Hi,

It's snowing and wet with wind. Overcast with no sunshine for the past few days. I like to walk at least twice daily since I no longer live on the farm. Hard work that I cannot due any longer because of my health. I walk to my iPod music to get a good cadence for cardiovascular workout for my heart. I could use my bicycle but the area is covered with snow & ice. In my younger days I delivered mourning & evening newspaper routes using my bike with riser bars along with...

My new laptop

I just bought a lenovo t410 off of ebay. I think it was used overseas or in Canada, as it has a wimax card and wimax is not very huge in the U.S. (the big isps need to squeeze as much money as possible out of us after all). Anyway, I had an old toshiba satelite p4 (3.2ghz I believe) that I had to put linux on as windows XP ran the fans underneath constantly (fans underneath!? This is what caused the overheat problems on many toshiba models. The brand now goes into my do not buy category along with...

Well, for work at least.

I use Debian Live (Jessie) to do my work, at work, rather than using Windows as installed. The boxes are unfortunately P4s, so not exactly modern and snappy.

For the past few months, I have been using a desktop which I replicated from Crunchbang. Openbox, tint2, a simple conky config and their keyboard shortcuts. I've been happy with it, and accessing the menu with <Super>-<Space> is great.

With a new live build, something...

Datashack Update - Shelves!

Posted 01-01-2015 at 10:06 PM by ttk (Unpopular Positions: One Geek's Take)

I finally got around to hanging a couple of shelves in the Datashack, and I don't think the crazy person who constructed the building used proper 2x4 studs. The shelf brackets had holes on either side, about an inch apart, and I had to toe-in the screws pretty hard to get both of them to bite into stud. They must have used 1x4's or 1x2's or some other wacky thing.

Anyway, two shelves are in, and the equipment on that side of the building is on them (though I need to figure out something...
