Some very bad pictures of neowise from about an hour ago, plenty of room for improvement in terms of camera, a 14 year old K100D with 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 lens.

I've just realised that I haven't posted any of my HRPT progress on here.
So, I bought a LimeSDR Mini (great SDR, rather insensitive though). It works great for NOAA, MetOP and FengYun, however it has a nasty spur at 1.7ghz which messes with Meteor. Currently I only do NOAA because the demodulators and decoders are not polished well enough for MetOp and FengYun.

Welp, my "Coming Soon..." page apparently releases very little carbon.

Got my first Meteor M2 reception today, as well as a even better NOAA image.

I'm slowly getting better at satellite reception.

The big problem with this one is that I started recording too late, which cut off a lot from the bottom.

I need to remember to do release updates, this is from 18.10 btw.

I got my first image from NOAA 19 today with a RTL-SDR and v-dipole antenna, I think it went pretty well.

I sadly only got a slice of the full transmission though, I'll try in a empty field next time.

Well time for a custom splash screen on my thinkpad.

This is the second result for "husky" on DuckDuckGo, congratulate this good boye for his achievement.

Suddenly had a flashback to the old "Piracy it's a crime" ad we used to have at the start of everything here in the UK.
After scrolling through the comments a bit I found this, and he makes a good point.

Trying out and I can say that I'm very satisfied with it, this was done at my school through a TCP connection.

What do y'all think of my 2 column Mastodon design?

Rant about registering a domain 

Note: I'm a minor.
The privacy policy states that you should be at least 13 years old to visit the website but the T&C's state that you need to be 18 years old to register a domain.

Mr. Stupid only read the privacy policy.

My has been identified as "fraud", so now I have to deal with them requesting my ID. This is going to be fun

I had a sealed DVD version of Theme Hospital. Might as well install it.

Finally moved to Kubuntu 18.10 with the latest "stable" kernel and the (sadly) proprietary nvidia drivers.

At what point does Linux Mint stop becoming Linux Mint and become another distro. running Linux v4.20.14 with Nvidia x server 415.27 and KDE plasma v5.12.7.

I just spent ~30 minutes installing a web server from 2005 for fun. Why did I do this.
