Figured out how to use a PocketCHIP as a serial console and booting OpenBSD 6.8.

RPI is powered from 5v coming off the CHIP battery, so both are now portable. :openbsd: :raspberrypi:

Quick post on setting up Pocket C.H.I.P., updating to Debian 10, fixing keymap and running a different window manager.

Why isn't xterm starting? Syntax in ~/.fluxbox/startup is correct.

oh, might help if I install it.

chip@chip:~/.fluxbox$ xterm
-bash: xterm: command not found

While waiting for my C.H.I.P. to update last night, installed OpenBSD 6.8 on a spare RPI3 and going to have it replace my older RPI that's running pihole. :openbsd: :raspberrypi:

Multiprocessor machine; using bsd.mp instead of bsd.
Relinking to create unique kernel...

gpg: decryption failed: No secret key

will haunt me in my dreams

Running list of what I'd use a FaunchPad for,

- Screenshot macro
- Lock desktop macro
- Mute/Unmute
- Login password (stored in keyboard firmware is secure right?)
- `pkill gpg-agent` combo

3 more macros to go until I can justify the 15$ purchase.

I don't use Arch (haven't even installed it before), but I absolutely love the Arch wiki docs.

fuuuu the underglow LEDs on my tg4x are stuck in non-cyberpunk colors. Suppose to switch to all purple when the num layer is activate, and now are red/green instead.

Must be a bad solder somewhere causing a short. Board works fine and no QMK changes, reset doesn't fix it either.

Really like the Pocket C.H.I.P. so far, planning to use it as a mini-terminal on my desk.

Next steps,

* updating Debian
* setting up mutt
* setting up amfora

@kelbot what is that terminal dashboard you use?

New toy arrived today, just in time for me to finish setting up my Mutt + GPG + Offlineimap setup.

GNOME 2 on Debian with Iceweasel, gEdit, and GNOME Terminal from 2008. :debian: :gnome:

This was my dual-monitor desktop setup when I was a sysadmin at UCSD, and would remote desktop into Windows to support Exchange and Novell servers.

Waiting for my Pocket C.H.I.P. to arrive, and in the meantime looking already towards my next project.

I have a GergoPlex by gHeavy that was a lot of fun to build. Lately I've been wanting a macro-pad for common shortcuts like lock-screen, screenshot, etc and may just impulse buy a Fauchpad since I have spare choc switches and keycaps,

I am really enjoying setting up mutt, now just need to get this solarized-256 theme to work properly.

The simplicity of protocol is brilliant! The bar to do hacky stuff with it is very low. Examples:

Bollux - A gemini client in bash.

Lace & sed - Microblogging on gemini.

I love how going from signing up to a Debian mail list has turned into lets locally sync all my mail over IMAP to Maildir to read it with mutt and GPG sign all mail.
