we will be hit by some bad storms. I am tired of all the rain. We are at 11.5 inches and this is the last week in June. More than we need.

I cannot get caught...

ARM experiments awaiting

Posted 03-24-2015 at 03:40 PM by onebuck

Hi,

I have purchased a ODROID-C1 ARM SoC to experiment within my LAB. What I have purchased to date;
Code:
ODROID-C1 
HDMI Cable (Micro, Type D) 
5V/2A Power Supply  
16GB MicroSD UHS-1 C1 Linux (Pink Dot)
Chroma C1 Servo Board 
Heat Sink 
C1 Tinkering Kit
C1 3.2 inch Touchscreen Display Shield
Nice little board with loads of peripheral devices available to expand. I have several Raspberry Pi boards but the C1 is a better ARM device with more cores...

Spring is near!

Posted 03-08-2015 at 11:24 AM by onebuck

Hi,

Two weeks from today and it's officially spring!

In like lion and out like a lamb. So it seems we are going out as a lamb. Chance of the sixties next week. Starting to thaw here, mucky mess everywhere. On the farm this time of year was a lot of work getting fences mended and husbandry for the animals was a must in the spring. Shots for the horses along with worming. Hopefully the hay stack was high enough for the next 8 weeks. Since first cut wasn't until mid May....

Fun in the Sun

Posted 03-02-2015 at 09:49 AM by onebuck

Hi,

I've been away from LQ for a while!
Just got back from a beautiful vacation in Florida for the last five weeks to rejuvenate and recover from the cold here in the mid-west. We had to cut things short because of the pending ice storms & snow falls that were forecast. Driving in freezing rain & snow is not fun. We missed the storms and got home safely to a cold and snow covered trip. Road crews cleared a great path for us and mother nature accommodated us.
