My wife made our son a cake cake for his birthday ๐Ÿ˜€

Still not sure what to make of the โ€˜whole topโ€™ ring pull.

Uggh cable. Paying for 300Mbps (down). Currently getting....

My sonsโ€™s paint choices for the scrap wood bird house we made a while ago are pretty funky.

Trying to convince my wife she might like the instance... as our linen closet looks like this.... ๐Ÿ˜‚

Now we actually have a console, this shop being within walking distance is dangerous ๐Ÿ˜„

One of the nicest things about is I get to settle down at a comfortable desk each morning with a coffee and or album on, and then open GitHub and Slack. Much more relaxed than a commute to a busy open plan space. Some Beck this morning ๐Ÿ˜€

Early family Christmas present. We can get pretty competitive over Tetris Attack ๐Ÿคช

Not sure how the people who tune their desktop's appearance to the nth degree find the time.... this'll do! ๐Ÿ™‚

... if you happen to be into Indie/Alt music is definitely worth a listen even if you aren't in Dallas Fort/Worth. I hop between it, BBC Radio 6 Music, and my CDs and Vinyl.

Only just noticed local NPR music station KXT links to Linux clients to listen to their streams... another reason to like them ๐Ÿ™‚

Old 97s were awesome. Itโ€™s pretty great having a free festival can walk to from the house!

Yay. Firewood was seasoned enough. Not that often to get a chance to light a fire at the start of November.

And now a bit of bit of coffee and German techno to stay awake while I prepare a release candidate.... ๐Ÿ˜„

Self contained cheap completed ๐Ÿ˜€ Now have amd64/nvidia, arm, and arm64 machines set up with a single plug for easy relocation whenever the office has to revert to a guest room!

Might be a sign I have too many computers now that I've installed xymon so I can see which are and aren't currently working....

Found myself with 30 mins spare on a busy weekend, so naturally broke out the cable ties! Getting my home lab things all strapped to a $20 shelving unit and on a DDWRT WiFi bridge so they can be removed from the guest room whenever its needed. ARM stuff done. Have a mini tower to add on the bottom, and an 8โ€ monitor for the top still to do.

Wheew. Might have very sore muscles tomorrow, but at least I have a wood pole to show for it. Am embarrassingly inaccurate swinging a hammer at the splitting wedge!
