Posting some pictures in the coming days from old computer tech I build roughly 35 years ago when 6502 and Z80 were the hotness (and to a lesser degree 8080, 8085 and 6800).

The core of my CPM 2.2 system. Z80 CPU, 64k memory, 4k EEPROM containing boot code and CPM BIOS moved into bank switched additional memory on a different card. Nominally running at 4MHz, however ran with 5MHz. Everything hand wired and soldered.

Ballroom dancing classes in times of Covid.

Each couple in their own box. With enough distance in between.

Styles reduced to Cha-Cha, Rumba, Salsa, kind of Slow Waltz, Jive, Disco Fox. If you manage, possibly a bit of Tango.

And no of the good ones like Slow Fox, Quickstep and Vienna Waltz.

Primary focus is in IPv6, but also works for IPv4. You can even use
your own domain, if you have a currently unused one.

Works like a charm. With any AVM Fritzbox in particular. Config is a
simple cut/paste job. One building block for your home cloud storage.
Highly recommended.

Not my own discovery, but from the German computer magazin c't.

Once a again a re-stream of a Tedesci Trucks Band concert at RedRocks Amphitheater from July 2019.

WIth killer solos by Elizabeth Lea (trombone) and Ephraim Owens (trumpet) starting at the 50m mark.

What a ton of musician ship on stage.

You know what, she looks like a burned mess, but she tastes amazing πŸ‘Œ

I've been most thoroughly enjoying the recent re-streams on YouTube of concert recordings from the Tedesci Trucks band during this Corona time.
IMHO one of the best live bands on the scene today.

I'm sitting here, occasionally clicking the refresh button of the DSL-modem status page and nothing happens.

Because my f***ing internet connection is completely and utterly


Now my home office life is perfect. Switching my keyboard/mouse between company laptop and private PC for 26€. Second try though. More cheapo first try failed completely.

XFCE4 (w. openbox), kitty terminal, Emacs (w. elfeed RSS reader), 2nd screen for entertainment (mpd, youtube) and most importantly gkrellm (can't live without it).

Comparison between Android app myWorkouts connected to el-cheapo BLE breast band (top half) vs. Honor Band 5 (bottom half).

Honor Band 5 is practically useless for higher intensity workouts (why is there a bump the first 15m). And the Huawei Health app is ok, but seriously, only export/sharing as pictures?

Is there any decent alternate app for fitness bands, that gives some form of exports (XML,JSON,CSV) without any cloud shit.

A little fun with kdenlive exporting to gif from latest baking result.

Since your at it (making , , etc), make yourself some and enjoy some probiotics goodness and an increased intake of vitamin C of upto 20 times once it's ready.

Decided to create a new sourdough starter although I'm already using one for more than a year. However I felt, it was missing a bit of oompf.

Looks promising after 1 1/2 day.


Although higly speculative (in a good way), I learned a lot more from
listining to this livestream than from all the other shitty excuses
of online journalism.
